Theory question

No, not really. Just thought I'd try and insert a thread as a small counterbalance to the current infestation of this board with the annual Andy Fake virus. (Must be something to do with atmospheric conditions this time of year, some evil dankness that allows such self-perpetuating organisms to flourish...)

Just to inform any new readers of this board: some of us who visit here are reasonably intelligent, with a good grasp of conventional music theory, just in case you had a sensible question.
Andy Fake (and his various other transparent pseudonyms with whom he likes to conduct his nonsensical conversations) is not interested in music theory, only in trolling.
We all know that, and most of us try and leave him alone. But the infestation spreads itself anyhow...
(I suspect it will attach itself to this post before long...)

Personally I hope (sincerely) he is getting help with his obvious mental/emotional problems. Shame to see a good intelligence warped and wasted like that.

I'm glad to see this post Jon.
As old coots, I think we forget sometimes that the neophyte really doesn't know if there is creedence to his ramblings or not. I find this especially so because it is so easy to become overwhelmed with everything.

I must confess I am sometimes guilty of inflaming him (or her).

I gotta stop doing that.

Hope all is well.

Indeed Chris, all is well.
And how are you?

(Let's keep this banter going, keep Mr Fake off the top slot... :-) )

So, can you explain what MODES are all about then???
;-)

(On second thoughts, maybe even Andy F is preferable to one of those threads...)

Modes, well it depends...

One of my favorites is the Lydian Bassmasters.

Suppose a fishing line is a guitar string that exists out of water. And that fish can fly. What conclusions can one reach when, given the fact.....

Sorry, a Fake moment...

Shouldn't any talk of Lydian Bassmasters be reserved for the Active
Bass forum? It's obviously a bass mode. Even your description hints
at it's being bass slanted. When you mention fishing line, isn't it
obvious that you're referring to bass fishing line? So, it would only
stand to reason that any notes from a lydian bassmaster mode,
strung together melodically, would be ideal for creating bass lines.
Peace,

Arrggg....

I thought it was fishing gear.

You know Alan, at this point in time anything is pretty much valid here. WN had it's time, and that time has passed. Let's just enjoy the company of like-minded musicians!

My $.02 obviously...

Fish? But they are intimately connected with music theory! They have scales don't they?

And isn't there a fish called a tuner?

I think this is one area of research sadly neglected by the Fake Institute...

Hi Bill,

I hope you're wrong and WN has not had it's time! I'm a fairly recent member and the lessons and other resources are still valid! It's only on the forums that people like "The Fake" seem to stick in their 2 cents and try to spoil intelligent discussion with their pointless and erratic ramblings. As you imply like-minded musicians with a deep love for the guitar will always survive these transients!!!

Take care,

Martin

I agree. It's bound to be associated with fishing. Heck, isn't that
what those bass forums are for, discussing fishing for bass?
Peace,
Alan

Can I hang out with the grown-ups too? Aw, go on, please!

Seriously, I'm a little concerned that newcomers will be quickly put off by the incessant trolling. I seem to remember that last time it happened a lot of serious contributors abandoned the forums, leaving a lot of newbies and intelligent posters a bit stranded.

Let's not let that happen again!

All the best,

Nick.
