Corna [Sep. 18th, 2006|02:44 pm]

The corna (Italian for horns, also mano cornuta, horned hand) is a gesture with a vulgar meaning in Mediterranean countries. Its origins can be traced to Ancient Greece. It is realized by stretching the index and little fingers while holding the middle and ring fingers down with the thumb.

rock on... \,,/

Hammer to Fall [Jul. 5th, 2006|05:27 pm]

[Current Music |Queen]

Here we stand, here we fall, history don-t care at all
Make the bed, light the light; lady mercy won-t be home tonight

You don-t waste no time at all, don-t hear the bell but you answer the call. 
Comes to you and to us all, while you-re waiting for the Hammer 

Every night, and every day, a little piece of you is falling away
Lift your face, the western way; build your muscles as your body decays

Toe your line and play the game, let the anaesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name, you know it-s time for the Hammer to fall

Rich or poor or famous but your truth; it-s all the same Oh No Oh No
Lock your door but rain is pouring through the windowpane Oh No
Baby, now your struggles are in vein

You who grew up tall and proud, in the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices can-t be heard, so we want to scream it louder and louder and louder

What the hell we fighting for?  Just surrender and it won-t hurt us all
Just got time to say your prayers, while your waiting for the Hammer to
Hammer to fall

Give it to me one more time.

I've recently come into posession of a VOX Symphonic Bass - s.no 69573.

It's a P-bass styled, 4 String bass.

It has a Fender shaped body, and from what i can see has a 2 tone sunburst thing going on.

There are 2 knobs (tone and volume), controlling the single 4 pole pickup.

The pickguard covers most of the front of the body of the bass.

The tuning pegs are the clover style tuners.

The headstock is Fender-esque. and has a string tree.
On the front of the headstock, is the detailing of "VOX SYMPHONIC BASS"
with a slightly worn triple trapezoid JMI logo, with the words "Dartford, Kent" On the back of the headstock, near the E string tuning peg is the serial number, debossed into the wood. and another decal "Made in England"

The fretboard is rosewood, the neck I suspect is maple.

Will attach pictures soon... I can't find neither my card reader nor my camera's cable.

I do believe its more than 25 years old, but would really like to verify its authenticity.

popped some questions on talkbass.com, you can read the thread here.

It's been a while hasn't it?

Well, today I discovered the wonders of an effects loop.
Having read about it on the web for a long time, I decided to try it out today.

Also, I wanted to try out my new pedal; a Rocktron Short TImer. Essentially a digital delay pedal.
Got it on sale from www.music123.com. I've been quite impressed with it. Altho, there is this irritating POP sound when engaging the pedal.
I'm wondering if it's caused by a static buildup on the stomp switch. I'm gonna be opening it up to take a look at its guts.

Also, I will be modding my fart-like Boss DS-1. It just doesn't have that nice bell like tone and instead has this wierd farting noise that comes out of it when cranked up.

Stay tuned also for a GAS list...

she maketh for good music When you gonna give it to me, give it to me.
It is just a matter of time Sharona
Is it just destiny, destiny?
Or is it just a game in my mind, Sharona?
Never gonna stop, give it up.
Such a dirty mind. Always get it up for the touch
of the younger kind. My my my i yi woo. M M M My Sharona...

i declare that this song just rocks
and has the most understated but rocking solo guitar bit!

25 years on.. and its still making waves.

excuse me while i set it to play on loop.

Don't know what you got till it's gone
Don't know what it is I did so wrong
Now I know what I got
It's just this song
And it ain't easy to get back
Takes so long

Falling Away [Apr. 5th, 2006|11:18 am]
[Current Mood |draineddrained]
[Current Music |The Fray]

Something I've done that I can't outrun
Maybe you should wait maybe you should run
But there's something you've said that can't be undone

And you fall away from your past
But It's following you

lyrically beautiful, wonderful arrangments.

angsty. happy music.

layered piano lines over gutsy guitars.

The Fray
