GSP #18: Our collaboration grade this week?  FAIL!

Getcha Some Productions Podcast Episode 18 ( A podcast covering all things related to music production: from the first note to the last fan and everything in between. Not your typical “how-to” podcast: For a new listeners, each episode is a live business meeting. We are figuring out how to build a music production company (a media empire) as we go and listeners come along for the ride. Every podcast is a business meeting, every business meeting is a podcast. This podcast is (always) candid and unrehearsed. In this episode we discuss: We spend a lot of time talking about my practice routine. We also spend a lot of time talking about pick up preferences on guitars. If I had to give a grade on our collaboration this week it would be a fail We are live and ready to strive! That is exactly why I am not a good rapper. I want to bring Perry nice back to life but his last on my list. And my list is very long. I’ve decided not to have alter egos any more mostly because it’s embarrassing. I was going to call my band perry nice and soul control but another band took the name soul control. Then I was going to name it Perry nice and love junk. Unfortunately, love junk makes me think of stuff. Dan bought a fender American professional jazz bass recently. Dan plugged in his base to garage band was playing through headphones and he loves the tone of it. In the old style bases, you used to have to turn your neck pick off all the way off to get the bridge pick up sound but in this new circuitry you can just dial the neck pick up down a little bit and you get that nice jazz bass bridge pick up sound. That was Dan’s weekly musical update. I don’t really have a particular new update this week except that I continue to practice scales to keep my chops up along with my tailor-made jam tracks. I have built these jam tracks to go with a practice routine that I do on a regular basis. It is my musical maintenance. I’m kind of using music therapeutically right now. I have been so busy at work lately and also working all hours due to the quarantine and the lack of separation between work and home life. So are use 10 minute breaks to play skills as a meditative and therapeutic break to recharge myself so that I can go back to work. I talk a little bit about my new Harley Benton guitar which is not really even knew at this point. But I bring it up because I had been using the humbucking pick ups for so long because I hate the buzz of single coil’s. However, I think I have finally come to my senses and that I have started using the single coil’s because they just sound better than the humbucking pick ups are reserved for when I really just want to kick up the game in a little bit if I’m really into a shredding mood otherwise I’m used to single coil’s all the time. Now we move on to talk about our experience with garage band. We were trying to share files within garage band using the share file functionality within the app but it wasn’t working. For some reason we’re having trouble sharing our fall project file and we’re only able to share the balanced down wav files. Which is really not the end of the world anyway. But that’s our experience so far. Dan gives us a grade of failure this week in our attempt to Collaborate at a distance. Dan has some feedback which is very important and good information as usual. He really thrives on collaborating with songwriters. So, he likes to be involved in the arrangement of a song and putting his bass line to a song or writing a baseline around a song specifically. Not just jamming to Jam tracks and improvising and such. I start talking about my concept of use the whole Buffalo. I start talking about the fact that I’ve produced these jam tracks for the Getcha Some Guitar Brands. And, the concept of “use-the-whole-buffalo” leads directly to the idea that since I’ve already made these jam tracks, they...
