Music!

Completely off topic, but that's what Everything Else is for, right?

For those of you who love jam band type music, I am posting this link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=p ... q_jI2R_QS8

I am so blown away by this performance, I wanted to share. If 20 minutes of guitar shredding is not your thing then you can start at the 7:30 mark, which is where it really gets interesting. If you like that, then hang in there till the end for the climax. But yeah, by the time they really get into the song, most radio type songs would have finished. Not everyone has the attention span for that kind of thing. But if you are like me, and like this kind of thing... wow, watching/listening to this, I was alternating between having goose bumps to picking my jaw up off the floor. Of course it helps that I love the song they are covering. Just beautiful.

Re: Music!

Way cool video. I have always been a fan of Fender Strats, however, after hearing that guy playing the Les Paul, I may have to get one of those some day. The tone he got was amazing. The Strat that the other guy was playing sounded thin compared to the Les Paul.

I think that Ronnie Montrose must have used a Les Paul.

Re: Music!

The guy playing the Les Paul is Warren Haynes, who is one of the current guitarists for the Allman Brothers. The Les Paul has always been an essential part of their signature sound, same as Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Frank Zappa, etc. I agree the Les Paul has a fatter sound, and a strat will likely not sound as good played against a Les Paul, but I still love strats. I've had both (well, the "Les Paul" I had was actually an Ibanez knockoff), but currently I have a strat and would not trade it for a Les Paul. I like having the clean sound as well, and a Les Paul will not sing in a clear tone like a strat. That being said, Les Pauls are totally badass, and are the guitar of choice for several of my favorite players. But then think of the awesome tone of the guys who predominantly play (or played) strats, such as: Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, etc. etc. I guess if I could justify owning two electric guitars, I'd have one of each. But seeing as how I am not wealthy, and have a family to feed, I'm going to just play my strat for the time being. Mine looks identical to Eric Clapton's famous "Blackie": black body, white pick guard, maple neck. Maybe I'll convince my son to get a Les Paul, and then I can play it!

Re: Music!

I do agree that Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn and Eric Clapton made some amazing music. It is always making the best out of the equipment that you have.

Duane Allman was a GREAT slide guitar player. Another was Lowell George of Little Feat. Bonnie Raitt learned how to play slide from Lowell George.

I learned how to play guitar by listening to The Ventures, Chet Atkins, and, of course, my greatest influences were John Fahey and Leo Kottke.

Thanks for posting that link.

Perhaps some of the music playing members on this site will contribute to the thread that you started.

I would not run away. Henry Mancini was a great composer.

As a child, my family would watch Lawrence Welk. The Lennon sisters were great.

Although Lawrence Welk played accordion, The master was Myron Floran who played on the show.

I still think that Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. sang better than Frank Sinatra.

I had an opportunity to see Henry Mancini and his orchestra at the Hollywood Bowl back in 1989...it was a night of musical magic...to this day, I recall the rendition of Moon River...oh my

Re: Music!

Crazycal, War Pigs by Black Sabbath is one of the greatest songs ever IMHO! The guitar solo on that tune is one of my favorites of all time! Of course Tommy Iommi is playing a Gibson SG, which is a close cousin to the Les Paul.

Re: Music!



Some of the members probably think I just landed from Mars after seeing some of those videos. I'll wake you guys up!

So Dan, you like the geetar, here some more stuff for you.

http://youtu.be/uOcUgJ98u28

Kenny doesn't sing worth a crap but plays geetar pretty good for a 20 Y.O. At least to the untrained ear like mine.

Hey Mister, how about some cow bells to go with those drums.

Re: Music!

I do like that electric guitar sound. I am a fan of Joe Satriani.

However, There are other ways to kick butt. Check out these videos.

Re: Music!

Crazycal, I saw Kenny Wayne Sheppard once a few years ago. Of course, he is best known for this tune: .
He's an excellent guitar player for sure.

Rudy, I love that accordion jam! Mixing it up with a bit of Cajun and a bit of improvisational jammin'... just awesome!
Laissez les bons temps rouler! .

And yes indeed Rudy, you got your Fahey/Kottke on there for sure! I've never played around with alternate tunings, but think I would really enjoy it once I got the hang of it.

Re: Music!

Dan, you certainly will enjoy open tunings on the guitar.

For all guitarists in our bus family, I will tell you of three of them.

The easiest is Dropped D. Just lower your 6th string (the big one) to D instead of E.

Normally the strings are tuned E B G D A E (from the skinny string to the fat string). (1st to 6th)

Open G tuning is fun. Detune your 1st, 5th, and 6th strings so that you then have D B G D G D.

I also loved Open C tuning. That is the tuning that I used on the video that I posted. I need to tell you that I also tuned my guitars four frets lower than normal.

So, Open C tuning is E C G C G C. In regular pitched guitar strings, you see that you will have to tune the B string up to C. The other ones all get tuned down.

Playing slide guitar in open tuning is very rewarding.

I have to thank Leo Kottke for this knowledge. I wore out many of his vinyl records learning how to play that way. I had a record player which would also play 16 speed. That effectively slowed down to nearly half the speed of 33 rpm.

That was way before digital devices. Nowadays, there are devices with which you can slow down the speed and yet remain the same pitch.

Duane Allman, Lowell George, Leo Kottke, John Fahey were great slide guitar players. I say "were" because the only one that is still living is Leo Kottke.

Bonnie Raitt learned how to play slide guitar from Lowell George. He was the founder of the band Little Feat.

I always put the slide on my little finger so that I could use the other three fingers to fret.

For those that do not know, Rudy Harley is known as Accordion on this site.

I highly suggest that everyone should try the accordion at least once. You may just fall in love with it. I know that accordions are kind of dorky, and not as cool as guitar, BUT it is like playing two guitars at once.

Playing musical instruments is good for your mental health. Scientists have discovered that the human brain is operating at it's fullest potential when a person is improvising music.

SO! If you don't play an instrument, START doing it. It will keep you young. REALLY!

Re: Music!

Rudy, when I heard your accordion playing, I wanted to dance with a nice blond that had beer breasts and have a few pitchers of good brew.

As far as playing an instrument, forget about it. I'm pretty sure I'm tone deaf.

I think I've seen KWS twice. He opened for BB King. I don't remember the other time. The ex whiff would have dumped in a NY nanosecond for Kenny Wayne Sheppard.

And from Cajun we move on to Celtic (rock, that is):

Is that a Les Paul Jr. he's playing?
