Fb-12 Pic

Had my 14 year old snap a shot and somehow (unbeknownst to me) he's got it attached to this email. Okay, I'll try getting off a shot of him with his 45 year old Harmony...mañana. I bought the FB-12 in the pic in (I think) '67 when McGuin of The Byrds got into my blood. Eight Miles High and Tamborin...

Re: I want to record...what do I need?

Someone suggested to me to take a course at a Community College for Digital Engineering. I thought "I've managed this far" so I shined it on. Then I spent...like $8000 on sofware...each CD coming with "phone book sized" instruction book. So, okay. I went back to school (at 50!) and have never regret...

Session Tip for Demo Vocals

Make plenty of reference tracks with your guitar. Go through the board and be as PLAIN as you can. Lay down single-string notations that the vocals are keyed with. Make make PLENTY of harmony tracks, again, one string at a time. Then...as you on the mic doing a take, get that particular reference tr...

Re: This is weird: electric v. acoustic

Thet truly ARE different animals... After moving Down Unda...NONE of my amps/synths/whatever worked on the 240v/50Hz juice. So I turned to the two acoustics I had but never really played all that much...a nice Martin and an Epiphone. I put a set of .09's on the Epiphone, retweaked the truss...and I ...

Huh? A socially acceptable steal?

It ain't right. No way, no how. I'd have another house somewhere if I wasn't robbed time and time again over the past 30 years. Sure, we ALL stand on someone's shoulders for one thing or another...but credit is due, at the very least...and so are royalties, for that matter. How unjust to "be a starv...

Old Man...Strumming.

I'm laughing, here! "Old Man...Strumming" sounds like a movie title. Hey...pushing 58 I ain't no spring chicken, either! Yep...BIG TIME osteo in me fingers! But... You seem to be all too intent on copying someone else's strumming techniques. Forget it. It ain't gonna happen. Play what you feel. Play...

G'day from the QLD/NSW hinterland...

Wondering if there's anyone "my speed" in the area. Was weaned on mid to late 60's rock...had a life of commercial music...and now feel the need to leave more than a pile of jingles! Don't care about making money...just want to co-ordinate a mutual swan song, of sorts! "Composition is everything"......
