Hey.  So I can't do full on, I'm Grass and You're a Power Mower style production breakdowns right now, being temporarily divorced from a lot of my musical equipment.

So to bide my and your time, I'm going to do little bite-size videos that highlight my fave little musical moments from the Feel Flows material.  I'm hoping to do one every day or so, starting with Slip on Through.  Let me know what you think, and please ask questions, or request that I talk about some musical moment that you love.

When I finally do have everything in place to go full-bore on the SDSN material, you're going to want to batten down the hatches and bolt your furniture to the floor.  But for now, Five Minute Feel Flows Feels to Reels, episode 1, Slip on Through.

Very nice! I just had a suggestion related to the Slip On Through installment: With your classical background I think it would be educational and interesting to connect some of the classical composition techniques to the way the band and in this case Dennis and Brian would use them in their own work.

With Slip On Through, the use of a bass "pedal" or pedal bass figure, or if it fits better a "basso ostinado" or ground bass from centuries prior is what Dennis uses on the track. It's a relatively easy way for anyone with even limited piano skills to create some very interesting chord voicings where the triads move on top but the bass note or even bass figure stays the same.

I'm just suggesting this because when I was new to learning the theory concepts and listening mostly to rock music from the 60's, I'd always enjoy seeing a term like "ostinado" used to describe a track I knew, and I'd go and research what that terminology was and how it worked musically with songs I knew and could relate to more than some 400 year old examples.  Grin

I thought it would be neat if you could relate some of those terms and the traditional theory terminology to the BB's examples and draw that connecting line, because it didn't happen in a vacuum and it's always fascinating to hear how composers find new ways to use techniques that are centuries old and keep them fresh and unique.

Seconded! I know next to nothing about music theory but your examples are very easy to follow. Given how busy the song is, you could probably do just as much analysis of each key change...

A great idea and a great start with what you've done to date, Joshilyn. I left a couple of suggestions at You Tube, you can check them out there at your leisure and see if they make any sense...!

Very much looking forward to more of this--like the box set itself, it will be an embarrassment of riches!
