A Sonnet

I doubt many people even READ “Sonnets” any more – much less even TRY to attempt to write one –  I can’t take much credit on this one – but I can say I helped – FINISH IT!  Which is funny – people could be a novelist or published author, etc – but you HAVE TO FINISH!  Which is NOT as easy as it sounds…

Trust me – it’s hard – but “I FINISHED” a 650 some odd page REFERENCE MANUAL – and A LOT of other works – and they are PUBLISHED.

Be that as it may – here’s “A SONNET” – I helped FINISH:

 


To want to rid the world of all that is unknown

Love, Live with worth and pride and belief of the life

Hold on to knowledge that will always make it right

Faults are present even from this queen on her throne

 

Consequences of life subside when left alone

Let the heart of the world decide what should be

Thoughts, feelings, intuition make it clear to see

Expectations make a life last, last so long

 

Just find a way to live a life and never grieve

The thoughts that bleed into the soul of a life in time

Made they were to be the faults to never last or leave

Intention unspoken yet never meant to rhyme

 

It is when they speak to make all the world listen

Falter, stumble, cry or accept what is given…

(By Stacy and Steve)

Think it’s easy? YOU try it!

Yes, it’s TRUE – don’t know why –

But it is….

You really just need to learn how to PLAY the Guitar!

It doesn’t hurt to write a book too:

STUDIO MAKEOVER

STUDIO MAKEOVER IN PROCESS

I’ve got more and more A/V projects so it’s time to get the studio in shape!

Yep, I’m working on my two offices – as I’ve got to get my studio back in GREAT SHAPE – it doesn’t take long before I get cables just spread out everywhere  – and I’ll add a device to my POWER SUPPLIES or end up doing some video work that has to be exported from my Pro Tools Machine over to my MAIN WORK STATIONS or my OUTER OFFICE.

But I spend MOST of my time in my Studio office – as that’s where I have my three monitor set up – which allows me to be 40% (PROVEN) more productive.

MY MAIN STUDIO WORK STATION

MY STUDIO SET UP

The above photo is of my THREE MONITORS for my Studio – it’s actually two different computers – two monitors on one machine, and the third is in my  network but I can opt in to use the third monitor via Maxi-Vista Networking monitor application.  This gives me a TON of real estate and allows me to test all sites with numerous browsers, etc.

It’s also cool that I’m using TWO computers – (and a 17″ laptop on my right and a 15″ laptop on my left) – so I can TEST, TEST, TEST!   I also have the two main work stations linked with A/V – so I can capture audio for video production, pop that into my MASTERING SOFTWARE and completely remaster all audio for my videos – and also allows me to keep working as Video Rendering can take up to THREE HOURS sometimes!

I can also STREAM MUSIC from Computer 2 into computer 1 – and the audio is GREAT – with total Surround Sound for testing  PRO TOOLS AUDIO from a totally seperate set of speakers –

And then there’ my PRO TOOLS STATION  with a 27″ Monitor and adding a 42″ for just the MIX WINDOW for PRO TOOLS – and I can take the audio out of computer 1 or 2 or any laptop and run that through my main power amp that then allows me to test SOUND with FOUR DIFFERENT sets of speakers – before I take it out to the CAR or a boom box to TEST AGAIN – before releasing the tracks.

It’s a TON of work – but once I get it all set up then I take my 88 weighted Midi keyboard and use it for production direct into pro tools – along with my MIDI converter for my Drum Machine and non-weight 66 keys MIDI CONTROLLER  – I’ve got some many apps and virtual instruments that I haven’t even been able to get around to trying all of them out – must less learn to use them quickly – but I’ll get there – as I’ll be taking SATURDAY Afternoons off – and working on the studio and have finally said – I’m NOT WORKING ON SUNDAY’S  – I need some down time – decompress as it were – but I’m sure if the mood strikes the studio will already be up, working and READY  – just open a template (depending on the type of song) and ARM THE TRACKS and GO!

Once this Studio is done – then I’m taking my OUTER OFFICES and turning them into a day time work place – get some daylight and have MORE room for my LAPTOPS, MACS and extra monitors in various sizes to test with different screen resolutions, screen sizes and anything else I may need – but I must admit after learning PHP I don’t have to sweat a DIV-TABLE any more and my sites all work well – on every monitor – save for the 42″ – but that’s OK – it’s for MIXING up to 42 or more track and still being able to see them to set automation and the like.   Will be glad to get it all set back up and have MORE room in the outer offices for paper work and the like – or my computer work bench for tearing apart machines and adding new peripherals, etc – so it’s all going to be ORGANIZED – CLEAN and EXTREMELY USER FRIENDLY and FUNCTIONAL!

Some Cool Recordings!

I got to slip away for at least a night to get OUT of this studio and take a break – even thought I worked pretty much all day Saturday and was back at work Sunday afternoon – but I did record some really cool stuff while away –
Now I just have to transfer to my DAW or my Recording SW and then see IF can’t finish this song I’m working on!  It was really cool to have a lot of people weigh in on my lyrics i posted – will have to try to work that into the song- but I may have written most of the music now – we’ll see…just never enough time in the day!

More to come!

My First Gig!

May 19, 2011

I remember this like it was yesterday!

I remember wanting to get a good guitar – not just any guitar – a really good guitar and I had my eye on a 76 Les Paul – Wine Red!

There was NO way to get that guitar but to get a job – making minimum wage – and that was the LAST time I would ever have to do that!  But I had to work from 4:00 to 10:0o p.m. 3 nights week and from 4:00 to like 3:00 a.m. at a place that was GREASY to say the least – in fact, I kept my “branded” apron I had to wear – as that job was HUMILIATING!  But I was just old enough to drive but NOT really old enough to work – but I would do ANYTHING for that Guitar – and I finally bought it – within 6 months – my first Band “FOREVER” was formed and we had our FIRST GIG – Sat Sept 22, 1977 – and we made MORE MONEY then – than most bands out there are making per night and that’s a LONG TIME AGO – that was it – I was HOOKED and I never went back…

I was me, Kevin Ivey on Guitar, Andy Gehman on Guitar, Sid Powers on Drums, Doug Craft on Bass and Frank Lacy on Keys – well a synth that he had built from Scratch – not much of a light show – but I had a MILK CARTON with a strobe underneath it – so I could stand up on it and play lead!  Kind of funny in retrospect but I l0ved every minute of it – and to think we made MORE in that one night than we could have made in WEEKS of working a BS JOB – that was all I needed – wasn’t long after that – that I started to play Country Clubs and then went off to college – only to come back to OPEN for Paul Davis at our largest Theater in my home town – so those HOURS of practice paid off! –

It’s a shame that cover charge hasn’t changed since then – so needless to say starting out now it harder than it was back then – but still to me – it was ALL WORTH THE JOURNEY!

This is an oldie but a goodie – shot a long time ago in Oxford, MS  (Ole Miss)

I think I may try to put this in SONY VEGAS – and then re-master the two track and sync it back up with the original video…

In fact, I need to redo a LOT of my video – but it’s just finding the time!

Steve Moore is best know for his guitar playing – I guess although he probably played more side gigs on Harmonica than anything else which wasn’t a bad thing as there wasn’t but a HARP BELT to carry about with all 12 Keys!

Singer/Songwriter Steve Moore.  This photo was taken in Mississippi quite some time ago when Steve used to play the SOLO CIRCUIT from the Austin to the East Coast – it was a lot easier back then – and traveling and playing SOLO was a lot more cost efficient and a lot easier to find fill in Gigs pretty much any night of the week.
