Thanks Andy!
;)

Hey Andy, you permit i call you Andy? What the news about the beginner contest BTW, got no news since.
Keep on Swirling and thanks for the tutorial and the search info BTW.

Everything goes out tomorrow, provided I'm feeling better. I have it all boxed and ready :) I had a few monetary issues that prevented sending them out, but thanks to the Gov. sending me a check today, I can afford it :)

I sincerely hope you guys like the stuff....
I know, but the pedal i built does not boost...it just increases volume!

"Passion will not wait. The tragedy in the lives of great men often lies not in their conflict with the times and the baseness of their fellow men, but rather in their inability to postpone their work for a year or two. They cannot wait"

Nietzsche on patience

With this new found passion I cannot wait!!!!   :D

thanks to dragonfly for the contest and for taking it upon himself to drop the coin for shipping the stuff to everybody :icon_wink:

No, nothings been "lost in the mail". Its just been one thing after another for me, be it surgery, family things, or moving. Everything is in a box, separated into packages. I'll send the stuff when I can, but it will have to happen once I'm unpacked and caught up on things. I'm sorry about the delay.

Ok, here's the joke but i'm better in french:

Hotel guy:  OK, that completes your check in, your room is # 124, right down the hall.

Musician: Thanks, it's nice to have a night off and just relax for a change. I'll think I'll have a nice dinner, glass of wine, and go somewhere to hear someone else play for a change. Do you have any jazz clubs in this town?

Hotel guy:  Well we happen to have an excellent restaurant right here in the hotel and tonight is jazz night in our lounge.

Musician: Wow! I wonder if I would know anyone in the band?

Hotel guy:  Well, I know the pianist's name is Oscar Peterson.

Musician: Wow! "The" Oscar Peterson?

Hotel guy: Well, not "The" Oscar Peterson, but he happens to play piano and he is a local player who we think very highly of.

Musician:  Well, I'll give him a listen.

Hotel guy: And I think the bass player's name is Ray Brown.

Musician: Wow! "The" Ray Brown?

Hotel guy: Well, not "THE" Ray Brown, but his name is Raymond Brown and he happens to also play bass.

Musician: Well, I'll check him out.

Hotel guy: The drummer's name is Louis Bellson.

Musician::  Wow!.......... (you know the drill by now)

Hotel guy: And the horn player is Kenny G.

Musician: WOW, "THE" Kenny G?

Hotel guy: I'm afraid so !


LOL! That sir, requires a reposte (or an Amen)!
http://www.richardthompson-music.com/audio/I_Agree_With_Pat_Metheny.mp3
I Agree With Pat Metheny, by Richard Thompson

I agree with Pat Metheny
Kenny's talents are too teeny
He deserves the crap he's going to get
'Overdubbed himself on Louis
What a musical chop suey
Raised his head above the parapet

Now Louis Armstrong was the king
He practically invented swing
Hero of the twentieth century
'Did duets with many a fella
"Fatha" Hines, Bing, Hoagy, Ella
Strange he never thought of Kenny G

A meeting of great minds, how nice
Like Einstein and Sporty Spice
Digitally fused in an abortion
Oh, Kenny fans will doubtless rave
While Satchmo turns inside his grave
Soprano man's bit off more than his portion

Brainless pentatonic riffs
Display our Kenny's arcane gifts
But we don't care, his charms are so beguiling
He does play sharp, but let's be fair
He has such lovely crinkly hair
We hardly notice, we're too busy smiling

How does he hold those notes so long?
He must be a genius. Wrong!
He just has the mindlessness to do it
He makes Britney sound like scat
If this is jazz I'll eat my hat
An idle threat, I'll never have to chew it

So next time you're in a rendezvous
And Kenny's sound comes wafting through
Don't just wince, eliminate the cause
Rip the tape right off the muzak
Pull the plug, or steal a fuse, Jack
The whole room will drown you in applause

Yes, Kenny G has gone too far
The gloves are off, it's time to spar
Grab your hunting rifle, strap your Colt on
It's open season on our Ken
Yet I await the moment when
We lay off him and start on Michael Bolton

Oh, I agree with Pat Metheny
Kenny's talents are too teeny

It's been 9 months now. Unfortunately I can only assume the prizes will not be rewarded. SORRY GUYS.

They will...its just been too expensive to ship with moving and all. Each box will be at least $20 to ship, but thats my own fault for opening things up to international people.

Apologies. Obviously I try to do what I can for the forum, including contributions, sending out some smaller free stuff, etc...but its not right of me to have opened up the contest entries to international entrants and not deliver the stuff.
