Here. This is what I'm talking about! Apologies for the language. LOL.
Wow. I kinda thought they'd be nicer.John Bonham and Keith Moon both phoned in from the otherside and told me you are full of crap!!!
Wow. I kinda thought they'd be nicer.
So you (and these ghosts, into whose mouths you cram your opinions) are saying that if musicians play to a click then there is no room for "swing, feel, phrasing, dynamics, accents and other" elements?
The click doesn't dictate or mandate the entire grid, and players can keep a stable tempo while having lots of fun with everything else.
I found my experience of learning to play to a click to be VERY valuable. And there was definitely a stage where I learned to lock with the click but still felt very free to work within the rest of the beats to swing and phrase. If that's difficult for those ghosts to understand, that surprises me.
Really? Was trying to be funny. Bonham drifted all over the place, and the music was more compelling
because of it. So Boo!
Ah. I guess I missed the joke. You and a couple famous ghosts gang up on me and call me "full of crap". Good one.
Then a little "So Boo!" as icing. I like your formula: Stab-smiley-stab-smiley.
We all get that you think you are right and we're all wrong. Clicks bad. You good. Got it.
Playing to a click and being quantized are completely different things. That's what they call a strawman. In the above example, if Bonham was playing to a slow click (quarters where snares are on 2 & 4), much of his feel and swing would have been preserved. The click dictates tempos and beats, not subdivisions, swing, dynamics, accents, feel, etc.
If all that was done was to put align the first beat of each bar of Bonham's groove to a tempo grid, the damage would be not very noticeable.
Not my words. And what does he know anyways? Chick Corea... ha!
Nice stab. Where's my smiley?I figured you'd find a way to quibble.
I totally understand that they [quantizing subdivisions, vs playing to a click] are
Pretty sure Bonham playing to a click is a dead topic anyways.... because he
I'll let you have your points, though, even if I completely disagree with what you are trying
to drive home to me about music, drumming, John Bonham, and the conclusions you draw
about "playing to a click."....
