Re: Instruments



I don´t know about you all but I love to play the weird odd meter stuff, and
to hell with accents on the up beat and such........if you can keep it
straight you ain´t playin´  music baby!! I could come up with a nasty drum
track and then we could go from there, or nate could give me a guitar lick
or riff or full tune.... we could get this done. It may have trickey
logistics, but it is possible. I would love to do this really. We could make
a real simple easy song and just have fun.
4/4 time, the usual  verse chorus bridge refrain verse verse chorus deal.
Maybe add a solo for naters to strut with and we´ll be in ........

or maybe a 6/8 snazzy tune with a 12/8 chorus? Hell even 5/4 would be
cool.... think about it peoples..
