with the lad being in a band it has been my great displeasure to see loads of young lads involved in fret shredding, nearly all of whom have been bloody awful


Is it time to set up a movement or school where these kids can learn how to play leccy guitar with soul and taste?

Or am I just getting old (again)  Sad

What exactly is EMO?  Heard about it but never had it explained.

I sound like an old f*rt judge in a 60s obscenity trial..............

These self indulgent guitarists who seem more interested in fitting in as many notes as possible into as short a time as possible and to hell with melody or tune should listen to the likes of SRV, Albert King, Otis Rush and others who can really play but don't forget that the technical wizardry is pointless if you don't got no soul.  Afro

Emo? Something to do with Rod Hull wasn't it?  Grin

I heard that it was slightly more derogatory - along the lines of displaying the emotianally-unhinged look - a bit like the heroin-chic nonsense but with scratches on the arms......

Shame.  EMO for me is and always will be the wonderful Emo Phillips, American comedian with the bowl haircut.

Sample:  I love to watch the children dancing in the park.  They don't know I'm only using blanks.

My point exactly.  There's thousands of the buggers.  Let's do something before they take over completely.

I like the one where he says he is driving down a hill and his brakes fail. The mechanic says he must have lost some fluid to which he replies...

As it happens, when I played on the Edinburgh Fringe in 97, Emo Phillips stayed on my street. He was a very strange man to look at and creased me up just to see him walk down the road.

You played the Fringe Matt???  Now you've got the curiosity going.  What were you doing - music, theatre, comedy or performance art?

I had a very similar set up to Taxi Hailer except it was three guys (including myself) and a lass playing acoustics and singing 4 part harmonies. We were in a very small venue, a church hall, but part of the Fringe nontheless and we really had no more 30 people of a night. We did two nights and quite a few came back to see us. We got expenses and free accomodation slap bang in the middle of Edinburgh which was amazing during that week. I was a little skint at the time so saw very few shows. Well infact 1 show which was Roger McGough who was amazing. One of the best weeks of my life.

Matt and David,

You two are absolute masters at wandering off at a tangent!

If you want to do that, that's fine but please don't keep taking the topics with you.

Cheers
