Not "freaking out" over the words. I got my degree in Amirkian Capitalism at the University of Frank Zappa so dig where I'm comin from cuz this is what he would say:

Totally - no need to freak out over the words?!? Did you buy it for the lyrical content? I BOUGHT IT FOR THE COMPLETE MUSICAL CONTENT BASED ON PAST PUBLICATIONS If you already knew the words, who cares!? BESIDES THE POINT BUT ORE IMPORTANTLY, WHY R U SO WILLING TO BE CHEATED, IF NOT RIPPED OFF? It's the notes that matter. ITS THE COMPLETE ACCURRATE CONTENT THAT MATTERS, NOTES, WORDS & ASTERISKS. The arrangements are for guitar. MOSTLY, BUT NOT SO IN PAST The arrangements have been for guitar since the first book of the series. MOSTLY, BUT NOT ALL. If you purchased each of them, as you stated - then you should know that. I DO. HOW COME YOU DON'T?Why would they break format and throw in a horn chart (DIDN'T ASK FOR A CHART - NO CHART NEEDED - JUST A SIMPLE, ACCURATE NOTAION OF "TENOR SAX" INSTEAD OF "HORNS") on this one when the other 3 books you've purchased haven't done so? I can think of plenty of examples of songs through the series that only have *one* keyboard part but you don't hear me bitching that it wasn't included.
You bitch earlier in this thread that there is no bass in this book yet there was no bass in the other 3 books so.... what the fuck? In SOFA, would you not agree that the bass line that goes in triplet fashion ba ba-da-da ba-da-da ba-da-da baaaaahhhhhhhh,, ba bahhhhhhhhh, bu bahhhhhhhhhhhh is crucial to the arrangement? HOW COME IT AINT THERE, DOOFUS? Chilllllll out Francis.

So, let me get this straight. You're not happy with the book? :lol:



Let's put it this way - (as a musical arranger with some ideas that FZ would probably dig), I'm going to have to work a lot harder to produce them...........

Or put it this way - any amatuer guitar player or his mother with any basic sense of notation could have hacked out this laughing stock of a publication of music from one of - if not THE BEST composer in American history. FZ deserves more respect.....................

Or, lemme put it to you this way:

Who were FZ's influences? Answer - several,, but prominently IGOR STRAVINSKY.

LEMME TELL YA SOMETHING ABOUT MY RELATIONSHIP WITH IGOR. I NEVER MET HIM. :)

HOWEVER..................................................................................................

MY TEACHER recorded with him. IN FACT, THE RITE OF SPRING - 4 trumpets - (I have yet to determine which part) but so far only 2 names have surfaced: Robert Nagel and my teacher James Burke. So go figure: there are 3 D trumpets and 1 C trumpet. James Burke was either C trumpet ( more likely) or 1st chair D trumpet. I have the score and the notation is spot on PERFECT, as expected..................................and that is the difference between a guitarhead and a real musician.....BTW

No clue what your beef is. Go seek a fight elsewhere... I'm going to get back to trying to get some of the Inca passages down on the keys at the intended BPM. Or get some nookie. :wink:

I can absolutely say, without hyperbole, that this is worse than a million Vietnams.

Even though this is way too much fun, I'm calling the boys home before anyone gets hurt.
