In class this morning, ah, I've pretty much checked out for the day already, there's all kinds of things that need to be done, and school and more homework is towards the bottom of the list. Whadduhyoudo in a situation like this? On to other things.....June Come Fast!!!
There's no band practice this week, Paul and his family are heading to North Carolina to do something...I think he's tried to explain it a few times, but many things with Paul start and stay in the realm of the ABSTRACT. I get a kick out of him trying to articulate (in words) the sounds he wants to hear in the band. We'll be practicing, and words like "hollow", "open", and "you know what I'm sayin'" are frequently used, but rearely understood.
Paul: "Jon, what I'm hearing is something a little more ringy and open."
Jon: "Ok, so what do you want me to do?"
Paul: "Leave it a little more open."
Jon: "OK, got it" (not really)
Paul: "Do you know what I'm sayin?"
Jon: "Kind of, but not really"
Paul: "Just do some of the stuff you were doing before, but let it hang a little"
Jon: "alright, I'll hang a little in the verse??? Then hammer it in the chorus?"
It's this kind of dialogue that makes it so fun!!
It's comic relief, I love it!
Tuesday, instead of practice, Matt and I will be heading to Changs!!!
And by the way...............
What do the following words have in common?
Ahhh, more food on the mind!
