OT-- Any musicians here?

Goto page 1, 2  Next
Guest Ed Guest

I'm just curious-- mypilot and SamIntel both mentioned in a recent topic that they are trumpet players. I play bass guitar, strictly amateur, but it is something I enjoy very much.

Any other musicians here?

I play the trumpet and the piano. Falconjgc plays the drums and bass guitar.

I am in a school jazz band of 15 with 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. Yesterday we played at the Brookhurst festival. Last month we recieved first place in the Fullerton Jazz Festival. We were in the Junior High section because there was no elementray section. Our school website is http://www.losaltosbrethrenschool.org/ Unfortunately I didn't get to be in any of the pictures. Here is the band part of it. http://www.losaltosbrethrenschool.org/html/about_us/about_us_frameset.htm

Wow, a lot of Keyboardists here...... well I'm another. In the same room as my FS set-up I have a small home music studio.

I use mainly software based programmes such as the excellent Propellerhead's REASON V2.5, Cubase SX, T-Racks Mastering Suite, etc.

I have a 76 Key Evolution MIDI Keyboard that links with the PC and REASON, and also a couple of Acoustic Guitars and a gorgeous Studio Condensor Mic (This Mic is so special but it does sting every time I think how much it cost).

I'm mainly into Producing and Mastering and do some Mastering for local bands who want to add a touch of final polish to their newly recorded Demo CDs.

I don't charge for the Mastering / Post production that I do, so if anyone has an unmastered Demo CD that they wanted to send to me, I'd be happy to Master it - a lot of people are very pleasantly surprised by the results they get from Mastering.

Send me a PM if you're interested Wink

I wonder if theres a genetic link between Aviation / Flying and Music to have so many musicians on the forum. Laughing

TGK,

I may take you up on that someday-- I've gotten to be the unofficial sound man for my current band, because nobody else will do it. All I have now is rehearsal recordings, but eventually we'd like to do some demo CD's to pass around.

Regarding the genetic link between flying and music-- I think it's broader than that-- I have noticed that a lot of science/technical/engineering-types are also musicians. I think people stereotype scientists and engineers as geeks, but that's not my experience. I think the same ability for abstract, creative thought that makes a good engineer also makes a good musician. Not that I'm a good musician, but I know a lot who are really excellent musicians, and hold advanced degrees in science and engineering. Everybody in my band are engineers.

I think those same qualities apply to flying; it requires abstract thought and creativity to fly IFR-- you have to visualize the world outside the airplane as it is represented by your instruments: "Instrument flying is when your mind gets a grip on the fact that there is vision beyond sight. - U.S. Navy 'Approach' magazine circa W.W.II.

Wow.I've only ever heard a grade 7 musician play. I Love the piano from Linkin Park-In The End,Faint and I Love the piano in Gary Jules-MadWorld.

I'm sure there is a genetic link because only 30-40 pilots at Air Mauritius don't play some type of instrument or play in a band.The rest do [They have over a few hundred pilots]. SAA is very similar. Music has a great effect on every one of the pilots especially my father and I.

I play the drums. Got a John Bonham Ludwig kit in my cellar.
Actually just started putting up some foam soundproofing. What a difference that makes.
Good to see we got some fellow musicians on here.
Rock On!!!

^ Nice kit man. But I am curious on why you have two floor tom-toms and only one normal tom-tom. Anyway looks nice Smile

Pro Member Trainee
Suds Trainee

Thanks. My kit is based on the kits John Bonham, from Led Zeppelin, used. He used a big kick and big toms. My kit has 14, 16 and 18 inch toms and a 26 inch bass.
At times, he would go even bigger with his toms. They say hey even went so far as to turn a 22" bass drum upright to use as his low tom. Boom!!!
That wasn't the only thing that gave him his big sound though. It was the way he hit them. They say he could make any kit sound huge...

.... Just say the word Ed... All it would take is mailing it over to me (either snail or as a WAV by email) and I'd spend a few hours sweetening it up and a touch of compression/limiting to get the best out of the dynamic range (make it subjectively louder and punchier).

Heys suds, do you neighbours complain to you when you play the drums? I am thinkinf of getting my own drum kit soon and was wondering how many neighbour and police complaints I will go through. And whats the best soundproof protection I can get if not cheapest?

No complaints so far, although they do say they can hear me sometimes if they have their windows open or are outside.
Just last week I ordered some foam tiles from www.foamandupholstery.com . They seem to be the cheapest I could find for soundproofing foam.
I've added 72 square feet of tiles around my kit and I'm thinking of getting a couple of 4x6 foot sheets of the hanging ceiling panel ones to divide that half of my cellar in two. That should help even more.
Without the foam and smooth walls the sound just bounced all over the place and was way too loud for me down there. I wasn't too worried about what my neigbors could hear.
If you do get a kit, I highly recommend taking lessons from a professional. There is ALOT to learn. Way more than I ever thought.
Good luck,
Suds

Same here. Cost me $100 a month for 1/2 an hour a week.
How do you practice?

Hey,

I am a lead guitarist in a band and love playing, either to chill out or to entertain. Next to F/S, it is one of my favourite pasttimes.

I've been playing the piano for the last 34 years. In the early 80s I studied for six years as a classical concert pianist. I also performed frequently on stage thru '86. Illness and other circumstances put it to an end in '88. I still play often and I teach piano now. I also tune and service pianos.

Thanks, Suds. I put that together from a Carvin kit about four years ago. I have a newer fretless bass that's much prettier (another kit, but with a nice lacquer finish instead of the plain-jane tung oil like on that old one) but I don't have any pictures of it.

I know I said I play the drums but would creating music on the PC [using Ejay 4] count towards being a bit of a musician Question
