Re: love, vision, and archetypes

I have made a promise to myself and others: I am working on a book ("Play
Guitar By Ear," which is a story in itself) and as soon as I am done with
it, I am going to return to playing in public, including looping. Once I
start that up, I will undoubtedly assemble some CD's. And you folks at LD
will hear about it as soon as it happens!

Internal, focused work at 60 bpm; brain work at 80-92 with lots of 
note activity; physical work/dance at 120-140; etc.]
> Love: romantic melodic

> Hate: free tonal melody [i disagree. Only if it "upsets" a tonality, and
even then, one of my favorite loop strategies is to build a tonality and
shift to another right on top of it. Moments of atonal wandering feel like 
kind of questioning, not hate]

the music has some absolute meanings to it. We got global musical

Can't wait to hear from others on this!
