  1. Yes! I was just listening to this, yesterday: [video=youtube;WyGJihZ_02M]
  2. I never heard of "Yacht Rock", so I looked it up. It seems to have occurred during a period of time when I had developed an intense disdain for popular culture. I still harbor those feelings. That is not intended to be a slam toward anyone's tastes, just my choice. Even though it is not from that era, it seems that "Sloop John B" should be on the list. I like that song.
  3. [QUOTE=Hoddy;n32527482][URL="https://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/music/singer-leon-redbone-dies-69-n1012041?cid=sm_npd_nn_fb_ma&fbclid=IwAR3SDi6n8c7hdhN5OsHgIvVSjTBVyG-JquUR-qAfCvVLkhkpasglToHNW_Y"]https://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/...hkpasglToHNW_Y[/URL] I always liked him.:([/QUOTE] Me too. I got to see him once, many years ago. [video=youtube;F6d1-k2p1Ck]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6d1-k2p1Ck[/video] Wow! I just read the article, he was much younger than I thought, only five years older than me. That really is a shame.
  4. Zydeco, Tejano, Klezmer, all great sounds that use accordions. I have been listening to a lot of BGKO lately, great stuff. [video=youtube;8ipevHQJ1IQ] [video=youtube;YuARnfAMwqA]
  5. I have a Squier Jazz bass that is very bright, twangy, like a piano. But my favorite is my Rogue "beatle bass" with tape wounds. The fundamentals come through strong and clear, more like the sound of distant heavy artillery or dynamite.
  6. Some people can hear very low frequencies. I can hear 30Hz clearly through my MDR-7506 headphones, but it doesn't really sound like music, more like a cat purring (for lack of a better analogy). Somewhere just above 40Hz it starts to come together as a musical note. I think it depends on how our minds have been conditioned to interpret sensory input. By 12kHz, I hear nothing. I have three different bass guitars and I cannot tell you if the B or E are in tune, without an electronic tuner. Some people enjoy how low frequencies feel. No, I'm not talking about that girl that used to call you late at night. It is an important element of the theater experience.
  7. Mikeo mentioned Squirrel Nut Zippers: [video=youtube;3al8MISWwPk] I also like The Hot Sardines: [video=youtube;Q4-XIKt-ADs] and Tuba Skinny: [video=youtube;_ZdMxFiUf9Q]
