Glass Pony (my band)
« on: August 30, 2017, 12:39:14 PM »
Haha hey so... i have a new band.  We played our first "show" last night at an open mic.  I think you guys will dig it.  Here's the first footage, which actually isn't completely terrible.  It's all songs you know, and I don't want to spoil it, so just watch; it's only 13 mins long anyway.  We jammed together for the first time exactly 1 month ago, decided to make a band, and here we are haha. 

We didn't have a name before the gig, and then after the host of the open mic was like "give it up for the Dark Ponies!" because he's called the Dark Horse in his band.... the surprise star, and because everybody in the scene here knows us all, but didn't know we really played, we were termed the Dark Ponies as the surprise highlight I guess haha.

You guys have lots of potential! Great job.
Now just fix that camera work

haha I'm the lead guitarist, on the left.  I kinda thought everybody knew what I looked like.  And yeah, I know....  that was shot by our singer's mom on her phone.  I'm hoping there's a way I can edit that to flip it in Youtube or something.  Do any of you guys know how to do that? 

There's other footage that's forthcoming so we'll see how those turn out.  But this was the first thing that was available, and Phish has conditioned me to expect instant replay footage after a show that I posted the first thing I could get my hands on haha. 

And thanks guys!  I thought the connecting jam was pretty neat and came together nicely for what we were trying to accomplish.  I wish I had more time to fuck around with my tone though because I'm not super happy with it, really.  It sounded so bright and trebly up on stage so I went to my bridge humbucker and rolled my tone all the way back but I regret doing that now because it's missing all the high end bite.  Oh well, next time!

Should be pretty easy to flip in iMovie.

Profile video really grinds my gears. Tell mom she better not do that again. Also, she's filming you more than her own son. Somebody wants to bang the guitarist...

Good stuff tho, man. Looking forward to hearing more.

ETA: oh no she turned it to landscape mid-video?!? That's even worse than starting it in portrait to begin with. Oh well, hope you get dem digits.

She's not unattractive, and she also lives 8 houses down from me.  With her husband.  Who is way cool.  They're awesome haha.  But you have brought up an interesting point....

But quite literally she is about 1/4 mile away from me right now hahaha.

Playing for the first time in front of people takes balls IMO. I thought you guys sounded great. My only constructive criticism is that whoever is playing rhythm guitar, especially during Brown Eyed, should stop playing it like an acoustic. Sometimes less is more

In the video, which guitar?  Left or right?  Can you give me some timestamps for what you're talking about?  I'm curious. 


Also, I have some new stuff I think you guys will dig......  we have our first real show coming up in a couple weeks and rehearsal last night was pretty decent.  I think you guys will like this.  Again, we only get to practice once a week for like 2.5 hours and have been together not even 2 months yet, but this isn't too shabby I don't think.
