    I'm in this band, Secret Universe, a casual band consisting of Todd on vocals and guitar, Steve on drums, me on bass. We've been meeting Sundays as schedules allow, it's great fun.

    Our first set is starting to flesh out, but we are still spending out time on composing. Note that we are leaving space for an additional guitar player, so there are big gaps in the rough tracks now. We will be looking for someone appropriate to step in at some point.

    I'll post more as things fall into (or out of) place. Here is some stuff so far, one is a rehearsal for Sidewalk Paintings. I made a video for it:



    This is a studio session of Ice Storm, it is a great fun song to play, very energetic. We currently play it right after our only cover, Breathe, so it's a nice contrast plus they are in the same key :^) :



    Here's a warts and all smartphone recording of our first pass at Cold Hello, currently my favorite song to play:



    So these are all very much works in progress, but a good indication of how our sound is evolving. Our goals are currently to continue writing, seek another player, then become rich and famous overnight.



    I don't have a Strat, but I do play Fender!

    I will apologize in advance if some of these videos come down, I will be updating and rotating these files periodically, and this post, on an irregular basis.

    We had our second second guitar player audition, this one went really well!

    The first guy really must not have listened to our tracks - at all. He came in with a Mesa Recto, 40 effects, 20 of them distortion, and pretty much just walked all over everything. Not that there's anything wrong with that, just not here. This time I met the guy first (also named Mike - confusion begins), got our bearings, then met up.

    Much as I'd hoped, he walked through the door with a Strat (well two actually) and a Deluxe Reverb, so I know we were at least on the same wavelength. We all thought he sounded fine, kept up with us generally even when I'm hitting bad bass notes ha ha.

    Knew how to lay back and when to step in the spotlight. It sounded like a lot of the songs finally fell into place as he filled those spot we left for him. He said he would like to be back too, we'll see when he sleeps on it.

    So... maybe we will have our fourth soon. So far this house of cards has not collapsed!

    Very rough warts an all work in progress with a new member. :eek:



    We tape our rehearsals. A pretty energetic song that needs a lot more work. Just an update post. It'd be great if we could meet more frequently, but alas.

    Also



    Also a wip.
