    The Forum Member Request Thread

    We have loads of talented members here. I'm betting that 99% of you play way better than me.

    So, I'm calling you out one at a time.


    First up is Les. You don't have a video camera.
    Fine.
    You don't hit 'record' unless there is a purchase order in front of you.
    Fine.

    How about linking to a youtube vid or recording of stuff that is already finished and paid for, then? ...like the Ford F-150 commercial you mentioned in post #7 in this thread: New-HX-DA-in-the-house

    I'm not trying to put you on the spot (well, I really am), we want to hear you brother!

    Spotlight on Les please.....

    I want to hear Les's stuff too. I was just always too shy to ask...
    Love for all human beings is like listening to any kind of music. You just don't care.

    So...what's taking you so long?



    PS...for the record....his website's demonstration of the tones they create for commercials was very impressive when I watched it a few weeks ago.

    Me too...I've made demo videos on youtube special for him. I've shown him the difference between the Parallel and Series wiring for the HXDA. I've exposed my lack of talent for him and all the world to see. And, I've been the butt of his comments forever.

    He owes me!!!

    BTW....to Ruger in the OP....never mentioned it before, but your video of you playing "Aqualung" in the first "story collaboration" thread....was what inspired me to learn the song. I had listened to it for nearly 40 years...and never bothered to learn to play it; so consider yourself my personal muse with regard to that tune, Bill. Thanks!

    Thanks, Doc. I can't (won't) tell how many takes it took before I was willing to post!

    Hey, I just opened this thread for the first time, and I see there's a request.

    Some of my stuff is on the website, including the Ford thing. Just watch the video and you'll get an idea of what we do.

    www.elfxi.com

    Ads, son, we do ads. Yessir.

    The listen pages have some of my stuff, some of my partner's stuff, too. It's all mish-mashed together, so if you don't like something, it's not mine.

    Heheh.

    Ya know, compared to making real records and the stuff my son does, it's just a buncha ads. Not much to get excited about.

    Actually, the guitar playing isn't as important as writing the stuff to picture. Making a living in music is a lot easier if you are the copyright owner.

    A good chunk of my work is performed on keys and bass also.

    I'm so old I had time to learn to play a few instruments. It sure went by fast, though!

    And thanks for the kind words, my friends. Without you I'd probably go nuts!

    but it's such a nice lawn Mr. Omatic, it would be such a shame to not let other kids play on it and bask in it's wonderfulness!
