Dobro Magilicutty n I were just makin observations of how the biz we're infused with has takin all these twists n turns, and at the same time we'd "atta boy" each other for just respecting, paying homage, honoring, whatever they wana call it, but for knowing where ya came from; roots of the soul and body of the music we're structured with to begin with, and sticking to what in the end,, just- sounds- GOOD. In the rhythm of things here in the cave, Ive always run into a couple player/pickers at the music store , etc, and offer my card for some quick kift lessons on their 6 string or bass, theres one of my favorite rebellious know-it-alls to date, ya, go head and sayit! other than me,,, uhhh,uhhh,uhh, my young walkin 'house-beat" used to think that some raunchy lyrics, a few comp generated beats, and a laptop ,,,,was talent. lolol,,, you better believe i had a ball with this one... i knew that makin points like referring to the instruments hangin, lapsteel, my fender bass and strat, keys and pianos over there were all played by his boring-shmoe-Beatle-luvin flight instructor, and that they were REAL inst's that recorded REAL music, again, but one sunday, i'layed some simple tracs for "brown eyed girl", 3 chords, infectious simplicity,he listened, the beat and flair got him tappin right away,, then i told him to find us a chop guitar trac or something , on that magic laptop of his. 3 hours later , and whinin like ya never heard for the little fingers justa screamin out in pain!!!,, 2 weeks later he did a pretty nice job of his first rec'in AND realization that plain computers aint playin music! i slept good that night too!!....rocnrol!
