16:36:08 rokchik: Hello
16:36:18 Boundary Layer: ahoy
16:36:39 rokchik: I was just about to post on your intro but saw you were online
16:36:52 Boundary Layer: hehe, ya
16:36:54 rokchik: Just wanted to say welcome from another Canuck
16:37:02 Boundary Layer: just checkin what was over here
16:37:13 Boundary Layer: ah, cool
16:37:18 Boundary Layer: whereabouts are you?
16:37:29 rokchik: yeah there is usually not alot of folks in here but sometimes it can get crowded
16:37:35 rokchik: I'm in NL
16:37:54 Boundary Layer: on the island?
16:38:08 rokchik: I have a few friends in Winterpeg though :)
16:38:17 rokchik: No I'm in Labrador
16:38:38 Boundary Layer: heh, wouldn't call it Winterpeg today
16:38:49 Boundary Layer: it's like 45 out or some silly thing
16:39:06 rokchik: It's pretty warm here today too....30+
16:39:11 rokchik: 45 that's hot
16:39:22 rokchik: we had that a few weeks ago
16:39:30 Boundary Layer: <--exagerates slightly
16:39:35 Boundary Layer: but, it's hot
16:39:42 rokchik: So are you orignally from Manitoba?
16:39:54 Boundary Layer: yup yup
16:40:05 rokchik: so was I...exaggerating I mean...but still very warm
16:40:16 rokchik: cool....me originally from halifax
16:40:19 Boundary Layer: never moved - but certainly plan to
16:40:38 Boundary Layer: not the most exciting place to live...
16:40:43 rokchik: I lived in Sask for like 6 years....didn't much like it
16:40:53 rokchik: so not exciting
16:41:06 Boundary Layer: oh, the one place even more boring than here :-D
16:41:11 rokchik: LOL
16:41:45 Boundary Layer: how long have you been on GMC?
16:41:47 rokchik: Yeah not much going on on the praries....lots of wheat though
16:42:03 Boundary Layer: ^indeed
16:42:10 rokchik: since march....aside from Facebook this is the only site I go on now
16:42:26 rokchik: it's very addictive
16:42:34 Boundary Layer: yeh, seems very helpful
16:42:51 rokchik: soooooo helpful and everyone on here is pretty cool
16:43:03 Boundary Layer: i'm seeing a bit of a roadblock trying to get out of the beginner section
16:43:08 Boundary Layer: probably just have to looka round a bit more for easier stuff to play
16:43:52 rokchik: Yeah I was like that too but with some practice it's not so bad...can be a bit frustrating at first but you'll get it.
16:44:13 rokchik: You'll here practice practice practice a lot
16:44:40 rokchik: I only recently broke out of the beginner stuff but it helped so much
16:44:46 Boundary Layer: yeh, well and I know that I have to
16:45:19 rokchik: cool...and like I said the instructors are great so ask as many questions a syou like...they are all really cool
16:45:22 Boundary Layer: is a little frustrating, like you mentioned though
16:45:58 Boundary Layer: looking through some of the excersises, see stuff that i think i might almost be able to play (minus one section or so) and try it out only to realize that it is deceptively tricky
16:46:20 rokchik: yeah....but it gets better...I was noticing improvement after the first week so stick with it. And the forum is a very good support group as there are people in the same boat as you too
16:46:39 Boundary Layer: :)
16:46:43 rokchik: Plus the more experienced guys are a great help
16:47:05 Boundary Layer: ya
16:47:05 rokchik: There is sooooo much info on the forum
16:47:16 Boundary Layer: (this chat window is soo slow to post...)
16:47:45 rokchik: You've only been playing for a little while right?
16:47:57 Boundary Layer: the theory section seems pretty solid - or like it will be once Andrew fills in the gaps
16:48:07 GuitarDude: hi everyone
16:48:08 Boundary Layer: ^1 month, almost to the day
16:48:18 Boundary Layer: ahoy
16:48:32 rokchik: The theory section is awesome....Andrew is very helpful too for questions
16:49:09 rokchik: hey guitardude
16:49:17 Boundary Layer: was thinking it'd be cool if they were done as podcasts (noticed several suggestions that there should be vids)
16:49:28 Boundary Layer: --at least for the ones requiring little in the way of visual aid
16:49:36 rokchik: yeah...I think its being looked into
16:50:17 rokchik: but I find the theory lessons pretty easy to follow. They are very well written...and Kaneda usually has some great additional info posted too
16:51:36 Boundary Layer: ya, easy read, just that i think i'd much rather be playing (poorly) a new riff, rather than reading
16:51:57 Boundary Layer: could listen to a podcast while I'm away from the guitar for whatever reason
16:52:47 rokchik: just some advise...when I got on here I was really overwlmed by the amount of content and there is even more now....stick with the lesson set up Kris has in the begginner section and maybe do some theory and you will be on your way.
16:53:28 rokchik: may seem boring or mundain but it will help alot for the future lessons
16:54:07 rokchik: podcast would be cool.
16:54:12 GuitarDude: ya
16:54:40 Boundary Layer: they do a get a bit tedious - i started into the 'other beginner stuff from the vault' that he highlighted on the beginner page, just for a change of pace
16:55:01 Boundary Layer: can only do the pentatonic scale for so long before i get tired of it
16:55:43 rokchik: it's good to switch it up to keep yourself interested..i found that anyways.
16:55:49 Boundary Layer: but ya, certainly will keep practicing those exercises. I need quite a bit of work on the beginner licks one
16:56:19 rokchik: the begginer section is the foundation for a lot of the other lessons so it is good to stick with it
16:56:27 GuitarDude: i would like a guitar slaping lesson =P
16:56:36 Boundary Layer: rather than play a clear note, i quite effectively mute the strings with my left hand instead, when i try to pick up the pace :D
16:56:54 rokchik: But you have to develope what works for you....I'm just trying to give you some starting points....sorry if sounds kinda naggy
16:57:10 Boundary Layer: no, not at all
16:57:10 Boundary Layer: appreciated
16:57:47 GuitarDude: for how long have you been playing rokchik?
16:57:54 rokchik: cool...well I don't mean to cut it short but I have to in for some OT. I'll check back later. It was great talking to ya and hope to see ya around more
16:58:14 Boundary Layer: likewaise,
16:58:23 rokchik: oh...2 years but really practicing since I joined GMC in March
16:58:25 Boundary Layer: i'm about to leave work, so i'm off too
16:58:31 GuitarDude: bye
16:58:43 Boundary Layer: laters

21:00:22 Andrew Cockburn: hey where arer they based? I'm going to Cali next week
21:00:40 Sircraigery: well i hope you find a jazz chorus before you buy an amp, at least to try it out
21:00:47 Sircraigery: not actually sure, have to check the website
21:01:06 Andrew Cockburn: yes, trempted by the JC clean sound
21:01:42 Sircraigery: have you ever played on stage before?
21:01:50 Andrew Cockburn: yah
21:01:55 Andrew Cockburn: but only wioth crap amps
21:02:25 Sircraigery: i was playing with a 60 watt hartke, through a mic in a PA system
21:02:44 Sircraigery: it had 3 channels, pretty sweet little amp
21:03:04 Andrew Cockburn: cool
21:03:27 Andrew Cockburn: We had a great PA but we plugged out line outs straight in, no micing, what can I say I was ingnorant
21:03:34 Andrew Cockburn: gitar tone sucked
21:04:02 Sircraigery: hehe well, good equipment is exspensive

21:06:42 Sircraigery: keep sircraigery on that
21:07:20 Sircraigery: we're just playing some covers.....easy covers.....and it was still hard because of nerves (and yes there was actually people there, my mom was in the front haha)
21:07:21 Andrew Cockburn: Wow, great setup!

21:09:19 Sircraigery: yeah, i was sure to add as many "rkm music" things as i could
21:09:55 Sircraigery: that was right in the parking lot of a huge mini mall, so i'd say 500 people heard us play...coming and going
21:10:01 Andrew Cockburn: Where was it?
21:10:08 Sircraigery: sherwood park, alberta
21:10:19 Andrew Cockburn: cool
21:10:54 Sircraigery: we did a gig at a bar too, and i'm still waiting for the DVD on that, with good sound
21:11:21 Andrew Cockburn: Sound is pretty good though (well balance at least, quality is bad on the videos)
21:11:33 Andrew Cockburn: SOUnds like it would have sounded good if you were thet is what I mean
21:11:41 Sircraigery: yeah my mom had my little digital camera, in video mode haha
21:13:08 Sircraigery: our sound guys was adding all our effects and everything (other than distortion), it was really strange to hear effects in the monitors and not in the amp behind you haha
21:13:39 Andrew Cockburn: wierd ...

21:17:23 rokchik: I'm being really picky now because well I have a LP and it's very high end so being a bit fussy
21:17:37 Sircraigery: is it a gibson or epi?

21:18:12 Andrew Cockburn: How's Dave Matthews BTW?

21:21:07 Sircraigery: our band is breaking up though. sucks because we're actually pretty decent
21:21:17 Sircraigery: i have school in regina, SK in sept
21:21:18 rokchik: Oh and the Tragically Hip if you haven't checked my post already on them

21:21:45 rokchik: I use to live in Moose Jaw Sask. Sircraigery
21:21:52 Andrew Cockburn: I saw that ...
21:21:56 Sircraigery: radio has killed it for me
21:22:19 Andrew Cockburn: Is Everyday a good album? I haver that, must have been in my Wifes collection
21:22:27 Sircraigery: i hope i don't get too bored there
21:23:34 Sircraigery: not sure if you guys seen my post in one of the forums, for a "who is better at guitar" joke
21:23:38 Sircraigery: but i'll tell it anyways
21:23:48 Andrew Cockburn: go on
21:23:53 Sircraigery: how many guitar players does it take to screw in a light bulb?
21:24:03 Andrew Cockburn: I donlt know
21:24:18 Sircraigery: 100, 1 to do it, and 99 to say they could have done it better haha
21:24:21 Sircraigery: i love that joke
21:24:26 Andrew Cockburn: lol
21:25:39 Sircraigery: i wanted to make a thread of guitar jokes....but that's the only one i've ever heard. probably because all guitar players are pretty cool
21:26:03 rokchik: Sorry Andrew...phone call. Everyday is pretty good. The space between is a pretty good song
21:26:13 Sircraigery: yep that one is a good one
21:26:20 Andrew Cockburn: ok listening now
21:27:17 Sircraigery: hey andrew is it important that i learn all boxes for each scale?
21:27:32 Andrew Cockburn: Yes.
21:27:39 Andrew Cockburn: So you can forget them when you get good enough
21:27:39 rokchik: Yes
21:27:54 Sircraigery: like, i know it's good to know, but is it good to know all of them at once, or do i learn them together
21:28:24 Andrew Cockburn: depemds if you ever want to be able torip all the way up and down the neck
21:28:43 Andrew Cockburn: It goes like thi:
21:28:50 Andrew Cockburn: Step 1 Learn a box
21:28:56 Andrew Cockburn: Step 2 learn the rest of the boxes
21:29:05 Andrew Cockburn: Step 3 start connecting the boxes together
21:29:18 Andrew Cockburn: Step 4 move past the boxes and treat the whole neck as a unit
21:29:33 rokchik: I'm at stage 3 working towards stage 4
21:29:34 Andrew Cockburn: Obviously, step 4 is dependant on steps 1 2 and 3
21:29:51 Andrew Cockburn: cool
21:30:01 Sircraigery: i'm at step 2 lol
21:30:13 rokchik: it's a very slow process..I still get confused sometimes
21:30:19 Sircraigery: for the major scale, and minor penatonic
21:30:20 Andrew Cockburn: Its important to keep in mind why you are learning the boxes -
21:30:26 Andrew Cockburn: so you can ultimately forget about them
21:30:46 Andrew Cockburn: sounds dumb but it is immensley liberating to be able to play all the way up and down the neck without thinking about it
21:31:14 Sircraigery: yeah, i think that is everyone's goal hehe
21:31:37 Andrew Cockburn: Some people don;t realize step 4 is the end game
21:31:50 rokchik: I'm still having problems with the thinking stage...:)
21:32:56 Sircraigery: should i be realizing what notes i'm playing in each scale? other than the key, because i make a point of knowing that
21:33:24 Sircraigery: i guess with the steps, it'll always be the same right?
21:33:25 Andrew Cockburn: absolute notes are less important than relative notes
21:33:31 Sircraigery: ok good
21:33:49 rokchik: I was just about to say that Andrew
21:34:09 Andrew Cockburn: You must be pretty smart then L)
21:34:24 rokchik: no....your just a really good teacher
21:34:42 Andrew Cockburn: :p
21:34:51 Andrew Cockburn: thank
21:35:00 Sircraigery: i second that
21:35:15 Sircraigery: pavel and kris can rip, but i like andrews teaching methods
21:35:16 rokchik: I think it's fairly common knowledge around these parts but your welcome
21:35:26 Sircraigery: although vids are a good technique tool
21:35:31 Andrew Cockburn: Thanks guys, appreciate it

21:36:31 Sircraigery: i'd be too self conious i think, i don't even like having my picture taken haha
21:36:44 Andrew Cockburn: Gonna try some out next week, hope I can find a Vox and marshall
21:36:58 Andrew Cockburn: and a Roland J thinkg
21:37:19 Sircraigery: i like the Vox amps, but every one I've ever seen is well over a G note
21:37:53 rokchik: cool...I am such a Vox junky now...I am buying a Vox wah when I'm on vacation. But when it comes to amps its a to each there own thing.
21:38:24 Sircraigery: i lost an auction to a vox wah...i really wanted it lol
21:38:33 rokchik: :(
21:38:39 Andrew Cockburn: I fancy a weeping Demon
21:38:55 Sircraigery: now that i have my snarling dogs, i fancy that.
21:39:42 rokchik: I have the Zakk Wylde, which I love, but I want one now that is not so "metal".
21:40:06 Andrew Cockburn: the WD is supposedly very versatile - I want one that can do Funk and Metal
21:40:28 Sircraigery: i also have a line 6 Uber metal..it's a good one
21:40:47 rokchik: cool...yeah the Wylde wouldn't be a good funk wah.
21:40:52 Sircraigery: but i don't use it much now that I've kinda changed my equipement
21:41:10 Andrew Cockburn: No more Line 6 for me .... absolutley cool stuff but I have ODed on it
21:41:22 Sircraigery: lol

21:55:32 Sircraigery: more like the lingo
21:55:56 Andrew Cockburn: ok
21:56:21 Sircraigery: when i say i play a scale at 180 bpm half notes, that actually 360 bpm right?
21:56:45 Sircraigery: or what do i post?
21:56:46 Andrew Cockburn: no
21:56:54 Sircraigery: dammit, i thought i was a machine lol
21:56:57 Andrew Cockburn: beats are actually quarter notes (usually)
21:57:00 Andrew Cockburn: lol
21:57:06 Andrew Cockburn: you are slower than youythought
21:57:29 rokchik: wouldn't it be 60bpm?

21:57:53 Andrew Cockburn: no, turn it around
21:58:00 Andrew Cockburn: well yes, 90-
21:58:21 Andrew Cockburn: if you are playing at 180bpm, but playing half notes you will be playing 90 notes per minute
21:58:22 Sircraigery: my metronome says 180 bpm, and it has half notes selected
21:58:42 Sircraigery: i guess it's a miss-nomer! lol ...that was lame
