GemmyF The record version is a perfect song, but I wanted you to see them do it live +1

GemmyF it kind of sounds like it is played in Klesmer(bad spelling I'm sure) Music. Is it? +1

Wade Hey GemmyF, thanks for the listen. Sopranino is a specialty of mine. A much maligned little beastie. +0

GemmyF I don't know why-it is so cool--Do you know those guys--The Decemberists--I could hear that instrument with their music. +1

Wade I've used the sopranino for Klezmer, but the traditional instrument is clarinet. The (natural) range of a clarinet is more extensive than the sax. The sopranino can reach all of the top notes of a clarinet, and that's where the clarinet usually plays in Klezmer. Thus the similarity (and I obviously don't play sax in very traditional way).

Don't know the Decemberists...will check out. Thanks.

GemmyF A live recording AWESOME +1

Wade Checked them out. Not exactly what I expected. Folk with a strong Irish influence. Good musicians and tunes. Yea, I could hear sopranino parts that would work in there. Penny whistle or flute would work equally well. +1
spellbound... :)+1

Wade Well we know Zamzam can come up with something "different" much of the time and fun grooves. I'm just tagging along for the ride. Cheers! +0

ivax I still remember when I played on this track of ZamZam, the scale which came to my ear was a progression of A minor aeolian, B locrian and so on...even now playing on your notes, also they match these scales without alterations ... alike I get confused, but my ear that tells me :) +1
June 21 2016 01:11:18
Wade Got to admit that although I know theory I never do any sort of analysis of what's happening. Just use my ear to try and fit/match. Analysis or reading chord notation can box you into just running lines in that structure. It's relatively easy for me to hear a melodic line which may also run outside of the "theoretical" structure. I've learned to trust my ears more than theory even though I may wind up playing correctly (in theory). Using notation and theory can work if you can't hear those lines. For me it's a limitation, or worse, and impediment. +2

ivax well, actually I play by ear, but I always like to meet on that scale I am, for the construction of the licks, another way I think that I would be a disaster, at least thus learned to make the reading of the songs :) +1
