GROOVY NOODLES

THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER

April 30, 2021

Take Two

So, here we are – the second installment of “Groovy Noodles” … and we can’t help but ask ourselves, “What do you write in a weekly newsletter that will keep people’s interest and not put them to sleep?”

The struggle is real.

We’ll keep it brief, but informative.

New Guitars? Really?

Last week, we mentioned how we will be in Texas in July to maybe do some video work, some recording, and hopefully tackle a few other tasty projects. We are SERIOUSLY looking forward to it.

We’ve decided it may be time TO EXPAND the arsenal. We are CURRENTLY in the market for brand new acoustics to add to the TREASON attack.

And what better place to land these new axes than in Music City itself? Austin! 

We each have a few models we’re interested in trying out. We’ll keep you updated.

Facebook Topic Help

Just about everyone who gets this newsletter came to discover Elm Treason through Facebook. (For that, we are grateful to Facebook).

One of the things we love to do on our page is post “topics” that allow people to get “interactive” with us. For instance:

“What was your first favorite song?”

“What was the first music you spent your own money on?”

“What is the greatest song intro ever?”

We’d love to get some fresh ideas for things we can talk about on the page that’ll get the comments a-flowin’. Got any ideas?  Leave it below.

Seriosuly, we’d LOVE to hear from you on this.

Don’t forget to fine a place in Austin to gig. Do it free you never know who’s watching. Could be a good place to try out your new toys. Mr. Postman by The Beatles.

First song _ king of the road
T Rex – Electric Warrior
Greatest intro is a hard one as would depend on one’s style of music.

How about “to which song did you lose your virginity?” LoLoL
I don’t really think you guys will post that, but I’m happy to be the first commenter and to drop that bomb 😜🤣🤩

Canadian music… of course there is the obvious but how about the little in the band that you saw in a small club? My friends and I shall we say discuss animatedly what music that is Canadian is actually known outside of Canada.? Concert where the opening unknown band blew you away possibly even more than seeing the headliner? Personally I just want to know what a guitar lick yes and if it is what I think it is then what is your favourite guitar lick?

Alan Seger

It’s impossible to remember my first favourite song but what pops into my head is Do Wah Diddy Diddy which of course I recently changed the lyrics to, “Who’s you daddy and what did he do?”

I had access to my older sister’s music so I think the first time I spent my own money on music was Alice Cooper’s Killer or Love It To Death I bought them within weeks of each other and can’t remember which was first. I remember saving up my allowance for weeks when I was about 8 years old to buy a harmonica that was attached to two Beatles song lessons. Love Me Do and one other I can’t remember.

Greatest song intro ever? That’s hard. There are so many. I’m going with School’s Out as my first favourite but I’d be equally happy with Black Dog or Still Raining Still Dreaming.

Alan Seger

Another song that sticks out when I was young is To Sir With Love.

Mark Caro
