happy birthday… birthweek… me.

a few days back… this week… whatever.

this’ll mark… what is obvious in
so-called “real time”… the latest
name-change. _open_a_vein_ was the
name of yet-another-blog from july ’09
until today. “owen’s cooking show”?
if you know a *better* name, GOTO it.

more will be revealed.
in plans begin disappointments.
“proverbs of hell”.

meanwhile, for all i know, all the action…
if any (effendi)… is over in, whatevah,

more four-string guitar

Posted by vlorbik on May 25, 2011

new soundcloud upload: 3 bass hit (one treble).

with a quasi-standard tuning;
lower the 2, 3, and 4 strings
by an octave (as it were;
actually one substitutes
lower strings on the easy-
-to-reach part of the neck
usually used for higher ones
to get this effect); the result
is the “usual” fingerings apply
but they *sound* different
(and are harder to play; the
thickness of the strings
comes into play here).

i’ve had the three basses tuned
in true-usual tuning… so as to have
the E, A, and D strings acting as
themselves but easier to reach
because close to the highstring-side
of the neck. and then the high E, also tuned
as itself. probably three blind mice
was done in that tuning.

of course the electric’s got all six.

i’ve finally learned how to upload “garage band” tracks.
here’s my “soundcloud” page.

i’m posting a lot in MEZB, btw.
updates might get more frequent here but
don’t count on it. music stuff will probably
end up in the livingston review.

Unsolicited Testimonial

James Allen’s ScribTeX just… works. You shove in TeX code and click and out pops a webpage with your typeset pages.

Probably I’ll be moving the math stuff back to Vlorbik On Math Ed. Now that I know how to… you know… post math on the web and all. Geez.
