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.

I do like to push myself to get better but I know I will never be John Coltrane.

It does though have to sound good for me to have fun and I won't play with people who don't give 100%

What I can't stand is the hey its just for fun we can screw the songs up attitude. But also I don't like the get upset over every little mistake attitude.

It's more like everyone try there best, have a good time and try to stave off getting old and boring. You can't fight the old, but you can fight the boring.

There were like 5-6 really cute young girls there dancing and it made me feel so horny it was like being 20 again. MMMMMMMM little 22 yr olds all shaking there asses. Hard to feel bored looking at that........Easy to feel old though!!!!

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.

So far I'm the only maner to make to a show.

I assume I'm the closest besides John, plus other people have more time than me, I'm sure.

I have some other friends that want to check it out.

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!!

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.

No problem I dig areosmith. One of the rock bands I grew up with. Seen them several times, and had them cancel a couple shows I had tickets for so now I boycott them live !.

Still though I'd say a great version. There are a couple local classic rock bands that we have ran into that play Train Kept a Rollin but obviously the rock version. We like to play ours while they are packing there stuff away. Sort of how we have fun.

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.
