Music & Drama

I am in a play. The cast has five guys and six girls who are doing a marvelous job at making the play 'The Curious Savage' come alive with tons of emotion and down right awesome humor.

So where does the music come in?

Case study 1:
Cast member X brings guitar into practice having slightly less learning than subject T(im). The subject, realizing his opportunity to test his social theory of the affects of six-stringed instruments on the female populace, plays a song.

Experemental Environment:
Dimly lit full thrust stage with set. Thirteen people are situated at various zones among the seats and stage. The group is disjointed and unorganized.

Subject T plays a few chords while quietly singing (or rather stumbling, I haven't quite got the hang of playing and singing at the same time).

The group assembled when the first few chords were struck (opening chords apear to have an attention getting affect on people, especially when played live). A few people joined in with the singing, but participation stayed relatively low. Female response was posative.

People (girls) dig live music.

OK, OK, so I botched a song and everyone laughed and we had ourselves a time. I think case study #2 will need a larger audience to really test my social theories. I still need to find some good vibes, though.

gwen already offered to help you out with the vibes, timf. might i suggest, however, that case study #2 involve food of some kind. (perhaps oatmeal, chicken fritters, lime chips, or spaghettio's.) thereby, regardless of botchings and regardless of whether the bulk of your audience is feminine (or whether the females of your audience are bulky), you are guaranteed the desired positive response. food is always a sure thing.

to add to what joy said, chocolate can also smooth over any botched chords...especially with da ladies.

as for vibes:
can't think of a good way to say what i'm trying to say...

tim: better start learning some new songs parce-que there's an artist series coming up that we have to have tickets for in a week and a half...
