    Tinariwen: uber cool Tuareg tunes

    Wow, cool to see these guys mentioned here, I've worked with them (producing/mixing)! I'd also recommend Lazywall - a hard rock band from Morocco that I've also worked with: http://www.lazywall.com/media.html

    Gogol Bordello

    You know, being a Russian immigrant myself, I'm not really that enamoured of their schtick.

    I have found THE MOTHERLODE Of Funk JAMS!!!!

    CDaughtry: nice take! Relaxed, and a nice clear tone. Stelligan: I LOVED this take!!!! Loved both tones, and the lines were VERY hip! Clayville: restrained and TASTY! VERY nice wah tone, also! :AOK Hottub: Nice take - one thing though. The flat VI doesn't work well over the 1... it works...

    I have found THE MOTHERLODE Of Funk JAMS!!!!

    Considering it was written/recorded in '77 or so, i'd say its the other way around.

    Can any Firewire interface hang with my current front end?

    Excellent choice - and for a 2 more inputs/mic pres and some other nice option, the Onyx 400F isn't a bad choice either! http://www.mackie.com/products/400f/index.html I have one - the Pres aren't quite as good as my Neve 1073s, but I actually like them BETTER than my FocusRite ISAs!

    A big thanks to John Ziegler!!!!

    Last night I came down to Ziegler's Monday night jam at the Baked Potato, got to meet Ziegler, Adam Stark, Chris Tondre and a bunch of other really cool folks! We played "Root Down" and a mutated "Cissy Strut" - I had an absolute BLAST, while feeling like the worst guitar player in the room ;)...

    Autumn Leaves scooby-fest: need comments

    This I've been doing all my life, on a more or less regular basis, but haven't really focused on it of late, as my life has been rather full. Just starting to get back into it now. And yeah, I listen to far more horn players and piano players than guitarists.

    Autumn Leaves scooby-fest: need comments

    For me, "practicing" music generally means opening up the real book and learning/playing tunes. As an alternative, I will sometimes run through the 5 forms of the 3 chord families (min, maj, dominant) in at least one key, starting with 7s then 9,11, 13, altered etc... though I must admit I don't...

    Autumn Leaves scooby-fest: need comments

    Thanks! I agree, except for the fact that I NEVER practice scales :) I practice music. My vocabulary is sorely lacking though. Most of the time I can make up for it with swing and phrasing, but after a chorus or two, ya gotta come with some ideas ;)

    A short, VERY fast Oleo...

    Thanks! I used my Ibanez AF-85VLS Artcore into a Blackheart Handsome Devil 15W head into a hotplate, then Line Out to my interface. I used Guitar Rig 2 to simulate a cab and for some reverb.

    A short, VERY fast Oleo...

    I'm usually helpless at these kinds of tempos, but this time I managed to get through about 2 minutes without choking ;) Ole! I abandoned the head 1/2 way through and I've got to do something about my "rock" vibrato :(
