Imagine the band we could have. A bunch of guys with black stained hands and dirty nails in steel toed boots with the toes wore off and flannel shirts and dirty jeans. Gosh we would have to beat the women off with sticks :lol:

We'd play everything probably.

Yeah I went to this jazz clinic today at another school and had previously gone to an honors choir(uckkk!). I walk in with a camo hat, steel toed boots, jeans, and some thick t-shirt or farm shirt. Everyone else is kind of dressed up and look at me like I'm a freak or a little weird. Although at the Jazz clinic, the other schools drummer was wearing boots and a John Wayne and American flag t-shirt so it wasn't too bad.

We kind of stick out like a sore thumb in a crowd like that. Especially when you arms have a lot of small round marks from burns and people look at you weird for that.

Edit: maybe we should get a thing going for fabtech. That will give us some strange looks. :lol:

I played alto Sax in high school, and discovered I'm a good "technical" player. I can make each note at the time I'm supposed to, but there's no music in me.

So, I'm a listener. I listen to damn near everything. The list of music genres I don't like is short. I can't stand corporation radio (the same six songs hour after hour), so I listen to the public station and my XM/Sirius, and explore on youtube.

So like most- you play the radio. I find it to be the most simple to learn but once you get into the guts-it gets wild at times.

...and that's why I like Sirius/XM and the public radio. Unlike the classic rock station, or the hick-hop station, I will hear at least two songs I've never heard before every damn day.

I don't understand guys who listen to the classic rock station every day. It's the same handful of songs I've already heard 50K times, over and over. Then, it's interlaced with ads for weight loss and pecker pills.

Been playing guitar for 25 years. Electric mostly, but I do have a nice Spanish classical guitar from the Manuel Rodriguez family of luthiers. I also have two Dean 4-string basses, one fret-less. I mostly try to learn stuff by Yngwie Malmsteen.

Malmsteen exercises will give you carpal tunnel...

Kenny Wayne Sheppard is another I like, though quite different in style.

How about Joe Bonamassa?

We have a couple classic rock stations in Chicago. One is what you describe and the other has a pretty diverse playlist and I regularly hear songs that no one else plays...but they have their usual drones that you hear 5 times a day. Never hear any pecker pill commercials though :lol:
