Modes of Thought

There are 7 whole notes in the western musical scale and Major is minor.
Modes its Where you Start
Harmony is where you finish
Melody is how you feel about it
Rythym is Praxis
Enharmonic is a signpost to Plurality but its called according to which direction you approach it from.

I just listened to a Lecture on Goethe and Kant and truth and freedom(1) I think Robert Johnson may well have seen the Boris Karlov silent movie of Faust. I also watched the Wizard of Oz with my Kids last night, the Scarecrow wasn't tuning Guitars at the Crossroads and the Wizard gave him a diploma but really said its within ourselves an Inherent intuition Kant called it a priori knowledge.

A few Goethe Quotes

We know accurately only when we know little, with knowledge doubt increases.

The effects of good music are not just because it's new; on the contrary music strikes us more the more familiar we are with it.

All theory, dear friend, is gray, but the golden tree of life springs ever green.
 read my own post and remembered this really funny link i looked at posted at the acmebargig beta testing bulletin board.

Its called the Contempory composers bullshit generator and is very funny

The Contemporary Classical Composer's Bullshit Generator

My most personal mechanism always features strongly in any of my quartal compositions. I was first introduced to the concept of 'eclecticly-Stockhausenesque orchestration-illusions' last year, and it has allowed me a greater depth of installations, especially whilst developing the ultimate mechanism. My goal, in essence, is to layer musical recordings. My latest composition explores the boundaries between sounds and conflicts, whilst utilising a highly apparent attitude to a traditional, periodic sculpture. I am very much influenced by the idea of contextualising theoretical intricacies, particularly whilst combined with a highly tonal approach to meanings. The fact that tessituras tend to (at least in their repetitive state), textually compose, even in the presence of a strong material, is, you will agree, patently absurd.

 It took me a long time to develop my ear a balance of both is a way to Work Smart and learn smart use whats there but aim for this ( one of the best lessons on You tube this)

My other 3 favourite lessons Ever.

Eureka Moment this one for me. Plurality is an amazing concept and not only in Music

Chord construction learn how they work not what they are Intervals ( ear training is the key to understanding Intervals its like a Chef testing for seasoning)

Finally Pitch Access


Bill Edwards Fret Board Logic and Michael Lydon Six Swinginbg Strings and Ralph Denyer Guitar Hand Book and the guitar for dummies Series.

Two of the greats of You Tube Justin Sanderscoe and Andrew Wasson.

Whatever works for you but Cotton wool in the ears isn't likely to assist at least at the beginning. Beethoven only went deaf later.

If you can afford to spend a little time with a Teacher then great if not seek out someone further down the line than you and steal their Licks ( people have been doing that longer than the record industry has existed

And Robben Ford on What are the essentials

I watched this video regarding the basics on Robin Fords Guitar Dojo site the other day
and thought it was pretty good. Harmony Rhythm melody but mostly Rhythm. With Rhythm on your side you can busk to anything.

Meet The Fuggers, Brexit, The Euro and Clueless Elites.

Meet the Fuggers or, its the Money Power stupid. Brexit, The Euro and clueless Elites.

The Eastern Roman empire under Justinian saw the seeds of its final fall to The Ottomans when Abd El Melik started paying tribute in Gold coinage under his own Political Branding you might say.

With all the talk of Brexit being the removal of a final obstacle to the deeper federation of a European State transcending tiresome nationalism, perhaps a little review of History, particularly Monetary history, might not be such a bad thing.

In the review of European competences carried out as a consultation by the foreign office regarding Brexit and or reform requirements of the Eu, two of the papers need to be considered in the context of the Money power argument.

The first paper considered is the Subsidiarity and proportionality aspects of the Lisbon treaty and the competences of the EU institutions vis National and regional democratic institutions. This is a trade-off between Centralised Efficiency and …

Things are really hotting up on the Future Prospects of the Petro Dollar. Climate Change particularly the AGW CO2 Narrative is clung to with religious zeal and promoted by Finance Elites, why is that?
