Hello, and welcome to another wonderful edition of the FNGT. Like normal, I'll go ahead and get you started.

This week, I'm going to cut to the chase.

This is my understudy, in whom I am well pleased. This is her midterm, in effect. Both guitar parts are her's and the drumming is based on her direction. She would like you to hear it - probably for compliments! ;-)

It is not without error. However, it's still pretty fucking impressive. I am legitimately impressed. I hope that you are also as impressed, because she put a fuckton of work into this. I would wager that she has 50 or 60 hours into this one project, total. She says she has no idea. That's not helpful!

Anyhow, it doesn't need much more introduction. Turn your volume up. Trust me. EH pretty much has one favorite sound at the moment, and it's best played with some volume. She has putting scales together nicely. She pays attention. Enjoy!

Psst... That's what you get when you put your hours in. My only real part is playing the drum as she asked. She does not know drum notation or anything - yet.

Finally, I can't be certain how late I can stay tonight. I have people and I am also exhausted. So, it's probably not going to be that long. I'll try to do two hours.

drum notation is bs

wtf even is this

i play drum and i dont even know

only thing crazier is bagpipes lol

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

I think those little ones are called leprechaun notes, dancing around the bigger ones.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

The drum one looks like it might be for a guy with a bass drum strapped to his chest. The top of the line is one hand, under the line is the other.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

That looks like a 4/4 march with rototoms, maybe?

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Wow, this is freaking awesome. I am very impressed. She plays better than I do already!

Edit: I almost forgot

I fucking told you!

EH laughed. Thanks, she says. She goes on to say she didn't make it perfect, but she practiced hard. I'm no typing it out verbatim. I still haven't slept.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

She just saw the edited flowers. She says thanks again. I half expected her to say "Good."

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Different strokes for different folks. You have a style all your own that's great, and fills a special place.

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago  (edited ago)

This is absolutely stupendous!! You just keep getting better, and better, and better. Artist/Songwriter/Producer/Engineer. Your talent, dedication, and perseverance are so incredible. Especially from about 2:20 on, THAT's a bitchin' solo! You are the Queen of Crunky and you better get used to this sound, you'll be hearing a lot of it. What a gift you are. XXXOOO.@--<-<-- @--<-<-- @--<--<-

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago  (edited ago)

"Thank you! Look carefully!" EH

I don't need to add anything. This is her work. I had issues staying stable on a drum stool! She told me what kind of drum she wanted and where. It was cryptic language that she used, including the word 'crunky' many times. We finally worked out what it was she wanted. She needs to learn to play the snare.

[–] heygeorge 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

EH!

Bravo!

Compelling enough that I wanted to listen again! You are really getting somewhere... Not as if you need me to tell you. You rock: Keep putting in your hours and you will slay! TB is right to be proud.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Also, fuckin' right, I'm proud. However, I'm trying to make sure it's about her!

I might be preening more like a peacock than her, at least momentarily.

I am gonna have a glass of wine and then probably go be sociable and then go to bed.

Wine is a delightful idea.

In Vino Veritas.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

"Thank you!" She then went on to tell you it was quite a bit of work, and it was.

Her ears have made significant improvement. She'll damage her hearing soon enough.

[–] PM_ME_YOUR_BOOBS2 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Merry Christmas! Nice!

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Merry Christmas to you all and yours. Wishing you peace, joy, and laughter.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Totally off topic, but I'll throw that line in when doing Stairway to Heaven.

"Can anybody hear the laughter?"

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Thank you cof! Merry Christmas to you and yours as well!

Cheers!

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

That was fucking awesome!

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Thank you, and dope!

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

I might as well dump this again:

@cynicaloldfart - your mom might like this one.

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago  (edited ago)

She's heard it, to high acclaim. That's some excellent work. People might think that's a weird thing to say, but TB has an effect on women of all ages, up to 92 at least.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Damned right. Ask your mom if she wants to go dancing? LOL

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Sounds great man!

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Of course! :-p

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

The thread is going slow. Like, very slow.

I have nothing to do with this. However, you've heard me play with him many times. This is a dear friend of mine named Dan Hudson. He was in the RHB tracks - Roy Hudson Band. Then, he split up with Linda Roy.

He's since started making weird stuff like this:

https://instaud.io/34Y2

It's seasonal. Trust me.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Howe big of a rock? Thats a nice present!

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

LOL I figured y'all would enjoy it. That's Dan. I had not a damned thing to do with that. Do NOT blame me.

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

You've gotten us off to a fantastic start and I suspect the holidays has people busy with real life, and that's great. Maybe this is a good time for you to get that sleep you, and your bones, are needing.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

I decided on a glass of wine. I'll sleep soundly tonight.

I used to call this period 'the holihaze' cause I'd stay trashed from thanksgiving to nye.

That was not very productive.

Either way, I'm not sleeping yet.

I should describe the house. J is in the living room and making googly eyes at my son. His girlfriend is here. His best friend and his girlfriend are here. The missus is upstairs and probably somehow sleeping. I'm not sure how she does it. It's not quiet.

So, I'm kinda comfy in here with my wine.

[–] Nadeshda 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Very seasonal and fun! Nice share!

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Chris says that the singer sounds like Bob Weir

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

He used to do bar blues. You've heard him before. I have a bunch uploaded. Want me to relink?

[–] 70times7 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Reminds me of a japanese cartoon.

Catchy tune.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Thanks!

[–] Nadeshda 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Yip, good observations indeed!

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Since the Trees didn't take me very long to play and record. I decided to play another intro from the same album while I had the guitar in my hand. This one was a little bit harder on an acoustic guitar, with those six string chords and the high action I had a little trouble getting all the strings to ring out all the time. That's a lot easier to do on an electric guitar. Or even a good acoustic guitar. Anyways, here is the intro part to Rush Hemispheres played by me on an acoustic guitar.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

That guitar does not like staying in tune very long, does it?

Ready to throw it on the fire?

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

theres no fire here at the moment

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Hello everyone. Happy Friday night and Merry Christmas! My friend Christopher, who I play along with while he sings on a lot of my submissions has not made it over by me since around Thanksgiving, so it's been a while since we got to jam. I was talking to him the other day and he sent me a link to a song that he wanted to have me share with you guys tonight. He said it's a Christmas song. It's not really done in the traditional Christmas spirit. I'm not sure what it even has to do with Christmas, maybe it takes place on Christmas. Maybe you can tell me. Here is Christopher playing and singing a Woody Guthrie song, the 1913 Massacre

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

That was very nice. Good recording too. He has a voice that fits the song.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

He's actually coming over here soon so I will let him know!

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

he said thanks! we're gonna jam out something now

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Woody was awesome. Tell 'em I said thanks! I'm just gonna enjoy it.

[–] nigger_plz 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I love that song. Real as real can get. Back in the day, they would try to unionize and Rockefeller would go in there and send goons like punk ass prisoners and kill at will just so he didn't have to pay miners decent wages. Woody Guthrie was the man at spreading the word.

Bound For Glory is a good movie. Shows how Guthrie would ride the rails and be among the hobos playing for workers trying to spread the word about unions.

Chris knows some damn good stuff.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Its dope as fuck that chris singing is reaching out to you all somewhere in the world just like woody still spreading the word

[–] Nadeshda 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

I do enjoy his singing so much! There is so much wholesomeness in his style, accent... I always enjoy his singing and playing. Tell him thanks for sharing!

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

He says thanks! He loves your singing too

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Since it is a Woody Guthrie kind of day already, here is some more Woody Guthrie This Land Is Your Land

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Woody gave that song to the public domain. He figured he wanted everyone to sing it. So, anyone could sell the sheet music and it still stays with us today.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Thats cool

[–] oftotc 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I dug it dude.
