Lo-fi blues [Sep. 14th, 2006|10:19 pm]
Blues Bands Community

Hello, everybody, I am new to this community. As a brief introduction of myself, I would like to offer you to check out a couple of old-school numbers that me and my friend have put together. They are completely improvised and were recorded using some bad guitars due to a lack of proper instruments and recording devices. They can be found at www.audiostreet.net/thedarkestday. Disregard "Thompson Blues", this was our take on death metal, but another couple of songs are pure blues. As I said, everything was improvised on the spot, including lyrics, so, please, don't be too harsh! :)

             Hey, players.

I'd like to bring something to your attention that you've probably not given a lot of thought: The blues patterns.

When you think about it, the patterns used in standard blues charts:  "1,1,1,1,4,4,1,1,5,4,1,1" of the 12-bar, and different variations on it, are very simple.  So is the general pattern of all blues songs I can think of: First a bit of song, then a bit of improvisation.  Then song again, and then more improvisation.  The lines rhyme as well, and follow aabbccdd.

Now, I'm not saying that the fact that the blues is very simple makes it any less valuable - quite the opposite!  If the blues was any more complex than how it is, it wouldn't be able to express what it's well-known for.  It wouldn't be able to express the raw, driving emotion behind the singer's words.

Also, the blues is really where the first instance of improvisation came.  The rags of the early 1900s weren't improvisation at all, just being syncopated piano/instrumental/voice music.  You have to go all the way back to the Baroque era to find improvisation, and that's not syncopated at all.

In any case, I thought this post might get some discussion into this (long-abandoned) usergroup.  Do you agree?  Disagree?  Think I'm a complete moron for even thinking any of what I just wrote?

Thank you for your time,

David "Dagfari" Alexander.

p.s. Try to guess my age...

p.p.s. Lower.

p.p.p.p.s. I'm seventeen.

[music |Robert Johnson - Robert Johnson - Crossroads]

Hey, I just found the community. Thought I stop in a offer a few thoughts.

I've been palying guitar for the last 14 years (most of which is the blues). Off all of the other music forms out there, blues (to me) seems the most pure, the most honest form of expression.

Regardless of whether you're into Robert Johnson, Elmore James, Little Walter, BB King, SRV, Eric Clapton, KWS or anybody else for that matter. Listen close and you'll here something that you don't hear in alot of the other music of today...Soul.

That's my 2 cents anyway.
