placebo - bigmouth strikes again

Better than the original, because it is louder. There I said it. Put Moz back on vocals and it would be even better. That would be playing god though.

Concert pitch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Did you know that on February 16th 1859, the French government passed a law that set A above middle C at 435 Hz?

No, neither did I. But if you're wondering, today, A above middle C is widely accepted to be tuned to 440Hz Concert pitch refers to the pitch reference to which a group of musical instruments are tuned for a performance. Concert pitch may vary from ensemble to ensemble, and has varied widely over musical history. In the literature this is also called international standard pitch. The most common modern tu…

Quiz: How many of these metal album covers do you recognise? We've brought you album quizzes on different musical decades, now we move on to genres – can you name these metal classics?

[05/21/14]   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! 02/05/2014

Incubus - Make Yourself ~ full album

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.
