Lift Off

Finally after all these years of jamming with different people i've found the perfect spot. Wedged between an incredible bassist and a super guitarist. Both of whom aren't wankers which is the highest pinnacle of musicianship...without switching over to jazz. There is only so much one can be impressed with technicality. After that you need feel... soul.

Its so difficult to find people who know exactly when less is more. I've found mine. At our very first gig, something magical happened. i cannot really describe it. One of thoses where no song is introduced, most are songs no one in the audience knows, there was no noise while we played, rapt attention and something really special happening on stage.

Thank you mysterious forces of the universe. I will be eternally grateful...

Sounds as if your patience and determination is paying off; I'm so happy for you! Make sure you play a few dates in the US for us all the way over here... You'll have to keep us posted regarding how things settle into place for you with this new set up.

Oo, that sounds nice. Economy is difficult to achieve with any form of art.Maybe how you play (after you know the technicalities) is who you really are. I'd love to know which songs you guys ended up singing.

And someday, when you'd be a star, we'd ask for an autographed CD. How about that?

Personally, there is a need for wankers. Basically because it increases the level of the standard axe slinger. But I can see your point. People off Chops from Hell don't interest after 45 mins of your first visit.

Went to Al Di Meola's concert last night. He can play melodically, but his 70's Race and Danza still rocked the roof. My mom actually enjoyed the concert !

You should check out Kiko Loureiro (angra). Nice wanker with a good amount of feel and melody.

But yeah, I know that special feeling: you start a phrase and the other person can end it perfectly. You dont need eye contact to tell whose time it is to solo. Its understood, its the music its complete ..... damn I envy you now.

Still looking for mine here ... till then .... I got Cartman .... "Aiieee ...Goddamn you tree hugging Hippies !!!!!"

By the way, Jazz is the only genre where you can hit a wrong note and every one will say "Ohh he played a flat 5th over that progression thereby implying a B7b5 ... how clever!"

I know exactly how that feels, and have been privileged enough to have played with that 'magic'for around a year or so....but he leaves for London in less than a month, and the rest of the band dissolves around him.

And so the search begins anew.......
