[QUOTE=abcpea2;28453642]i only listen to music in 987/128 with 2 hr long songs[/QUOTE] That would be... 7,7109375/4 :v:

The lower number (or the one on the right) tells you what kind of note (half/fourth/eighth note etc.) takes one beat and the upper (one on the left) tells you how many of those notes there are in a bar. So basically 4/4 has four fourth notes in one bar, 7/8 has 7 eighth notes etc. Oh, and they can be mixed up as long as the sum of the notes equals the upper number, so 3/4 can have two eighth notes and two fourth notes etc. But I don´t know what the difference is between 12/8 and 6/4 or 3/4 and 6/8. Is there a practical difference?

Next time you listen to something in 6/8, a jig or a lot of Opeth's acoustic parts, where the pulse is clearly 6/8, try counting in 3/4 and you'll see what i mean about feel. You CAN, but there's no point [editline]6th March 2011[/editline] Fuuu my automerge

[QUOTE=MintyMginty;28453252]Is anybody else hyped for the new Devin Townsend albums as much as I am? :v:[/QUOTE] Duuuude fucking yes. Absolutely psyched. They're my most anticipated releases of the year for sure. And this is along with Opeth and Mastodon :v: Going to see him in Glasgow tomorrow with bravehat and Dopey Trout Cannot wait :gizz:
London sold out way too fast, really pissed off I can't see him. :(
I've decided to give these bands a listen:[list] [*]Jethro Tull [*]Dzyan [*]Van Der Graaf Generator [*]Camel [*]Kansas [*]Magma [*]Marillion [*]Solaris [*]Fates Warning [/list] Which is bad since I have a report I need to finish writing.
Try Soft Machine and PFM too.
[QUOTE=TehKaboose;28454180]I'm still not sure I get it. Could you point me to such song? And how can you count 3/4 in 2s?[/QUOTE] I'm oversimplifying it, the point is when you get a song which has a part in 6/8, the pulse is in 3s, for example, the downbeat in 6/8 comes on One and Four. For 12/8 the strong beats are One, Four, Seven and Ten. With simple time the strong beats are wherever the feel dictates, most of the time on One or Three, but it varies depending on the style of music. The point is, 6/8, though seemingly related to 3/4, has a lot more in common with 2/4 because of how the beats are spaced. Same with 12/8 and 4/4. If you listen to 4/4 in triplet time you're effectively hearing 12/8. An example of 6/8 is the verses of this song, the choruses are in 4/4. Try counting the verses in 3/4 and you'll have some trouble, unless you count it in double time :v: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7F2X3rSSCU[/media]
Could someone explain to me how Bill Bruford got to quit Yes immediately after Close To The Edge. I still don't have much understanding of how they let him go so easily. [editline]6th March 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Shibbey;28422541]the first true progressive rock album was from King Crimson, who somehow managed to write a jazz-metal song in the 60s. [/QUOTE] Really should have said "first popular progressive rock album that put the genre on the map"
[QUOTE=AK'z;28456355]Could someone explain to me how Bill Bruford got to quit Yes immediately after Close To The Edge. I still don't have much understanding of how they let him go so easily.[/QUOTE] I remember reading something about him hearing the words "Total Mass Retain" and decided he'd had a good run but needs a different band.
I understand King Crimson's appeal to him as a drummer seeing as they were very jazz oriented too, and it was the wise decision (not to hurt people's feelings). I just don't know how that came about. Probably the best thing he could do really.
