Do you have a manager/management,and if so;who?
In regard to your career as a chimney sweep:
Tell the truth - Mary Poppins was a cougar in the sack, wasn't she? She had to be. All prim and buttoned up with those rosy cheeks. I'll bet once you got her hair down and those boots off of her she turned into a ravenous slutbeast. So... details? Into the dirty stuff, right? Do tell.
Second, in regard your secondary career as a guitar person:
Two cyclists start biking from a trail’s start 3 hours apart. The second cyclist travels at 10 miles per hour and starts 3 hours after the first cyclist who is traveling at 6 miles per hour. How much time will pass before the second cyclist catches up with the first from the time the second cyclist started biking?
you forgot to tell them about our pet Kangaroos, Koalas and Wombats.
Ps;Was Grant Walsh doing "front of house" when you worked with 'Farnham"?
There is nothing about the 9 to 5 existence which appeals to me. I've seen enough people around me pass from this plane of existence to know that the notion of security is an illusion that can be shattered in an instant. I am learning that the truly important things in life, like peace and love, are not to be found in the outer world, but exist within and always have. As a result, I am no longer looking for them in the world around me, where they are not to be found with any form of permanence. I believe in finding a way to do what you love and love what you do, whilst still providing a service. Then it becomes a service fueled by love, which I believe carries more substance than a service fueled by a sense of duty, especially if it involves or generates some form of resentment. It doesn't matter what form the service takes, guitarist, plumber, window cleaner, it's all the same. The only important element is the intent behind the service. For me, that means being a musician, for now. It means that I have to be prepared to take on all manner of work as a musician, and that I will not always have the luxury of choosing what it is that I will be playing, but that fits in perfectly with my larger quest of gradually dissolving the ego, which is a whole other story in itself, but intimately tied in with these notions.
Now I'm off to rest under the Bodhi tree and contemplate my navel.
Did you try some extendet Range instruments like 7/8 or more string guitars/basses?
Can you imagine to use totally different guitar types than your beloved Strat?
Wow...! Thanks a lot for giving me/us a great read as answer to my questions - that was most interesting! I am glad you let the personal taste shine through on the first question because I have never heard of Kossoff (I don't know if I should be saying this out loud..?)... I liked that you also could elaborate that thoroughly as to why you would recommend that music.. I will have to check out some of his works.. Thanks.
Reveal it all! Educate them!Should we tell them about the Dropbears as well? And all our other cuddly wildlife?
"Lord Tosh" well i never! "Tosh" or "Walshy" to me;but i suppose that depends on how far back one goes.
I've tried a few other types of guitars. As I mentioned earlier, I had an '89 PRS Custom, and I tried really hard to like it, but it was just too wishy washy and indistinct. It was trying to be "every guitar" and only approximating any of them. I've got a Squire Tele that I really like, and I would love to have a real one, I think they're beautiful guitars. I love the sound of Les Pauls, but I don't enjoy playing them. I liken them to driving an automatic car. They almost seem to play themselves, and I guess I've gotten used to really having to wrestle with a Strat for a more intense result. But I love what other players do with Les Pauls, and the sound of a good one is such a classic rock thing. When they've got their action too low, they sound like toys, but that's the same for most guitars. One guitar I would love to have is a 335, it may seem odd but I think of them as a Strat player's Gibson. But my old Strat has been a loyal friend, it has been with me for my entire professional career, and we have an understanding.
