Mike Viola â?? Doing It The Wrong Way
Just to qualify the above... as much as I love the songs I've listed; I want to create new music. I'd love to find that wonderful juxtaposition of two jangly guitars, vox with great harmonies, a sparse and smart drummer and a bass player who plays with melody, all wrapped up in a blanket of a beautiful B3 and piano.
For me itâ??s all about the songs. Just great songs played well by a great band that has jelled, and confidently works as a unit.
Since age matters to some peopleâ?¦I'm 56.. have good vintage gear (Fender Twin, Marshalls, Strat, Les Paul, Tele, Gretsch),
....and an unerring belief that "really good" is just a short leap from "just good enough", so why not make the damn effort to find that place where the song literally plays itself... the results can be magical...
