opportunity knocks

Published:

Last night I was invited to put a song on a local compilation CD of area artists. They have a concert at it's release with all the local bands.

Since I record all of my stuff in the basement without a band, I was not too sure, but they offered to take the main band and learn the other parts to whatever song I contribute... it's never too late with music! It would make it much easier to find a bassist and drummer with a song published (nobody really takes middle aged punks serious, hard to find musicians in their mid 30's looking to play punk music.)

The caveat... I must have the song written, tracked and mixed before 1/1/2005.  I don't have to master it, they will have that done (one less headache)... this could be my one unexpected shot to get back into the music scene without doing everything on my own... he he he... This comp is not like some, where you must pay to be on it... it's the real deal... by invitation... I am honored. So many years have passed since my bar band guitar hero days...

Since free time is a luxury here, I will halt all current system developments and use my mostly automated system to keep in the powerball, but that's it for the next month or so. I could never stay away from the LP, but visits will be less frequent. I have to wait until I see who wins the election to decide how hardcore to go with the song, but I MUST begin writing in earnest by wednesday... Drums are a pain to program...

Good luck PB players! keep the ball rollin ;-)
