/fusion/ Anonymous 03/21/2021 (Sun) 08:08:03 No.1109
The in-spot for appreciation of Jazz and its multiple off-shots, chiefly among them the flamboyant and ever-shifting Fusion genre along with some House and its evolution into NĂ¼-Jazz. Pieces and solo-ing samples along with actual tiny bits of history (usually) will be served once in a while for performer context. These genres usually have the particularity that the bands are very temporal and/or have members with extensive side works so i will probably post the line-ups too in the webm dumps. Also fusion albums move very closely in the border of jazz, rock and funk so it won't be rare to post music that could very well fit into other genres, especially progressive rock. Check our mother thread /musicprod/ as well for more discussion: >>42
I was supposed to make this post earlier but i wanted to wait specifically on a March 21 to commemorate the birthday of what is, in my humble opinion after having heard plenty of music, the most advanced electric guitarist to have ever lived Two years ago was the date but procrastination impeded me, then one year ago i had most of it but J.W got the spam and today there's no limits other than never having completed it fully. I might wind some things and rush a bit, along with the topic being a bit too leaned on the Hard Rock side, but i want to express my fondness to this particular individual whom i never met but had in its scarce bio, but rich hearsay, the example of a man who lived life like not many did: In relative NEETdom, taking his careful and methodical time with his hobbies and reaching a technical pinnacle still seen as unreachable to this day, and without harming anything or anyone to the point of being considered a genuinely good person by most people who met him. If there ever was a kind of superior entity living among us in contemporary times, be it an "angel" or an "alien", this guy surely was one.
I don't really know anything about the genre, but I've loved this piece ever since I heard it.
>>1110 Aaand i was supposed to post the webms by now but i wanted to write about Shawn's history along with his buddy Jonas Hellborg... but i don't remember where i left that notepad and i also don't recall the exact details of what i wrote. I have a folder chuck filled with their careers but not a lot in my mind to explain it decently so i am going to post and write on the go if as i was asked out of nowhere in the day of his birthday who and what was Shawn Lane, a man who is still considered by some as a candidate for an undercover higher entity disguising as a person and chief definition example of overplaying the fills.
Shawn Lane was born a March 21th in Memphis, Tennessee, the so-called Cradle of Rock n' Roll which despite its many memes actually did end up giving birth to a titan artist post-Elvis, at least in what respects pure guitar playing which is somewhat of an irony taking into account guitar was at the end of the day actually his second instrument. His rise to his speed-based shenanigans seems to be that he seemed to be born with hyperactivity and some form of nervous system problem which rendered his fingers to react or seem to move faster than usual, which coupled with a refined alternate picking gave way to absurd bpm counts which were not heard of in the 70's, something he could also replicate with the keys. He played piano from early age to accompany his sisters, later he fondled the guitar but didn't take it seriously until he was 12, at 14 he was already the main guitar player for a relatively known band in the US Black Oak Arkansas although for touring days only. But around these dates he would also deal with his eventual demise, psoriasis and what's worse the arthritic kind of it, usually attributed/mentioned on par with his nervous system characteristics. Some speculate he didn't often play at full speed due to this which is hilarious to think in some way; in the first webm we can see a pretty fast but still primitive or "simple" shredding, still by 1979 this was years before some others did in the mainstream and relatively clean too (an evolution to the harsh shredding of McLaughlin or Di Meola) After touring he decided to study music theory to have more solid bases, along the way he recorded some demos and stuff (heard here: >>1110) which rendered him somewhat of an urban legend in the heavy metal circles of the U.S. and even Europe as nobody or very few had heard or seen his work in person (despite always gigging country and jazz in Memphis bars). At least according to Michael Angelo Batio it seemed Shawn was known as the Van Halen Killer but nobody knew why he didn't have a record behind him or somewhat, he just was that guy who released demos and showed the mainstream were still kids or that was until the likes of Yngwie Malmsteem or Jason Becker appeared... yet his fame persisted. Meanwhile in the mid to late 80's our man here, despite his underground notoriety, was chilling around reading books and doing wedding gigs along with bar plays, in the second webm we can see a now silly trope of paid bands overplaying the hell out of ZZ Top's Sharp Dressed Man, and overplaying he did, his usual characteristic when first heard by many people yet here it is also more refined than before. Also to note the guy being a fat scrub now, this usually attributed to his love for food but also his psoriasis treatment based on hydrocortisone which makes you swell in size, focused on the joints.
>>1109 /We're looking for some music for the /icup/ tournament, could you give us some cool anthems to use?
