    If I may at this point enter this <i>amazing</i> thread. This is a discussion I've been waiting for since I got myself a logon name. Jon, I, personally, hear the bassline you illustrated very strongly. Yes, even the D's. I never heard the mo...(more)

    My roommates got me into punk recently, and all I wanted to do was play jazz. Here are the ones I like. Crass - just pick a song, there're all the same Subhumans - I'm not sure any song names Avail - "Nothing to pray about" or something like...(more)

    I don't know if we've talked about this before. I'm sure its been asked in one form or another, but I'm not really interested in the normal Who are your influences and why? What I am curious about is specifically what do you take from them whe...(more)

    I have trouble sometimes understanding why there is a difference. Stone Dragon's lessons are excellent for beginning to understand it. But it is also important to understand the harmonic significance of the scale \ chord relationship. For ins...(more)

    That's what I tried to do with my Lesson. I hope it lived up to your exacting standards. Of course you always have been a stickler for living up to expectation. Just doing your part to keep wholenote running smoothly. I salute you. :)

    Yeah, its a database. We have a company doing the Server side programming in Cold Fusion i think. The database is now over 1200 review, and we're not even through half the back issues! Sadly the page isn't up yet...so everyone just has to wait...(more)

    I was suprised after a longer than anticipated break from wholenote to find the broken threads thingy. Doesn't bother me. Hey Chris, I have a job at Jazztimes. I'm doing alot of work right now on their web site. You should see the archive ...(more)

    I play a guitar adapted version of My Favorite things, by John Coltrane. I try to imitate the sound of McCoy Tyner's piano on the album version. Here is the progression I came up with: Key of F (D minor) <pre> Chorus Dm9 - Am9 - Dm9 - Am9 Dm9 ...(more)

    Are you talking about my song? If you are its just a major scale. Its only a two chord song, so the petatonic works good too. The chords are Bm and A for the Verse and G and Em for the Chorus. I think that what they are, its been awhile...

    I'm planning on going to this. He's playing the Mellon Festival at Penn's landing. Is anyone else interested. I think I'll leave after work and drive up, I wonder when he goes on. Well if anyone else wants in, let me know.

    yes but is it specifically just the G. (if it was a Gmin7) or would it also include the minor 3rd and 7th? Asked a different way, do I have 3 notes to choose from on the downbeat or only one?

    today I spent an hour playing country songs that the grateful dead covered. I got the original country versions of Mama Tried and The Race is On. I love those songs. My big project is scales, comping, chord substitution, arpeggios, and jazz s...(more)

    Thanks uncle Stefan! :) <br /><br /> so chord tone refers to the constituent notes of the chord I'm playing over. Played on the 1 and 3 beat of the measure. Interesting. I am going to have to start learning some arpeggios, there is just some ...(more)

    i have the DOD flange with 4, I repeat, <b>4</b> buttons! I really like the sound. I tried the Danelectro, It wasn't any good at all. In fact all the new dinner food danelectro were terrible. The tone was weak and flabbly, like a large fat m...(more)

    Every time I post a question in here it takes me two weeks to understand the answer. That answer brings up a dozen more questions. But that way I know what I don't know. <br /><br />This question is about the bebop scale. I read both the l...(more)

    Well I can tell the other college students at wholenote. I'm always up to 4, but this is my exam week, in fact I won't have access to the internet for about 3 weeks. But i'll be around after that for a late night forum. Maybe We should use th...(more)
