no thats moe.
all moe. does is set up a boring chord progression then mess around over it. Not much musical value, good to dance to, but no musical goodness.
all they play is song > jam > song reprise
same formula everytime
they are extremely predictable
and its not even like their jams are different theyre all pretty much the same
Im a guitar player as well and i love improv and guitar jams, but moe doesnt do either very well. Their "improv" is pretty much typical jamband bullshit of playing a 2 chord progression and they get louder as they go on.I dunno. I like it. As a guitar player, I am a sucker for improv and guitar jams.
I am not sure how playing too much equates with not making music, but one man gathers what another man spills, I suppose. All 3 of these bands exhibit far more musicianship than 99% of the music thats out there. Jerry certainly has been critcized for "playing and playing" boring many listeners to tears. Just kinda what your into.
moe. bores me to tears as a guitar player
im not saying playing too much makes it not music, its just that everything they play is meaninless, nothing special about it. theres nothing new or creative just that same stale jam that goes nowhere.
yes jerry "played and played" but so did the rest of the band and it wasnt like moe with just some simple chords while chuck and al play they same solos they play every night.
Dead could keep "playing and playing" but keep it interesting. So can umphreys(even more than the dead in my opinion), and the biscuits sometimes can too.
but not moe
woohoo im seein umphs in 2 weeks
ps now that i think about it all the people i know who are musicians or just people who really pay attention to the music like umphreys, because it is musically amazing and so much more exciting
moe is just a band to go dance to, umphs and shit is more for the music
