With a couple of people in the cooler, we're actually having discussions without memes and insults! How refreshing! Maybe we can try to ignore the BS when it returns- I hope so. 

sdanielmcev --- 171 days ago -

I try. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 171 days ago -

Yes, you do. 

sdanielmcev --- 171 days ago -

Well, thank you. 

Markster --- 171 days ago -

 

sdanielmcev --- 171 days ago -

And away we go.... 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 171 days ago -

Oh, it's entirely possible....but you need people who actually want a discussion. But we have a problem with not only the mods but mod alts now. Lol. The denial and self accountability is so low, so stifled, that the reaching to justify bad behavior is beyond comical. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 170 days ago -

Whats a mod alt? 

Markster --- 170 days ago -

justify bad behavior is beyond comical.

You say something? Bring me a cold beer sweetie 

sdanielmcev --- 170 days ago -

And there goes civility... 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 170 days ago -

No surprise, there- 

Prolix Raconteur --- 170 days ago -

And that's why we can't have nice things. LOL 

Markster --- 170 days ago -

we can't have nice things
^^^^^sux to be you. I have nice things 

sdanielmcev --- 170 days ago -

Practice your rests, sparky.


^^^ Ok bestie, you got me there...IDK whathat means? 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 169 days ago -

Mark, I think she's referring to musical rests. You read music right? I mean you claim to be a musician. 

sdanielmcev --- 169 days ago -

Any musician would know that saying. It means the rests in music notation. 

Markster --- 169 days ago -

You read music right?

I do not, nor will I be reading any music at the House of Blues Tues the 4th 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 169 days ago -

Well that explains a lot.

Emperor of Kingwood --- 169 days ago -

How can you claim to be a musician but not read music. 

sdanielmcev --- 169 days ago -

How can you claim to be a musician but not read music. 
Singers songwriters are rarely good musicians 

Markster --- 169 days ago -

How can you claim to be a musician but not read music.

The same way I can ride a motorcycle all over the U.S. and not be a biker.

The same way I can design an offshore oil-rig and not be an engineer.

The same way I can tell Im dealing with a group of lock step pompass know it alls with out being a Dr of psychology.

I am amazing that way. Thats how.
Now be quite...Meet the Press is about to begin.

You can't.

The same way I can ride a motorcycle all over the U.S. and not be a biker.

That doesn't require any special talent or training.

We could buy sparky a spelling book for chanukah.

Up until last year when I sold my last bike, I rode for 20 years. Beyond the initial Texas licensing half day course,there's no special training or skill required. 

Markster --- 168 days ago -

Up until last year when I sold my last bike,
oh yeah I used to be a biker and I know everything about it. 20yrs, yep that makes me an expert...
posta-pozer-pleeze.
Ive been riding since 71' my current bike has over 113k miles and still runs and rides like it was new. Yes. It does take special skill and experience. There is no training for that. Does not mean it requires any. bob. 

Markster --- 168 days ago -

Great place for live music! Green Oaks Tavern Humble, Texas. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 168 days ago -

Greg Day was there last week. He's a pretty good guitar player and writes some good songs. 

SodaPopAndRitalin --- 168 days ago -

How can you claim to be a musician but not read music.

The same way that Lionel Richie, Dave Grohl, Michael Jackson, Pete Townshend, Slash, Eric Clapton, ALL of The Beatles, Robert Johnson (arguably the most influential blues singer) Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elvis Presley, Eddie Van Halen, and Jimi Hendrix can't/couldn't read and/or write music, yet call themselves musicians.

What? You going to imply that they aren't real musicians? Because YOU don't understand music and think that one isn't talented or successful unless they have some sort of formal training behind them?

Other musically illiterate musicians include Barbara Streisand and Frank Sinatra.

My drummer son played at Fitzgerald's yesterday, covering Rage Against The Machine, LIT, Foo Fighters, and Weezer and couldn't read a sheet of music to save his life. Some of the best musicians are self taught and play by ear.
I play bass (for fun) and can't read music.

Slash: "No, I can't read music, I play by ear. I try to make what I
hear (sometimes just in my head) come out my hands into the guitar. When
I write music, I usually write on my own at least to start."

Eddie Van Halen: Eddie could never read music, and he learned by watching and listening, as told in an interview. After hearing his brother play the drums at a performance, he changed from playing a drum-kit to a guitar. Listening to recitals of Bach and Mozart, he tried to
reproduce them without any practice.

Eric Clapton: "I felt so nervous, because I couldn't read music, and they were all playing from music sheets on
stands." in response to an event with Aretha Franklin

Jimi: He followed the songs
of Elvis Presley and learned music by ear. As his biography mentions, his
inability to read or write music made him focus better on the music he
heard. His praise in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, 'arguably the greatest
instrumentalist in the history of rock music', qualifies him to be the most
influential musician emerging to fame in a short span of just four years.

The Beatles: Paul has repeatedly said that he intentionally didn't learn how to read music, as he thought it would interfere with his "melodic creativity."

When Bob Dylan was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, he said it was such a thrill because he couldn't read a note of music.

Adrian Belew (discovered by Frank Zappa, played with Tom Tom Club) is a Grammy winner for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 2006 and can't read music.

Tom Morello, one of the greatest guitarists of our time, couldn't read music for a very long time.

Being able to read music has zero bearing on one's ability to play music, and play it well. NONE.

There. You learned a thing today :) 

KwMillennial --- 168 days ago -

You nailed it SPAR.

I learned to play guitar by watching YouTube videos to learn chords. Learning to play music is just about learning to do different things with your fingers. I’ve been in three different bands. One of them toured Texas, with a stop in Austin being particularly memorable. The band i’m In now plays a few gigs around Houston every month.

My brother wanted to play drums. At Riverwood, after trying out, the music teacher told him he couldn’t do it because he didn’t have the talent for it. My brother bought a drum set anyway. He never thought he was good enough to play in a band. I tried to get him to join my bands but he never did. Now that he moved to Austin, some coworkers that had been in several bands asked him to try out for a funk band they were trying to start up. My brother made the cut and has now played several gigs with them. He says he keeps with it because his band mates have described his drumming as “legendary”. Now he wants to see where it goes.

Neither one of us expect it to go anywhere. It’s just a fun hobby.

KwMillennial --- 167 days ago -

Thanks for the offer Mark, but Tuesday night is not a good night for me. I have a full time job and I’m a part time grad student. This semester I have night classes.

I know that’s not very “rock”, but I have a future to plan for and earn.

Rock on without me! 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 167 days ago -

And I will be writing songs Tuesday nite. I can't read music but I loves a good lyric
