    Off Topic - Listening to music evolve

    Thanks, Raceboy!

    I forgot to mention, I am on the road again this week, doing The Great Lakes route - still tricky in March with sporadic snowstorms, and wearing me out a bit. I should be home Saturday night, and joining our crew for all the fun Sunday!

    You know the people who did the version on the *We Walk the Line* album?????!!!!!!!! I hate to admit that I've never heard of them, but that is one of the best, tightest song renditions I've EVER heard - the bass and drum are as important as every instrument - the bass even carries the tune sometimes - and the pickin & honky-tonk piano and steel guitar - just one of the best, tightest, most fun musical renditions I've ever heard - the vocals are out-standing - it is all totally out-standing.....it doesn't get any tighter and more well-done than that! I listened to it about 10 times in a row, just in awe of of how out-standing it was.

    • I'm currently reminded of another song. Stuck In the Middle With You.lol
      Crazy day. And I even slept most of it because I couldn't sleep last night.
      The old bod was aching.

    • I don't know them...I'm not THAT old.lol

      Yes, I've heard them before.

      The rhythm section is the life blood and heartbeat of a band. Bass and drums should be constantly in sync and rhythm guitar should lay down a solid foundation of chord and rhythm to compliment the leads, vocals, and harmonies.

      Normally, drums and bass stay right in the pocket together. Unless you are Charlie Watts. He is an incredibly inept drummer that has to follow the bass which keeps him a split second behind the tempo that the rest of the band is playing. It provides a unique vibe to the music, while at the same time, keeping it perilously close to all falling apart.
      And it does fall apart. It happens a lot, but they seem to be able to pull it all back together in spite of Charlie.
