The DVD is packed with over 22 HOURS of education, trading techniques and live trade examples. I recorded live trades so you can see every detail of why I make the trading decisions that I do! I don’t just teach you how I do it; I show you exactly how I do it! While the first four chapters lay the groundwork for everything that goes into my preparation before I even make a trade, the last eight chapters are where I dive into the specific strategies I use daily.
After the fairly straightforward West Coast folk rock of Tim Buckley and Goodbye and Hello, 1969’s Happy Sad finds the young singer-songwriter transitioning to a more experimental sound. Featuring killer guitar work from Lee Underwood, stellar vibraphone from David Friedman and a much stronger jazz bent, the record marks the beginning of Buckley’s exploration of atmosphere, mood, and octave bending vocal gymnastics, elements that would take an even more avant garde turn on subsequent albums. After 40 years, how does Happy Sad stand up? Only a song-by-song analysis will reveal the answer..
Meet up with Tim Wallace, international advertising and automotive photographer, and a Ford Fairlane to learn what is possible for shooting cars with just one camera, one lens, and one speed light. You’ll learn about the gear he uses, the importance of choosing a location that matches your subject, and through the power of Photoshop layer masks, how creative your lighting possibilities can be with just one light.
The folks at Manifesto have done an excellent job in keeping the music of Tim Buckley on the market over the past ten years, even going so far as to release three highly revealing new discs of live recordings. Nicely bookending Buckley's most productive years, The Dream Belongs to Me continued that streak. Split between two 1968 demo sessions and a similar tracking date from 1973, the music contained illustrates that quite a lot had happened to Buckley in the intervening years, both personally and musically…
With source material like this, how can you go wrong? Like Nick Drake, Tim Buckley had a body of work that survived not only the ignominy of commercial oversight but also his own untimely death to live on in the imagination and influence of a new generation of artists and music lovers. The fruit of that influence is realized on Sing a Song For You, a two-CD collection of Buckley covers from a wide range of contemporary artists. The holy trinity of Tim Buckley's appeal were his amazing voice, which could swoop its way through multiple octaves; his lyrical strength and formidable songwriting skills; and his incessant experimentation with new forums and formats for his musical vision. Though Sing a Song For You lacks the first of these, it has the last two in mighty doses. Many of the tracks on these two CDs rely on the power of the original songs; others grasp Buckley's improvisatory spirit and recast them in new and startling light. Brendan Perry's (Dead Can Dance) version of "Dream Letter" is sparse and interpretive, riding on Perry's haunting voice. Mike Johnson's "I Woke Up" drops the original's light jazz breeze for a loose and dark arrangement. The Lilys amp up "Strange Feelin'" with a joyful, crazed-rock vibe. Though Sing a Song for You will be of great interest to fans.
