clapton hasn't really evolved at all in 20 years.

I've noticed, sadly, that I haven't seen much from... well I can't think of really anyone.

I, as well as many people here it seems, can't imagine not continuing this ever going process of creating music and being a better guitarist. To me, a huge part of that is 'evolving'. That is, 'mastering' style to style to style.

Not to say these guitarists aren't still learning and becoming better, but I want to see Jimmy put out a Flamenco album, or Clapton to release an Eastern influenced album.
Or even Steve Beck to release a classical ablum! laugh.gif

Personally, I can't imagine just being just a 'blues guitarist'.

Ride: why do you think that Clapton has not evolved over the last 20 years. I think you are wrong. Clapton has evolved measureably over the last 20 years, and if you listen to his music over the years you will find that he has got better at what he does, and developed his style of playing to become one of the best at what he does.

HeteroBoy: What is wrong with being "just a blues guitarist" I can`t think of a better genre to be "just" at.

Amen brother.

He was just the bass player and a vocalist, George and John did the core songwriting for the band as far as I know and it really shows.

I don't know where to begin with that statement. I think I'll start with howling laughter.

Right, now I've done that, here's a list of just some of the legendary Beatles songs Paul wrote:

Eleanor Rigby
Yellow Submarine
Let It Be
Get Back
Hey Jude
All My Loving
And I Love Her
The Long And Winding Road
Back In The USSR
Mother Nature's Son
Penny Lane
Hello Goodbye
Lady Madonna
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Lovely Rita
Can't Buy Me Love
We Can Work It Out
Drive My Car
The Fool On The Hill
For No One
Good Day Sunshine
Got To Get You Into My Life
Helter Skelter
Here, There And Everywhere
I'm Down
I Saw Her Standing There
Magical Mystery Tour
Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
Paperback Writer
She's Leaving Home
When I'm Sixty-Four

I'd say that's a pretty f*cking good contribution for starters. And if anyone was driving their musical direction more than the others, it was Paul. If it weren't for him, the last two albums wouldn't have been done at all.

My thoughts, and yes i sort of grimaced and laughed at the same time when i read that.

Lets face it AS, your information is a little off, perhaps you should do some reading. But there again, when hasn`t your information been a little off.

Lennon Co-Wrote many of those songs. Every song the BEatles wrote was truly a team effort.

#3000052 Robert Johnson

Posted by Hobs911 on 29 April 2008 - 06:55 AM in Guitar Q & A

Eric Clapton ,in my opinion, has improved greatly since his days in Cream and with John Mayall. He is a blues player and just Like SRV,Gary Moore,Warren Haynes,Derek Trucks,Santana,etc. It's the feeling they put it into their music not the diversity of their licks and phrases,although all of them are very diverse. SRV once said"When I follow my heart and let it flow out I always play better. Its when I start thinking about where I am on the fretboard and what phrases im playing thats when I start to mess up." I believe most of all great guitarist play like this weather they know it or not. Notice the "LOST" face on many of the blues greats-Clapton,SRV,Hendrix,Warren Hayens, they almost always seem to be "lost" in their music and its just pouring out of them. The years of excessive drug use (dont think Warren did this)may give them this lost look, but I belive its them playing from their heart not their hands.

As for Robert Johnson he is a true inspiration. I just hate his ability to play so well at such a young age is covered up by myth and folklore.

What about the stock market and Buisnesses and television and radio. These all rely on the internet. What about credit and debit cards they are processed through the internet. Banks,gas stations,restraunts, they all rely.

I was in school when the Beatles music hit the US. I remember discussions in the locker room while getting ready for basketball practice about them. We were uncertain about them, I didn't care much for the early songs that were being played on radio, but thought they were cool as individuals, and some of us soon had the hair and were pressured by the administration to get it cut. A group of us had this deal going that the first of us to get a haircut had to buy dinner for the rest of the group. We were some shaggy Okies in the mid 60's.

We could get the signal from the WLS station in Chicago late at night, and they would play the three top most requested songs in the Chicago land area, at ten....usually it would be three Beatles tunes. I would listen to that, and got to where I began to think their music was indeed pretty good. I eventually got to be a fan of their music.

Recently I watched that video Across the Universe, and was reminded how good their stuff actually was.

I've never watched it I am afraid I won't like it. If the 2008 generation of teens like this movie I dont think I would.

South Park brought up a good point. What if for some reason all the internet in the world was gone. The world would be in complete chaos. I wonder if it is posssible for someone to "turn off" the Internet?

Like a few of the older members on this forum, i grew up listening to the Beatles. They are part of my life. I have always enjoyed their music, and i guess i always will, their songs never become old, infact quite the opposite, i am constantly rediscovering their music, as i learn to play their songs. biggrin.gif

Being from Alabama where The Beatles were looked down upon in their early days I know no real older beatles fans. I am only 30 minutes away from Birmingham,Alabama ,where in the late 60's, a bunch of morons who had their southern Baptist religious beliefs all backwards while KKK and other town members decided to hold a rally and get everyone to come to town and burn their Beatles records. Fortanly my parents and grandparents were
too far in the country to even know who the Beatles were haha (moonshine and bluegrass were more there bag)so they never herd Lennon SAY WHAT ALABAMIANS INTERPRET as "BEATLES ARE BIGGER THAN JESUS". I guess they were too busy planning lynchings and performing hate crimes(note: none of my family that I have ever know were involved in these, well my grandfather was a Moonishiner and Preacher haha needless to say everyone came to church) anyways moral of story not many old Bealtes fans round here.

#2997101 The Beatles

Posted by Hobs911 on 22 April 2008 - 06:39 AM in Discussion

I am a Beatles fan and have been for a few years. I love the way they, like the Grateful Dead , make up characters or settings and describe them. Dr. RObert, Mr. Kite, Polythene Pam, Penny Lane(setting), Mr. Mustard, etc.. It seems for most people if you like one Beatles song you will like most other Beatles songs. The White Album and Revolver seem to me to be some of there best work. I guess i just want someone to talk Beatles with so enlighten me.

#2988990 Blues

Posted by Hobs911 on 03 April 2008 - 07:38 AM in Guitar Q & A

Stormy Monday- Allman Brothers Band

Gov't Mule- Look over Yonder Wall, 32/20 Blues

Eric Clapton from "Me and MR. Johnson" album- "Come on in My Kitchen, 32/20 Blues)

Stevie ray Vaughan-Look at little sister

I know it can be hard to understand all this when you start out but blues is very simple. To start just play an "E A E B7 A E" chord progression and practice soloing in you E key in frets 12 and 14. That will get you able to improvise over a progression in no time youll be soloing over any key.

For some reason i was expecting a dog to join in when you all did the harmonization of the vocals, infact i think a dog should join in. laugh.gif I enjoyed that, and yes the tone on the strat did sound tinny.

Yeah were all a little to southern. The drummer can sing better than me but I couldnt carry a tune in a briefcase.

Posted by Hobs911 on 26 February 2008 - 07:40 AM in Guitar Q & A

I bought the same guitar a few years back. It has a built in sustainer and the floyd rose were realy the only perks of it. Im not sure of the model it was eventually droped and quit working. How much did you pay i pay about $200.00
