Throughout my career, I've always had projects, gigs, etc. coming up. Some things are more or less ongoing, but I like to wrap things up and put a bow on it now and then. As a composer, that's the gig in a nutshell. As a blues improvisor, there have been some cool projects, gigs, and the time a Chicago blues singer sang some tunes in my dining room (getting her stamp of approval is a high point of my life: "You don't play like a professor.") My pain and moderate paralysis in the legs led me to give up the blues trio that I had for 4-5 years. But I've kept practicing, learning, experimenting, etc., at least as much as a distraction from pain as anything. I'm getting some good feeling in my playing and want to sort of take a snapshot of where my music is right now. I'll do it in my attic studio on a Pro Tools system with backing tracks. Boy, do I have a lot of backing tracks. How many tracks? Don't see the point to a CD, but I'd be interested in hearing about how people organize their collection of tracks. I'd like to have variety in terms of general style (Howlin Wolf vs T-Bone vs Otis Rush, etc. Major, minor, fast, medium, slow, Chicago style, Texas, California, swampy, rock and rollabilly, standards, original, backing band instrumentation, etc.) I could go crazy with the sonic aspect, but it's not necessary. Epi Dot, Strat, Epi LP Custom w/P-90s and CC. Quinn SDQ (ODS type), Victoria 35310, and Cornell Romany Pro. U-47 clone, Earthworks, a ribbon or two, and SM-57s. Many other aspects to consider, but I'll start with these. This is purely for fun, both the project and this thread. Any notions that you'd recommend I seriously consider?
