I'm not a player, (fingers not too agile at 70+ years) but I enjoy writing music and putting into a digital workstation (Reason). I've seen lots of chord progressions, but never with the dominant 7 added to all and the maj7 added to the ending I chord. It really adds richness. Also finding the info on using the different chord types to be most helpful. Great series. Thank you!

While visiting Big Bend National Park, we stayed in Terlingua, TX at the Chisos Mining Co. Motel in a cabin we named "The Pink Palace". Here's a flight over the grounds of the property. Yes, this is the desert.

On a visit to Big Bend National Park this summer I flew my Phantom I with Hero 3+ over the Tuff (compressed volcanic ash) Canyon. Stabilized footage in Premiere Pro CS6.

Would love to know what FPV Monitor mount you are using on the controller. Could you please post? Thanks!

My latest production in Reason 8. Here was my self-imposed challenge. To produce a "Reason"able song without playing any melody, chords or accompaniment on the keyboard. And, without entering any notes manually into Reason. Linda came up with a great title for it...Mumbo Jumbo. And, there is a contemporary little twist toward the end.

As participants in the MHPC Photo Critique Group, Linda and I went to Silveira Lake in our neighborhood and photographed it. The subject of this challenge is "The Drought". Since this lake was once a quarry, it still has some deep water, but much of the shallower areas are either dry or mud flats. Slide show (using Premiere Pro CS6) set to music of David Arkenstone ironically titled "Light of the Water" from the album "The Celtic Book of Days". Be sure to watch it in HD.

Visited Death Valley pre-drone ban and shot this with Hero 3+ on Phantom I with Zenmuse 3H-2D gimbal. Warp stabilized in Premiere Pro CS6. It's a little unearthly. Best viewed in HD.

Great Video. Haven't bought one yet. But, a tip I learned looking at DJI video was to turn on the Hero 3 BEFORE powering up the Phantom (gimble) so you aren't fighting the H3 2D to turn on the camera. ;o) Happy flying!
