underhill

I am in a band called underhill and we are heavily influenced by the Grateful Dead. We play mostly originals and are from the Chattanooga, TN area. You can check us out at myspace.com/underhill or our website which is coming soon at underhilllive.com.

hmmm...speaking of victimless crimes...

well, bubble bubble bubble, that's a very interesting subject you raise there. There certainly are a lot of victimless acts that are labelled as crimes. And one might speculate as to their true criminality since they are victimless. Kinda thought that the phrase "witchy hairs ripping one" had an overtone of self-deprecating humor to it relating to old age and flatulance...oh well...jus' like walkin' on glass man, gotta take each step real slow and careful like...nah, life's too short!

At least shameless self-promotion is a victimless crime

hey all, saw a note on the Dead Net Central Jam in Tampa, if you're in the area it will be a great time & I highly recommend it, many of the participants are musicians from the Musicians' Lounge on DNC. I'm hoping to hit a future such event, but we have a local gig next weekend.

My band is Ghost Pilot, we opened at one of the Dead Net Central Jam shows in Chicago last Sep, you can hear our stuff at ghostpilot.com & myspace.com/ghostpilot, we play around the area for the most part, originals, eclectic covers like Echoes, Zappa's Flower Punk, b-side cuts from the Clash, Talking Heads, etc.

my little plug

I'm not a band, just a solo singer/songwriter, though I play almost all the instruments on my recordings (except drums).

My new album, Playing Life by Ear, is available from the myspace page, the website, and iTunes. So far it's the best representation of the music that has been in my head, and I'm sure there's some Dead influence in there since I was practically raised on their music and have been playing it for as long as I have been able to play anything.

I also sometimes play live solo acoustic and have slipped in some Dead tunes. But honestly I'm getting a little tired of playing solo. So if anyone in the greater Philly area is interested in getting together, just let me know.

Jerry's Guitar Solos

Hey everyone,

This is my first post and I must admit, I'm a bit nervous about looking foolish by posting in the wrong place or something. Anyways, I've been a fan of Garcia's brilliant guitar work (as I'm sure all of us are) since first learning to appreciate it. Over time, I've tried to emulate aspects of Jerry's musical expression by transcribing a few of his solos, right now I'm working on his solos from Franklin's Tower on the "One From the Vault" album (totally forgot what show that was from). Working Jerry's solos out has been by far one of the most difficult endeavors I've ever attempted musically, but it's so rewarding, and I'm sure a few of my fellow guitarists on here could probably handle the challenge with much greater ease. While considering this a few weeks ago, I thought of Charlie Parker's Omni Book, in which about 60 of his solos are transcribed. I think we could probably do the same for Jerry's solos, though considering the over 15,000 recorded hours we have of Jerry's guitar work, the project would be much larger than just a book. Originally I had the idea of putting a giant website together devoted to this task of cataloging transcriptions of Jerry's solos. Before even beginning however, I wanted the feedback of other heads out there, in many ways I wanted your approval, as I'm not sure how Jerry himself would've greeted the idea. Let me know what you all think and whether any of you would be interested in helping out.

Greetings from Canada

It's my first post here - how's it goin'?
Just thought I'd chime in about the band thing. Isn't the interent neat?
My band's at www.reverbnation/thepowergoats.com. I'm the 'frontman' I guess you could say. Our stuff is currently free to download. It's rock - Stonesy stuff since we used to be a cover group. I'm hoping, as we jam more, to get longer, looser stuff happening - but this is what we've got for now.

Thanks!
Jamie
