  1. ok, so i've narrowed it down to two pieces;

    Black Market or Continuum

    choose for me which you think I should take a bite at now!

    .. all the in the spirit of sheer boredom!! :)
     
  2. Learn to capitalize your "I"'s. :p Other then that, I can't help. Why am I posting this ? I don't know. Perhaps I am bored....
     
  3. I don't know about those two but I like "Portrait of Tracy". Shouldn't take you too long, though.

    black market is pretty frecken easy, it would take about a day to "learn"

    why not go for the piece that would take a lot longer to learn, and therefore cure more boredom.

    Lots of good things to learn in portrait, heck half of the harmonics in it I didn't even know existed!


    PS, playing it correctly is a little tough, pronouncing all the harmonics, especially when there are 2 at once is a bit tricky. For every 1 guy I've heard that actually plays it correct, there are 20 who don't, singling out the dominant harmonics.
     
  8. I think Continum would be the funnest to play,and it sounds like elevator music. So learn that. And when you're done...learn Black Market:D

    Good luck man.

    "Black Market" is a groove...unless you're one of those George Costanza-anal retentive guys who has to have ever note "just like the record"-
    IMO, that's bogus. I would bet the farm that Alphonso/Jaco never played it the same way twice.

    "Continuum" is more of a composed piece.

    I guess "elevator music" has gotten better since I was young...
