  1. Ukulele tab books

    Thread Revival just to say that this young lady would be welcome at my campfire .
  2. Sampling.. but is it proper music making etc?

    When the first moving pictures appeared a critic said " Cinema is an invention without a future " . Then they invented editing .
  3. Conversation with Marcus Miller.

    Little bit of fretless here , but his Producer talent impressed me also :- Producers say that the main part of their job is about relaxing everyone to give their best whilst steering them to give what he wants as quickly as possible . Here on live TV he treads lightly with the boxer , stops the audience , and delivers what the show wants , all with slick quick smiles . That is Producah Skillz right there . Amazing .
  4. GAS Reaction

    What about ...... a carrot on a stick ?
  5. pleasantly stumbled upon

    Pleasant Stumble whilst researchng versions of the John Martyn song :
  6. Self Awareness and the ability to play

    I went through a long phase once of thinking that I would never be able to play a fretless in tune until I realised it was the guitarist's inability to play an A major chord followed by a D major with both in tune .
  7. The nadir of my musical career...

    The late legend Lloyd Brevett , Godfather of Reggae Bass : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1maACujPu6w
  8. She only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain .
  9. The cattle prod method ( punishment for unwanted behaviour ) is not as effective in the long run as the Reward Good Behaviour And Discourage Unwanted Behaviour by Ignoring It method . Try the Reward With Fish method :- [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yS6qU_w3JQ[/media]
  10. Which band ? The one with the best listeners every time .
  11. Misunderstood songs

    Randy Newman talks about a couple :- 6:30 " You can leave your hat on " 14:12 " Short People " [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KX73Cwx61U[/media] In a similar way I didn;t get the humour in Leonard Cohen's " I'm Your Man " until I heard the original because I only knew the Joe Cocker version .
  12. Muting bass alters intonation

    Try the two-piece method :- [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWubx8OfcH0[/media]
