Summer Band Practice [30 Jun 2005|01:18pm]

[ mood | restless ]

Okay, gang, school's out, and you know what that means, don't you?
Lots and lots of PRACTICE!!!
We need to do three things
1. Pick a new day of the week if necessary (or maybe two?)
2. Pick a new timeslot
3. Practice! Practice! Practice!

As far as new days of the weeks go, I'd very much like to see practices moved to the weekend. Because then I can get myself and Laura dropped off and picked up. But, strictly speaking, no day is bad.
Any thoughts?

Okay so I guess tehre's no band practice tomorrow, on Monday.

But how's everyone for next Saturday?
I know it's Kendal's birthday party but if we get together at noon we'd be done for sure by three, so I don't see any major problem.

Okay, so the fact that battle of the bands is over means one thing and does not mean another.

It does NOT mean we can start taking practices off and letting our band fade into obscurity. We still need to practice once a week, every week.

It does however mean that we can start having a lot more fun during practices, trying new songs, experimenting, developing our own sounds.

On that note, I'd like everyone to learn these two songs:

The Rolling Stones - Paint It Black

Pink Floyd - Time

But just the basic outlines of them, as in what chords to use and that stuff, because I've got some bold new directions to go with them (well not so much paint if black because it's all been done before but I'm excited about Time)

And I know you don't like Time or Pink Floyd, AK, but don't worry. We'll be playing it a lot faster and more terminable than the original.

Band Practice [15 May 2005|02:40pm]

Band practice tomorrow?
Auditions are this coming week, and it looks like our setlist is going to be, in order:
Execution Commentary
I Want You
Smells Like Teen Spirit OR In Bloom(if we learn it)
Floyd The Barber

And if they only ask us to play a song or two for auditions, I think we'll go with Floyd The Barber and I Want You.

Therefore, band practice on Monday if it's happening will be a strict session of perfection and review.
And Barbecue Flavored Chips.

Clearly, I haven't been thinking straight.
I've put competence ahead of rocking.
So I take back everything I said - no one is getting kicked out of the band if they continue to be incompetent.
It'll just be a while before we're good.

Nirvana - You Know You're Right
Kind of haunting, 'cause I don't think they ever performed it live.

Rocking [12 Apr 2005|08:51pm]

[ mood | awesome ]

Well, gang, I was listening to Love Buzz over and over as I usually do, and suddenly, it hit me, the singular vision of the ultimate rocking band, and we can do it.
As far as skill goes, the only member of the band that needs to be good is the drummer, and we are lucky enough to have Roger, an outstanding drummer to keep the beat. Otherwise, the rest have to be no more than proficient, and we can rock.
As such I've decided I'll scrimp and I'll save and win the lottery and whatever to get that microphone we need and then... mark my words.
The 'Squad will rock the faces of many.

p.s. Drew, get a strap for your bass, it really is a lot more fun to play standing up.

My mom didnt seem happy about a practice on Monday, but I think she's allowing it.

So bring your stuff over Sunday night, so you can just take the bus home with me Monday

And you have to leave by 6:00

And learn the Bear Song, it kicks ass

It's evolution baby. [05 Apr 2005|11:14pm]

[ mood | Danko Jones ]

Practice the bear song people, I really wanna sing it. I'll Learn it on bass so I can teach it to Stern during our next practise. I've designed the shirt, and if it turns out as sucessful as I hope then I'll get Bex to make more of them.

Oh man, we rock.

I Want You [31 Mar 2005|09:36pm]

I was going to post saying about how I've retabbed I Want You so that the pre-chorus and the verse matched better, but as it turns out I was just plaing it wrong.
That is all.

new Cover Idea [30 Mar 2005|09:55pm]

Every now and again there comes a song so insurmountably awesome that we have a DUTY to cover it,
Big Balls, by AC/DC, is one of those songs.
It doesn't seem prohibitively difficult.
But be sure to check the owners manuals of your instruments - because this song is so awesome they may explode by playing it.

Turns out we were playing a part of "I Want You". Not the first part, the "You got to say....." part.

It should have been played

Thats why it sounded wrong.

Super duper practice

As it stands, we seem to know Smells Like Teen Spirit, and Floyd the Barber

For next time, lets get Reptilia straight.

Also, I just kinda felt like posting.
