I almost went pro on violin and opera singing....
My dad was about 35 when he realized he wasn't going to go pro on b-ball.
Humans aren't a nation
Racism then, maybe?
Thanks to God
Racism towards birds!!! EUREKA!!!
Piano, my primary instrument.
Had to vote the last option, since I can't really put the harmonica into the "woodwind" category despite it involving breathing through a wooden comb.
The harp is the only instrument I've enjoyed listening to enough to pick it up and play. I think it's more expressive than many instruments just because of how much the sound changes when you do different things with your mouth, your face... you can almost talk right through it without having to put your thoughts into words.
How does the sound of a harp change when you do different things with your mouth or your face?
Spoiler possible answer :
Do you pluck the strings with the lips?
Mirc, you of all people should know. Of course you do, jeez. It's like you've never seen someone play the harp.
Me, I play the hammer dulcimer with my pe--CONNECTION LOST.
Me thinks there foul play afoot.
That's taking it to a whole new level!
Bass - electric and upright, as well as cello
i've dabbled with the bass for a while, and as a DJ, bass is the foundation of my work
bass is the place!
tuba, is basically a brass drum.
trumpets and sax, they counterpoint the bass, giving music a deeper feel.
here are some examples as to why i like them:
miles davis - my funny valentine
that muted horn just makes me cry.
How Long Has Thing Been Going On - Ben Webster
sweet and mellow.
Eric Dolphy - does an amazing solo.
starts with a drum solo, but stay tuned.
HOT 8 BRASS BAND - Sexual Healing - Live!
flea slaps it around, while Jaco goes at it in a subtle way
Nick Cave, Charlie Haden and Toots Thielemans - Hey Joe
hey, this is a great version, joe
or you can check the YouTube Music thread....
Yeah, thank God for making men form coalitions to fight each other.
Hell yeah, man, let's see what you got.
See, I prefer something with more energy to it, but going by timbre there's no doubt that the sax can flow and meander like nothing else.
His technique gets pretty impressive near the middle of the solo, but it's a touch too "free" for me.
That pretty much kicks ass all over the place, I loved it. Do these guys have a discography?
Ooh, I've never heard of Jaco before, I like. As for Flea, almost as good as Les Claypool, but not quite.
Heh, what can I say? Good music is good.
always happy to help people get to know new music
