Jimmy Fallon, The Roots and Carly Rae Jepsen’s clip reminded me of a couple of things today:
1. dynamics plays a big part in any genre of music. (even in a simple video like this, ?uesto can school any other drummer how to be incredibly dynamic LITERALLY, check out how he goes in an out, ain’t that much more impactful? i wish 90% of musicians understood that)
2. a good song doesnt need fancy instrumentation to be a good song, im pretty sure you can sing that tune by itself and understand the theme and message. incidentally, they used the “randomest” instruments to supply the harmony and rhythm.
3. stop taking your craft too seriously and have a little fun.
4. sometimes a simple message can be conveyed better across millions of people rather than a deep seeded mouthful thats full of insight. I guess you can chalk this up to message “dynamics” as well.
5. So many people think this kind of stuff is “sellout” crap, but coming from a production standpoint, i think this song is well thought out and exercises extreme discipline in harmony and rhythmic choices. (great job Josh Ramsay)
6. dont play your recorder backward. HAHA
7. always get Frank Knuckles to play bongos
good morning! peace to all you hAtErZzzZZZZzZZZ!!! ^_____^
