GSP #27: The podcast is the top of the funnel

Getcha Some Productions Podcast Episode 27 ( A podcast covering all things related to music production: from the first note to the last fan and everything in between. Our mission is to create music and to inspire others to do the same. Not your typical podcast, 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. This is an archive of our progress or lack thereof. This podcast is always candid and unrehearsed. In this episode we discuss: You deserve a toy. Everyone deserves a toy once in a while. Dan’s personal Musical update is The Beastie Boys. He’s been getting back into The Beastie Boys lately. He can remember walking around the suburbs of Boston as a youth singing the words to Paul Revere line by line. My personal update is that I have a guitar teacher now. I took my first guitar lesson in probably over 20 years very recently. His name is Jordan Klemons. ( ( ( I posted a question in a bunch of guitar related Facebook groups asking about whether anyone uses the Ionian mode within a modal song framework or context. The short answer is no, the Ionian mode generally defines tonal harmony and embodies the sound of it so it does not lend itself easily to a modal approach. That was the answer I received. I went to the hive mind and I received informational anaphylaxis. But, Jordan came back with an answer that actually didn’t answer my question but was somewhat mine blowing. He sent me a video of himself talking about how people don’t hear major seventh chords correctly. I’ll try to post a link to the video But essentially he says that the tonic note of a major seventh chord is actually retention note from melodic perspective. And then he demonstrates this. And it blew my mind so I had to take a lesson with it. Now we’re doing ongoing license. ( I discussed with Dan the fact that I had done the interview with Max Christopher without him due to some concerns about getting the technology figured out but also due to scheduling and also just due to the expediency of it all. But, I’m hoping that we can do a lot more interviews now that we have broken the seal so to speak. We discussed Jollyship the Whiz-Bang. We weren’t sure if we were actually going to discuss it on this podcast or not but it was super epic. I think that’s what we’re up to in the musical history and superhero origin story of Dan. We talked about how we covered the song Come Sail Away by Stix on a booze cruise party boat in the Hudson river. Then we talked about how we covered Surrender by Cheap Trick. Memoirs of reformed musical pirates. Support group for those who have been been traumatized by puppets. The real reason I wanted to get down on the phone for a podcast was just to tell him that both Kevin Raczka and Jesse Wallace wanted to make beats for our project. Some undetermined musical project. I pitched them initially on making beats for jam tracks and they were down but I don’t see why they wouldn’t make beats for any project we wanted to do. And also, our old friend Raja Azar wants to do something as well. So this is just kind of the podcast of good news. And Kevin is a Grammy nominee for his part in Antibalas, a band he’s been in since we’ve known him so probably for 20 about years. I wanted to restate our modus operandi in that the Podcast is kind of like the top of the funnel for us. Our conversations are like putting the ideas into the...
