Episode 367 – The Musical Theory Behind Poutine Rapees
Play • 52 min

(2:32) SeanGeek’s kids have started making their own comic books! What are there comics about? We talk about Sean’s own stash of his own home-made comics he made as a kid and how he diverged his love of comics into a love of story-writing. We dip back into the comic book company he was part of as a kid with some friends. (10:20) How are the kids doing with their piano lessons and how has that impacted our own learnings as musicians ourselves. We slip into our beginnings into music, learning theory and tablature.

(12:54) We talk about learning music through flexible records that were inserted into music magazines like Guitar Player (and also included in Mad Magazine issues). We talk drum and guitar theory and reading music, time signatures, Dragon Studios, the “sloppy” playing style of Jimmy Page and Eddie Van Halen and how important the drummer is to that kind of player.

(25:20) We pull from the list to talk wineskins, their origins and if they are still being used, the god Bacchus, the band Bacchus, haggis and some bad accents, pubadelic bands.

(31:25) What is a poutine and is it related to a Maritime poutine (rapees)? What is blood sausage? What is Warm and Fuzzy and why does it involve the police? (We share a story about our old band Salty Bear.)

(43:59) Recommendations: Bulk Barn finds and The Realistic Rock Drum Method by Carmine Appice.
