Re: I've got the "looper" blues

Assuming he played it in tempo :)

If a loop is off a touch, you will be fighting it all the way.



I tried one of those but the small speaker sounded terrible. I thought it would be awesome...

Re: I've got the "looper" blues

Jim, it's basically the same as the backing track parts you were playing here but the guitarist is triggering them with a foot switch.

And, he may have just recorded them prior to triggering them...

Re: Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

I'm a hack.

All I do is get the bass drum proper. Easy signature fills get played properly. Difficult ones come close enough (for me)

I realized a while back that I naturally tend to kick...

Re: Tempo comfort zones

I struggle with slow songs around 90 and under. Most people I play with do also.

When you are playing up tempo R&R and slow it down for a slow dance tune, EVERYBODY wants to push it. When you are...

Re: Playing with hiccups

I thought The Hiccups was your new band.

I might have to steal the name.

Re: Producers killed instrumentalists

I can see this but it doesn't phase me because, it is what it is.

In the olden days, I was offended by drum machines . Then I heard Phil Collins mention that he used them to help write music.

Re: Bo rants!

Some people are just too tightly wound.

If the payoff is worth it, just accept the things you can't change.

I'd be busting the guys balls to see if it would lighten him up a little.....but I'm...

Re: Worst song ever

What the hell dude? Rick Springfield was the king of pop for a while. JG was the prefect pop tune.

And Midnight at the Oasis was quirky enough to be cool.



The song gets some flak but it's...

Re: played (maybe joined) in blues band

Great example. Generally, everybody shouldn't be playing the same accents all the time. Sometimes it's our job simply to keep things in line.

This is one of the many things I've learned in the...

Re: Worst song ever

Just like the best songs, I can't come up with a #1 pick.

From the 70's, America's Horse With no Name would be in my top 20 based on lyrical content.

Re: What a satisfying first rehearsal

Sounds nice!!


I never played with a band that would even touch Steely Dan style music.

If they are doing it right, that pushes you to do it right also. Which is good....and bad :)

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

I have 3 things going on.

#1 is band mates from WAY back A couple of guys I've known since high school. We put in a LOT of rehearsal hours, a couple nights a week at my house. We play 60's thru...

Seriously dude?

If I cared enough, I'd take the time to go thru your posts and come up with an example of how your words were wrong. It would be totally unrelated and off topic but, since you...

Re: NFL Asks Musicians for Money to Play Super Bowl Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne

The question seems to be about compensation. I feel that the air time during the SB is huge compensation. Other companies are paying millions per minute for it. If it were my decision, I'd sell the...

Re: NFL Asks Musicians for Money to Play Super Bowl Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne

When did it become immoral to sell something of value?

Acts will pay to play at the super bowl. Vendors will pay to hawk their goods. Big companies will pay to put their name the stadium. It's...

Here's a question for you Bob.


In your business, generally speaking, if you had something you could sell, would you pay somebody to take it?

I don't pay someone to haul away my scrap copper....

Re: NFL Asks Musicians for Money to Play Super Bowl Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne

It's hardly a precedent. It's big business 101 and has been going on forever. It's basically product placement. It's done from the grocery stores to every big event in the nation.

Re: NFL Asks Musicians for Money to Play Super Bowl Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne

The people that find this ridiculous have no concept of business.

The super bowl is a business and the act is a business.

The super bowl is a bigger draw than ANY performer out there so, who...

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

I HATE playing them.

I think because of the (seemingly?) lack of structure..

Plus my soloing sucks.

Well, there is an hour I'll never get back.

Yep. I just spent a full hour on the intro to Blondie's Call Me.

Normally I just play something close but for some reason, I felt the need to play it as written. I'd heard it a thousand times...

Re: Insulting a member on the bandstand

1) he is committed.... roll with it.

2) don't fight, see #1 ^

3) Key words, the part. The responsibility is shared throughout the rhythm section.

It's a team sport. Sometimes you lead,...
