New guy-- not a musician- mostly

Postby FranklinsTower » Mon Sep 16, 2013 11:28 pm

Hey I am new to this forum. I am not a musician although i have recently been tinkering with the keyboard in the hopes of adding a musical dimension to things. For now all I can say is that the music of the Dead changed my life profoundly-- I have had a couple of profound spiritual experiences while hearing them and what they did continues to inform my life.

Welcome! Have fun here and learning the keys dude. GD's music still shapes me and informs my life almost 30 years after first hearing it.

Welcome - by the way Franklin's Tower is pretty much A > G > D. Go grab a used keyboard on Craig's list and let it rip.

I actually bought a Korg recently for around 800 bucks. It is pretty neat. I run a small meditation center and my long term goal is to be able to play really simple but improvisational stuff with a bunch of chanters and some other musicians too. We want to model it after what the dead did but just much more simple-- kinda like the stuff Jerry did with Hamza Al Din, but all of us in a gig circle.

One of the women who comes is a concert violinist and I turned her onto the Dead and she said that it is going to change the whole way she plays music.
