Soul or feel?!
You mean playing the same penta boxes over and over?
This is what's soul and feel to you?
So your own music has no soul or feel cause you don't keep repeating the same penta boxes.
You're a paradox, you contradict yourself
Why some people take playing the same stuff forever as soul and feel?
I'll never understand it.
I need something that excites me, that makes my cells pump, something unexpected and with good melody.Playing the same penta boxes is COMPLETELY out of what I want from music.
So to take your 'argument' to it's inevitable conclusion; if you play the same stuff again that means you don't
have soul and feel?
You have to never
play the same thing twice to have soul and feel? (Remember that the next time you're running up or down a scale in triplets, that you've played already in the song/solo you're currently playing.)
You can't ever
use 'penta boxes' as you put it, and
have soul and feel?
I know that's not what you meant, and you'll see the point I'm making with it below...
You tend to make broad assumptions about things people say, even though they never said, or in my opinion, even alluded to what you think they meant.
I'm just trying to understand how you can take,
"but imo nobody has over taken him (Hendrix) regarding to soul or feel" and turn it into,
"'playing the same penta boxes over and over' 'is what's soul and feel'
'music has no soul or feel cause you don't keep repeating the same penta boxes.'"
Yes, I edited your statement but that's basically what you seem to have understood when you read the original text. I'm basing this assumption on your statement, "So your own music has no soul or feel cause you don't keep repeating the same penta boxes. You're a paradox, you contradict yourself"
How could he contradict himself? He never
said anything about anyone not
having soul or feel for any reason. He even stated his 'love' for Michael Angelo Batio... and he repeats himself all the time, and doesn't seem to be 'stuck' in 'penta-boxes'.)
To him, Hendrix was able to convey his soul and feeling better
than anyone else. End of idea.
That's what I got from his statement. I think I'm a lot closer to what he meant than what you came up with.
Yes, some pentatonic use there, some other scales thrown in as well... but, regardless of what chords, scales, modes, techniques he used, yes: I feel
the the soul
in this recording.
I know you feel that someone that's never recorded a song is less of a musician, not even a 'credible' musician... so I guess my opinion about music wouldn't mean anything to you anyway, even though I started learning music when I was about 3 (I'm 42), been playing guitar for 25 years, study theory non-stop, worked for a few bands, and was a tech for a little more than 10 years (not that that has anything to do with being a musician, just my facination with the mechanics of the instrument), but; since I've not put anything on tape I'm not a musician, or at least not a 'credible' one, so my opinion about music can't have any validity.
But that's not my point... it's okay to 'read between the lines' at times, but try not to add whole paragraphs to what someone has said. It's usually not productive.
(This is why my posts are usually so long. All too often people have taken short sentences of mine and totally missed what I was trying to say, and turned it into a 'discussion' that was so far off from what I meant, as to be a different conversation. I do know it's my fault when that happens since I make the wrong assumption that people will actually use common sense when they read something simple. I try to not leave any room for error in my point(s) anymore)
