What are u listening to right now?


The Gun Of Bavaria

Recommended Posts

I'm listening to Jack Johnson "In Between Dreams." You are not cool if you do not own it.

Never heard of the guy.

But the chance of me being regarded as cool are about zero.

Got The Mars Volta on now.

Some fun stuff.

Too funny, I hadn't heard about that.

Click on the slide show and watch/read.

Authorities on both sides watched them build it, then busted the known traffickers when they used it.

But today it's the Travis Larson Band - S/T

Synesthesia - Porcupine Tree

Hey, great to hear a band I've actually heard of.

The rest of the songs you guys list on the last 10 pages or so is some pretty obscure sh**.

Don't Let It Bring You Down by Neil Young-I'm learning this one today...

Doesn't this song have some kind of open tuning?

I remember trying to learn it from the record a long time ago and giving up.

I listened to 2 different versions that I have of it yesterday Doug and the live one from Massey Hall you can hear him tuning the two "E's" down to "D's"-I'm using a capo on the 3rd fret and only tuning the low E down

also it's a tough one to sing he's way up there but it only sounds good if you keep it in the original key-some songs can be effectively transposed and some must be kept right-for some reason

The dreaded double drop D tuning.

:)

The End by the Doors uses this too.

For DLIBYD I think Neil uses some interesting chord fingerings as well.

If you can nail this song Jim, it will go over well in your set.

Some song by Ozric Tentacles.

I'd written these guys off as uninteresting to me a few years ago.

But a friend just sent me something, so I'm spinning.

Not bad.

Good one.

I remember when this came out.

It was soooo heavy.

(OK the word worked at the time)

:)

Mountain was great. Leslie West....what a great lead/chord player and singer

Poor Felix, shot by his wife (Gail Collins) who did the Nantucket Sleighride artwork. We lost a great talent there.

Doug, I have no idea. That is one of all my albums which were stolen on my move from California to New York in 2001. I can't even think about this without getting angry/sad. It has taken me years to put my collection back together in digital form. But, all those autographed or one-of-a-kind records are gone forever. Nantucket Sleigh Ride and Climbing are two of the best albums from that era. Mountain should have been 10X bigger than they were. Most folks have no idea the gifted producer and writer Pappalardi was. Just ask the guys in Cream.

While almost all my vinyl is long gone I still have the LP insert that came with NS. It's a booklet that has the lyrics and several illustations by murderer GC. (*&^%$#@!)

FP was genius or very close to, he knew what would work.

Something In The Air by Thunderclap Newman

I'm prob one of the few guys that remember this song.

Nice little tune.

TN didn't do much else did they?

Wasn't there some kind of connection with TN and The Who?

And now for something completely different. The Cardiacs. The vid comes off as a joke, but this band is very talented. I have over a dozen discs by them.

I know that Van Doug and NJ will know this song from the Duane And Gregg vinyl

Guess I'm a little weak on the Allmans. Loved the band though. Had not heard this. Thanks.
