16:42:04 Wallimann: Being an instructor doesn't nmean that it's easy for me. :-)
16:42:09 Owen: he confused me by having the same guitar as Kris
16:42:14 Wallimann: hehe
16:42:48 Eat-Sleep-andJam: it comes across different foryou though, being that youve played for awhile
16:43:25 Wallimann: So, how long have you guys been on this site?
16:43:33 Neth: I'm having this weird bug where I press send and it takes what I wrote like a minute to show up :|

16:43:37 Eat-Sleep-andJam: since feburary
16:44:00 Eat-Sleep-andJam: no that just means your computer is a little sloow

16:49:49 Owen: dunno what happened there
16:49:52 Owen:
16:50:01 Eat-Sleep-andJam: told you your computer hates you
16:50:10 Eat-Sleep-andJam: its sick of all the porn youve downloaded
16:50:26 Eat-Sleep-andJam:

16:50:40 Owen: >_>
16:50:42 Owen: xD
16:50:42 Owen: woops!
16:50:47 Eat-Sleep-andJam: ha ha
16:50:59 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Musical Porno
16:51:11 Owen: one day when I am a famous member of a famous band I will be cussing all the little download junkies stealing my money
16:51:18 Owen: but until then
16:51:21 Owen: I am one xD
16:51:27 Eat-Sleep-andJam: Ditto
16:51:41 Eat-Sleep-andJam: I have like over 1,000 songs downloaded
16:51:55 Owen: primarily because i'm too busy spening money on making my own music to buy other peoples
16:52:18 Eat-Sleep-andJam: si signor
16:52:26 Owen: 2074
16:52:39 Owen: thats not counting the whole LOG discography I deleted
16:52:45 Owen: >_>
16:53:10 Eat-Sleep-andJam: i gtg
16:53:12 Eat-Sleep-andJam: bye
16:53:50 Owen:
16:54:07 Owen: can I even justify that conversation?
16:54:20 Wallimann: hehe
16:55:36 Owen: I have a good conscience really.... xD
16:56:24 Wallimann: about downloading?
16:56:50 Owen: yeaah
16:57:05 Wallimann: oh ok
16:57:30 Owen: haha, I dunno
16:57:41 Owen: if you cant afford music, but you download it
16:57:47 Owen: and you tell people its good
16:57:50 Owen: and they buy it
16:57:56 Wallimann: Yeah...
16:58:03 Owen: isnt that contributing in a positive way to the artists finances?
16:58:28 Wallimann: Somewhat. But it does affect musicians somewhat though
16:58:43 Wallimann: Maybe not the major artists.. But more the indie musicians
16:59:10 Owen: its hard to get minor artist stuff in the shops though even
16:59:41 Wallimann: yeah.. But you can always order through their websites
17:00:27 Owen: which normally involves credit cards or something, its a bit of a faff, and most artists still dont offer that
17:01:21 Owen: as that means that young people without credit cards cant buy music from artists that arent in the big time
17:01:24 Wallimann: If you really can't find their music anywhere.. Then yeah, download is OK I guess
17:01:28 Owen: because theres no physical purchase involved
17:01:44 Wallimann: But I'm not gonna preach to you as I download stuff too
17:02:01 Wallimann: I just know that it does affect musicians to some extent
17:02:07 Owen: I just find it an interesting discussion
17:02:26 Wallimann: yeah
17:03:36 Owen: I dunno, in general, would you say the internet is beneficial to artists or not?
17:03:53 Wallimann: Generaly speaking Yes
17:03:57 Wallimann: definitally
17:06:08 Owen: I suppose in general it increases the circulation of music, the variety
17:06:53 Wallimann: Yes, a lot more info available.. I think it's a great tool for artists...
17:10:50 Wallimann: I'm gonna log off
17:10:54 Wallimann: Still have a lot of work
17:11:01 Wallimann: Sorry I was kinda busy...
19:04:57 atconner: G'evenin
19:05:22 Kurt: Hi!
19:05:39 Kurt: wasup?
19:06:44 atconner: Not much.. I'm debating whether or not my fingers are too sore to keep playing. I'm trying to get two of Muris' lessons down: the pentatonic sub, and the blues bending.
19:07:05 atconner: brb -- gotta move some dishes into da kitchen
19:07:16 Kurt: sorry, what means sore?
19:07:46 atconner: Hurt.
19:08:06 Kurt: ah...ohh thats bad for you
19:09:02 Kurt: how long have you been playing guitar?
19:10:38 atconner: Today? 90 minutes.
19:10:58 atconner: I think it's enough. I have to go to work in a little while.
19:11:08 Kurt: and how long in general?
19:11:42 atconner: Oh, many years, but I played wrong. I just played scales up and down, and up and down for a long time. GMC has taught me a lot.
19:12:01 Kurt: yeah its really great!
19:12:46 Kurt: you know, yesterday was my first day on GMC...I play nearly 10 hours
19:12:46 atconner: How about yourself? How long have you played?
19:13:03 Kurt: played
19:13:51 atconner: Wow. How do you type? Your fingers must nearly be falling off!
19:14:18 Kurt: In general I play since about 1 year, but I am fanatic, I practice very much, I am used to that
19:14:51 Kurt: But I also practiced often a little bit wrong
19:15:08 Kurt: until I got GMC member
19:15:57 Kurt: I didn´t even know exactly what alternate picking means
19:16:25 atconner: Man, I didn't know what legato, alternate picking, sweep picking, etc, etc.
19:16:50 atconner: The only reason I didn't go into music professionally is becuase I was worried I would be poor the rest of my life.
19:17:01 Kurt: yes, It is horrible to play with wrong technique
19:17:21 Kurt: I have the same problem
19:17:38 Kurt: So what do you do as profession?
19:17:55 atconner: I'm still a student. I'm taking physiology, and biology classes at university.
19:18:18 Kurt: nice, must be interesting
19:18:26 atconner: It is, but I have no idea what to do with it when I'm done.
19:19:01 atconner: I might continue on, and get a business diploma, too, but I'm not too sure.
19:19:06 Kurt: maybe teaching?
19:19:36 atconner: Bah, at my school there are 3 general ideas of what to do. Medical doctor, then if not that, dentist, then if not that, teaching.
19:20:00 atconner: To get into medical school you need a 90%+ average. Teaching school needs an 85% average. It's almost stupid how hard it is.
19:20:30 Kurt: If you want, you can do it!
19:20:59 atconner: Yeah, but I don't have time to study that much! Last year, I had to sell the family home in Canada, work two jobs, and go to school.
19:21:36 Kurt: and also becoming a guitar hero
19:22:10 atconner: That too. I did other things too. I teach karate, and I was part of teh choir, and I learned how to dance.
19:22:14 atconner: I had a very full schedule.
19:22:41 Kurt: wow, sounds really not boring!
19:23:00 atconner: <-- she is my new favourite violinist.
19:24:18 Kurt: wow..thats great!
19:24:39 Kurt: who composed that?
19:24:52 atconner: Bach.
19:25:09 Kurt: oh..I would have guessed!
19:25:24 Kurt: He composed a lot of shredding!
19:25:52 Kurt: I play also some bach,..but on piano
19:25:59 atconner: J.S. Bach bmv 565, i think.
19:26:41 Kurt: I think I play the bmv 999
19:27:50 Kurt: Yngwie takes his ideas from Bach, don´t he?
19:28:54 atconner: I don't know. Gabriel said in one of his lessons that Yngwie takes a lot of his ideas from Paganini. I'm not sure, though. I don't listen to enough classical music, or Yngwie.
19:29:31 Kurt: Yes also from Nicolo Paganini: a very famous violonist
19:29:44 Kurt: caprice 5
19:30:27 atconner: I have to go, Kurt. I need dinner, then I have to work. :\
19:30:27 Kurt: I think I am also not a big fan of yngwie
19:30:41 atconner: haha, my friends call him the "Guitar masterbator".
19:31:09 Kurt: Ok, was nice to talk with you
19:31:10 atconner: See 'ya!
19:31:15 Kurt: Bye!!
19:53:12 Eat-Sleep-andJam: heyy kurt

21:01:46 muris: so,what are you talking about?
21:01:56 rokchik: Vacation
21:01:57 muris: am I interupted somthing?
21:02:03 rokchik: no not at all
21:02:08 muris: ok
21:02:17 rokchik: I am really enjoying your finger picking lesson
21:02:28 muris: thank,glad you like it
21:02:34 muris: I'll do more of it
21:02:36 Andrew Cockburn: and I am currently trying to do desending pentatonic triplets
21:02:48 muris: after I finish with these jobs
21:02:53 muris: ahhh
21:02:59 rokchik: I can do up to video 4 pretty smooth but the change I still mess up a bit
21:03:06 muris: pentatonic substitution?
21:03:19 Andrew Cockburn: yeah, just stole the triplet run because I love it
21:03:28 Andrew Cockburn: trying to fit it intp one of my songs
21:03:28 muris: ok
21:03:35 rokchik: cool
21:04:00 Andrew Cockburn: will pay you royalties
21:04:04 muris: pullofs are fine tho
21:04:16 muris: but picking has more timing
21:04:26 muris: for those pentatonics
21:04:29 Andrew Cockburn: Yep - my alt picking sucks
21:04:29 muris: triplets
21:04:34 Andrew Cockburn: I can manage pullpoffs better
21:04:38 muris: yeah
21:04:41 muris: easier a lot
21:04:49 rokchik: So Muris your lessons are very musical...who are some of your influences. I find they flow so nice
21:05:02 muris: well I have them too many
21:05:07 muris: huge range
21:05:20 muris: from Django Rainthard to Malmsteen
21:05:28 muris: everything between
21:05:56 rokchik: Cool...yeah there seem to be a Malmsteen feel to them. Very classical but still rock
21:06:06 muris: but most sweet are Like,Knoprfler and Gilmour
21:06:08 muris: IMO
21:06:16 muris: Luke
21:06:31 rokchik: Love Knopfler
21:06:36 muris: yeah
21:06:39 muris: btw
21:06:40 Andrew Cockburn: yeh!
21:06:50 Andrew Cockburn: and Gilmour!
21:06:53 muris: I'll play Sultans on tomorrow gig
21:06:57 muris: ohh
21:07:12 muris: and Comfortably Numb
21:07:17 Andrew Cockburn: nice
21:07:18 rokchik: That is one of my favorites....I really suck at playing it though
21:08:07 muris: I'll make lesson in style of Knofler
21:08:19 muris: just must do it
21:08:25 rokchik: Yah know I'm not a big fan of comfortably numb...great song but up here it is soooo overplayed. Like if you ask for a Floyd song that's what they play or another brick in the wall
21:08:39 Andrew Cockburn: My favourite ever Knopfler is the version of Romeo and Juliet live on the Alchemy album - beautiful nylon sound
21:08:48 muris: hell yeah
21:08:56 muris: or private investigation
21:09:00 Andrew Cockburn: Yes!
21:09:03 rokchik: I Thing High Hopes or Wish you were here would be my faves for floyd
21:09:15 muris: great tunes tho
21:09:16 rokchik: Agree on both boys
21:09:22 muris: I play Wish often
21:09:26 Andrew Cockburn: Shine on you crazy diamond
21:09:34 Andrew Cockburn: the first part
21:09:44 muris: beyond the horizon..
21:09:49 muris: is that start of Hopes?
21:10:04 muris: first verse
21:10:32 Andrew Cockburn: not ringing any bells
21:10:39 muris: High Hopes
21:10:46 muris: start of lyric
21:11:11 rokchik: I"m checking it out Muris as right now all I can come up with is the chorus
21:11:24 muris: no need for chorus
21:11:29 muris: just the beginning

21:30:31 rokchik: I didn't practice much so don't feel so bad
21:30:44 Andrew Cockburn: NO, both of you feel bad !!!!

21:33:54 rokchik: sweet
21:34:10 Andrew Cockburn: its this guitar ... it is!
21:34:16 rokchik: Your really on a Vai kick since you got the Jem aren't you?
21:34:34 Andrew Cockburn: they kind of happened at the same time
21:34:41 rokchik: cool
21:34:48 Andrew Cockburn: I really did get the Jem because I liked pavels - but then I discovered SV

21:35:19 Andrew Cockburn: He has replaced Gilmour as my main inspiration
21:35:31 rokchik: I'm still on my Morello Page kick with a bit of Slash right now
21:35:43 rokchik: Wow that's a big statement Andrew
21:35:54 Andrew Cockburn: NO disrespect to Dave of course
21:36:02 rokchik: none taken
