Roger McGuinn

James Roger McGuinn is an American musician. He is best known for being the frontman of the Byrds, he was inducted into the Roll Hall of Fame for his work with the Byrds. McGuinn was born and raised in Chicago, United States, his parents and Dorothy, were involved in journalism and public relations, during his childhood, they had written a bestseller titled Parents Can't Win. He attended the Latin School of Chicago, he became interested in music after hearing Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel", asked his parents to buy him a guitar.. Around the same time, he was influenced by country artists and/or groups such as Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Gene Vincent, the Everly Brothers. In 1957, he enrolled as a student at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music, where he learned the five-string banjo and continued to improve his guitar skills. After graduation, McGuinn performed solo at various coffeehouses on the folk music circuit where he was hired as a sideman by the Limeliters, the Chad Mitchell Trio, Judy Collins and other folk music artists in the same vein.

He played guitar and sang backup harmonies for Bobby Darin. Soon after, he relocated to the West Coast Los Angeles, where he met the future members of the Byrds. In 1962, after he ended his association with the Chad Mitchell Trio, McGuinn was hired by Darin to be a backup guitarist and harmony singer. About a year and a half after McGuinn began to play guitar and sing with Darin, Darin became ill and retired from singing. Subsequently, Darin opened T. M. Music in New York City's Brill Building, hiring McGuinn as a songwriter for $35 a week. During 1963, just one year before he co-founded the Byrds, McGuinn worked as a studio musician in New York, recording with Judy Collins and Simon & Garfunkel. At the same time, he was hearing about The Beatles, wondering how Beatlemania might affect folk music. By the time Doug Weston gave McGuinn a job at the Troubadour nightclub in Los Angeles, McGuinn had included Beatles' songs in his act, he gave rock style treatments to traditional folk tunes and thereby caught the attention of another folkie Beatle fan, Gene Clark, who joined forces with McGuinn in July 1964.

Together they formed the beginning of. During his time with the Byrds, McGuinn developed two innovative and influential styles of electric guitar playing; the first was "jingle-jangle" – generating ringing arpeggios based on banjo finger picking styles he learned while at the Old Town School of Folk –, influential in the folk rock genre. The second style was a merging of saxophonist John Coltrane's free-jazz atonalities, which hinted at the droning of the sitar – a style of playing, first heard on the Byrds' 1966 single "Eight Miles High", influential in psychedelic rock. While "tracking" the Byrds' first single, "Mr. Tambourine Man", at Columbia studios, McGuinn discovered an important component of his style. "The'Ric' by itself is kind of thuddy," he notes. "It doesn't ring. But if you add a compressor, you get. To be honest, I found this by accident; the engineer, Ray Gerhardt, would run compressors on everything to protect his precious equipment from loud rock and roll. He compressed the heck out of my 12-string, it sounded so great we decided to use two tube compressors in series, go directly into the board.

That's. It's squashed down, but it jumps out from the radio. With compression, I found I could hold a note for three or four seconds, sound more like a wind instrument; this led me to emulate John Coltrane's saxophone on "Eight Miles High". Without compression, I couldn't have sustained the riff's first note.""I practiced eight hours a day on that'Ric,'" he continues, "I worked it. In those days, acoustic 12s had wide necks and thick strings that were spaced pretty far apart, so they were hard to play, but the Rick's slim neck and low action let me explore jazz and blues scales up and down the fretboard, incorporate more hammer-ons and pull-offs into my solos. I translated some of my banjo picking techniques to the 12-string. By combining a flat pick with metal finger picks on my middle and ring fingers, I discovered I could switch from fast single-note runs to banjo rolls and get the best of both worlds."Another sound that McGuinn developed is made by playing a seven string guitar, featuring a doubled G-string.

The C. F. Martin guitar company has released a special edition called the HD7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition, that claims to capture McGuinn's "jingle-jangle" tone which he created with 12 string guitars, while maintaining the ease of playing a 6-string guitar; the Byrds recorded several albums after Mr. Tambourine Man in 1965; the single, "Turn! Turn! Turn!", written by Pete Seeger with the lyrics drawn from Ecclesiastes in the Old Testament, was the Byrds' second Number One success in late 1965. In 1969, McGuinn's solo version of the "Ballad of Easy Rider" appeared in the film Easy Rider, while a full band version was the title track for the album released that year. McGuinn performed a cover of Bob Dylan's "It's Alright, Ma" for the Easy Rider soundtrack. 1970's Untitled album featured a 16-minute version of the Byrds' 1966 hit "Eight Miles High", with all four membe

Anyone Seen the Bridge?

"Anyone Seen the Bridge?" is an instrumental by the Dave Matthews Band played as segue between two songs during a concert. It is an instrumental jam played with scat singing by Dave Matthews. Performances of the tune today are heard between "So Much to Say" and "Too Much," and last around a minute and a half; the tune has been popular during concerts since its debut, has been played live over 400 times. The tune originated from a funky jam performed by the band with guest Mike Doughty from Soul Coughing after "So Much to Say" at a concert on October 3, 1996; the band liked the jam, it was performed the following night with Doughty after "So Much to Say," and lasted seven minutes. When the jam was first played, the band's crew felt it sounded similar to the Led Zeppelin song "The Crunge," which features the lyrics "Has anybody seen the bridge?" so the tune was dubbed "Anyone Seen the Bridge?" by the band's crew and the name stuck. At the band's following show on October 6, the band used the tune as a brief segue between "So Much to Say" and "Too Much," and it was so popular that it is played at concerts between those two songs up to the present day.

On the band's 1998 album Before These Crowded Streets, "Anyone Seen the Bridge?" was teased into the jam at the end of the track, "Pig." In 2000, the band played the tune several times after "So Much to Say," which segued into a "fake" version of "Too Much" lasting for a few seconds, which segued into "Ants Marching." Beginning with the band's summer tour in 2000, the band began to segue the tune into a variety of other songs after performing "So Much to Say." The jam has only opened a show three times, those being July 31, 2004, August 23, 2007, June 29, 2019.
