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.

all three video\'s will eventually make it on to the MySpace and or the You Tube.

Chris -explain these vids to me. It looks like you are getting ready to rock out on a drum beat, then, I don\'t hear any bass! I\'m confused easily, plus I have poor hearing. Help me out here. What happened and what\'s the latest?

Chris DiCicco

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. :)

Chris DiCicco

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
