  1. I don't think the type of strings you use are going to make a difference in how well you play the song. Plus I don't think Earthwoods were manufactured until 1972.
  2. I'm pretty sure the Rolling Stones and Martin Scorsese did this exact same thing with Shine A Light a couple years back. I do agree that it should be released as a film to be shown in theaters. That would be pretty cool. But I can also understand what an emotional toll that performance must have taken on the band, then add on to that having to go back through it all and watch/edit/prepare it for release. I wouldn't want to have to go through that myself.
  3. I can't agree with Conor Oberst or Devendra Banhart. Their voices are an important characteristic of their music. They're part of an artistic whole, not just thrown in to add a human voice to organized sound. I personally love their voices.
  4. Not sure if they've been mentioned, but bands everyone should get into: Radiohead The Warlocks Dead Weather The Telescopes Wolf Parade Swan Lake Sunset Rubdown The Black Keys The Black Lips Grizzly Bear Sparklehorse Songs: Ohia Spiritualized And then there's a ton of others I can't quite remember at the moment. Those are all top bands in my book though.
  5. I'm as big a Dylan fan as any but I didn't like Together Through Life. I only gave it one listen and it sounded so contrived and poorly thought out. This duo will probably turn out to be a giant waste of everyone's time. But it could also be quite good. The Fireman release was brilliant, though. I truly enjoyed that.
  6. I don't know if this is a mystery or not, but I was reading this thread earlier and I've enjoyed it thus far... My mystery may not be one at all, but I was just wondering.. Steve (or anyone, really): Do you know when/how the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary reunion came about? Were they asked to do a set or had they been rehearsing beforehand? How long had they rehearsed before the show? When did they choose Jason? Was he 1st pick? How did they all feel about the performance? Personally I hold this set high on my list of live recordings solely because it was my introduction to Led Ze
  7. I wouldn't buy them, that's for sure... I've already spent enough on all the studio albums on CD, some on vinyl and all the DVDs they've released (and still waiting for TSRTS collector's edition DVD set I paid for that hasn't come in yet...?) so I don't really think I need to give Led Zeppelin, Inc. any more of my money, that's for sure. Besides... if you really there's a huge difference between SACD and standard CD *sonically*, you must be tweaking. If you listen to either with a decent stereo and speaker set-up, they'll sound pretty much identical, but the SACD might be louder... But then
  8. Wrong. The common man should have nothing to do with making music. That's the problem with music today. Everyone thinks they can do it. This is false. Yes. Yes. That is the definition of plagiarism: taking credit for something written by someone else. Nope. It's still the same. If you try to take credit for someone else's work you're breaking a law. There are only a few lyrical changes, but the words are about 98% the same... And they're still Dylan's property. And if Hendrix had taken credit for it I'm sure Dylan would have sued as fast as he could've. Especially consi
  9. Maybe #2 had a curved bridge put in for use with the bow, but that's only what I've heard... I can't be too sure about it though...
  10. Great thread. No order, of course... Like 'em all equally... Blind Reverend Johnson Elmore James Muddy Waters Robert Johnson Howlin' Wolf
  11. They started out as a cover band... Look at their first album: - "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" originally by Anne Bredon - "You Shook Me" was originally a Willie Dixon song - "Dazed and Confused" was originally by Jake Holmes ("I'm Confused"), but arranged by Page and the drummer of the Yardbirds, including some lyric changes - "Black Mountain Side" is a traditional piece (?) but was played by Anne Briggs, who also taught it to Bert Jansch, called "Black Waterside" - "Communication Breakdown" is considered similar to Eddie Cochran's "Nervous Breakdown" - "I Can't Quit You Baby" was also o
  12. I didn't say EVERYONE should stay in their own genre... I said Snoop should... His "covers" (samples, really), in my opinion, suck big time. And FWIW, I've liked the Gourds' cover of Gin n' Juice since I heard. Funny stuff.
  13. Death Don't Have No Mercy - Grateful Dead (from their DeadLive album)... Good stuff
  14. Yeah, that wasn't too bad actually... Well, all of Puffy's lyrics sucked, but Page's was great. It had a great feel to it... Take Puffy out and it was a great song... As for Snoop doing Cash... He needs to stay in his own genre... He already destroyed the Doors' Riders on the Storm...
