1st outing with my suitcase for a kick drum

Postby socket wrench » Wed Mar 21, 2012 6:23 pm

So here's a clip of me playing my suitcase as a kick-drum for the 21st time. Just had a contact mic taped to it and then fed into my amp. I think it works just fine :D

Awesome!
You must have been just beginin' your set.
Because I can see you transmutating into Son House,
if you get worked up enough.
I like the suit too, cool idea.

" I can see you transmutating into Sun House, "

Yes, I agree, and everyone likes to see daylight shining through the atrium of an architectural marvel.


Especially at a genetic level.

Or a religious one.

Maybe I don't really know what transmutating means.

Transmutating? Is that when an electric motor stops working or is it a part of one, the transmutator?

It's when you can tune your motor's spark advance, from what your leg feels like.
You can do that already, right?
