I never use it anymore....not for years now.....but it was my only DAW for a long long time.....and the whole reason I’m even here in the first place  ;D


June 14, 2018, 12:39:34 PM
All the KAE folks are over here now agr, but I WOULD be curious as to how many still use KAE as their DAW? I pull it out for a challenge every now and then, and still find it totally useable.... 8)

I haven’t even started on this one as I’ve been focusing on the BOTB challenge.

Plus there’s a World Cup on!!😆

Last minute goal ruined my day  :P

Woohoo!  I used DistroKid which cost me $20.  I've since made $17 so I've very nearly broken even.  You are WAY ahead of me!

That puts you $15.63 ahead of me  :P lol

Battle of the Bands / BOTB 2018 - Bands and Details
« on: June 06, 2018, 01:57:00 AM »
As promised, late I know, the draw has been made!

No doubt you’re all itching to know who your band mates will be.....

But first, a little housekeeping.....

It was decided to go with four bands of three members each......
This way, if there are any latecomers they can be inserted into the bands in numerical order....firstly though, if there is a dropout any late volunteers will automatically take over the missing member’s spot. If there are no back outs, the next volunteer will join Band 1, second volunteer will join Band 2 and so on......got that? Good.

Anyone else who missed the original post.....now is your chance to sign up!
Don’t be shy....everyone is welcome!!

The bands were drawn blindly from a plant pot by my lovely assistant, She Who Must Be Obeyed ( ‘er indoors for short ).

Here are the bands:

Band 1:   @RedJoker - @Joom  - @neilmac

Band 2:   @way2lon  - @Cottonwood  - @Smurf

Band 3:   @whitestrat73  - @papaG  - @onetrack

Band 4:   @Dino - @rkennett  - @BoneDigger

The challenge is to write and record a brand new song, to the best of your ability, and post it to the BOTB SoundCloud account (login details when I remember what they are from last year  :P ) before midnight on the 31st July 2018.

We had two theme suggestions, so you are free to choose from either ( or both if you’re feeling ambitious   :P ).

The themes were “Lost Forever” and “Anger Management”.......

Any style, any length, any method is completely acceptable

Practice is encouraged but not mandatory - unless you were drawn in the same band as PG, in which case different rules apply....  :P

Have at ‘er boys and girls!

Congrats Neil and G.  As said, and as always, great tunes in there.

So, does the outstanding quality of this collab mean we're going to be seeing a G/Neil album coming out in the future?  8)

Only if he does all the work  ;D

White - I didn't give it an undercoat...apparently the auto body paint doesn't "need" it...I'm almost wishing I'd gone with my gut and ignored that now....but it's too late now lol

The pics are a bit deceptive BD...the blue tarp makes it look more blue than it is lol
But it's definitely going to be unique  ;D
I'm not really a big humbucker fan either - P90s for me :D but I wanted to try the "Filtertron" type for something different...

I guess this should technically be a Cabronita rather than a Deluxe....
Kinda fitting to call it the Blue Bastard actually :P

Some more pics from yesterday....

After sanding down the rough finish on Saturday night I did more colour coats. Came up pretty nice. Then it was onto the 600 and 800 grit for the neck and go over the body again before clearcoat. Also removed the taping on the binding and razored the excess paint and glue from the tape off the binding, and sanded the paint edge with 800 grit.

Now to be fair, I like the colour/finish....but it wasn't quite what I expected to see at this point. Maybe after the clearcoat and polishing it'll come up different, but for now it seems a little less "solid" than I was expecting, if you know what I mean. It's not a shortage of coats let me tell you :P

Possibly I did something wrong..... but I still think it looks pretty good....
Also noticed a few blemishes in the paint job which can't be fixed without major effort...luckily it's on the bottom side so it won't be so obvious lol

Anyway, on to the clear coat....

Went on really nice on the neck, makes it look stained without the stain :P
The body however didn't seem to go so well... got it a little thick in places :( 
Having said that, the finish is, once again, rough so it'll need a sanding before the next clear coat goes on, so maybe it'll level out at that point. Wait and see I guess.....

It's all a learning process - nothing is wasted, even mistakes  ;D
