thanks. i always start when i play and keep messing around. I think Theresa
was the only person in the room who knew that about me anyway. the rack had
two delays, a fixed wah (III+) and boost pedal.
but i think i'll bring an edp next time to play some of my more, ehhumm,
legitimate looping sounds. but i will still be tweaking like a mo'fo.
I actually had a great time yesterday. this was the first time i had played
out in over a year and long overdue for me. i plan on getting there earlier
next week. Both Tom and Stv were really cool and accomidating. I hope to
to hear more of you next week. were/are you also playing there wed.?
as to my performance, i was somewhere else, i'm usually a little more
coaxing when it comes to my sonic approach, but i was all jazzed up from
chai and the talk with you, et al. I was just grinning and playing that it
really felt about a minute had only lapsed when i stepped down. for me
that's a good sign, so i was really happy to have some folks hear some of
the music i create.

man, he was alright. Citizen Peter or something along those lines. he was
all sound on, very aggresive.
>It was also great to meet fellow LD members, including the legendary>Dr
T. - come back and join with us in looping next week in the Far
yeah sure was. Dr. T is really cool also, very down with sound.
