recently as to jeff's and grant's request i extended my hand to glen (twice) offering to put the sh*t slinging aside...did anyone think he wouldn't swat it away? nah
not too long ago vamp and i apologized to one another and said we'd stay above childish insults from here on out. did that last? nah
jeff and jimmy fought, made up, fought and made up, etc. hopefully the current state of good will continues. do we believe it will? nah
so, we're always gonna be a semicolonaway from the next border war. i don't think anyone is carrying this around with them and truly bugged by any of it once they lay down their armor and weaponry and sign off BandMixItUp. at least i hope not.
anyway here's a goofy idea that will most likely go over like a lead balloon. (perhaps justifiably so)
the one thing we all have in common here is a love for making music. sadly geography prevents us all from sitting down to engage in that kind of comraderie. sooooo, what if were able to do some community building and fence mending thru some interwebs recording where we were able to get a bunch of folks (sorry vamp..that's a good natured swipe at ya and i hope you take it that way) to all contribute?
ok, the logistics of this might be a little tough, but i bet it can be done if there's interest.
there are many good musicians here, many good writers, and no doubt many w good problem solving skills.
one idea might be to get any drummers interested (not many here i believe...drumsinmyheart, and rgmix come to mind) to lay down something and then pass it around.
we have a glut of gtr players here, quite a few bassists, one or two keyboardists who i can think of (prevost comes to mind), we have only one string man (vinny) as far as i know, i believe i'm the only mallet percussionist here, guitarmike you play mando as well as gtr if i'm not mistaken, yes?
so, we might divide into teams or....i dunno. any ideas on how this could work? a sign up sheet w instrument of choice? or.....?
whatcha think, is this a totally goofy idea or is there any interest in pursuing this?
