Re: Learning resources - Which is more effective?


Here are the lyrics, we had some really bad rock mikes in those days. Yeah ROCK MIKES, get it.

My Back Pages

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin’ high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
“We’ll meet on edges, soon,” said I
Proud ’neath heated brow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now
Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
“Rip down all hate,” I screamed
Lies that life is black and white
Spoke from my skull. I dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers
Foundationed deep, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now
Girls’ faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought of, though, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now
A self-ordained professor’s tongue
Too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty
Is just equality in school
“Equality,” I spoke the word
As if a wedding vow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now
In a soldier’s stance, I aimed my hand
At the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not that I’d become my enemy
In the instant that I preach
My pathway led by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now
Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

Wow.

That's a tad bit scary.

It's a Viet Nam War protest song. Bob Dylan is still a genius. About the same age as Jagger. I think.

Oh I wasn't talking about the song.

I was talking about you hitting your wife with a cave man club!

Next time spit the gum out, all I heard was garble.

Besides she likes it. She just won't admit it.

Re: Learning resources - Which is more effective?


Here I go again - I'll say I'm on the fence about it.

When I was younger, there were no videos, so as I took lessons, music notation was the only way to get the point across. I learned to really break phrases down and all that.

The first time I saw a video of a snare drummer performing a rudimental piece, what he sounded like and played DID NOT match up with what I was reading. I'll admit it was rather advanced and perhaps it was correct, but I couldn't tell. When I learned how to play what was written, I didn't sound or look anything like the guy in the video.

So, I'm not totally against videos, but sometimes it can be just another way of "learning by ear", or in this case, "eyes", without really understanding what was written in the first place. It's like getting a tape of a song to learn how to play it.

I say, you should learn how to do stuff as they do it in the real world. If I get called for a recording session and they want to send me a DVD of another guy playing what they want me to do, then I'll learn that way. No way in hell that's ever gonna happen, though. So I continue to work the old-fashioned way: music notation and reading. And a real teacher!
