Couldn't get it to play or download. Is this a Mac issue? It said "Error creating tmp file".

 

Certainly it must include:

 

Smoke On the Water (guitar)

Stairway To Heaven (G)

Heart and Soul (piano)

That annoying thing where you roll your knuckles on the black keys and play in F# and then Ebm over and over and over...

Wipe Out (drums)

This dbl post wasn't my fault. There was an error screen that said I the forum volume was too high and I should back up and try again in 10 seconds. Or something like that.

 

so there

Great! we must have spent some time in the same guitar center. I'll swear I think some people practice that stuff just so they can play at the store - music store chops. :P

Oh yeah. Thanks. Eric answered that for me earlier and I forgot to take it down. I just did.

Yep. Music store chops. I make sure to never play anything recognizable when I go into a music store. I'm sure the people who work there hear the same stuff played again and again.

As they say in my country, "HA!"

 

Had it been a possible Windows issue, no doubt I'd have been in there suggesting you buy a Mac. :D

 

'Nuff said, let's not hijack this into another endless PC vs. Mac discussion/rant.

 

Probably my ISP. Any suggestions?

Sorry, just got sick of the "Get a Mac" stupidity on the board and thought I would post some of my own stupidity :)

 

It's an .mp3 if you follow through to the download page so that shouldn't be a problem...maybe a browser plugin problem?

I played in blues band for a while and we worked up a number called, "Saturday Afternoon in the Music Store." I would tell the audience about going to a music store on a Saturday and hearing the various things.

 

"First, I visited the drum room." - Our drummer would play the groove from "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover"

 

"Then, I walked by the basses." - Bass player plays the opening to the theme song from Barney Miller.

 

"Then, I visited the keyboards." - I play the opnening to "Green Onions."

 

"Of course, there is a section of guitars." The guitar player plays "Funk 49."

 

"I then stood in the middle of the store. Of course, it sounded like this." We all played our various parts at the same time with no regards to time or the other players.

 

If I do say so myself, it was pretty funny.

In the keyboard room dude, you totally missed "The Entertainer" "Chopsticks", "The Knuckle Song" and of course "Heart and Soul" unless I completely zonked out there. Oh and the Peanuts theme (badly).

 

Also needed - "Damnit" by Blink 182

Any Tool song on Bass

"The Final Countdown"

"Runnin with the Devil" on bass

 

 

I'll have more for you soon. Some of these are before my time I think. Not that I don't know the songs, just never heard em in a music store.

 

OH! Add some phat beatz for the keyboard room at Guitar Center. Make sure they're coming from a keyboard I want to play too, and make sure they go on for 2 hours so I never get to sit down with that board....

Good additions there Dick (some repeats that others said -- just mentioning so they know I saw their post too). I should add those. Perhaps I will.

This makes me long for the days when the "salesmen" in the music store would pass out headphones and/or controlled the volume by asking offenders to turn down. Also, they would not let one person tie up a board for 2 hours working on their demo. :cool:
