    Where's our Buddy ...

    Oh where oh where is our man with the ten-sting guitar? Oh where oh where can he be?
    Gee, I hope ya didn't get your fingers all tangled in your ten-string guitar again. For da cripes sake Karl let us know how you're doing from time to time. Send up a flare or smoke signal once in a while. Morse code works in a pinch too ya know!

    Here Karl, this may help especially knowing the internet will be down for a while.

    Morse Code Alphabet
    The International morse code characters are:
    A .- B -... C -.-. D -.. E . F ..-. G --. H .... I .. J .--- K -.- L .-.. M -- N -. O --- P .--. Q --.- R .-. S ... T - U ..- V ...- W .-- X -..- Y -.-- Z --.. 0 ----- 1 .---- 2 ..--- 3 ...-- 4 ....- 5 ..... 6 -.... 7 --... 8 ---.. 9 ----. Fullstop .-.-.- Comma --..-- Query ..--..

    Hmm, when I was in college I made up a chart of musical rhythms based on morse code. Basically just eighths and quarters.

    I would encode "secret messages" into my pieces. I never documented them so I can't remember most of them now.

    You can create a lot of cool rhythmic figures and polyrhythms with these things.

    I wonder if I have that chart lying around somewhere -- I'll post it if I can find it.

    Does anyone except a ham radio novice use the morose code any more?

    SERIOUSLY: The Alvin Etler brass quintet, a fiendishly difficult piece even today, was premiered by the NY Brass Quintet, with my musical mentor and hero Harvey Phillips on tuba.

    Hidden in a maze of counter rhythms and irregular barlines is an ostinato:

    three 16ths, 16th rest, 4 16ths, 2 16ths, 8th rest, quarter.
