Other kinds of music you play? 

When I was in high school I got really into blues and fingerpicking, on a steel string of course. John Fahey was my first real solo guitar "hero". I've been dipping my toe back into that, without the proper guitar ...it's really fun and different from flamenco to pick out the melodies over the alternating bass lines though. Just curious what other styles of music people like to play.

Cool Andy!

A little moonshine whisky with it and it is perfect😉

I like to play the chromatic harmonica for other music. Mostly old stuf from the 40ties and 50ties.
Saint Luis Blues, Peace in the valley, La vie en rose, from piaf, etc.

Nice to do for a little break😃

Slightly tempted by buying an electric and trying some Jeff Beck style fingerpicking. However it isn't the non-flamenco music I listen to, which tends to be electronic.

Thanks! That sounds really nice. I really want to learn John Fahey's version of Saint Louis Blues. Love Django Reinhardt's too.

Ole Ramzi el Tanguero!

mrstwinkle so much good music out there!

A lot of us come from a rock/indy background. Myself from six-string electric and bass. Nowadays, I occasionally play some electric blues.

RE: Other kinds of music you play? (in reply to Andy Culpepper

If I'm not playing flamenco, I'm usually playing jazz tunes, or working jazz concepts. I love the different sounds that various scale choices make over different chords, and also the feeling when you play over changes. The weird thing is I have little desire listen to a ton of jazz. I love the musical challenge but really prefer flamenco to jazz as far as listening or playing. Once in a blue moon I'll do a rock gig, which can be fun but gets old fast.

I've always felt like jazz separates the "real" musicians from the amateurs. I've never come close to wrapping my head around it...

I still have an original vinyl recording of John Fahey's album "The Transfiguration of blind Joe Death." My favorite piece on the album, which I still listen to once in awhile, is "Orinda Moraga," which really highlights Fahey's style of playing.

That is a nice tune. Basically another version of the old "Vastopol" open D theme. I love Fahey's straight-ahead traditional stuff as well as his more out-there long form compositional material. This piece is incredibly haunting if you listen to it all the way though:

Nice. Probably a big influence on this guy 10 or 12 years later when he first recorded this stuff:

Wow, never heard that guy before. Very cool. He's got a little bit of farting bass going on there

Edit: actually I knew his piano stuff, strangely.

RE: Other kinds of music you play? (in reply to Andy Culpepper

There's an endlessly fascinating series of options that present themselves in terms of chords inversions, melodic choices, and chord substitutions in the simplest jazz standards. It's my plan to prevent alzheimer's. If I can figure out how to play over crazy changes, maybe my brain won't turn to mush....

I’ve always been into, and tried to play, most kinds of music except Country and Rap. But my first love was always, and remains, folk music, from whatever country. The developments never fail to amaze me.

For instance, how about this?

Very nice! It's hard to go wrong with folk music from any part of the world. Actually I've long held that hip-hop/rap is a form of folk music. It's an organic, region-specific style of music that originally used simple and readily available instruments (voice, turntables) and tells the story of that specific group of people.

For me mostly all kinds of jazz, but I play mostly along with videos.
Lately I've been challenging myself into playing along with songs with (for me) odd meters.

Here is one in 7/8 I've been enjoying already for a while:




and here is another one:



I think it's basically 4 bars of 4/4 but in the 4th you add one more beat. I now managed to play along with riff starting at 0:29 consisting mostly of two notes :p.

Not my cup of tea, it's way hurried, unmusical, hectic even. I would file it under "overly shredded, missing the point completely... with a silly hat and unconvincing shades"
