A Good Place To Start

Well, I’ve certainly been AWOL the last couple of months. A lot has been going on, some good, some bad, some blah, blah, blah. Thought I’d throw a couple of things up for you to peruse.
First, for anyone who is interested in starting out in recording music there’s a site that shows you the basics of mixing and listening….and you get to play around with Peter Gabriel’s music..and post your own mixes in SoundCloud. I’ve only touched some of the basic parts (pretty hard to pull my butt out of my own studio) but what I’ve seen is pretty interesting.

On another note, recently spent a night with the legendary Reverend Horton Heat. Totally ass-kicking (and I so want that guitar). Here’s a live video for your enjoyment. Hope to post some pictures from the show soon.

Lera Lynn – Ring of Fire

Well, found this after watching Walk the Line last night, perusing the web for images of Johhny and June. I have always had a deep respect for what I call “the early rebels” of music. When I stumbled across Twang Nations’s post >>>here<< I read the interview with Twang Nation and Ms. Lynn.  Indeed, Ms. Lynn makes the song her own by portraying the darkness and pain that are conveyed in the lyrics.  Needless to say, I loved it and it spoke to me in a totally different, but awesome way.

Here is the >>song<<< , give it a listen. Caution tho’ – it might just break your heart.
