I finally got a drum set in my studio! Hendrixrock97 and Turalyon23 had a set and my mom- Excuse me, landlord gave me the OK to put 'em in my studio. So they brought them over and we got 'em set up. I've been teaching myself to play and I'm not half bad for starting last friday . Soon I'll be making entire tracks by myself- playing guitar, bass, drums, piano and alto saxophone!
Right now we have a tiny bass drum, a snare, a high hat and a ride cymbal and we hope to get the rest of the kit over soon. The tiny bass drum doesn't have a very low tone so we need to get the new one and the rest of the toms over here.
I just got home from playing @ The Pageant, a club/venue in The Loop of St. Louis. It was beastly! The band was spot-on and everything was just too perfect! it was just amazing. Also, I was playing with my girlfriend so I got to be with her for 4 hours straight!
Yesternight I was so excited about my studio I couldn't go to sleep so I stayed wandering on UG for a while until I found the "which great guitarist are you?" quizzes. I ended up with Jimmy Page (I.E. GOD) then i took the "How good of a guitarist are you?" test and to my surprise scored 100%! The combination of those two led me to learn all of 'The Ocean' last night in about 15 minutes. Then I just 'Rambled On' (Zep reference!) Dar Interwebs, utterly 'Dazed and Confused' (I'm gonna stop this before it starts) for the rest of the day and here I am!
Thanks for listening to my tales of The Worlds Heaviest Ballon,
I just set up my recording studio in my basement. i have all my guitars, amps, cds and guitar books and magizines down there! I want to post some photos of it, but the file size of them are to big to upload! If anyone knows how to make them smaller, send me a message or leave a comment for this blog on how to do it.
howdy everyone. I want to know what you guys got for christmas, so leave a comment to this blog telling me what you got OR what you wanted badly, but didn't get. If you don't celebrate christmas, leave a comment telling what you celebrate instead.
I tuned my HSS Epiphone down to drop C so I could learn songs by Disturbed, Killswitch Engage and Bullet For My Valentine. I know Stricken, Indestructible, Inside The Fire, Down With The Sickness, This Is Absolution, Scream Aim Fire and Waking The Demon, respectively. ASAP I'm going to get my band together to make a recording of Stricken. It will be posted on the band.
