I moved the Bored post to the top because it seems to be pretty popular.

Not much to do, not use to days off. So I did something blues-jazzy.

    I’ve been enjoying mornings on my deck pickin and grinnin. Maybe we should have a Thursday mornin deck session. Nothing fancy, just acoustic guitar and coffee. Does this sound interesting to either of you?

  2. leslie says:

    yeah- I’d be up for that and I’d like to play the bass again too. I’ll be back tuesday evening and could do any week night, too.

  3. isteve says:

    Well I’m working tuesday, wednesday and thursdays for the rest of the summer. So friday mornings, or any evening could work for me.

    just put new strings on the seagull.

  4. Pati says:

    How ’bout Friday morning pickin on the porch?

  5. isteve says:

    Sounds like a good way to start a friday, time?

  6. Pati says:

    10 works for me. This heats gonna break, or so they say. Feel free to invite other likeminded peoples.

  7. Pati says:

    Really listening to that bluesy jazzy riff Steve. I love it. It’s about awake=ning to me, sort of hopefula nd sweet. Got a line running through my head:

    I think I see the lights
    See the lifgts
    of a new city

  8. leslie says:

    steve, you should be bored more often-that riff sounds nice. I can do fri am on the porch…should I bring coffee or tequila??

  9. isteve says:

    I got a few more riffs that would make for a great 10am friday song.

    No matter how good a tequila sunrise would be it’s just to…. hmm …. no no, to early.

  10. Pati says:

    I could probably choke down one of those maple walnut cookies though.

    Looking forward to jamming with you guys. See ya Friday!

    I’m all set for coffee and could probably scare up something to put into it if anyone’d like to go for an early morning buzz.

  11. leslie says:

    see you soon…

  12. isteve says:

    i’ll be there

  13. leslie says:

    steve, thanks for the guitar workshop-let’s do that again. I hope you weren’t too bored…

    pati- thanks again for hosting!

  14. isteve says:

    that was a great way to spend a morning.
    wasn’t able to get a ipod touch the line at the apple store was huge, probably 200 people. And the other stores at the mall were sold out.

  15. Pati says:

    Yeah – i enjoyed pickin on the porch too. and checked my sneakers – they ARE new balance!

    Leslie thanks for the yummy strawberry bread – we’ve been enjoying it. have fun down maine.

  16. isteve says:

    NB it had to be. all part of being white.

  17. Pati says:

    Keeping a record here of my thoughts on this riff as they evolve:

    I think I see the lights
    see the lights
    of a new city
    I’m feeling the life
    I feel alive
    When I walk these streets

  18. isteve says:

    Cooool, I wasn’t sure about the words when I read them but i hit play on the song and ….. well cool I like it.

  19. Pati says:

    I think I see the lights
    see the lights
    of a new city
    I’m feeling alive
    I feel the life
    When I walk these streets

    I’m sorry that I did not say
    Goodbye before I went away
    I’m sorry that I could not speak
    Of everything you meant to me

    But I think I see the lights….

  20. Pati says:

    Anybody want to get together this week and work on this song acoustically? The porch is lonely and this song is worthy.

  21. isteve says:

    Any day in mind? I’m free tuesday and wednesday nights and all day thursday. Busy friday and saturday.

  22. leslie says:

    I am back tomorrow night, so could do tuesday, wednesday, whatever day

  23. Pati says:

    Looks like Thursday will work for all of us. I’m flexible with the time. What works for you all?


  24. isteve says:

    Thursday just need to agree on a time.

  25. leslie says:

    hmmm…6? 7? I am flexible

  26. isteve says:

    It’s almost thursday.

  27. Pati says:

    Sorry ’bout not getting back to you guys on the time. I drove Kathryn to her grandmother’s house today in Boston and I’m just getting home.

    Can you guys make it during the day? I was thinking earlyish, like 11. Do you work Steve?


  28. leslie says:

    I can’t really do day–ortho appts and sister with daughter visiting from DC! you guys do what works though—

  29. Pati says:

    Evenings are tough – I’ve gotta get Sam back and forth from football practice. Ouch! This is hard. Maybe we should look to next week.

  30. Anonymous says:

    yeah- probably I should hang with my sis- it’s their last night.

  31. Pati says:

    You’re a good sis!

  32. Pati says:

    Did you play for your sis, Leslie?

  33. leslie says:

    yes, actually I did! I am gonna own that Bm chord!
    I wrote a little riff with Bm and I have been working on it…slow going though. maybe you could add some words….

    when is HWC? are you ready?

  34. Pati says:


    Not at all ready for WHC. Sorta excited about Steve’s Bored riff. Still tweaking the lyrics, but can’t wait to hear how it sounds with bass, back vocals, drums and of course Steve’s fantastic riff.

    Steve, are you working days next week?

  35. isteve says:

    I’m working tuesday wednesday thursday 7 to 3.

  36. leslie says:

    time to set a date…

  37. leslie says:

    I’ll be doing Mike’s Mac class on 8/21, free otherwise, sign up early!

  38. isteve says:

    Anyone want to play the stones wild horses. I was listening to females sing it on youtube and really like it.

  39. Pati says:

    Steve – love the cartoon of Attic Noise – nice CD cover.

    Tuesdays are nice! How about Tuesday afternoon at 3:15 over here?

    If Paul is interested in coming we can make it Wednesday evening at 6:30. Paul?

    I’m not sure Wild Horses is right for my voice, never been able to sing it well, though I love the song. How ’bout you Leslie? Might sound really nice.

  40. Pati says:

    Steve can you put my cartoon pic in my little comment box??

  41. artifact8 says:

    I can do tues or weds, thanks for offering to host Pati.
    do we want to try the stage at the town hall sometime?

  42. artifact8 says:

    hey- nice riff and cool lyrics, btw

  43. isteve says:

    You got to have a wordpress account to use pictures.

    If you right or control click on the pictures I posted at the top you can save them or add them to iphoto.

    Tuesday or wednesday is cool for me so is the stage.

  44. patruskins says:

    OK, done. I’ve got a wordpress acct and downloaded the pic to it. How do I get it over here?

    If Paul is coming lets definatly do WEd night on the stage. If he isn’t lets do it over here Tues.

  45. patruskins says:

    OOOH it’s there! COOL!

    New City’s gonna be so cool. Got many of the lyrics rewritten really want to put it together. Not sure about bridge. Will need input, may be too sappy. Want cool, not sappy.

  46. isteve says:

    Pati I added you to the editors list of our blog. So you can now start new post and add photos to the blog.

    I don’t think paul make it so tue your place.

    Just tell your sappy is cool

  47. artifact8 says:

    can Paul make it Weds? I have to check stage availabilty

  48. patruskins says:

    Tuesday afternoon my place. Leslie, does this work for you? Say around 3:15 – 3:30?


  49. artifact8 says:

    want to do my house? it’s clean and empty–got the place to myself!

  50. isteve says:

    Maybe flip a coin

    Should I bring acoustic or electric? Need to take it with me to work in the morning.

  51. artifact8 says:

    I need to know that too if I’m travelin’

  52. isteve says:

    I’m going to bring my acoustic and my acoustic amp so I’m good.

  53. Pati says:

    I’ve got to run Sam over to football at 4:30, so I’d rather do my house today.

    I want to play around with New City, so it’d be good if you both could bring your impliments of construction for that song. Leslie, I’d love it if you’d bring your bass. Steve, will the sound be the same on the acoustic? Probably too late as your heading into work. Whatev, it’s all good.

  54. Anonymous says:

    got it- your house, electric. see ya

  55. isteve says:

    got the seagull and a amp should be fine

    See you there
