Re: WTF Are The Modes?!

I made this in my effort to understand modes. I think it's correct. It is all the modes of the C Major scale. The first note of each scale is blue the second note in the scale is red, etc. It illustrates the interval differences of each mode, which I think is what gives them their individual feel (m...

Re: Dredging Up Some (From The Depths Reviews)

The Overambitious - The manufactured instrument sound is generally a turnoff for me, but this worked. I feel like the vocal harmonies in the chorus didn't mesh as well as they could have. Step Aside - Really started out with a 'Every Rose has a its thorn' vibe, so I was all set to listen to it in a ...

Re: Awesome Music (related) Videos

Everybody else in the world was probably already aware of Rob Scallon, but I just found him. His musical madlibs videos have convinced me that complaining about shitty title prompts is for weaklings. ( combined with finding out Rivers Cuomo's lyrics are piles of nonsense)

Re: 28/9/16 Where are you?

Way back in the late '80s I spent some time helping a friend work on a piece of undeveloped property in Alaska. I spent a lot of time whining about the mosquitos and other assorted bugs that were eating me. Making the 2 hour drive to the grocery store was a big exciting day. btw the town with the gr...

Re: Music Podcasts

'No Guitar is Safe' is a really great podcast for guitar nerds. The host interviews players from his perspective as a working guitarist - and jams a little too. The first episode was Joe Satriani, one of the early episodes was Guthrie Govan -- he is great - really worth a listen. https://itunes.appl...

That just means you should use Nur Ein to start the BLT sensitive GuyNGuitar phase like Mark Walberg at the end of Rock Star. Or the BLT self indulgent Jazz phase like Sting or Brian Setzer

Music for Misanthropes?

I've been trying to come up with an albums worth of ( fairly easy to learn) songs that feel like these:

Radiohead - Creep
Doors - People are Strange
Fleetwood Mac - Oh Well

Any others ????

Re: 5/27/15 Jimi Hendrix

Voodoo Child (Slight Return) is amazing, and moving. I'm crazy about Little Wing too, but some time in the 90s I swear it got remixed for CDs or something and now has an annoying xylophone 'DING' throughout. ( I don't think its a harmonic) It kinda kills my enjoyment of it now a days. Was that there...

Re: 5/8/15 The Who

I think Behind Blue Eyes is the best epic rock song ever. Stairway to heaven is the shining archetype but BBE has all the elements and more timeless lyric. The acoustic intro with voc harmonies and the crashing (windmill)guitar in the chorus are great. lyrics like "if my fist clenches crack it open ...

Re: New Interactive Video for Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone"

I think at least some of it was acted out for the project. On his podcast Marc Maron ( ch 132 ) mentioned that he was part of it. He looks like he is expressing the lyrics beyond lip sync. damn the logistics of this thing must have been mind boggling. The money and time behind it... Can a living leg...
