[06/02/14] I've got a sulky dog. I know for a fact that he'd be playing a steel body guitar and singing about the horrible things that happened since he woke up this morning, had he been born with thumbs and human vocal chords.

The melodic minor scale is special because the ascending scale differs from the descending scale. On the way down you play an ordinary natural minor but on the way up you raise the 6th and 7th degrees by one semitone.
The reason for this is completely unknown, by anybody, anywhere.
Lots of free time at the weekend if you'd like to book a lesson!

This was my favourite album when I was a kid. I didn't go off it, it just met tough competition and sort of got forgotten. Not long after, Make Yourself saw me walking down the street with L.A. Woman. It was a bit awkward, but we keep in touch.
