Re: Halloween gigs and band dress?

Wow dog talk about bad luck. That must have tried your patience. Notes you are still the man, holy crap nothing says STOP like a heart attack or stroke eh.

Talk Dirty to me by Poison

OK for anyone you familiar with this I have a question that is driving me nuts. I learned this song in standard tuning and it sounds right when I play with the record but when I've looked it up all the tabs ect I've found show it down a half step. I can't see any reason why they would need to play i...

Re: Just thought I'd check in....

Sounds like a great plan Vic you've get to get your self back up and in the game or all you'll do is go crazy. I've had some similar issues the past couple years and really have kind of kept to myself during this time, the only thing I've really done is stay with the band that helps a bit. But in Ju...

Re: Obituary: Lou Reed

I was a huge fan of Lou Reed back in the 70's, they had a special on yesterday morning about him, After that I had to break out some of his songs to listen to.

Rock and Roll Animal was/is one of my all time favorite albums.

We'll miss you Lou.

Re: Parody Song Liabilities?

Hmm just put it out there as Notes said just change the name(s), I really have a hard time believing someone and that someone is the person the song is about is going to hear it and do anything about it.

Personally I think you are way over cautious

Re: Nevermind plays Gateway Cafe tonight

Paul this is the 2nd time around and basically wasting 1 1/2 years getting songs down playing a couple shows and then that's it. We now have a singer/guitarist and we are all going to sing some songs so we'll see how this works out. We had our first get together today and it went very well but they ...

Re: Nevermind plays Gateway Cafe tonight

Al sorry for the late reply but I didn't have a computer until today. OMG is the only way to describe the show. This was in the singers hometown and he knew most of the people there and proceeded to just be way over the top and obnoxious. I was embarrassed to be there. The crowd, there were maybe 60...

Re: backing tracks with vocals

That's not going to be easy to find unless you somehow add your own vocals to a baking track. I've never found to many just minus the guitar.

I just use a CD and play along you should be able to tell if you are playing it correctly or not.

Re: What's Happening Everyone?

Pat it's hard to keep everyone interested in a garage band at least it was for me. When I started playing with other people a few years ago thats what we were a garage band and i was perfectly happy doing only that as long as we were actully learning new songs and were dedicated to play at least onc...

Re: Improvisation

I'm not a teacher but it's pretty difficult to give you an average when everyone advances differently and also when you say improvise at what level? the very basic or advanced.

Depending on the person it could take several months or several years but let's see what some of the teachers say.

Re: What's Happening Everyone?

Yea it's our management that is clueless. It's all about the $$ it has nothing to do with competency. Most of these guys have never worked at a company before all they did was take some SAP classes and viola they are qualified. But it's impossible to compete with someone living in India I couldn't l...

Roy long time no see. What's up? I have to agree with Notes it's been pretty dead but I think it was in decline well before the change to the webpage we have slowly been losing the regulars that used to post. The board definitely needs an infusion of posts soon or it's gonna dry up. As for me the sa...
