I need to know how to enlarge my brain..
so i can fit more than three songs at one time in it..
as soon as i learn a new song
a older one gets pushed out ,,,
Interesting article, thank you for sharing.
When the glass is full, adding another drop of water only leads to another drop spilling out. No sense fighting it. Frustrating as it is, I did years ago. Cheers, Barrie.
"...the corpus callosum, a massive bundle of nerve fibers connecting the two sides of the brain, is larger in musicians."
I used to flex mine trying to attract girls. "Wow", they'd utter under their breath, "I love a guy with a big corpus callosum!"
Science has shown that musical training can change brain structure and function for the better. It can also improve long-term memory and lead to better brain development for those who start at a young age.
The article said: "As people get older, for example, we know their reaction times get slower," said Landry. "So if we know that playing a musical instrument increases reaction times, then maybe playing an instrument will be helpful for them."
I think I'd rather decrease my reaction times.
Your older, wiser, brain understands this truth: You do not need more than three songs.
Okay, four if you count "Happy Birthday."
And then, of course, there are all those one hit wonders. Do they know others and just keep them a secret?
Did Bobby Day know more than "Rockin' Robin"?
Did Bobby Pickett know more than "Monster Mash"?
Did the Knickerbockers know more than "Lies"?
The Safaris more than "Wipe Out"?
The Tokens "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"?
Three? You, sir, are a champion!
A few of the horn players I gig with tell me there really are only three songs...... all of the others are built around the first three. But my older, wiser brain can't remember when I started to forget this stuff. If that's the case, the first three songs were all in Bb.
@duceditor Hey Don weren't all of Gary Puckett's hits in Bb?
I do not know. But Bb was common in many groups when sax was the main lead instrument and guitar secondary. Only after guitar took that position did the key os A, E and G become as common as they later did.
Yes, it used to be the sax players and brass players up front.... Gary Puckett and The Union Gap always had a horn section arrangement... so now I've got to go back and hear them all! I think this might quality for 'only three songs'.
So on that note how do you stop the horn section? Take the sheet music away. How do you stop the guitar player? Give him the sheet music!
