I thought as much. It is a great microphone and really cheap. The only other microphone i'd get for the same money would be a Shure SM58. Great for gigging but there's some nice condenser microphones if you're doing recording

Thinking of music video concepts for a few of my original songs. Any ideas for video ideas? Think Victor Wooten, atmospheric solo bass stuff. It's a limited market i know but I enjoy playing it.

Saw the game but missed the halftime show. HOw was it?

Mon., Feb. 2, 2015 - 10:04 AM


It was the weirdest visual show i think i've seen in a long while. Musically it was great and the mix of tracks she did was so well composed. It's probably on youtube now though. The game was just as weird, the last play was just crazy.

I wish people won't give gigs to musicians solely based on their appearance or gender. If it's for a tribute or production show and you need a female/male musician that's fine as it fits the part but i seem to be hearing about it more and more every week where musicians are given gigs for their appearance.

I'm thinking of releasing something for free every day in December till Christmas via my Facebook page. Obviously everything will be music related (songs, sheet music, free lessons, free articles, etc…) what do you personally think would be a good idea to release? It could be original songs, cover songs, articles on equipment, reviews on instruments etc...
