  1. Yeah, I know. I hope this doesn't ruin our friendship. It's really not about the musicianship for me, I just don't like their songs. They just do nothing for me emotionally, and if that doesn't happen for me, I don't tend to dig deeper. Unless it's a band that I grew up listening to. I dunno man, I just don't "get" Steely Dan. It's like a girl that everyone says is super hot, but does nothing for me down below. ya know? Steely Dan is the Megan Fox of music for me. I don't hate the Doors, but I'm not all gaga over them either. The songs I like of theirs are the ones with the more creepy vibe, like "The End" or "Riders on the Storm". Even then, it's really just an appreciation of the vibe, not really impressed by the lyrics or anything.
  2. Steely Dan, Chicago, Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead, probably a lot more I can't think of...
  3. @StenbergerHack I can't stand Steely Dan. I've never heard anything by them that I wasn't annoyed by after 30 seconds.
  4. It's funny, right after I read your comment onelife, "My Sweet Lord" came on the radio. I too find a spiritual inspiration in George.
  5. Yeah, I think I picked up a lot of chord choices and phrasing from him. Plus, I really love his songs.
  6. My biggest guitar influences are probably, in no particular order: Pete Townshend Stuart Adamson Billy Corgan George Harrison Then I take a lot from and enjoy watching/hearing: Steve Howe Alex Lifeson Steve Hackett Tom Morrello Kim Thayil
  7. huh. weird. I think the "s" in the https part may throw it off. I just changed it.
  8. here's my take: http://soundcloud.com/mattsams/hcjam1
  9. I watched the documentary, but I haven't had time to read the book yet. There's some good advice in there, but I don't know if there's enough actual strategies discussed. I'll probably have to rewatch it to comment more in-depth. Thank you for making this available though! Matt.
  10. "I see. I didn't design it... It's a free site." Man, don't take it personally-- I'm just saying that if it isn't converting, there are places for improvement, and that the design is one of those places. no, I'm sorry, I didn't mean it like that! But, I was looking around, and discovered that I can modify that site quite a bit... so, I'll have to mess with that. Thank you for your response though!
  11. "Any thoughts?" Are you talking about this site: http://somnistatic.bandcamp.com/album/in-the-heart-of-the-sun I do freelance web dev for a company that does SEO... they spend a lot of time and money tweaking up websites, because once you start to measure outcomes you can see what is working and what isn't. Getting more traffic but fewer "conversions" which is a fancy SEO dude word for whatever you're trying to get people to do with the site (buy some shoes, sign up for an appointment, give you their email address, look at another website) is a very common problem that you can measure on about any website where you have specifc goal. Now, you can get a lot of traffic, but if you turn off folks for whatever reason (from having poor design to a bad offer) they ain't gonna convert. I ain't gonna do a line by line crit of your site, but to me, the design is at least one place where you you do better. The fact that people will decide if they want to listen to your music based on the first 4 seconds they're looking at your page is, to me a really strong reason why I don't even have a site for my music: I don't have time to make something super great, but something half-ass does nothing, either. I see. I didn't design it... It's a free site.
