Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

We will be the best band in the universe.


Wait, that will be our name. Half way there already, see?

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

Woah Scavenger, awesome. Plus it's from the best of theirs with 666. Lost them after that, don't even like Piece Of Mind. Think that's because the sound is less garage.

And yeah, a HM band would be a whole lotta fun. Where do I sign??? lol

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

Changing guitar strings. Oh how I dislike this process.

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

^^^ I don't mind changing strings on my acoustic, but my electric?  Tune-o-matic tailpieces are a pain in the ass to change strings on.  Despite my best efforts it's always a hair lopsided when I bolt it back on. hmm

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

Tune o matic is the worst. I have one instrument with that set up. Major PIA!

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

This guitar, custom made by Vox for the Beatles, and used by John Lennon and George Harrison during the Magical Mystery Tour period, is up for auction. Expected sale price is about $200 to $300K. I'm in!!

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

I hate tune-o-matic bridges. Most of my electrics have wrap-around bridge. Just my SG has the tune-o-matic.  I have changed so many strings in the 15 years I've been playing that it's not even funny.  Before I decided to buy coated strings, I'd go through a set in 2-3 weeks...

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

I so despise having to change strings on my tune-o-matic Hamer Slammer Explorer that I tend to leave them on until they break and I have no choice BUT to change them.  I bought a new set of strings for it last summer and am just waiting for the ones already on it to fall apart. lol

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

I only change strings when they start sounding crappy.
Which is like every 6-8 months.

Hey yes, the advantages of a bass. big_smile

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

I go through a set of strings on my gigging guitar about once a month. The strings I use (Thomastic-Infeld GR112) have a wound 3rd string. It starts unwinding after about a month of hard play. Which sucks because they are expensive strings (about $20) compared to say Ernie Balls...

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

20 bucks expensive???
Bass string are insanely expensive like mad. Lucky they don't wear off as often as guitar ones. I'd be in trouble.

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

Don't know if you cool cats like that crazy jazz jive... but I'm a jazz guitarist and got to play with a great Boston based jazz guitarist yesterday at my jazz brunch gig. Jon Damian, who teaches at Berklee and has written a couple of jazz guitar books was on the bill. It blows me away every time I get to play with him (he was filling in for the other regular guitar player in my trio). Anyway I recorded some of the gig. Here's the first tune of the first set called Dearly Beloved. I play the head and first solo, then Jon solos and then Dave, the excellent upright player, kicks a great bass solo. I'm so lucky I get to play with these monsters.

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

Wow, what a chance you had!!! Must be stuck in your memories forever.

And the song well I Dearly Belove it. lol

Th bass is just freaking awesome. Yes everything else is but I play bass myself so that's what stuck more in my head.

But what and amazing tune really everything fits together pretty damn good.

Thanks for sharing, hearing that just waking up starts my night VERY WELL!! smile

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

Thanks Punk! Yeah man, I can't wait to get to that gig every week. And starting after Labor Day they are going to have us play twice a week. Sunday brunch and Thursday happy hour. Dude, that's a great weekly allowance : )

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

Wow that's freaking great.
Consider yourself lucky cause when you don't step on stage anymore like I do now you miss it like mad. Nothing like it.
Mmm, well maybe sex and alcohol. The 3 together is paradise. lol

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

We started the Thursday gig. Maybe I can get of few of you onto the jazz bandwagon! It's really the native music of North America and all the blues and rock, R&B and everything else stems from it. We were swinging with this tune "In Walked Bud".

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

Since I picked up my first bass in thirteen years a little bit back, the guy who owns the store I got it from has emailed me twice about other bands in town looking for bass players.  But neither of them play stuff I'm into.  It's like every band around here is only into southern rock or country.  Nothing wrong with that, I'm just not into it.  Granted it's Hazard, KY, but still, there's got to be some hard rock, metal or alternative bands around here somewhere.

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

^^^
Hey, that's what it's like to live in Hazard. lol
But seriously, it's the same in here. Very few Punks in here. And you gotta get the chemistry alright which I haven't found.

And NO I won't start to play Country, I like it more and more but never enough to actually play it.

And getken, kick ass song, I shared it on my Facebook wall. I love when the bass snaps in the middle of the song. I like slapping bass. That's why My treble is very high on mine.

Re: The HM Musicians' Thread

I did a lot of scouring on craigslist to try to find like minded musicians in my area. And also headed to open jam sessions. It is hard finding musicians. But persistence pays off.

This is me at the gig the other day:

Anytime I wear a lei, I play better. Anytime there is a hot hula girl next to me I play better. Anytime my bandmate plays a Uke, I play better.
