  1. When I was 12 or 13, I began taking lessons from my cousin, who says now that she was just a few lessons ahead of me! She had a thing for Blues and showed me the pentatonic scale, some Stones, Freddie King, Zeppelin and Aerosmith... Her brother also played, but at a pretty high level, and showed me "Godzilla", "Flying Turkey Trot", "Rock Bottom", "Emerald" and a few other tunes right square in my sights. From that point, I began pulling things down by ear - "Dr Music", "ETI", some Sabbath - and gradually, plugging pentatonics and half-step/whole-step wandering into key signatures, for someth
  2. I can defend anything that I like, with or without reservations. But I don't often tell the dudes that I love October Project or Regina Spektor or things of that ilk.
  3. Ah! ^ Y'remind me - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wuMEaB1gBY Mogg is a little pitch-y, but the guitar part is surgical aggression!
  4. Song lyrics may come close to describing a bummer I'm feeling, but it's often the music that resonates more closely. In fact, music is most often an enjoyable distraction for me...if there's a particular reason I'm putting it on. Along mourning lines, I could go straight to something wistful and elegant, like Stan Getz' version of "Blood Count" or "Speechless", by Weather Report. Both marry sadness to beauty - and that experience kinda transports and gives me a bit different focus... Other times, just gimme a bit of Allan Holdsworth - or another really profound virtuoso - for that wide-eye
  5. These are pretty good guys to deal with... Got my white Chap' and Mesa DC5 there.
  6. How about a bid further into Art Rock obscurity? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHNVsoBtpdA
  7. Ah - forgot about Let it Bleed and this cut -
  8. Didj'all notice that the first guy was doing those kitchen-clean tapping runs with no damping device? I mean, REALLY clean...and he COULD've put some felt down by the nut... Nice!
  9. My Cool Girlfriend came up over my shoulder and said, "What is that?" So, yes - it definitely communicates, musically. This performance shows real dedication to the music, itself. Pretty cool!
  10. Sorry to make a pile, but this is a good topic! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4omAQje1IA
  11. Actually, this one's good for about 37 seconds, at least... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oZPTlI3MEo And I know - a "song" has to have lyrics...STILL -
  12. Cool. As. Hell. Enjoy the bonding sessions!
  13. Late to the party and not decided about the sequence, here (R to L, should the wah follow the volume...?) but this is ebbyting, to now.
