Let me recommend Rebecca Black "Friday". It will suck way more than whatever training you have in mind.

Just dusted off the chart for this one, havnt played it in years:


It's the chart that was chosen for us to practice individually in-between our practice/jam sessions.

I've been playing music weekly with some co-workers for about 2 months now. We read charts and play jazz. We got keys (me), a guitar player, a sax player, and now a drummer.

The best part about it is that everyone, independent of their individual tastes, styles and competency, is rhythmically sensitive, which is soooo important. That's one of those things you can't really teach imo: The ability to adapt and be sensitive to what everyone else is playing without having to stick to a beat or a tempo. I'm totally confident that if we continue to practice regularly and develop a repertoire that we could get gigs, not that it is necessarily a goal.

Oh, and a bass player would free me up a lot (esp. during my solos) as it dominates my left hand. But thats OK w me because I enjoy playing rhythm.

Love is the coal,
that makes this train roll.

Let me be, your everlasting light:



On a completely unrelated note, I've been trippin' on "Moon River" lately. I found a simple arrangement for it with chords last weeknd at my parents:



It's very pretty.

I wish I could use this in a clip.

*edit - strong bass so headphones/good-speakers are recommended /edit

Now why did an AARP ad pop up before it? For me anyway....

In "honor" of the whatever anniversary of the release of Sgt. Peppers I listened to this instead the other day:



Original vinyl, first issue with some of the songs censored.

I much prefer it to the Beatles album. The musical inventiveness doesn't compare.

And I much prefer "Pet Sounds" as well as that was the "bar" the Beatles were attempting to surpass. That is a singular work of genius.

crazy kicks lately. jawbreaker/leatherface for a week, then straight outlaw country, then silver mt. zion, now back to the basics (stiff little fingers, descendents, queers, shostakovich, saint saens). haven't picked up the bass since my arm injury, but I'm really hoping I get into the only school I applied for. I miss orchestra.
