Hope you are feeling well and healthy!
I just wanted to tell you that I really like the dots! To me this band and the music is like an entity! It’s not just the band of the “new” guitar player of RHCP, it is DOT HACKER!!! Four members which make really awesome music together!
Well, now to my questions.
Are you still learning songs for yourself? I mean songs you won’t necessarily play live, just songs you really like. And if so, what was the last song you learned or what song(s) are you looking forward to learn?
And, when you write new songs, how much music theory is there involved? Is it just feeling or do you sometimes think about particular scales, rhythmn and stuff?
I wish you all the best and really hope to see you with the dots in Germany some time!
Thanks for the warm wishes and hopes. Do you mean learning RHCP songs or any song? I’ve been so busy lately, It’s hard to recall. I haven’t sat down and learned a song in a while. I’ve just been working on my own songs I guess. Now that tour is over, I’ll go back to learning songs and focusing on how to play guitar. To answer your question about theory, I don’t really know it. I know little bits, but I don’t really apply too much of it when writing. That being said, every time I talk to someone about theory, they always say I know a lot more than I think I do. So, maybe I do know it, I just don’t know that I know it. It’s a mystery.
