^ No OSFA in it's entirety? ^ Giving consideration to the following FZ never played there. The ZPZ band played 2 nights. They played OSFA in it's entirety the previous night. The diversity over two nights seems a bit more NLightening. Thanks Gary, I wasn't looking for an excuse or an apology, just ...

For anyone wondering about Dweezil Zappa's Fretboard Freedom. Pointedly how it is used in live performance. Tonight's show at the House of Blues, Dallas Texas has some fine examples. One example is DZs 2nd guitar solo in The Grand Wazoo. Dweezl instructs the band and it develops into a Fretboard Fre...

DZ doesn't need an apologist for him. . You've clearly lost something in translation. In no way, shape or form am I appologizing about anything. Having just watched the House of Blues show I remain steadfast that Zappa Plays Zappa performs the music better. In no way do I think every person on God'...

hmm what seems to be restricting his fretboard freedom? Dweezil himself said that he was still learning his parts for Sinister II. Because the tune is so awesome they were going to play it without the composed guitar parts anyways. Not being critical or negative. Just looking forward to it being th...

hmm what seems to be restricting his fretboard freedom? Having seen two live shows I have yet to notice any such restriction to Dweezil's Fretboard Freedom. Nowhere in the composers design did it ever state that Dweezil is missing anyhing. Could Dweezil at some point perform some of the written gui...

Is that guy kidding or what? In regards to conceptual continuity with Ancient Aliens, I would have assumed you were well rehearsed in these matters. To take things a bit further back, during the 71 tour The Mothers were performing the Divan Suite. The concepts within Divan show a clear and concise ...

The setlist reminds us that We Are Not Alone. In the part where they have introduced Sinister Footwear, for my ears, that further adds to the Ancient Aliens aspect of the material. I don't know as of yet what Dweezil is doing with the solo section, but I am sure he will do something amazing,... in t...

I should have asked Joe at the Yogurt show. The vibe was too thick to think about anything but the moment, that night. I've said this before but I rarely if ever ask Joe about what he's been working on in the vault. I like surprises! The vault, ....these FZ, GZ, DZ, and JT productions, they certain...

I still love FZs music. It's really all I currently listen to and probably always will, but being st...

If I may add upon my hopes of this project evolving. A local based show such as this lends itself to expanding exposure to unique arrangements. For example, the 78' arrangement of Village Of The Sun. If Zappa Plays Zappa were to do a tour that focused on unique arrangements the promoters may have a ...

Would love for this project to evolve. The Strawberry Grade A Net WT Heavy selection of arrangements seemed like a fine beginning. Here's hoping to a wide variety of flavors with CDs and DVDs of for the less fortunate parts of the world.

I sure hope DZ won't have to chime in on this. He's a little busy right now. Let all the ranters rant. There's a musical doin's a transpiring! :mrgreen: 8) I certainly hope nothing gets in the way of his creative process. All his reports regarding this project put my mindframe in hebbin'.

DZ probably doesn't even know that Trendy comes here and posts negatively against FZ fans. The way a few of the so called fans communicate here at this site I have to wonder if they are even Frank Zappa fans. Did not Frank Zappa and Dweezil Zappa collaborate on Dragon Master. From my memory Dweezil...

Sounds like a cool project. And an extra 1/4 tone fretted (strat) guitar?! I wonder how that'll sound...? Investigating the wonders of the world are a great reason to be alive. While I have yet to have heard what that particular instrument sounds like, back in the early 70s I was listening to Harry...

In speaking of The Man From Utopia, Thing Fish and Them Or Us, there seems to be some common production element that co...

Food for thought.
