The Four Chord song:
But this clip is like a day's worth of Radio 2 condensed into 5 minutes, which is probably the best thing to do with it. Surely we can aspire to playing some (dare i say it?) better music.Nothing funny there 'Mr Thomas'...it just breaks the hearts/spirits of a lot of the members here who are breaking fingers/lungs/minds practising all sorts of 'wierd' scales/chords/progressions...and hey..!! why make life difficult, think of all the 'three chord trick' stuff..one less chord to worry about..
Even worse, I've had to admit that the music my mum liked (eg Nat King Cole) was way better than the music I liked as a kid (eg the Beatles). I've since come to the conclusion (which I mostly have to keep quiet about) that the advent of rock and roll spelt the end of popular music of any interest whatever.So when my mum objected to me playing The Damned's Machine Gun Etiquette at 3 am when I was 16 I should have told her that it's no different to The New Seekers (or whatever awful garbage she was listening to at the time)...
