OH man I HATED bosses buzz-words and phrases. Some still give me nightmares. 

OM45GE - Posted - 02/11/2017:  05:37:35


They seem to make things up that are more complicated than what they're talking about. We call our bonuses "Individual Value Renumeration". Why the hell not just call it a bonus?

DeanT - Posted - 02/11/2017:  07:22:13


Renumeration doesn't even pass a spell check....

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/11/2017:  08:00:31


Truck drivers are called "Commodities Relocation Technicians"

But remuneration does.  smiley

They use "IVR" anyway. 

DeanT - Posted - 02/11/2017:  11:32:45


I never heard the word remuneration ever in my life until now.

See, stick around the BHO and you never know what you might learn.

DeanT - Posted - 02/11/2017:  14:43:27


What else do I not know in my short existence on this planet? 

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/11/2017:  19:26:38


Do you know the opening chord to "A Hard Day's Night"?

DeanT - Posted - 02/11/2017:  19:43:22


Never have and probably never will!

OM45GE - Posted - 02/12/2017:  05:04:59


George said it was an F With an added high G. There was also a piano track and Paul played a D on the bass. Who knows what else they added in. You need a 12 string to get it right. 

DeanT - Posted - 02/12/2017:  06:30:07


I had a nice Yamaha 12 string. I sold it to our rhythm guitar player. She used it for awhile, but got tired of tuning it. So it's been in the closet for many years. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/12/2017:  06:49:13


One of my first guitars was an EKO 12 string. I loved the big sound.

OM45GE - Posted - 02/12/2017:  12:27:34


I've never owned a 12 string. Maybe it's time. 

dmiller - Posted - 02/12/2017:  16:33:11


My first Martin was a 1960's something D-12-35 with the Rosewood sides, and 3 piece back.  I bought it because it was a Martin, but it really didn't fit "bluegrass", so I sold it to a gal back in Indiana who was into the folk music scene of the time (early 1970's).  The guitar was perfect for that. About 15 or 20 years later - - I got a phone call from her (how the hell she got my phone number is STILL a mystery to me) wanting to know if I was interested in buying it back?



She had gotten married/ was living in Chicago/ and her husband had GAS (Guitar Acquisition Syndrome), and they needed to sell the Martin D-12-35 to get another guitar he really wanted, so she called me thinking I might be interested in getting it back.  They were asking about 550 or 600 bucks (if I recollect correct), but I didn't have the money, and I had "outgrown" the 12 string by then.  I should have done what I could to get it back, given what it was and ignored the fact that it didn't "fit bluegrass".  Live and learn, eh??



(edited to add - - - )



Mine looked identical to this one. I shoulda got it back.   sad

For a long time, I had mine strung with only 6 strings, and did a LOT of my early learning on it. Nice wide fretboard that way, and sounded great. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/12/2017:  17:58:26


Yeah, I eventually took the extra strings off mine too. I wanted to fingerpick and I couldn't get the double strings both ringing consistently. I bought a Martin D18 soon after.

OM45GE - Posted - 02/13/2017:  03:55:35


I've played 12 strings from time to time but was never moved to buy one. 

DeanT - Posted - 02/13/2017:  10:11:07


Our rhythm guitar player really made it sound good... but hated tuning it, and keeping it tuned

OM45GE - Posted - 02/13/2017:  10:36:20


Maybe that was why I wasn't interested. Even when I play rhythm I pick runs and they get muddled with the different pitches of the strings. Maybe if I just strummed along I would like it more.

DeanT - Posted - 02/13/2017:  17:11:32


Our rhythm player is a total strummer, no fancy stuff. Super solid thogh

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/13/2017:  17:14:59


I like a good hard core solid rhythm player. I can play better, like floating on his drive.

DeanT - Posted - 02/13/2017:  18:20:43


I totally suck at strumming. Partly why I went to finger picking right from the start.

OM45GE - Posted - 02/14/2017:  10:28:48


I started out playing bass so I tend to try and include a bass line even when I'm playing rhythm, alternating bass, walkdowns, etc.

DeanT - Posted - 02/14/2017:  16:18:46


I'm the opposite! I started jamming with friends right from the start. We always had a bass player or two, so I hardly ever used the bass string on my guitar. When I read about Keaf playing his Tele with only 5 strings, tuned open G, that's what I did... for 20 years. 

OM45GE - Posted - 02/15/2017:  02:37:27


It's great how many different paths musicians take. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/15/2017:  05:15:06


I never learned any lead guitar stuff until a lot later ,,even then pretty limited blues licks.

DeanT - Posted - 02/15/2017:  10:16:11


pentatonic scale is all I "officially" know for leads. But since going to banjo, I do most of my leads based on chords and inversions

OM45GE - Posted - 02/15/2017:  12:38:29


Really good lead guitar players are amazing. I get by but I know my limitations. 

DeanT - Posted - 02/16/2017:  06:12:15


I never really understood why banjo folks call leads.... breaks.

OM45GE - Posted - 02/16/2017:  14:14:32


I've always thought they were "solos", but you're right, banjo players do call them break don't they.

DeanT - Posted - 02/16/2017:  14:39:22


That's ok, banjo folks are weird anyways... they call bends... "chokes"surprise

OM45GE - Posted - 02/16/2017:  14:47:34


It is a unique community

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/16/2017:  16:51:32


Yah, and that weird short 5th string....

DeanT - Posted - 02/16/2017:  17:16:53


and crazy pointing backwards tuners

OM45GE - Posted - 02/16/2017:  18:49:15


And a drum head. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/16/2017:  18:59:37


But can turn a calm audience into raucous nutbars

DeanT - Posted - 02/16/2017:  19:03:28


I swear I never want to play Wagon Wheel ever again...

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/16/2017:  19:35:54


I used to have to play Duelig Banjos every gig..,I got so sick of it. Last week at a jam a guitar player asked if I knew it and wanted to play it. So I did,,it was ok,,I hadn't played it in 30 yrs.


Edited by - chuckv97 on 02/16/2017 19:36:28

DeanT - Posted - 02/17/2017:  02:45:56


We still play Dueling banjos quite often. One place we go to always wants Beer Barrel Polka...

OM45GE - Posted - 02/17/2017:  13:56:14


I usually get asked to play somewhere else. 

DeanT - Posted - 02/17/2017:  15:16:26


you need to write some lyrics for that

OM45GE - Posted - 02/18/2017:  04:10:01


LOL. I'll work on that.



Maybe it's my singing. One of my band mates used to quote Leo Kotke when he said I had a voice like a goose fart on a muggy day. cool

OM45GE - Posted - 02/18/2017:  04:11:47


I had to edit the last post because my autocorrect changed "Kotke" to "Kotex".  LMAO 😂 

DeanT - Posted - 02/18/2017:  06:05:45


There's a name I hadn't heard for a long time. Leo Kotke was my brother's favorite 

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/18/2017:  07:43:25


He could really play. I read where he got his unique sound by muting strings after he played them with other fingers of his right hand,,to get that note separation. At high speed that's very difficult.

DeanT - Posted - 02/18/2017:  14:55:54


Maybe I'll have to give him a listen... it's been almost 40 years since my brother wore out his album

OM45GE - Posted - 02/18/2017:  16:43:25


He's an amazing guitarist. I've seen him several times and he always astounds. 

DeanT - Posted - 02/18/2017:  19:03:59


didn't he play a 12 string?
