Secrets from another source

Post by Sam Gamgee » Thu Feb 17, 2005 10:25 pm

Guess what I'm listening to right at this moment?

(No, SuperTed, not Neal Morse singing.) I happen to be listening to a a very special unheard track sent to me just special by a certain Mayor.

See, as it turns out, all you guitar players and pianists and electric kazooists just didn't pick a very useful instrument at which to excel. It's really rather difficult to find an instrument that Steve and Fred not particularly good at, but that they would still actually want to use for a song.

Enter The Recorder.

I've been telling people for years what a great and beautiful instrument it is, and I finally got my vindication when Steve called me the other day...

Too bad none of you can hear it for a year or so. :twisted:

(you're right, Steve, this is really fun! ;))

Yeah, I know, Fred, but that doesn't count because you play everything and a half. ;) (That's why I said "particularly" good at.) Actually, who knows if I'm really that much better anyway, but I'm not complaining!!! :lol: at the very least I've got a lot more time to kill learning those chromatic skips.

Glass Hammer - so addictive it should be available on a program!

"I only listen to the odd track...I can stop anytime I want and listen to Magma or Lawnmower Deth or, or...anyone!

Where's my Shadowlands CD? I need it NOW (drool!)..." :P

I heard about this person who got addicted to Glass Hammer, so they put her on Spock's Beard to try and wean her off, but she got addicted to that too...

Best news I've heard all day! Of course I may want to wait a long time for an album played entirely on recorders :wink:
And now for something completly different...

Mrs Quincey's guide to Proper Etiquette:

Dear Mrs Quincey,

I'm a top class recorder player. Glass Hammer has asked me to lay down some tracks for them. The only problem is, they're covering a Spock's Beard track.

What should I do?

Yours

Concerned Hobbit

:lol: ROFL, everyone! OK, ok, fine! You win! If I tell you more about the track, will you stop reminding me of Neal Morse?

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Ok, so here's the deal. This is going to be on the second disc, the one about the Lady of Shalott, and the track I'm doing is actually only a section of one song about her being tempted. It starts out all nice and pretty with a medieval dance kind of style (and I think I hear a crumhorn! yay!), with some medieval instrument (what is that anyway, Steve?) playing its little thing, then I come in second time around with harmony. As the song goes on, it starts to get more creepy, and I do a lot of strange chromatic skips... And then it fades off suddenly on a weird note, with a little rattlesnakey noise in the background. And then starts a freaking awesome choral section that sounds really spooky (think something like Van Helsing or the Ringwraith theme) - but I don't have that part of the track since I'm not doing anthying on it. :( The only part I heard was over the phone, which was a little difficult to hear, but I know that it rocked. :mrgreen: (I got that right, though, Steve? Are they the same track, or was that the different one?)

Ok, that's all I know. Or at least that's all I know that I'm allowed to tell you. :twisted:

Being the band's number one fan does have its advantages, eh?

Truly, this is the last word in coolness. Way to go, Samwise.
