Traditional vs. Contemporary Classical Music
"Today we are talking about the somewhat controversial topic of traditional versus contemporary. And this is a debate in pretty much all areas of life or art forms, whether you are thinking literary. So where you have a more traditional or even historical type fiction versus contemporary fiction or in music, if you like the traditional sounding songs, very classical, or a more contemporary pop genre, and obviously to apologize to everything else, like politics, if you have your more traditional people and your more contemporary progressive people anyway, I personally believe that it's important that we can appreciate things on both sides. Of the line. So when it comes to more traditional sounding violin music, you're going to think, especially a lot about Bach baro, classical era, music like Mozart, so here's a little box. Okay, so this very ornate decorative sounding music or you might have something even from the romantic time period, which was 19th century. Right? Now, if you are actually trying to do something more contemporary, you might do a little bit more with improvisation, although actually in the baroque era Bach did improvise a lot. But for example, if this was like twinkle little star. You know, Abu Dhabi in French Mozart did a ton of variations on that. But a contemporary version of that could be.

Iron Maiden Find Eastern Muse
"This is iron maiden the new album is called. Sent jitsu this is the song days of future past and here to talk about what is An absolutely epic album from iron maiden his npr music. Lar- scotch which. I have two full disclosure. I was listening to iron maiden maybe forty years ago and they've been together longer than that you know and if you told me we'd still be talking about new music from them this far along. I probably wouldn't have believed that like you said. Listen to that rift guitars on this. The songs their vision. Everything i think our i. It's just all fully intact seventeenth album in forty six years from one of the greatest heavy metal bands full time. That's not hyperbole. it's a fact. Album is ten tracks over eighty two minutes so it is long and at times help lead but this has been iron maidens mode lately these grand sweeping epochs that tell these larger than life stories are made may arenas but their music lightly has been more tailored to concert halls. Most of these songs are like eight ten minutes long. Each vase sprawl had many movements. I can. I can imagine like quite a stage. Production for whenever iron maiden contura gone. They do use a lotta runway to get these songs going but but it works. So i think it's still pulls you along. I never found myself feeling tired or like the sound was getting tired. And there's also an assist something has been doing a little bit more lately but there's also a little bit nostalgia. My favorite song written here by the basis. Steve harris is called the parchment. But it's a song that gnaws to the egyptian themes of iron mates nineteen eighty four album power slave. So that's like a nice. It's a nice little easter egg for iron maiden fans and also kind of ties into kind of like a broader idea about iron maiden that history mythology and religion have always played the matic roles in their

Violin or Fiddle, Whats the Difference?
"And I wanted to show a little bit of a difference between the fiddle playing and classical violin playing. A lot of people ask what's the difference? There's actually no difference in the instrument itself. It's the same instrument. It's more how you play it. So if you're playing a more traditional classical piece, you'll have this kind of more rounded sound with a lot of vibrato, which is where you kind of move your hand. See how I'm really kind of using a lot of movement here. Now when Marie takes the stage and she plays fiddle, it's gonna be a lot more of kind of this open string sound where I don't use as many fingers. You still have to use fingers, but you kind of have this more open sound. Also, there's a lot of this kind of long short short short long, short short pattern that really creates this more fiddle, folksy vibe. Okay. About that. Anyway, it's really fun. And for those of you who haven't tried it, and maybe have been more classically trained, yet give a little bit of a chance to do that long short term rhythm and maybe on two open strings. And that can go a long ways when you're playing whether with the band or playing solo. Hopefully you guys are learning a little bit about different genres here. And then if you are a fiddler originally and you're trying to learn classical, you're going to use less of those open strings instead of import more user fourth figure. And see how that gets a more covered sound in a certain sense. And just kind of a more rounded sound. So there's your little mini lesson today on the difference between classical playing and fiddle

Because it's got you no matter what your opinions are. He always delivers. I'm sorry i think so. I'm a big con yay san. I like his music for the most part. I even liked heartbreaking or whatever that the one but this one is seemed like a lot was going on. It's too long has been happening. But and the album took a long time. But i just love that when there's an issue on the table you like to skirt around the real thing like what about him. Admitting that he was unable to gab allegedly allegedly by the way i mean also look it could be his art. It could be. It could have rhymed so he wrote it in. I mean it doesn't mean it's actually what happened but if what has been happy. Doesn't this all the time. He uses his lyrics. He uses his real life and he puts it into his. And you're like wait.

That sustained us. He died in late august at the age of eighty
