Hello Music Player Forumites!

As you may have noticed, there have been some more recent changes to this board. Nothing has gone away, but we’ve done a little restructuring, moved the magazine forums to the top, and added Editors’ Office forums for each magazine. These Editors’ Office forums are meant to be discussion areas for topics concerning the magazines’ content, and the magazine editors will be hanging out in these forums, live and in person, for up to an hour or more once a week to answer questions and take part in discussions about the magazines or anything else that may come up. Please keep in mind that the editors will be doing this during their regular work hours, so they may not be able to answer all questions or respond to all comments. Please be patient and polite.

All of the MP forums users and moderators have really proven to be a smart, helpful, fun-loving group, and the editors are looking forward to being a regular presence in this community.

Editors’ Weekly Office Hours (ALL TIMES U.S. / PACIFIC TIME):

Guitar Player:
Tuesdays at 11 a.m. – Art Thompson, GP Technical Editor
Tuesdays at 3 p.m. – Barry Cleveland, GP Associate Editor
Wednesdays at 11 a.m. – Jude Gold, GP Associate Editor
Thursdays at 11 a.m. – Darrin Fox, GP Associate Editor


NOTE: GP Editor in Chief Michael Molenda is constantly lurking in the forums and therefore was not scheduled with a specific time. If you’ve got a question or comment for Mike, just go ahead and post it; he’ll see it.

Bass Player:
Mondays at 2 p.m. – Bill Leigh, BP Editor in Chief
Tuesdays at 2 p.m. – Jonathan Herrera, BP Technical Editor
Wednesdays at 11 a.m. – Brian Fox, BP Assistant Editor
Thursdays at 11 a.m. – Greg Olwell, BP Assistant Editor

Keyboard:

Wednesdays at 2 p.m. – Ken Hughes, KB Technical Editor
Fridays at 10 a.m. – Ernie Rideout, KB Editor in Chief

All times are approximate and subject to change based on the editors’ schedules (which can include things like interviews, meetings and travel). Again, please bear in mind that editors may not be able to answer all questions or respond to all comments.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for the update. I was wondering if those were going to be internal forums.

The May issue asked if we put 3 (living or dead) keyboardists together in the studio, who would they be, what would the music sound like and what would you call the album.
I would have James Booker holding down the percussive bass and heavy rythyms on upright piano. Jimmy Smith rockin' the B-3 with tempo changes and dynamics while Chuck Leavell plays melodic interweaving riffs throughout. No bass player, but a syncopated drummer like Bill Bruford and a blues guitarist like Clapton.
It would sound like nothing you ever heard before and the album would be called "Lightning Never Strikes Twice". Imagine them doing Let It Grow, by the Dead!
