Would love to hear a your version of Nights in White Satin. The Moody Blues were one of the first more progressive type bands I started to listen to and always have a soft spot for them.

Carp or muskie?

Wear a painter's cap (available at Goodwill too).

Can we get some pics of the lodge & you on the scaffolding? Have you really been up there for 3 months? laugh

That's a tough choice, Hunky. I absolutely LOVE "Nights in White Satin," but I'm always eager to hear new arrangements by you. It's a win-win situation, I guess!

I always used to hear those lyrics as "Knights in White Satin" and I could never figure out why they were wearing satin.

Me too!!! It took forever before I realized that it wasn't "knights." Actually, I still kind of hear it that way! :p

Kinda spoilt it for me when I found out it was "Nights" . . always thought the song had a gothic feel to it. Like a Robin Hood atmosphere; just needed Kate Beckinsale to improve the visuals . . .

Thank goodness for Goodwill and disposable clothes! [I just bought a stack of brand new T-shirts for 30 cents each].

Anyway, I got three tunes ready [To Zanarkand, Nights in White Satin, and Color my World] I'm not sure yet which one I will perform because I'm a little sick of all of them right now. I'll probably go with the 'Color my World' tune though as I've already submitted the other two in the past some place.

And I know this is the recital thread but I'm still thinking of Cheryl and all her birthday lobster and shrimp. [Here in Arizona we have fresh lizard, rattlesnake, and cactus]. I want some fresh lobster. Just a taste!


I chose To Zanarkand myself. Might be nice to hear both of our versions. I skipped the 4 bars near the end though, as, while I could play it, I couldn't play it well enough yet(imo) so I am submitting a shortened version of the song.

Carp or muskie? Tongue and Linseed oil

Wear a painter's cap (available at Goodwill too). I don't ever wear hats as I get headaches from them. Plus I have a blockhead so they don't fit well.

Well it seems that way anyway. Occasionally I come down for potty breaks and food but that's about it. Oh, and these pics were taken last week during a large managed fire just behind us so we had the lovely combo of inhaling fishy oil and smoke to choke on all day.

Mrs. Hunky helped high up on the front while I worked the back.

Btw, on the rear pic, it may look like the three sets of scaffolding are upside down with a stepladder ratchet strapped on top of it all, but it's just an illusion I assure you. I would personally never do that even if I was short a set of scaffolding and was too cheap to buy another set as it's just not safe!

earlofmar, happy birthday my friend. As Jotur said over a year ago...'I'm glad you joined' too!

Casinitaly Nothing really compared to those high school dances [and everything that goes along with them :), hehe!] so if I can rekindle some of those dance floor memories for you I'd be happy too.

Thanks Mr SH, I am glad I found such a lovely place as well.

My my that's one big job you got on your hands there. Make me feel real wimpish for putting off painting our little box we call home.

You can simplify it a bit instead of shortening the song; just play the chords from the first playthrough instead of the crazy 16ths/triplets/32nds.

Yeah I could, but I basically just cut the song to 2 minutes rather than running through essentially the same portion twice (since the song basically repeats the first minute and a half). I just took the ending and shoved it on the first playthrough. When I can finally play it reliably, I would like to do the whole thing. Think I have had enough of To Zanarkand for now :p, if that's possible.

God, I've had to edit out spelling mistakes 4 times in this post. I was just learning Suteki Da Ne, and it's really doing a number on my fingers right now.

THAT is some log cabin . . . .the logs aren`t even split down the middle! At least you'll have something substantial to fix your shelves onto . . . .I imagine the piano would sound different in such an environment. I don`t have a reverb setting on mine which says "log cabin (enormous)" . . . whome

Spending 30 minutes searching through 'call for submission' thread creation times and waking up early has paid dividends.

After skipping two recitals, I feel I really should participate again. Got a piece ready, but 30+ takes later still no decent recording. Keep coming up with creative and unique ways to misplay the thing.
