Funny. My bandmates and I play well enough that everyone that tries out for bass gets told they aren't good enough.

LOL

^ Dont even joke about this. I been looking for a bass player for 4 years. I'll call my local United States government offical and they will make Israel give up the holy land and you guys will all have to move to the US... JUST so i can get a bass player. (Because my government is on my side and every politician in America loves prog- its a fact)

^ Guess it must've been a new law because I was not aware of any prog fans when I was in the States. 

And wow, 4 years? That must be tough. Go on without one, to be honest. Do you really feel you music to be less effective without one? You can fill up the void with something else! Like bassoon. Bassoon f**king rules.

lol thanks. 

To be honest I hate this day. Bunch of annoying music and drunk people and fireworks and trash and other bloody sh*t. Considering Memorial Day (probably the most depressing day of the year) is a day before (with intention), I find it weird that people go this apesh*t. 

But yes. Thank you, you too (sorta???). Here's for the next 64 years!

Love the sun here, after 3 years of godawful NY suburbia winter. It makes everything so much better. 

Ahhhhhhhhhh god I really hate alcohol, but the cheap vodka really taste like ocean volcano mud.

Bassoon does rule... but as you probably know I have already written parts for bass, and we just play live to tracks or without bass live... it loses a LOT of its effectiveness. I need a bass player more than anything but I'm also going to be adding a keyboard player and a random instrument player so I think bassoon could eventually be worked in there. Haha

And wouldn't it be great if they just got rid of taxes on alcohol for certain holidays? Like you could just get wasted for cheap on Independence day or Christmas Eve?

This is a vid of me playing in 1987. I still play in the same way, but have progressed over the years into a more melodic jazz/fusion guitar player. I also play folk and classical. At this jam session I drank a pint of "Jack Daniels" because I was very hyper-active..so there are mistakes. This is just a stupied jam in E and nothing else. Other people seem to donate this crap to youtube and I have nothing to do with it.

Just learned a chord melody version of Coltrane's "Naima." My jazz skills are pretty basic but I found a nice arrangement and the song is very slow. It's all about expression. It's also, IMO, one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written. I'm doing my sister-in-law's wedding next month and need some nice instrumental pieces, so here we are.
 
 
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.

I'm playing a couple of tunes with my friends at my school's triathlon on May 22nd. I'm on guitar and the rest of the band will consist of Electric Piano, Tenor Sax, Bass and Drums.
We're playing these tunes:
- Sylvia by Focus
- Freddie Freeloader - Miles Davis
- YYZ by Rush
- Billie's Bounce by Charlie Parker

We are also doing an original that my friend composed.
Shall be fun! Thumbs Up Sax man

Hey! that's a very good list! Sylvia ...I always loved and the other 3 choices are grand. That's interesting! I'd love to hear it. I wish you would film the event and post it. That would be great..

^ That would be great if we did! I'll see if we can get the video crew down to the Triathlon the day of. I'll for sure post it on the forum if we do - I know you guys would enjoy it. I'm also playing guitar in our school's Jazz band at the start of the event. We're doing Birdland, Stompin At the Savoy, Eli's Comin and some other Jazz standards.
