Blues for this grey spring weather

I’m a bit torn between feeling happy about the warmth and spring, and feeling down about the blahs and rain of spring.  Everything is grey and wet.  36 more words

House of the Rising Sun - The Animals

When I was in high school I took a college-level music theory class. It was hard as fuck. Especially because, as I’ve said before, I love music, but I don’t have a natural talent for it. 509 more words

ASESINATOS, PRISIONES Y CANCIONES. LA HISTORIA DE LEADBELLY.

Publicado en Evaristo Cultural en abril de 2015

Si los epitafios rindieran auténtico honor a la vida y obra de quienes homenajean, si se refirieran a los hechos que marcaron la vida de éstos de manera fiel e innegable y al pie de la letra, la lápida que descansa sobre la tumba de Huddie William Ledbetter, enclavada en el suelo firme del cementerio de la iglesia de Shiloh, en las afueras de Shreveport, Louisiana, debería rezar algo así como “Aquí yace Leadbelly, Cantante, Guitarrista, Compositor y Asesino, 1885-1949” Teniendo en cuenta que quizás no hubiera resultado la descripción más indicada para acompañar a una tumba que, finalmente, descansa junto a un templo bautista, la inscripción “Una leyenda de Louisiana, Rey de las Doce Cuerdas” seguramente resultó más oportuna al momento de describir al más emblemático cantante y músico negro de folk americano de la historia. 3,412 more words

The three most important songs in my life

How to define just three and how to define important? I thought about it for a while and have narrowed the vast number of songs that I have connected with over the years down to just three that have left a lasting impression and who came to mind quickest. 626 more words

Day 146: Where Did You Sleep Last Night?

Listening to Leadbelly is a rabbit hole. One song leads to another. I hear this and I am reminded of the Nirvana version and how fierce they played it, how wicked Curt Cobain sounded when he sang it.
