sorry, I can't even feed you any of that lame cliche crap as a joke. I just want you & I to make a connection through music.
I get asked "Why no backing tracks?". I thought that "Because I play an instrument" answered the question but many didn't understand so I'll try to explain it another way: Performing with a backing track is like riding a roller coaster. It is pretty exciting the first time but it will be the same. exact. ride. every time. It gets old fast. No flexibility. No heart..
Playing without a karaoke track is more like driving a race car. There is more responsibility, more flexibility, more danger, and more personal power. I can stop when I WANT to, go someplace new in an old song, play it different than before, go around the block again or skip a block.
Once the roller coaster starts I'm just a passenger. When I PLAY I am in control.
I like to drive! Don't you?
My most embarrassing moment was ... well ... childhood through 50 years of age. Maybe 55.
My first guitar was a Tiesco Spectrum 3 from K-Mart. :) I didn't know it by model name at the time. That guitar was my pride & joy.
Since then I've become a guitar freak. I have a room full of guitars both electric and acoustic but on StreetJelly I'll probably be playing one of the following:
Xaviere dreadnaught (bubinga/cedar)
Xaviere dreadnaught (zebrawood/spruce)
(Those 2 put much more expensive guitars to shame)
Michael Kelly Forte Port
or my 1977 Epiphone FT150 Bard, a cherished possession from my youth.
