R.I.P. The Night Tripper
Up until pretty recently, my ear never even heard basslines in music. All this time - just the vocals and the lead guitar, maybe some drums if I payed attention. But wow, now, taking this course, I can pick them out, sometimes even start counting 1 2 3 4 now too! I just heard this song on the radio yesterday - for me, marks the 1st time I can now tune out the treble sounds and vocals, and really just hear the bass - huge aha moment - really falling in love with this instrument!
Ooh that track kills @Chris! Haven’t heard that Dr. John album. Killer rhythm section.
That’s awesome Vik!
Here’s my Friday music share, because I’m going to Flecktones show TONIGHT!
seriously I will never whine about not having huge hands again
Hope you had a great concert, @JoshFossgreen! Who was in the lineup?
Awesome, thanks for the share, @howard!
Original lineup! Howard Levy demolished it, did some freaky intricate playing with two harmonicas at once at one point. Everyone else was great too!
Funkeeeeee - thanks, @Chris! You beat me to it…
I was gonna share a real Friday feelgood tune this time that is fairly “innocuous”, but has a real snazzy arrangement featuring the Snarky Puppy horn section.
What do you think of this guy?
Thanks for sharing this, @Chris! I haven’t really listened to it yet - got a very stuffy head right now thanks to the very unfortunate combination of a cold and not being able to equalize the pressure in my ears through two flights yesterday. Everything sounds like it is coming through a yard of cotton or so… Thus, no contribution to this thread from me this week.
But, keep it coming guys… and Happy Friday!
The 90’s Seattle band that should have been as popular as Nirvana but that you’ve probably never heard of…
I guess I’ll share, whether it’s good or not is up to you…
Whoa, I haven’t thought of Y&T in a long time. Thanks for sharing that!
Holy crap that’s cool @Chris! That drum groove = hot.
@joergkutter ah crap, hope your feeling better soon
@Korrigan nice. The Strokes instantly came to mind when I heard that first track
Thanks, @Chris - it took two days to get all the cotton out of my head
Thanks again for that Max Moran share - the whole piece is just so percussive.
And, thanks also to @Korrigan and @funplumbin1 - hadn’t heard of either of these bands before in my life - I guess that shows you how much more there is to explore out there, or perhaps how “protected” my upbringing was
