Default Hello All

Hello
Just listening to John Scofield's Hand Jive album right now.

I'm new here. I joined because I've been looking for a place to ask about a song I've been wanting to know what it is for 30 years. But then I join and I can't post a link until I've posted 15 times grr. I prepared a 40 second clip of looping through the melody twice on my guitar.

Anyways, I've been listening to a ton of Jazz lately because I'm searching for what I like but I haven't found much. I found stuff by googling and searching youtube for "best jazz albums of all time."

I do like the stuff from the 30's - 40's.

But I mainly like slow soft piano and guitar Jazz. I found Joe Pass is pretty much what I was looking for.

I spent half of last year listening to Hits from 1906 up to 1954 found on 45prof and 78prof's youtube channel.

My musical journey started out with some "Irish music cassettes" I bought when I was 9.
But then I turned to liking Rap and then Rock in my teens. Then I found videogame music. Once I started learning guitar in my 20s, I started branching out to the roots of music and so I've been listening to Blues and Jazz. I definitely love classical as well.
I like the roots of country music but not new stuff.

So yeah I'm on a musical journey in search of gems. Always fun to find a new gem.

One strange thing about me, I don't like listening to the same song multiple times over. The first few times I find a really good song, I'm in awe and it's the honeymoon phase. But if I listen to it too much, it becomes to common, so I try to regulate it. Just put it away and maybe listen to it some other time if I'm craving it. The rest of the time I just spend listening to new stuff.


Cheers.

Hello and Welcome bananasushi
Was annoying about the 15 but just get to it and post a few things and your'll soon past that obstacle..I found I could not edit or post any links and then when I could I done it wrong but was helped a lot with posting direct instead of by links...People are in general terms.. seem to be ok on this forum not too much moderating to stifle you either, as for me I normally find trouble or it finds me....just the way of the world.
Music is one of my loves, not delved into your music world, but will, as hate to miss out...

Gosh, I haven't thought about that for 24 years.
I think at the time, I thought Baby Spice or Posh were the best looking but I didn't really have a crush on any of them.

Honestly some of the best jazz I've heard has been in a video game.

Unfortunately with music lovers, video game music is overlooked because it isn't mainstream, nor is it commercially produced. If you haven't played game, you will never know about it. I think most people think it's just beeps and boops but it has come a long way.

However, I will say some of the best game music was the old stuff because some of it had really good melodies. They couldn't produce high quality orchestrated music with many layers of instruments so they focused on catchy melodies. My personal golden era of game music is super nintendo to playstation era. It's a bit unfortunate that a lot of the super nintendo stuff sounds a bit too synthetic but it's still wayyy better quality than nintendo and it's almost there. But by the time playstation came around, the music was pretty much sounding real. Unfortunately I found after that era, music, although it became better quality, and had more orchestration, just ended up sounding all the same and mediocre. There weren't many driving melodies that I could hum to.
