He is still alive. Not for long. Until then, he hasn`t passed yet. CBS acted too soon.

From what I have researched ( a lot)  he remains alive and his family has a do not resuscitate order in place but is not expected to live thru the night, this I do not understand unless he is in a coma or has lost all brain functions why not resuscitate him? more updates are needed to clarify as a whole lot of people are confused including me.

I'm not so sure.

There were initial reports that he died but I was just watching the local news and they're saying he's in ICU following a major heart attack.

I seen that too but later reports said he was brain dead and they pulled the plug I sure hope you are right and I am wrong.

I love it, when I was growing up in Milwaukee my mom made spam and scalloped potatoes with some onion and breadcrumbs and milk it tasted fantastic I still make it today and on occasion fry it up for breakfast or lunch and at 2.45 a can it is still a cheap alternative. smile

You can count me as not a fan, recently there was a Rush tribute band playing in the area I could tell they worked hard at it but from there, promo video the lead vocalist did not impress me nor did the rest of the group they would be better off playing a few songs by Rush and dropping the " tribute" tag oh and there was a $10 dollar cover charge! come on lol

And just as an indicator of just how bad Seattle's offensive line is, I don't think I could find a better, more emblematic picture than this one.

It was like that all day long.

" I think the Packer corners took his wallet and car keys, too!" lol funniest quote I have heard in a while good one! I missed the Raider game they gave us Chicago vs.Atlanta and later the Dallas game I hope Eddy Lacy plays well for you he was dynamite  when he first came to Green Bay but started to put on weight to many Cheeseburgers and fries (he loves them)

I watched the game (naturally) the Seahawks still have a very good defense their offense looked a little unhinged with flashes of some fantastic catches and Wilsons running, Lacy is still loved in Greenbay even after his lackluster effort it was kind of nice to see the Bennett bros. especially when the one brother came over when his brother was injured on a play. I think the Packs defense is much improved on the line they really got after Wilson and Rogers took a few hits himself there were  a few bad calls that hurt the Hawks but that's football we know how it feels smile all said both teams need to gel but it is only the first game of the season I expect both teams will settle in and meet again in the playoffs.

I sometimes use digital trio  live  but sometimes it can be a problem with getting the rythm right first shot ,so generally I pre record the tracks onto a loop and play them  back,how ever if you are inputting into a pa it doesn't allow the sound guy much leeway to equal the drum and bass so you might have problems .So I am some times a bit reluctant to  go down this route.Don't shy away from it though as it can sound great inthe right situation.For small venues or street  use when I have full control of the pa I input the trio into one channel  guitar into another and vocal  into a third.

I have to agree with you on getting the rhythm right I experiment a lot with the different genre dial it would be interesting to run a rhythm unit with a Latin beat into the trio to see it produces any change

I have the Digitech Trio and they came out with an upgraded version that has a loop function so you can save each progression and it adds your guitar to the loop automatically.
The cost is around $300

If you can find an Alesis SR-16 (I have one) on your side of the big pond latch on to it because it has fantastic pre sets for Reggae, Latin AND a fill button with a foot switch plus it has pressure sensitive pads and cymbals for a more "live" feel.  I thought of another work around try the country setting and slow the tempo way down on the Trio

Not a great success Russell so far .However I included a version in the set I did today for a fund raiser for the local Air ambulance.I played it with a rock rhythm and used my imagination a bit. Went down really well .Different and not the way we used to do it with GB Blues in Greece,but still fun.

Sound like a good cause and you probably had a blast, if it were me I would record a guitar, bass and drum track and add some keyboard on my 24 track Tascam and mix and pan it and put a whole set together and cut a CD and play in thru the system. one at a time and sometimes I like to create mixes live just to let the audience get an idea what goes into a song,  of course, I talk to them along the way lol  smile smile

Cheers Russell I try that tomorrow.

Grah try putting it on "Blues setting" and find a slow rhythm for "Aint no sunshine when your gone" and speed it up then try switching the dial with the lights to different interpretations also try pushing the "Alternate button on the top right that will give you another set of ideas good luck with it hope it works ok for ya smile

Perhaps extending the number of logins before you can post is the answer, say 10 or so would put a damper on the spamists
