I got the lo tech blues, I'm as worried as a man can be
I got the lo tech blues, I'm as worried as a man can be
Ain't got no macbook, just a pc from 2003

I can start a whole new trend in the recording industry- no more studios, just use an ipod!

WAY TO GO, MARK
love it man, it's the real deal. Love the whole thing, especially the BoomBox part.

Never hear you lay down the Blues before, but from listening, I'd say you need to do this a lot more.

Great track Mark, I love it.

Tasty
Soem fine licks with some fine tone, considering how low tech.

Was that a tube iPod?

Really enjoyed.

Yes
It's an old ipod from the 70's with tubes- only enough memory for 3 songs and it weighs 20 pounds!

Lo tech Blues
Well that does it! You have got to be part of "Blues Jam @ MacJams Pt 2." I'll get going on the backing track! Great playing! This shows that low tech comes across just fine when the playing is high level.

Low tech is the hot new thing, actually, glad you picked up on this new trend! Delicious blues there, very sweetly played. But then, it's Mark.

When
Sarah Palin was caught with notes written on her hand she called it a "poor man's teleprompter" (trying to be real folksy) so I guess this is poor man's overdubbing.

This sounds terrific, Mark...
I listened on speakers right after I got home from work, and I had to come back and listen again on the best headphones.... It sounds nicely live.... And I like your tone and phrasing all the way through...

Since what we've heard so far is you and all sorts of jury-rigged systems involving PC's... GET THAT MACBOOK!....

Meanwhile, from YOUR iPod to mine.....

It doesn't take anymore than this
to put a smile on my face and dig how talented you are Mark. Tracking it old school never sounded better. I used to do the same thing in the bathroom to get lots of reverb. lol

Proof...
It's not the recording device or even the sound quality that make the difference. Rather, it's the skill of the musician, the cleverness of the composition, and the security of the performance. You have all of that here, Marc, and that's why this is such a terrific track. ...
