Not a lot of chatter here so far for the next Fest. Anyone besides me looking forward to it?

Yup!   Will be there with the same setup as in the fall, including the monitors. Looking forward it because that would mean that it's "officially" spring. The way things have gone this spring it's a good thing that the 'fest is later, now we just need the snow to STOP and the sun to come out!  8)

I'll be there, in all likelihood. Will bring the Big Red Farfisa™, plus my usual accoutrement of claviers de fromage, errm, cheesy keyboards. I'll also be willing to wander up to the mic, if you can stand it. See yas there!

Fantastic Rick!
Adam Caldow and Bill McGrath will be psyched I'm sure.
I plan on being there. Might bring some new toys to play with.

Is anyone bringing any actual talent to the fest?
Ben, Do you think you could give me a little more "talent" in my monitor mix?

As long as we're more careful than this guy, I think we'll be fine:

I asked about the "Talent Option" when I bought the new mixer, unfortunately the only ones they have available were made in China and did not integrate well. Since support was outsourced to India, I was concerned about being able to troubleshoot problems in a noisy environment.

Well then..
There's gotta be a mic out there that can make me sound like a gerbil's being boiled in honey BBQ sauce.
Right now I'm looking for the Whole-ee Grail guitar pick to make me play like I got 20 fingers on each hand.
So far I'm all thumbs. Sure it's a plus for hitch-hiking, not so much for playing.

Can anyone yodel "Flight of the bumble bee" in a reggae 5/17 time? Tuned down to G# Maj-9 b5 of course...
By the way Cowbell is so yesterday. Triangle is so "the Shit" now with the Webertude world wide superhighway internet savvy millennial generation. Can't wait to hear that solo.

Wha Hey!!

I think that the Flailing Musical Arm-Pit Choir has some fine talent.
Their song Schwinging In The Drain in Cb - In 7-1/2 / Eleventeen mind you, gets any crowd rowing.

So for the past three weeks, work has totally sucked out all of my intended practice time. >:(

I still want to get something out of what I previously got to work on though.

  • Adam V. - You're going to get David Bowie - Suffragette City whether you like it or not. I'll be playing guitar. Start boning up on the lyrics. I'll provide some accurate ones that day (verbatim)
  • Rick - I still need work on bass, but if still interested: Blink 182 - All the Small Things
  • Brian - I'll look around to see if I have any talent left - There's a small chance that I might have something squirreled away for a rainy day.  ;)

The rest is what it will be.

Awesome! Why not some other Bowie tunes as well, as a tribute? Ziggy Stardust, The Man Who Sold The World, Diamond Dogs, whatever. I'll have to see if I can source an orange wig on short notice, of course..........  ;D

I'm just a bass player that dabbles in guitar.
