You're probably not good enough to pull off either.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Canon Rock has more "soul".


Quote by RU Experienced?
canon rock is a disgrace to Pachelbel.



But I agree with this.

I disgrace the name of the all mighty Lane. But yeah, learn Gray Pianos Flying, and everyone will be like, " Was that Jazz Fusion? That sounded cool. I'm gonna stop listening to terrible music and bask in the virtuosity that is Shawn Lane."
True story bro.

That's kind of weak, playing a song that's popular rather than one you like? And who exactly requests Far Beyond The Sun anyway? Whoever it is is probably a guitarist themselves or something, and therefore won't appreciate it if you do a lousy job.

Xiaoxi, I always labled you a classical guy ( I hope thats's a good assumption) but your sig denies the importance of modes and scales. Now how does one compose classical music without usage of scales and modes? This has intrigued me for quite some time now.

We precisely do not think in terms of scales or modes, unless the music calls for them to be used in a symbolic or structurally important way.

If you check out the fugue below that statement (I know, shameless plug), it will be evident that it is hard to place a label of a particular scale or mode at any given point in the music.

Rather, we treat tones (all 12 chromatic possibilities) in context of the music. Any tone can occur, depending on the time and place needed. You are thinking in terms of vertical harmony, which is why rock and similar genres rely on a static and cyclic progression. But classical music mostly relies on horizontal melodic movement, which is how it is able to flow without ever needing to loop through a chord progression or use a confined scale to fit in that cycle.


But even outside the context of classical music, letting go of the concerns of scales and modes will open up your musicianship no matter the genre.

This, he knows because He is experienced.
On another note, learn cello and play it the way Pachelbel meant it to be played. On a proper instrument!

Heros of our time by Dragonforce.

No, I tried to learn the solo to Heart of a Dragon and gave up after 2 hours. 32nd notes at anything above 100 bpm is just f* cking ridiculous, I love the songs. But just hate the talent.

Machine Gun by Hendrix. Cooler than any sweeping shit out there.
I smoke like Rasta, got hair like pasta

Load up the bong, crank up the song, let the informa call 911

Between those two options, I say play "Far beyond the sun".

In vain hope of you returning to this thread, do you usually think in terms moving from chord to chord or note to note when writing? I think the idea of letting go of scales is hugely fascinating and I aim to write stuff without always having to rely on chords solely in the diatonic system (which takes a lot of blood, sweat and tears at the moment).

Do you have a vast library of chord movements and cadences that you often tap for help for help or do you let the notes guide you? Your fugue sounds like it only wants to move forward. That could be because you're writing note for note or because you've designed your progression to do that and shift tonal center all the time (using something similar to back cycling).

Best way I've seen it explained, I totally agree. I was kind of curious, I was always wondering if you were one of the people who think like this, or if your sig was a joke.

I love that song, i own the band of gypsies album.
Look up glenn proudfoot, watch all his 2 minute videos.
Then as you are about to say can this guy actually write a song
Watch his two or three songs.
Not too bad actually.

Play a song instead. Y'know, with words and melodies. No one wants to watch you cover someone else masturbating.

Play Dopesmoker.


Until they kick you off.
