  1. Playing a G that way omits the 3rd Edit. Unless you have a keyboard player in the band providing the 3rd.
  2. I've been playing mandolin for only a couple of months. It's coming along slowly.
  3. "Little Sister" - Elvis Presley [video=youtube;55ak4ubAbIY]
  4. "And It Stoned Me" - Van Morrison [video=youtube;cuyENi0cPjg]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuyENi0cPjg[/video]
  5. "Who Are You" - The Who [video=youtube;24wWxeywfZo]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24wWxeywfZo[/video]
  6. "Book of Love" - The Monotones [video=youtube;OS1LFGGGazc]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OS1LFGGGazc[/video] Can't believe they picked that name. I remember the song from my childhood, but didn't realized the group had such a terrible name.
  7. "My Sunday Feeling" - Jethro Tull [video=youtube;2shXfsqOXwM]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2shXfsqOXwM[/video]

  10. Yeah. I say so too. Tempo is way more important than key. Still if I noticed that our first five songs in the first set were in the same key, I'd suggest to my bandmates that we swap one of them with something of a similar tempo in a different key.
  11. How important is it to not have too many songs in the same key back to back in your set list?
  12. I mic my set with two overheads positioned about 5' off the ground pointed at right angles to each other. The line of sight along the line directly in the middle of these two mics is pointed pretty much at the drummer's crotch. I find these two mics do a really good job of capturing both the cymbals and the toms so I frequently don't use the tom mics in the final mix, but if I do it's overheads panned 9:00 and 3:00, kick center, snare slightly right of center, hat further right of center, 1st tom right of center between snare and hat, tom 2 slightly left of center, tom 3 further left. But like I said, I frequently don't use the tom signals because the overheads pick them up quite well. If no tom mics, then overheads as before, kick center, snare 1:30, hat 10:30
  13. Reminds me of a keyboard part I played in a song my band did. I was using a tenor sax sample but I played it totally legato with no rests. When I listened back to the recording I realized that there's no way a sax player could play 16 bars straight without taking a breath.
  14. "Here Comes the Sun" - George Harrison [video=youtube;yGKPHFrHVVY]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGKPHFrHVVY[/video]
  15. In another thread Anton said that He hated the production of almost all of the recordings made in the 1980's. I want to present my case as one of the greatest production since "Dark Side of the Moon". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brothers_in_Arms_(album) My favorite from that album.
  16. "Mr. Spaceman" - The Byrds [video=youtube;BuLI6B7AU-M]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuLI6B7AU-M[/video]
  17. [ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","title":"MRQaWqq3rnHRJtjVHpQuhj-650-80.jpg","data-attachmentid":32514432}[/ATTACH] '69 Black Strat that belonged to David Gilmour
  18. Something I frequently do with a compressor, usually on vocals. I'll have the uncompressed track and a compressed track. Bring up the uncomp vocal to just below where it should sit in the mix, then bring up the comp track until it's sitting correctly in the mix.
  19. Del Shannon originally recorded "Runaway" in Am. The engineer thought the song should be faster and sped up the tape to a few cents shy of Bbm. My band plays it in Bbm. The guitarists capo the first fret.
  20. "It Was an Accident" - NRBQ [video=youtube;yDo1FAZRrwg]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDo1FAZRrwg[/video]
