T3F, sorry to hear about your rig, especially that way cool homemade acoustic/electric. It's the ones we build that we miss the most. There's a piece of you in that bass, and it's off who knows where.

Anyway, Karma usually has a way of straightening things out.

2006-02-04T05:11:06+00:00 <![CDATA[RE: Tim3finger's bass]]> It's working :D Tom can really rail some blues on his Tele (gosh I hope to get a more recent pic soon...he played keyboards for the Christmas show...). I wish we had some of our jam tangents recorded...when Tom cracks...and goes blue,'s like he's in a trance and I don't know how his strings hold together. Tim knows what I'm talking about. Tim and I are getting better and love to try and drag a slow country song into a swing or shuffle...and get Tom going. We recently added very bluesy songs called "Baby" and "Always Late" and just today started working over a killer bluesy version of "Walkin after Midnight". We also got "Stormy Monday" and "Blues Stay away from me" ready for when the time is right. At a recent practice we were doing the worship song "Just a closer Walk with Thee" and I caught a little shuffle from Tim, and answered, Tom got suckered and we got him locked into one of them aint never heard it like that in any church :D

How inspiring! THAT is what I'm looking for. I have had moments of it and I guess that's why I don't want to settle. I have been into the blues and rock n roll and R&B for so long that I will probably try to stay there. Plus I write and want to take that further with a group I can work together with. We had a country band and it was good for awhile but 3 of us were not really into it so we all seemed to get worse as time went on. Blind Tater who was on this site remembers another band that had that going on and then things fell apart. And so on.

Please don't stop philosophizing I sure do like to think and can always use inspiration. How cool to be able to practice at work. Hey Tom, add some blues. Keep on keepin on.

I should clarify that we are not a blues band. We play old classic country/gospel and some bluegrassy stuff. The reason Tim and I are on BRB, is because 12 bar blues are where we both started, where our hearts are...and where we usually end up at every laid back jam session. Tom is warming up to adding some blues to our sets...

2006-02-01T20:52:57+00:00 <![CDATA[RE: Tim3finger's bass]]> Lorilu , to address your remark about "finding what we have", I wish you success. Not luck, because luck implies you had no influence on the results. Instead sucess, which relies on your efforts and desire level. Getting to jam with my friends, especially these friends, is more of a zen thing than anything else. Tom, our lead guitar player and vocalist is into a wide variety of music, Dean likes anything he can play, and me, I like music period! The best thing about the whole deal is we all work together at the same job, so we get to practice about an hour everyday at work. Oh, and did I mention that we have no egos individually about our abilities and we can read each other's mind during songs( knowing breaks, repeats, tempo, etc.) without having to think about it. Yes, truely we are blessed. That's the kind of success I wish you all.

Okay, that is enough philosophical stuff. My future posts will be a little more laid back. Ask Dean, I really am low key and laid back.

2006-01-31T18:34:59+00:00 <![CDATA[RE: Tim3finger's bass]]> I felt really bad at first when I made my discovery that it and some other stuff was gone. Kind of violated, if you know what I mean. Then I got to thinking, it is just stuff, and it wasn't what really made me happy, it was the music and friends I could jam with that was the pleasure. So, we can all get more stuff and it will pass on in one way or another, but the real joys we have here on this earth are forever and beyond theives, time, or decay.

P.S. Look for Dean and me to do some original nasty blues with some Bass and slide Electric Banjo in the mix some time in the near future.
