Thanks L07. I pop over from time to time. I haven't been messing around with music much these days. Being an old man with a five year old keeps me hopping to and fro.

Georgia to Maine. Appalachian Trail.  Your moniker stuck with me once long ago when we were talking about where our user names came from.  A FIVE year old?  That's some busy days you've got going on.  But don't forget to teach him (her?) music.  That can be your excuse..."gotta surround the kid with music."

Ryler, yes indeed the moniker stands for Georgia to Maine. In 2003, a few days into my thru-hike, I met my wife at the Georgia/North Carolina border on the Appalachian Trail. We started hiking together there and onward to Maine and never stopped hanging out together. That is one thing I'll really miss out on doing with my son, since I can no longer backpack. I incurred a spinal cord injury in 2005 that put an end to that type of activity. My wife will have to teach the boy to be successful in the back country.

Busy days don't quite adequately describe how I feel being a 49 year old wobbly walking man, trying to keep up with the hyper energy of a five year old boy. I wouldn't change the exhaustion for anything else though. I feel blessed being able to be at home raising, educating, and enjoying time with my boy.

That's a beautiful way to meet!  Sorry to hear about the spinal injury.  I too have lost lots of my favorite ways to spend time due to injury/aging.  (I took this entire summer off of guitar playing to let tennis elbow heal.  Dr. appt. pending.) 

There's no love like the love of a parent for a child.  I'm glad you have that in your life, Jonathan.

Did 5 songs at a local open mic this arvo. Couldn't hear my guitar and my singing sounded like $##t......
I've just started singing lessons but I've been fighting a flu thingy for about the last month. May have something to do with it...

Still a bit bummed I didn't sing better.   crying

Ok, whinge over.

Cheers, Scott.

Just do Dylan or Neil Young songs and no one will notice your voice😎

 Just watched Austin city Limits Hall of Fame. The one where Guy Clark and Townes Van Zant are inducted into the ACL Hall of fame.
 Dwight Yoakom hosted and it really was a gas. Lots of good players, singers and at the end all of them were on stage singing a Townes Van Zant tune. Very well done, from the song Lyle Lovett did at the start, (Guy Clark's first ever song) which was beautifull. Right to the end.
   I was about to turn ìn when it started, but Dwight introduced Lyle to sing a Guy Clark tune, and that caught my attention. So I ended up watching the whole show.
    It's a keeper.

 mad Thats it abuse me with another guitar I can't afford!!!!!!!!!!

By the way there are many time's that I'm here but for guest,70 0f them once.




So can I -CENSORED- about bass players....WTF is it with built in pre amps....never fit in the cavity right.they have millions of tiny ittsy bitsy wire thatgo in a million directions.Then you get installed and the -CENSORED- because they can't get the tone they want.You try to get them to understand that when your bass has a pre amp and your amp has a pre amp that your pre amping a pre amp.Then you have all these useless controls on you bass and on your amp,ON TOP of that your running 4x10 cab thats design to throw the signal 15 to 25 feet and your running 1500 watts but you can't hear yourself so you turn up,leaving the sound guy going nuts and the band.PLUS theres a thing call freq,cancalation so the other guys can't hear them selve's so they turn causing the sound man to push the board over and charge the stage swinging a mic stand.OR...

Your playing an acoustic but the bass player sitting in who doesn't really know the material but he got you the gig and he's playing louder then then need be............


I feel better now time for a scotch but I'm out so

Being a bassist in a few bands over the years, I feel your pain, Rob.  Keep it simple, stupid.  The vast majority of bassists choose the classic, straightforward (analog?) PB's or Jazz basses plugged into a classic bass rig  for a good reason.  Use the amp. for stage volume, line in it's output to the PA amp, let the sound man put it in the mix out front as he/she sees fit, and Bob's your uncle.

I suppose the electronic basses with their pre-amps and such have their place if you are a super-group playing in a stadium or need a certain sound for a certain song or a recording or something?
