    Based on what I'm seeing on the news today we're about a week from this becoming a nationally required thing not left up to individual states. I don't believe we're going to be seeing any group of 10+ events for a good few months at minimum...There will be however a cornucopia of online events as we're all jonesing to get our ya ya's out..

    Speaking about that...and to change the direction of this thread a little...how is everyone occupying all their stay at home time with music making or anything music related?

    I've been wanted to get back to some playing and recording, which I can certainly do while at home...though I was going to start gearing up to get back out for some live gig stuff, but now that's probably on hold at least until the fall the way things are going.
    Right now I'm still trying to wrap up the finish work on the new studio space...I can't seem to get past having to paint something every time I turn around...
    ...but hopefully in the next week I'm going to start moving some gear into the new space, and first on my list will be to get at least one amp plugged in, so I can go in there every day an just jam a bit. I haven't picked up a guitar in months because of this construction...but now I'm eager to get those fingers back in action and some callouses back on them.

    If I can get the new studio set up in the next month or so, and we are still in this shutdown mode...I'm just going to get back to working on some songs, and eventually recording them solo, but I was looking forward to inviting people over for some recording projects...I'm just not sure when folks will be motivated and willing to do that sort of thing without feeling uncomfortable with all the social distancing stuff and precautions everyone is adopting.

    Recording is on hold for me
    I’m busy putting together a classroom to accommodate this new “distance learning” school setup. I guess it will be like regular school except through skype.

    Oh...is that what they are doing out there by you?

    Around here, there is some expectation that the schools will be back in session by May 1...and then they can do some catch up and actually get this year done normally, maybe just a few weeks late, since they managed to piggyback their spring break plus the bunch of unused snow days to cover a good chunk of this shutdown.

    With all the parents home with the kids...they should get back to the old frontier ways of home schooling.
    You know...maybe some of the positive fallout from this virus stay-at-home stuff is that families get some better bonding time, especially with the kids, who usually spend most of their days in school.

    Big +1 to that. There's always good to be found.
    This situation is a disaster, no doubt, but there's a huge amount of good coming from it in terms of how many families, and communities, are pulling together and supporting each other.
    With any luck some of that will stick with younger folks, long term.

    LOL I don't know about that.... My daughter with 3 kids ( 8, 5 and 4 ) locked up in her house without any other adults for a 10+ hour stretch each work day told my son in law "BRING WINE!" I am about to go bonkers...He brought her a bottle of white grape juice

    Absolutely this will be a unforgettable chapter in all of our lives and will change how we go about a lot of things going forward. Would not be surprised to see much more of the cyber classrooms...Both of my daughters are educators here in Cali and lets just say Ol Ben Franklin's saying "Necessity is the Mother of invention" is hard at work......and getting back on the topic of music...That is how Frank came up with the name Mothers of invention...cause music is a necessity! Rock on!

    I'm sure there's a lot of that going on!

    Anyway...I'll tell you what's really been bugging me lately on the music side.

    As I've been endlessly working with my studio construction, I've had my little "shop" radio always on. It's simpler than screwing around with internet and playlists and all that stuff...the radio I can plug in and dial in some station, and just let it go.
    I mostly listen to a fairly diverse station...everything from world music to Punk and Blues...and also some more current stuff, but not from the typical general public artists...but lesser known stuff.

    Of course, at some point, I kinda get tired of their playlists, or a couple of their odd programs, so I'll dial in something more common on some "classic Rock" station, because I grew up with that stuff...and man, it's so annoying to listen to those classic Rock stations, because they just cycle the same playlists day in and day out.

    I mean..as soon as they say there's a song from Zep, or Van Halen or any classic Rock artists...I know exactly which song they will play before they play it, because they only stick to a specific playlist for all the classic Rock artists...even if you move from one classic Rock station to another...it's the SAME songs.
    I mean, it's so pathetic, that after a couple of hours, I'm sick of listening to it.
    If they would actuality look at the discography of those artists, they would see that there were MANY other good songs to pick from but now...they just recycle the same ones.

    I get so tired of it...that I end up tuning in a classical music station just to cleanse my palate.
    My local radio stations are the same way. I recently discovered this Radio Garden – Explore live radio by rotating the globe
    If you have a smart phone it makes for a great radio. The site is just a globe, which you can rotate, and radio station from around the world are pin pointed with a green dot. Select a dot, and that station starts playing, and a pop up appears telling you where it is exactly, station, band and song name. Ive found some interesting stuff on there.
