I use power adaptors for all my pedals. But the rechargeable route works well too. You just never know when a battery is going to crap out on you. Usually it happens to me when I'm playing especially well.
Hate to tell you, but this tour they ARE playing what they want. I heard they're doing unique setlists for each show, and playing stuff they usually dont do. So who knows what you'll get. Still gonna be a great show though. I've seen them twice. And Zwan. And just Billy. All good.
She turned me into a newt............well....I got better. Back to topic, that guy was a dick. I've been playing for 20 years, and I actually consider myself not as good as people that have been playing a fraction of the time. I just enjoy playing. Why can't everybody do that?
It happened for me completely by accident. I tried and failed for a looong time, and then one day I was playing Stairway, and the lyrics just jumped out of me. I've been able to do it ever since. The easiest way is to play the song at half speed or slower, and really get a feel for where the notes and vocals mesh together. Then you can speed it up. I have very little confidence in myself, and I thought I would NEVER be able to do it, but now I have a huge list of songs I can sing to. Just keep at it and it will happen.
I had a similar idea today. I made a playlist out of my top 5 songs from my top 5 bands. I call it my 5 by 5 playlist. It is:
Smashing Pumpkins-Today Hummer Moleasskiss Dross Snail Anthrax-Only Room For One More Nothing Safe Home Bring The Noise Green Day-Going To Pasalacqua St. Jimmy Basketcase When I Come Around Christy Road Social Distortion-Don't Take Me For Granted Ball And Chain Cold Feelings I Was Wrong Through These Eyes Lit-Miserable My Own Worst Enemy Addicted Over My Head Perfect One These are all bands that I have seen at least once, as well. It's basically a perfect playlist.
I actually plugged in and rocked out today. I usually just goof around on my guitar unplugged, but I played for a good 2 hours today. I played: When I Come Around-Green Day Basketcase-Green Day Going To Pasalacqua-Green Day 2000 Light Years Away-Green Day Christie Road-Green Day Cowboys From Hell-Pantera Outshined-Soundgarden Sad But True-Metallica Jump In The Fire-Metallica Motorbreath-Metallica Higher-Creed Creep-Radiohead Room For One More-Anthrax Only-Anthrax I Am The Law-Anthrax Madhouse-Anthrax Among The Living-Anthrax Mayonaise-Smashing Pumpkins Crestfallen-Smashing Pumpkins Hummer-Smashing Pumpkins Plume-Smashing Pumpkins Down Here With The Rest Of Us-Social Distortion
Personally, I LOVE sex, and the crazier the better. BUT it has to be with someone I'm committed to. Not marriage necessarily, but a relationship nonetheless. I don't jump into bed with just anybody. Although my ex-gf and I had more sex after we split up than we did when we were together, but that's all over now. There has to be an emotional connection as well. I have 2 hands and a good imagination, I can handle the physical, and without the risk of pregnancy or infection.
That was pretty cool. I'd give it......an 8. I like to play it too, but the loud punked version. Still, I really think it works the way you play it. And I like your comment about not polishing demos. All my stuff is recorded live, the way I would play it if someone was in my living room listening to me. That being said, can you comment on something of mine? I have 20 something songs on my profile. Pick something that no one has listened to, that you recognize. Thanks! Hope the demo goes well.
Sometimes I'll start humming or singing a song to myself and 30 seconds later it'll come on the radio or t.v. or whatever. And I get deja-vu ALL the time. I also get the feeling when I'm watching brand new movies that I've seen them before, to the point where I know about plot points BEFORE they happen. Pretty creepy feeling.
I read words backwards, just to see if there's anything funny there. I turn numbers into guitar tab; 1023= C! I have to line up the seam on paper coffee cups with the creases in my fingers, I feel like I'm going to drop the cup if I don't. I read every word I see. Like packages, instructions, signs. Comes in handy when I'm bored. Always something to look at. I hum constantly. I crack my thumb knuckles with my middle fingers. Only those fingers. Probably a lot more, but I can't think of any right now
Sounds pretty good for only playing a few months. I listened to Mr Jones and Wanted. Sounds like you're not pressing the strings hard enough, and also probably strumming a little too hard. That makes a lot of extra noise. But it sounded good. Keep it up! I have a bunch of stuff you can check out on my profile.
Very cool man. You did all the parts really well. Like the vocals. Where did he get PM5K from? I know they covered it, but yours totally sounds like the Cars version. Stellar work, anyway. Just What I Needed is a lot of fun to play, too.
Ok. Way to stick to the thread, guys. The other day I found a Vietnamese coin at work. Their currency is called Dong. So recently I was talking to my ex-girlfriend and told her next time I saw her I'd show her my dong. She was kinda speechless until I explained myself. It was funny.
I don't have a PS2 either. It's the microphones you want. sell the game back to the store by itself. Make a few bucks. Anyway, when you record in Audacity, the file is a special Audacity file. You change the levels within the program, and when you're done, you save it as mp3, .wav, or whatever format you want. It records as one track, but you can split it into a stereo track, and then change your levels and gain and add effects or whatever, then when you save it, it all merges together. I don't know how familiar you are with Audacity, but it's pretty easier to figure out once you get in there and start messing around. Theres also a FAQ on this site about it. PM if you get stuck or want to know more. Happy recording!
because music relaxes me. cause I really enjoy playing and listening to music. It's just awesome, isn't it? beeing able to play ur favorite songs.
Yes. Being able to make the music you love with your own hands, there's nothing better. There's a lot of music that reminds me of certain times or events in my life. I always have to be listening to SOMETHING.
