Thank You armed with My 5 and 6 String Bass I prepare a to cover? I geuss a few tunes.

yeah I know, so wheres C3PO\'s perdiction to sucsesfully navigating an Asteroid field.

I feel a need to try, Billy Corgen\'s 42 his New Drummer is 20, I am about 30, the keyboardist ??, so the age demographic wrrrks Me thinks anyway.

And lastly I do have things that WILL work against Me, but oh well, this post is not about My many faults and failures in the music business.

Chris Moss Acid says I can use the Huzzi Tac Label and hasn\'t even thought of it in 5 years, Oh that got Me feeling OLD! its been 6 years + sents I was on that *web* label (correction by CMA)...

watch for Me to be finally on Youtube, My Dad and Step Mom have a wonderful video of they\'er pet bird humping my head... hmm ha ha ha ha.

Hey man, Just a tip from someone who has auditioned and been an "auditioner:"

Keep your audition relevant to the artist so the people judging the merits of it can see how it fits into the position they are trying to fill.

I can\'t see how the videos that you posted fit into a drum and bass context, much less a major league alternative act like the one you\'re auditioning for.

To be honest, you sounded out of tune and out of tempo on what I saw. Maybe your couldn\'t hear yourself...maybe it\'s time to dust off the metronome. And firm up some fundamentals on song structure and melodic development while you dream big.

Good luck. :)

ahright.

yeah I did and do, this was my first Stumpdangler, far as I go with something written down or as from the inside of My Mind.

hmmm, can\'t stand metronome.

I don\'t think in a click click bick bick kinda of way.

I think in a tha-boom Boom tss tha-da Boom boom tss kind of way.

Thank You for the constructive Criticzisim.

Here\'s some good words of advice for anyone  from the legend Smokey Robinson
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTSOML0hMYw

if you don\'t know who Smokey Robinson is you should check his wiki

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smokey_Robinson

ps: don\'t dismiss the simplicity of a  metronome click, you\'ll never hear a pro do it.   :o

yeah I see where You think I am out of tune with Gandolf I dropped the Octave, but for all of them I do not have the exact toys to reproduce the exact sounds on the albums.

Gandolf is in the third video.

not likely, but Solo and making Music with My Dad and Buddy, looking into some local gigs SOLO, it seems I may be a bit to strange for others to play with, oh well they\'er loss.
the music coming out of UCD is starting to sound pretty intresting, a local Band I did a Musical treatment for is breaking up, my Drummer Friend is one of them, I would like to play with Him, who says they have a friend named Cannonball.

THIS STRANGE BOY NEVER IS GIVING UP!
