Hey Rick, big fan of yours here. I wanted to let you know that your analysis of such videos and your videos on theory, etc are much loved by I'm sure, millions over the world! I've got a suggestion for you though... Why don't you react to music from across the world? I'm sure you'd find a ton of interesting chord progressions and scales that'd keep you coming back for more!

Joni Mitchell "River" as number one , something about winter on the Canadian Prairies , gets in the blood then deeper in the bone. Those long winter nights that Christmas lights quietly let you know of happy times inside.

It all sounds forgettable. I’m not saying it’s bad. I’m saying it’s all generally safe. I bet in six months you could do this again and there will be similarities. I think I’ve hit that age where I’ve kinda heard it all. None of these are as creative or interesting as say 21 pilots. It’s all songs about penis and vagina or the lack thereof.

I think you can argue the same about Noel Gallagher as someone like Kurt Cobain. There is all these subtle and very clever nuances in their compositions that you can bet your last buck they didn’t know or understand the reason why it made the songs good, but their ear knew what was good and that’s the mark of a truly great composer. If you have Rick’s insane level of knowledge and write a song throwing in a “dissonant sus 2 minor 4th of the pentatonic scale” because you know it is a sound that resonates with people then to me that’s kind of writing to a formula, playing a note or chord variation because it’s what your ear wants to hear is composition.

Music hasn’t made me smile in a long time. There really is some killer magic in what these “outros” create. It’s very intriguing that so many of these great “feels” and emotions don’t seem to be something that can be placed earlier in the songs. Very intriguing.

What I learned so far: Besides being really open-minded, it feels to me that Rick's analysis goes from the producing and song-writing standpoint rather than his personal opinion about the artist attitude and whatnot which is cool, but then again I'm not that much into today's pop music.

I feel terrible. I think I'm suffering weird things throughout the shutdown. One of them has been hearing melodies/chords in my head. And then all I can do is sing my cell number or a simple nursery rhyme to them and add nonsense phrases to them. But just as quickly as they happen, my dogs bark or I have to check email or something else comes up. And then they disappear and I don't remember a thing. And seeing now that it takes lots of people to write one song, it makes me feel like I could do no worse on my own. If only I wasn't so constantly distracted.

I am an amateur bass player and took up the instrument late in life. I studied diligently and discovered Jaco. I can understand most great bass players and even learn some of their stuff if I practice. Jaco is from another planet, played his fret less with perfect intonation and his knowledge of music theory was without peer. What a shame in terms of his mental problems and the end of his life. Everyone who knew him loved him.

I'm a Gen-x and I can say (hand on my heart) that I think current pop music is just trash. I know that might offend people, and I don't want to...but I have to be honest. Young people today are being so ripped off and denied. We had great music in my generation and we also loved the previous generations music. But now its all slapped together on a drum machine and a computer...and the singers are having their voices altered by auto-tune programs. There's just no creativity. It's sad.
