  2. I play geezer rock once a week with four other great guys. We have a blast. We don't take ourselves too seriously and we do it for the camraderie as much as anything else. That said, we like to sound as good as we can. Occasionally, we have to skip a week due to scheduling issues as we all have full time jobs and lives outside of our music effort. Strangely, we seem to sound quite tight - better - upon return. It's like the brief break does us some good. Does this happen to anyone else?
  3. Apologies. I sould have posted this in the Gibson Lounge.

  5. "You live in a world of illusion Where everything's peaches and cream We all face a scarlet conclusion But we spend our time in a dream" from the song Jungle Love -written by Lonnie Turner & Greg Douglass - performed by the Steve Miller Band
  6. Update on progress: We built a 6" drum riser with foam padding beneath. A curved plexiglass shield now surrounds the drum kit (half circle, as it backs up to a wall). That rear wall has the cheaper convoluted foam on it (matress topper material). There are Auralex 12"x12" panels inside the plexiglass - 10 of them. We have 14 more available for future placement. There is now Auralex foam on the ceiling above the kit . We placed the two floor monitors on 1" insulated risers. I think we are running out of surfaces to cover. The sound improvement is nothing less that stunning. I used to HATE the booming bass and shrieking cymbals. It was not my bandmates fault, though. The reflective surfaces of the room were to blame. Now each instrument is tight. Instead of hearing it from all around me, each instruments' sound is coming from a single place. Now the vocals are audible in the prominent way as they are meant to be heard. This allows the singers to hear better & correct on the fly. Auralex+adhesives = $1250. Lumber scrounged by us, plexiglass donated by bass player who owns a glass shop. This has been very rewarding. Very worthwhile.
  7. My bandmenbers and I placed acoustic sound absorbing panels on the walls of our band room. We suffered from standing waves and feedback, echos and noise bouncing around the place. We bought 12 2'x4' , 12 2'x2' panels plus four 2' tall bass traps.This cost right at $1000. After putting it up the improvement of our sound was shockingly better. We have drums, bass, 2 electric guitars and an acoustic guitar, plus three vocal mikes. I could not believe how effective these panels truly are. We will now build a drumkit isolation booth of some type. We should have done this years ago.
  8. Today I took a buddy fishing on my boat in the Beaufort River, Beaufort, SC, USA. He and I each caught a nice redfish apiece. We returned both to the water. The company/conversation was great. I am blessed.
  9. My buddy has a Ibanez TSA5TVR 1x8 5w and it sounds great!
  10. A bandmate/friend of mine was the luck recipient last Sunday of a new Fender Player Stratocaster HSS in 3 color sunburst. It was a fine, spontaneous gift from a close friend of his for no apparent reason. It plays well, sounds great and looks good. I got to play it a short time on Monday. I wish I had a benefactor such as his. But I rather be gifted a Gibson.
  11. Good Concert(s) story: I became a Nickel Creek fan in the early 2000's. I saw them live at the Johnny MercerTheater in Savannah, GA around 2003. I was transfixed. It was stunningly great. I got it in my head that they used "tricks" to sound that good. No way could they sound that good live. I suspected backing tracks, pitch correction or looping. I went back for another concert a year later. I got great seats; center close. I payed close attention. I was dead wrong. They were glorious both times. There is nothing but talent, skill and hard work going on there. I feel guilty for being a doubting Thomas.
  12. I saw James Taylor at Carowinds, just South of Charlotte, NC, around 1981. First half of the concert was his acoustic stuff. I really enjoyed that half. Second half was the electric (LOUD) stuff. I walked out after the first electric song ended & did not return.
  13. they could just invert a few 9's until they find the missing 6's
  14. I have had this rather faithful guitar tab of Tommy for years. Pretty much the whole album tabbed out. I have learnedand forgotten large swaths of it over the years, Some parts have stuck with me. I hope someone else can enjoy this, too. https://www.thewho.net/whotabs/tablature/tommy.txt
