ResoSummit 2013 Roll Call

OK, who's going?

 

I'll be there.

time signature question

Hey friends - question for someone with a better understanding of written music than I have (I can write tab and check it with my software's "score checker," and that's about the extent of it).

I'm finally tabbing out "Here this Morning" so I have it available for ResoSummit. I'm running into an issue with measures. I think of the tune as being in 4/4, but when I write it out, a lot of the held notes anticipate the beat and fall right before a new measure should occur. My software doesn't facilitate showing that notes are held into the next measure, and it seems awkward and not quite accurate to put a "dividing line" in those spots. So what I'm looking at now is accurate tab, except that the measures all have twice as many notes as they should.

ResoSummit highlights & thanks

Hard to believe that ResoSummit 2012 is over.

Highights for me:
All the Station Inn shows -- I'm still hopeful that 100% of my hearing will return from that killer show by Randy Kohrs, Jack Pearson & Friends. Randy was definitely on fire, and it's always great to see/hear Josh Shilling on keys & vocals. Jack Pearson was unbelievable. Monroeville was high-octane bluegrass, and it was great to present them in their Station Inn debut. And as for that performance by Rob Ickes and Jim Hurst -- well, there are no words in the English language adequate to describe that phenomenal performance.

The closing faculty performance -- loved it all, and it was a beautiful thing to have Michael Witcher's gorgeous take on Roxanna Waltz as the last song of ResoSummit 2012.
