    Here's a youtube a local TV station took of John Nava and I busking our duet at our local Farmer's Market ... (actually the City hires us to play there every Tuesday, but we still busk with high hopes ..)

    The Camcorder used seems to be antiquated...
    Not only with a horribly poor quality condenser mic, but with faded picture quality ...
    Notice how not only does my Guitar sound like I'm playing through a Tin Can,
    but the Congas sound like John's banging on Cheap Cardboard...

    YouTube - Joseph Lucido, John Nava Monterey Market. Rama P. Jama

    It's worth to watch, if only for the sweet kids dancing to our music ..

    Though here & there, you might be able to distinguish a somewhat OK
    line, lick or idea from a very laid back moi ...

    Ha.....you have that stunned "muso in daylight" look, Bro Joe!

    Crappy quality, but you guys sound great. That's a real nice idea for a duo act.

    How many tunes do you guys have tracks for? Do you do all your own sequencing?

    Cool indeed, sir.........

    So funny to see the little girl sort of gently bobbing, then giving into it and dancing!

    That's really neat!

    Yeah ... she totally steals the show ...
    Notice I keep looking up at the camera man
    & bobbing my head towards her so he can catch her dancing...
    precious 'eh ... Her little brother get's into it too ...

    That effect a good groove has on the wimmins seems to be to be something they're born with...
    :)

    The coolness of the track cuts through the sonic limitations, as has always been the case since the age of Victrolas. Very nice, and thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for listening my good man ...

    Yes, wimmins truly dig the grooves ... even da young ones

    It's amazing when we play on the street like that,
    how many folk just start dancing when they walk by ... Very fun ...

    Even the Scrub Jays seem to dig the tracks when I jam to 'em at home...:)

    Cool video. To my ears, the poor sound is probably due to the audio portion of the file being compressed way too much. It reminds of RealAudio circa about 1997. Fortunately, the performance comes through just fine.

    Yo "muso in daylight" look (too funny) ... & how 'bout my studio tan...
    Obviously haven't been in the sun much lately ...

    Yes, I do all my own sequencing ...
    Most pre-programmed stuff on the market is way too busy for my tastes...
    It is also too obvious to the listener ...

    So I try to keep the tracks at a minimum so it doesn't sound like
    there's too much more going on other then what the two of us are already doing ...

    Keeps it somewhat organic to a certain extent, since it's mostly us who you hear playing
    (Usually just 3 tracks and only sometimes a 4th pad sustain track for the bridge section, or something like that...)
    So I have a drum track, bass track and a keyboard track (but not all the time)
    Have about 60 tunes on tracks (have a midi data card ...)

    This is surely something you can do brother Jim ..

    Sometimes when a band has to do a dinner set before they kick in the dance tunes ...
    I'll be the only one doing it with my tracks, and maybe just a sax player ..

    Thanks for digging it bro ... :)

    I'm sure you're right about the audio situation...
    Looks like he was using a very old camera ...

    Thank you so much for enjoying it ... :)

    Groovy.......I appreciate the lowdown.

    So, what are you using for sequencing, and what do you use for playback on the gigs?

    The same unit actually ...

    The Yamaha sequencers with the piano keys right on top of 'em ...
    This way I can simply play my patterns using the different instrument sounds and then loop them into songs ...

    Without using a computer at all ...

    Thank you so much brother Chris ...
    I'm honored you enjoy my presentations ...

    Isn't she Bill ...

    Thanks so much for stopping in a leaving a comment my friend ...
    Truly appreciate it very much ...

    Yo Andy ...

    Just a few blocks from that very spot is where the restaurant
    used to be where I would play that standards gig with Carl years ago ...
    Right next to the ocean, every sunday for brunch .. Was a sad day when they closed that down ...

    Thanks so much for digging it ...

    And yes, for being still yet a bachelor, I do lead a rather nice life ...
    Not much mula, but that's doesn't stop the world I live in from being a great one...
