Improvising on the Mallet Kat - Mario's Wed. Mallet Hang

I made a quick video for mario's Wednesday night hang. Check it out.





Comments

you should be one of the demonstrator in the frankfurt musikmesse 2009 for the malletkat !
with mario of course ! the duet, the duet !!

is there a looper in the malletkat (like a jam-looper) ?
I'm sure if you could make a split looper and a split solo, Tony could rip everything off...live.Sort of Michael Brecker with the EWI (or D.Lockwood on electric violin)
btw here is the link to musikmesse

The malletKAT has a WARP Generator (like an arpeggiator) but not a looper. I use a Roland RC 50. Watch alternatemode.tv next Wednesday night and I will play it for you.

I wish Tony and I were going to Messe, but so far,,,, no go!

I've planned to watch it, but what will be the european time please ?

We are on EASTERN STANDARD TIME. On Wednesdays, we are go live at 7PM.

It's probably the middle of the night for you. Tony and I will work out a time to do this on the vibesworkshop sometime in the afternoon, so you will still be awake!

you should post and 'event' every monday or tuesday, then people will see it.

thanks Tony,
if I can clean it up, I'll post a pdf

As you said in another post :
Give as much as you take .
Well, that took me some efforts, but now we can give it shot.

Tony please, can you explain me the chords in the bars 42-45, and maybe check the notes...this is my favorite phrase !

just turns into a C7 chord then goes to Fmin back to Cmi then D7 G7. turns into a minor blues there. make sure you can hear that. you know when you're playing a minor chord and then you hit a major 3rd it turns the chord into a dominant chord. a pretty recognizable sound. so just make sure you can hear that. mess around with it at home.

forgot to comment on that. you ARE one of those cats. and they're the best in my book. there's too many people that take and don't give back. that won't help this site. we need (and the instrument needs) lots of people that take and give. i love that concept.

i think of energy, you know you take a bunch of energy off the site and then you give back some energy. doesn't have to be an even trade, cause i figure if you practice and play great you give some of the energy out later on stage. but these things don't work unless there's an exchange of energy. energy being, a post, a dollar, a comment. all energy in my book.

and judging by your video, you give a lot. i can tell you're a pretty giving guy which is why we all like you here. and i'm finding out how good you are as time goes by!

Thanks.
I realize I don't like to read compliments... I mean it's nice and I appreciate it, but if I give a lot (probably my inner-building) I take much more by reading and watching the BIG ones being themselves, telling stories and jokes, being open minded persons...
Internet is definitely a great source to make a community without having to deal with facing personnalities (what do you think bob?).

BTW I should get two octaves expanders for my malletkat in my school for the 1st birthday of VW ! So I take too... :o)
