Re: One of mine and a folk Trad PD

Once again I do not entirely agree with you Gerd: No problem, that's life. :handshake: Enjoying and having fun should always be the VERY most important thing for PROFESSIONAL players too! Sure it should , but it's not always the case. If you need it for your living, you sometimes have to play thing...

Re: One of mine and a folk Trad PD

Interesting discussion! :dance: I hope I get the right words... I'm not a studied musician and never had any lessons (OK, some keyboard lessons when I was young), but I've learned some background reading books etc. and it helps me to play a song. For me the interesting thing is that I prefer simple ...

Re: One of mine and a folk Trad PD

There is a problem with a lot of folk songs like "House Carpenter" that it's just verse form and no chorus or refrain. Strophic form I think it's called. But it's difficult to avoid that repetition of just the verse structure getting too boring. The version I did of the song does have sev...

Re: No Blues, but...

Thanks! I've read a bit about this piece (thanks for the link!) and although I can't do it like Segovia or Romero I thought the main theme is a good base for this short movie. It's easier on a nylon string, but I don't have a way to record it. The waterways are mainly used to keep the water out, cau...

Re: No Blues, but...

I enjoyed watching and listening to that. I liked your take on and variations on Asturias. :thumbsup: The relaxed mood of the music matched the video footage well. Thanks! I had to play it on my Sheraton, it's the only way I can record (don't have a music room). It all looks very peaceful and free ...

Update - offline - online

Tried to update the forum software the other day, but it turned out to be unstable. I had to step back to the older version.
Maybe someday I have to switch to a completely different software. I also updated the layout of http://12bar.de .

Re: Still playing DADGAD

Funny as I'm currently trying to record some ambient score for another short paddling video, this time inspired by a Spanish tune. I can't play it right, will never be able to, so I just take the main theme plus the Phrygian scale.
I have a favor for flamenco, but it's hard to learn... :music1:

You may also use the scale generator on this site... :big_smile: You can add and overlay pentatonic as well as other notes. But yours look better... :whistle: http://12bar.de/php/generate_scales.php?key=D&showscalePentMajor=&showscalePentMinor=&showscaleBluenoteb5=&showscaleBluenoteb...

"Dark mode" - oh yes, that's true. Really amazing sound. A bit Celtic, plus Spanish and Blues. :pray:
