Worked the first half of the day, then kids and grandkids came out for the afternoon.  Didn't know it, but one of the granddaughters is studying to be a pediatric nurse in the Air Force.  Go figure.  From all the news, just doesn't seem like a good time to jump into the military...

It did, Smurf.  Met some new neighbors, got to see a couple we hadn't seen for a while, and just had a good chat.  And everybody enjoyed the food.  We enjoyed it.  But now tomorrow and Monday will be cleaning up and moving a ton of stuff again...

I'm glad to hear that so many did show up with the weather being so sucky, and glad everyone had a good time! ;D

That included you folks also, right?! 8)

Well, after all that work it's over.  Did rain all day, so it was an inside affair.  And of course the rain kept a few from coming, ended up with 36.  All had a great time chatting and eating, it was worth the work.  And I have leftovers.  Now, song stuff...

Well, everything is ready to go, whether it's inside or out.  Tons of prep work, lots of food ready to cook, and today the wife baked 4 cakes and 50 cupcakes for dessert.  We have food for 50, but with the rain I don't expect more than 30 or so.  In any case, won't be back here till tomorrow night...

Some probably won't come, and the rest will all have to fit in the house somehow.

Got the 2 picnic tables hauled in and set up today, 30 lawn chairs ready to go, tables to cook outside, lots of other crap, and just saw that now they're calling for rain tomorrow...  :o >:( ???

Well, gotta go fix a computer problem, then back to prepping for Saturday.

Have to find time in there somewhere to write a song...  ???

I'm just being silly based on neil's comments of weed varieties.  In my head, it was funny to associate Acoustic Alchemy to weed shops.   ;D ;D

FEBRUARY 2018 CHALLENGE - MODES
« on: February 10, 2018, 01:25:28 PM »
Its not what you think!!

So I had thought that it would be a good idea to go for a technical challenge, as I don't understand theory and anything that would force me to learn would be worthwhile.  However, even trying to set the challenge blew my mind so I drew back and the challenge is:

Write and record a new song that links to mode(s) in some way. 

Lots of options - modes of transport, fashion etc.  You don't have to include the word but if you don't please explain the link when you post.

Any style, any time signature, any length (within reason).

No turnips are to change hands between entrants or voters - any evidence of root vegetable abuse will lead to immediate disqualification.

Up load to Soundcloud as usual by midnight wherever you are on 28th February 2018.

That's it! Good luck everyone.

Interesting concept.....

Not sure I like the anti turnip rule though  :P

My "studio" is getting a slight renovation so we'll see if I get it back together but some of the changes will help my recordings. I'm excited!

Modes? I like it! So, if we did a community effort, would that be a com-mode?  Hmm, my mind's in the toilet tonight.

Okay, modes it is. I'll have to mull over that one a bit.

I’m 98% done.

I tried something different I’d never done for a challenge before. I’ll tell all after the complete has finished, otherwise it might distract the listener 😆

So, can I use musical modes? I'm trying to improve my theory knowledge anyway.

Just to verify, this can be about a "mode of" something. So, a mode of transportation, mode of thought, etc., but doesn't have to necessarily mention the word "mode", correct?

I made a schoolboy error.

After listening back to my rough mix - after about the tenth time, I realised I sing the word “node”. Not “mode”.

In the context of the song it makes little difference. But in accordance to the specific nature of the challenge criteria, then it’s a bit of a blunder.

My wife thought I said "mowed".  She commented that it was a rather specific theme this month!
