The average speed is 100 BPM, but the band gets a wide range, around 92-103 beats per minute.

“The Steve Miller Band passed me by, but I heard great things about those guys,” noted the Rock, Dwayne Johnson.

Adele once noted, “No, they’ll never influenced me *musically* – but I studied Steve’s boldness, his determination to do his thing – and I take inspiration from such great people. You can see, too, Steve was dressing his way, ahead of his time – and it was not what everyone wanted to see him wear. I get that a lot! Honestly, it used to bother me, now I rather revel in the idea of it.”

North Korean Kim asked President Trump for this CD. If we can make this guy lisen to a song instead of launching Nukes at us. Why not. If it changes his heart the world lives in peace for another Day. 🚀💂

declassified tempo- “One Sweet World” / Dave Matthews Band / live at night. Piedmont Park iTunes concert video version

I’m kinda just going on. It happened, but you always post with backups for that very reason, which is why I don’t have bitterness for internet companies.

A lot of people tried to get a lot of things too fast. So on WordPress there are many many and still many more left wondering whether to republish material that the accidental overwhelming of WordPress when it took on 30% of internet and a merger with Google while working with thousands of theme software writers.

Well, you get the point – or it happened to you!

Anyone have ideas on it?

Does 110 3/5 bpm have a ‘feel’? “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” | Deep Blue Something | declassified harmonic tempo map –

Breakfast At Tiffany’s is a song by Deep Blue Something.

After not hearing the song for over ten years how fresh it sounded. I don’t personally dance, except for my family as a joke that I can’t dance (just as you!).

What is music all about though? It is, in my opinion, sound with the ability ally, to make people dance. Sometime literally, as basic dance. If you are playing, and people are natural rocking their babies in their chairs. In a broader and more abstract way, music has to make your brain dance. As Lennon and McCartney wrote in “Lady Madonna”-

Lady Madonna,
Children at your bed,
Listen to the music playing in your head.”

As Lennon and McCartney wrote in “Lady Madonna”-

Lady Madonna,
Children at your bed,
Listen to the music playing in your head.”

This is my conclusion based on a great question I received from a young 20-something outside my NYC drum studio, where the hallway sounds like 5 drummers all playing their own thing which is generally awfully annoying. Even where you can hear the one player that may have the loudest or strongest playing plays [well], her question: “How do you guys know if you’re any good?”

I responded with predictable: “if you get jobs,” “if bands ask you to sit in because often the drummers are the last to be picked,” “if you are no good, on 8th Ave? people will let you know! you can’t even rent a room as it makes the studio sound bad, look bad, harm the reputation.”

I got home and thought – that was a weak, trite answer compared to the answer “you know you are good when you make people dance.” The instrument? Does not matter. Personally, I [earned] my first chance to make it as a musician in New York City, after trying it for one year, giving up, becoming a lawyer, passing the bar, and content as an attorney with what was paid for – in college I would get paid gigs and would often volunteer to play free, back into a hobby. I realized, “wow, I was a huge fish in a small New Jersey community, a big shot in a small upstate New York college. In New York City, the nasty shock in moving into old school Hell’s Kitchen, I was barely the best accompanist/pianist on my floor in my building!

Not until TEN years later, practicing the entire time to try to meet a NYC STANDARD, did I get my enormous break. Waiting in line for the stapler at the New York’s Legal Services, divorce and family law section, at which I was worked. I tapped a song on the table that had the stapler and a line of three people (we did a to of that in the 20th century – line up to use simple machines! The things I was stapling would have been stored on a MSFT/APPLE/DELL/CRUZ hard drive or thumbnail). The type of tapping I was doing on the table was the same type that used to make may dad irritated, heck, made most people irritated. As [Julie] was about to tell me we were in a law environment and to STOP THE NOISE, she asked, “Do you play an instrument? My husband is a music teacher art the John F. Kennedy High School in the Bronx, and his annual budget for the yearly senior show was cut such that, the orchestra could not be hired, and if I played the drums or the keyboards, he was looking for someone.”

I thought, is she serious? 10,000 people have heard me tap on tables similarly – never got any job offers. Nor did I at Legal Services. I auditioned three songs at least three minutes each. I made the cut, land my piano accompaniment went from $0 to $35 in NYC, which, when you are working in litigation is a matter of pure joy. Being an attorney, as not shown on tv or Suits or whatever, means the cases NEVER leave your head. There is always something else to consider, another argument to try, and the worst, there is always more research to do. The saying among lawyers is that the best are those that rely on the best cases, STOP over-researching, and organize and build powerful cases using cases at a higher court level over searching for a case that forts your fact pattern exactly, but of a family court star case from Arizona. In other words, that 60% of attorneys are introverts surprises people, but realize: just to get into the bar one has to spend thousands of hours alone reading the most sophisticated law of the English language.

The biggest reason I landed that job after my audition after not getting anywhere for years? A terrible gig I played on 3rd Avenue, where I played a set with no “oh my god” mistakes, really nothing unplanned at all. But I did not feel the room dancing – though it was a supper club – people were not into it, I heard something wrong with it, couldn’t tell what it was.

After the show, the drummer I went with said, “Dude, you piano players do not realize that you stick your head under that wooden baby grand soundboard and the overtones and harmonies? People are not hearing that at all. They hear you basic playing. You lost the crowd half way through your first song because the FIRST time you miss a be a, the crowd can’t follow, tunes you out. And dude, there is no comeback from that. That’s why that waltz you played at the end was okay, but the rest, you need serious training on a metronome.” That advice was the “cruel to be kind” statement that turned me into an actual musician.

That said, it was the crowd of non-musicians who has the power! I had to learn to play in time (took about 2 1/2 year of playing with a metronome at least 1/2 the time, usually 80%). The pain was not the learning to play on a metronome. The pain was opening up the box, winding it up, and just trying it. I was scared that my flaws would be exposed so badly I’d never play again. Opposite happened: the more I made friends with the metronome the more I could use silence as its own instrument.

That gets to the point: if you are aware than you really get into a great groove with a song that is 110.6 beats per minutes you can use that power by setting up playlists or simple loops with tempos that you know that when you personally are in that zone you feel confident, or you simply dance in your head. That for me is the case with Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I made a playlist for my treadmill, an easier machine for me to exercise on when my head is dancing.

As for YOU? You are always your best DJ! The best playlists? YOURS, with YOUR taste. Knowing the speed is a simple tool that for those of you curious enough to read this far down know is as individually great as glasses fit or shoes or gloves. I am flattered when someone offers me a playlist, but usually I don’t listen to it. Conversely, if someone says, “check out this SONG or these set of SONGS,” individually, that is the opposite! Also the reason you’ll never see a playlist on my sites – it is an insult to ☛you, who were kind enough to read all this👆🏼!

The How Fast Was That And Why Should I Care Series – Kate Bush, “Wuthering Heights” | matherton diagram | median expected probable tempo=940.4 msecs

which shoes fit exactly. Which eyeglasses correct perfectly? That is a personal question for *you*.

If you are like me, or my friend Nick Avenscion of Los Angeles, a slow song in the middle of a playlist is as individual as taste in music itself.

Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights is a song that is a personal favorite of mine, and calms me through the hard part of a simple treadmill walk – around minute 21 through 25. To me, the slow song as a Wuthering Heights illustrates how we can choose our own favorites, just like we can dress ourselves, and know what we like to eat for supper.

INDIGO GIRLS UNCLASSIFIED TEMPO CHART – “I Call On The Resting Soul, Of Galileo, King of Night Vision, King Of Insight”

IN the late 20th century the band called the Indigo Girls wrote a brilliantly fun song about the most horribly brutal situation: Galileo, who’s “head was on the block/His crime?/Was giving up the truth.”

Matherton and me are listening to this as I type. I’m thinking : 25 year old song, better than ever.  Jackie is pushing for a comparison to a live version, both to compare speed and because it’s such a darned good piece of music!

©Newman Tempo Scale By Me, July 1988, copyright Nov 16, 1992. I think it holds up as well now as when I saw it 30 years ago. I did not INVENT it – there is nothing *to be* invented!  Below is a pattern of nature I saw while living as as first year law student. As I’ve written, I was trying to get gigs playing at piano bars during my time in Manhattan and despite on one night playing without mistakes by notes, on some difficult pieces, the feel in the room was unenergized and I did not know why. One night at after a 3rd ave gig, Bruce B, a drummer from the east coast said to  me, “not bad dude. you almost were good with Farmer’s Trust at the end, but I think that’s because it’s a waltz and it didn’t give you time to go into your your own head making up your you  own speed. I don’t know what it is with you piano players you think you can play any speed.  From a drummer’s perspective, I listen to your playing. You seem like other piano players to get off on all the harmonics underneath the piano, this *huge slab of wood*, blurring the harmonics as there are three strings for every note.  That makes anything you play sound interesting harmonically with all the notes playing off each other each other. YOU, dude!  That is not what the audience are hearing though, man. In fact, the *first time* you miss a beat as in instead playing in time, you go into your own and rubato which nobody’s going to follow.” This is getting along the this will be part 1 of genesis of the Newman Tempo Universal Proposed Scale. I’d like to end this part of the the by saying how much I try to convince myself that Bruce was wrong and in and I went into a 6moth-8 month period complete denial about what quite simply came playing for twenty two-year that I could be on time without out a metronome to practice with.
