  1. D'yer Mak'er No Quarter T.S.R.T.S. The Rain Song (studio versions only) ummm----Hot Dog
  2. Eh Buckoes. I think he says "different people there",with the pronunciation a bit soft on the end of "different",making it sound "diffrint". I always sing it this way:never got kicked out of any venue.(yet)
  3. TSRTS. Persy was still in good vocal health. Try holding a high C for eight seconds.
  4. Ya gotta make good use o' yer time 'round 'ol Percy.
  5. I'd just have a few drinks,play some blues,shoot the shit,etc. Might even show him some of the stuff I wrote in the '70 but never had time or money to get into the studio with. Probably be a good laugh.
  6. If you wish to view a short harmonica solo by Namregoob,search mrcayococo on youtube.
  7. Most discusting. But good harmony on the Beatley one. Try searching mrcayococo on you tube. He's nuts.
  8. Yeah,big guff on me. I didn't notice the link to the chart. That'll teach me to log on late at night. Any way, the blown cord on a 10 hole,20 note diatonic harmonica is a natural 1,3,5 cord,the draw cord is a 7th,five chromatic steps higher.(5 guitar frets). This allows it to be played in either coresponding key. An A harmonica can be can be used to play a song in the key of A (straight harp),or the key of E (cross harp). This is normal blues method,almost playing backwards. It's also called second position. When I teach a new player,I tell them to whistle by drawing in,and learn a scale. This helps them develope the note bending ability necessary for blues playing. There is also a third position in blues playing,where a D harmonica can be used in the key of E. It produces some interesting sounds.
  9. This is a harmonica cross harp key ref. Song key on left,harp key on right. A-------D Bflat---Eflat B-------E C-------F Csharp--Fsharp D-------G Eflat---Gsharp E-------A F-------Bflat Fsharp--B G-------C Gsharp--Csharp If you are learning blues harmonica,search Adam Gussow. Namregoob
  10. I found it a decent read. Stairway To Heaven-Led Zepplin unsensored by Richard Cole is also worth a squint.
  11. Jonesy was the "ultimate" side man,in Led Zepplin.
  12. It's in the genes. There are four natural ranges for the male (adult) voice,starting with bass and ending in tenor. A bass singer will have longer,fatter vocal cords than a tenor,who will have shorter,thinner vocal cords. This is similar to stringed instruments,but unlike a stringed instrument,the pitch is varried soley by tensioning. The tenor range tops off at high c, where as a good bass should be able to sing a low f. Some singers can break out of their range,which brings us terms such as bass baritone,or at the exstream end,meso saprano,for the female voice. Often a bass singer can sing tenor notes by breaking(switching to falseto)their voice. On the other hand a natural tenor will find it difficult to sing very far into the bass range but can often sing saprano notes in falseto. Yodleing is usually done in falseto. With practice the break over can be done very smoothly. The vocal cords are just two muscular bands suspended in a cartalagenous frame work,positioned so air can be forced thru them. It's a simple structure,but a well trained human voice produces more overtones than most stringed instruments! This is what makes vocal harmony sound so good. Black singers naurally have a more robustly structured larnyx,producing a stronger sound. That's why Tina can still nail it!! And tenors are not that rare,me son,I is one. Cheers!
