If you could take a private guitar lesson with Fripp...

Seen something about the guy that looks like a mushroom? Perhaps you just want to comment on his diaries? Post all that Fripperholic stuff here.

Darren
DAZ,
That is 1 of my favourite things THIS FRIPP does in recorded performance, despite my not being a speed demon.
It affects me in the same manner that having MS. SUSAN LYNCH stick her tongue in my ear might do.

I think it would be interesting to talk with him about techniques of relaxation and concentration. How to let the music speak for itself and not get in the way of it.

And how to get the most out of practice sessions of any duration of time.

As far as technique goes- scale exercises, chord voicings, general technique exercies how he produces his various tones, the use of Soundscapes..

And also just to discuss "moods" in music. Colors of music. Emotions in music. What feelings and emotions music evokes in us. Going beyond the technicalities of music theory etc. and more into the mysteries, unexplained and at times paranormal powers of music, what it does and what it exactly is. Why music makes us feel (and even act in) certain ways.

"If you could take a private guitar lesson with Fripp..."

.. I wouldn't. I don't need anybody to tell me that my technique is pathetic. I know that perfectly well.

Another reason is, I think it takes a brilliant mind to adapt the crafty teachings and make it sound original. As much as I like some of the music coming from crafties, I don't really want my playing to sound like that.

But I'm just a basement dweller. What do I know.

For a minute then, I thought MalcX was still alive... Unhappy thoughts...

I had the same reaction. Sent shivers down my spine.

Wow, me too. :shock: As a non-musician, this was the best thing in this thread, otherwise I would ask Fripp to teach me play guitar from the very begining, but I dare he would... :roll:

And this is what stood out to me.
"...Be seeing you!"
Spooky really.
Lessons with Fripp no thank you. I like to be loose when making music. Fripp seems way to up tight for me. As he would put it bad vibes. But I really don't know if that's what he's really like.

Dear Jtmack,

I can honestly say that I have
never been in the presence of
a guitarist or teacher who is more
relaxed and warm than Fripp during
instruction. I supplied plenty of my
own tension and nervousness. That being
said, the instruction time that I have
had with Fripp largely took place in
a group/circle setting, and in an individual
meeting. These aren't really private lessons.
I've been told that "back in the day" Mr. Fripp
was more of the "cruel but kind" stripe, and
is now rather more overtly compassionate.
His economy of movement and immersion in
what he is doing in the present moment
can look stiff, but actually is unfathomably
relaxed and focused.
