I will be the first to admit that this is a weird post, but I am curious if any other pet owners on UG have encountered anything similar to this. My dog is a male chihuahua and his name is "Nibbler"<---my family loves Futurama. Anyway what I have noticed is whenever I am working on something musical (say trilling diatonic 3rds or w/e) he doesn't even seem to notice. But whenever I start grinding more atonal type stuff, (ie chromatic permutation exercises for finger independance) he comes to me and will listen for hours at a time or until I just stop...Anyway sorry if this is the wrong forum for this, but I am curious if any other woodshedders here on UG have had their pets act similarly when they play.

Interesting, my bro had a Chihuahua-Mini Pinscher would tremble like it was in a wind tunnel when i played my guitar.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

woodshedders?

When Pitmonkeys cry, boners come out.


OT: That's actually really interesting. Contact a bunch of scientists and have your dog be their lab rat.

Interesting stuff - I'd be glad to see some research done on it.

^^Maybe we can figure out what kinds of animals like what kinds of music so we can write symphonies for each animal.

Imagine a concert hall where rich people take their dogs to, with a human orchestra playing atonal crap for an hour for the dog's enjoyment

It's like that episode in HIMYM that Lily drew a painting that dogs seemed to like and they stood still watching it, but parrots hated it.

I learned a pretty cool chromatic lick, and since we're on the subject, I'll let you guys have it.

E|15--12--10------------------------10---------------------------
B|-------------12--11--10--11--12-------12--11--10-----------
G|---------------------------------------------------12--9--

First five notes are quintuplets, next 6 are sextuplets, then 2 sixteenth, and an 8, then a quarter note rest.
you're a stone fox

Keep this idea to yourself! It's a great one.

You should play your chihuahua some serialist music, then. Start him off with Schoenberg, then move to rougher shit like Babbitt and Boulez.

My cat loves it when I play perfect 4ths for some reason - I seriously think animals can hear music just as well as we can.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but that would appear to be a minor blues scale lick in E.

So, in other words, a novice attempting to play 8th notes?

It's in the E minor blues scale, thus you are right.

I once did a science project for school where I put my bearded dragon next to a speaker, played him music and wrote down his reaction.

His reaction mainly involved sitting on a log indifferently, but I made it sound negative for music I didn't like.

That's probably one of the better names you could give a chihuahua.


That or Tiny, like when there's a big, monstrous character and you'd normally expect it to have a much tougher or scarier name, thus providing comedic effect and a touch of irony, . But then play off that expectation of irony so the most descriptive name becomes ironic based on the anticipation of irony.

Right?

My dog is completely indifferent to music. He goes mental if you say 'Queen Victoria' though.

My cat used to enjoy Nirvana. What that says about Cobain's singing voice I don't know


My labrador is indifferent to recorded music but will attempt to put her face on my guitar whenever I go to play it. I don't think the tune makes much of a difference.
