thanks thats a great help but could you clarify what you mean by :
i'll jump in here Say you play the diminished chord G Bb Db E now move that chord up just one half step and you have Ab B D F let's move that up a half step and we'll have A C Eb F# there, contained within those three dimished chords are all 12 notes. try starting the chord on any note within any of the three chords above and you'll find it'll always have the same note! Thus, for that first chord, the root could be G, Bb, Db, or E! YAY!
hey you lovely fellows sign up for the umphrey's mcgee podcast trust me, if you like sweet music, you will enjoy greatly has anyone here ever heard of them and if so, thoughts? i saw them on friday and nearly shat myself. they blew gov't mule, the headliners, away
Haha, nice to see you're excited, but please, don't triple post. If you look at the bottom of each of your posts, you will see an edit button. You can use that to go back and edit in information that you forgot the first time around.
Well, keep in mind that the use of drugs was always popular in Pink Floyd's fanbase, starting from their beginnings playing at UFO. It was part of the psychadelic life style, and whenever something psychadelic came out, it waas assumed to be connected to drugs. Pink Floyd, the band members themselves were very busy men before they got famous, believe it or not, and they just didn't have the time to really be a part of the psychadelic lifestyle and take all these drugs that their fans were taking. Good thing too. And on a related note, my friend got really baked the other day and listened to DSotM and said it was the most amazing thing he had ever heard. So perhaps it can be appreciated in many ways, which is a great thing. I'm going to have to try it soon, and i'll tell you how it was.
Yeah, although the Syd era is so different from everything else, Floyd fans just seem to love it, and I do, for sure. Piper > SFoS though, IMO. Now, you won't get epic flowing masterpieces from there, but there's some damn good songs. Same with Atom Heart Mother, at least at certain parts. But no matter what Floyd you do buy, rest assured that you won't find anything similar to most normal classic rock bands.
So.....it wasn't sarcasm? Because I find it to be one of the worst Floyd albums, the best thing on there is Learning to Fly, which is amazing, On the Turning Away and Sorrow are pretty sweet as well, but other then that, I just can't much listen to it. I find the Division Bell much better if you are going to go for that era Floyd
Okay, fine, I'll try to top you (even though I already went).
I would travel back in time and pretend to be a Jew during WWII, get myself captured and sent to a concentration camp to live there under extreme torture and repeated beatings from Hitler himself even to get 1/4 of a ticket.
Wait, i'm adding to mine. I would string myself out on a wrack while grizzly men expirimented over my genitals with a chainsaw.
I think that seeing as how David didn't even know how it worked, and Nick and Rick had no idea about it, and Roger said it was bull****, and they certainly don't talk together beforehand to make sure that nothing gets out....that I can safely say its bull****. Besides, keeping the Enigma secret makes sense...because it was meant to be a puzzle. What purpose does it serve to keep it secret for 32 years?
I can't see the syncs that people talk about. Yeah, sure the walking and the bass thing in Money matches up, so what? When I'm in the car watching people walk by, sometimes it seems that they're walking to the beat of the music that I'm listening to. Its a coincidence. All psychological.
Well what about the synching of the guitar intro of time to the turning of Dorothy's head? There's no way that's a coincidence. And how do you know Nick, Rick, and Dave knew nothing about it? I take their word as much as I take Roger's. The reason for keeping it a secret is obvious, because there would be no point in admiting it. It'd lose it's mystique, no? It isn't a coincidence, I can see it. And i didn't DL a synced version or anything; CD player and video.
EDIT: Why don't you come to Toledo, we'll watch it together, and i'll point everything out. All over a nice cup of tea, eh?
I found very little similarities. And I really doubt that Roger would lie about it. Besides, he said that last week. I've been thinking it was bull**** from day 1. If you think its gonna work then your mind will make it work.
If you don't want to actually believe the band when they say it was rubbish, fine. But their answers to the questions about it seemed geniune.
hah, well, i found many similarities. I mean, did you notice that all the walking was done to the beat of the songs? That alone would be enough for me, but of course the band isn't going to be honest about it, just like they weren't honest about Enigma!
