Namm show 7 years ago
I went with some buddies one year. We got passes from a local guitar store that could not make it. It was a blast. Tons of gear... booths to try out amps at volume... Certainly a trade show, but pretty nice gear. We caught a show at night with a few people that showed... I remember Nils Lofgren showing up.

Hi Folks,

Last year my wife and I visited New York in October and asked if anyone had recommendations on live music to see. We are going again this weekend. Anyone know of a cool place for Jazz in NYC on Friday night? Cheers - Jeff

Music... clubs in NYC? 8 years ago
Thanks all... We had a nice time at The Living Room last night. Sweet sounds from a cool band with a pedal steel player. Unfortunately now it is time to leave NYC. Had a great time in this great city. - Jeff
Music... clubs in NYC? 8 years ago
Thanks folks... these are great suggestions. The Rockwood Music Hall sounds right up our alley. Will review the others too. My preference is singer songwriters doing their thing. Thanks again! - Jeff

Les Paul Dies 8 years ago
Man what a life... He invented the echo, right? How cool must that have been dialing up the tape heads and hearing that for the first time. I have always loved his recordings with Bing Crosby... I think they are from the 40s. RIP.
Electric guitar buying advice for a woman? 8 years ago
Totally agree... go to a big guitar shop and play a bunch of electrics on a decent amp. I usually choose a basic fender amp on the clean setting. I would start with Telecasters! They are a classic.

Song archive question 9 years ago
If I post a song and immediately turn around and archiving it, does it pull it from the list of recently posted songs that everyone sees? I would like to post a updated mix of a song and just put the link in the first post to the second mix. But I don't really want the song to make another journey through the Recent Uploads and Weekly songs list. Is that possible? Thanks - Jeff

Pandora radio 9 years ago
Many friends recently insisted that I try out Pandora radio at www.pandora.com. I have tried it and it rocks. I created a station with Mark Knopfler, Wilco and John Hyatt as seeds and have been listening ever since. I am sure you all know about this, but if not, try it. Are there other internet stations like this that you know of? Wow... I wish I could get it in my car.

question about drum loops in 6/8 9 years ago
Thanks. Yes I am building a drum part now with my keyboard. So far so good. - Jeff
question about drum loops in 6/8 9 years ago
Hi Folks -

I am working with someone on a song that is in 6/8 and I just realized that all of my drum loops from the Beta Monkey Backbeat CD are in 4/4. GB is filtering on time signature... makes sense.

Now I need to find some drum loops that I can use. The song style here is singer songwriter in an almost country or americana feel. I poked around the Beta Monkey offerings and it is hard to determine if a particular set of loops might cover my needs here.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a package that might meet my needs. This particular song is around 70bps. Thanks!

We are trying to arrange the song for a live band set and this was our template to give other local musicians.
