No problem mate. I don't think you are doing it intentionally - but in order to keep these threads we just need to be a little extra cautious.

Arts and food. Come on.


Yeah it's laughable, who needs arts and music?! laugh.gif laugh.gif

Also, I would like to add Environmental Protection to the list - who the hell needs that?? If we skip that, the planet will soon boil and we can all have free tea, I don't see any problems with that.

This will also solve food problems: anyone knows old people can survive weeks on just water while they wait for private donors - and there will soon be plenty of (sea) water for everyone to enjoy thanks to arctic ice melting.

So AK, you are saying this about meals on wheels:

QUOTE (AK Rich @ Mar 21 2017, 05:04 PM) *
More exaggerated drama. That vast majority of funding for the program comes from private donors. I make donations to them myself a few times a year. They receive only a fraction of what they take in from federal dollars. Any void left by removing taxpayer funding will be quickly filled by donations as evidenced by the recent surge of donations to the program since the announcement of the budget proposal. Americans are the most generous in the world when it comes to charity and this program isn't going anywhere because of that.

If the program can stand on it's own without taxpayer funding, then why shouldn't it? We don't need to be forced to fund it and forcing taxpayers to pay for charities that Gov chooses may likely be doing more harm than good when it comes to other charities that are not federally funded. We are perfectly capable of determining which charities we want to donate to and Gov has no business telling us which charities we must donate to.
Charitable donations are tax deductible which helps to create an incentive for folks to donate. Forcing people to donate thru taxation creates the idea of charities not needing donations because the Gov is supposed to have it covered and folks then have less money to donate to the charities of their choice.
Lower taxes = more charitable donations.


Then it seems you are sitting on info not widely available - because from what I gather the funding for this program is complex as it's a network of thousands of independently run groups that receive varying amounts of government aid – or none at all.

However we do know the biggest source of federal funding for Meals on Wheels programs comes from the Older Americans Act Nutrition Program, which is run by the Department Of Health and Human Services.

Trump has proposed slashing the Health and Human Services budget by nearly 18 percent, though the exact details of those cuts have not been released.

So it does seem this could have a big impact on old people's ability to survive (as you know food is mandatory). Feel free to clarify your standpoint.

Darius and Gab are spot on.

We want to hear you "mean it" a bit more. You have already been given the specifics about the pick strumming which is def an important part of the solution.

On top of this, I think it would help if we saw you "rock out" a bit more. Maybe pretend you are playing this on stage - try to dig into the rhythm. This usually makes you attack the strings in a different way which translates into "more feeling".

I did want to point out that the first draft of the new budget proposal seeks to pull money from after school programs, and meals on wheels and other programs that help feed the elderly and poor. The very folks (the left behind) that Trump swore to protect, are the very folks that will suffer when the budget is slashed in order to give billions more to the military to buy more Nuclear subs to Fight Muslims in the desert. Yup. Isis and Al Qaeda dont' have an air force, nor a Navy, yet we are going to take food from the poor to buy more subs and pricey air craft. Seems just insane.


Yes that budget proposal is nothing short of horrific from start to finish sad.gif If such a proposal was brought up here, I think/hope it would instantly cause massive and nation wide protests.

The wiki is not featured anymore because it is no longer frequently updated - with only a few exceptions. The sections that are updated, are linked to from relevant places (for example the REC board links to the REC score board in the wiki).

If you would like to see the wiki in the spotlight again - get in contact with Fran and he will let you know how you can contribute!

It would be amazing to see more wiki contributions. cool.gif

I believe many of those things about putin , he is KGB thru and thru, and I believe he would love to see a return to that ( and trust me , to many of my" Kin" would be flat out waring with Trump if we thought he would throw out our Republic) . I am trying to find some common ground . you do know that article came from Fox news ( or as some say " faux news " ), But it seemed to be close to were you are . From were I stand it looks like you might have a tainted view of fox. I am not saying you agree with anymore , this might be the only one , but maybe , just maybe , you could give credit to an article rather than the name someone else might be slandering


Recently I have started watching all the major US news channels, including Fox. One of the major advantages with having free press is that you can (and should) do a reality check "on the other side".

I can't say Fox is a favorite of mine though. They seem to devote quite some time to critiquing coverage of their competitors. I also find their analyses to be slightly less objective and more focused on personalities.

thenwhat do you think of this opinion piece http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2016/10/08/...-ignorance.html


I skimmed through it briefly -

I am by no means a Russia expert and I am not sure my opinion on the details is worth anything. But if it turns out the Russian influence is as bad we're currently led to believe by the WH silence - you can be 100% sure it is not something that will benefit you and me.

If you guys want to get more understanding for this, I suggest researching briefly on the history of Russia/USSR and more importantly Putin.

If one of the most powerful autocracies (Russia) managed to push its agenda onto the most powerful democracy (US) - it would undoubtedly mean a new world order.

The first rhythm part was very enjoyable and spot on.

We can notice the solo section is more challenging for you, and at 00:32 we can here the first hesitation. This happens right before the solo starts, and is probably caused by you thinking something in the lines of "I have to concentrate now - solo section coming!"

I can't really spot any technical problems though, so I think you just have to spend some more time with the licks so you can play them with as much conviction as the rhythm part.

You get a 7 from me, keep it up!

Cool! I notice you pretty much start all licks in a groovy way and in time, but in many of the longer lick it feels like you loose timing and conviction (00:07, 00:33). Perhaps you start thinking about the next lick too early?

I notice the same thing in my playing when I "think" too much about what to play next. That's why the best playing comes not from thinking but just playing without thinking (aka feeling) - this is obviousy hard since you have to know the material really well.

We're speaking tiny details here that will take your playing from really good to pro. Keep at it! You get an 8 from me.

The speed runs are the where the obvious mistakes can be found.

But more importantly, your take is not as tight and swingy as Muris', for example the ending of the phrase at 00:10. But this can heard throughout.

To me it seems this is strictly a matter of practicing time, I think you could easily groove like that - if you didn't have to concentrate so much on getting the licks down.

Since this take is musical/enjoyable take anyway, it gets a good grade from me (7)

I certainly don't think you are dumb! sad.gif

There are many things Trump could do that instantly would give him credibility as far as Russia goes:

* Show all of his tax returns just like all other US presidents have

* Ask his people to stop denying Russia contacts and instead be transparent about why and how they met

* Stop calling Putin a nice guy and instead - just like the rest of the free world - denounce his assassination of political opponents, virtual dictatorship, Ukraine takeover, total media control, meddling in foreign elections, military/hacking ramp up etc etc

So, because he didn't actually answer the question of what he would do if there were evidence of folks within the campaign speaking to the Russians about the campaign, that is a lie under oath? Try again.


No, he lied because he said he didn't meet Russians when he did. Saying that he didn't meet them as a surrogate, but still met them in some other capacity, is not only a weak excuse but risky business under oath. It would take a very inexperienced person not to realise the major risk of this backfiring - which is yet a reason to believe he might be hiding something.

It would have been easy for him to just add "I met Russians but not as a surrogate". But that would obviously have triggered more questions, which I guess he wanted to avoid.

QUOTE (jstcrsn @ Mar 17 2017, 07:53 PM) *
I say you wrong , you say Im wrong . if your in the mood to be sensible ?
what would need to happen to make you believe you might have been misinformed and what would trump need to do to prove he was putin's beotch ( I know you think that , but ,What would prove it )


I don't claim to be 'right' - I just use my common sense to make you understand it lies in your interest to get to the bottom of this. Given how extreme the speculations have become - it is strange Trump does not lay the cards on the table. This inevitably leads to further speculations.

QUOTE (Rammikin @ Mar 16 2017, 02:09 PM) *
The Kemper has cabinet emulation and you'll be recording it direct, so you don't want a traditional guitar cabinet since that would defeat the purpose of the Kemper. Instead, you want something with a flat response. It's possible to get a guitar cabinet with flat response that is specifically designed for use with a modeler, but those are intended for use on stage. Since you're only using the Kemper at home, you'd be better off with powered studio monitors and the version of the Kemper without the power amp.


That's what I was trying to explain smile.gif thanks

QUOTE (Tom51 @ Mar 16 2017, 12:25 PM) *
Do you mean you do not record the Kemper via audio interface but instead have a setup with microphone at the nearfield monitor(or in the studio / room)?
Just curious as I want to know before buying a Kemper which setup woulld be best - Thank you.

Tom


I do record direct via audio interface, it's super easy and results are amazing!
