    Hi!

    Go ahead! Do it. Doit. Just... do it. DOIT! doitdoitdoitdoit!

    Glenn Gould sold me on Bach. Before I heard this recording below, Bach seemed too mathy. Too sciencey, not musicy enough. I was wrong then. Luckily 25 years ago I figured that out. Yes, it is math, like a snowflake is. Or the chaos of veins in a leaf. It's God's math. Adding up to nirvana. I never forget to refill my resources with this recording.

    Always.

        Righteous Buddha sounds great. How can you go wrong? Organ driven music?

              I have an extensive backlog of songs I've been meaning to post in these threads. This one recently reminded me that how a lyric sounds can be more important than what it means.



              Now some they do and some they don't
              And some you just can't tell
              Some they will and some they won't
              And some it's just as well


              ^That is bloody brilliant, while meaning absolutely nothing at all.

                Supertramp was the soundtrack to my summer after sixth grade.

                      The State of Funk, 1970

                      Why did Miles choose funk? What did Miles think funk was? Did Miles actually play funk? Is the music he made in that period successful when judged against more popular definitions of funk? Does Miles have a legacy in funk?

                          E.C.'s "Almost Blue," sung by Marc Jordan.

                            Notes from my guitar lesson this week.

                            "In a free, modal composition a lot of people feel the need to overplay, and sadly, I'm one of them. When you're playing over a chord progression, there's a melodic shape you can use as a guide, and refer back to, but with a modal thing you really have to focus and edit to make sure you're not just wanking endlessly."
                            "Was there anyone doing the modal thing before Miles Davis?"
                            "Sure. If you think of the 12 tone row as a mode the whole Second Vienna School/Serialism guys were doing that. You've got your set of available notes and you just keep cycling through them till you get to the end. And in a much shorter way, if you think of bebop tone clusters as a mode, Charlie and Dizzy were certainly doing that."

                            We spent the rest of the lesson trying to come up with a hipper guitar part to replace the unhip piano in Lookin For Love. After listening to me play a bunch of jazzy variations, and trying a few things on the piano, he said "eh, the piano's fine. It's foundational - what's the harmony, where's the one, that kind of thing".

                              Alt-country + flamenco. Weird, but it works.
