Jam Band Electronica Request
Does anyone have any tabs, links, insights or advice they can offer on jam band electronica stuff such as Lotus, STS9, Disco Biscuits, Umphreys, Galactic, etc.? There is little out there on this genre of the jam scene and looking to maybe start something up in my area. Thanks in advance.
A TB'r turned me on to these, they kick butee.
"Sound Tribe Sector 9"
Almost a jam band
Oh right STS9 = Sound Tribe Sector 9, you mentioned that one already. :)
My only observation is that this type of music usually has a catchy melodic theme that goes throughout the entire songs.
Youve listed a variety of jambands but neither really sound alike. Not sure that Galactic is very electronic nor is Umphrey's.. They are highly technical however..Considering about 95% of jam is improvisation Im not sure you will find a TON out there. What is it you are trying to learn or figure out? Take a signature key and have at it.. Key of E is probably the easiest...
edit.. funny the STS9 link has a song called Open E (assuming key of E).. there ya have it
I guess to answer your question with my own question..do you have a decent keyboardist?
Umphreys and Galactic have a lot of synth in their music, especially live when I have seen them. I'm not looking to cross over into say dub step stuff but more jam bandish with synths, etc. I am currently working on putting something together. I have leads on a drummer and lead guitarist and a possible synth player. Looking to add some more pieces and see where it goes. Unfortunately, my skill level and ear training isn't that great. I learn most of my songs with my classic/modern rock band through tabs although I do pickup stuff quickly and can generally play something given a few moments to catch on so basically just looking for anything that would be helpful.
The disco biscuits
Organik time machine
there are a million of these bands.
I will post some links to some really cool shows when I am off my phone.
