Smashing Pumpkins

Post by foal30 » Mon Jun 03, 2013 4:06 pm

sort of joining a covers band
in the list is "Bullet with Butterfly Wings"
which I might have heard 50 times on the Rock

there is more to it than I thought, interesting arrangement, lots of sections/movement. It uses anticipation to bring in chord changes which we looked at in an earlier piece.

the track after it (To Forgive) on the CD "Mellon Collie" is a really good tune, funnily enough never heard it on the radio
it's slow , almost ponderous but I like both the lyrics and vocal.
normally Corgan sounds like a whining pasty nerd but I like what he does here

have a go
I play both on a 5 string , I assume the original recordings were tuned down a semi-tone.
even boring music is worth looking at, there is things to learn everywhere. I like both tracks now, but only after listening properly (and in To Forgive case) listening at all.

You will never learn if your hand is held constantly, I think you should use google and learn how to do it your self. :lol:
