Hot for checkered wristbands...

by Chris Randall

Adam and I have this running gag where he says "the JD-800 is really cool" and I say "yeah, really cool for guitar solos" and then we talk about something else because we're not complete fucking retards.

Q.E.D., I guess.

Now if we could just screw some strap buttons in the sides of that bitch like a Poly 800, this dude would be set for life.

I've been thinking about selling my JD-800 lately. This might have just pushed me a good deal closer to doing so.

BTW, whyizzit that nobody plugs their mixer outs into their video camera when they shoot stuff like this? Did this guy want us to hear the keys clacking like that?

When exactly did Roland take a turn for the worse? Probably right around the SH-101...

damn... i just lost all respect for the jd800.

i remember buying a korg prophecy... it had guitar solo sounds out the ass... or should i say 'up the ass'. with the lamest distortion efx known to man.

I'll bet keyboard clinicians everywhere are saying, "I wish I'd thought of that."

>>whyizzit that nobody plugs their mixer outs into their video camera

I've wondered that too, about the camera mic versus plugging it in. Youtube already sounds like crap.

When I think about all the wonderful music that has been played on keyboards that is out of reach for me on guitar, this shit bums me out. When you have people like Jimmy Smith, Bill Evans, Art Tatum, Ahmad Jamal to draw on (chord voicings and rhythmic complexity that I can't even come close to), why the hell would you want to crib a wank guitar solo from a rock footnote?

If he plugged in his mixer to the camera, we wouldn't be able to hear him say such enlightening things as "Let's crank it up" and "All praise Van Halen. And Youtube."

Unless he also set up a mic, and then, god help us, he might be encouraged to sing. The Youtube M.O. of keytardedness is fine as it is without singing, don't you think?

Q : Why? A : Because We Can...

...tends not to be a very convincing excuse..

Whew. I'm glad he used those hand signals to show me where the crashes fall. I coulda missed 'em. That's some complicated shiz-nit, y'all!

BTW ? Fucktards should not be allowed to buy checkered wristbands from eBay.

I encountered a guy a couple times who would go to experimental music shows in portland, and do the stoned hippie jam version of that with a Triton. He quickly acquired the moniker "Triton, lord of the deep" in honor of his godawful taste in both romplers and music. (A triton is bad enough no matter who is playing it or what they are playing. Adding jamband "guitar" solos to the mix just takes it to a whole new level, though. He would noodle for like 25 minutes straight, too.)
