Current mood: awake

I hope everyone is enjoying life. I just released a new ROCKER,
"pushers takers thieves (changing direction)"! Streaming from my mind to yours.


I am no longer going to send mp3 file attachments. IF you would like ANY of my mp3, FREE, just ask. I am for sell on I-tunes and over 500 other sites if you feel like supporting what I do. I am still top seller on many sites, help keep me there. If you would like one of my limited edition CD's (free!),  let me know. THOSE that have already requested a cd, they are on the way! It has taken me a bit longer personalizing the cd's than I thought. Whatever I do creatively works on its own time-line. I have learned to just get out of the way and let what wants to be created, create.

NEW VIDEO UP! My friend, sound engineer and now video producer just finished up making my new video for "living 2 fly"!
Everything music has brought to me has been amazing and to have people create from my music blows my mind. Razor sent me the idea and we chose "living 2 fly" as an instrumental. It evolved from there. We CO-WROTE the lyrics together and RAZOR produced the video. The video speaks for itself and gets better the more it is watched. ENJOY!


As always I enjoy reading ALL comments.


Let me know if you would like to add anyone to my mailing list.

If you have any new sites you have found let me know! I have found some excellent new sites!

"dream 'n drool"

copyright 2011 c JASONGGABBOTT music & lyrics

so you're a DRUG addict

does that make you cool?

when you sleep at night

do you dream 'n drool?

can't keep still

arms moving

nothing seems real

doing nothing can ONLY KILL

NO emotions

YOU can't feel

chemicals in CONTROL


know your ROLL

so you're a DRUG addict?

does that make YOU COOL?

when you sleep at night do you dream 'n drool?

can't keep still

arms moving

nothing seems REAL

doing nothing can only KILL


you can't FEEL

CHEMICALS in control

know your roll

don't be afraid of the outside

who's inside is YOUR ENEMY

more is all you will WANT or NEED

can't PISS

can't breathe

CAN'T breathe

TIME passes US by


still wondering why...

Are You Too Old to Make It?

Most musicians I know hold a dream to someday ‘make it’ in the music business. To play in front of huge crowds and live a lifestyle that they can only imagine. Many of us believe that we’ll someday get there. Unfortunately most of us find ourselves growing older with an ever increasing fear that we’re missing the boat.

We’re conditioned to believe that if we’re going to make it then we have to do it at a young age. I had already started to have this feeling when I was in my early 20′s. I felt like I was slacking because I hadn’t ‘made it’ yet.

So how old is too old? Well, I think what we need to look at is the fundamental equation the whole business boils down to. It’s a value exchange between the audience and the artist. The audience pays money for the value they get from the artist. So ask yourself: how old would a performer have to be before you stopped receiving value from them? Would you not pay for a great artist who was 65 years old? I would. One of the best performances I’ve ever seen was a rock and roll band of men who were all in their 80′s!

So if people are willing to pay for good music then what’s standing in your way?

I saw an artist last night who didn’t mention her name once. There were no visual cues to let me know who she was. She never mentioned anything about CDs or merch for sale. No website. No mailing list. Nothing. When the show was over, she walked off the stage and into the dressing room.

It’s easy to look at her and see what she did wrong. What’s more difficult to see is that to one degree or another, most of us are making similar mistakes. A lot of musicians fall into the trap of thinking that either they’re going to be ‘discovered’ or nothing is going to happen at all, so there’s no real need or urgency to actually do the right things to grow an audience and a career.

So I urge you, instead of having your head in the imaginary future all the time, to take an honest look at where you are now. You have positive things going for you right now. It’s time you capitalize on those things and make the most of what you’ve got in front of you. Success is created in the present, not the future. You may never get to play Wembley Stadium or sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl, but you can absolutely have more and more fans coming to your shows. You can have a room full of people screaming your name. It may not be a 60,000 seat venue, but believe me, it will feel good.

What you need to do is let go of the belief that someday someone is going to make it easy for you and instead take 100% responsibility for your career. Have CDs and merch for sale and take responsibility for learning how to sell them. Have a mailing list and learn how to get people on it and how to use it. Take responsibility for letting people know who you are and how they can stay connected to you. Good things will happen in the real world when you step up to the plate, and believe me it will feel even better than when they happen in your imagination, no matter how old you are.

Current mood: content

 Never forget that you are never “done”.  It’s amazing to me how people will complete a recording or make a live video and act as if it is the only moment of their careers that mean anything.  Media of this type is only a single still frame in the movie of your life.  Every time you capture your art it is just a means to moving yourself further along and getting better at what you do as well as generating products that (hopefully) someone will want to purchase or at least take the time to appreciate.

Current mood: cheerful

You know almost all the guitar books say to sit up

straight or stand up straight while playing your guitar.

Great thing to tell a beginning guitarist but after you get

to THAT point it is great to try new positions! I saw

people lay on their bed and play before but never tried

it myself (yes beds are good for more than just sex,

sleeping and jumping on!). Today I tried it and it really

changed a lot of things! My fingers had MUCH less

tension on the strings, allowing for more "feeling" in my

play. Having the speakers farther away from my ears

also added a new aspect to my sound.
I have (up 'til this point) been

tethered by wires! AHHH.. I am now pretty much

wireless! YES! I did it on the cheap, like everything else

I do, I got a wireless headset and that frees up my

headphones when not using the amp or speakers. I can

plug directly into the headphones for a clean jam, or

plug into my new digitech rp155. I still need to get

something to go wireless to my f/x. I have also been

playing standing up more and notice it is VERY different,

as you all know. I need to watch some videos to see

how people get to the higher frets easily while standing.

I am experimenting with sound and position today and I

must say I am in NIRVANA! ROCK ON all you crazy STARS!

p.s. Speaking of Nirvana, (the band that is) I read in "Heavier
than heaven: A biography of Kurt Cobain", that Kurt and his
producer couldn't get the sound they wanted for, "Something in the way". The producer asked him to play it like he would without anyone there and he laid on the bed and played it and sang! The producer miked him from their! Just thought of that, interesting huh?

Current mood: cheerful

 I just went to the Guitar Center and they had a great sell! I got something I have been wanting and needing for years! In a way I am glad I didn't get it before, 'cause what I have been doing has made me a better player in my opinion, having to use what I have and work with it.
  I bought a brand new DIGITECH multi-effects pedal! I know it isn't top of the line or anything, being the RP155 model, but IT is blowing me away with AWESOME f/x and power! I could not ask for more (at this moment). It even has a drum loop, and 20 sec. recorder/looper!
  My music is about to take on a whole new level of excitement for you and me!

  THANK YOU ALL for being here for my
music and I!



I haven't been able to pull myself away from playing with it long enough
to get it recording (I know, I said "playing with it")!
