Bye in advance!
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:05pm bud dock:

whats that "bye, loser" about? Who done it?
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:05pm bud dock:

did the DJ have a break up or something? I guess the time for inquiry has past huh...
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:06pm coelacanth:

Hi Bethany. Watch out for carry-overs from Vicky's show. 'Bunch of losers.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:07pm maestroso:

Hallo Bethany!
Normally I'd be at a rehearsal this evening, but due to the weather I'm enjoying your show in a warm home studio.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:07pm bud dock:

I think there are lines that needs to be drawn when you are putting play list online.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:07pm Bethany Ryker:

No scandal or diatribe, despite the piece I'm playing on air!
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Evening - nice to be here.

No scandal or diatribe, but plenty of spectacle and clamor.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- those are nice lines.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:12pm JakeGould:

I can’t get into scandal. Bye!
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:14pm JakeGould:

Seriously, really nice stuff for a slushy Monday.

Yay bethany!
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:18pm coelacanth:

Bethany,i'm sure i've never posted on your comments board before-since i usually listen via airwaves.We spoke several times on the phone though,in the good old days of your sunday eve shift.
Alas i must go make my own noise,but may be back before the end. I'll try!
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:18pm glenn:

browsing the score? i wish i could read music at that level.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:22pm glenn:

15 intervals? i think that's technically impossible, given the architecture of a standard guitar. the frets would have to be reset to have shorter distances between them. if it's doable otherwise, i'd be interested in knowing how.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:23pm Droll:

glenn, No better way to learn than following along. There are some great YT videos where the score scrolls along as the song plays.
  Mon. 2/3/14 8:25pm 12539:

Glenn, it looks as if he uses custom guitars:
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:25pm coelacanth:

glenn- maybe a baritone guitar?
(i dunno)
okay really,bye!
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:25pm Bethany Ryker:

@glenn: I posted the link where Blackwood talks about the intervals and frets in the liner notes of the CD, have a go!
  Mon. 2/3/14 8:26pm casey:

Enjoying the show. Wishing I'd known about it sooner. Big Easley Blackwood fan. Thanks for that!
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:29pm glenn:

thank you bethany, i missed that.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:30pm glenn:

oh, i can read music, i just suck at it.
  Mon. 2/3/14 8:31pm dc pat:

This Creston piece is right on.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:33pm Bethany Ryker:

Blackwood has some interesting things to say, and I posted that link after the discussion came up....glad the idea was circling around, it's a technical point that would have passed me by!
  Mon. 2/3/14 8:33pm dc pat:

It's funny--been feeling like I'm listening to too much classical-type music lately so turned on FMU for some rawk. Glad I did

I'm slow on the html hypertext embedding over here that I have to do in the playlist database, sorry guys
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:37pm glenn:

okay, okay. i suck. i can live with it.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:38pm glenn:

do you play guitar 12539?
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...this reminds me of 'Our Town' - but in my ignorance I'm reminded of Copland every week - so you're probably one up on me there glenn...is there anybody doesn't 'play guitar' - ??...
  Mon. 2/3/14 8:41pm 12539:

Glenn, No, I'm just an adventurous listener.
  Mon. 2/3/14 8:42pm 12539:

Once played reeds, and not particularly well.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Indian Ragas are famously time-of-day specific - is my understanding.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:49pm glenn:

all right. very briefly, measure the distance from the head nut to the tailpiece. that is essentially two octaves. the distance from the head nut to the 12th fret is EXACTLY half of the total distance, and is one octave.

thank you @tonyb! Whew.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@glenn: & hence where a major Harmonic is
...funny I never thot about the whole string being two octaves, then...
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 8:57pm JakeGould:

Is this the part of the movie where we find out something is amiss in the town?
  Mon. 2/3/14 8:58pm 12539:

Merci bien, Bethany.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 9:00pm Droll:

Thanks, Bethany! I'm still hoping for a longer slot for you soon!
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 9:00pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...you must have a lot of stamps if you're going to send cards to everyone !
- Thx As Ever.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 9:00pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Look out for slush!
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 9:01pm Bethany Ryker:

I have *lots* of stamps. No worries there.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 9:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...a slush fund maybe...
