Plug That ....! Current Projects:

So what are we all up to right now? I know some of us (Shannon, Aeolian, & MIA Donnie) are doing the full blown Rock Star Stuff, some of us (Chris & Drew) are doing the serious day job routine, and some of us (Wayne) are just out to lunch ( ).

So don't be shy, step up and tell us all about your current musical projects no matter how big or small (bedroom shredders welcome) with your seven stringers!

Working on a favorite song from your hero? Gigging the local watering hole? Beating Cancer (Regor)? Woodshedding? Writing? Recording? Schooling?

What's everyone doing now a days?

Work..School..Guitar..Girlfriend :p

Work is keeping me busy because in my department (I work electronics at target) there is just me and one other person so they have to split up the hours between us (opening shift and closing shift) or find someone to cover..

I want to make a band to but no one here plays sevens or is really into metal! damn christian hardcore music scene!

Coconut!!

Bedroom shredder here. Although I'm saving up to get a recording-rig (POD xt, DFH, new soundcard?, MIDI-keyboard).... Solitude in all honor, but getting your stuff down, and adding to it afterwards takes your playing to a new level. Not to mention, I'm looking for a drummer and a bassist to form a band with my friend who also plays guitar.

Well...

As most of you know, I'm teaching full time. I'm up to 16 regular students, with 3 occasionals, and I'm still looking for a few more. I love not having a day "job" (not that teaching can't be work, but it's almost like cheating )

Musically, well, I had been working on a prog-metal band, and things were going good, but then. Now I'm working on a concept album kind of thing with the singer we found. Well, heck, it's just easier for me to post this for those who are interested: Jake's musical updates

I don't want to abridge it and leave out details, but I don't feel like re-telling it all here

I've also decided I'm going to sell some of my stuff so I can add a Lexicon MPX-G2 to my rig.

I just joined Divison, bringing the total talent level of the band down a few notches. This is my first band that actually requires seven strings, so I'm still in learning curve mode, although I'm quickly getting to the point of wondering how I ever survived with only six strings.

I'll let eaeolian elaborate about the band status, after he tells Colonel Pogue who's side he's on.

Guess I should mention that I often run into colliding confrontations, being a Christian who listens to metal. Heh.

Solo CD in the works. \m/

ditto for Chris, actually, so there's hope for us 9-5'ers.

Check out my debut album, Zero Mantra, on iTunes!

Moved out of my parent's about a month ago to the city of dundee. Workin the telephone sales I get to phone up 300 people a shift trying to sell them things. On the plus side, it's done wonders for my telephone manner lol

Music wise, working on an EP for my band, get teh music out there and hopefully make a couple of quid if we're lucky. Got a small tour planned with some other local bands playing around scotland for next summer hopefully.

Hehe, I laugh too. But hey, I think there's no way to get talent out of listening to only Christian Music. While I don't endorse the song and it's meaning, it sure is a heck of a chop builder I figure as long as I only listen to it for musical value, it's all good

Organical is gearing up to play our first shows since March 2004. We've got a new bass player on board, and we have a drummer coming out for a session with us this weekend. We're hoping she's interested in joining, as she's one of the best drummers we've seen locally (other than our former drummer, of course), and we're all big fans.

I'm also gearing up to move to a new house in the beginning of November, where i'll actually have space to set up my gear and a dedicated space for playing and recording.

Well, I'm in a band, we play metal, and we recently lost our bassist (yet to be replaced) and aquired a second guitarist and a vocalist and the music is getting just that much better with the addition of people who bring in new ideas and are capable of writing good stuff...We're trying to get our .... together for a show on halloween at a club called fusion somewhere around Jacksonville...I'm also writing some instrumental stuff with a friend (anything from jazzy sounding stuff to metal) which we plan to eventually record.

I'm a bedroom guitarest and right now im working on some glass prison.

I kinda have a band but the drummer doesnt have a job so he has to beg his parents for octobans, cymbels, a gong, and all the great drumming stuff.

kinda have vocalist,another guitarist,keyboard dude, and bassist. we all just quit our jobs so we cant get anymore gear(other guitarist wants a LGM or a 8stringer).

I'm fixing guitars for the day job, then trying to get Oni up and running every other waking moment. Finished template designs, waiting for pricing from the laser place, and waiting for wood to arrive. Trying to come up with a better single string bridge design too. The ABM is good but not perfect. Pointers, Kevan??
I've been playing guitar a lot lately too, which is strange for me. New musical directions and inspirations I think. I'd like to make some music with a couple of guys I know but there's no time right now.

I'm currently catching up with emails, please be patient

I'm doing the 9-5 thing as well , STILL working on my new songs (I'm up to 22 total songs now) , still waiting on EKG to get my body to me so I can actually have a seven again and finish those songs , still dealing with the divorce , trying to put together a '90s rock cover band for fun , and generally bitching and moaning about eveything ! Good times . As far as my songs , right now I'm weeding through the .... , and trying to pick 10 or 12 to put on disc . The others will be demo'd and saved for the future . With my cover band project , I'm looking to do the standard "bar band" thing , playing Ratt , Motley Crue , Dokken , all that .... . I can't help it , I still like that stuff because it's fun to play . Oh yeah , I'm also trying to coordinate my possible move to Louisiana as well , which hopefully will happen early next year , AFTER Mardi Gras of course (yes , they are still having Mardi Gras in 2006. It's official .) . Looks like I got alot of .... going on when I list it all !! Damn .

If my answers frighten you then you should cease asking scary questions.
