Waiting For Fagen

I’m up, with my ear to the universe again

listening and waiting for Fagen.

I stare at his latest portrait;

his graying stubble and well worn lines,

the wicked double waves of his protruding lips.



I study the backgrounds of his photographs;

try to make out the titles of the books on his shelves,

the tiny models of buildings, the ornate clock on his desk.

I pore over the precise way he holds his… Continue

This is a free d/l, you'll see 10 on the page and an archive, so it remains available forever, not "one day." A good kickstart for a brand new CD (and my first one).

THE VALUE OF A MENTOR

It occurs to me frequently that my practice sessions are quite chaotic; I think I may need a music "mentor", someone who has been down this path and knows the direction. Right now I feel directionless.

I worked on scales for about 45 minutes tonight, basicly just the Ionian scale, playing 6 different boxes up and down the neck, in 8ths and triplets. I don't know that there's any value in doing so, but I did it anyway because I lacked better ideas.

I also put down the…

Rory and Johnny

Had a fairly productive guitar lesson yesterday; worked on a couple of Rory Gallagher and Johnny Winter tunes, trying to emphasize the use of diads, particularly 3rd's and 6th's. I'm in the habit right now, when I play single note lines I tend to think horizontally (across the strings) wheras when I play diads I tend to think vertically (along the neck, same string set). This of course makes it difficult to relate one to the other, I'm hoping with enough work I can resolve this…

The Jazz Community

As I sit here and watch the faces come into this network one by one my heart smiles. I am in awe of what is happening here, the enthusiasm that I sense. The 'vibe' in this place is one that makes you feel connected. Many of you have written me to thank me for starting this Jazz Network. Me personally, I want to thank all of you for jumping on the bandwagon, realizing how cool a place this is for us, to share, meet, laugh, update, learn and most of all keep our friendships alive all around…

Sarah Seas

Written while listening to Sarah Vaughan sing, “In A Sentimental Mood.”



Sarah,

I see you

solely floating

on the surface of a song;

once an ocean,

now a universe.



You fill your lungs

then dive dangerously deep

into Music’s mysterium.



In this tête-à-tête with Breath,

you ceaselessly come up

with a mouthful of pearls,

which you eloquently

transform into priceless…

MY CREOLE BELLE

So yesterday did not get off to the blazing start I had hoped, but I sitll got a little bit accomplished. I was working with my multi-track (a Tascam 2488) that I sitll haven't really learned how to use; it took me half the night to figure out how to transfer songs to the computer via a USB link (rather than burning a CD as the instructions show).

I recorded a short version of a very simple Mississippi John Hurt tune, "Creole Belle". It's a simple 8 bar blues tune with a very simple…

EVERY JOURNEY HAS A BEGINNING

Greetings!

First, I'd like to thank Jaijai for setting up this wonderful site, it has a lot of potential.

In the spirit of community and music and so forth, I have resolved to keep a web log to document my musical progress. This allows me to start at day one!

So let me describe (for anyone who is interested) a little about what I'd like to accomplish. I'm an amateur blues guitarist. My wish has been to become as good a guitarist as I can without having to…

Music

A painting,
a puzzle,
a prayer.

A song,
a soul,
a shore.

A need,
a now,
a never.

A dream,
a death,
a door.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
