Don’t get old, kids. I hate it when I forget stuff, and the older I get the more I forget.
We were having a little Lizardfish group chat today. The usual, are we practicing this weekend and what new stuff should we learn, discussion. One of the guys put a bunch of youtube links into the thread. They were all songs he wants to talk us into learning.
I swear I was planning on doing exactly the same thing. There was a song that popped into my head the other day and I thought, we gotta play it! I didn’t have a chance to send out a link, but I was going to. Now that we’re all songs and links focused I can’t for the life of me remember what song I was thinking about. I’m so annoyed. I could blame it on poor sleep (see my previous post) but I don’t think that would be accurate. I just forget.
What the hell was it?
Slight tangent. Speaking of music, my gear acquisition syndrome is ramping up again. 50/90 is coming and my idiot brain is thinking of new toys that I could use during the process. I saw an attenuator on reverb.com that looked promising. Lots of good reviews and only $50. I want to get another microphone. A couple of years ago during RPM I was recording guitar parts in stereo (kind of, more like duel mono) by playing through two amps at once and recording onto two tracks. I was running direct out of both amps though so I didn’t need mics. This year i want to do the same only with speakers, and I only keep one mic at home. All of my other mics are in use at band practice. I am also thinking I might be in the market for a cheap acoustic guitar, preferably with some sort of pick up in it. Just something to beat on at home that I can run a line out of into my computer. I could record stereo (again, duel mono) by using a direct out and a mic. I want to play my 12-string more this year, but I also want to play some six string. We’ll see.
So many toys, so little time and money. Wheeee!
