Re: tell me the truth

I found that, usually, the worse I played the more the audience liked it - that's when I'd get compliments. I used to figure that they liked to watch the struggle, like Romans liked to see gladiators...

Re: Guru snare competition results!

I liked his backbeat, was a bit surprised at the decision to play open hats but it sounded good to me, not your standard funk approach.

Mostly I just dug his take on it in the first half, where I...

Re: Guru snare competition results!

A big thumbs up from me to all who competed - just for getting through that wicked arrangement. I'm impressed by you all - you too Madge! To do what you did with your limited experience showed...

Re: Forum demographic

Jon, you're a statistician's dream :)



Well done, OT! Hope you're still updating :)

I expect that 46 wouldn't be far from the average age of people who use web forums.

Re: Lazy Guitarists...

Thing is, I've seen great gigs where the guitarist stops and tunes. The audience understands that tuning happens in music, they talk amongst themselves for a while and then the music starts again.

Re: Stage Etiquette

Don't be judgemental if somebody in the band makes a breach of stage etiquette. They are human. Smile, play on, and if the music is good then most people won't care (usually most in the audience...

Re: Comparing ones abilities with others

Same here, Larry. It's a compulsion. If we were dogs and most bands had one dog member, that's who'd we'd be looking at on stage.

Instead of sniffing their arses we check out the way they play....

Re: Lazy Guitarists...

It wasn't so long ago that tuning on stage and being a bit out of tune was no great drama. Dropped sticks. Long shredding solos. Singer babbling between songs. Noodling between songs. It was...

Re: Lazy Guitarists...

I could criticise all the guitarists I've played with and I expect they'd have reasonable criticisms of me. I guess we were at similar levels.

Re: Interesting minimalist style...

RS is a classy hip hop/funk drummer - beautiful player. I first saw him play on this clip with Jose James: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLm5IVeip0c

Sydneysider who did most of her gigging in the 80s and early 90s, restarted playing in 2007 and occasionally gigged after that before hanging up the sticks late 2014.

These days I focus on home...

Re: Comparing ones abilities with others

If you're competing with other people for gigs then being competitive makes sense.

Re: Rock and roll....over?

True, there was that exceptional circumstance with the meeting of cultures. One reason black music might have caught on with whites was a that matter of attainability. It's always easier for and more...

Re: Matt Smith in Under 2 Minutes.

All the best to you, Tom, and Matt. His intelligence, knowledge and insight and surely missed here. Even if Nashville turned out to be a bummer, the experience will probably turn out to provide...

Re: Rock and roll....over?

Well articulated. That's how I see it. Personally, I'm just fascinated to see what comes up next - whether it will be something new or a revival. I'm out of touch these days (being stuck somewhere...

Re: Rock and roll....over?

I'm sure it is. My tastes are much lighter. I used to like it loud and intense but when you get old you lose that robustness. I did anyway. I got more sensitive and the music I once loved now feels...

Re: 2015 Guru Snare Competition Entry Details - ENDS SOON!

Andy, I was surprised at what a tough ask it was. Not whingeing because I'm happy with my snare and need no other, but it reminded me of Tower of Power with those wicked accents and runs coming at...

Re: Rock and roll....over?

I like that quote! That's why I got into rock n roll! I didn't know how to play but it was okay because the others were beginners too.

So I can understand where rappers were coming from and...

Re: 2015 Guru Snare Competition Entry Details - ENDS SOON!

Thanks Andy, when I had a go it didn't sound too good lol.

Keeping it Simple is what I do. I play either dead simple or go batshit crazy. I have two modes. This song lies between those modes and...

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

Re: 2015 Guru Snare Competition Entry Details - ENDS SOON!

LOL! I just wanted to try it out. It's too complex and syncopated for me. Little Wing and My Baby Just Cares for Me are more my speed :)

Re: Brookmeyer: Jazz is One Human Being Talking to Others

Psychedelic, early progressive rock and RIO too - which were influenced by jazz improv - also enjoyed these kinds of musical conversations. Think of Jimi, The Doors, Henry Cow, King Crimson, The Who,...

It's ugly to us, but at least it has an audience, which is more than I can say for my music :)

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

That pretty well covers it for me. We're not all the same, we don't all feel the same, and the way we feel can change plenty along the way too.
Personally, these days I'm preferring instrumentals -...
