Planning software project proposals for the customers. Damned annoying paperwork. Finding solutions for the requirements and estimating how much time it will take. Without music, I would go insane during such tasks.

I'm (re)discovering Era, a "new age / medieval-religious fantasy" french music group of the late 90's. I love the esthetics of their video clips, and the heavy symbolism inside. Each track is a real little piece of lore. They song in a langage they invented (a linguist was involved), which has some (mostly acoustic) similarities with Latin. A few words seem transparent "Ameno", "Domine"...



I love that one where all the arrogant warlords are defeated by a child and his ball.

I've been diving into 70s metal and hard rock lately, and I always seem to come back to Budgie. What a killer band.

This is what I am listening (watching). I shouldn't have to explain why.

Beatles, Rolling Stones, and other groups of that era as part of my online "History of Rock and Roll" music class.

For those who have not heard this band, I give you the best female singer I have ever heard in my life, period




Mary Fahl--God, that woman never ceases to blow me away

Being a fan of "stoner/doom/psychadelic" rock and metal, I was surfing the youtubes and stumbled upon a German band called Colour Haze. This is great stuff, I am considering buying the album:



And speaking of stoner doom metal (which traces its lineage to the original doom metal band Black Sabbath), there's always the 90s monster band Sleep. Every one of their songs is like getting hit by a freight train of sound:

I recently discovered the Black Veil Brides through a friend, and discovered this.


Damn.

Well, while I am around here...

Five months ago I picked up my acoustic guitar again, after a 16 year break. Various reasons for the break, and the subject is not relevant here. I have been enjoying somewhat getting back into it, really, and revisited (relearning) some favorites, plus some more. Here are a few...

Several Credence Clearwater Revival songs. Effective and relatively easy tunes to sing and play for the beginner...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZwK3VE9jyg

Another of my favorites that is easy to play...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjCw3-YTffo

...and another, VERY easy one...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhcttcXcRYY

...and I should think everyone probably tries to play this one, it is such a "guitar song"...



One that does not sound plausible to start with, but is also really easy. I ape the Korn version more, but the video is not really the sort of thing I want to post here...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZjAantupsA

And this was the only one I could still play when I picked up the guitar again. A motorcyclist friend of mine and I made a "folk version" of this in England, almost 20 years ago, played on a D sharp tuned guitar with the Am, Em, and G chord shapes...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCVrjaDoqSg

Playing again has me appreciating some covers out there, too, which I am presently aspiring to at the moment...

A Joe South cover...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2IR_8tWbNs

Fool's Garden cover...



So, that's what I am listening to.
