"content ID will fix the problem of copyright online" except it's an absolute clusterfuck of false claims, bad tech, and censorship-lite... Yeah, that new EU directive is going be just great for music online... #SlowClap
from Twitter user twitter.com/iris__ks - "when i feel bad about my social skills i remind myself how one time rachmaninoff decided he was gonna be pals with stravinsky (who'd casually mentioned he liked honey) so he showed up at his house in the middle of the night with an enormous jar of honey and no explanation" :D
"Improvisation is the musician drawing from everything he's learned so far...It's an unconscious release of all the things you've ever learnt" - deep wisdom from #AllanHoldsworth in the June 2000 issue of Guitarist Mag. His music teaches me every time I listen. #improvisation #jazz #musiclessons #learning #wisdom #music #mastomusic
Spent the day hanging out with #zombies, shooting a music video. Fun times 😊
More pics from #TheThe's gig, and finally meeting James Eller afterwards. I still love meeting up with long-Time Internet friends finally IRL. That'll never get old 😊
Just released this to my #bandcamp subscribers. And tomorrow my latest solo album-proper comes out publicly. I love experimenting with the affordances of digital distribution for different sustainable models for music making. I release about 8-10 albums a year, presented as albums cos I still value the narrative arc, but instead of putting them all out individually, I have subscribers who get them all. Makes life way easier #music #bass #jazz
Missing Greenbelt. Was such a great weekend, even with missing 95% of the stuff I wanted to get to and only seeing half the friends I'd wanted to catch up with...
Portrait Of Tracy transcription from about 15 years ago, for Total Guitar Magazine. That was tough!
Cycling this morning. Still feeling knackered after festivalling at the weekend so trying to get some energy for song-learning, PhD writing and this ridiculous request to write an HND course completely unpaid.
The UK's leading solo bass guitarist, but don't let that put you off. Journalisting, teaching and PhDing too. See http://stevelawson.net for more...
