Project: Musical activities in the "Progscene"
« on: Sun, 2005-12-11, 12:09:22 »
Hello,

I am a German student of English- and American literatures, cultural studies and media studies. As I am as well a great fan of progressive rock music, I am by now working on a project comparing the Gothic scene with the Prog scene (if there is such a thing). One problem of my work is, that there is no such thing as a study of the Prog scene, while the Gothic scene (at least in Germany) is explored to some extent. If there is literature on Prog, its mostly about the music, a fact which is one argumentative aspect in my work. This is why I am launching some polls in this and some other forums in order to raise some statistical data so that my argumentation which will focus on my personal experiences mostly with the German scene but have some international references as well has some numbers to back it up.

If I can raise enough votes, I may even come back on that subject matter in a later project which could then deal with the prog scene exclusively, and who knows, maybe I will someday even be able to make a book out of it, but that's still just a fantasy.

So, I would be glad if some (or some more) could participate in the polls that I'll launch here. I'll count the results someday in January 2006.

Danke.

Just listening, but I wish I could play an instrument... Maybe I'll get on that one day.

I post a lot on The Shattered Room, KINO-forum, progarchives and some more I can't remember.

I also play an instrument. Not that I'm very good at it, but I'm still learning (and I played "Fallen Idols/Crying For Help II" when John Mitchell was one meter away from me. (10 december KINO-gig, Zoetermeer))

By the way: If you are working as a DJ / web-radio-mod or as the manager of a band / artists, please mark the "two or more of the above mentioned" slot, and then specify in this thread.

Danke.

It's a keayboard-part. No guitar tabs.
But in case you call it keayboard tabs... Ok.

Try this:

Am G Em F
Am G Em F
Am G Em F
Am G Em F
Am G Dm F
Am G Dm F
D E Fm C
D E Fm C

I'm not sure though. I played it from my head, I'm no professional... Besides, it's not the whole part.
If you really want to know you should ask Clive. ;)
