Shortnin’ Bread
Key of G

A very close rendition to the way Earl played it with a few Charlie Cushman licks thrown in for good measure.

Adjusting Speed & Pitch with Quicktime

November 22nd, 2006

Note: If you are using Internet Explorer 6 or 7 you may need to right-click the file and select “Save Target As…”

Note: You must first download the videos from this site and then open them in Quicktime in order to slow them down.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Quicktime one of its best features is the ability to alter both audio and video speed as well as pitch. Just go to the Window menu and select: “Show A/V Controls” (Command+K on Mac or Ctrl+K on PC). Then you can slow down the file without effecting the pitch or if you’re out of tune with a file you can tweak the pitch until you are in tune (This is an invaluable feature when playing along to old recordings especially when the band is tuned up a half step). Or if you find some of the videos on this site painfully slow then you can speed them up to your liking.

Quinoa: The Perfect Food

April 27th, 2006

As of today I officially have a new favorite food. It’s called Quinoa and it’s a bit difficult to describe. As you can see the flowering plant looks a bit like a cross-pollination of corn and the chronic. Sort of a cross between a seed and a grain that to me has a “corn-ish” taste. Described by many to be a super-food or dare I say the perfect food because of it’s nutritional content.

Regardless of what it is or what’s in it I highly recommend it if you’re burnt out on rice, bulgar, corn or oats.

Ray Boys Rain Down On Nashville

April 1st, 2006

Neil & Chase are N.V.T.S. = Nuts!

“It’s 106 miles to Chicago. We’ve got a full tank of gas and half a pack of cigarettes. It’s dark and we’re wearing sunglasses. Hit it”.

Six Degrees of Jerry Garcia?

March 27th, 2006

Now I know we’re all familiar with the game “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” but it turns out this formula works in the musical world as well. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Jerry and because of that I don’t recall exactly how I stumbled across the Grateful Dead Family Discography website but its there that I found a thin thread that links me to Jerry; It goes something like this:

Jerry played in the band “Old & In The Way” with Peter Rowan.
Peter Rowan played Mandola on the “Farmer Not So John” album “Receiver”.
I too played on the “Receiver” album, pedal steel as I recall but this listing gives me credit for playing pedal and lap steel. Considering the fact that I’ve never owned a lap steel I’m pretty sure I only played pedal steel. The lap steel they’re talking about would have most certainly been played by Richard McLaurin.

So technically I guess I’m less than six degrees from Jerry. Depending on how you count it seems closer to three and a half.
