You know what are great near-field monitors? These Focal Twin 6 monitors. Yeah, they're $1850 a piece, and you need to get a subwoofer for them to do it right. But hey, at least you don't have to buy an amplifier. Eric has a pair over at Trax East and they're very nice to mix on.
Instead of getting an M-AUDIO 2626 and a Focusrite Scarlett I think I shoulda just got the M-Audio Fast Track. Although, it wasn't available even a month ago. Derp. Of course for the difference in price I could just get another Mac Mini. Wait. Why do I need another Mini? Oh. Because I'm only barely allowed to use mine. Ahem.
The version of the Eyes of the World we're going for is the 1974 Jersey City version. They go into some interesting middle sections in that version.
The basic chords to Eyes of the World are pretty straightforward.
The Dm section at the end of the live version brings us into Gentle Giant territory though.
