Dirtineye seemed to do OK.



Thanks for that remembrance...

Dirt was world class. I kept in touch with his mother and best friend after his sad finish

Fortunate to acquire some of his recordings and performances

I never got to meet the man but I enjoyed his spirit. And he was an amazingly gifted musician. I think about him from time to time and would love to hear some of his recordings...

Hey Ron, what are all those blue ribbons for?

Thanks for sharing the vid, made me feel more comfortable to share mine. This was a fun night for me:


My part kicks in more at 1:16 or 1:24. At one point I biffed it a bit with the harmonies clashing in the extended echo effects. Eh, what can you do. I would strive for perfection, but I avoid the temptation for that by not practicing! It's my ever-present excuse just like trotting out an old injury or talking about too much cubicle time at the start of a climb. Always keep an excuse handy :)

Edit: As I re-read what I just wrote, I thought about Jonathan Livingston Seagull, and how making excuses and not practicing are not what I aspire to. Different times I focus on different areas of my life, but at no point do I accept mediocrity just as a matter of course because of laziness or fear of judgment. Wow, I need to get out climbing. But first, I'm going to take a break from the taco brain-freeze and go play some guitar.

OK, if you all have the guts to post something, here goes. Maybe it will draw John E. out.

For me the biggest issue is fingernails... I use the nails on the thumb and first three fingers of the right hand for picking...and I have to clip them fairly short when I go climbing just so they won't rip off. Frustrating at times.

Thanks amigo - RC-50 but the 300 looks pretty sweet. Dig the expression pedal. Boss makes a pretty nice product, I was stoked on the loop station as soon as I had it hooked up.

man o man, just blew the work productivity for the afternoon :)

I relaxed to some Chopin, got enamored with a new looper tool/toy I need to get, and rocked out to a cool and distinctive fingerpicking style. Then enjoyed some other cool guitar stuff in a totally different style. There's some non-climbing talent around this place. Thanks guys!

In a few months after I get stuff unpacked from boxes and easy access to recording, will have to revive this thread for some new creations and keep the little music support group alive.

Yeah, that loop thing is pretty cool. So, what are guys using to record? I'm sort of primitive with a Zoom H4 then using Audacity to trim the ends and normalize.

Garageband. Or Logic pro if I'm feeling, ya-know, pro.

Before I moved to LA, my band recording setup was Ubuntu Studio based linux apps. Some people get religious about Ground Up, I got religious about Open Source:

ffado drivers controlling an Mbox hardware A/D converter with mic and line inputs
linux real-time kernel tweak to get less choppy audio
Ardour as the main recording/mixing/effects plugins interface
JAMin for mastering the final mix
patchage for virtually wiring all the Jack apps together
Audacity for converting the .wav mixdown (Ardour output) to .mp3
(could use lame for command line, but Audacity is easy too)

All the "original" tracks on this link, except the last one, were done with linux software:
http://www.bandmix.com/6stringscott/


For my guitar effects, I've got mixed feelings about the Line6 POD-HD500. Very flexible and versatile, but terrible presets. Lots of work to tweak it the way you like, and then try to normalize the output levels for different patches is hard (e.g. for live shows to get similar volume levels on each patch). That messed me up a lot even during jam sessions, stopping to fiddle with levels and tone and getting in the way of just playing and having fun with the gang.

I really like my old Line6 AX2 2x12. Nice sounds, no fiddling necessary, but fiddling is available if you want it. And it's heavy to lug around.


Then there's the Taylor 12-string, the Takamine classical with built-in pickup, the import Fender Strat, and the old Yamaha steel string my dad picked up in the Philippines during Vietnam. And a beater classical I bought for $90 about 20 years ago, that I still take on camping trips.
