    I think it shows how long I have lived outside of SA as I don’t recognise a quarter of those names on the list

His ability to keep his audience entertained and the thought provoking lyrics allow me to get past his voice! 😉 😀

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 50) : @Dancing Bear (Comment 49) : seems I missed a goodie while I was trying to get the CC FL sorted 🙂

    Just to be clear… robdylan is a nickname that a good friend from varsity came up with because of my musical leanings, but not necessarily as an indication of my love for Mr Zimmerman himself.

    It is true that I don’t rate Dylan overly much as a performer and won’t really listen to his original material by choice. I am, however, a HUGE fan of his songs as covered by other, better singers and regularly include a Dylan number of two in my performances.

    The day is catching up with me…. been at the Currie Cup media launch… a “cook off” between players and coaches etc of the provinces and media, SARU and Absa bigwigs… Fun. But the Sharks lost (someone decided to give us Roasted Vegetable Kebabs as our chosen dish to braai???) The winners? The Bulls, with a whole roasted hoender. And they cheated by using ingredients which weren’t on the recipe. 😛

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 53) : I have a bit of a thing for singers with limited/strange voices… Bob, Tom Waits, David Yow, Mike Skinner, Layne Staley, Jimi Hendrix, etc. It’s almost like the limitations forces them to do interesting stuff to compensate, and not just lyrically. In fact, most of the time I don’t really pay much attention to lyrical content

It was actually a great laugh but the six of us on the Sharks team (led by JLP!) felt we’d been dealt the “Bryce Lawrence” card of the cook-off…

    That’s one thing I will give the Americans credit for, they are very good at the whole Barbeque thing, and seem to enjoy it as much as South Africans do.

Of course will never have that throaty sound of a Telecaster, and is certainly no Paul Reed Smith guitar sound. 😉

Fine… We got points for presentation, but the Bulls stole table arrangements to make their chicken look better, and even had the gall to take the replica of the Currie Cup and put it on their table! I strode over there and waved a sosatie stick at those cheeky blue apies and we removed said trophy to its rightful table!

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 69) : OK, so here is a question for all you guitar experts. Jimi Hendrix played a right handed Stratocaster upside down (left handed). The front pickup on a Strat is angled with the pickup under the high e string being further forward than the pickup under the low e string. I assume that Fender did it this way for a reason since both other pickups are straight up and down. So the question is does the stratocaster sound different being played upside down when the switch is set to the front pickup?

  • @bergshark (Comment 87) : He is like a story teller. Story tellers have this ability to flow from song to song easily. Arlo Guthrie is superb at this. I once saw him in concert, and he started by saying: “I am going to start a lot of songs tonight, and probably will not finish most of them, as my mind wanders to a different song. But don’t worry, chances are I will get back to that song and finish it later in the concert.” 😆

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 66) : Hendrix – virtuoso guitarist, barely competent singer. I like that combo. I like it when musicians have a handicap; pure vituosity (a la Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Satriani, etc.) bores the living daylights out of me. I always think what they do amounts to musical masturbation; it’s all for their own gratification.

    Of course I’m being a huge hypocrite here, because I like jazz like Miles Davis, Coltrane, Albert Ayler, etc. And that is complete instrumental wankery, albeit done supremely skilfully 😆

  • Ha, all the pictures I have seen with the Three Tenors has Domingo on the right, Carreras in the middle, and Pavorotti on the left, so I guess that makes Domingo the tighthead, Carreras at Hooker and Pavorotti as our massive loosehead!

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 101) : I like improv, although mostly in jazz, hip-hop, and electronic music, not so much on electric guitar, and not at all if it is guitar solo based. Play some drones, finger pick, assault it with a screw driver – cool. Play a classic guitar hero solo – gag. That’s pretty much the lay of the land in the Culling Song universe

  • @bergshark (Comment 116) : Yep, the Blue and the Grey. Although they probably spelled it Gray. 😆 Yep, a Union song. Did you know that Sarie Marais was taken from a rebel song during the civil war called Ella Rhee? A song about an escaped slave that returned to the plantation because his beloved had died in slavery there and was buried on the plantation.

    Then carry me back to Tennessee
    there let me live and die
    among the fields of yellow corn
    where ella rhee lie

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 76) : actually, it’s the rear, or bridge pickup, that is slanted…. nobody seems completely sure why Leo did that, but the general consensus is that it balances out the tones across the scale… as you know, notes played near the bridge tend to be quite sharp, so I think Leo wanted to ensure that the treble was extra twangy and the bass still clear…

    As to how much effect it had, well… as you rightly point out, Jimmy had his angle going to opposite way and it still sounded better than virtually any other strat ever played by anyone ever, so maybe Leo should’ve done it the other way round to being with!

  • Hi

    There was a thread on here earlier in the week about a “new signing coming soon”, apparently to be announced on Friday.

    There was a huge banner on the Sharksrugby opening page (without the default . aspx) saying as much – any idea why the same banner is now all shattered? Check it out.

    Timed almost to when it was announced Nonu had signed for the Blues…
