Hey all, just putting this in a different thread than my other music because it's different. It's a video. I hope that passes the new thread reason scrutiny.
Anyway, as some of you might (or might not) know, I've had a hell of a time trying to record any live instruments with audio quality that I can actually live with. So I decided to go with the next best thing.
Included here is a video link (I used youtube, yep) to me playing along with myself. I've played these things by myself at one time or another, but all the fills are different - so I guess it's semi-improvised.
What makes this special, you ask? Well, as good a question as that is, the answer is even BETTER. That's right, BETTER. Better is a six letter word. Delay is not a six letter word, but sometimes they're synonymous, like right now. I'm playing along with a full 4-second delay, and since I'm playing at 120bpm that means - you guessed it - I'm playing all of the fills over what I played 2 measures ago! It's really pretty great. Except that you have to listen to everything twice.
Well, it's not that great, but it does make for some interesting fills and transitions and a few sloppy moments (but we all love it sloppy cause we're punks, right?)
So enjoy and please give me les comments (which is French for "comments").
Well, try it anyway.
