Re: favorite smell

Diesel fuel, cordite, and horse manure will always smell like home.

I like the coppery smell you get on your hands from playing an acoustic guitar.

In a very similar vein...

Re: Revolutionary!

The Stooges (1968-1974) A few years after The Beatles sang " I want to hold your hand" Iggy Pop, front man for The Stooges screamed " I want to be your dog". In an era of Prog Rock and Pop Songs The Stooges played their instruments with ferocity, simplicity and with more volume ...

Re: Blues

Howlin' Wolf is probably the most influential bluesman of his time.. The Stones covered Little Red Rooster, Hendrix did Killing Floor, Everybody did Backdoor Man. The guitarist in his band, Hubert Sumlin, was a major influence on Richards, Page, Clapton, etc. These are some of his more well known on...

Re: Blues

That said, I really can't stand Chicago blues That is unfortunate. That means no Muddy Waters and no Howlin' Wolf. I've actually been looking for more delta blues though, as I love slide guitar. That is a great video right there. It kind of sort of reminds me of another youtube vid I saw of one of ...

Re: Strange or even mildly amusing things about your body

My right foot is a lot flatter than my left, which means it's about a shoe size longer. I have incredibly long, skinny fingers. My nose is very slightly crooked, and I have no idea why. I have pectus carinatum which was partially corrected by surgery. Plus the fact that I have gigantic pecs (yet iro...

Re: Listen to everything?

I have trouble getting into the extremes of some genres, such as noise rock and really heavy metal. A lot of my friends love metal like that, but it gets to a point for me where it just sounds like heavy machinery with cookie monster vocals. That's more of a subgenre though. I'm fine with metal as a...

Re: need advice on buying an acoustic guitar

You can buy a pretty solid acoustic for that much. Take your time and peruse the local stores, they should be used to people hanging out and playing the instruments. I don't recommend buying online, because as others have stated there can be a lot of variation even among better brands, wood is a les...

Re: What were your dreams last night?

I woke up with blood all over me, but I was more concerned about getting blood on my sheets and on the suit that was spread across the bed. Then I realize I have a massive gunshot wound a la Giovanni Ribisi's character in Saving Private Ryan, which continues to bleed profusely. Kind of freaky I supp...

Re: Grades, Marks and Report Cards

There was a period in my life where my teachers thought I was mentally handicapped in some way, because I evidently could not read, write, or do basic addition. Really, I just thought hanging out in the small remedial room with a couple of kids was much better than being around a swarm of obnoxious ...
