Look at who is playing at your local casino or arena, is it Duran Duran? Heart? Hall and Oats? The Wh?? what do all these bands have in common? they've all been around for at least 30 or 40 years. It seems like most of the new performers don't use real musicians playing real music and who wants to pay $50 a seat to see someone kareoke? I've been playing about 30 years and I find I have a lot harder time finding bands to play with or create with. So, I'm wondering, is this just a phenomena here in dusty Ok or is this the case where you live? By the way the fact that I'm a wanna be jazz player (I've played country and I'd rather hang it up before I play it again!) doesn't make things any easier. I've been wondering about online music creation I have a small computer studio set up using a Focus Pro 40, are any of you into that? Can you give me pointers?
