Humble beginnings. 

I really like building and decorating in TS4 though I really feel stupid I can’t find out how to free rotate objects. Feels like good old TS2 days 45 degree only. Also I can’t find new cheat “moveobjects on”…  


“Boogie Woogie Man” from Time out for Rhythm (1941)


Clarence Hutchenrider (13 Jun 1908 - 18 Aug 1991) - New Orleans by Glen Gray & The Casa Loma Orchestra

Rock and Roll got a start because THE BEST generation was busy with the Korean War and it’s interruption, and the legacy great songwriters were gone or not doing output. BUT ROCK used the tools of the melodic and lyrical past. Now, morphosis of derivitive on top of derivitive has created a need for visuals and/or shredded riffs for embellishment of the tired rehash of imitated imitations. Or, people who have not heard the better music are trying to write something better, and coming up with a new genre, Joyous Noise, which can be entertaining, if not fullfilling. Lots of talent out there, being mis directed.

I am going to solve your problem, so that you get paid. But you’ve got to cooperate. There is an old jazz classic by Glen Gray. It is not NEARLY as spectacular or fundamentally as great as at LEAST a THOUSAND other jazzy up-tempo tunes from BEFORE `1950, or, (BP) Before Presley. BUT the typical garage-band can HANDLE it.

Then, ONE band won’t do it. ALL the MPLS musicians must perform it , every set, so as to familiarize the audience with the comparative nuances. DO A COVER on the song, using guitar simulations of the instrumental solos and harmonic punctuations.

It is hooked by ASCAP or HARRY FOX protocols, probably, but deal with that.
Next, you might try “Frenesi” by Artie Shaw, and after that, —-Zoom.
