Let's talk about music.
Hi guys.

I really just want to talk about music. It seems to be the thing for which I most care.

For me at this moment in time, I think popular music as it is commonly known, think 2&4, has had it's day. At least in how it has been done, let's say since 1939-41-43-now. And now it is being regurgitated all over the world.

So if I bother I look for something different. All kinds of music from anywhere. I so often am able to link them to a common source. Traditional music in Nepal is in either 6/8 or 12/8, depending on the melody. Also 4/4 usually phrased as 16th's.
It can get very disco. So strange

Then I listen to the birds and the cars. I recall a long and complicated phrase sung by a bird, then followed by a passing car. It was like a buzz roll on a snare rising and falling at the end of a song.

Everywhere I go I hear music. I don't believe there are styles as such, there's just music. Everywhere.

Check this out.





If I think about it, music is the greatest love of my life.

RE: Let's talk about music.
Yeah, I really like music.

I have been learning guitar on and off for about 20+ years, just casually though, not via a teacher. Having a GF and later wife and later kids meant I couldn't give my guitar the attention she deserves and hence I am no Joe Satriani.

I have recently learnt how to play "Always with you, Always with me" the whole way through though, although I am still perfecting it. I have also recently perfected (almost) "Fade to black", and "Infinte Dreams" and the guitar solo for "November Rain", Oh and "You shook me all night long".

So I'm feeling pretty good about that.

I'm also starting to learn piano as my two girls are taking lessons and I am learning it with them, although, I have gone off on my own to learn "Forgiven" by Within Temptation.

I like the challenge of music, I like the idea that you can play many different styles on a single instrument.

I also like to listen to music, especially Iron Maiden. I think in someways being a fan is somewhat like belonging to a religion. For me IM can do no wrong and I love to follow their career and develop my appreciation as they change. I have also found a love for Within Temptation and am finding it interesting that I am more receptive to the pop songs they did in "the Q files"sessions. I probably would never have given the original artists the time of day otherwise. Because of my children I am also learning to appreciate Katy Perry, Adele, Lady Gaga and musicals such as Moana.

Here's a great clip from a Nicko clinic. Listen to how he sings his parts. You can hear him on record.





Great guy. Very friendly.

This is classic. Nicko with Vinnie Colaiuta and "JR" Robinson. Smile

RE: Let's talk about music.
Oh, didn't realise he was vocal while he plays.

Yeah, he's a funny guy, seems to have a love of life and definitely a love of drums and people too.

He refuses to play double bass. Steve Harris once asked him to take up double bass and he told Harry to get himself another drummer.
He did actually play double bass on Face in the Sand but not on any other song.
I feel not playing double bass allows the rest of the song to breath, but hey, I don't know much about drums. I do think though that the drums on the latest two albums Final Frontier and Book of Souls is pretty good, seems to have some elements of Prog, but not over the top. He got very simple on No Prayer.
I've also heard he is a Jazzy player, but I don't know enough to understand that.

RE: Let's talk about music.
I don't play any instruments myself—never had the inclination—but I've always enjoyed listening to drums. This is one of my constant replays...







And it's pure pleasure to watch (the late) Huub Janssen at his trade...

1) That purple-sheen cymbal was stunningly gorgeous!

2) I did not know I could be so mesmerized by (any) three guys drumming on one.

I've been listening to a little japanese folk music here lately just for something a little different.

I love to watch and hear drummers who use all parts of their instruments, like he did toward the middle of this clip. When they supplement the drum heads and the cymbals with the rims and sides of the drum, it's creative and adds depth, IMO.

My capsule timeline of popular music for the past century or so:

1900s brass band; ragtime
1910s jazz; novelty
1920s Charleston; country, gospel
1930s dance bands; big band swing
1940s patriotic songs; crooners; r&b
1950s bebop; rock & roll; country & western; bluegrass; rockabilly
1960s rock; country rock; contemporary folk; psychedelia; free jazz; soul
1970s prog rock; funk; metal; fusion; new wave; disco
1980s punk; reggae; rap
1990s hip-hop
2000s hip-hop
2010s hip-hop

Hmm ... You may have a point ... Consider
