Aha! Of course, now I remember. 😀
Having lots of fun listening to your personal challenge Tom. What a wonderful on the spot performance. I really loved it , laughed along on the parts where you laughed, felt the emotions. It was like I was visiting a live show. Great idea and well executed.
Yes. I'm told the judges *will* accept that answer! No, wait, there's a scuffle... No. I'm sorry. Not enough equivocating.
Your songs looked lonely.
Re: >10ms, good guitarists who've dropped by my pad to track had indeed declared it unplayable. For a hack like me who paints everything in and hopes for the best, it's slightly less frustrating. But only slightly!
Thanks for the congrats for winning, bud!
It's not too late for you; you can crank out seven songs by tomorrow, right? 😉
Velcro Elvis! That’s a mean stubble I keep getting my angora sweater stuck in. Damn straight.
Just sent you an email. Will hook this thing up to some real speakers tomorrow and give a listen!
Jurisprudence - won't you come out to play?
Jurisprudence. Lovely word. The textbooks seem too heavy -- quite literally.
On the bright side... a lower risk of post-operative nausea? The silver [gut] lining.
But seriously, if it's been a struggle, then all you've learned to do musically is all the more impressive.
Thanks listening / commenting on "Wonderful Misery," and for refreshing my memory of the word, "limerance." Indeed, that seems to fit the character to a tee.
Hey Johnny Trem - keep it crispy!
Proving the old adage that those who can't learn teach. Wait, that's not it. But it could be.
So what's the mutation?
Ah, but sensei, we are all teachers for each other!
Just when I was trying to "drop the ego" as instructed, you come along and bestow such a beautiful compliment! Surely you are a teacher sent to challenge me. I am very grateful for your extremely kind words; they gave me such a lift! Thank you.
Oh, and yes I use a click track....BUT I record backwards out of necessity by recording guitars and bass first. I’m not all that steady to a click track on guitars but after that I turn off the click to let it be more natural because music is human, right?
Truth be told, I made a last second substitution and took the ribbons off of the overheads because I was nervous about the ceiling and put ISK Little Gems (with a cardioid capsule) on the overheads in the recorderman style and put them through presonus eureka preamps. I changed out the opamps in those for burr browns. I didn’t do anything different otherwise or even test it out beforehand, but it worked. Thank goodness. Thanks for the listen and comment!
I should have left a note inside it for its next owner/s to keep me up to date on its travels.
I used to have the bass version of that Teisco in your picture. It was complete garbage. 😀
👑🐴🎉 Birthday Donkey!
Welcome Johnny T!
Of the pic...
Hibachi Hal & Johnny Tremolo are Grunge rockers, Pete Vest is a New Romantic and in the back is Eddie Hassle: a Punk!
Cool profile pic... is that vintage electric guitar plugged into that log? or the weird hibachi camp stove?
Figured you would've caved first.
As you know, we only have premium, lake-surrounded, liberal, collegiate oxygen available here in Mad City so it must be something else. I'll send some over by post.
Yeah, I got hooked on the idea of getting one or one of the other Yamahas. Originally the cp or yp 40 caught my eye, so I investigated the cp 35 and 25, but like the cp30 the best and found one near cabelas on rt23. Took a drive and got it. It is heavy as hell, but I like it and it takes a distortion pedal pretty well to kind of pull off a Rhodes sound. The piano is cool on its own though, so I agree with you. It should show up quite a bit this FAWM.
Did I forget to ask you to do a track with me this year?
Please do a track with me this year!
I see you are friends with my sons. We once lived near you in Owosso. Perhaps we can find something to work on together.
Looking forward to some of that (ahem) easy-listening music.
As always, I cannot wait to hear what you bring. And as always, I sincerely hope we collaborate!
Hi Tom. I'm so sorry for you loss. I know how much good old FAWMku meant to you. I didn't know it that well but I heard a lot of good things about it. I wish you strength in the coming days and months, and maybe I can mail you tuna cassarole if it helps. If there is anything I can do, please, just let me know. I'm here for you.
My deepest and most hearfelt condolences
forever you friend, Klaus
Tom. Will. Rock.
Of course; I like working with your music.
Hey Tom! Hey!
MORE AWESOME MUSIC PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you! And how about you?
Yes, all pretty huge changes but good. A new son in May, a new house in May, and a new job in December.
Yes it is! How are things going with you? Lots of good change here since the last time we talked.
