  1. I acutally don't know any fashion forums, maybe you could point out one...? I've been searching around, though I couldn't find one :( And I don't want to know what he's wearing specifically, just what kinda of beads (or WHAT) it is. I'm sorry, I will never take up a question ever, that isn't relating to guitars. Hope that no one else will.
  2. That 2 + 2 = 4? I don't even know that you mean.
  3. What is this, therapy? I asked a question since I didn't know what it was. People do have questions. In my case; I wanted to find out what it was that was hanging 'round his neck. And no, I don't get crazy about those things and obsessed, but for future posts I will be sure to remember to tone down the sarcasm, and I even might try to change "I think that I'm going crazy..." to "Can someone provide me with an answer to a question that I have regarding this picture?"
  4. Thank you! Some things get to me, I just have to know the answers. Otherwise I go crazy. Can't really help it :/
  5. ...since I can't figure out what kinda "necklace" the guy on the left, sitting down, is wearing (the "necklace" is the blue thingie..). I don't even know what it's made of: beads? cotton? Knitted? Can someone please help me?
  6. Thanks for your in depth analysis jdmg! Maybe it's one of those songs that uses influences from the time, I know for a fact that many bands started to experiment with eastern sounding guitar before Sgt. Pepper approximately around '65, '66. One can assume that Butterfield Blues Bands "East-West" must've been a huge influence on young guitarists, but I do concur with you about the Beatles record. I read though that the writer of the song spend some time in USA in '66 or '67, can't remember and can't seem to find the interview either, maybe he was exposed to the eastern influences there. Many of the songs that I've heard don't use a particular scale, they just add, excuse me now, since I don't know ANY theory, so it might look wrong, a semi-tone to get that "eastern" sound. Two examples: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fqLiojNEsI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=js6H1fxEhHc So I don't think that he was ahead of his time, just played what sounded "in" for that time. Though I wish that he had a scale, would've been easier for me to have that as a starting point, haha.
  7. So both scales are rooted in the harmonic minor?
  8. How do you figure out what scale he is playing? I've been trying to figure out one, I believe that it isn't that hard (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkPL5fSTBCE, but it would be waaaay easier to have a scale to build from.
  9. Thanks for that, will try work it out once I get the guitar back! Yes, I remember reading something about that, pretty weird. Their first album is mind blowing, pre-prog, psychedelic, it holds various genres.
  10. Maybe so. I have to check that one out!
  11. Since I don't have my guitar here, I was wondering if anyone knows what scale the guitarplayer is playing. I don't even know if the scale/mode has any name. Just curious, 'cause I find it rather nice. Starts at 0:40. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAkDtwsrkQE Thanks for any help that I might get!
  12. Thanks for the tip! I don't think that anyone will ever capture his vision, he does the unexpected. Maybe that's why he's one of the best guitarist who'd ever walked the godforsaken earth.
  13. Thank you both jdgm and axuality for your analysis! I've been reading about the track on other forums, though nothing has been as accurate as those two. I remeber reading somewhere that the first solo, which actually is played by Elvin Bishop, was based on the G Harmonic scale and that Bloomfield, who plays the other two solos, had tuned his guitar to drop D. I will try to find them again. So one could actually get through the second solo by playing, fairly atleast, by playing D-minor pentatonic with some added semitones? Thanks again!
  14. Thanks! Kinda hard to grip it though. I just want to know what he's playing, his "vision". Maybe that's too hard...
  15. I'm still struggling and I haven't got an clear answer from anyone. Does anyone know what scale Bloomfield is playing on "East-West"? Does he even play a "scale" or does he add flats to the pentatonic? Some quotes about the song (I DON'T know any theory at all, so maybe someone could explain it to me) "This song was based, like Indian music, on a drone,” Naftalin has said. “In Western musical terms it ‘stayed on the one." "Pre-’East-West' I was listening to a lot of Coltrane, a lot of Ravi Shankar, and guys that played modal music. The idea wasn’t to see how far you could go harmonically, but to see how far you could go melodically or modally. And that’s what I was doing in ‘East-West’ and I think that’s why a lot of guitar players liked it.” What's modal? And what does he mean with "how far you could go harmonically, but to see how far y could go melodically or modally."? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaV-S5ivX3E
  16. How hard is it to find an lefty 330?
  17. "Two Trains Running" is one of his best work! Though I really have a soft spot for: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3vnXBsDT50
  18. I stand corrected; I think that Kalb is good, very good, almost on the Bloomfield level. His work on Projections is mind-blowing, life-changing and has actually given me a reason to get up in the morning. Why isn't his name mentioned in all these "greatest guitarist" lists? WHY? Even though I love the Monterey Pop version, I think that this version is absolutely great; the tone! I don't know if he played on that goldtop on the album, read somewhere that he played a Danelectro. Anyways; love his tone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLKouiOa0pQ
  19. I think that every garage band in the entire 60's had that song on it's repertoire. BUT, it's a good song, a really good song!
