Earl Scruggs

So Yes I like Metal, but that isn't all I like as anyone who reads my blog can tell.... So today on the news I saw that Earl Scruggs died... Now from what I read on line he is credited for how Blue Grass sound.... What I mean is something that I don't get about how he plays with 3 fingers and how his sound got adopted..... That being said I thought that the least I could do is post some youtube videos of what I find......

I admit I don't know if there where be singing or if it will just be Banjo but at least it makes good music to listen to as one reads facebook updates....HA.... But true?













Beverly Hillbillys.....




That is plenty maybe I'll look for more when I have more time...

For e:tinypliny and Christmas Music

Thought you would find this 1st Video Funny Wait till they mock out Justin Bieber and at the end.... Ok this video has another bit right after it... Guess cause it is Youtube and not the SNL site.... Besides I wouldn't know how to most from there......



Here is the non mockery and Him singing for non comedy he is pretty good..... Again this is from youtube not SNL's site since I don't know how to share from there on (e:strip).....





Yes Sometimes Dealing with this holiday is tough But I love the music... Now I know some people might not like this guy and I'm not a huge fan but these two songs are great... Wonder if I could handle an entire Album?

Now one thing is I don't want to just go all over youtube and put up like 2hrs of Christmas music..... For examples... I think one reason for liking Christmas music is that many of the songs are a sound you only hear at Christmas.... What I mean is if you as an example of those two videos how often do you see them play violins on the radio... Now granted some songs change cause every time someone covers them they put their flavor on it..... Yes there are some songs that aren't about Christmas but get put into that..... To me the songs aren't ever really about buying stuff it is all about being with friends or family or love and those types of things?

As an example thought I would use Baby It's cold outside Just the dean Martin Version... The Sexuality in this song is so strong... Now of course it is from a different era... But has nothing to do with Christmas but it is the only time you hear it..... Yes love the Glee version from the show but gotta go with the original....

1920's Youtube

Now I'm not going to lie and say I know anything about this type of old music. I can't even say it is all from the 20's or 20's and 30's but it is what I find on youtube and what sounds good to me.....

















Well seeing as I just lost internet for a minute don't wont to lose the entire post.....

Metallica Bugs Bunny?

So I've been kinda wanting to post about this from time and as crazy as it sounds I'll just state the main point then get to other thoughts kinda around it....

I like Metallica Because of Bugs Bunny!

Now why does anyone like any band? Well there are really a bunch of factors:
- Some how you have to hear the bands music... how does that happen is it a friend...
--Well friends do cause you to like and dislike stuff you wouldn't with out them.. Some times you listen to a song and kinda vibe off each other...
- Yes there is still this thing called the radio... Now in this form you can here a band but not know all the songs just the ones that they play
- Don't know to much about how listening to a certain band on line really goes down I know some bands have gotten found that way or on Youtube and I put this in kinda the CD way that you can here a bunch of a bands music.....
- Live is the best way though or it can be... Granted bands sound different live and when a band opens and you expect nothing (hey all bands opened at one time pretty much) and they are great.... Wow you get blown away.. Some bands have a great CD but are crappy live and some bands are so much fun live a CD would never do them Justice.... Speaking of that one thing that Kept me a fan of Mettalica was when I saw them Live (not sure where the 1st time was guessing the AUD) they sounded a lot like how they did on Tape (yes a copy of a copy sometimes).....

-There is more then just the music though...
Mettalica again is a good example of this.... I hated the entire napster thing and if I wasn't such a big fan they would have got left in the dust.. I like Limp Bizkit but Durst is a Dick and that is why many people won't listen to his music.... So I'm saying who the band is and how they promote them selves. This is also about whom the band seems to be... Some of this is also shown on the live shows.. Take Sum 41 decent band... They do this thing where they have their Alter Egos "Pain for Pleasure" come out... Yes same guys and they cover metal and are great wish they came out with an album.... What I also like is that on stage they get cheered and say stuff like "Hey we are just a shitty Canadian Punk Band" They Might say pop punk been years but it still means the same thing it is so great they admit that.....

-What Type of music it is....
Now of course their will be some acts that one likes that are out of there Genre... But as good as Ice Cube might be if you can't get into rap you won't like him.... There are people who only listen To metal with the growling or people who only listen to country or what ever and that is fine that isn't me... People see the long hair so they might think Metal head but that isn't true yeah some metal I like but try to find metal isn't so easy... Now what is odd though is that think back some ways that their was a Time "The Hair Bands" where a part of Metal.... Motley Crue I get but Poison?

The Sound....

I think that really every band has a certain sound... Yes some bands do sound like other bands and to be honest unless they have some of the same members or same singer that isn't good for either band...

Take Cold Play I love how they sound. Now what type of music are they I have no idea but I'm sure of that Genre they are the only band I like. Never seen them live but they are amazing... Wait I take that back a bit is Muze the same type cause they are great as well.....

Now often times you hear people say "All there songs sound the same".. Now I won't lie for a few bands a song starts you know the band but go is this that song or this song and until they sing you don't know the song... But most bands this isn't true.... But with most bands there is this kinda sound (even if just the lead singer) that kinda comes from that band... This is tough to explain you would kinda have to hear it but if you like a band you know what I mean (assuming anyone reads this).....

Ok Back to Metallica
-Did someone introduce me to them sure and is that a factor sure but If I didn't like it I would have stopped listening...
-After I got into them I found out Bay Area oh yeah and that dude in Megadeth they kicked out... Awesome wait this guy isn't the 1st base player what.... Oh my they are getting that dude who played with Ozzy he is awesome wonder how he will effect the new stuff....

But at the end of the day it comes down to how they sound... To me every CD (yes I heard them before I knew what the songs where called) is a bit different... Now song meanings I won't touch cause everyone takes what words they hear and give them their own meanings based on their own perspective. I will admit that new one is all over the place and if any other band took the old style and mixed in jam band I think I would think it sucks but they are my favorite band... Some of that load and reload stuff was out there... I don't even know if they do that stuff live any more really? But I also thought it was good...

Now in terms of a blog no one really knows if anyone is reading this or not but if they are (In this case you on TV I just did a moonlighting and broke the 3rd wall) now I still haven't said why Bugs Bunny is why I like Metallica. so here it is.... There have been many great bugs bunny cartoons hey who doesn't love that show... Some of them have great classical music in them... Or at the very least ones that fit the cartoon perfectly.... Anyone who says they don't like Classical music just doesn't know they like it... Now you might not think about that star wars music, or the music in Malcolm X but that very dramatic scene is made so by the Dramatic Classical music... Oh yeah by the way Music is an art so yes Music is Art.... I don't know if that is where I first head classical music but I'm sure when one hears it they go sounds like Bugs or wait is Indy going to make or is that rock going to get him? But I'm saying Bugs is what got me to like the music.... When I first heard Metallica they seemed to be kinda based of Classical music.... I also think this is why when they did the stuff with the Philharmonic it worked so well..... But hey that is just me so.... I also think that sound is why I like some metal but isn't a metal head?

Pulp Music

Thinking this will be kinda rock-a-billy but I call it "Pulp Music"





That song is the one the Black Eyed Peas Barrow .... Now one may ask how do you learn music from a movie... But most good movies are good cause they have great music that fits the scene........

Another one by Dick Dale


Video is all over the place but here is one of Rumble



Hope to look for more with more time

True Blood Blue Grass?

I really like this song yes it is a bit short.... Or maybe it is just because I'm a true blood fan but in any event I thought I should post this....



Same Guy doing Please don't go but it sure sounds like other things then just his Guitar



Is This more Blues again same guy



So I typed bluegrass into you tube and found this Japanese Blue Grass no idea what they are saying or what song it is.....



This blows my mind it really does again Japanese Blue Grass (English)



When I heard this I thought it was a joke this is a piece on Steve martin doing blue grass.......







This was a quick post I don't really have the knowledge of music to really look a bunch of stuff up there is still a song I'm looking for but have no idea the band or song but oh well.... This beats posting pictures from the Bandits losing effort on Sat. night for now I guess.......

Friday The Skiffle Minstrels

So On Friday I went to The Sportmen's Tavern for the first time to see The Skiffle Minstrels It was a great time I didn't stay for all it turned out I got to see a full set though.... I have to say even though I don't watch Baseball it was a hard not to watch bits and pieces of it on that HD TV it sure looked good.... With the light and where I was shooting the pictures aren't the best......
