Saturday in the Park
Greetings from bassplayer Pete -
Today is a beautiful day...actually for all I know the smog could be right over us here in most-of-the-time sunny Hollywood...but I don't know because we are stuck inside working. Well..I'm not working..Ryan and I are watching a bootleg of "Six Feet Under: Season 4" If you haven't gotten into this show yet...I suggest you do...it has consumed me...it has given me a whole other life. So anyway...we are getting caught up for the final season...season 5, which starts on June 6, which also just happens to be the day I turn 25...wow I'm old.
So onto the things you guys really care about...how modern day politics so closely resemble the ways of the ancient Mayan civilations in Japas, Mexico...what? The studio is coming along quite nicely. Sean started laying down some strings this week and all I can say is STOKED! He brought in a couple of vintage violins he got a hold of so he could work on tone differentials. And by vintage I mean...well let's just say I used a '74 P-bass for most of my tracks...that's 1974...which is vintage..Sean has a '81 violin...that's 1581....and it sounds like the heavens above are summoning my soul to come rejoice with them. He also ventured into pedal-effect land. I won't tell you exactly what...but he pretty much turned his violin parts into something Satriani would play...he's a bad-ass! Oh, and Joe Satriani ain't too shabby either.
Well that's all I got for you for now. I will check in later. I still advise that you stay away from any authority figures in uniform..they aren't there to help...they are there to give you a hard time...but do listen to your parents and peers...they love you.
