Your guitarist friend was talking about music theory and the "rules" I was talking about in my explanation. All music is math....just not always to the degree in this genre. Some things that can be done aren't to be done in music theory....so the math and the accepted make it so the concept of right and wrong can apply and musicians can have a foundation upon which to build the type of atypical landscapes in this music.
Anarchy Divine is a great example. As a musician.....it made me want to understand even if I wasn't going to "like" it.
My musical tastes defy genre, hence me digging the heck out of this more than anything else that happened sunday night: (skip to 2:20 to hear one of my favorite songs ever)
but interesting music is irresistible to people like me, cause the fan side wants to ignore what doesn't make sense while the musician side wants to explore. All that chord and interval crap is the result.
I listened to the links and found samples on iTunes. Based on the little I heard of about 18 songs....the Perfect Symmetry Album seems like it would be the one for me...especially At Fate's Hands and Static Acts.
I am still in south America right now when it comes to my personal study, but when I get free I will explore this genre further.
so clean after listening to the earlier stuff
I remember that song...country song that had a disco vibe. had to go hear the studio version to remember it.
I don't think disco when I hear it, but OK!
It does have that familiar high-hat pattern disco is so famous for, but I just hear country music.
it wasn't an insult to the song or your freaky tastes, but yeah on the drums and on the studio version the acoustic was electrified and the riff was a little discoish. lots of rock bands were "discoed" up back then too. Kiss and Judas Priest each had a hit..."I was made for loving you" and JP's cover of "Diamonds and Rust"...they weren't disco, just discoish lol.
In fact that little hook in Cambell's song sort of sounds like a Rod Stewart song from around the same time. I can't recall.
"Aint it fun when you're gonna die young"........................so fun......................such fun...........
Just took my dog for our daily walk. I usually squeeze this one in there. Great message if you can stick with it.
