Perhaps your mistake is thinking that people are "pretending" to get it! I'd be pretty pissed off if you accused me of pretending to get it when I was enjoying the sensation of being blown away on waves of noise.


Heh heh! That's why I stay away!

I don't go to see kareoke club acts either. But that's more a punching impulse than a shaking one.

Interesting what you say about the greek modes. I didn't know that.


I'm only getting into it myself. I was teaching someone to play Holst's 'Jupiter' and couldn't understand why a certain note sounded out of key when it was in key, I went back to my text books and read it up - I think it has to do with these modes, certain tunes use certain degrees of the scale.

It's like we use major and minor now. Even five year olds can tell the difference between a sad chord and a happy one. Fascinating!
