Okay, looked through the thread and didn't see any other black people answering, so this great! It makes me an authority lol.
All jokes aside, I personally don't consider that word to be any different than like asshole or douche. It all depends on my relationship with the person. If I meet you at a bar for the first time and you're ballsy enough to call me a nigga, we might be fighting. Alternatively, if you're ballsy enough to call me a ****, we still might be fighting. If I don't know you well enough for you to insult me in anyway, we're fighting.
Just my two cents. Alternatively, if it's not directed at me (ex: Dude, check out this nigga/asshole/mother ****er on the dance floor) then I don't give an iota of ****.
Once you stop caring about what's "in" for the next few months fashionably you'll start feeling better TS. Also, the plus side to wearing "ugly band tees" is that when you don't wear them, people really notice.
1. I love heavy guitar driven music. Fancy guitar work gives me a boner. 2. The fans who think if you listen to anything else then you're a pussy 3. I love Metallica, Animals As Leaders, Megadeth and Dream Theater. I think thrash/prog would be my favorite.
Tried Bandcamp. My only complaint with Bandcamp was people could listen to the entire album for free without ever having to download. At least with Spotify, I'll make something (hardly anything, mind you) off of it. I'm not expecting to make a million over night.
So my band is finishing up recording our second EP, and, in my opinion, it sounds ****in' grand, dude. I'm the type of person that if it isn't up to my standards (yes, I know how vain it sounds, but that's who I am) then I try to convince the others not to really try to make this the first thing people hear from us, as the case with EP no. 1. But this is one turning out fantastic. Besides the point.
Really, I should have just gotten to the point here. Has anyone had their music stream on Spotify before? Any success with it? Would you recommend it?
Yes but if I did it right now I would be homeless. You're saying I should dump her the day I move? What kind of person would be so cruel as to make someone spend the holiday season alone when he's perfectly capable of just keeping his feelings to himself? Honestly I've been doing it for so long one more month will be a breeze.
So this is more of a saving your own kind of spine deal then? I don't mean that in a 'you're a total prick' manner, just an honest question. It sounds like you still care about her based on what you've said man. I get the, 'I just want a new girl every night' mentality, but it sounds like you've got a nice thing right now.
One man's opinion, I personally enjoy the single life and don't commit to relationships for years at a time.
My current bass player played guitar for years, but switched to bass in his last band after they got tired of flakey bass players. The cool thing is that he was a great guitar player, so we can get some pretty strong bass lines.
My friends and I have a little joke about how you know when you've grown up. Whenever one of us says something to the extent of, "I don't know man. Like, she's hot yeah, but I don't just want to sleep with her and leave," we usually follow with, "Dude, is this what growing up is like?"
Just a couple o' crazy university kids havin' a laugh.
I was in your shoes, and I went to school. In a way, I regret it, as I still play in a band and we could be some much better and farther along had each of us not have commitments. You can always go back to school man. Just remember that.
I'm being serious guys. I knew an online community filled with musicians would be a fantastic place to vent my problems on, so I registered an account. I'll give the guys in my band a good talk, and keep you posted on what happens.
I hope someone in your band sees this thread, talks to the other guys, and they kick you out. It'll fuel you to make something on your own.
Hey everyone, I recently made the switch from ss to tube heads (yay!) and I'm looking to replace the tubes. I'm playing through an older Blue Voodoo, which, despite what everyone seems to claim, sounds good. Right now, there are some Ruby 6l6s in there.(From what the guy I bought it from, he says they're 6+ years old). They sound a bit loose and flabby, and this seems to be a characteristic of them. I'm looking at either:
JJ's 6L6GC, Tung-Sol 6L6GCSTR, or Tube Amp Doctor 6L6GC-STR
Any kind of input or preferences would be helpful. If it helps, I like a clean sound with a round low and sparkling highs, and for a distortion tone, I like a tight bass and a bit mid-dy, and there are Groove Tube 12AX7s in the preamp. Thanks!
I realize there's an entire forum for customized gear, but this is more of a general question. I just finished building a 2x12 cabinet. Wrapping tolex sucks when you get a piece that's not quite large enough so you have to improvise a bit. Regardless, I'm proud of how it came out, simply for the fact that it's mine.
Feel free to add pictures and stories and what have you. Poll coming soon.
