    I go in search of the SUPER MOON-----
    Walking back into times
    of teenage
    trouble------streets paved with gold------rich man streets--------

    Tudors------Moderns-------many sad evergreens

    There is the field where I first smoked
    The house I played my first power chord
    A BIG-DIG where one New Year's Eve-----I drank until 4-------

    had to rise at 7--------to wash dishes-----unhappy father----

    "You are one dumb 17 year old-----have fun last night?????????"----

    driving----fogged----to the cove-----scrubbing the seafood------hung over------

    33 years ago---------



    I stop ---look into the hedges---remembering the spiral staircase that led to the "drinking loft"

    Joe Future Cop-he of the three totaled cars---------

    "Tim, why leave???????We have hours more -----of!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    Joe is now 50-as I am-his face scarred as a boxer with no jab-----have not seen him in 16 years---

    I listen to my Walkman----no---my---------Mp4 player-----------I wish it was a cassette player------

    I'm in a Blackmore mood-the hedges--------the mist--------------

    I push play-Rising Force-Malmsteen comes on-the album before Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow--------there is magic in this machine----Yng+Blackmore---------------on my turntable many times in the 80's

    I walk into the moonless night------------the clouds hide my future


    not my past

    I imagined, when I saw your thread title, that I was being reminded to go outside and look at the super moon....

    And I did so: it was nice. Rainy tonight but Selene was not coy. No 'moonless night' here.

    Then when I read the post, I was reminded of another time: I was once 17 years old (and thick).
    ___
    Back to celestial wonders... my wife alerted me earlier that tonight was being touted a great night for Leonids.
    I like Leonids - but I did not see any action tonight. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe next year.
    __

    I should ask members here about Leonids: some members get good photos. But I don't know whether the best times to see them are the same in every location.
    ___

    I was thinking about moaning like a child tonight because you posted something without giving me another avenue (or LINK) into your appreciation of Link Wray.

    But it doesn't even matter any more: every time I see your posts a little part of me registers 'AND Link Wray - there's a thing, better remember that...'

    Meanwhile, I'm thinking about Lonnie Mack now. I'm not sure why but I'm putting most of the blame for that on you Fezz.
    You are evidently a strong chap, so I expect that you can cope with this weight.

    You have, as always, my kindest wishes.

    Tubes, Lonnie and Link go together. Pure R+R guitar. I was lucky enough to see both of them live. Most guitarists over-play,very few can get away with this. Link and Lonnie understood the importance of air.Here is my song = a tribute to Link Wray-Zipgun61/Link Wray. The drummer went mad six months later? Surf music is a strong drug.

    Thanks for the links Fezz.
    I needed that tonight.

    Now, about your drummer going mad... I hope it was not because you consistently deprived him of a bass player.

    Just saying: your clip looked like it was from a big-ish venue - large stage, but not enough band. Somebody missing.

    Seems to me that a drummer and guitar player don't easily, alone, make a centre of gravity. (Well, Hendrix and Mitchell could do that - but that's an exceptional combination.)

    Do you ever get a chance to make up a fuller band?
    I can imagine a few ensembles in which your type of playing would sound great.

    Here are three, just to show that I have given it some thought:

    1. Drums and bass are very hooked in together and groove well: guitar is thinking about all kinds of blues and country, surf and swamp.

    2. Drums and bass are very hooked in together and there are keys too. And then there's you.
    I can't say too much about this one: the field is wide.

    3. Drums and bass and horns.
    I think you would play great in a band with horns. As you said, it's good when a guitar player leaves space.
    Now, thinking... thinking.... ... in your clip you played repeating figures - but moved them around a bit against the beat.
    Horn players understand that well. For one thing people want the horns to restrict themselves to playing repeating figures, and in unison.
    It seems to me that to a lot of arrangers the horns are mere pawns. I wonder whether they get annoyed about that... But never mind that right now.
    The point is: you evidently also know how to make music by having a focus on a clear melodic figure.
    And to my thinking it often sounds great when a guitar player gets into the horn section.

    I had in my mind something from Cornell Dupree from the 90s to illustrate this last point very well ---- but now I can't find any version of it on the webs.
    Why would the webs let me down in such a shambles?

    Weeeeeellll it's late and I'm tired. Best to not think about that too much.

    Sure enough.
    I developed a desire to hear Fezz playing in a group that's a really good fit for him.

    Then I had energy to think about it a bit more.
    Never mind Fantasy Football - what about Fantasy Fezz?

    Cheers Fezz.
    Listened to the first clip all the way.

    It reminds me of my youth.

    Going on to the second clip..... It's not capturing my attention in a trap - such are the vicissitudes ....

    T, the two "duo" bands were stop-gaps. I need a bassist to mess with.
