RE: Favorite Music Thread !


I have always contended that ?if? the song is a good one and ?if? the players are good THEN it doesn't matter what Rhythm or Instrumentation you use.  It will still be as good as the Original.

Only on the back beat, Em(E), and the way I've been feeling, it's only a toe that will be rockin'.

Too quiet around this place, gots to try to liven it up a bit. Stumbled over this, and thought there is still a part of me that resembles this, if only in my mind.

Hmmmmmmmmm ??? there might have been a few things in there that I remember. confuse

Em(I), let's just say that more than likely we are both fortunate to breathe free air and put our britches on by ourselves.

Speaking of the BACK BEAT, I learned that early in my childhood and also had the PLEASURE of watching Jeff Hanna instruct the audience at Red Rocks how to do it.

The boy is purty good. I had a friend who got into the restaurant business with a "club" that they tried to get off the ground. They had pretty varied and eclectic tastes, and they called me to build them a low platform stage that would be good in accentuating the footwork of flamenco dancers. I wound up doing the stage, and it worked surprisingly well, and I also worked out some improvements to the acoustics in the room. Well, their first act, the opening of the "club" was a flamenco act, and I don't know where they found those folks, but they were astounding. This all brings me to the point of their lead guitarist; I think he must have had twenty fingers on each hand, and he definitely knew how to make them work a guitar. It has to be genetic, I don't think one could learn that to that level of excellence.

I woke up this morning - it was still morning, barely - to "classic country" music channel playing in the house from the TV in the living room, folks like Mel Tillis, Tammy Wynette, Charlie Pride, and others. Back in the late sixties and seventies, during my ten year excursion into the white collar world, I drove my office mates nuts with that genre of music; most of them were sort of "hippy/beatnik" types and their music of choice was one or another variety of rock, and we were always feuding over the radio. To be honest, I only did it to aggravate them, 'cause I like just about any kind of music done well, but getting one or another of them to foaming at the chops over the music was entertaining.

"I Sang Dixie" by Dwight Yoakam  is playing right now.

Later.
