Thanks, guys, I hadn't thought about or listened to Paul Butterfield in a long time. Made me think about the Super  Sessions album. Butterfield & friends really ripped on that one. Need to dig that out again real soon.

Here's that PBBB "East West" track, I think:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaV-S5ivX3E

Haven't listened to it all yet, but I'm hearing only Western instruments so far.  You will hear tamburas in lots of Western pop though.  Most fetchingly I think in the intro to "Tomorrow Never Knows", which has that modal, non-harmonic feel, itself:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a3NcwfOBzQ

Has a Mixolydian melody (root, major third, fifth, flatted seventh).  Would correspond to khammaj thaat.

Also, whenever you hear "sitar" on pop recordings, 9 times out of 10 it is actually a nifty little Coral Electric Sitar, which was a Silvertone/Danelectro style instrument that had a normal guitar neck and tuning and a "buzz bridge" which approximates a guitar sound.  See Steely Dan's "Do it again" for a good example.  These are neat instruments but nothing like a sitar, which despite being a fretted stringed instrument, is so shockingly unlike a guitar to play I almost swore it off the first time I played one.  But they lured me back...

On the order of stringed instruments. How about a fine nod to the late great Bill Monroe. Bluegrass...gotta love good old American Bluegrass music.

while I like both the sitar & banjo.... today's the 100th anniversary of Robert Johnson's birthday. don't know if he actually made a deal at the crossroads, but he could make those strings sizzle, cry, weep & moan, and sing. happy birthday, Robert.

Today is Mrs. Punatic's birthday too.  She can make me sizzle, cry, weep & moan, and sing.

We are headed over to the Coffee Shack in Kealakekua for brunch.  They serve homegrown Kona coffee and make an awesome lilikoi mimosa. No lilikoi for me though, I'm batting in the DD postion.  Guess I'll just have to settle for the coffee.  ;D

Got the traveling soundtrack all lined up.  Today it's kihoalu.

<edit>  Added some Robert Johnson to the line up to honor the centenial.  Thanks for the heads up Mark!

Been listening to a lot of reggae lately when I brew. Sets a mellow mood. I would guess that a lot of you have your lap top near your rig on brew day. If you do, check out Pandora Radio. Its great. You can find just about anything on there and its FREE!

I would like to raise a pint to the 100th anniversary of the birth of the late great legendary godfather of Blues and American music, none other than Robert Johnson.



Robert Leroy Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) was an American blues singer and musician. His landmark recordings from 1936–1937 display a combination of singing, guitar skills, and songwriting talent that have influenced later generations of musicians. Johnson's shadowy, poorly documented life and death at age 27 have given rise to much legend, including a Faustian myth. As an itinerant performer who played mostly on street corners, in juke joints, and at Saturday night dances, Johnson enjoyed little commercial success or public recognition in his lifetime.

But...his music layed the path for many generations and has continued to influence today's artists.
