  1. I rarely post on here anymore but I do lurk from time to time. Anyway, looking over from the Canadian side of the border, I'm extremely worried by what I'm seeing on CNN. I love you all, please stay safe everybody. I hope this ends peacefully but I fear the worst.
  2. Not sure if we have any fans of The White Stripes in here or not, but here is our live off the floor cover of The Big Three Killed My Baby from band practice last week.
  3. The king of the diabeetus has passed away! https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/02/entertainment/wilford-brimley-actor-dies/index.html
  4. Yeah, I agree. I wish I had a POG. I'm able to somewhat simulate the sound of a POG with my TC Electronics Sub N Up pedal. I can pitch shift to 3 different octaves simultaneously, so it sounds close to a POG but not exact.
  5. It there visibly a flat spot on the fret? Maybe it can just be crowned. Or perhaps the neck is just too straight. If you don't get dead spots higher on the neck you might just need a tiny bit of extra relief (very slight truss rod adjustment). maybe. Hard to say but definitely a fixable problem.
  6. Appreciate it. It's a 2017 Les Paul Standard in Blueberry Burst finish. At the time I found the color really striking and had to grab it. I don't know if they still produce that paint scheme.
  7. Well since we are a two piece with a female drummer, of course we play lots of White Stripes tunes. Not sure if you all are into The White Stripes, but here you go:
  8. Sounds awesome, man! Great job!
  9. I had no idea who Black Box Revalation was so I just looked them up on YouTube just now and wow those guys are great, totally the sound we are trying to go for. Appreciate the feedback and happy to have discovered a new band! We are strongly influenced by the Detroit garage rock scene, from The Stooges to The MC5 to The White Stripes.
  10. Yup it's a two piece. I'm on guitar and vocals. I've got a female drummer named Renee. Totally a White Stripes kind of band arrangement. I overlaid a bass track and additional guitar, but when we play live it's just the two of us, so I have to come up with some creative arrangements to fill up the sound spectrum. Thanks for listening!
  11. Hey guys, this is the new musical project that I've been involved with. Sort of a garage rock kind of deal. Hope you guys dig it.
  12. It's been a while. I can't believe how many of us have been on this forum for 15+ years. I still check in every couple years when I have time. I do miss this place. I noticed that there seems to just be a general 'Offseason' and 'Regular Season' thread where most activity is. Is this a recent development? "Back in my day" there were 20+ threads with so many replies that I couldn't possibly keep up with it all. I loved your old Game Threads you used to start, Bert!
  13. Sorry if I'm 'late to the party' on this, but I noticed that 97.1 is airing classic tiger games according to their website. Does anybody happen to know off hand which games they are? Are these old Ernie/Paul era games? Or are they not-so-old Dan/Jim games? If there's one positive thing about the pandemic, it's that there are a lot of classic sports on TV. In Canada, there is lots of hockey from the 80s and 90s on. I've seen classic Nascar from the 1980s. And it's funny, even though I know the outcome of most of the games shown, I still find it more exciting than most current era sports. Maybe it's just nostalgia, or maybe there's something more to it.
  14. Thats a really good idea. Something where a bunch of us collaborate parts of a recording and upload our parts somewhere? I haven't been a regular poster on here in many years unfortunately so I'm not sure if I'd be considered a part of the band but either way there's enough of of us here that we could collaborate online as long as everyone has a decent recording rig.
  15. I think it's because it's all relative to context of the key you are playing in. Take for example, the C major scale. C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C. If you wanted to convert that to the natural minor, you flatten the 3rd, 6th and 7th degrees of the scale. It becomes C-D-Eb-F-G-Ab-Bb-C. So, take for example the third degree of the scale, the E gets flattened and becomes an Eb. The Eb replaces the E in the scale. It's not replacing D, therefore we are not sharpening the D, we are flattening the E. At least that's how I've always thought of it. sharps and flats are relative to the notes they are replacing.
