Agreed.
However, people learning to play guitar aren’t going to start with complex arrangements either. :idunno:

I know him well. On one of my playlists. One of the great banjo players.

I guess I’m the odd one out here again. I don’t like any live music except full orchestra or solo piano dude singing Elton John songs.

I prefer prefect, clinical precision without distractions.

Absolutely true. For me classical music (most of it) is so boring. Lots of trained musicians copying music sheets. No improvisation and most do not even have the ability to improvise.

Always thought the Byrds Sweetheart of the Rodeo was pretty cool and years ahead in popularizing country rock (Eagles way more popular but less innovative).

50 years later , still sounds good.

I am also a huge fan of the early Ofra Haza Yemen-Jewish tunes: (1096) Ofra Haza - Im Nin’Alu [1978] - YouTube

(1096) Ofra Haza - Imi Imi (עפרה חזה - אמי אמי) - YouTube

Her 80s pop tunes—less so.

I am predisposed to being sceptical about classical music but with that said it’s hard to argue against Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Bethoven

I was at an estate sale the the other day and picked this up for 3 bucks. Yes, it was worth three bucks. I’m applaud his self control. It’s a very nice album.

Sonic Youth has some pretty good lyrics

Is that the hot take today? :slightly_smiling_face:

I kinda like their songs with the more random lyrics.

He’s hit and miss. He has classics and he has garbage, much like the Stones.

Apparently they respected each other very much, and the fake feud gave us 3 great songs, 1 an all time great.
