Everlast Youtube – What it’s Like

I first heard this tune by Everlast called What it’s like, a few years back when a guitar stdent I had said he wanted to learn it.  It’s very simple and that in itself is a great lesson in music. The lesson being is that many players over complicate music, why complicate something just to be clever.  I like this tune, it’s a handful of chords, the guitar part is seventy-ish but the vocal line and rhythm is sot of 90’s.   It’s a Dm chord at the beginning, do a bit of ear training and work out the rest. Note the slide up when he plays the middle bit.

    Hi Tony. I would respectfully point you to Seth Godin’s blog, especially this entry (http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2009/02/music-vs-the-music-industry.html). I cordially suggest that your urging to buy music rather than download it for free is arguing against evolution in the music business. Seth (and many others) have written extensively on how new digital models of distribution in music (and other human productions) are not necessarily bad, though they will shake things up in the status quo and demand that many who made a living the old way now adjust to the new way.

    I hope that soon the very concept that an idea ‘belongs’ to someone will become merely a footnote in intellectual history. Until very recently no ‘copyright’ laws existed, and I hope that soon they’ll be eliminated again. Execution of an idea, not the idea itself, seems to be the only thing a human being should be able to claim as their own.

  2. Thanks

    I am familiar with Seth Godin and his brilliance, I will read the article. And I will respond.

    My current concern at this point is the Limewire and the lack of care and respect for musicians work and the underlying thought in the current generation of ‘What’s mine is mine alone and what’s yours is also mine’

    And yes I do understand that there are new possible models, but until new models are up and runing and musicians are hip to thsat idea it’s a problem. And thanks for the heads up

    I read a very interesting article in 1998 in Recording Mag about the direction audio formats and media was going and why they decided to go the way they were going. The engineers were screaming no, no, and the big corps were saying yes yes, the big corps won and we now have crap audio quality and a generation of listeners that have no idea of sound. Another conversation but I’ll try and find the article

    Jeff, I’ve had a quick look, am heading out the door and will give a close-up later. Yes I understand branding.

    Regards Tony

      I think there are a number of issues with this. There is a big difference between what I am talking about and what you have mentioned relating to Seth Godin’s post. Yes the future of the music industry will definitely morph into something else which is more friendly for the musician, and to move forward and work with the new technologies and marketing possibilities which are unfolding is a great idea. My one line quote about Paying For Music instead of Downloading is a very different issue. At this stage numerous musicians, either famous or not, do not have in place or are not aware of an alternative workable system for marketing their music and do not in any way benefit from people knocking of their music because it has been uploaded and downloaded on home user computers via file sharing software. This has nothing to do with the possibilities which will no doubt become real sooner or later, and as it stands it is a breach of the current copyright laws which to my knowledge have not changed. Like many musicians, I find the music industry/machine outrageously ugly. I remember a friend of mine who played in one of the top bands in Australia getting excited one day when he received a royalty cheque envelope in the mail in 1985. It was interesting to watch his face when he saw the cheque was for 23 cents. Changes are healthy but they need to be agreed upon by all involved, the system we have in place at the moment dos have serious flaws but what we also have is a global community of people who are knowingly stealing music
