The Economy – We Will Rock You !!! Micro Moment #11


Dinosaurs - economy

Origin unknown – please tell us

This, to me, is a very profound comment, on the way our leaders reacted to the current terrible threat to humanity.

Some years ago, at election time, I put together a campaign called “Bollocks to the Economy”. Some people thought I was being frivolous. But this is exactly what I had in mind. It would be great if, at the next elections in all countries, we all thought about this, and voted according to our priorities. What matters most – the welfare of all creatures on Planet Earth ? Or – Money ? They say we all get the leaders we deserve. Somebody please tell me who to credit for this work.

We WILL Rock You !!! – again – given half a chance !!! Micro Moment #11.

This is the riff I get asked about most often. It gets that strange ‘clang’ to it because I’m playing a high ‘A major’ chord as a ‘bar’ on strings 2, 3 and 4, way up at the octave position, but the A-string is not fretted – it’s left behind at the bottom sounding a low open ‘A’. So you get that ‘interference’ between the harmonics of the component notes. Especially with the amp turned up into distortion, as here. I’m not hitting the bottom ‘E’ at all. When we first recorded this, I was determined to break all the rules. Including putting the solo at the end of the song instead of somewhere in the middle ! And having no drums !!! Funny – ironically it became a drum favourite – which makes me very happy ! But the stamps and claps became a trade-mark. Here you can hear the guitar with NOTHING else !!!
