I am a big fan of Music Memoirs. Last I read they were taking a Holiday Hiatus. Makes sense...I was wondering this morning about the hiatus. I receive email updates for this blog and I have not gotten one in a long time. I decided to go visit and I missed about two weeks worth of stuff! Not sure what happened!
So my first Music Memoir of 2010 starts now!
Tuesday Tunes: Week 116
Let's do something silly and fun this week:Build your own band:
What instrument would you play if you were in a band (or do play)? I would play guitar (rhythm) and sing. I filled in singing (only) for a friends band for some time and it was a lot of fun.
If you could have any artists in your band, who would they be? and why did you pick them. Jim Adkins. He is a lyrical genius. Plus he's pretty darn cute so if our little band ever got bored or had writers block I could just make him stand somewhere and look pretty for entertainment. OR
Matt Bellamy, since he can jam out a piano like no other, writes the most beautiful lyrics, has an AmAZiNg voice and when he plays guitar I am stupefied (this reminds me of Harry Potter..sorry I digress). Anyone who consistently writes great lyrics and has a talent for great guitar riffs that are infectious would be what I would want for my band. I really admire folks with this talent.
What type of music would you play? It's hard to target this..I guess the technical term would be like Indie rock/alternative rock. The songs I write/have written went from Hard core alternative to mellow as of late. Perhaps I will post one some day for you all to take a listen :)Thanks for reading...play along in the comments if you'd like :)
