OT Beefheart Quote

Captain Beefheart's Commandment of guitar playing #1
Listen to the birds
That's where all the music comes from. Birds know everything about how it should sound and where that sound should come from. And watch hummingbirds. They fly really fast, but a lot of times they aren't going anywhere.

This from Teddy's sig file reminded me to ask, has anyone listened to slowed down birdsong much?  Its amazing, they start to sound like Hnedrix solo's at a point, all backwards and crazy good.  The Good Captain was on to something there


Till now you seriously considered yourself to be the body and to have a
form. That is the primal ignorance which is the root cause of all trouble.

- Ramana Maharshi (1879-1950)
