      Hey guys, as a performer and appreciator, I'd like to know some opinions on different battery groups. They don't have to be DCI, they could be college lines, or a high school line for that matter. I'd also like to know your reasoning behind why you like them so much.

      Also, for those who are interested MSU (Mississippi State) drumline has a website, with several free cadence/warmup downloads for your enjoyment. Videos too. They're a decent line, not too sloppy. Check the recordings out!

      Thanks.

      Today, the musician I recommend is possibly my favorite techno artist ever, Eiffel 65.
      Not just because I was listening to their song Blue when I was a kid. But because the guy can actually sing. And he can write some pretty cool songs.
      The words aren't just pointless either, like most techno.
      And of course, it's fun to dance to :P

      Last time, I mentioned Trace Bundy.
      Today, I mention a great metal combo band, Demons and Wizards.

      I don't know very much about the details behind this band, but if I understand correctly, it's a combination of the bands Iced Earth and Blind Guardian. They play very well together, and the vocal chorus is a great touch.
      Although I will admit, as a percussionist...their drummer could learn some more extensive dynamics :)
      Still, great sounding band, I highly recommend them.

      :D

      I'm BACK!
      It's been like six months or something, I don't even know, really.
      But I am back for good. I miss the community.

      I've quite World of Warcraft. The addiction was a bit too much.
      Instead, I am addicted to Call of Duty 4, and World at War.

      I thought about bringing back the Joke of the Day, but those got difficult.
      So I think I will have a recommended song/musician of the day.
      Today's recommended musician is Trace Bundy.
      I am currently listening to his song called Dueling Ninjas. I recommend watching him on youtube, to observe the way he plays guitar.
      I think a lot of people can appreciate his innovation and musicality.

      I suppose I ought to make like a good student and pretend I am practicing.
      It's good to be back, my friends. :)

      I'm at West Texas A&M now.
      It's NICE.
      :)
      Very busy though, as a music major.
      I love it though.

      It's been a while, wow.
      I really should get on here more, I miss all the people that watch me.

      I suppose since I haven't really been on that much, it's update time.
      I'm going to West Texas A&M University in the fall.
      What am I majoring in?
      Music education and composition, double major.
      I have 18 hours a week. LOL
      When I registered, the guy goes "uhh, I think you're going to get fisted by your schedule."
      I think he's absolutely right.
      Drumline starts the 15th of August. Warmups came to my door yesterday, and they're a JOKE.
      These warmups are easier than my high school warmups.
      Is that bad? I think so.
      But hey, it'll be alright. They have a really really good music program.

      I work at the Ambassador Hotel now.
      It's great. I work only a few nights a month. Basically, big companies and groups will book dinners in hotel's giant atrium, and it's always really formal.
      All I do is wait tables at the dinners.
      450 dollars per dinner.
      Noooot even kidding.
      And sometimes there will be 3 or 4 dinners a week.
      Each evening I work, it's only 4 hours at the most.
      This job is ballin'.
      I can even find a part-time job and work that during most days.
      At this point, I have enough saved up to pay for my first 2 and a half years of college.
      And my parents are paying for my rent, gas, food, and everything else.
      I fucking win.

      Anyway, that's about it. :D
      Good to be back!

      Heh, well, my mom wrecked her/my PC, and I have to go home to fix it.
      So, there's a good chance that the top will be zippered by Sunday.

      I'm not out of shape either, I'd probably consider myself pretty in-shape when compared to most people. I just wouldn't be able to bike to Texas. :P
      Haha, based on those reasons there's no reason not to try this.

      Hehe, I'm glad! I might be going home this weekend and if I do, I'm putting in the zipper. If that doesn't ruin the top *gasps*..... I'll post photos. :)
      Awwww.... cute.

      lol. I don't have COD4.
      I don't keep long when I have them. Since I work at a video game store, it only fits to trade them in and get more. lol

      I never had COD4 though.

      Right now I'm on Destromath.

      I've switched around to play with different people.
      I had a human lock that I dinged 80 right before I got banned. lol

      I don't usually play Alli, I just had an old friend with a gnome mage who wanted me to play.
      Bleh.

      I'm a Hordie all the way. :]

      And I'll add you as soon as I figure where my TV went. lol
      We move it around from room to room...I'm not sure why.

      And then my account got banned. -__-
      Illegal mod use.
      That's what I get for giving an bf my password and then dumping him. lol
      -head desk-

      I actually just rolled another Blood Elf the other day. I just dinged 27 last night but I haven't been doing much other than Arena lately.

      It takes up most of my gaming time.

      That is, until I get my new DSi and will be playing on that for a while.

      I need to get my XBL back to gold, and I'll play something with you...just not Halo. lmao

    • snipper_9217

      10 years ago

      Thats cool. If you have any recordings of it, you should send them to me. in an email or something.
      Thats true though, ususally people are best at writing music for their own instruments. I wish I could take a composition class.
      How many jazz bands are there at your school?
      Thanks, hopefully I get better at it. & I learn from trying a lot of different things. You don't know how to write until you've made good mistakes.
      I agree on the bari/sop thing. I love a mellow bari sound under a deep soprano sound. sounds so good. Some of the ideas I have from that are inspired by a few songs from the hornheads.
      I don't have too many recordings, but I have some videos on youtube. I do have a couple recordings from our jazz competition in chicago, and the song we played at the grand champ concert.
      I agree, sending long comments is so time consuming. Lol. I have facebook (but I don't use my msn or aim ever). I also have yahoo if you have that. If you go on facebook, just search Mariah Noelle Krueger, the profile pic is me in purple, then another one of my friends in red and black.

      I am definately interested in hearing any recordings of yours.
      Are those marimba solo pieces or do they have a solo that you're transcribing?

      I do a lot of different writing. I like to transcribe jazz saxophone solos. It takes me a while, but it helps with learning older, and new jazz techniques. I'm in a combo that about 20 (which really isn't a combo. lol.) of our high school students get professional gigs for. We play music that has horn parts, a lot of older music, some new. A lot of stevie wonder. (: So basically I do a lot of writing for that. Arranging the pieces as closely to the original as I can.
      Then I'm working on a couple duets. A soprano sax and trumpet duet, and soprano and bari sax duet. The bari/soprano should have some really cool contrast. So I'm excited to finish to see how they turn out.
      I can write more for woodwind instruments, but if I needed to write for brass (excluding trumpet and trombone) it'd probably take me a little longer. But I can do it.

    • snipper_9217

      Awesome! A music major. (: Talk about living the dream. lol. Music (actual music that is) is what I live for.
      If you'd like to talk, I'm definately up for it.
      Do you have any recordings of groups you've been in? If you don't mind I'd like to hear them.
