Hearing Enola Gay always makes me think of this one:




Must be the line

"You are a khaki coloured bombadier it's Hiroshima that you're nearing" in the second verse.

I love Sparks, simply for being Sparks Big smile 

You're right Ben too about Enola Gay, it's an amazingly catchy and unusual pop song.

If you want /need to know how really cack you are playing the guitar, watch this. I stood next to this guy at the Hop Farm fest - he was there to see Newton Falkner...

Here is my post suggestion for today:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvRegdR61DU

I absolutely love the guitar playing on this one. I'm not a boyzone fan but I would love this track. Such simple chords on the guitar and yet such a simple song.

I can also relate to the lyrics because it is for someone who is very much in love.  Time for me to reveal it then and is dedicated for a certain colleague of mine (he knows who he is Smile), But then I don't want to embarress either of us, as it's not very professional to make it known esp in front of clients. Mixing work and pleasure is never a good idea but you know it works for us.

@ Liam - am seriously thinking about learning to play guitar again and would welcome any tips as I have forgotten chords completely amongst other things.

Enjoy it Smile.

"I can't conceal this way I feel.....
"I think it's time for me to reveal it, because I believe it......"

"see what i am trying to say is, you make things better..
and no matter what the day is, if your're here, it's better".....

Regards
HW, SE Reptile Ecologist

PS: Hope you can understand why I haven't put his name......

Rob

I have kept quiet as I have the musical taste, appreciation, aptitude, skill and knowledge of a stone deaf kipper - but that is truly superb guitar work!

Excellent clip Rob, I love it when the videos clearly show what the guitarist is doing Thumbs Up (Shame though it goes out of sink as mentioned in the write up)

Sorry SE - couldn't bring myself to listen to more than 2 bars of Boyzone, shame on me eh?


Here are my best tips for learning chords:

First learn Major, minor, augmented and diminished triads all over the fret board in different keys - if you take the 'book' approach of learning a handful of open chords first they don't make much sense.

When you learn all the triads (it isn't as much as it sounds as they are moveable forms), look at doubling notes in them to make chord shapes and you'll then have all the basic 'book' chords and understand where they came from.

When you get bored of that build triads on the notes of scales. (Harmonized Major and Minor scales are good place to start)

Then figure out how Seventh chords are built from the diatonic major and minor scales. Learn diminished chords, , ninths, suspended fourths, sixths, Elevenths and extended chords and Polychords.

before you know it there isn't much else to learn, other of course than spending the rest of your life figuring out how to use them in the best context LOL (or throwing all that learning away and buying an electric guitar and playing power chords all day long Smile)

Well it all sounds very happy in SE Land!  How exciting.  Though I don't think that even Boyzone can make good music about happy events.  For quality music you really need some quality misery, with a generous topping of angst.  If you've ever loved and lost, or loved and never had, then this might ... ahem ... strike a chord.

Nice one tim, I think I've been missing out there, need to listen to a lot more Pearl Jam I think.

Whilst in doom and gloom mode, can't resist this one Wink




PS if that isn't the living proof that the Sisters of Mercy were a goth band I don't know what is LOL

Gemma - glad you liked it.  I suggest you start with their first album "Ten".  If looking on YouTube, the tracks Alive, Jeremy, Even Flow, Porch, Garden etc.

(Hope that doesn't count as a double post for today.)
