Many leaders of rock groups cannot understand why the musicians in their collective are delayed for long. It would seem that this is the person with whom you will work all your life. But time passes, and your guitarist or vocalist leaves the group. Someone explains their departure as a lack of time or children. And someone doesn’t explain anything at all and just stops attending rehearsals. If this happens for the first time, then you can just find a replacement for the musician and not think about anything. But if such withdrawals are repeated, then it is worth thinking about the reasons.
From personal experience I can say that they can be both in the leader of the group, and in the musicians themselves. Here are a few options that I have come across repeatedly. Not a leader It happens that a musician who has gathered a group is a talented composer and poet. He has a lot of material and there is always something to work on. But by nature he is not a leader. Therefore, they generally do not perceive him as the leader of the group, argue with him and prevent him from moving forward. Very often such people are used to achieve their goals. For example, a bass player is required in a group, but you just can’t find it. Continue reading
Petya, Petya, how could you! Exchange jurisprudence for a pipe! – the angry uncle of a negligent nephew, who quit the service of a titular adviser in the Ministry of Justice for the sake of serving Eutherpe, the patroness of music, was chastising with such words. And the name of his nephew was Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. And today, when the music of Pyotr Ilyich is known to the whole world, when international competitions are held to them. Tchaikovsky, in which academic musicians from all countries take part, it can be argued that it was not in vain that Petya abandoned jurisprudence. In the work of Pyotr Ilyich there are many serious works that won him worldwide fame, but he also wrote music that was understandable and accessible to children. Tchaikovsky’s works for children are familiar to many from early childhood. Who has not heard the song “The grass is green”? – She was hummed and hummed by many, often without suspecting that the music belongs to Tchaikovsky. Continue reading
SPAIN!!! Homeland of great sailors, ancient chivalric novels, roguish literature. Land of Cervantes, Velazquez, Goya … A country of unquenchable temperament, openness and Honor. Where else can you meet such cheerfulness ?! For the Spaniard, evening is not a preparation for bedtime, but the beginning of revelry! Songs, dances, flamenco … Many believe that the music of Spain is the best in the world. Here and only here a guitar could be born! We will tell you about the great Spanish guitarist Andres Segovia Torres (1893-1987), a man of legend. He was lucky to be born in Spain, in the small Andalusian town of Linares, to absorb the rich history, culture, traditions of this country. For nearly a hundred years, he lived with Spain in his heart and with all of humanity in his soul, serving one lady – the Guitar.
He revived the Guitar and magnified it, gave it an academic sound. From childhood, Andres Segovia, immediately after making friends with the guitar, learned from the old Spanish guitarists the sad story of the extinction of the life of this beautiful instrument, the decline in the role of the six-string in the symphonic life of the planet. The guitar’s voice sounded weaker on the musical Olympus, yielding to the sounds of the piano, violin, cello … Continue reading
