I heard the guantlet hit the ground

A few days ago, Harvey linked over to Eric because he (Eric, not Harvey) finally filled a standing request for some guitar playing. I didn't comment on it at the time, just due to the fact that I was incapable of doing the same thing. I was having (as they say) "technical difficulties". Three microphones and a new sound card later, I finally have my reply.

Which I cannot upload, because it's too frickin' big. Darn. It looks like Pixy has things set up so that after a few attempts to upload a file that's too large, his server just refuses the request, so I'll have to see what I can do to get you a little piece of my rebuttal to Eric.

Sorry about the tease.

***Update*** Although the file is still too big for Pixy's server, _Jon now has it in his inbox. Throughout this whole debacle, I was looking at the "kb" at the end of the number indicating file size, and my brain was converting it to an "mb". (Go ahead and laugh, but you know you've done this yourself.) I call this phenomenon "Elephantitus of the Sound File". It sure made me feel like a dummy.

I run my own server - here at the house.
Size is unlimited. I've done a lot of music work for a friend (
Send me the an e-mail and I will send you my private e-mail, which has no file limit size.
Then I'll ftp it to my lookingGlass server and send you a link.

I've sent a message to _Jon, so we'll see what he can do. All I have is my yahoo email, and the file is frickin' huge, even in MP3 (In your face Eric, or should I say "WAV boy". :^) ).

I'm sure we'll come up with something though, so stay tuned sports fans.

Harvey: "Muddy Closet"? I was thinking "Slow blind howlin' Extremist". :^)

Evrybody point at me and do a "Nelson Munce style" Ha Ha. For some reason, I was thinking that the KB size of the file was MB. Problem is averted, and _Jon has just been sent the file.

Yeesh I'm an idiot sometimes.

... wav. boy?... damn, John... you wound me, man... still, I haven't heard your comments on MY song yet... what gives, bud?.. give us a hint of what song you're gonna be playing!!!

Same one I played when you asked me to "Play and sing something for me" the first time I came over. Just the first verse and the chorus though, I didn't want to get too crazy. :)

Of course I enjoyed your tune. Much as I hate to admit it, you're a better guitar player than I am. I believe it was your rendition of "Nobody knows you" by Clapton, right?

Your posting that, is what prompted me to break down and buy the new sound card. A Soundblaster Live that I got for 32 bucks at Wally-World. I recommend it highly if you don't have anything better. The "wav editor" program allows you to take the recording and just save it as an MP3. It's pretty sweet.
