Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

very difficult and obscure Prokofiev there. Have you heard any Tiffany Poon? She can play some equally difficult Liszt and make it sound effortless.


While I'm primarily a jazz player, I'm big on Chopin and can play some of the easier pieces. The cool thing about jazz is that if you know music/chords, you can just "play" or jam over a simple chart. You should practice b/c it makes you better and adds to your toolbox, but the classical you absolutely have to practice. My mom dropped off this simple Mazurka for me last week that I've been toying around with. It's in concert C so it's relatively easy:

That's so funny, there's a Chopin lp by Michelangeli that I got from my mom which I treasure. Side A is all mazurkas, B side has a performance of the G minor ballad which is one of the most gorgeous, epic, tragic things I have ever heard.

Some tasty Liszt from Tiffany Poon.

Been on a Low kick lately.


I debated whether to post the official video or not, since I think the visuals are a bit distracting and it's best experienced with eyes closed.

I've had "as long as your love me" by the Backstreet Boys stuck in my head since Sunday afternoon. Honestly, I don't mind.

I've had "Fixing a Hole" stuck in my head all morning. Also, the San Diego Symphony is performing the whole Sgt. Peppers album at the bayside summer nights concert series - looking forward to it. Sgt. Peppers is my favorite Beatles album.

This is one of those country songs which has been recorded by many many artists. It was written in 1952, and originally recorded as a bluegrass number by Flatt and Scruggs. I've had the Glen Glenn version going through my head for a few days now. Glen Glenn is not one of the best known rockabilly/country performers, but some of his best recordings stand out from the genre. He's also one of the few from that era (his first single was in 1958) who is still alive.

Very cool - thanks for sharing. This has a Hank Williams era-sound and vibe to it, but it's a little but more "crust" and punk. The photo halfway through has total Rockabilly vibes with the three-piece string ensemble and the slicked haircuts. I can't admit to knowing a whole lot about Rockabilly other than some of the larger modern acts (Tiger Army, Necromantix) and this seemed a little bit before that time to me.

I was recently introduced to Tony Rice, one of the bluegrass greats and arguably the best/most significant bluegrass "picker" still alive:

How do you like it? Tool has always been my favorite hard rock band. I love Maynard's vocals and the drummer's complicated rhythms - no surprise that he has a jazz background.

Admittedly I've been a little disenchanted by 10,000 days - it's just starting to get a little bit pretentious. Lateralus was the apex for me. "The Patient" might be my favorite song - it's truly a progressive track...

...like Ravel's Bolero! (The first progressive song???)

Technically and musically speaking, it's as good as anything they've put out, maybe among the best. It's an extremely polished work. At times it feels like they're retreading old ground rather than pushing the envelope, and I think in some ways Maynard's songwriting is not as interesting as it used to be. I need to give it a more attentive listen with headphones though.

And I felt the same way about 10,000 Days at first but it started to grow on me after a while. The Pot is actually one of my current favorite songs of theirs, and I'm kinda into Rosetta Stoned too.

I liked that video. Blue grass is at one end of my taste in music, but not my main thing. This chap plays in a nice relaxed style and "just sings the bloody song" which a lot of performers could learn from.

I have some Necromantix somewhere in my CD collection, along with the Guana Batz and the Meteors from a psychobilly phase I went through. I've seen the Meteors and the Reverend Horton Heat live. However, as I've got older, I've got more into the "traditional" rockabilly from the Sun era: Carl Perkins, Charlie Feathers, Sony Fisher, Sonny Burgess etc.

The original rockabilly was simple and cheerful, and good dance music. It grew out of the music played by rural people in the south. Many of the early performers really were from sharecropping families. The later stuff from the "revival" is more urban with its roots in punk, and a conscious pastiche of aspects of the original: good but not as spontaneous. Or maybe I'm talking nonsense.

Be that as it may, you may wish to look up Wayne Hancock, known by some as the modern Hank Williams. He is very good indeed, and borrows from hillbilly, rockabilly, blues and jazz. Here's one of his more Hank-like tracks.
