that's EXACTLY what mine looks like. And for those who wonder why this is such a huge deal, go look up the price range for a les paul classic and get back to me...

2 Songs | Sing for me...

:: 2004 18 December :: 6.48 pm

Hockey at 10, bowling at 12:30, I'm going to be very tired! My audition I feel went very well. If my song selection was ok I'm confident I'll be accepted without a problem. The guy said I will know around christmas. I can't wait to get the letter, no matter what the outcome. Harry Connick junior is weird looking and a bad singer...why is he on tv?

The final lineup for the audition
If youre looking to hear these songs, they shouldnt be hard to find on some kazaa-like program. Michelle is by the Beatles and Blue Bossa is by Joe Henderson. Of course my chord melody arrangement for Michelle is nothing like the original. The melody i refer to is vocal, the chords are the same as used in the song, and the altered chord melody is improv of the original chord melody. Blue Bossa I use the same melody, note wise, and the same chords being played on the piano in the song. I play the chords and melody in two different places for the piece, to add a little flavour and show my versatility. In a typical performance I would play in a single position throughout the song. The timing that I use for blue bossa is much less 'latin' and more jazz/blues sounding, almost swing-like.


First Piece:

I. Chord Melody
Play through repeat
II. Note Melody
III. Rhythm chords
IV. Altered Chord Melody
D.S. al Coda
V. Chord Melody

Second Piece:
Blue Bossa
(No musical direction, play through entire piece each time)

I. Rhythm 1st position
II. Melody 1st position
III. Improv 1st position
IV. Rhythm 2nd position
V. Improv melody 2nd position
VI. Arppegio melody 1st position
VII. Melody 1st position
VIII. Rhythm 1st position

Tomorrow I leave for Homestead for the weekend. I'm gonna get to see Pam and everything else will be fun. Next week is close, who knows what it will bring for your's truly.

I have the not so strange urge to be playing live. It has been too long and I'm dying for applause and seeing the energy and enjoyment on people's faces. Even if it's at Sebring with people sitting around our set-up, I don't care. I just want somebody to be happy with my playing. It's truly an amazing feeling. It's such a personal experience. I don't think I could ever be in a normal band. I need that personal nature of it. I like playing with Marky and Tom, that was perfect. Well it seems soon I'll be playing again but with Mark B. Hopfully I wont have to wait until Sebring anyhow...

This just seems appropriate for what I'm going through right now
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way


Mama, put my guns in the ground
I can't shoot them anymore.
That long black cloud is comin' down
I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door.
