A Question For Wheat

Wheat,

What is the purpose of the red asterisk [sic] next to the thread titles? I noticed that on the Chuck Rainey thread and several others in the past. Is it an alert about a content change or edit?

Thanks,

BoH

Yeah. It shows that an item

Yeah. It shows that an item is new since the last time you logged in. In the case of the Chuck Rainey interview, I found the ALT tag for the photo was wrong, so I jumped in and changed it. None of the text of the interview was changed, though. But that's still a change as far as Drupal is concerned.

OoooTAY!

Thank you!

Have you got any work done on the tune?

I have just been listening over and over. I burnt it to CD so I can keep it in the car for my long drive to work. Hopefully, I can take a crack at recording next weekend.

I've done a little, but I'm

I've done a little, but I'm still not entirely happy with it and I haven't recorded anything. I had hoped to have it today, but I'll probably get something this week.

I hear some of the chords a little differently than the way they're spelled out on the chart. We'll see how that goes.

Wheat, there are five instruments playing in the track. I'm not sure if all the instruments are religiously following the chords. In fact I'm almost sure that at least some of the instruments 'improv' around the chords. In addtition the melody is played on a 'detuned guitar' which changes the chord sounds to an extent.

I didn't follow the chords exactly for my bass line. I jammed around until I found a line that complimented the chord progression rather than followed it exactly.

I hope this helps. I think BiaB follows jazz rules of composition and because of that it can throw a curve ball or two. Still, I hope you all enjoy the challenge. Looking forward to hearing the other lines.

Oh, I'm digging it. I'm

Oh, I'm digging it. I'm glad I'm not crazy. I tried following the chart to the letter. But then I started following my ears instead. Often both line up together. Sometimes they don't. But that's cool as long as the line sound good, right?

Thanks for the encouragement!
