Ha. Someone who took longer than me!

I just got that of Montreal album, uh, this week. Kinda slow on the uptake on that one.

haha, well it's alright... I'm pretty sure you have hosted most of them at one point or another... in fact i own nearly all of them. I'm just too lazy to hunt for the others!

you should post favorite songs from each album

just a thought.

hey, i'm posting here instead of bugging the whole elliott group...i figure i'll just bug you. i think you should just try to play your favorite elliott songs, cos you'll like it better. (and don't worry about making it sound perfect; elliott was a really good guitar player and he did some crazy shit.) yeah, you'll get stumped and stuck sometimes, but when you can finally play even part of a song you love...it's really fucking cool. i still get excited sometimes that i can play "angeles." it's surprising the way a song looks brutally complicated at first (say, "between the bars," "miss misery," or "waltz #2"), but it's not so bad once you're more used to using lots of chords and changing them all the time. then there are songs like "no name #5," which is always weird.

oh, and in case no one's told you, you want to barre with the side of your index finger. i remember that was a big revelation when i figured that out on my own. have fun.

by the way, did you notice that "amen-omen" is an anagram of "menomena"? that makes it double-cool.

Thank you so much, dude. Believe me, I'm not going to give up any time soon. I realize he was a fucking genius when it came to music and I'm setting my standards pretty high, but that's good, in a way. It'll keep me motivated to get better. I have been trying a bunch of his songs, no matter how hard they look or sound. Like "Taking a Fall," which is my favorite guitar part of Elliott's at the moment. Picking is a bit intense at the moment, though so I try not to get frustrated.

I have been trying to barre with the side of my finger, but the B string always seems to be muted because my finger's not strong enough yet.

and, yes. That's why it's my "name." I saw it in the liner notes and I wanted a new name haha

Hi! I don't update my journal anymore, but I love Sondre Lerche, Beirut, Jens Lekman, (of course) Rufus and Shugo Tokumaru. You have great taste!

:D Thanks! I honestly consider that the greatest compliment anyone can give me. I take my music very seriously.
