    Today it’s Raisins. Yes I believe it will be Raisins today.

    P.S ANYONE KNOW WHAT IS SAID IN THE DIALOGUE BETWEEN WHAT SOUNDS LIKE TWO GIRLS DURING THE STEADY DRUMMING AND LIGHT NOTE RIFFS IN RAISINS.

    Lung and that "wha-a-uh" honk thingy in In a Jar are always pretty neat to hear.

    I’ve always liked the one on Thumb the best. It’s a very sad sounding solo and always gives me chillbumps.

    It’s funny because Thumb is probably one of J’s simplest songs – it’s pretty much just two chords – but the solo has a really unique sound because it’s in like a different mode than what you would expect. From a my guitar geek’s perspective, the song is in D and C but in the solo he seems to switch into like a G major scale. It’s almost more like a jazz thing. Very cool.

    Maybe some bigger guitar geek out there can tell me what you call the mode that solo is played in. Like mixolydian or something like that… J’s got lots of different modes!

    It’s still the feel and the emotion of the solo that really makes it good, so I should just shut up about analyzing it.

    hmmm… maybe I should be posting this stuff over in the guitar forum.

    Start Choppin – for recorded stuff

    Ammaring (Live) – if you get a chance to see it. If anyone got to see J play it acoustic I think you would agree that it rocks.

    Definitely agree with you about Ammaring live, just awhile ago HOB broadcast a live J Mascis/Fog show…that solo in Ammaring killed me. Actually it kills me every single time I hear it, live or on disc!!!

    This one is easy for me, I always thought the solo in "Out There" was fucking awesome. From J’s tone to his fluidity while soloing. Its a great solo. I also am quite fond of the solo in Thumb. That solo almost tells a story by itself, truly amazing. Now that I’m thinking about them I think I’m going to go listen to them. Later :)

    myxolidian is major, so you be the judge. I think J plays alot in just Major or Minor keys though. ???
