Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
Spotted this lass on Boing Boing this morning and asked myself, “Will I ever be able to play like her?”
Answer? “Dream On.”
She had to start somewhere.
Smooth playing…( 1950s/60s some might have said….”Solid!!”..the more ‘S’s the better- I’m going with 5)
The only effective way to answer question #1 is that you post a video of you playing Dream On. I will be sorely disappointed if you don’t. 😉
Heh. Put on your disappointed hat!
Pretty much wear it all the time.
Do like I do. Cock it at a snappy angle. 😼
Just like writing, everyone brings their own strengths and originality to their instrument. She has wonderful voicing, accentuation and vibrato, and her own interpretation of the melodies are fantastic.
Yes indeed. Pretty impressive for a young player too. Shows you how the old tunes can have a new life in the right hands …
Talk about flow state. Not sure if it’s my tinnitus, but swear I could hear some fuzz she put on that. Reminds me of Steve Vai, though I’m not a fan of that really technically perfect, clean sound. I like more fuzz. She slays, though.
I have tinnitus too (a weird, high-pitched diminished chord in stereo), but I’m hearing the fuzz loud and clear. It’s funny, but watching her play, she looks a little deliberate. Yet the sound that comes out is smoooooooth.
Down with that smoothness. That song is their ” Stairway.”
I owe my tinnitus to one of the last Sonic Youth albums but kind of earned it, earbuds and early morning conditioning climbs.
That’ll do it. I think I got mine at The Who concert in 1973. That sucker was LOUD!
You come by it honestly. I had an ear doctor tell me it was from using firearms without ear protection, HS Thompson style. Woods + paranoia + other elements hard to pinpoint.
