Octopus-Inspired Design Ideas
The octopus, with its eight writhing tentacles and otherworldly appearance, has fascinated and inspired mankind since we first explored the oceans. While we may no longer write myths and legends about tentacled sea beasts, these modern octopus-inspired household designs are enough to inspire a dread of the deep. Some of us might not feel comfortable facing a slimy octopus, but the artists and designers behind these octopus products consider them be great sources of inspiration for their artworks. That sleek black leather octopus chair could be Poseidon’s throne, while those octopus chandeliers might make you feel like you’re 20,000 leagues under the sea.

ALMOST. JUST A LITTLE MORE.
Fall is coming! Yisssss.
Right now I’m using an American Vintage ‘62 Jazzmaster with Curtis Novak humbuckers and I’m digging it a lot. Before that, I was using a Guild S-100 which was really great too. Go for sound and playability- good luck! [JOE]
i never see Joe with a pencil and paper at rehearsal. He does all his work in his head. once in a while i will write a few notes down on a scrap piece of paper. we never write full charts. i will mix music notation and algebra in a way that helps me understand what i need to do. it probably wouldn’t make much sense to anybody else who might look at it.
it’s not that we couldn’t write the charts. it’s just that we don’t need to.
i am a firm believer in the idea that if someone wants to learn a song badly enough, they can use their ears to listen to the piece and their brain to figure it out to the best of their ability. i think it’s better to develop a good listening/analytical ability than to develop the bad habit of constantly lean on a crutch (tablature/sheet music).
maybe some day when we aren’t so busy we can get some tabs/sheet music together and make them available. but that may not be for a long time. in the meantime, just keep listening.
