:yeahthat:


Knowing where you want to go doesn’t necessitate getting there in a direct line. Some people look at songwriting as confining. You find a pattern you like and you color nicely in the lines. I prefer to think of the challenge involved in stretching the boundaries. You can write in a “traditional” manner and still come up with exciting things. We already examined the Moody Blues’ “For My Lady” two columns ago and saw the use of the minor plagal cadence. Take a look at what John Lennon does in “Norwegian Wood.” It’s in G (and no, I didn’t plan it this way!) but he starts out the bridge with a G minor chord! This is actually a pretty clever thing to do when you think about it, because the fifth of both G and G minor is D, isn’t it?
Gm C
She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh
Gm Am D
I told her I didn’t and crawled off to sleep in the bath
You could make the argument here that Lennon transforms the song into the key of F, since the Gm to C cadence sounds so much like a half-cadence (it is, indeed, II to V in F). Personally, I think it’s a bit of over-analysis, but then that’s what theory is all about. All I know is that it can be fun, too.
Fellow Beatle George Harrison had his share of interesting bridge progressions as well. Take “Something.” The song, for all intents and purposes, is in the key of C major. The chorus section (“I don’t want to leave her now…”) uses a chromatic descending scale from the A minor (relative minor of C major) to great effect. But in the bridge, he changes the song into A major and creates a whole new tonal center using an A major descending scale:
CHORUS:
Am G#aug
I don’t want to leave her now
C/G D/F# F Eb G A
You know I believe and how
BRIDGE:
A C#m/G# F#m A/E
You’re asking me will my love grow
D G A
I don’t know I don’t know
A C#m/G# F#m A/E
You stick around now it may show
D G C
I don’t know I don’t know

nice post budd - one thing that really impressed me about the beatles was the way they would interweave minor and major chord transitions together - you could here this in songs as early as 1964 with "things we said today" - "i'll be back" is a perfect example of this type of writing - list goes on - like em' or not, the beatles were phenomenal song writers

definitely bro....Another reason why im such a huge fan of randy rhoads

When you listen to the chords he chose for the rhythm and you listen to how perfectly the solo fits in with the chords...its just great...Its like listening to a story unfold

Same goes for alot of early metallica they really had a shot to be something great but that went down hill after cliff died

i liked randy's playing for so many reasons - it was uncanny how he played with both speed and feeling - if you listen closely, you will hear how he played each solo 3 times and layered them overtop each other together - it made for a real big over-the-top sound

Yup perfect example was over the mountain

The emotion randy put in to it was untappable, same with jimi and a handful of other players. Its also not just the emotion its simply that they made it look so easy

Metallica had an aggresiveness, they really wanted to make great music when cliff was there but after he died they just put out records because they could, because there fans were loyal and would buy any garbage they put out. Sad to say metallica died after cliff...they did a nice album with the black album...but that was there last chance at glory in my book

Another example fade to black = best metallica song written

Why some may ask? Not because it was the hardest which it wasnt, or the loudest which it wasnt. It was just a metal symphony the way it was brought together. Thats the metallica I miss...and unfortunately is gone

beatles(i love the anthology) more bands should release stuff like this when there just screwing around and you get to hear cool out takes. this is why bands should have high quality recordings of all their practices. "we improve w/ time like a fine wine really. i'd put us down as a bougelay 62."

Yea...I know. Back in the day Don McClean sang a song called Bye Bye Miss American Pie. It was about the day the music died(Buddy Holly). He was prophetic IMO, to say the least music has changed a great deal. The talk was always about a new artist being "progressive" sometimes that is a good thing and sometimes not so good. progressiveness actually killed an entire genre of music we called "soul". To me, I enjoyed the soul music more than any. I'm talking about Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wison, Fats Domino, Areatha Franklin, ect. Now the progressiveness has work its magic on the "White Soul" music performed by the likes of greats like EmmyLou Harris, Byrds, ect. You can still find a little of it in the music of Dwight Yocum, Allen Jackson and of course Merle Haggard. I prefer acoustical. I like to hear every note of music of each instrument, along with good vocals matching the music. I also like it from a turntable, pumped through 400 watts rms per "Crown" channel into 4 Altec lansing 15" biflex Santana speakers.

I've seen Kenney Chesney in concert with Kieth Urban, it was pretty good. Kenney came on stage with AC/DC Back in Black playing, played alot of rock music. He said that was the music he grew up on. Kieth said being from Australia he was raised on AC/DC, and he can jam on a guitar.

I went to the concert as an anniversary gift for my wife, and came away actually enjoying it. The only country I listen to is Hank Jr. and Charlie Daniels. We had OK seats about the middle and they put a light tower right in front of our seats so they relocated us to the front row. My wife was on cloud 9.

Kieth Urban, also was/is influenced by John Fogerty of CCR. I'm not a big fan of the cookie cutter music coming from Nashville either.

Alabama, Hank Jr., CDB, and many of the so called "outlaw" or "Rock A Billy" groups recorded from MuscleShoals Studios in Ala.

These are the groups that kept the early R&R licks incorperated into their music and were able to "Crossover" into the (at the time) current R&R listeners.

Their is good music to found across the spectrum. I was watching a movie a few nights ago and heard a song that caught my attention. I really like it. I read the credits at the end of the movie to find out who the group was and it was "Nervana" sp?. Believe me, I have NEVER considered listening to anything by them because I had them prejudged. Music lovers can't afford to do that. They will miss out on to much good music.

Pagan, I have found myself being guilty of this far to much. I'm a traditionalist, and at times that's hard to overcome.

I don't know if you saw the Ronnie Brown video that was linked to Youtube Video but the music to it was just AWESOME. It was performed by the New York City Resurrection Chior. The song was an old spiritual about the Hurricane that brought death and destruction to Galveston Bay in the early 1900s, titled "Wasn't that a big ole storm in the water".

i say this because it is almost impossible for me to be limited to five:
i like rock, hard rock, metal, classic rock, punk, some rap, blues, a little hank williams jr. (pre-are you ready for some football), old alternative, new alternative, many old soul songs, anything acoustic, etc. etc. etc. ad nauseum...

pretty much as new music has come out over the years, i have found a lot to listen to that i like

i stay out of most musical debates because i find them limiting...as most arguments where people try and make everything just black/white rocks/sucks...yada, yada, yada

so just about every band mentioned by everyone in this thread has a good chance of making my all-time list

ok, anyone still reading this drivel??? does anyone even care... :lol:

anywho, ill finish by naming a band that no one has named yet (unless i missed it or they put it out there before i finish typing this monster)

2. Incubus

I have Incubus' album "Make Yourself" but I don't listen to it all that much and haven't been otherwise motivated to seek their new stuff. I will say that one track off of that album has made a fantastic song to play on Guitar Hero. The song "Stellar" by Incubus on Medium is a blast to play. Quick fingers...good stuff. :up: The reason I say Medium is because the notes are arranged way different on Hard and the pattern isn't as fun. My best on Hard is 99%. :lol:

Go buy "S.C.I.E.N.C.E." by Incubus. A very, VERY good record. Easily their best work.

I loved "S.C.I.E.N.C.E" and "Make Yourself" had some good stuff on it but, they got famous and decided to write ballads after that...LOL!

I'm really hoping they "regress" to their earlier form at some point and get back to writing good music instead of trying to get radio play.

Their (Incubus) live show is one of the best I've seen, ballads included. Speaking of live shows, The International Noise Conspiracy and Rocket From The Crypt are tied for best live bands I've ever seen.

Edit: And, I forgot to include Avenged Sevenfold in my list of 5 or 8 favorite bands.

I agree that S.C.I.E.N.C.E. is a good album, but nothing mindblowing. "New Skin" rocks though.

I could tell their vocalist likes Mike Patton though. which isn't a bad thing by any means, I loved Faith No More and I love Mr. Bungle

Well, I might have gotten too excited about the record but, it is damn good in my opinion, better then anything else they did...

I'm glad someone else noticed the "Mike Patton influence", especially on that record. That is what got me onto Incubus...to me they were like a supstitute for Faith No More.

New Skin is a GREAT ****ing song.

I love Faith No More. They are an odd band. got big really early but went on to produce their best work after they got big and people forgot about them. "King for a Day..." and "Album of the Year" were their best records (in my opinion) yet no one even noticed.

My favorites are Angel Dust, The Real Thing, and King for a DAy. Album of the Year was half stellar, half bleh, to my ears.

Angel Dust has an odd depressive vibe to it. at one point after buying it, when I was on anti-depressants, I couldn't listen to it for that reason :)

I like these guys a little bit but at times hear alot of Nickelback-esque cords in their music. You know how a band has a style they use repeatedly? Well that's what I've heard throughout this CD. Maybe it'll grow on me more. :dunno:
