It's not just guitarists who play around with tunings. Back in the seventeenth century, an Austrian composer called Biber was doing the same with violin music. I have a whole book of his stuff that requires different tunings in order to make chords possible that you wouldn't be able to do otherwise. Surprisingly hard to get your head around since virtually no music since for the violin has mucked around with the tunings. Anyway. Enough of violins. Here's a viola (played by me). No video, as I don't have a video camera.

Lovely! I do like a bit of the bigger violins. The sound effects made me think of the CDs for sale in my local new age shop. Was that the intention?

Thanks Del.

I did the original viola recording, an internet friend said could he add some stuff, I said, yes, fine - sent him the file, he added the electronic stuff, and sent it back. That was four or five years ago. He did tell me how he'd done the sound effects, but I've completely forgotten, and I don't have a current email address for him so have no way of contacting him (hence not crediting his full name, as I can't ask him for permission). So as to whether we were going for a new agey type of effect, I really couldn't say  scratch - but yes, I know what you mean.

Not sure how many of you will like this, but David Lynch's Crazy Clown Time is one of the most interesting albums I've heard in a long time. The more I hear it the more I love it.

I LOVE David Lynch's music! 'The Pink Room' is one of my favourite songs of all time. I've always said, if I could only ever use one guitar sound for the rest of my life, it's be Lynch's haha

I've dropped a couple of new videos on You Tube recently. Pretty embarrasing facial expressions, but there's a well known condition that links guitar players fingers with the muscles in the face, so whenever we bend a note part of the face contorts, grimaces, or worse.

Here's one of them:



Kind regards,

It's true! My brother does the same thing! We always called it his "rock star" face; didn't realize what it was though!  grin I guess it's a small price to pay for musical talent.

I think I would've liked the Lynch video better when I was younger. I still like the strange stuff, but not so much "trippy."

Nice Del. Don't worry about the guitar face. It's a common affliction, and yours is a lot less noticeable than most. My wife wants to put a photo book together of the best guitar faces we've seen at shows, but she can never remember her camera.

I'm revisiting Earth's back catalogue. They started as a drone project, but then turned into this beautiful 'dark country' type band:

I decided to plug in the distortion box and rock out for my latest You Tube extravaganza:

Nice one, Del! That reminded me a bit of Joe Satriani.
