Who else will have tribute deck?



  • chuck has a tribute board with some brand over here on the east he skates burnside alot and the mcrad band plays alot of shows here in bmore
  • I'd love to see them live, he's one hell of a musician.  Dreamin' is one of my favorite albums, it has a mix of everything....and he played almost all of the instruments, plus singing.

    And Absence is a skate staple, as far as I am concerned.  It's like 80s skater 101....you must have Absence of Sanity, Golden Shower of hits, Minor Threat, and Suicidal.  That and agree that duct tape is a perfectly acceptable "shoe repair"...and worn shorts over sweat pants and t-shirts over sweaters, not for the look but for the function.

    my friend steph from here in the bmore area is good friends with the mcrad crew and chuck comes out to some of the events im a part of sometimes
  • I like that poolside deck, looks like a good shape and comes in 8.5.....I might have to try one.

    Next time you see Chuck, ask him to tab out Weakness.  I'm a drummer by nature, but I like messing around on my Fender....just riffing and stuff.  I would love to see the tabs for Weakness, always my favorite punk riff.  Oh, and thank him for his contributions to music from a huge fan.  Maybe give him a quick kiss on the cheek.

    haha ill see what i can do u can also find them on facebook and myspace here is a vid i found
  • Actually, I may have found it.....seems tabbed correctly.  But the problem is....well, I suck...so it's hard for me to tell if it's correct.  Sounds right, as long as I can time it out better.

    Any guitarists in the house want to try it out and see how it sounds to you...

  • Awesome video Bill.  I've been a huge Chuck fan since hearing Weakness in the rubber boys segment.  Big fan of the guy, what a musician.

    he reminds me of virgil from wwf well just try and play with it and see if it matches up
  • It sounds right....but I'm not a good enough of a guitarist to make it sound perfect.  Every riff I learned sounds like the right notes/chords, and the timing is correct....I just don't have the technique to make them sound perfect enough for me to say "Yes, that's it.".

  • well im a bassist so i cant exactly help lol
  • I've been listening to Absence of Sanity nonstop lately.  I wish I could get the song (Chuck T. or McRad?) that is played in Ban This during the Cab/McGill vert session.  Love that song.
  • I've been playing guitar in bands for years Chris, and your weakness tabs spot on mate.
  • check u tube for the song
  • LOL Bill.....a drummer is asking a bassist if a guitar tab is correct.  That's awesome.

    Sk8er, I'm with you about Ship on the water....great song, and would have fit perfectly on Dreamin'.  I'm sure he has a ton of music recorded that we have never heard, or maybe only caught glimpses on the videos.  I wish he would release more of his own music, he's an incredible artist.

    Boner, thanks.  Now I need to learn how to play it better...LOL. 

    I picked up a guitar a few years ago because I hadn't played drums in a while and wanted to play something.  Timing wise, I am fine.....it's technique that I have...well, I have no technique so I suck.  A few months ago I de-tipped my index finger on my fret hand with a hatchet.  So I have no feeling in that tip, but it is very tender.  That has made things more difficult to play, and I suck to begin with.  But I recently got a new drum set and have been playing more drums anyway.  Now I like to record myself playing power chords and riffs, then play the drums to it.  It's actually a lot of fun because I can just riff all day long, and looping it while playing drums to it is a blast.
  • i quit playing guitar because i broke the strings too much so i started taking up bass guitar and been playing forever. i try to play drums once in a blue moon im friends with alot of musicians so i try to play drums whenever i get the chance.

  • My favorite board I ever skated on was the Ray Barbee ragdoll kicknose!! Wish I could get a re-issue one of those. That or the Hawk medallion full size. Cause I'm kind of a big guy
  • edited May 2012
    You can still get the ragdoll new for less 200ish

    with new trucks & wheels as well!
  • I mastered the air guitar & drums.. thats bout tit

  • Yeah I saw some ragdolls but the one's I've seen have the spoon nose. Saw a hawk medallion mini which I couldn't really see a difference in it and the full size. The one I found that looked similar to the barbee mini was the Saiz feathers mini. They need to just come out with the whole old catalog of re-issues!! Would make this searching alot easier!! If you see any kick nose barbee's for sale send me a link!!
  • Grabke should get one.
    Im not sure what the circumstances were when he left pp, he certainly has a fan base thats international though.
