#1399938 Daemon9623 Tribute Collaboration - Goonies 2 Theme

Posted by VikingGuitar on Today, 07:09 AM

First tracks I've ever recorded with a Flying V  B)

Aren't they great?  I love the upper fret access.  Plus, you know, they just look fucking awesome.

I'm not quite sure how "indictment" is used in this context.  That usually refers to a situation where there's no arrest, but a grand jury is convened and charges are brought against a person in that manner.  You usually see that more in corporate settings.  In this case, it might just be a misstatement about how charges have actually been brought, but that's still confusing since she's been in custody this whole time, which couldn't have been possible without an arraignment, where charges are officially brought and the defendant submits a plea.  

 

This is different than what I'm used to, but I suspect it's progress, albeit expected progress.  We knew charges would be filed.  In fact, I thought they already had.  Sam might have more detailed info, but this seems like a necessary-and-expect step.

  • This is intended to be a fairly straight cover, so No Wrong Notes.  Play the Right Notes only, please. 
  •  ...unless you don't want to. If you improvise around the song, or play a solo, I'll still try to incorporate it. 

Recorded some leads this morning, and wanted to let you know that I am 100% using slides, pinch harmonics, extra-wide vibrato, and all that other stuff.

Just wanted to pop in and tell you all that you're great people and I'm glad you're in my life.  That is all.  CARRY ON.

In case anyone is thinking "they'll probably get a ton of guitar parts, so I don't need to do any": so far, I've only received two people playing electric guitar, and I'm craving more.

You'll get mine in a few days.  I have rhythm parts for the whole song and will likely get leads recorded as well.

I sometimes wonder why people watch this show. I've seen two episodes.

 

Am I missing something?

Well.

This probably goes without saying, but I recommend avoiding any comments on any of the news posts (from the news sites, from FB, from anywhere else you'll come across them.)  It's doing nothing but getting me all spun up again.

I just want to offer some words of potential caution.  I'm all for being character witnesses, both in the court of public opinion and in the actual court.  However, please be careful with what you are sending to the news or to the prosecution.  Or just generally making public.  Someone might take something that you think to be overwhelmingly positive and twist it negatively.  You know what we mean, but someone else might not, especially when a post is stripped of all context.

 

Moreover, in general, I hesitate to draw too much attention to TheShizz.org.  Some of us have lived over 15 years of our lives on this board.  We've grown, we've changed.  We've had our petty feuds and our reconciliations.  And it's all here, ready for someone to find it.  I don't want some stray comment from 10 years ago like "I was so mad, I could have killed him" (I don't know that there is such a post, but you get the idea) to suddenly show up on the evening news or as Defense Exhibit B.  "The victim's parents claim that he was a pacifist who wouldn't hurt a fly, AND YET--!"  This kind of stupidity happens on social media all the time, and although it's entirely disgusting, it's also entirely possible.

 

Think of the cowboy picture.  Or Melon.jpg.  Or anything that he might have posted in the Shake Up thread.  Point being, be careful.  I don't know how likely it is that anyone will come looking here, but I'm also a bit nervous about drawing too much attention.

 

Sam, the Neon Orange Knight

I'm just going to bump this (as fresh as it is) because it's super important.

 

The job of the defense attorneys is to do EVERYTHING (legally) that they can do to defend their client.

 

I'm not saying that they're smarter than we are, but they are likely good at what they do, which is find supporting evidence to help their client.  That includes taking seemingly straight-forward facts and presenting them in a light that is beneficial to them.  I know we all want to help Sean, but the last thing we want to do is be responsible for something that ends up getting used against him.  My strong advice is to err on the side of caution with everything.

I am not going to be able to make it, but if there's anything I can do or anyone needs a bit of help getting there, let me know.  Also, if anyone will be near Pittsburgh and needs a place to stay for a night or just wants to grab a drink, I'm totally down.

Posted by VikingGuitar on 25 April 2019 - 09:10 AM

Friends, I have the time and the means to be able to go, but I am still a newcomer here and I have no desire to intrude on anyone else’s grief, even if the dude was someone who became important to me rather quickly. So, if there is someone who wants to go to the memorial but cannot, I would rather support that with the money I would otherwise spend for myself. Please get in touch if you need to.

Dude, you are 100% shizz, 100% welcome, and 100% an amazing human being.
