We just stumbled across an octobass.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octobass

It's a real thing; 11' 5'' tall, and played with some levers on the neck, rather than fingering on the strings.
There are only 3 strings, and a "regular" but large bow.
The octobass player uses a stand (a small platform), so they can reach the levers.

The strings vibrate... slowly... very s-l-o-w-l-y... So slowly, that you can watch them vibrate as though they are in slow motion.
And the sound is so low, that it can be difficult to be sure if you are hearing it sometimes. It can sound more like a very faint rumble(?); other times one can hear pitch. I assume this also depends upon one's hearing acuity, of course, plus whatever equipment one is using if not seeing it in person.
There are apparently only a few originals in existence, and only a few replicas.

It was extraordinary to see it.

We watch YouTube classical music a lot, and thus get "suggestions" that pop up sometimes, and this was the most recent new thing.
Fascinating. :happy

That’s interesting. I hadn’t heard of this instrument before. Here’s a description and demonstration from the Musical Instrument Museum. https://youtu.be/12X-i9YHzmE?si=CfR42b0Q33A9T3Mx

The latter was great! Thanks for providing it.

I was a big Small Faces fan prior to them becoming the Faces with Rod Stewart.

I, however, had any memory of every prior hearing the song. From watching and listening it definitely seemed like a live performance.

I knew it was Steve Marriott playing guitar and I was asking myself, where was the other guitarist, Ronnie Lane, who went on to play with the Rolling Stones.

Then when the guy came on he told us that it was Ronnie Lane on bass and I'd confused him with Ron Wood. Was It Wood replaced Marriott in the Faces with Rod Stewart when Steve Marriot left to team up with Peter Frampton in Humble Pie? All so long ago!!

He was. On guitar.

I think he suffered from a disease that many other gifted guitarists do. They think that because they are such excellent guitarists that that makes them qualified to sing.

I've never been of his or Eric Clapton's singing. Both of them would have been far better off by having vocalists who were as equally talented on vocals as they were on guitar.

The only exception is:

His voice was perfect for that song.

I can easily listen to that song at least ten times in a row!

Ah, another Small Faces fan!

Song of a Baker: I suppose that could’ve been live but it sounds so close to the official recording.

Here they are performing side 2 of Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake, and this is definitely live — and it includes the storyteller! I never saw this before. I wore that record out.

And of course their biggest hit, Itchycoo Park. This looks synced but it’s a great song.

I never saw the Small Faces but I did see The Faces with Rod Stewart in 1970. We got home at 3am and I had to work at 7. My ears rang for 24 hours.

I do know the word, chiaroscuro, an art term for the treatment of light and shade in drawing and painting. Not overly common yet I saw it for the 2nd time this week in a story in today's wsj https://www.wsj.com/arts-culture/books/ ... os1&page=1

The wsj story is about the composer of Concierto De Aranjuez, Joaquín Rodrigo, and also references Miles Davis. The music is a work for guitar and orchestra. I listened to the entire work on Spotify, but here's the 2nd movement from YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekznnxaGzNU I like the spotify version better.

The wsj review of the book mentions "Several mid-20th-century composers, though prolific, are remembered mostly for a single piece of music. Think of Carl Orff and his “Carmina Burana” or Ferde Grofé’s “Grand Canyon Suite.” And, certainly, think of the Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo (1901-99) and his enduringly popular work for guitar and orchestra, “Concierto de Aranjuez.”

I'll listen to Orff and to Grofe later.

I love this composition ("Concierto De Aranjuez"). I haven't heard it in a long time. So beautiful. I'll put that article in my WSJ queue.

"Concierto De Aranjuez"...

= new earworm, almost immediately!
Both snippets and long sections.

And now it's looping into other classical guitar solos and back again...

Thank you! :happy

I saw Faces with Rod Stewart twice in 1971, both times in Boston. Once indoors, the other outdoors.

I always somehow linked Small Faces and Humble Pie.

Here is the first Humble Pie song that caught my attention. It sounded so Beatle-esque.

When the record came out I played it the song for several people and they agreed with me.

That's a young, young, young Steve Marriott?

Have this one now. I'd heard of the record but never owned it. So this is my first time hearing anything from it.

Is that Steve Marriott on keyboards? Never knew he played keyboards in addition to guitar.

Steve plays keyboards on just the first song “Happiness Stan”, and electric and acoustic guitars on the other songs. That’s him in the white shirt and black vest. Someone commented that they’re miming the music but actually singing it live, and I believe it.

I had a couple Guess Who tapes that I listened to a lot 40+ years ago. Hadn't really listened to them since. Didn't even remember what songs they did, or why I liked them. Last night for some reason they popped into my mind, so I watched some of their (recorded) live performances on my TV on Youtube. Really enjoyed myself. They have a nice sound - great vocals, harmonies etc.

Their lead singer was Burt Cummings. In a band that I managed Cummings was a favorite of one of our vocalists.

The two guitarists in the Guess Who later went on to be Bachman Turner Overdrive.

I'd not say that about Hendrix. Have listened to Les Claypool (forgetting his band) but not enough to make any judgement on him.

Just so happens that I am listening to Stevie Ray Vaughan right now. But it's a perfect song because it is just him playing with no vocals - "Rude Mood / Pipeline" - Live.

He is certainly more deserving of being there then all the people in it who never played one note of rock and roll!

Enjoyed watching (and listened to) some old Herbie Hancock on Youtube last night including Rockit. He oozes creativity.

I've been enjoying the latest album Phantoma from Unleash the Archers, just released yesterday. I really like this band. Their last three albums have been really solid.

This is the longest track and the clear ballad on the album:

Give It Up Or Give It All

Or here's the playlist for the full album:

Phantoma Playlist

Give it a try. If you like rock or metal, or even if you don't, you might enjoy it.

DMX - Flesh of my flesh, Blood of my blood. A classic rap album, not quite as good as DMX first album, but still excellent.

The live Taylor Swift Drops of Jupiter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJwE8Lg2fZk

One of her few songs that I can appreciate her voice and range. Otherwise I don't get most of the attraction to her music.

I like the Train version as well, but stumbled on Swift's version in a Spotify play list. I did not realize it was a song before Train. Even Judy Collins did it in 2005.
