Tonights Show...



The last show, I can't believe it. Well its not the last, cause we've got the Christmas special, and the Basement Jam, and it's all for free, can't be bad. I hope everyone can watch tonight, and the others of course.
I found some lovely sounding chords with that new tuning, but no words, I'll have another quick go, but don't hold your breath.
Another short blog from me here, I going to leave even earlier this week, and hope I don't get in the same problems as last week.
So, I hope you get a clean feed, and really enjoy the show.

Thanks very much bloggers, give me a shout.

Mikey,

I really love that song 'Tourist'.
Your pickin' and singin' is
so robust and full of soulful
gusto.You really put the feelings
into your music which is the
type that reaches into the
listeners outer reaches.
Keep it comin' mate!

You're going to put me out of a job!

Seriously, good song, really cool video.

just finished watching the last Attic...Mikey, "Wanting" was brilliant. Yes, you must resurrect the "Matches" song, great hearing "Plasticine" again.

Thank you for all the music, the humor, stories, useless facts....you rock my friend!!!!!

thank God you are blogging cos I'd have serious separation anxiety without you, Pete, Simon, Rachel, Stuee since we have to wait till Dec. 4th!

You gotta sort out "matches" for when i come to basement jam, what a tune. I have got that hookline stuck in my head now. Any chance of a link to a download for it. Shaun.

Hey congratulations Lucy! That was neat hearing your name mentioned.Justin's too!
Mikey, that was fantastic. I didn't boo-hoo during Plasticine but I did tear up.The passion of feeling that you feel for Rene is so strong and ...moving, I guess. I relate to feeling that way about someone.
Good Job, Mikey.Can't wait for the 4th!
( only 1 hug and kiss for you, you have a girfriend who's nice.It wouldn't be appropriate!lol) xoLisa

Mikey,
Thanks for playing Tourist. You were brilliant as usual. I also enjoyed your little film at the end.
I am looking forward to hearing you play bouzouki. I'll bet you play it like a Greek!
I won't be around for the basement jam or the xmas special but will be thinking of you all. Play a song for me.

Hi Mikey,
Thanks so much for sharing your wonderfulness with us! You are loved by many!

I was cleaning my kitchen for HOURS last weekend and I kept singing Plasticine, because well, I have this gorgeous voice that no one will ever hear! But seriously I love it and it's really fun to sing. I especially like the plastic see -ee-ee-een part (phonetically speaking, you get the drift). Could you please post the lyrics someday?
I only know a few of the words.
You are right on about the positive flow that is created when you sing.
My voice has much improved as I've cleaned up my act...I know that it has, because my daughter's friends don't make nasty comments like, "does you mom
mean to sing so badly?" ah, kids these days...
I love love love your Indonesian blog - haven't been able to read it much lately, but I'll pick it up again soon.
We may move to Taiwan for a year or so, so I'll have to blog about my travels in the Pacific Rim, should that come to pass...I hope it does!
Take care.
I'll miss your cute little mug!

FANTASTIC TONIGHT MIKEY!!! Loved your playing and there was such a great upbeat vibe. If you all were sad I couldn't pick up on it!

We had a blast chatting 12 consistant and 19 if you count those in and out. We are all taking pics of our boots every week and posting them...just an Attic thing I guess sinse everyone seemed to be wearing boots of some sort tonight. LOVED your red shoes by the way!

So excited to see the 4th's show as well as the Christmas Jam!Get some rest you deserve it!

HEY BOOBIE! went out tonight -- kind of a ritual for me and my mates in los angeles the night before thanksgiving. i returned home to put on the attic immediately...and...very strange, to receive an email from my old flame and love...he lives in LIVERPOOL! should have married him...but that is 10 years ago. met while traveling thru europe and israel. oh well...but kind of strange hearing from him after all these years and having these tie to you and rachel and your "world." the show today is great. only have seen a bit, but caught you singing. YOU ARE BRILLIANT. thank you for all!

I loved everyones singing Mikey.

I can see you're going to get even better on guitar, because you have talent and you are interested in all of those tunings etcetera.

Funny to realise that our music scales, the ones used very often in western music, are not complete.
That's the difference with a sitar and a guitar, a sitar has 16th and 32nd divisions, without bending any string, more representative of all the sounds available to us in the ether.
That's why the voice is the most perfect instrument, it can get to all of the in between bits.
I bought a guitar in Southend once Mikey, in MonkeyBiZZ, i think it was called, driove all the way, from Holland, thinking it was cheaper there, whenI got back here to Holland, I saw the exact same guitar for the same price ahaha.
Well, was a nice trip.

I have a bit about Indian music scales I'll put it on my page in awhile, it explains very simply the difference between Western music and Eastern, specifically Indian and explains how each tone has a colour and an animal assigned to it, and how music connects us to our divine oversoul.

Another great show, Mikey ... luckily there is still the two bonus shows or I'd be starting to twitch at the thought that this was over for a while.

I need help to ID what appeared on the wall of my studio. I got a photo of it and posted it on my blog. If it was a ghost it was a friendly ghost.

Mikey,

Hope you enjoyed the show last night and indeed the whole series.

We enjoyed our little session!

just wondering whether you and Rene fancy coming London bound on Saturday to watch our gig at The Halfmoon in Putney. Should have asked you before to give you a bit of notice but it's been hectic. I've been in France and then when I got back I went straight to Manchester to do a gig.

Take Care

Great last show Mikey! I'm really going to miss seeing you every week. I'm glad there's a couple more shows scheduled for December though. I really hope Rachel decides to do a season 2 in the New Year, and that you will be the co-host again. Any way, congratulations on helping to make this show a big hit! You have a lot of new fans now for your efforts!

Mikey,thanks so much for the great entertainment you have given us over the past ten weeks or so.It was very appropriate to close the regular season with the "Wanting" video. Actually made me a bit sad though. Sicerely, a great job and keep up the good work and great spirit you obviously have!

Hey Mikey,
thank you so much for doing In The Attic with Rachel. Going to miss hearing your infectious laugh and your live renditions of your songs. You left us all wanting more so I hope you do more after the holidays.

Looking forward to possibly meeting you in person.

I posted a new MP3 of one of my songs onto my Boy Who Heard Power Chords blog. It's called "Just Can't Take My Eyes Off You", something a little different. It's a rough sketch and needs more guitar, there's a spot for the solo, but I haven't worked that part out yet. Hope you have time to listen and comment.

Now I'm off to enjoy a classic Italian Thanksgiving at the Cardullo's..

Thankyou so much everybody, you all blow me away with your kindness, I don't normally pray, but will for your Mum Lucy, well done for winning, you deserved it.
There's so many of you to thank for your constant support, although we've got another couple of show's yet, and Rachel has spoke about another series, nothing's certain though. So happy to have met you all, this whole blog thing has made me feel conected like never before.
I'm having a easy relaxing day today, they reckon we could have a chance of snow fall later, it's absolutely freezing.
Anyway, thanks again everybody,you know who you are, you have made the show a success by enjoying it, I feel a lot more confident about my future, so this is the last one, thanks bloggers.

Hey Sam, sorry mate, Giles texted me yesterday and I havent replied, I would love to see you on Saturday, but it's a long way for me and Rene, sorry mate.
By the way, I enjoyed your CD, it's full on, Giles sings like Lenny Kravitz, and some of your arrangments sound punky, its a great fusion, thanks for the cd mate, hope the gig goes really well, and I'm sure I'll see you soon, take care Sam.
