"She will never learn the most necessary, most difficult and principal thing in music, that is time, because from childhood she has designedly cultivated the habit of ignoring the beat." Letter to Leopold Mozart (24 October 1777)

The song The First Circle by the Pat Metheny Group, in particular this live version from their album called One From the Road has Been recognized by many people in the music industry as music simply too original to be pigeonholed. . As a gues on jazz albums, Pat with any group was able to sell at the level of pop musicians of their time. The difference between that Metheny group and the pop musicians was that The PMG’s better songs develop over 7-10 minutes – pieces where attention that many escape in to, many have not heard yet.
According to Dave Matthews’ introduction of this song from a version recorded with Tim Reynolds at Luther College, “#41” was the “Forty-first single that was recorded by the Dave Matthews Band.”
According to Dave Matthews’ introduction of this song from a version recorded with Tim Reynolds at Luther College, “#41” was the “Forty-first single that was recorded by the Dave Matthews Band.” He went on to mock himself, “about as creative as the Dave Matthews band,” but went on to record one of the best versions of the many DMB is smart enough to sell from many venues – so that his band and their families and the roadies and techs and suits, they get their share. Dave and his band got into music at about he final time that music was centralized enough for one voice to be heard.
I have never changed a music purchase based with tempo itself as a motivational elemenrpt💯
The best songs hit me in the gut, viscerally.
I’ll usually like a song or not based on
1) liking the initial bodily pull from the harmonic rhythm;
2) liking the melodic sounds
3) liking the harmonic choices
4) liking the sonority.
Speed is something that rules music, Burt I have never changed a song in my of purchases based on tempo. All music I measure is purchased. I thank YouTube and WordPress firewall allowing recording embeds, borrowed never stolen. I’m a 40 year musician – I get it. Also a lawyer, thus being disbarred for stealing and REO Speedwagon hit? No thanks! Live ya Kevin Cronin, so know I bought everything I listened to before checking out GREAT performances from all the fantastically generous artists on YouTube💯💯💯.
I *have* thousands of purchases based obj whether I like the way that tempo is being used. I own every Pat Metheny Group, Genesis and Dave Matthews Band song. In the end, Carter Beaford of the Dave Matthews Band has been there most underrated musician alive since 1992!
