Hiaku is just bad
It doesn’t make a good poem
It’s not an art form
…………………………………………….

It reminds me of being in Atlanta 20 years ago staring at an ungodly mess of twisted metal at an exhibit.

I looked over at my friend who’d suggested we attend the exhibit and he saw my confused look.

He said “this is part of the DBA program.”

I asked “DBA?”

He answered “Dis Be Art!”

Bob,

Sometime I can't figure out where you're coming from. I get that you don't like haiku, okay? But you are protesting WAY too much here. You have gone a tremendous distance out of your way to protest--what? I'm not sure.

Saying that rules stifle creativity is like saying that uniforms stifle individuality, which anyone who has worn a uniform knows is not true. For a bluegrass musician to say that "he doesn't like rules" is a breathtaking statement of self unawareness--which I know isn't true, so I am really mystified. Unless you are playing completely arrhythmic, atonal noise (which could only arguably be called music) you live by musical rules. Not sure about the rest of your life.

You want rules? I was just going for syllabic structure. Here's Wikipedia's take on the history and structure of haiku. So many rules you wouldn't believe. All you have demonstrated is that you don't understand poetry in the much larger sense. To say that haiku is not an art form is not only laughable, it is a denial of more than a millennium of Japanese art and culture.

For everybody else, the jazz haiku earlier was brilliant. I'm going to try to live up to that.

R.

Richard,

I have obviously offended you, and for that I'm truly sorry. That defintely wasn't my intention.

I just don't understand the appeal of haiku. I read several examples and I didn't see any flow, just strict adherence to form and structure.

Quote:

All you have demonstrated is that you don't understand poetry in the much larger sense.




I would have to disagree with that since haiku is such a small percentage of "poetry" that you'd have to start with a decimal point and add a few zeros before actually calculating a numeric value.

I enjoy poetry, but I like the more classical forms.

As a songwriter, I've written tons of songs. Some are pretty good, others, ... not so much. Songs are nothing more than poetry over a musical progression.

Early on in the thread:

Quote:

I don’t understand the appeal, but that’s okay.

If you like it, go for it.




I started playing and singing long before I knew ANYTHING about music theory. I only knew what I thought sounded good. I learned basic music theory later.

As far as "rules" in music goes, music theory isn't a list of "rules" on what you have to do, it's an EXPLANATION of why certain things sound good and other things don't.

That's the basis for this earlier statement:

Quote:

If I’d been given a list of “rules” about writing a song, then I’d never have written my first one. Ditto for playing an instrument.




As far as what is an "art form", that's up to the person viewing or listening to what is being put forward as "art'. To some folks, art is when someone p*sses in a fruit jar, places an inverted crucifix in the jar, puts a lid on it and then gives it some absurd name. I reserve the right to declare "that's not art" or to say it sucks.

You're obviously a fan of haiku. That's fine. Enjoy it.

My comments were given in the same context where I'd tell a friend who is a metalcore fan that his music "sucked" and he'd tell me that bluegrass is "redneck bullsh*t". Then we'd both laugh and take turns on picking the next song.

Bob, for the small percentage you might be wrong. Might be. I you count the Japanese that is. Just don't forget about them, which happened once big time. Just sayin.

Bob, I'm not offended, just mystified by the apparent tone. Everything you said in response is true.

E-text is a "cold" medium that dangerously omits many nuances. (I lost a job once because of an e-mail that was intended as minor humor but was blown way out of proportion.) I accept the spirit in which you say it was offered and the suggestion that we move on.

That may be the case here from my end. A forum member once posted a Van Halen clip that was atrocious and talked about how great it was. Another member posted something else equally bad and also raved about it.

I jumped in and was incredulous at why they thought the clips were so good. They, (and a few others), posted and told me I’d been “punked”. The clips by the bands were intentionally AWFUL recordings and the bands did that on purpose.

When you posted the haiku thread, I didn’t realize you were so invested in it. I thought maybe you’d ran across it and just posted it to see what other people thought about it.

If you’d said “I’m a HUGE haiku fan and I want to see if any other members are”, I’d probably left it alone. Or just said “It’s not my cup of tea”.

I posted a dubstep video even though I’m not a dubstep fan. I just liked that video and was impressed by the girls talent. It doesn’t mean I’ll be buying any dubstep CD’s, nor would I be offended by someone saying dubstep sucks. I just liked that one artist’s video.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

And JC, … there will be NO man kisses here! As Don Gaynor said in the dubstep thread, I'm "hooked on the cute chickenlettes".

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
