A lot of these tone woods and/exotic woods are getting harder to source. True swamp ash, pale moon ebony, heck even straight ebony. There are a few luthiers using “Royal” ebony extensively. “Royal ebony” is marketing lingo for streaky ebony with lots of sap wood that would have been relegated to firewood 20yrs ago.

Signs of our times...

I believe I read somewhere that rosewood is now considered a "rare wood".

Kiesel refuses to export any guitars with rosewood construction. They just don’t want to deal with the onerous paperwork.

And lest anyone think it’s a global hoard of rabid guitarists causing the problem: https://e360.yale.edu/features/the-r...t-to-furniture

A truly amazing individual just turned me on to Sibelius First. She doesn’t actually play an instrument(I know, bear with me here) but she’s a TOTAL music theory nerd and can articulate theory better than I can. When she chooses to talk music I choose to listen.

Anyway, it’s free and very powerful.

https://www.avid.com/sibelius

My current writing process has morphed away from classic notation into a strange brew of tab, goofy shorthand, and daw recording. But this program might start nudging me toward my roots again

I thought it might be useful to the three of you so here ya go...

What little skill I once had in that dept has long since atrophied. But honestly? Although I for sure believe a solid grasp of notation can help an individual delve a little deeper, I refuse to believe it’s absolutely necessary. Great music can be created without classical notation imo.

But I think the Sibelius thing has a ton of potential, so I might try to knock off the dust a bit. At least in Cmaj.

I watched a video yesterday about the history of the guitar and what instruments led up to it. At one point, it was explained that tablature was actually used for centuries before guitar music notation was used. Interesting!

Here's the video. It's interesting to watch, regardless...

A couple of those sounded awful. And I don’t mean just to my western ears either lol

In other news, Neural DSP plug-ins 50% off until 4/19. If anyone has ever been curious, now’s a good time. Audition em for free and purchase the one or two that suit.

I have zero financial interest in these products, I just think they’re a pretty amazing bang for your buck

Focusing on improv lately because I’m not satisfied with mine. Revisiting the previously mentioned concept of playing over simple progressions I went a step further and have been improvising over simple single note drones. Tracked in the usual keys with a Roli seaboard preset on endless loop droning away.

Feels good. Enlightening too, particularly in a board navigation sense. Not knowing where the fuck I am in a progression is happening a little less often lately. But just a little less.

It'd be great to revisit BARF jams. Any other ideas for how we might do something online? Zoom is an option, though not sure how helpful it could be.

Yeah the sound quality alone would be terrible.

The zoom thing was more of a playful joke, really. But a real online collaboration is easy. I collab with a small handful of guys online now. All one needs is:
-the ability to small desk record(laptop, interface,daw)at home
-a free Dropbox acct
-an email addy

Record track(s), download to Dropbox, send em to the next guy. Fun!
