No. A talented musician is a talented musician.

2. Do you believe it is easier/harder for a musician from a poorer economic background to succeed?
It has to be harder. You have less exposure to gear, recording software etc. etc.

3. Can a poor musician who attains fame and fortune remain “true” to his roots?

Yes. While it is almost impossible not to care about money after making millions of dollars, artists can still stay true. It's very, very rare for an artist to stay true, but's it's not impossible.

4. Is class a relevant theme in modern popular music?

I think people who sing about how rich/poor they are, are awful lyricists. Nuff said.

5. Do you consider wealth a common lyrical topic in popular music?

Too common

Thank you for your time.

Default It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry

Hey. Im new here and me and my girlfriend are trying to learn this song together.

The song is It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry by Bob Dylan. The version is the Bootleg series 2 version, its a sort of shuffle blues.
Neither of us have any real knowledge of playing the keyboard and we want to learn the organ riff played with the song. We've experimented with what we can figure out but it doesnt quite sound right.

I'm sure it would be incredibly simple for anyone who plays and i was wondering if someone could help us with the organ part. If you cant find the song i can email it to you.

Thanks

Default Animals or Moods

Hi there:
I'm in the process of compiling several collections of pieces for teaching at the high school level that are thematic and welcome suggestions, preferably ones that are not too obscure (ie. either pieces or at the very least, composers, who are more 'well-known' by the masses) and that might pique a student's interest, for whatever reason. I'm looking at three themes currently, which I hope will clarify:

1) Animals - suggest pieces that evoke an animal (e.g. birds and dogs in Vivaldi's Four Seasons; Saint-Saens Carnival of the Animals; Flight of the Bumblebee, etc..)

2) Mood - suggest pieces that evoke a mood (e.g. Holst Mars; Barber Adagio for Strings, Fucik Entry of the Gladiators, etc.) - this is quite subjective, I know, and that's fine (actually, part of the point!)

3) Nationality - suggest pieces that quite tangibly evoke the sound/flavour of a nation (e.g. Slavonic Dances,..) - e.g. what would be a great example of 'French' music with accordion?; what's the classic piece that sounds Greek..? - how's that for vague.. :-)

BTW - I'd be happy to get suggestions for any of the above that are non-classical as well!!

Thanks for your help!

Default Listening Examples for school

Hi there:
I'm in the process of compiling several collections of pieces/songs for the purpose of teaching/exemplifying a variety of musical concepts, and am looking for more suggestions that would provide for a good variety of tunes that would be of interest to high school students. In general, I'd prefer music that isn't so obscure (if it's something they may have encountered, whether on their ipods, radios (!), movie theatres, tv screens, dance floors, etc... that would be great!). Two concepts I'm collecting at the moment are:

Harmony (as in major, minor, or 'neither')
- looking for examples of pieces in minor that don't necessarily 'sound' minor..
- looking for 'common' works with strikingly dissonant moments
Texture (monophonic vs homophonic vs polyphonic)
- looking for 'well-known' pieces that have monophony or polyphony

I'll start with this for now, and post other concepts separately.
Thanks for your help!
Martin

I've noticed a trend in recent years of bands straying away from the confines of a huge, elaborate studio in Los Angeles and instead opting for a more untraditional place to work on their music.

Some examples that I've already found are...

*Grizzly Bear cut some Veckatimest tracks in old, weathered church in Brooklyn (the rest were recorded in the singer's house in Cape Cod)

* Death Cab for Cutie recorded some material for Plans in a barn at Longview Farms, North Brookfield, MA

*Mike Kinsella (Owen) records the majority of his music in the basement of his mom's house

*Thom Yorke says "To me the environment in which one records is the only thing that matters..."

This is just a rough concept, it definitely needs to be tweaked and more defined. I am just fascinated with how musicians' creativity during the songwriting/recording process is influenced by where they are and choose to be. If you have any information or can point me to any articles/videos of bands talking about recording in an unconventional environment, I'd really appreciate the help!
U2 did some recording in Sun Studios in Memphis, for "Rattle and Hum" iirc.

It's a nice room.

Hi, I'm a piano player and know a bit about classical music theory, but actually am a big fan of blues, blues rock and rock and roll. One of the major instruments in those generes is the harmonica, and I've been wanting to learn how to play it for a really long time, but never found a good method I could use for no payment. I've seen some of Erik's Harmonicanotes's 'Harmonica in 30 Days', but he doean't play good which made me stop, some of Gussow's videos, which seemed too high level, and some of JP Allen's free videos, which made me mostly think i should buy the rest of his videos.
Before I go buying off JP's videos, I'd like to know if there are any better video lessons, either payed or free, that could trach me how to play really nice (I'd like to get to Steven Tyler's level), or if there is any method to learn harmonica by myself in an efficient way (and if that method could work for more instruments - better, because eventually I'd like to learn guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, drums, etc.).
Thank you for the reading and for the help!
