Description
Same template and band I have been using. Girl wants to learn french this week. It all started when she saw one of those catalogues. You know the one with the continental fashions? What is that about anyway? I never saw anyone dress like that and I lived there for years...

Hello Harald
Of course the lesson gets in your wheelhouse! You speak french everyday and Monsieur and Mademoiselle are old friends. I am not going to try and explain this one to a soul. It is what it is...
Unique sense of humor? The Wokeadelic ethos is ignorant of any language or culture except that dronned in the US media.

Hello Dick
Naw, it's Daug, really. I am glad you were entertained. Morricone? For the little spikes on the melody during the speaking part, it recalls a certain linguini western... 70s cop show for the d-6 colors during that critical first minute and fifteen seconds, and, last, "The Zappa", that's easy, it's a Daug joint featuring distorted stunt guitar.

Mo welcome back!
Old friend "Monsieur and Mademoiselle" are a type of game played in French culture. Here the woman asks how old the man believes her to be. He suggests her various parts appear to be different ages. The face 25. The legs 22. The waist 30, etc. Mademoiselle says she is flattered because the gent believes her to be much younger than her actual age. The gentleman then remarks, something like, "Please, I am yet adding up the numbers." Funny to our generation whether one is a man or women? To the Woke, outrage! I am making sport of our mentally challenged friends once again. So now you don't have to learn French. Although I thought you international playboys all spoke French :) Good luck with your computer! I am waiting for more of your tunes!

Trés cool!
While I enjoy all your instrumentation Daug, I am always fascinated by your drum tracks. This is a most enjoyable 2:35 ride.
Cheers from Oz,

Drum low down
Here you go again, asking cool questions Why do Daug drum tracks sound like that? The information the listener needs to understand the piece is always in the drum track.
Real drummers delineate the form they are playing with technique. Recently past Ginger Baker was a master of telling the listener all the information with grand style. Clapton lost the "one" on Cream live tracks many times. Ginger could save his ass live with information on where he was inside of what was happening. This very thing happens on the famous track "Crossroads" live by Cream, if one has ears. Baker was a drummer!
So the drummer sets the tempo, and notes when the intro is over. He tells us when "one" comes up each time. He denotes the groove by where the three is placed. He uses the toms, or something on the snare to connect the various sections. Drummers give information with cymbals and hats, often punctuate musical jokes or cover obvious failures of his mates with a quick save on his kit. Unless they suck. I always seemed to work with the suck drummers. In the Allman Brothers Band, the most graceful case I know, there are two most excellent drummers often playing in different times, blowing your mind.
Digital music saves us from the tyranny of the sucky drummers. My machine always plays exactly what I want, doesn't smoke or drink and leaves the girls alone... I feel better!

Been here since the place opened. I hope you enjoy yourself here at MJ. In fall 2009, I erased the 60+ tunes I had posted since day one. MJ had changed, becoming hateful and repressive, and I needed to respond appropriately. What happe... [see more]
