Hello again Michael Uplawski. I'm glad you enjoyed it. It does my heart and soul good to know that there are still young'uns that gravitate to melodic Rock. The drummer has a really great set of videos about here influences. He Father was in a Beatles tribute band that toured the EU and obviously has spent cvonsiderable time schooling her but that has certainly been reflected in her own soul. One particularly great one, at least for me, is "Why Ringo is a Great Drummer". I once met Ringo (basically just to say hello, nice to meetcha) while I was working backstage at one of his All-Star shows and got to watch him play from about 30-40 feet away. I had always liked his drumming and thought it was an integral part of Beatles feel, but seeing it flow out of him clinched it. He's very very good.

I also imagined what they would have sounded like with more renowned drummers of the era like Ginger Baker, Mitch Mitchell, John Bonham, and Keith Moon and always came up ... less than stellar, actually just wrong. Her renditions and explanations are superb and shows the complexity hidden beneath simplicity and I've always gravitated to that ever since I heard the first real Blues music. That girl is already a pro quality drummer already and I will be shocked if we don't hear from her from now on.

If you think of that breakthrough song by Cher well over a decade ago, -- Believe-- , if you listen even non-critically we all can hear the original note first slur up or down to proper pitch and it lends a lovely kind of fluidity to the song. Behind that however is an atmosphere that comes with the territory of pitch shifters for vocals. They sound sort of "hollow".

Here is the same song as the kids were singing by a much older group with studio quality recording and if you check it out you can hear that same hollowness but without that fluid slur. It's been years since I was in a modern pro recording studio but I subscribe to a number of music and music gear/technique forums but none where people commonly use (resort to) any form of autotune so I can't be dead certain but I strongly suspect it on this girl's voice (and commented on it). Listen and see what you think. I bet you can detect what I'm referring to. It's a bit clouded by really excessive compression (she likes hearing her breath ) which can contribute to "hollowness" but unless it is some compressor I've never heard before it sounds like modern autotune to me.

I switched from guitar to oud many years ago so my guitar playing is a lot less fluent than what it used to be.
I like to say "Nothing is hard once you know how" and to an extent I think that's quite true. I am a pretty dedicated plectrum guy and even when I don't use a flat pick in order to do the Blues Claw finger style, I alternate to holding my thumb and forefinger as if I was holding a pick to get the increased flexibility between skin and nail attack. What can be hard, maybe impossible, no matter how long we practice, is timing. Stevie Ray Vaughan does a superb cover of Jimi Hendrix's Little Wing but it feels subtly different because of timing, somewhat influenced by Stevie's growing up with Country as a staple and Jimi with R&B, but ultimately timing is biological homeostasis. We all have our own unique internal clock.

Regardless, kudos both on having worked out some level of finger-picking and also by choosing the Oud. I have witnessed a number of guitar players migrate to other instruments like the Bazuki for example and vice versa and the blend is always very interesting. I'd love to hear something of yours sometime.

And All Because The Lady Loves

Rachel Collins (Bass) had later formed another band with two German (or Swiss) musicians: “The Collins”. I had heard them later in Nuremberg, but currently cannot find anything from this band nor what they have become in the meantime.

It looks though as if the Collins' fine guitarist Matthias Constanzer has passed away. He plays the mandolin on this tune.
