Title: So... what are you currently listening to ?
Post by: Dan Graves on September 14, 2011, 05:33:33 pm
Before i start this thread, a request to all users posting here : no more than 3 posts per user per day in this thread, please.
This shouldn't become a post count padding thread !!, i'm making this as a means to see what everyone else listens to throughout the day.

I'm currently listening to a song some of our Belgian members might know : Kris De Bruyne - Vilvoorde City

The new Alice Cooper cd when I'm in the car, not allowed radio or music in work !! I honestly think it's the best thing he's done in years & my fave is probably Last Man on Earth

that "city" is practicly my back yard :p
 "Amsterdam" by the same guy is never skipped. I always use the 4 opening lines when somebody asks about Amsterdam and what to do there etc... and only a few get it :p

I have my little ipod shuffle for work always nearby and I really dig the live version of "since I've been loving you" by led zeppelin these days. I just came back from a business meeting with a client and cursed loud as the radiostation didn't play the solo from "hotel california"

Oh, so you're one of those people responsible for all the political trouble in the Belgian formation talks ?  ;D
Jokes aside, my dad used to play 'Amsterdam' a lot when i was a kid, never really liked it until i got older and came to understand it better.

 Learning the song, came across this version.  Patti Smith breaks my heart she is so xx--xx beautiful.  And there's that word "authentic".

"I held you in my arms.  You were so young and small in my arms.  And I imagined you racing through a bright green field.   I imagined you walking from star to star.  I could feel you swimming in the bluest sea.  I wanted you to be running instead of me"

Neil Young.  Helpless.  With Patti Smith and guests.

Listening to Doc & Merle Watson's "Pickin' the Blues" (1985) - I've never been big on blues but this is really nice.

What else I've listened to today?
Well..:
Antoine Dufour (Sound Pictures - 2011)
Chet Atkins & Doc Watson (Reflections - 1980)
The Drills (We Bring The Rock 'N' Roll - 2011)
Evans Blue (Evans Blue - 2009)
Led Zeppelin (Led Zeppelin I - 1969)
Ricky Skaggs (Country Boy - 1984)
Tommy Emmanuel & The Australian Philharmonic Orchestra (Classical Gas - 1995 & seeing Tommy on the 19th this month!)
Tony Rice (Cold On The Shoulder - 1984)

And I listen to a lot of Brad Paisley these days, but not as much as my girlfriend does now. :P

Somewhat of an eclectic 'playlist'. ;D
There have been a few loose songs here and there though (like Funk #49, American Woman, Lola, etc. because I think they're fun)

a lot actually (if you are doing a 2h17m run, you hear a lot of songs music :) )

Thanks to TB-AV, I'm quite into Roy Buchanan lately but also The doors do great on my iPod because of the long songs.
For keeping the tempo Prodigy and Orbital still do the trick!

besides all that, I could listen to "Since I've been loving you" by LedZep all day ("the song remains the same" version)

'Last Matador of Bayonne' , by Joe Bonamassa; from his excellent album: 'Dust Bowl'.

........... I can't get that track out of my head lately. The guitar work, from the very first strains of the gentle intro, picks you up and carries you, right through to the end.

I can't remember when there was an artist who was so prolific and yet so consistently original as Bonamassa has been over the last few years. Can't wait to see him in March.

Edit: After just reading a great little piece on how that track came about, mention must be made of the trumpet work by Tony Cedras. Talk about giving a track atmosphere.

Happy Jack, if you ever want to hear Ben Andrews in an intimate no production recording session Mapleshade has a CD.

You can listen to a sample.

http://mapleshaderecords.com/cds/56962.php

It's a house up in Maryland. the guy that owns it is an engineer. He gets a bad rap from many engineers because he sells "snake oil" cables and such. He also records raw. no compression and such, just performance to tape.

the CD's are good. they are not to everyone's liking but I'll tell you something.... when I heard that link you posted .... and I didn't even remember the guys name.... but I recognized the personal style and looked this. This new stuff is over produced. But I suppose it sells too.

Anyway if you ever want to hear raw talent captured that Mapleshade stuff is it.

Check out this Clifford Jordan track. and that's an mp3. The CD you can hear everything.
http://mapleshaderecords.com/cds/mp3s/cliffordjordanlive1.mp3

I mean you hear foot taps, finger clicks, dynamics, pads closing on the sax, chair squeaks, mic proximity from artist moving, it's all in there. Again, a lot of people feel that stuff needs to be engineered out and in many respects, rightfully so but I find it really interesting.

Little Afro Cuban world beat. http://mapleshaderecords.com/cds/mp3s/enriquillowinds1.mp3

This track must have 20 - 25dB of dynamic range... http://mapleshaderecords.com/cds/mp3s/sunnylandslim2.mp3
The typical song these days has 4 to maybe 6db.

Post by: misterg on March 13, 2012, 12:55:34 am
Man... that guy must have cash-ola is all I can say.

He's a session musician / producer. To be fair to him, he bought one of the 'Wrecks new from Ken Fisher, before they became legendary, and he's had that old Gibson a looong time. I guess the recent Trainwreck must have cost him a pretty penny, though.

He can play a bit, too ....

Title: Re: So... what are you currently listening to ?
Post by: TB-AV on March 13, 2012, 03:10:23 am
Yep! he can play. Yeah, I've known about him for a long time. Posted his links several times.

I was just thinking about the second wreck. Granted he may only have $5K in his old amp and guitar. but if he had to pay full price for that new(old) one, that's a lot of money to own two of the same amp.  Of course like you say, he writes it all off anyway so why not.

speaking of which, I'm not religous either but if there is one man who could convince me, it would be Johnny Cash :) .
when I sing his song "man in black"; I replace the "Jesus" with "Johnny" or "Jimi"
I wear the black for those who never read,
Or listened to the words that Johnny said,
About the road to happiness through love and charity,
Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me.

yeah close the whole "Cold Fact  album is great but dont listen to it more than twice or youll be hooked, seen him live in 1998 in johannesburg South africa, and met him after the show and he autographed the CD cover of the cold fact album for me, nice guy as well, on a side note he apparently was a Mayor in some USA town dont know which town, he made 2 albums and then retired from the music scene.

it was rumoured that he had died , which wasnt the case, he had left the music scene has he did not make a break through and went into politics, somehow in late 1990 s he heard that hes music was huge in South africa and so decided to tour.

@misterg,  Thanks for the pointer to the Cardiacs.  Never heard them before, but I'm a fan now too.  Where have I been?  Will have to try to work throught the list. 

I found this quote in Wikipedia: "one Cardiacs song contains more ideas than most other musicians' entire careers."

Jeez, I had that single waaay back when, wore the vinyl out I think, what a cracking sound, seemed like they remained a bunch of freaks. Couldn't get into anything else of theirs, they sounded like Robert Fripp - if he'd grow up on a council estate, and was into meth.

Never saw this vid before, I think it was before such things were everywhere and mandatory.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DbJX92TDhA

ANYONE: Do you know the main riff to This is The Life? I could probably work it out if any of the vids showed it properly, but they don't.

Otherwise, listening to heaps of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Never got into him before, a few tracks that initially turned me off him, I preferred by others, like Gary Moore.

But I happened upon Pride and Joy and it went from there. xx--xx, he was good. Flasher than a rat with a gold tooth, but has jaw dropping technique, a distinctive sound, and plays some wonderfully addictive blues.

Can I play too?

Over the last month or so, I have been getting into some local live music.  At the moment, I am listening to a live compilation album recorded at a concert 12 months ago.

The acts?

The Silverado's (saw them again last night at a local pub) - They are a Rock'n'roll/rockabilly act (leaning more towards rock'n'roll)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUzx9khoGFk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUzx9khoGFk)

The Saucerman - again, another  Rock'n'roll/rockabilly act (this time leaning more towards rockabilly)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZMSBo6AZ28 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZMSBo6AZ28)

And Finally, Lucky Seven Swing - these guys play what I call 'pre-rock'.  A bit of Jump Blues, swing but also into rock'n'roll
An older youtube promo clip:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm5b9DIQgKQ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm5b9DIQgKQ)

The cool thing about all these acts, even though they are playing older genre's, is they still write and perform there own stuff.

I know, it's not the shredding stuff that many will post here, but it is what I am into!

Cheers

Mermaid Avenue - Billy Bragg & Wilco


I'd not heard it in ages and it sounded as fresh and exciting today as the first time I heard it how ever many years ago it was

if you've never heard it do yourself a big favour and go listen - now


track 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhe9tVARzCk)
track 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qqedFPZVbg)

I've been listening to the 1970 interview of John Lennon by Rolling Stone magazine (free on iTunes).  The interviewer asks John if he's a good guitarist.  He says he's not bad; that he can make a guitar growl, but he's nothing like BB King.  Yoko pipes in to say that Clapton thinks John is good.  John compares guitar playing to film making and describes himself as a Cinéma vérité (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cin%C3%A9ma_v%C3%A9rit%C3%A9) guitar player.

The discussion ends with John saying that the song "I Found Out" moves along pretty good.

Number of the Beast, decided to try to transcribe the whole CD.  After getting stuck on the Invaders solo modified the plan to try to get through just the rhythm guitar parts first.

Children of the Damned done so two down the rest to go.

So where does a 48 year old head banger find a group of guys to jam on Maiden tunes in the Midwest.

Final Cut (live version on youtube) by Coheed and Cambria

I re-tuned down and was playing about with Em pentatonics and realized why a drop D project I've been working on didn't sound quite right. I wanted a similar feel to jam to.

They're using the I and III, four measures of 6/4 for each. It's not a blues (like I was thinking) I, IV, V and that's why the C* sounds so good.

Time to revise my project this weekend. Oh, and I'm also pretty stoked that I figured this out.

Post by: TB-AV on June 02, 2012, 02:56:13 pm
1 2 3 4 5 6 = 6/8 = that song

6/4 would sound more mechanical. with a backbeat snare it would "sound" like  1 2 3 4 5 6

6/8 sways back and forth with a 2 beat.  6/4 would sound like it had 3 beats ( more or less ). But a steady driving one way ticket so to speak.

The fact that the beat is slow in your song makes no difference. It's the back and forth 1 2 1 2 left right back forth 1 2 3 4 5 6  that defines it.

...and this one too. She is writing some really nice music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rvr0FkE_iq8

@ NJDizzle: Man I can hear an Andy Timmons influence in some of your playing.
Been poking around Youtube watching some of his stuff.

Some of his faster licks remind me of Chris Poland, like the end of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwH85PjDbhY&feature=related (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwH85PjDbhY&feature=related)

First thing that jumped out at me from the wikipedia article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Timmons) on him was this:
Quote
Andy Timmons (born 26 July 1963) is an American guitarist who has played in the bands Danger Danger, Pawn Kings, and Andy Timmons Band (ATB). He has also released several solo albums and has worked as a session guitarist.

Danger Danger?  :o

I'd just brushed them off as a second rate Glam metal band.

Yeah art i love his playing, so much style and melody and most of all is the feeling he gives off in his playing and he has so many different ways to approach the same piece of music where as in some of our heros do love to play those same old blues licks! but i absolutely love them too :)

Never been a big stones fan. Bought 40 licks, but it's got every track you've heard a million times on the radio

But a lot of stones people put Exlie on main st at the top of their Stones albums.

It quite brilliant, and barely a hit on it.

Thanks. I did go over samples on iTunes, but LIB didn't really grab me. Must have a listen to BB though.

I realise there's a lot of mythology around the Exile album, but just listening to it on its merits without that baggage, Keefs playing is just wonderfully cool and loose and he plays all sorts of styles, yet sort of makes them his own. Just a swag of great songs too.

Currently listening to the oddest setlist ever.  "Larry the Drummer" and I are on a mission from God (maybe Satan, not really sure) to get the band back together.  And apparently not caring if we ever get hired by anyone to play anywhere, ever, we have started on a "songs we likes" schizophrenic playlist as follows:

Tush - ZZ Top
La Grange - ZZ Top
Decadence Dance - Extreme
(It's a) Monster - Extreme
Invaders - Iron Maiden
Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden
Gimme Three Steps - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Rock-n-Roll - Led Zeppelin
Are You Gonna Go My Way - Lenny Kravitz
Young Lust - Pink Floyd

So I have dutifully burned a set list audio CD (I have an old, old car that doesn't speak MP3), and am listening the crap outta these tunes.

Cue, if you are going to learn Jazz and Bossa you need to watch this entire video if you have not already done so.

She was one of the best taught by the best.

I have seen that video, actually. I don't know who gave it to me, might just have been you. :P

I've found myself diving head first into jazz and actually going for it with learning the jazz standards and incorporating Justin's chord grips as well as a few I've found myself.

Bossa is very nice too. But I'll go jazz first, I reckon Bossa would then be a little bit easier to learn as well.

Thanks for the video, I'm watching it again. ;)

Of course, if I wanted to do it right I would have posted this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWfsp8kwJto) instead of Jo Stafford's Autumn Leaves.

My "go to album/CD" at the moment is Anson Funderburgh and the Rockets Handy Award winning "Sins".....Particularly the "A Man Needs His Lovin'",cut....

For those not familiar with Anson,or the Rockets,it's "Texas Swing Blues",style.....Anson is one of the less is more guitarists,in kind of a B.B. King sort of way.......

Not sure which,either Paladia or AXSTV,(Access Tv),both cable channels, play a Lindsey Buckingham concert,from fairly recent times,I think....I never was much of a Fleetwood Mac fan,after they moved from hardcore blues into mainstream commercial music,which is when Lindsay played with them.....That said,he is an amazing guitarist and that concert is a blast to watch/hear....It pops up,in their rotation,every couple of months or so....

Tell me about it ......... Used to love wandering into town, wandering around the record shops browsing through the racks full of vinyls and then taking myself and my latest finds to the alehouse for a couple before wandering home to a few more and a session with my stereo. HMV used to have a massive floor full of 12" vinyls......... if you were being really thorough, you could have been there an hour and a half mooching through it all ...... And you'd still have Backtracks and Probe Records up Button Street to get to yet....... Then later there was Hole in the Wall in School Lane......... I remember getting my 'Choose Your Masques' and 'Church of Hawkwind' there........

....... And now it seems HMV is to become a thing of the past......... real shame.......

I remember my first cd perfectly: Marillion, 'Misplaced Childhood' ........ Still got it...... Still looks new, except for the jewel case  ;D

The Stone Roses, The Beach Boys, Love, The Byrds, Jesus and Marychains, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and The Charlatans.

For any non UK people I reconmend The Stone Roses. Although they only released two albums. There first is concidered all time great British album is very Hendrixy and Byrds inspired. There second album is a mix of guitar pop, blues, dance, funk and folk. John Squire is such a vasty underrated guitarist.

The Stone Roses, The Beach Boys, Love, The Byrds, Jesus and Marychains, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and The Charlatans.
Forever Changes by Love is my favourite album.

At the moment,Hound Dog Taylors "Gimme Back my Wig"...

For those who may be unaware,Alligator Records was begun expressly to get Hound Dog on record......He had 6 fingers on his fret hand that,in theory,allowed him to do more than you or I can...Heavily relying on distortion,he used cheap Montgomery Ward guitars and amps,believing those gave him the best levels of distortion......

I used to watch him play in a crappy little pub,just a couple hours south of Chicago,back around 1970-71,when I was just 17.....Too bad I didn't have the presence of mind,then,to fully appreciate him....

Also, a completely overlooked Floyd album - Animals. The album cover seemed to be everywhere back in high schools, and I can honestly say I never gave it a listen til last week, despite Dark Side being one of my top 5 albums. Glad I did, some terrific work from Wright and Gilmour on there.

They came to talk with us after the concert and they are not only great musicians but also a nice people. I really wish them a great success, they deserve it. Unfortunately Spain is not the best country for a rock band.

Check them out, I think you won't regret it.

Yeah, I dunno.  I heard it.  Sorry, like the original better.   :'(

Montrose, that's just over in the next valley!  That's where the motel looks out on the drive in theater.  In the summer you can rent a motel room and watch the drive-in movie from the comfort of your room.  They even pipe in the sound.

Never done that.  Maybe someday.

A friend had tipped me off to Mark Knopfler's "Privateering". It arrived today, brand new vinyl, and I just listened to it all the way through.

This is unreal.

I'm still buzzing.

I probably should amend my recent list of guitar heros. I loved his stuff before, but this album, for all it's apparent simplicity, is just beyond.

I would love to see Justin do a lesson of one of this songs (though i will not be able to play this in the next 5 years i think <g>). I mean "Hold on love" and his cover of "Iron horse" are simply outstanding.

Laurie has many finely-honed talents, and started out as a comedic duo with Stephen Fry. They played a lot of music back then. To many Brits, it was more of a culture shock to see him do straight TV drama. With a yank accent.

Title: Re: So... what are you currently listening to ?
Post by: Dan Graves on May 17, 2013, 03:17:18 pm
@ Drubbing : unlike most Americans (and i use that term loosely, as i'm not exactly an American, with my Dutch/Jewish/Indonesian background and all that), i actually grew up with British TV shows; my parents loved them.
I'm no stranger to Laurie's roles in Blackadder, A Bit of Fry and Laurie (saw Laurie play piano there, and i seem to remember a guitar song), Jeeves and Wooster, The Young Ones, etc, and as i said, i'd known for some time he was well versed in quite a number of instruments, from several interviews with him and with Stephen Fry.

I wasn't aware he was this well on his way to also becoming a famed singer/musician though, he's actually doing a number of live performances across the globe, and that is how i found out about his albums; when a friend of mine asked me if i wanted to go see Laurie perform in Amsterdam, i thought she was asking me to accompany her to a play or musical...
So i was reluctant, until she simply turned on Spotify and let me listen to his first album, and told me 'this is what he'll be doing'.
Guess how long i needed to say yes ?  ;D


@TB-AV : ahw damnit, i missed all that.
I'd wish i could just get some of the major U.S. stations here, so i could follow at least some of the talkshows, or stuff like The Big Bang Theory.

cause i finaly got my justinguitar songbook somedays ago :-) and the first song, i am learning from it, is "walk the line" from johnny cash ...
i created myself a youtube playlist, with over 30 versions of I Walk The Line (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfvMseK8igT0PF6QBOlXc4_Oe3oucY85L), cash originals, live and studioversions, covers from other famous musicians and nonames ... to get that song really into my head i just play it randomly for example when i surf in the net like now or use it as playalongs
also, because i teach myself to play "Greensleeves (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVwYQvHucq7iWwNKBoo4ALuNJM3aqDevU)" just from notation, i have a playlist with over 70 versions of that tune on youtube and listen to that a lot too

i always do that when i learn a new tune  - listen to it a lot - probem, when i finaly can play it, i cant hear it anymore, but some month or weeks later its fun again and so i think its a good method

The oldies are absolute classics ........ but if you really want to listen to a great ELO album, try one of my all time favourites: "Time". If you even only listen to one track on the entire album, make sure it's "The Way Life's Meant To Be".

ELO

there's an amusement park near where I live that has a big tent set up with a spider ride inside that's painted with glow in the dark paint.  There's a light show that plays while you ride the ride, and they play ELO's fire on high.

It's awesome.

You made me look!  My oldest brother had the greatest hits album on vinyl (still does actually).  I wouldn't be suprised if there were no grooves left in it, after the hammering we gave it 30 years ago.

Just on the side, I was talking to one of the older women in my office the other day about music - she saw them in Australia back in the day - she told me that at the time she thought it was an awesome show, just like the record....(the rumour was that they were indeed lip syncing - not sure if that was true or not.)

BTW, I am currently listening to that album:

Tommy Emmanuel - Album Little by Little,

I honestly love that album. Saw him live in 2011 and that got me hooked, to that album in particular.

I never bothered trying Spotify but I actually tried it a few days ago. Greatly enjoyed that 48 hours of Spotify Premium.

This is what I've listened (besides of what I have listened to before) to so far..:
Florida Georgia Line
Betsy Lane
Merle Haggard
Lisa Nicole
Adele
Norah Jones
Keane
Shoebox Things and Songbird Dreams
Tom Odell
Mumford & Sons
Christina Perri
Lonestar
Emerson Drive
Lee Brice
Zac Brown Band

Bit of a weird selection ain't it? :P
There's some stuff in there that my girlfriend listens to, some same-genre stuff I've been curious about or more 'mainstream' (not in a negative way) stuff I've been curious about. That, or it was recommended to me by either Spotify or Last.fm - pretty cool.

After having a bit of a play around with the song "Evil (Is Going On" as described in Justin's beginner song book (having a lot of fun with it at the moment!), I have dug out my copy of the Diesel (Johnny Diesel, Mark Lizotte or what ever you want to call him) and Chris Wilson album 'Short Cool Ones'.

This was one of my favourite albums from the late 90's and to be frank, still is today

Seriously, if you want a bit of gritty Howlin Wolf style blues, this is well worth a listen. 

Someone has kindly provided a playlist on youtube:

ZZ Top "Rancho Texicano".
I re-discovered this album when creating a new playlist full of 80'ties hard rock and stumbled upon ZZ Top. Not that it belongs to a hard rock playlist but I just couldn't resist it. After I picked up the guitar I seem to have found a new pair of ears which loves Billy Gibbons playing even better than in my pre-guitar days.

Saw him in 2011. It's amazing how he fills the venue with music, with just one guitar. I even got to see Jimmy Wahlsteen opening for him, he was great too.

It's a nice tune, I like the story behind it.

I really like the Little By Little album.

I'm listening to this currently: Ellie Goulding - Figure 8 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNpBahr49mA)

   Yep, I remember "All the Young Dudes".  A rock anthem.

Also from the 70's is Zappa and the Mothers', "Cosmik Debris".  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjPlhb4f9P8 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjPlhb4f9P8)

Some of the posts on fingerpicking and such made me think of "The Corries."  (Long time ago in Scotland.)

I did a YouTube browse and came up with this... in the old days everyone used to whistle (even the women).  I tried it recently and couldn't do it!  It's obviously not the same as riding a bike.

I think whistling started its downhill journey with Bryan Ferry in the '70s (love him, his voice, and Roxy Music... but let's face it, he couldn't whistle [in tune] to save himself).  So anyway, here's The Corries and some good old fashioned (in tune) whistling:

I do think whistling is like learning to ride a bike. But contrary to it you actually have to practice it. I can whistle but whistling melodies seems to be quite tricky.

I've always wanted to learn to whistle with my fingers, but I never got there. :P

The awesomeness of this song always gets me. He's telling you it's completely insincere and giving a songwriting lesson at the same time...and dammit if the song didn't do exactly what he said it would with radio airplay.

One of the most under appreciated bands of the 90s. So much talent there. PLUS Robert Williams did the cover for two of their albums. How cool is that?

this song isn't necessarily indicative of their style, but holy xx--xx it is awesome. They did a classical cover on each of their albums.

John has been on vocal rest since early 2012, so I'm guessing it might take him some getting used to singing again.

Paper Doll and Wildfire are the current singles from the album, released prior to release of the actual album. Very clever, getting people to buy their singles while they probably will buy their album. Seems to be a trend these days.

It's been a long time since I listen to Ben Harper. His voice always surprises me. It occurs to me that I never listen to his last stuff (Oups in fact since Diamonds on the Inside, release in 2003!). It seems I can't get into listening it, I'm worried to be disappointed, a,d that it will break the magic. I know, it's silly.

Any feedback on his last albums, with the relentless 7 ?

Well, a nickel is a nickel, a dime is a dime

Tell me how long, dear, do I have to wait ?
Can I get you now, dear, must I hesitate ?

Well now, the eagle on the dollar says "In God we trust"
You say you won't obey me, you wanna see that dollar first
How long, dear, do I have to wait ?
Can I get you now, dear, mm, must I hesitate ?

Lord, if the river was made of whiskey an' I was a duck,
I'd just swim to the bottom an' I'd never come up.
How long, dear, mm, do I have to wait ?
Why, can I get you now, dear, mm, must I hesitate ?

Now there's rocks down in the ocean and there's fish in the sea,
I know you mean the whole world to me.
How long, dear, must I have to wait ?
Can I get you now, dear, mm, must I hesitate ?

I got them Hesitation Stockings, I got them Hesitation Shoes,
Lord knows I got them Hesitation Blues.

I'm not a huge fan of all their songs, but every single note in every single song is exactly where it should be....every time.

From the videos I've seen, it looks like great concerts. I saw a youtube video from a guitar clinique he hosted, and he really surprised me in a good way. He doesn't know any music theory at all, but he is quite entertaining and shares a lot.

Just got their second covers CD the other day (that round thing your parents listen to...no, the shiny one). Every freakin track on it is awesome, but these two stand out for me. Everybody in that band is great, but Lzzy has one of the best voices that rock music has heard in decades.

You really have to hear them outside of youtube audio with a decent soundsystem. The first one preferably while driving at greater than advised speeds, and at a volume that will make thunder sound mild.

Punk? The Strypes are ol time Rhythm and Blues. Got the album. But, yeah, they've amped up that tune for that set. It's slower and more staccato on the LP.

They even played some gigs with Wilko Johnson from Dr Feelgood. They're right out of that british RnB era. Damn tight band and they're all 16-17. Do you hate them already?

This is my favourite off the album. No chord sheets for this anywhere, and my transcribing sucks, any ideas on the riff?

Scooter that was awesome. Whether it was punk or not is secondary. It's good stuff. Someone needs to call that one kid's nanna though, and let her know he's chewin gum like a cow on national TV.

Damn tight band and they're all 16-17. Do you hate them already?

Not really. I saw silverchair in their first US show back when they were the big thing. They were still too young to get into their own concert, but they rocked the xx--xx out of the place.

Man, I haven't listened to Ritchie Kotzen in years (as in, not since his Shrapnel/shredding days in the late 80s and early 90s).  I'm surprised to see where he's gone, but I'm really digging his newer stuff.  That tele sounds great with his fingers, and his singing is good, too.

He'll be playing about an hour's drive from me, next month.  I may go check that show out.

Title: Re: So... what are you currently listening to ?
Post by: Cue Zephyr on May 11, 2014, 05:31:45 pm
Sure is my kind of band and music. Thanks for the heads-up, hadn't heard of her before.

Her banjo sounds amazing. I don't really know how an openback played clawhammer style is supposed to sound, but whatever, it sounds great.

I agree, that mic is a bit bright. These days there's a U87 mod for that mic, it's supposedly really good.

ETA: I understand why I like it - she's a member of The Wailin' Jennys and really like what they do, despite not having listened much to them in a long time.

I never knew that. :P
I liked that Trentemoller track, thanks for sharing.

I suppose I'm coming at this style from the other end - in the earliest of my formative years I've listened to a lot of trance music and some of it's sister genres. I built up a preference for vocal trance or the more poppy trance. I was a big fan of Tiësto's earlier work, Armin van Buuren (quite like his current Intense album, to be honest), the earlier Dash Berlin material and OceanLab/Above & Beyond. There have been more that I forgot about by now.

That lasted until it was completely overthrown by, well, you know. I'm actually quite happy about that since it reformed and broadened my musical horizon beyond recognition.

I still enjoy some off and on listening of the outermost edge material of that trancy genre (although it's changed a lot), so I suppose that's why I like this, as it's a bit like dimmed-down trance.

I'm thinking about looking at the new content and all that jazz, so I thought it was just good manners to drop by real quick. Not that much of a forum-guy these days. Still not that much metal-related contend it seems it seems.

As for Mr Bowie (and/or his lawyers): It's a bit like getting knighted by the queen and then trying to get her for sexual harassment. The stupidity of having that pulled is over 9000. If there is ANYTHING cooler that could possibly have been done to the song than playing it earth's orbit, then I can't imagine it. What a douchenozzle.

Of course, Earl's playing is amazing, but check out that Douglas solo - he kicks it off sounding much like what Josh Graves did, and then breaks off into something that sounds completely Douglas. Mark plays a tasty solo as well!

Gallagher’s performance was held at Middlesex Polytechnic, where the Irish guitar virtuoso gave this relentless performance of “Do You Read Me”, off of his acclaimed 1976 album Calling Card.

I purchased a banjo head two days before the gig and I got it signed at the gig. By far the best signed item one can have, at least IMO. ;D

The atmosphere was a little better this time compared to last time - more people, more participation from the crowd, etc. She didn't even play much different songs (no new album out yet) aside form some covers and a different new song.

Usually I stop listening to the artist completely before the gig, but with Kacey Musgraves it was a little different both times i.e. I did listen before the gig and after too.

Oh and she congratulated us (the crowd) with defeating Mexico. ;D

which run through quite a lot of the songs he mentions in his history or the Delta Blues.

And here's a song called "I'm Going Where the Southern Cross the Dog," which, it is claimed, is the song that sparked WC Handy's interest in the blues. I doubt very much that that is the case, but it's an early example of the genre :

I went to school with that drummer. We went into school one morning and he and his family were coming out and we thought what the hell is going on. Are they hauling him off to jail or something? Then somebody said no he's leaving to go to Berklee. When's he coming back? He's not.

He used to play in this night club, alone, to records, underage, and they wouldn't let him out he was so good. He was also the most happy go lucky guy you could ever meet. He was always happy, always laughing and man he was just out there on the drums which also was just like some sort of natural high that he simply did. Not like any sort of "what is this"... he simply just seemed to do it.

I never realized at the time just how far out he was.


I also want to know what the hell Zorn eats... he's supposed to be 61 and looks like he's 40.

@ Cue : Corn Liquor by Hayseed Dixie is excellent.

Now, what i'm listening to...
This takes a little explanation.
I was having a discussion with a friend about how fake Christmas 'joy' and and all the other hogwash of that season feels to me, and being the music-oriented nutjob i am, i was struggling to find a song that captured the feeling i have whenever that season rolls around.
And then i remembered that Simon Viklund recorded a Christmas album for Payday 2 (a videogame) with Pete Gold, who does voice acting, voice-overs, commercials, comedy and other assorted stuff.
Pete reprised the roll of 'Hoxton' (a heister from the game) and sang a few songs, mostly just funny stuff, but there was one song that stuck out, because it expressed feelings very similar to mine, in a very clear and (to me) thought provoking way.

Naughty language in the song ahead ! Be warned ! NOT family friendly !





So, that's why i am listening to a christmas-themed song i the middle of summer.
I hope a few of you will listen to this song and actually get the message instead of instantly dismissing it as cynical hogwash  8)

One thing I really hate about him is that he completely disavows Soul Coughing. I hate when solo artists just toss aside the work that got them to a point where people would care about their solo artistry. Still, I have to admit that he is one of the best lyrics writers out there.

It isn't a guitar-based album, but I like her anyway. It's a brilliant record. You can already listen to the full album on NPR.

Different Shades of Blue by Joe Bonamassa. My favourite is the title track.  I like the addition of horns on some of the songs and the piano playing on So, What I Would I Do. I don't like the reverb effect on the vocals of Oh Beautiful and there is a bit too much shredding in some of solos.

By complete contrast, I have just got The Acoustic Album by Level 42. As the title suggests, it is acoustic versions of some of their old songs. I have wanted to  get this for ages but it was only available as part of a box set which I didn't want. There are some nice versions of their songs and some nice vocal harmonies. Some of the tracks have a bit of a samba vibe but it works. I want to try play some of these songs, when I have time.

Blackmore meets Beethoven - Difficult To Cure

This track popped up on the iPod the other day, no other reason other than I'm working through my digital music collection by song alphabetically. Think I last heard this about 20 odd years back but as the albums was released 30 years ago this month, seemed an appropriate to post.

This for those folk out there who think Classical music and the general 'rock' genre are worlds apart. Enjoy  :)





As this Live at the Budokan it takes a bit longer than the album before it lets rip. Would have posted a soundcloud link of the latter but not sure of copyright. Shame as you can hear the band laughing their asses off at the end of the track.

Barber's Adagio for Strings.

Struggling to find a decent youtube copy to post.

I first came across this piece of music when watching the film Platoon. Given the context at the time I found it really emotive. But have since listened to it in isolation but still find it one of the most haunting, evocative, emotional, awe inspiring pieces of music I have every encountered. Christ at 58 years of age it still brings me to tears! If you look at my bio

http://justinguitarcommunity.com/index.php?topic=1054.msg299673#msg299673

you'll see I'm I am a complete rock fiend but this one piece of music opened my ear up (again) to classical music and I've amassed a sizable collection since then.

The clips are taken from the film midway where it first appears and the outro hope you enjoy. Not the best cut  :(

Valse Triste, by Jean Sibelius.

This clip is from a 70's movie called Allegro Non Troppo, that used his music in the animation.

The music is basically about a mother dying on her bed, reliving her youth and happier times, before death comes to the door.

Awesome piece. This pained me when my Dad fell sick. He was a Classical music encyclopaedia. His 100s of CDs and LPs are mine, if I could just find somewhere to put them.

Last night I just TV on when the Roots started playing right after the intro I thought man they are smokin' tonight... then I looked up and there was this big guy playing bass and then they panned to some extra guys in the horn section. I didn't know who they were until he introduced them but man you could hear it.

Oh my gosh, I haven't heard Rancid in forever. My kids complain when I play them. :p

As the beginners course draws closer to the end for me I've found myself listening to the earlier AC/DC stuff, If You Want Blood (Live) being one of the most often albums as I'm picking up on the blues rythms in rock music more now. Doctor Doctor by UFO (and covered by Iron Maiden) is another one with that blues rythm in the verse to a degree.

This course and how it teaches how to play new things has opened my eyes quite a lot. Still plan to master Pretty Fly For A White Guy and Basket Case though :)

Re Aulde Lang Singe after restarting this was the 3rd or 4th song I learnt in Guitar For Dummies. Have the chord prog and strumming pattern if you need it. I'm sure you can the convert to power chords and crank out a metal version.

PM me if this would help, as I might be able to cut the section out of the Dummies pdf I have and mail it to you.

Never heard of this guy before but I like what I hear.

Not sure where you are from but if you wonder what he is singing about they are all part of the early settlement of America. Wanchese and Manteo were Native Indian leaders and basically friendly to Sir Walter Raliegh. But things changed and oddly enough Wanchese split but even after Manteo's Mother was killed by a mistaken attack on another tribe he stayed 'loyal' I suppose you could say.

If you look up The Lost Colony . It's all over by the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It's the inland part. In fact if you have ever heard of the show.  "Andy of Mayberry" .. Andy Griffith lived in Manteo.

It's a pretty historical place to be such a small area. You go across a bridge from the Manteo/Wanchese inland part and you are on the outer banks where The Wright Bros took flight and you are at the Graveyard of The Atlantic  where all the pirates hung out and all the ships sunk because of the waters there.  .. and it's all in a fairly small area of coastline.

So yet again a late night, today with Mr Slowhand himself. 1992 Clapton Unplugged, can't belief its 23 years after he lost his son





Anyway, as I type slowly while appropriately Mr C jams in the background, the acoustic Layla is playing. Such a change from the original high voltage hit. Sounds like a cracking jam a long track. Just need to work out the key, as my transcribing/ear's pants (add that to the consolidation list) 8)

Takes me back to the late 90's when I first started playing and could follow the Chord progression to the title track and my boss/friend/mentor Dennis Tuckerman played the lead elements with ease, as I focused soooo hard just to keep the rhythm going, jeez I sweated like a pig to stay in touch. ;D What gets me is the E shaped chords seemed ok back then but I'm still having difficulties now, having starting to learn again!  :'(

I saw my daughter and the grand kids off this morning from St Malo, heading back to the UK after a much welcome Xmas surprise visit.

The 45 minute journey to St Malo gave me the opportunity to play AC/DC's new album Rock Or Bust both going and again returning home. Although I was surprised by the relatively short tracks and album length (yeah I call it an album still as I'm an old un) at 35 minutes but this is pure vintage Acker Dacker which I assume Malcolm will be very proud!!!!!! Absolutely cracking and soon to be fed into Riffstation, to see whats going on  8)

Hi pt3r,

I liked the music. The lyrics just seem juvenile to me. I think swear words have largely lost their shock value.

Well yes the music sounded nice but the stringing together of **** and **** is indeed pretty childish. I saw some video's of their 'live' performances and it's boils down to one guy swearing into a mic while the other guy is just idling behind a laptop starting and stopping beats, swigging a can and smoking cigs. That's the aspect that made me look up the meaning of the word musician.  ;)

Yet again Planet Rock - Plays It In Full

Another classic but why does the UK need to be in a different time zone to the rest of Europe. Get with the program and let me listen to this sh$3 at a decent time of the day!!!

Anyway, while I'm tapping away on the forum, talking Lynyrd Skynyrd with Stitch.......background is the iconic Paranoid by Black Sabbath 1970 what an impact on a young 14 year old, life's never been the same since!!

It made quite an impact on another teenager's life over 20 years later. I can't quite remember how or why but I can remember listening to paranoid over and over. Pick up the needle, move it back. I think it was some kind of 70s rock compilation record.  Not too long before No More Tears came out.

Then again, I liked some of KISS' stuff too.

@Bad

When I look back I think I was lucky to be born in an era when this kinda stuff hit mainstream radio and charted. When the album and title single was released this kinda stuff was played on BBC Radio 1 and the independent Radio Luxembourg. By '68 the bstds at the beeb has managed to get the offshore broadcasters shutdown... Radio Caroline and Radio London lasted till '68 and I just about remember listening to them.

So for me what is now considered Classic Rock - Cream, Free, Tull, Purple and Sabbath plus Hendirx to name but a few were day to day plays on the radio. Can't see this type of music even featuring on mainstream 'radio' these days, they'd not get a look in over what I call factory pop aka sh£te!!

So for me as a 'young' teenager - most of my mates started apprenticeships at 15 or were working at 16 (me 17) - life was very different. You heard a single and if you could afford it you bought the album. And after the arrival of the cassette tape, maybe one of you bought the album and your mates recorded it on tape. I've still got cassette albums from the '70s as I relied on my older brother to buy the albums and his mates who to me were loaded - on £15 a week!!!!!!!!

Would these Icons of Rock get access to the factory regurgitated mainstream music that gets pumped out on 'independent' radio (read commercial radio and that says it all). I very much doubt it.

My time on this mortal coil is gonna be a damn sight shorter than what its been so far (just a matter of mathematics) but I feel for the yoof of today and all the manufactured 'band' bs music they have to endure.

It will never touch their soul.............................take note young ones, the music industry today will only want your euros/pounds/dollars/dinars. Nothing changes but today real music don't get air time just IMHO 8)

I think you're in the nostalgia loop a little here Toby. Every generation believes their own formative years and musical influences were superior to what comes after. We also stop listening to and finding new stuff. For most of us as kids, that's how we came across this music.

When I was 14 on the late 70s, NO ONE was playing Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Rainbow, Sabbath, Cream, Clapton, etc on the radio. Then as now, it was dominated by industry pop. It's just got bigger and slicker and ever more tied in with TV via talent shows, rather than chart countdowns.

For every 1D today, there was an Archies/Monkees yesterday. Yes, they sold 10s of millions of records, and I'll bet your parent thought they were pop trash. While they were musicians, they weren't allowed to write 95% of their stuff. Google any top 20 from the 60s and 70s, you'll find the dross to diamonds ratio very high.

The music industry has never had artistic motives. Ever. Granted, it had some people who nurtured artists, but they rarely held the chequebooks. Artists and employees survived only as long as they were making them money.

Yes, there were alternatives in the 60s, via the pirate broadcasters. Today we have limitless choice - DAB, internet streaming, more radio station access than you could possibly name. Plenty of options for a new generation who tires of mass produced music, to discover whatever they wish. Still plenty of young bands picking up real instruments.

Eric Clapton   Cocaine, Wonderful Tonight and Lay Down Sally
Led Zeppelin  Songs off In Thought The Out Door.
Black Sabbath Heaven and Hell (may have been in the early 80's)
Those are just some off the top of my head

You are right in that's when the industry started playing generic crap and DJ's did have as much say in

Radio Luxembourg and the late John Peel on Radio 1. The days of my youth. And if it wasn't for Mr Peel playing Teenage Kicks back to back (sent to him by chance) I wouldn't have heard one of the greatest songs in history.

No loop here Drubbing, its just I have to look further afield to find what I like, as mainstream radio hasn't played it for 30 odd years. Thank god for Planet Rock and the like.

After those bands of my youth, what folk refer to as classic rock, I moved onto Skynyrd, Aerosmith, AcDc and such like in to mid late 70s. Then up sprung Maiden thats had me hooked for the best part of 35 years.

Every decades brings something that that floats my boat eg Metallica, Staind, Nirvana, Black Crowes, Puddle of Mud, Nickleback, Evanessence in no particular chronological order. Oh and recently Halestrom, Delain as I seem to be drawn to female vocals these days.

No rose tinted glasses here but what I like is not played on the radio......late 60s early 70s it was. Simple as that 8)

Toby, I guess I also misunderstood your first post. And all the bands you listed play on my local rock radio station, which, as far as I know, anyone with Internet access could listen to. Not sure. Anyway, it's certainly quite mainstream and easy to access. 

As for me, today I'm listening to some of my favorite songs. Had I but known they were souless perhaps I would have been smart enough to avoid. It's too late for me. I'm in love and can't see their dead-eyed stare when they sing haunting melodies about a love that's shouldn't be right but is or about wanting someone so much it's all you think about or wishing for people to live life to the fullest. Yes, it's too late for me, I'm lost. Leave me behind, save yourselves.

Funny. I recently listened to this as well as I'd just found Foxes on Spotify. It was recommended to me by Last.fm saying it was similar to Ellie Goulding and Lorde. I tried the acoustic session album first which was cool, then tried Glorious which I thought was a pretty cool album. I then discovered I might have heard her with that Zedd song you posted.

Here's one I enjoy in particular. :D




And a live version for good measure:

Do you have some titles? I found there's quite a big difference between her (Bright) Lights and Halcyon (Days) albums. Most of my favorite tracks seem to be on Bright Lights, but Halcyon Days still has a lot of nice stuff on it. Fun fact - you also posted a link of OneRepublic. Their frontman Ryan (Tedder) wrote Ellie's hit single (from Halcyon Days) titled 'Burn'. Which leads me to 1989 by Taylor Swift (released late last year), which is kind of in the same electronic pop vein but perhaps a little more mainstream because it's been produced by Max Martin. Ryan Tedder co-wrote and co-produced two tracks on it - Welcome To New York and I Know Places. You're on your own finding those though, her music isn't on Spotify (anymore).

Bad no misunderstanding, I kinda meant Radio 1 Capitol etc (not that I can pick them up out here or want to) by mainstream. Yep there's lots of genre specific stations out there and definitely on the web but that was the point. As you said you have to go to your local ROCK station to hear this type of stuff, your general station will be pumping out carp created by Louis Wash and his cronnies. These days IMO bands like Purple, Sabbath or Free who all charted highly on the Beeb wouldn't get air time unless they were put out on a rock specific station. Just the way of the world these days. It just means folk who are listening to the more higher profile stations, miss out on some good stuff unless its passed on by word of mouth.

I get by with Planet Rock, Kerrang and Scuzz(sort of, too much growling as I like to hear vocals).

Or I could be just an old git having a moan, cause the yoof of today needs to get rocking.....insert Joerfe metal hand thingy \oooo/ .....now if I had 6 fingers boy could I play 8)

The stations I listen to where playing

Late 70s UK, there were not 200+ stations catering to every possible genre. There was the national broadcaster (BBC) and a few local commercial stations you could reach.

The BBC had a late night spot in the graveyard hour on a friday night for Rock. That was my intro, but hardly listening aimed at the mass market. They also had guys like John Peel who did what DJs used to be allowed to do - break new bands, and bash down doors to get them attention he felt was deserved.

The Radio DJ is long dead. I stopped listening years ago. There are other ways to find stuff that isn't piped direct from TV and radio.

That's interesting! I'm bad about not even knowing the names of people in bands I like. Sometimes I don't even know the title of the songs I like because I listen without looking.

We seem to be reversed on which we like better. I like Halcyon Days better, not that I dislike any of her songs. (Starry eyed may be pushing it)

Some of my favorites are Under Control, How long will I love you, Only you, Burn, Hearts without chains, I know you care, Animal, Lights, Salt skin and her cover of Your Song.

With Calvin Harris- I need your love and Outside

I had noticed Taylor's songs disappeared from my playlists, except Eyes Open. When I found out why I took that one off too to respect her wishes. I haven't heard anything from 1989 except Shake it Off.

Heh, I'm the absolute opposite. If there's an album or song I really like, chances are I'm gonna know the producers and writers. Usually I check which song's playing when I like it. I'll even remember whereabouts it is on the album (yeah, I listen to albums as a whole).

I agree with your point about Starry Eyed - never liked it much until I saw it live. I really enjoy the song now. The songs you mention seem to be on the part of the album where I kind of forget to pay attention. My favorites are further towards the front of the album and include songs like My Blood, Anything Could Happen, Figure 8 and Explosios (that one was great live too). Burn is what brought me to Ellie, so that one will always have a special place. Lights was amazing and Salt Skin is also one of my favorites. I never liked I Need Your Love much until I heard that live as well. I do like Outside though.

You outline that 'Your Song' is a cover, but so is 'How Long Will I Love You' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-ts=1421828030&v=gkVJlafj7W8&x-yt-cl=84411374). ;)

Shake It Off is arguably the worst example of what is on 1989. IMO it's a bit the odd one out on the album musically (little bit less so lyrically). Blank Space comes a lot closer to representing it. Incidentally, it's one of my favorites.

Cue with my ingrained 60/70s rock genes, it amazes me when you drop these posts that I find myself thinking I need to re-evaluate my thoughts on 'country' music, coz these days there less yea-har and gingham and yeah hoe-downs.

Maybe I'm going soft in my old age, its probably why I just love to play Back To December but I'm kinda slowly catching on. As Justin constantly says if it sounds good it is good.

This forum is beginning to corrupt me and take me to places I never thought I'd go. I'm I happy? Do bears xxxx in the woods? Is the Pope Catholic?

Back To December (or September as Justin calls it ;D) is actually quite a good example of what country is these days. Sure, it's a bit on the pop edge of it, but still. Do mind that the average age of the target audience went down by a considerable amount over the years. It's fun music. I'm glad it's causing you to have a re-think. I never thought I'd like country either, until I found an easy way in which has also broadened my views of music in the process. Without that breakthrough, I wouldn't have considered picking up a banjo or mandolin. ;)

@Cue I listen to whole albums because a lot of times the best songs don't get released as singles. I usually put them on playlists with other whole albums and listen on shuffle though. Gets a little weird if there's an intro that's a separate track. Blank space is going to be stuck in my head all day now.

@toby If you've been listening to halestorm maybe you've heard 'Here's to us' which could probably pass as a country song.  Can't post it because language, but this one doesn't have far to go either

I've also listened a lot to Derek Trucks "Sahib Teri Bandi" since I started playing guitar three weeks ago. That piece is a real inspiration for me to play guitar.

Love the music but just can't embrace the leads vocals. They just don't float my boat and its just a personal taste. Same with RUSH everyone used to rave about them back in the day (well my day as it was) but I never clicked with the singer.

End of the day can't have it all and I'm a fine one to have a downer on vocalists, as I'm a one/two note specialist!! 8)

I kinda know what you mean there. There are some songs where I absolutely love his voice (Red Morning Light, Sex on Fire) and others like this where I tolerate it because I like the song. The curse of having a unique voice I suppose.

I remember there was this one band that was briefly popular years ago where the singers voice almost made me feel physically ill. I don't know what that was about.

Seem to remember Hey'sus used a jetty that made him look like he was walking on water. Boy I wish I had your perseverance and kept both locks and beard together - looking good stitch. But last year when I was developing the Messiah look, I got battered outdoors, cutting grass on the plot on the tractor mower. Hair was slashing my face to pieces but I kinda stayed with it much to my missus's dislike. Our Scottish hairdresser left France and went back to the UK and after a few  months, I got arsey and got the sheep shearing gear out and took it all off. Now its just easy maintenance for me and she still don't like it. Rock and a hard place you bet your sweet ass  8)

Sure she'll say its carp when I hit the play button ;D That's the problem when your missus sung in both a band and choir/orchestra back in the day but can I get her to sing  with me playing?

I am a Steven Wilson fan, no arguing over that. I loved his work with Porcupine Tree and I also very much like most of his smaller experimental side projects. When he did his first real solo project called The Raven That Refused to Sing, I was floored of that prog/rock/jazzy album.
Now I find myself listening more or less 24/7 to his new album Hand.cannot.erase. This album sound a feel is somewhat between The Raven and the Porcupine Tree albums.
Give it a listen.

After seeing the song request for My Chemical Romance - Teenagers, I've just stuck the album on.

The Black Parade is a brilliant album, and Teenagers is probably one of the least dark songs on it.
For those unfamiliar, the album tells the story in reverse of a terminal cancer patient from diagnosis to death, and the lyrics for quite a few songs are very dark.
To me, Cancer is the defining song from the album, and I'll admit I was on the verge of tears the first time I seen the official video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmen9WTlGT0

And Teenagers for something a bit less depressing - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6EQAOmJrbw

Just got this CD the other day, and it is good. It's basically an old school live studio album. All the songs and vocals are basically beginning to end recordings; no cut and paste work according to the band. Very cool to see bands doing it this way.

I went and bought the new Halestorm album this afternoon. I've only listened to a few songs so far, and I like it. It seems like they've gone in a new direction with this album, and musically the songs I have heard may be among the best they've put out.

Brad, not sure if you've seen the "making of" videos they released for this album a few months back. I watched them as they were released, and it was cool to see the process they used for this CD.

There are 4 parts to the "making of" videos. If you've got an hour to spare and like the band, it's a pretty interesting inside look.

Mike, I watched those videos earlier. That really is good stuff. It's good to see four people that play that well together, and actually like each other.

I think Arejay is one of the best drummers out there today. The guy just has wicked timing. They're all very talented.

My favorite moment had to be the part where they are recording the guitar, and you see a third hand come out and grab the neck to mute the open strings for the last few chords.

We are starting our family vacation off in a few weeks with some great seats at a Chris Robinson Brotherhood show.

Thanks to Lefty's post in WYGS I'm catching up with the CRB. Always loved the Crowes and his vocals but did not know he'd gone solo. If it weren't for the forum (or my daughter) I'd be completely out of touch with the music scene, if they still call it that these days.

Also had a 90 minute mini rock fest on the tractor mower on Sunday, plugged into ACDC, with a playlist I'd knocked up future Fartlek running sessions (if don't what it is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fartlek ). Anyways lots of singing, foot stomping and head banging - think Angus meets mini Massey Fergusson.Quite what the passing French thought who knows.............mad dogs and Englishmen :)

Oh yeah, its said in space they can't hear you scream, well in my field they can't hear you sing (I hope)!! 8)

Wow! I didn't know about the Chris Robinson Brotherhood either. I'm listening to their first album, Big Moon Ritual now. It's like the Black Crowes, but with some Grateful Dead or Pimk Floyd influence. Their seemed a little something wrong with the music at first in places. But now I'm just thinking they favored experimentation over polish in making that album. So it's not as stream lined. But now that I know (or at least think) that's what's going on, I'm not as bothered that the music isn't as sharp as the Black Crowes...

Here's my latest find. I've been looking for instrumentals or music with female vocalists lately. Found a hard rock instrumental album from the 70's. Here's a song from it:

hi leavander, here's the song sung by Gene Pitney. Your instrumental find reminded me how great this version is.

Wow man, that was really xx--xx terrible... I'm thinking maybe you're a few years older than me because that was definitely a pre-Sgt Pepper's tune..

But I'm glad you posted it. I didn't know it was a cover. And it's interesting seeing what other people are really turned on by. Plus if you post here, there's a good chance you know more than a little bit about good music. This is a sleepy little community, not a lot of posts. But when they do post, I've been pleased becausethe knowledge is there. Since it was posted on this board, I'm more inclined to believe it's just a difference in taste, and not just bad music.

Same thing happened to me a couple of days ago in another thread on this board with a girl who's several years younger than me. She mentioned a couple of country singers she liked and so I went and checked them out. I didn't say anything, but good lord they were bad. I was able to listen to that whole Gene Pitney song. Starting at about 1:40 he did a couple of lines where he introduced some "distortion" in his voice that I thought was neat.  But those two country singers, even though I tried, I couldn't sit through an entire song. I disliked them that much...

But it is interesting seeing what other people who are really into music like. Thanks for posting that diad.

The Beatles had broken up when Gene Pitney recorded the song. Gene Pitney is one of the great voices of the 60s, although I only have a greatest hits cd, so don't listen to him very often.

I always had a strange taste in music, even when I was younger. For me there are three types of music. Music I like, music I don't like and music in the middle. The divisions are fluid and have often changed.

Sgt Pepper wouldn't make it into my top 5 Beatle albums. It was the last Beatle's album I bought on CD.

Music is an adventure, always be ready to open your ears to something new, even if it isn't cool.

Here's something that is cool and I've listened to a lot over the past few months. Paris 3 July 1971.

But I really was glad diad posted his song. And the Lana Del Ray song he just posted, even though it's not the type of music I listen to, and my ears had to get used to it for a little bit, I really did like that Lana Del Ray song he just posted. I will be checking out some more of her work later today...

Today was my last day at internship and I controlled the music today. People weren't amused when the air conditioning unit was turned off and they heard Meghan Trainor playing back.

Now, who said something about strange taste in music?

I've been listening to Kacey's new album "Pageant Material", definitely one to check out.

I also started listening to Echosmith; I heard Cool Kids a few times and I really liked the song. I like the album it's from too, but haven't listened to it enough.

That's when the Stones were on top of their game. That music has held up so well, I remember being in my college dorms as a freshman and playing Exile on Main Street. The guy from next door walked over and said, "wow, that's good, is that the college station?" I went to school in Athens, GA that had a very popular college radio station that played all kinds of weird alternative music. The guy thought he was hearing something from that station that he really liked...

No YouTube for it yet, but there's a new Bon Jovi song.  The verses are a bit... intense?... for me, but after listening to it 4 times in a row, I've decided I like it.  I think my favorite part of the entire song is the guitar slide going into the chorus.  I NEED A BAND.  ;D

This song may as well have been on a loop with me for the last two days. It is so good.





I love the sonic landscape created by it. The vocals are gorgeous. I would really love to see a video on the effects Justin used in it, and the layers involved. Such a great song.

@ Dan

Good show?


I loved it, i hope i conveyed that well enough to the guys and girls (i even had a bit of a 'startstruck' moment when talking to Sandra post-show, i was that impressed with her voice), i had expected an average show (no offense meant to the guys, i'm just that much of a pessimist), but it sounded great to me.
Opening band was a bit too 'teen angst' for my taste (jeez, i'm getting old  :( ), but i loved PointFifty a lot, a lot of good original songs and covers of a few favorites of mine, impressed with with how tight Lieven's band was, and with the contrast between Lieven as a person off stage (laid back, self-conscious, bit... shy? not sure how to describe it) and his presense on-stage (showman, real frontman, right there, smooth, suave even.. keep rocking that Johnny Depp look brother! ).


And, while SandmarX strictly speaking isn't entirely my cup of tea, the performance alone sold me, and Sandra's voice is just... WOW.
Not often that a performer sounds as good live as they do on the album (or better), but Sandra managed, IMHO.
Band overall was really tight and...
Marcus is just a beast on that guitar (crazy bugger jumped off the stage mid-song and rocked out with the crowd), chemistry between the bandmembers is good, stage presense has changed so much from how they started (hell, you'll remember it was well, Marcus posting videos, asking for feedback, first thing everyone said was 'STAGE PRESENSE NEEDS WORK!'.. i'd say they took it to heart, and then some), and the enthusiasm was just infectious.

So yeah, i'd say it was worth the total of three hours or so of travel just to meet the guys, the show being this good was a very pleasant bonus to add to it, as was being able to get an autographed album.
Title: Re: So... what are you currently listening to ?
Post by: LievenDV on September 13, 2015, 04:00:21 pm
Thanks for the kind words Dan,
I was looking forward to play with SandmarX and also to meeting you; you're a great guy!

@ Joerfe (and Lieven, since i mentioned Gov't Mule, and this song in particular last night) :

Exactly! Crude but it works and it's just the way I like it. I noticed the frontman is using a capo on 2nd fret, but I guess his guitar is tuned in D and the capo there gives him standard tuning.
Title: Re: So... what are you currently listening to ?

He's tuned to Eb on that one.

Cool, Dan. Thanks a bunch, I rewarded that speedy support with a thumbs up ;D
- As I mentioned, I didn't try to play a long as my guitar is not with me right now so I just assumed he would have tuned to D giving him standard tuning for the song, but as the song is not in standard tuning my assumption is out of tune, so to speak ;D

Again, thanks.

Edit: a good vibe, that is.

Also liking quite a bit of Avicii's latest work, with The Days/Nights and Waiting for Love are well up my Spotify playlist.
Plus just added the latest Shawn Mullins album, for something a bit more chilled.

The "other" Josh Turner (not the country music fellow). Multi-instrumentalist, very talented, with very talented friends as well. Check out his YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3Wj9aO8VS5ZuXrtWfJf81w).

Bowie's new single.
Am I missing the point or does it really only start around 5:00?  :-[
How Bowie has aged (physically I mean). There is plenty of his music that I don't like (and this song is one of them), but I have a lot of respect for him as he always seems to be a few years ahead of the times. He absolutely nailed the sound of the 70s, 80s and 90s before those decades had even begun ;D Like Blue Jean and Absolute Beginners were the perfect 1980s pop songs, and then suddenly he came up with Tin Machine at a time where loud guitars were regarded as uncool!

Right, so now I find myself listening to Tin Machine...

Currently I'm exploring the music of artists like Elliot Smith, Bright Eyes, Iron and Wine, Damien Rice, Sufjan Stevens, I'm fascinated by the chord progressions and the changes in their songs and I came across this beautiful piano cover of the song "Where is my mind". It's simply beautiful and melodic, it shows no matter how dark or haunting a song might be, it will always have a hidden beauty to it that's brought forth through covers like this "Where is my mind - Maxence Cyrin" (Original song "Where is my mind - Pixies")

I was bouncing around the Internet today and stumbled upon an article on officialcharts.com. It was about Elvis Presley's album "If I Can Dream" catching up to Adele's 25 on the Official Album Charts. Excuse me? What Elvis album is this? I looked into it further only to discover an Elvis album by that name was released in October 2015. They've taken the original Elvis vocal tracks and married them up with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. I previewed the tracks on Itunes and then quickly downloaded the album. Wow! Wow! Wow! It's like discovering Elvis all over again. If you're at all an Elvis fan you must get this album.

Good oldschool minimoog sound :).




I really love this guy, especially for his arrangements and improvisations. I love listening to those 80's style keyboard arranged songs for learning purposes too, because I want to capture/incorporate this feeling into my playing with my band, because I sort of lack "complexity" in hard rock and I am trying to upgrade the standard "riff+verse+chorus+solo" pattern by harmonizing the song. And it sounds at least interesting, if not good IMHO.

Not a big Meghan Trainor fan, personally, although I like the general groove of the song.  It's almost kinda 90's. 


Now for a short minor rant... women complain about being portrayed as nothing but s*x objects and arm candy.  But then they go and promote that message themselves!  Irritates the HECK out of me.  Great role models.  And I don't just mean her - basically any female in top 40 pop seems to be that way.

Yup, bit 90s-00s which is why I liked this as well:
I didn't expect the 2000s to come back, but hello!



Meghan isn't the first one that guys see as sex object or arm candy which reveals yet another sad truth about society. Having said that, I think she's very attractive.

I love Girl In A Country Song as well! Some well-formulated and comically toned sass to address the trend in country songs that the cashgrab popular music industry doesn't care about.

I just hate it, there's obviously nothing wrong with her and many others alike.

I'm always curious how much it's in the management's cash-grab state of mind or they just lost their minds. I don't know much about Ariana except that I like about half a dozen of her songs and that I wondered why she was at the CMA awards in 2014. I liked Miley when she still did Hannah Montana and after that I started wondering what happened as well. Especially that VMA performance with Robin Thicke...

I agree that generally, female country artists are classier.

That Tori reminds you of JoJo might explain why I really like that song - years and years later I still really love JoJo's older stuff like Leave or Little Too Late. Still think she's awesomet hough. :D

Me, too.  Probably a good chunk of it is management related. 
They always like to do cross-over type of performances at the CMA's, but I didn't get the Ariana with Little Big Town thing at all.

Learning this lovely song at the moment. One of the big side benefits of Justins song books is how many great artists and music they introduce you to. There are so many great songs, singers and bands I just would not have heard if not for Justins books. On their own the chords to this song are straight forward, on it's own the vocal is pretty straight forward. Together it's just a little trickier.... and this is a beginner song in the acoustic book... oh well.

There's a new album in the Pipeline. Most of their stuff is about science and sci-fi. What's also really nice is Animist. They only have one EP, but it's worth having on your radar, in case they ever come up with more. https://animist.bandcamp.com/

I'm currently also very excited about Toxic Holocaust https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1bk9ppv8Rs

Haha...hell yeah. Those cats are awesome. The guitar ain't shabby either in the other songs.

 I got to see them live shortly after the first album....great show. Send Me On My Way was about a 9 minute song, and the back and forth between instruments was awesome for the whole show.

That Ted video was great.

I admit, I have absolutely no idea what those are.... who are some examples?

You are so lucky. How often do you get to discover a whole genre of music? Not ony that, but it is a really good genre.

One of the mainstays of psychobilly is The Reverend Horton Heat. The man is awesome.

This is probably his most commercially successful song




Although, as a Johnny Quest fan as a kid, this one always makes me smile..





Brian Setzer is probably one of the few guys that you can talk about and say "man that cat can wail", and not feel like a dirty hipster for using dated slang. The man is a legend.

Mark Knopfler's new album, Tracker, some lovely songs like Silver Eagle - I had no idea about his solo career and his guitar prowess until I came across this video on youtube which inspired me a lot:





Also Don McLean - I read Tommy Emmanuel recommended his American Pie album, especially 'Empty Chairs' as a great example of fingerstyle, and he's right. I'm learning his Vincent from Justin's video on it (http://www.justinguitar.com/en/BS-804-Vincent-DonMcLean.php), and it's given me a vast leap forward in fingerstyle - thanks Justin! I wish he'd do a video on Empty Chairs!

A lot of AC/DC and Kiss. My favorite bands when I was 12 years old and now I find myself right back where I started. I love the simple, bluesy guitar riffs; overdriven but not overdone with distortion. Trying to add a ton of both to my guitar repetoire.

Hence the new strap. (http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160612/c65cee5e79e40a71ddbe6f33892a0ea5.jpg)

Their name does suggest a metal band, huh?

Drive has been requested a handful of times (by different people), and I've always said that I didn't know it. It's not the kind of thing I usually listen to, but it does sound familiar, so maybe I've heard it on the radio at some point. It has what I call the "generic 90s band" sound (which may not be accurate, in the case -- I don't know when this song was released).

It's not terribly difficult to play, but I'm finding it troublesome to sing this one while playing the guitar part. Not the first time that's happened: I'll slow it down and work on it, I guess.

On topic for the thread: currently listening to Andy Timmons.

Kasper thanks for the nudge, kinda out of things these days with new releases, unless me daughter tells me! Switched off from Metallica after St Anger which to me sounded like it had just been thrown together just my humble opinion. I'll have to take a listen.

Suddenly I find myself listening a lot to the first couple of records from Bruce Springsteen. I have no idea where that came from as I've never really paid much attention to him earlier.
Gotta love some old fashioned rock with plenty of sax and piano!

A few days ago, I was driving on the German autobahn, and Crazy Horse came on the radio with the traditional Wayfarin' Stranger. And even if I usually prefer the somewhat heavier stuff, now I can't stop listening to the many great versions of this song that are around, among others by Johnny Cash...

Of course it was also the signature song of the impressive Broken Circle Breakdown movie of a few years ago.

You guys will understand and appreciate this... I'm not sure I even need to explain why I like it so much.  In case that link didn't work, here are my comments on this:

"Just wanted to share something.
Bon Jovi has always been one of my biggest musical influences. Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney concerts were what inspired me to learn to play guitar, and they remain among my biggest inspirations and influences (especially for songwriting). But Bon Jovi is the reason I decided to make a career out of music. Watching their concerts is what made me realize I could see myself doing that, too. When I first started to make that decision, I watched every interview I could find of the guys, just trying to learn everything I could. I've always felt like I have a lot in common with Jon in particular, personality-wise, so maybe that's why their music resonates with me so much.

This song and video are a good example of why I look up to them as artists. *Really* pay attention to the lyrics and the message, and the storyline of the video. It becomes more clear what's going on in the 2nd half of the video, but this is a direct and unfiltered expression of what is wrong with the current Mainstream Pop music industry, and how so many young female artists are portrayed in a sexual light, all in the name of money and power. Too many artists focus on becoming rich and famous instead of focusing on making meaningful music. I love that these guys are not afraid to say their opinion on matters like this. They don't do subtle. I really respect that. And I fully agree.

Well done, Bon Jovi. Well done."

I was watching a video of Bob Katz talking about mastering and the loudness war. Then he played a bit of this song saying he had to master it super loudly. This is not He was referring to the album version, but here's an awesome live version that I found. I really love the song and apparently I already knew another song by the artist.

Aynsley Lister - Eyes Wide Open
Shakin' Stevens - Echoes of Our Times.

Two fantastic albums, the last one being one of the best I have bought in years. I am not joking, it is nothing like Stevens' stuff from the 80's. It is a blues album full of storytelling. My only complaint is that it is too short.

They were playing some tracks on Radio 2 a while back and have to agree, it is not the Shakin Stevens style of the 1980s, I'm not usually a fan of 80s stars making comeback albums, they usually either sound dated or are not up to old form, however not in this case.

Currently being blown away by this version of my favorite Tom Waits song by South Korean jazz singer Youn Sun Nah. I like her vocals on the album version a bit more, but I absolutely love the live instrumentation of guitar, accordion, and double bass





And since I'm already in the mood, further listening to "fatsO", a Colombian jazz/blues septet that also draws some inspiration from Waits.

Ed Sheeran. I've been listening to The Beatles for the past few years and modern music has never really done anything for me. A couple of weeks ago I was flicking through the beginners songbook and saw there was an Ed Sheeran song, so I thought I'd best check him out. Fantastic stuff, I've just bought his latest album and his first album on vinyl and he is such an amazing talent.

I have this huge mix that I tend to put on shuffle play most days, so I never know what will be playing from day to day. Prominent in the mix for me today though have been, in no particular order:

Beth Hart with Joe Bonamassa - "Your Heart Is Black As Night"
The Darts (remember them? I loved em as a kid, and recently thought I ought to have a "best of") - "Bones"
The Ventures (from a mix of 50s guitar instrumentals I also recently added to the collection) - "Walk Don't Run"
The Temperance Movement - not sure which track it was, but think it was a cover.
Bobby Bland - "Ain't That Loving You"

Loads of others too, but these caught my attention the most today...so far.

I feel a bit embarrassed to admit that I've only just, in the past week, come to appreciate Jack White. I was never really in to The White Stripes (though I did love the intro to Jolene), for some reason they just got up my nose. Fast forward all these years and I was reading about Jack White and making vinyl records. I checked out Lazaretto and was blown away. So this week I've been listening to that album and loving it.

Other than that, Dolly Parton.

Tash  Sultana

http://www.tashsultana.com/

She is a young girl from Melbourne Australia and she is currently touring Europe  to sellout performances. I caught  the second half of a song on the radio and looked her up.

She is amazing. Plays guitar, mandolin, trumpet, and drum machines with loopers to create a one woman band. She looks as though she  is totally enjoying creating her music.

Here is a clip where she is playing a beautiful  telecaster with about 100 pedals on the floor. Great to see a girl guitarist doing something different. Worth watching to the end.





This is the one I caught on the radio.

Isn't she just, my first thought when I saw her was "put the guitar down Mikey boy, this instrument is not for you", I was totally blown away by her. She's largely self taught as well, what a talent

Been listening to Wishbone Ash, a live album.  Can also recommend the album Argus.

I think they're a great band to listen to for those interested in layering multiple guitar tracks, being a dual guitar band.

Down in South Africa we don't have a steady stream of touring bands and concerts, especially in my younger days (80s/90s). But was lucky enough to catch them live as a supporting act for Nazareth.  Had never heard of them and after their set, wished they'd just carried on and on and on ...

 I didnt know my birthday was on the same day as Marcs and I have always been a fan grew up with Marcs music always there. my brother in law is born same day too and likes T rex also. I have always been incredibly eccentric and outrageous so it certainly fits to have the same birthday. I saw T-rex recently and it was a great day they rocked the place. great fun so thought Id share what I am enjoying listening to.

Neil Young's Hitchhiker ... recorded in 1976 and unreleased at the time.  8/10 songs released on other albums as time passed.  This is the original set of songs recorded solo one night.

Who knows, maybe enough time and practice, perhaps I can play some of these ... Pocahontas and Powderfinger in particular.

Funny how one thing leads to another ...

I was tweaking my mix of A Girl Like You and showing my brother how it all works on the pc.  We were chatting away and ended up looking at a website of the work of a school friend of his who still lives down in Port Elizabeth, the city where I spent my childhood in South Africa).

Spotted a gallery with images from the Voelvry Toer (Free As A Bird tour) back in 1989.  Fabulous pictures.  Great essay written about his experiences back in that time.  Nostalic for me.  Will give yu insights into some of my life experiences being in mid 20s back in those days.

Then took a listen to some of the album he has just released ... most worthy of a listen IMHO

Check it and please share thoughts ...

David, the music is great, the narrative very compelling. We are from the same era, although across the sea, so we may have had similar themes running through our lives, although we live(d) in a different world politically. I definitely like some music for the sake of just the music now, in the absence of meaningful lyrics, but most of the music that draws me has something to say. I grew up believing in poetry and freedom and music and love, even while I was struggling with personal demons; perhaps because of that. I was too young for the music of the 60s in that time, but that’s the era that speaks most to my heart: let’s change the world so it’s a world for everyone. The music of the seventies is closer to me. I go looking for new music sometimes and some of it’s great. I cannot stand John Mayer’s song Waiting on the World to Change, it makes me a little bit mad. I could never figure out Apartheid in South Africa, and race segregation in the US in the 60’s. Apartheid is even harder to comprehend though because it went to the early 90s, and I think surely we would have learned something, globally, long before then. It makes me sad and angry both to realize that too many of us haven’t. Canada also has its own challenges in terms of treatment of Indigenous peoples. I won’t go off into a long political diatribe because we’re all entitled to an opinion, suffice it to say though that something in me seemed to have broken after the 2016 US election. Some things are truly unbelievable. And then I watch The Handmaid’s Tale, a very difficult story, and think it’s not really that far fetched at all.

Ultimately I do still believe that music has the power to change the world. Isn’t that what we’re doing here? 

Peace,

Mari

Mari,

Appreciate your opening up and sharing some of your thoughts. 

Given the nature of the forum, not appropriate to enter a deeper dialogue about apartheid in South Africa, the issues of the USA or for that matter similar matters around the world.

If nothing else I think important to contemplate these things at happens.  And I can say, it felt to me as if that music of the 80s in South Africa that Tim wrote was similar in many respects to the music of the 60s.

And I think people have the power the change the world ... music may be one of the means, along with other arts.  I believe that how we think and act as the power to change and influence, irrespective of who we are ... every little act has an impact.

I've been getting into the Beatles and a guy named Mac demarco. My favorite song by the Beatles currently is strawberry fields forever. For Mac I really like dreamin and one another. He's a really unique guitar player with really flowing and vibrato/slide/Bend playing. Dreamin has a wonderful acoustic rendition done by him that I'm currently learning. 'One another' is another good one, with his live performance on a talk show probably being his best performance of it

My Dad found this in his files while sorting out some old files.

Willie Nelson, live, from 1972 (the year before I was born). I think it shows some great guitar work. It's one of those rare pieces of music that starts out fast, ramps up in the middle, and the last 30 seconds sounds like a freight train bearing down on you. I think even non-country music fans should be able to appreciate it. I hope the file works -- my first time uploading to this service.

That would be great, Batwoman. I’ve also looked at learning Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain. Probably one of the easier Willie songs. You should check that one out. 

What a sad song. Thanks for the tip Tosh.

I’ve surprised myself this weekend!
I had always assumed that the adoration of John Mayer was, quite frankly, hype.

First, I heard this (I’ve just bought Mike Dawes album, Era which I heartily recommend);

which led me to this;

Then this;

Then this;

OK, I admit it, I WAS WRONG!!!
JM is a fine musician and I’ve been ignoring him all this time.
I feel sort of ashamed of myself.

I don't usually inflict my musical tastes on others, but this arrived today and I'm rather excited.

One of the finest jazz guitarists of the 20th century, and the first official release of his 1965 Paris gig.

MrBumble, JM is an outstanding musician. I also never really paid much attention to him for a long time, but I've currently got Slow Dancing in a Burning Room on my current learning list, along with his Free Fallin' cover - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20Ov0cDPZy8

A fascinating instrument - I think Eastern European in origin although there are, I think instances of it being used by street musicians in Victorian times.

Decades ago there were some folk musicians who played them but they have always been pretty rare.

I have fancied one myself for years - one day I must do something about it!

Not exactly cheap though;

Thanks for sharing, Keith ... thought-provoking indeed.  I am resisting an impulse to share my thoughts, as I reckon it would be straying from the norms of discussion for this Community.  Setting aside the message of the song, wonderful performance, inspirational how moving a single guitar and singer can be.

I've not been lucky enough to see NY (yet!), but  I did see the Fugitives a few months ago when they were touring across Canada. I bought their CDs, put them away, and just recently took them out and started listening to them. Anyway they're a great little band, they tour a bunch in Canada, the UK, and Europe. I highly recommend their show if they come through your town.

As a fellow Canadian, I implore you to make it your mission to see Neil in concert. I've seen him 4 times over the years. He is a living legend and one of our national treasures. You will really enjoy seeing him live.

The Fugitives are an excellent band too!

The intro is very similar melody wise to the official Mr. E's Beautiful Blues by the Eels (theme tune for Road Trip movie). I say official, because live they'll often sing it to other random songs that have a similar blues structure (one of my mates is a big fan of them, and they'll play it to random tunes to make it more interesting for them to play, as they're fed up playing the original version).

The rest of the song does seem very familiar though. I've got a feeling it's just a mix of fairly familiar snippets, rather than a full cover of another song though.

I hiked up a steep volcanoe yesterday and was singing and humming all sorts of songs that featured heavily on 'tired' and 'give up'. I reached the top singing Exit by Veda Hille (from Here is a Picture. Need to see if I can turn this into a guitar piece once I'm back home)

Rolandson - if you download the free Riffstation for PC (see link below), then all you have to do is make an mp3 of the video (use an online converter, or just record it).

Then you can open the mp3 using Riffstation, and it will tell you the chords as it plays.

I've only used it a couple of times but it seems to be accurate.

Thanks for the shout out @hilts! Break out your guitar and bang out some C major pentatonic riffs and runs to that video. Such an accessible song (I play it in Eb cuz it works better for me) If you don't get shivers with Joni's vocals, you better have someone check your pulse. Too much!

Hi,

I purchased my 2nd and 3rd guitar on the strength of their playing at 'Norman's Rare Guitar Shop' from a you tube video I found when searching for surfer music.
'Not a lot of surf up their that I'm aware of' ;D



Fantastic playing from the two young ladies, and the bass player and drummer in the group can both sure play their instruments also.

Kind regards,
Rufus

It’s a snippet from ‘When What You See’ by the Laughing Clowns from their album ‘Mr. Uddich Schmuddich Goes To Town’ (seriously!)
Jazzy guitar riffs by Ed Kuepper over a bendy base and frantic drumming, joined by a fabulous horn section and culminating in a full-blown Hawaii-5-0 freakout.

The Heart Collectors an Australian group, though the mandolin/banjo player was born in Wisconsin. I saw them yesterday. Their harmonies are sublime, and the blend of their instruments and voices made me melt. I'm still floating on a cloud. They held our audience spell bound, it was palpable. They have a real warmth and joy that makes their level of professionalism and polish radiant. They sure have won my heart. This video was filmed a few kilometers inland of where I live. They tour the USA and UK. If you want more info  http://theheartcollectors.com/

The song does get mentioned more than once throughout the film by members of the band but not in a complimentary way. :D

I think they hated it because it was the B-side of Bohemian Rhapsody, so Taylor split the royalties  ;)
I'm hoping to get to see the film on Sunday.

Two fab video conversions Brian. I love how all the children are clad in matching clothes, no matter their ages.



"Tell my girl I have to forget her
Rather buy me a new carburettor …

I'm in love with my car ..."

Very tongue in cheek lyric.


I played the full album of Night at the Opera a lot. I had it back-to-back on a cassette tape with Sheer Heart Attack. I think I actually prefer the latter as an album.

An old friend of mine swore by Queen II as their best album - it does rock.

From the day we were born until we left home, my three brothers and I were all dressed in identical clothes.
Allegedly, it made washing easier and- as we grew- the eldest got something new (matching) and everyone passed one size down  ::)

Very tongue in cheek lyric.

I have a good friend whose teenage son joined a band that was looking for a name.
The dad suggested TIC (with a Nike-like logo), short for 'tongue in chick' 
He seemed genuinely surprised when I pointed out how inappropriate this would be  :-[

Sheer Heart Attack was sheer class!

I've been on a massive Queen and Tom Petty kick for awhile. I've always like many of the singles that Queen had but not till last year had I actually listen to their entire catalog. In fact their music is one of the  reasons why I wanted to learn guitar again. I tried years ago but gave up after a few weeks because I didn't know what I was doing ha. But this time I'm serious about learning to play.  :)

I've been watching these pretty closely since they came to my attention last year. It's as clear as day where they've drawn huuuge inspiration from and why not? Bands just don't get any bigger or better than Led Zeppelin. They were lightning in a bottle.

No wonder Robert Plant likes them. With the comparisons I'd imagine Led Zep will be brought to a whole new generation. It's been almost 40 years since Bonzo left us and the band with him. :'(

Glad to see a young band playing in this style. Hopefully it will bring this style more into the forefront of the younger generations
Along similar lines but leaning more towards Deep Purple, I saw Sienna Root from Stockholm play a couple of years ago in Liverpool. Forget the instruments and amps- I think even their outfits were from the sixties  ;D




and this reminded me of Sweet Child in Time style

I've been watching these pretty closely since they came to my attention last year. It's as clear as day where they've drawn huuuge inspiration from and why not? Bands just don't get any bigger or better than Led Zeppelin. They were lightning in a bottle.

No wonder Robert Plant likes them. With the comparisons I'd imagine Led Zep will be brought to a whole new generation. It's been almost 40 years since Bonzo left us and the band with him. :'(
Same here about Greta. Glad to see a young band playing in this style. Hopefully it will bring this style more into the forefront of the younger generations

I came across the band about a couple of months ago when I was looking into newer blues and blues rock stuff. Them, Alabama shakes, Joe Bonamassa and Gary Clarke Jr. are my favorites so far but the entire playlist had some wonderful tunes. Blues is definitely well and alive. But coming back to Greta, they are amazing in the fact that they don't perform as a tribute band and actually make original music in the style of Zep. However, I had a feeling they'd be sidelined as a band that just sounds like Zep. But apparently they have a huge fan following.

The other day a song by Small Faces showed up on my youtube feed and I've been listening to some of their songs on an almost daily basis since. Very enjoyable stuff.

Mrs C went to see A Star Is Born on Wednesday and every time I turn on the radio or browse youtube etc I seem to get this coming at me.
And it is pretty darn good too.

Just watched Loudon Wainwright's "Surviving Twin" on Netflix. A tribute to his father. He recites articles his father wrote for Life magazine, interspersing with his own songs. It is a brilliant show highly recommended. This would not normally come my way - so thank you Netflix.

Here's a really underestimated band I've loved for years - folky guitar synth-pop with cutting lyrics and gorgeous harmonies.
Not much on youtube, but Dispatch and Disaster Footage at Night are excellent albums :)

Hi,

The quality of the audio is great via youtube, but the actual cd has to be heard through a decent stereo to be fully appreciated. Fantastic production.

When listening to a recording somebody posted over the weekend, perhaps it was CT's, SoundCloud threw up a recording by TerryG.  Gave it a try and was well pleased I did ... worth checking out IMHO

Plain White T's - Hey There Delilah
Sam Cooke - Wonderful World
Etta James - At Last
Queen - You're My Best Friend
Bob Dylan - To Fall In Love With You (thanks Max!)

Basically, my wedding song list for Friday. :)

Recently i've discovered the wonderfull world of Jazz... Oh boy... From Thelonious Monk to John Coltrane, from Kenny Burell to Chet Baker.... I'm on a jazz trip these days and i'm loving it... It's the modern classical music.
Underground from Thelonious monk, for instance, or Midnight Blue, from Kenny Burell... man...That's awesome....

Well I should confess. After listening to CT's track I listened to TerryG and loved it so much that I did my improv. I kinda wanted to find the same backing track but found a minor blues track in D. So in all, CT and Terry both inspired me yesterday :)

Jazz in its purest form is something I've never listened to till date. But I do want to check it out sometime :) Thank you for that share. I'll give those a shot for a start :)

Congratulations dude! Have a rocking marriage man! :) Since you have a Queen song, did you not feel like having "Love of my life" in there?

I saw that too! I thought he’s someone you know. I liked it. It’s on my playlist and I’d like for it to be :)

Edit: And there is one other in the playlist and it’s Kasper’s S.R.V.

Nah, just wanted him to know somebody was listening and enjoying it. You saw my comment I guess. Then today I sent a msg, much like a Justin Guitar private msg.

Oh wow! That’s really kind of you to go so far. I’m currently listening to it on repeat and noticed that it only has 40 something plays. So did my share and reposted it. Let’s see if he’d get some more. He deserves it. :)
