08:32:08 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Ok, what is G.A.S. ?
08:32:13 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: Gear Acquisition syndrome
08:32:16 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: LOL
08:32:35 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Yes, I'm currentl;y having downtime from that before the bank account gets drained
08:32:44 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I put a down paymnent on a GNX4
08:33:09 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Nice!
08:33:23 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Looks sweet - all in one
08:33:29 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I figure if I am gonna get something like that I should jsut get something with some guts
08:33:30 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: REcording, drums effects
08:33:41 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Yep - a one stop shop
08:34:04 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I looked at a Zoom model that was nifty but it just didn't have enough flexibiolity for me
08:34:30 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: only had 2 "pedals" and a wah
08:34:33 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Well that looks good with the recording an all - recording is such fun, and it really helps your playing
08:34:46 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: yea you can listen to where you mess up
08:35:06 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: easier to hear your errors when ya aren't focused on making them
08:35:11 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Yes, plus to do something that sounds professional and bears listening to 100 times you REALLY need to play well
08:35:55 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: speaking of recording stuff... I am still workingon the chord progressions for that tune I got wandering around my mind
08:36:08 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I tried to tab it in GP5 but failed miserably lol
08:36:24 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: dammit
08:36:33 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: What was causing the problem?
08:36:34 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: got the notes right but the timing was all out of whack
08:36:41 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: ah yes, can be tricky
08:36:46 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I'm musically illiterate
08:36:55 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: LOL
08:37:02 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I can't tell the difference between a half note and a whole note
08:37:16 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Well, one is half a note, the other is a whole note ...
08:37:27 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I play entirely by ear
08:37:34 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Read my lesson series on timing if you haven't already
08:37:55 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: that's why effects are a must for me, if I can sound like what I can play I can learn it lol
08:38:00 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Yes, I play by ear as well, but I had theory pounded into me when I was a nipper
08:38:19 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: what I want to play*
08:38:33 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Yes
08:38:41 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Having a good ear is a blessing though
08:38:50 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: A lot of people don;t, and just play by the numbers
08:39:08 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: I'd rather have a good ear
08:39:23 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I use numbers as a guide but my emotion and experimentation is my key
08:39:30 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: exactly
08:39:42 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I have a couple short riffs I do that can bring tears to a glass eye
08:39:45 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: You can't capture emotion on paper it has to come rom you
08:39:51 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: lol
08:40:28 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: the chord progs for this tune are makin me crazy though
08:40:58 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I am trying to find a series easy enough that my son can play it as well
08:41:19 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: If you could just get me the tune I could help you
08:41:34 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Maybe you can record it on your GNX4 when you get it
08:41:55 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I'm going to plug in on sunday and make and mp3 of the thing
08:42:03 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: cool
08:43:16 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: it's mostly a finger picking pattern, very very rudimentary
08:43:33 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: SImple is good and can be very effective
08:43:51 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I want kiddo to play that part and I do the back up stuff with the effects
08:44:03 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Nice
08:44:17 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Good that you can play with your son
08:44:56 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I have to get him a new guitar
08:45:14 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: he has an elcheapo acoustic and the thing is soooo messed up
08:45:32 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I can't keep that thing in tune to save my life
08:45:47 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: it's good for about 6 mins of playing
08:45:49 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Augh- although just changing the strings can work wonders
08:46:00 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: then it sounds like a sack of wailing cats
08:46:06 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: LOL
08:46:20 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: *meow*
08:46:22 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I've done everything to this wreck
08:46:32 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: ... except junk it
08:46:34 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room:
08:46:34 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: new strings , new nut, new tuners
08:46:48 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: it's toast
08:47:02 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: I heard a great saying recently that might apply here - "You can;t polish a turd"
08:47:14 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: That appealed to me
08:47:24 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: threw 60 bucks in parts at it and it's still a horrid little monster
08:48:14 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: makes me appreciate mine so much more
08:48:34 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: yeah
08:48:47 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I'm just about healed up so I can go back to practicing by sunday
08:48:59 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: Ok, gotta run - I have to shower and everything and pretend I am working for a living ...
08:49:05 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: okie dokie
08:49:12 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: be safe and we'll chat soon!
08:49:15 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: I'll be around if you want to ping me later
08:49:17 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room:
08:49:21 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew's Theory Room: seeya
08:49:23 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room: I'll be out the door in 45 mins
08:49:26 Gaelan: Andrew's Theory Room:
