Musicians Take on ROTD


What do musicians think of ROTD? I play guitar and tend to measure how much I like an album by my motivation to start learning some of the songs. ROTD is the first DP release in a long time that has me wanting to learn some of the riffs and leads. I really like the riff for Dont Let Go and the middle eastern? sounding bit from ROTD. Gotta go try it out now.

I play bass guitar and sing.

I love vocalizing with Gillan and the whole band are playing really well together. Warts and all, it's still a solid and entertaining album from start to finish.

Well as a guitar player I also judge how well an album grabs me by exactly the same impulse as ffitz i.e. trying to learn and play along with the album. Done it countless times over the years with DP, Rainbow, Maiden, Lizzy. And there's nothing on ROTD that makes me want to do that. Quite frankly, the music and the guitar playing on this album bores the hell outta me.

Re: Musicians Take on ROTD


As a musician of more formal roots, I was struck sonically that this was the most Purplish album since Purpendicular, and possibly more so.

I was also struck with the notion that if they can get in the studio again before too long, the next one will be even better.

Please please PLEASE let them be more adventurous live.....

Re: Musicians Take on ROTD


Just curious CL, have you found any of the Morse era stuff interesting enough to have a go at it? The only one I really wanted to learn was SIFLS until ROTD anyway.

Speaking as an excellent air guitarist, I love to play along to WM, ROTD, DLG, B2B, and the MTV solo in particular. emoticon

As for my air drumming, KTG is my choice.

Yeah, I've practiced a few tracks off both _|_ and )))'s and quite enjoyed myself. Ted The Mechanic sounded completely different when I played it because it was played straight...without those finger picks. SIFLS was interesting to play, again it sounded totally different. Because my style veers very close to that of Blackmore's it certainly puts a different slant on it. The only one off Abandon I played was Bludsucker, the rest didn't do it. From ))))'s I played Walk On, House Of Pain, Sun Goes Down and Silver Tongue.

The only song of Morse-era DP I've ever played is Doing It Tonight. A fun-to-strum thing!

I still practise SOTW every night before bedtime, but I can't get the hang of it...

Re: Musicians Take on ROTD


I still love playing SOTW emoticon

I have a little trick that sounds pretty good. Instead of plucking the strings ala Ritchie, I use a pick to hit the D srring and my middle finger, sort of resting against the first finger, to hit the G. Both notes sound at the same time and it seems a little less staccato than the plucking. Oh well I like it anyway.
