Cool.

I knew the Yardbirds did a version, then I started wondering how many bands had.

Wow!

Were opening up for this Jimi Hendrix type sounding guy called Dennis Jones on August first at the Cellar. You might like him he's sort of that guitar god type blues guy who just has a little 3 piece I think.

Sounds like the Broncos efense, only if they get better they may get a D at the beginning.

Anyway, good luck.

Yeah except we know we are average joes just having a good time and Broncos trying to win a Superbowl.

We are better then a lot fo weekend bands though.

Here is hoping the Broncos get that D in the defense or we will all have the blues and hope a train just rolls over us.

That's what it's all about. I've played since I was a kid and had the most fun once I developed that attitude.

He's also a DJ, just has one of the voices that can do a lot of different stuff. He's too busy with family and kids now, but out of all of us he is probably the only one who could have maybe had a career in music or acting.

Thanks for the compliment Bronconia. It would be great to see one of my Bronco brothers score with some nice 22 yr old at one of my gigs.

I always say hot chicks = stupid men and boys who will drink as long as they stay. I always go up to the hot young ones and buy them a round of drinks, tell them thanks for dancing. Really without women it's a Rush concert. I like Rush, but you just can't be a weekend bar band unless you can make the girls dance a little.

That's why we are a blues band, but all of our songs are upbeat. We don't play very much chugga chugga I'm super sad blues. It's more like the Ohhh Yeah let's have some fun blues which is really just as represented in the genre.

I think a lot of people think Blues and they think slow and boring.

I was always hoping LABF would put some clips of him playing. I heard from a couple of other maners he can really play the guitar well. Tried to get him to but he said I was a right wing racist and would probably just be mean lol!!

I thought I did hook you up with some clips?

Anyway, check your PM.

Nice playing on that tune, BTW - really good tone and phrasing.

Wow LABF you play really nice. Very easy to listen to and a bunch of different techniques keep it fresh. Thanks for the clips I really enjoyed listening to them.

Some of the other guys TDMVP and popps play as well right? Popps I know does. It would be cool to hear all of you. WHo knows maybe we can have an Orangemane jam session sometime.

Pretty sure we have a bunch of musicians on the site.

I played and sang in bands for years ... Dude, that's some beautiful sweet sax, nice harmonics, nice tremolo too. Those are challenging techniques I've been told.

Best Train Kept a Rollin' is on Aerosmith's live album from 1978 ... Joe Perry just tortures his Strat, it's a sick, wailing, wicked version.

I just started recording myself so I could listen. I think my vibrato a little to shallow and quick. I want it to be a tad more deep and a little slower but I am working on it. My teacher also always harping on me for that.

Harmonic, or what we horn players call altissimo is something that takes a long time to do I have been working on that since high school. I do have a really expensive mouthpiece though that helps, and a really nice custom Phil Barone copper neck. The high baffle metal mouthpiece give me the edge and the ability to get really high into the altissimo, but then the Copper neck warms and centers the sound back a little so I don't sound to thin. It is a modern sound though that is for sure so its a little edgy sometimes.


We are thinking about doing Aerosmiths Big 10 Inch version. I think drunk people would like it.

Also on the high notes my highest in that solo was 4th octave C for me. Pretty high for the avg Joe. To put it in perspective Lenny Pickett, the god of Altissimo, routinely plays licks up to the 5th octave of G and even higher.

Dam, only If I could blow harp' good enough to jam with a band.

If I learned 12 bar blues and had the right key harps it would work.

I one word for........Lessons. You will come further in a few months with a good teacher then a yr by yourself.

Figure a way to find someone not so good you cant afford him. Just someone who does it on the side for no more then 25 bucks a lesson.

Start with one lesson every month and see if you get into it. IE practice what teacher said to and then show him what you learned. If your doing that go every 2 weeks. If you get really into it every week.

If you have even any talent it will come out faster then you think.

Now I wont like I have been playing since I was 13 yrs old and I am almost 40. But really its about what you play sounding good, as opposed to being able to shred to any certain level.

Playing in a band is about saying what can I do to make other guys sound better. That means not playing over there parts and understanding when your part is important (the tag or lead melody) or the backing and texture of a passage. Then when it comes to soling make sure you know what scale to use for the song and play licks that sound good. If you can't play 16th notes at the tempo then dont play them. Make simple licks and play them well, play when you are supposed to, most important play in tune, and if you tried I bet you could blow some hard with a blues band in a yr.

You would just have to find guys not a ton better then you, but maybe just a little better.

You will find many groups have a bunch of great players but they play so often they have no time to rehearse. More avg players just have to practice the tunes more but often play the same song.

Ever hear the alto sax on "Shaker Song" from Manhattan Transfer's Extensions album? Freaking wailer.....!!!!

So that's a high C you belted out there? I thought that was a harmonic note ... I guess harmonic blasts go a lot higher, eh? Sometimes they sound like the reed is gonna split. I'm not a Foreigner fan, but "Urgent" has one of those I think.

I love me some baritone sax too .... you don't hear them a lot, but that can really hammer home some R&B ... for example, "When Something is Wrong" by Neville and Ronstadt. Great stuff
