Cooking up structure, Building a cake,...?: building a new song from scratch, to mix metaphors, was fun last night. We cooked up a fine drumbeat and guitar section - and i suspect it is a bit difficult to nail down a drum track when the guitar drops out for 16 and plays for 16 and drops for 16 again and again - but our last take shows Dave capturing that oddity. sometimes, when doing duet tracks, we stop when one of us stops - you know, so we can start another take, as that silence probably signals one of us lost it and are waiting for the next attempt. So after we managed to capture a glorious guitar and drum track, i went to the bass and Dave went to a synth. Gorgeousness!

Our ears were tired by then, but i think we have some wo...
Support local music by supporting the owner that booked the band: How do we show our support to local music?

I was at a show last night to show support for a band that three close friends and another good friend perform in and so i went to the club, bought a pizza i wasn't hungry for and gave slices to friends as they visited the table. typically i don't sit, but the place was somewhat busy and so i needed a table to order and when one opened up, i grabbed it and ordered. See i stopped drinking mass quantities years ago so spending money to move the cash register - that is how the owner recognizes a band did well playing his or her club - is not so easy, i try to be creative. I used to by a soda and tip $5 maybe twice the night, but that does not move ...
Catching live music, supporting live music!: a local band that is drawing a good and kind crowd is playing this evening in Dayton. I plan to make the trek even with our first measurable snowfall piling up in the driveway. It's been a couple months since i have been able to catch them. Arrows of Neon, a line from The Grateful Dead song Truckin' is the band and some of the members i love to support in whatever musical thing they're making happen.

So it is, at best, very likely i'll get to be shakin' my bones in a Dayton club. It is a good one, called Ladder 11 - as it was once a firehouse. the pole is still there, and some excellent furniture - i recall one night taking about a hundred pictures of feet of fancy tables and amazing cha...
Cravings and making it happen! : I am craving orange cake. i found a box of orange supreme cake and started looking for orange frosting, none to be found. so i bought the orange vanilla confetti type and plan to add some orange flavoring.

I am not sure i need an orange flavor frosting, but i am planning to go for it. Dave contacted me and asked about collaborating, i can't tonight, so hopefully we'll be back at it soon! I want to run my bass guitar purchase ideas by him, he is a wealth of knowledge that has never steered me wrong. Well, i have to go before i am really done, but more again, soon! Love yas! j

Eric, thank you for the comment on the video!

Also I just noticed your message about the forum - it died on Soundclick but Larry Ludwick resurrected it elsewhere.

Just when I find some good folk in a forum, the forum has been discontinued. Alisha, d.bill, and Daniel and so many good people, best wishes to you all, eternally!

I uploaded a new song last week and plan to upload some older stuff soon. The songs are often collaborative efforts with Dave DeVore, but the new one is a solo effort. This new song features a theremine and an Epiphone Dot Deluxe, a Fender Vibro-Champ, Shure's sm-58, a big muff pedal and a Tascam dp-004.
