What's In? [Deaky-topics in this week]
- Live at Hammersmith 1975
This live was broadcasted on Japanese television(satellite TV)
and we fans who could watch it enjoyed the show very much.
(You can see the part of this show in "Rare Lives".)
Our John seemed not to be seen on screen (as always),
but his bass-sound was more powerful than any other show,
as the same as his triangle. Hey John, you'd better take care of that
instrument more gently!
- About 'harmonics'
Gonzalo from Spain teached me about 'Harmonics' of bass-play.
As far as I know, "Harmonics" techinique consists in
putting the fingers of the left hand (the one
which "decides" the notes) on the frets but without
pressing the string to the neck of the Bass, just with
the fingers resting on the strings. This causes the
sonorous spectre of the note to "spread".It's a very
impressive technique, used by a lot of bassits, but
only used correctly by a few (John among them).It only
works on frets #1,#3,#4,#5,#7,#9,#12,#16,#19 and #20
I hope this is useful to you!
Oh yes, it's very useful information. Thanks a lot!
- Yes, I know "you know"
My friend Philipp told me the previous question: do you know "you know"?
I'm glad to understand that. Thanks Philipp for your helping!
"You know" is a very common phrase in the English every-day conversation.
It is used after explanations and answers and means something like "do you
understand?","you see?","that's the way it is",I hope you can follow my words".
So it is stressing the things,somebody said in a sentence,but it is also
softening the words somehow. It is a quite polite phrase.
- Need glasses...?
One of my guests wanted to know whether he come to need reading glasses,
because many people do it when they grow older...sorry for
caring such a trivia John, but the fact is...?
Thank you for reading! See you next week!
