    New Original Recordings

    Recorded at Fret Sounds in Graham, NC. More songs and an LP to come. Really stoked about the guitar tones we got. Ranges from a gritty growl to a wobbling leslie. http://soundcloud.com/jonnyalright http://soundcloud.com/jonnyalright/cat-eyes...

    Starting Retro/Indie Rock Band (NC)

    I am looking to start a band. I have 9 songs demoed (hosted on soundcloud) and 10 more songs written that are not recorded currently. These songs are to give you an idea of the type of musicians I'm looking for. I don't really like that they are online (they were originally intended for my own...

    Live vocal through guitar pedal.

    I've seen this before. Even at it's lowest gain it still seems to effect the vocal quite a bit and I'm worried about feedback through the monitor. I'd like to try one out but there isn't a music shop around that carries it. Anyone have experience using guitar pedals and a microphone?

    Live vocal through guitar pedal.

    I'd like to be able to just walk up and use whatever mic is already onstage, plus being able to control the amount of gain would be nice. Sometimes I may want a little more or less...

    Live vocal through guitar pedal.

    I'm on a budget and trying to get a little dirt into my live vocal sound. Talked to an engineer the other day who said a friend of his used the Boss Deluxe Reverb pedal and it sounded killer. I don't care as much about the reverb because usually that and delays are attached to a FOH...

    Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band

    There's an amazing documentary on the Captain I just saw called 'The Artist Formerly Known as Captain Beefheart'. Love how creative he was. It's extremely inspirational. dBa8bS_vZkM

    New MUSIC FESTIVAL. Anyone put one on before?

    September this year. It will be at the tail end. I have worked Lollapalooza before. The event is going to be mostly local and closeby regional acts so I think that this can be done. I've got connections and help with the sound/lighting, beer distributors, and photography/web design...

    New MUSIC FESTIVAL. Anyone put one on before?

    Ha, great plan! Thanks everyone for the thoughts... I do plan on having a good amount of security, hadn't thought much on bathrooms but that should have been an obvious. Working to get sponsors and whatnot, but I will probably have to figure out how to front some money. Hope this can work!

    New MUSIC FESTIVAL. Anyone put one on before?

    I've been wanting to put on a music festival in Greensboro, NC for quite some time, but my schedule has been so inconsistent for years touring with a band that it was never feasible. I'm no longer playing with any bands and so now I want to give it a shot. I've got figures for renting the...

    Marc Bolan had a real good live tone

    Born to Boogie is a great performance shoot that Ringo did with Marc Bolan. Here's a short clip from it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evEbAbQ2sQk evEbAbQ2sQk One of my favorite Marc Bolan tones comes from Cadillac off of Electric Warrior. Here's a cool live version of it...

    How to know when its your time to leave the band?

    It all comes down to one thing. Do the things you love about the band outweigh the things you hate? If the answer is no, then it's definitely time to leave. (Edit: saw Russ beat me to the punch, but that really is the thing to ask yourself.)

    What are your favorite hooks?

    Hook. When mentioning this word, most musicians know generally what you are talking about, but it can't be simply defined. It's a word that evokes memories and feelings, but can't be properly represented through just words. It'd be cool if people would share their thoughts on what hooks in...

    Brilliant lyrical couplets

    Iggy has a way of making such simple lyrics sound amazing, while some of his stuff, you could argue, is pretty deep. Like how in Turn Blue he just keeps blabbering on, "Black and strong, black and strong... black... strong." So captivating. One of my favorite Marc Bolan lyrics is his one...

    Wilco - The Whole Love

    I think it's an incredibly bold way to start a record. It's my favorite track on it so far. And I do agree (from just one listen) I feel like Nels is melding with the band more than the other records. Stoked to see them in Raleigh the day their record comes out.

    Stolen Gear from Fidelitorium - Kernersville, NC

    Thanks for all that info guys... I did not realize the Fender XII was given to him by his dad. It was an incredible sounding guitar, one that I felt like a little kid at Christmas that I was getting to use on my band's recording. But I didn't get to track with it at all before it was gone...
