I am just a guy who loves to play his trumpet. I'm not a great musician, but I am trying to be. I also play bass a little bit. I love this site, too.

A Poem

I read a pretty cool poem today. It went;

So much depends

a red wheel

glazed with rain

beside the white

     -William Carlos Williams

Well I do have quite a few thoughts about my project, but I'm not actually ready to do anything yet.

First off, the body shape. I've always loved Ibanez's Iceman body shape. I'm probably gonna go with that, but I am still always open to suggestions. I don't want anything too wild, but I definitely don't want the standard jazz bass look.

Pickups. That's harder. I've done some research, and I think I understand most of it. I'm thinking about a rather simple wiring here.

Yup. very simple. I don't see a need for a cap, all it does is the "tone" control and it does almost nothing on the bass I have now. I figure the independently controlled humbuckers will give me all the tone control I need.

The Project

The project is all-new!

OK so I just wanted to 'yell' a few adjectives. But I've decided to use my blog to tell you about a project I have just decided to undertake. I am going to build my own custom bass guitar. Funding is rather low, so progress will be slow, but it WILL go forward. As yet, I have been unable to obtain any materials due to nobody wanting to sell them on ebay. But I'll get there. The plan thus far is this;
-wood body (wood type undetermined, not that important anyway)
- left handed (cause that's the way I roll)
- 5 strings ( I want to add the lower end to my playing)
- fretless (cause it's really cool. Do I need another reason?)

That's all I've decided on so far. As far as pickups, finishes, and bridge types, etc. that will come eventually.

I've decided that I've got enough skill with a jigsaw and router to cut out my own body and electronic cavities. I don't make any major mistakes, and the minor ones that I do can be sanded away. However, necks are WAY too advanced for me, so I'll be buying one of those. I'd screw it up real bad if I tried to make one of those myself.
Updates will come whenever there is anything new to say.

So, now you know what's going on. Suggestions, questions, comments?

This isn't all that important but, I was wondering if anyone had a, erm **cough cough** copy **cough** of some version of Macromedia flash. I would really like to experiment with flash animation.

Cheers, mates

FL prob

December 9th, 2007 + 5:12 PM  ·  Oldies324

Alright so.

Everytime I get more than like, 3 notes going at the same time, even if it's three different instruments on three different patterns, when FL plays it there is a WHOLE BUNCH of fuzzy, buzzy, white-noise pops and stuff!
You know, the sound you get when you turn the amp to 10 and thrash away.
I can hardly hear the music.

Does anyone know why this is?

Eh. There are certainly harder ones to start with.
I like that this has notation. I hate trying to figure everything out by TAB.

I have a question!

How do you play mp3s in FL6?
I've got an mp3 track I want to add drums to.
