Ladies and gentlemen, It is with heavy heart that I recount to you this, my tale of musical woe! Our band have recently rented out a new practise room, which we share with another (German) band. The other band are relatively new to making music, but seem the be a very ambitious and determined lot. Anyway, I was in the room last week, jamming with our drummer, when I noticed some sheets of paper sitting on the music stand, which weren't there last time. Being the curious sort, I had a look, to see what the other band were working on. And that's when I got the shock of my (musical) life: This undiscovered bunch of complete new-comers have pulled off a musical miracle .... they have invented an 8th note !!!! Above the lyrics to their latest song, they had penned guitar chords and some bass tab, but the progression went (something like), G / G / C / D / G / G / C / H (rewind) H ?? H ??????? What the ... ? All of my basses and our guitarists guitars, have the octave markers at the 12th fret position. That means that we can't possibly rip-off the other bands songs, because they're obviously using guitars with 14 frets per octave. The sneaky b*stards! I haven't actually heard this song of theirs yet, but I expect that it will make them instantly world famous (not every day that you get to hear an Hm chord is it)? So, I expect that you will all being seeing them soon, smugly peering at you from the cover of "Guitar Player" magazine. In the mean time, the rest of us have to start thinking about what to do with our (soon to be defunkt), worthless instruments . Not a happy start to the new year, I know, but the sooner you all hear about it, the better!
