Do you why bagpipe players always march?
Just to be clear I was not in a metal band with a vibraphonist though I did ask him to play on some tracks. Death metal is something I do in my home studio. The gigging I do is usually backing up somebody else with a name, I was a versatile guitar player even if my 1st love was metal. I appreciate your kind words and your harsh ones, for me this would be a hard thing to fathom when I was younger but I'm 53 now. Its not my first rejection. 'Crushing' is what somebody said, I am sorry I did not quote it, thats how I feel, 'crushed'. I dont need to go into the details it matters not in the greater scheme of things. Nobody gets rich making jazz vibes recordings. I'm stepping away, most if not all of my gear is going up, I dont feel like playing guitars or looking at them. I'll leave a link when its all up for grabs or maybe not, you all peruse Reverb.
There have been times when I've just needed a break from the music biz.most if not all of my gear is going up, I dont feel like playing guitars or looking at them.
I certainly do."So playing this club is the best I can do, is it?", then " I really can't be bothered right now". So I get it. All I'd say is: try not to sell anything really special to you, because you'll probably go back to making music because you want to one day, but the gear you sold will probably be long gone.
If you ever see my faded cherry red Gibson 1961 SG-shape Les Paul with the Sideways Vibrola replaced by a stop bar, you're welcome to buy it. I don't have $10,000 to spend on it. See what I mean?
(assuming you mean piano accordion, not all the button systems)Isn’t an accordion the portable version of a vibraphone?
ALL bagpipes?I hate bagpipes
I was producing a project that I was so deeply involved with that I decided to spend almost $10k on a studio upgrade that I thought would make the project much better. The day I made the decision to spend the money everything was hunky dory with the singer, but between the time I wrote the $9300 check and the day I received the new gear which was about 2-3 weeks the Singer decided he was going to quit music forever and I could just go Fu*k-off. He was mad about some other record he did 20 years ago that didn’t get the rerelease he had hoped for and it was just too damn bad for me and had zero feeling of remorse that I just wiped out my savings to make our record better. The record never got finished and I still have the gear, but for two months after that I wanted to quit all music and liquidate my studio. I got through it and am making better music now.The vibraphonist I used to play with got signed and moved to LA. I was not asked to play on his release. That pretty much says it all doesn't it? Why overthink it?
Not my best week.
I decided to list all my equipment and guitars. I don't need them anymore and, more importantly, I don't want them anymore, especially the Stratocasters. I'm done. I don't want to be tethered to failure anymore.
I dont even know who I am without guitars and metal and all that bull**** but I'm going to find out.
