This is by far one of my most favourite and smoothest intro and song for me. That saxophone man

Notice an astonished Ozzy literally scratching his head during the last solo!!
This man had Tony Iommi play with him before this, but Randy always blew him away with his blistering solos...Gone too soon man...too soon..

This post inspired me to go through the entire life for rent album last night, pulled out my guitar and played to many of the songs. Had a nice time.

LFR was a phenomenal album, there may be just two songs that i don't like that much. Dido is an amazing songwriter in addition to singer, and while i like the faithless influences, i'm sure her songs would be top-notch even without the superb production quality. Her first album wasn't bad either, but LFR just upped the game to a whole different level IMO.

Just realized she did a new album last year called still on my mind, downloaded yesterday but haven't gotten around to listening to it yet. I was listening to some scale theory yesterday, and the basic piano notes really REALLY messed with my ears. The frequency was really aggravating.

This is way off topic, but i'm trying to figure out what it's called when you add a natural 7th to the blues scale, which itself is just a flat 5th note added to the minor pentatonic. I was just fooling around yesterday and found this whole tonality by adding the 7th to the blues scale. If anyone knows please let me know. I play mostly by ear/feel, theory is a major PITA for me.
Not exactly a hip-hop fan, but Dido hypnotizes me...
When I die, i hope it will be to a dido song in slo-mo...

Btw, there's a 'hidden' track at the end of the album called 'closer'. This is very similar in feel to mary's in india and also an amazingly written song. So simple yet so heartfelt. One of my favs on the album.

The seven-note conception of the blues scale is as a diatonic scale with lowered third, fifth, and seventh degrees,which is practically same to the dorian flat 5 scale ( Sorry, my music theory knowledge is very basic, just trying to apply common sense)
My wife told me, it is called heptatonic conception of blues scale ( I did not even know there is anything beyond six notes in blues scale)
According to her, nine note blues scale also exists.
Yes, closer is a beautiful song. I also love the album. Still On My Mind is a decent album, but LFR is probably her best.

White Flag was/is my favourite because it hit home on a personal level for me.

That is another beautiful song, so simple, yet so powerful lyrics.
I do not play this song on speakers at home. Everyone starts crying...The hopelessness that comes with H addiction is so perfectly presented by Layne in this particular performance, it`s truly a heartbreaking song. I will never understand why Layne could not beat his addiction. His understanding of the issue was crystal clear ( as documented in his lyrics), he overcame the biggest hurdle (denial) yet chose to rot away slowly...

The heptatonic variant of the blues scale is 1-2-b3-4-b5-6-b7 if i understood it correctly.

The one i'm playing and trying to identify/define is 1-b3-4-b5-5-b7-7. It's also 7 notes but the tonality is completely different. It's just one extra note added to a blues scale, the natural 7th.

There are millions who love REM bro. The number may be little lower in India.
No offense to anyone or their taste in music, I find modern mainstream music disgusting and nauseating.
REM me love them too :)














Decades of music in one post :)
