Re: More Gills in a Pink Fish

+1! As usual I've eventually smth to say, indeed! Maybe a good idea to play different parts on different guitars... Different soundings often means different feelings and might help the lead guitar to come up like a second voice (contre-chant)... Just an idea though ;-) Don't blame yourself that muc...

Re: Who's there?

Yep! I'm here, still playing most every days but with spring coming there's a lot of work to care a little cottage like mine and I'm still working on that theater soundtrack (my psychedelic post)... The first time for me to deal with such project! We"re supposed to play live at least for the ve...

@12bar: Hey that is the very first time one use the psychedelic adjective to qualify anything I could have done :lol: Great I feel like having a new skill :cool: In fact, just an out take of a stage sound track I'm doing for a local theater company I'm working with. @MikeL: Thanks Mike!

Re: One of mine and a folk Trad PD

That's a fascinating project Fenson - interesting how it sounds so familiar and alien all at the same time! You've got me really intrigued about the possibilities of such fragmental arranging. Thanks for doing that - I enjoyed the experience! :thumbsup: :cool: : Happy you welcome my musical :wink: ...

Re: One of mine and a folk Trad PD

Great idea you had recording this little piece that morning :D Few second after it starts, I clicked the download icon and finished to listen locally... It was too tempting to do some post-prod work with it... Here it is, hope you'll enjoy! Welcome Back Byzantine.mp3 I do not play a single note sinc...

Re: One of mine and a folk Trad PD

OK, here is my outro :D Thanks Mark for your understanding of my words. Agree about modes and the way most teachers try to teach what they are and how to utilize this harmonic recipe... As I wrote one can talk about theory without playing a single note or producing smth musical. For me, theory is a ...

Re: One of mine and a folk Trad PD

Who is talking about musical taste? Not me! Many Blues do not adopt the strophic form (Big Bill Broonzy) so many use inversion all along a "simple Blues" (Memphis Slim/Willie Dixon --had the wonderful chance to see them together many times in Paris by the sixties in St Germain des Prés... ...

Y So where does that leave the less skilled musician like me? Scrabbling away in the hope that something might work. Here again, I feel like you're "mixing concepts": skilled and gifted! One was born gifted, but this one having such a chance will certainly do not a lot if not working enou...

Frankly, for my level, it's difficult enough to make a couple of minutes of music interesting. :sad: Once again I do not agree! :D I pretty much appreciate the one you sang... and others you've already posted here! By the way you hopefully don't have to play all the notes a chord mights contain to ...

Re: One of mine and a folk Trad PD

In Blues we have an even more fixed form, sometimes only one chord over 5 minutes... it has the same way of becoming a major problem if the length of the piece being played goes on too long - that 5 minute barrier gets broken in blues and it needs to be a collaboration so the contrasting guitar sty...
