    unless im learning a song i might not even pick up a guitar unless im on stage. i typically play two or three nights a week but i dont practice at all. i keep trying to convince myself to start a regular routine to get my chops back up but it never happens. when i was younger i would play eight hours a day till my fingers we so sore that i couldnt hold a pencil in school the next day without it hurting but even then i didnt practice all that much. dont know any scales, dont know the names of the notes on the neck without thinking about it. i just feel the notes

    Does Geddy Lee get a better bass tone from a Maytag Washer/Dryer Combo or a vertical chicken roaster onstage?

    this is at the fuller rd house grill i play there every sunday. i look silly but a) i dont care b) the guitar looks great



    this is at revolution hall, played there a bunch. great stage and room but its run by poorly trained monkeys. chick is my sister, she has a great voice so i drag her up every once in a while. she typically sings classical or folk or weird erie goth stuff so she only knows four or five tunes but a few times a year ill make her come out. check out how long the hair was, thats braided nice and tight so its probably about 12" longer at least. if it wasnt braided i would sit on it.



    empire state plaza. always fun to be on a big stage. more silly faces but you can see the '66 deluxe reverb sitting on the vibroking 2x12" cab

    1. What is the least amount of incentive you would require to drop trow and pinch of a loaf in plain view of a large group of strangers (like a mall food court, for example)?
    2. If you could transform to and from the form of one animal whenever you wanted, what animal would it be?
    3. What was the biggest mistake you ever made?
    4. If you awoke one morning on top of your sheets, drenched in sweat, with a strange sunburn and a sore anus, would you conclude you had been abducted in the night by aliens or would you force yourself to believe a more mundane explanation?
    5. What do you do if you find yourself on fire, and there's a lake about 50 ft. from where you're standing/burning?
    6. Which would you choose: Never again have a chubby or never again NOT have a chubby?
    7. If it somehow came to light that, due to some strange and improbable family secret you weren't privy to, your girlfriend was actually your first cousin, would you stay with her?
    8. If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life (like a cartoon character), pants?

    I like the pic above, messing with the passed out drunk. Describe some of your best pranks, stunts, or crazy activities you've lived through.

    Besides the Allmans, which world famous band would you like to join, giving the boot to the current guitarist? How would the groups sound change as a result?

    Hey Jeremy!

    It was great meeting you at User Group Day, and I still regret not getting up and jamming with you. I think that whole experience got me playing teles more, and I think it's made me a better player.

    a while back you said you were going to be working on some custom guitars with a friend. Are you doing that? are you working full time building, repairing guitars?

    I'm also curious about what you listen to.

    you've said you play by feel. I'd like to know if besides just playing a lot at one point, if you ever tried to go through any method books, like the Mickey Baker jazz books.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA

    Oh man, I can feel that pain!

    You ever catch (or even know) the band Super 400 that bangs around 'yer neck of the planet? They're pretty far from sucking...

    you just became my fave person on this forum, lol. so my questions will now revolve around single malt scotch.

    whats the best single malt you have ever tried?

    have you ever had lagavullan, talisker, or laphroaig 15? If yes, what did you think, and if not, then why the hell not?

    personally, the best i ever had was a 1973 maccallan. blew my friggin mind

    It probably wasn't a seizure. Jeremy, were you making "chowder" in that picture?

    i became an admin a few boards ago. rodney gene was the admin and he wanted to spend more time on his music. he called and asked me if id be willing to take over the reins. the forum was a much smaller and tighter knit community back then and i was glad to do it. over the years robert, scott and simon were asked to help out and now we all babysit you crazy cats. the seymour duncan company is a great group of individuals and it is nice to be associated with them even if it is way out on the perifory.

    assuming that ive been drinking cause i cant imagine doing that sober, it might not take much. if a mall employee pissed me off or was being unreasonable, that might do the trick. a gentlemans wager would work as well. i tend to be very principled when im drinking so any afront could cause some repercussions. of course id have to fire one out quickly, explaining my actions to a judge might be difficult.

    i was thinking something small like a spider so i could get in and out of places without being noticed but getting inadvertantly squished would suck. maybe a bird a prey

    starting drinking at a very young age, by 12 i was bringing booze to school. from about 18 to 23 i was a real hardcore drunk and drug user. id have a drink and stuff before i got out of bed every morning and to fall asleep at night i would need to eat a handful of pills. banged up my body pretty bad, kidneys shutting down and such in your early 20's is a little scary. i was sober for a while and now i drink again but not like i used to. during what i refer to as my dark years (both cause it was bad and cause i dont remember much) i really put a hurting on my body, especially my brain. the gray matter is kinda disconnected sometimes so i think i may have messed up the synapses. doesnt really effect daily life other than to be a little frustrating. the reason i say it was my biggest mistake is that it kinda put everything on hold for atleast five years. i was working but at a crappy go no where job that paid ok but wasnt helping me move forward in life, i was going to school but so sporadically that i would get an A in one class and get kicked out of another for lack of attendance. so now im 30 and a good six years or so behind where i would like to be. not much i can do about it and there is little reason to put effort into something that is beyond your control. life is a journey and im trying to enjoy every minute i can

    i would assume some unpleasntness occured that did not involve aliens. i would be willing to lie and say it was aliens for a substantial amount of money.

    is there anyone drinking crappy beer with me? if so i use that to douse the fire. if not i would drop and roll down to the lake trying not to spill my beverage in the process.

    i have a voracious appetite, a slight breeze in enough to cause arrousal. im pretty sure i could deal better if i was sporting wood all the time than if i couldnt even again

    nah, that'd be dirty. id explain the situation, tell her im very sorry but we have to stop dating and then have a little more sex.

    i think pants would be a necessity, it gets cold up here and if im going to be walking around with an erection all the time id hate to have it get frost bitten

    ive done plenty of dumb stuff. it is well known that you do not want to be the first one to pass out if im around. one of my favorites was a guy who hates spiders passed out, my friend was practicing to be a tattoo artist and had his gun handy so we tattooed a spider on the guys hand. we didnt think we'd actually get to do it cause the gun is loud and tattoos hurt but the guy was oooouuut. the next morning he freaked out cause he couldnt get the spider off. havent seen dennis in a looong time.

    the drawing is an old standbye and i try not to use easily washable markers

    string can be fun too. tie one end of the string around a finger then run it thru a chair then to another finger then zigzag thru some photos then around a foot then around a glass of grape juice then around another finger then around the half drank beer sitting in his lap and so on. when they wake up they are all tied up and try to move which causes all the crap to start falling which causes more flailing and more crap to fall and the beer to be poured in his lap etc...

    bad haircuts, shaved eye brows, squishy things in shoes, moving the whole room outside while someone is passed out on the couch. one time this guy woke up after we moved the whole room except the couch he was sleeping on and freaked out thinking some one had stolen all his stuff. we were planning on moving him but were winded so decided to take a smoke break (great logic huh?) and heard him wake up and freak out. he came running out the house half naked to find us all laughing our asses off

    as much as i love doyle bramhall, id boot his ass so i could play with clapton and trucks. doyle has a distinctive style but i think i fit that utility guitarist role pretty well.

    id love to join govt mule but not without warren still being there. i toyed with the idea of little feat as well, id love to bring some lowell george life back into the group and get them back to one of the best live rock and roll bands going like they used to be in the 70's
