The Road Ahead.

Was Watching A Michael Lydon  Video earlier , What got me started with Music ( See below) he Quotes Bob Dylan,'' Those that aren't busy Living are Busy Dieing'' . For some reason it lead me to want to share a post I made in a Guitar Forum explaining why I don't play my guitar all the time and Why performing isn't the main objective for me that said I am now starting to think about Joining Starting a band ,so never say never.

Philip I have been messing about with it for an hour and it is very much like logic it gels with Amplitube very well and has a really nice graphic interface I think a half day of familiarisation and I'll be good to go it is amazingly economical on CPU
useage   and it will be interesting to see what the recording reproduction quality is Like.

Jorge the technical aspects of recording music and the production side of internet broadcasting for community based Blog broadcasting   is something of a passion of mine. I posted this in the Home Recording and tutorials section as others might find this programme helpful.

I love to play guitar and enjoy it very much this technical stuff  is the basis of my ongoing plan to make  a sustainable  Business here in Sweden My areas of interest on the technical side are Digital Signal Processing, Midi Based Hexaphonic Guitar Pickup conversion and Modeling , Recording projects services and editing. Johannas Cousins Husband Shaw does something in the same field although I have been developing a Web based Business plan for the past 5 years waiting for the critical mass of computing power to be net worked Sweden is very advanced both in terms of Broadband infrastructure and Hardware in the hands of a viable consumer base. So  things like reaper are amazingly exciting for me as it brings very powerful production tools within every ones budget  which gives the synergy across online communities to collaborate and interface on creative projects using Video and sound not soley for Music and the Arts although to me that is important but not at a business level.

My other interests are Alternative Energy particularly Nikola Telsas ideas on electromagnatism.  my  researches in both Pick up technology , Tube and transistor amplifiers and Digital System Processing have all been very helpful
in my Energy interests\study\research My guitar Hobby\obsession is not limited to playing, I  also enjoy writing both Music and Lyrics which again does not  revolve around a performance aspect to my own interest. I have very little interest in performing personally I am however very interested in recording and  videoing live performance and facilitating self help tutorial based learning for cooperative communities for all sorts of technical skills involved with and used  in  sustainability and ecological  projects.
I have been developing a business plan for producing Bio Diesel from industrial hemp and looking at cooperative models for Hemp and Bio diesel electricity generation for a component based
community energy project with bio diesel back up generation as a adjunct to wind, photo voltaic, geo thermal, water turbine according to geographic propensities.
Fuel cells and batteries are obviously fields which again there are cross disciplinary synergies between Music Computers and Energy projects. Other cooperative ventures with complimentary by product industries growing out of the core economic base of the Energy project are all linking back and the technical side of Music all help and are portable knowledge sets for application in the other fields.
It might seem a stretch to get from
Reaper recording software to Bio diesel and a suggestion of why don't you play your guitar Roger?
I'm not sure if the above answers the question  but
in short I get as much out of thinking about music and its technical side as I do from physically doing it
and performance  competency on the guitar is not a priority for me I am happy to get to where ever I end up in that direction organically over time.

This is one of the most inspiring videos I have ever seen its linked from the War on Want Web Site which is how I originally found it but it is from here that I re found it to post here, It literally made me cry the first time I saw it for the first time in several years,tears of Hope

 And heres my post regarding Michael Lydon andhisJazz Book,The Dylan quote  and His Jass blues Waiting for Godot.


[quote="Roger"]Thought I'd do a Music Book Reveiw thread I'll call it Six Swinging Strings. Michael Lydons Book is the best introduction to Jazz and more formal theory at an accessible level he writes beautifully and engages  the reader from the first lines and he is a great guy to boot.

I love this  Jazz Blues too The Bass is great and Elen on Piano is a real treat.


Michaels Interview on Memories of Rolling Stone Magazine filmed in 2007 before the crash I'm guessing.Its interesting how much things have slid back since those optomistic words.Itstime for us all to re discover some of the Idealism,Radicalism and enthusiasm for new and progressive ideas set in a 21st Century Context and thats what this Blog is about.

Bio Diesel From Hemp Oil.

Revolving  Doors to Corporate Fascist World Governement. Say No Today and from now on.
