Holy Mackerel! GREAT Song!


My new favorite video! I love the chord progression that starts at exactly 32 seconds into the composition. It’s a free-wheeling thing, with – -as far as I can tell  — a dude soloing over the key structure. And that’s about it.

However, sometimes less is more. If you turn it up — way up! — it’s just wonderful! You feel your head swaying as if it were in a breeze, and the summer temps were around 70 degrees or so.

I’m absolutely amazed at this guy’s ability to set a mood! Or to jab at your brain and evoke a memory of days gone by! It’s a rare gift, and this guy has it … in spades!

Listen… then listen again, and see if you don’t agree with me.

Alan Miner’s one of my favorite guitarists — of all time! And he’s probably the least famous.

Deeply painful: the composition stops in the middle, at the 7:30 mark, just when it’s started down quite another, exciting musical trail.

Worse than something-else-interruptus, believe me!

However, I have to confess, I’ve turned “Cityscape – by Alan Miner” up —loud — and used that alone as the backdrop for a really successful party. You should try it.
