Can You Believe What They’re Listening To These Days? An Early Culture Critic Speaks Out
Yesterday, when I was going through that post on TalkBass about Carol Kaye‘s opinion on chordal playing vs. scalar playing, I came across an interesting history piece which discusses Plato‘s take on scales or modes – some 2,500 years ago.
Its interesting that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Here’s a link to Michael Hammer‘s article from his website, Pianonoise!. Its a great companion piece to some of the material that I’ve posted from Melanie Spiller and John Byrne, on their respective blogs, which also discuss music history.
If you’re interested in music history or cultural, links to related articles can be found in the Music History / Culture section of my ugly History / Topic Index, which can also be accessed from the top of the page.
