Re: Message Board Conversion

I'm finding myself growing tired of the new "social media" and missing the old msg board format.
Perhaps there are more people out there who feel that way.

Re: Lennie Digs Diana!

That's a good call on Lennie's part. Very intuitive. Did he have any views on Jimi Hendrix? Larry Meyer, who studied guitar with him, told me a story about that. He brought in Jimi's first album and played "May This Be Love" - the "waterfall" song, and Lennie said that Jimi's so...

Marv and Adam, Those are great responses. I have also heard the above named musicians play strong 8th note lines, when they feel like it. That is only one slice of the musical pie. To these musicians, improvisation includes that but much much more. A very simple answer to Ryan's question is that the...

Hypothetical Musician Says ... "But sir, C Major is the basis of all Western Harmony ... " It’s only a perspective, and a totally arbitrary one. Dividing the octave into 12 tones is arbitrary. Tweaking all the notes (i.e., tempering) so that all 12 keys are in tune is arbitrary. Having ...

When I was young I luxuriated at the piano, playing completely free form. Atonality and tonality swirling together. No key or mode predominated. Indeed, 88-tone music. My only reference was the record collection I had access to. It was all beautiful to me. Then bourgeois sentiment hunted me down. Fo...
