My first rock lessons
Listening to rock records, and getting magnetized by them, were my very first rock lessons. They were even the most important lessons I have ever learned – they inspired me to free my soul and create my own music.
“You can be anything you want to be
Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be
Be free with your tempo, be free be free
Surrender your ego – be free, be free to yourself” (Queen – Innuendo)
Sharing some of the music that had magnetized me a lot before I picked up the guitar. They now reminded me of why I wanted to learn music in the first place: to write great songs!
Soon after I started learning the guitar, however, my musical taste changed because I was once again magnetized, but in a different direction.
To be continued in the next part.
Trying my best to keep the guitar in position while tapping!
Tri-Accident’s coming gig on 6 June, come and join us!
Have you ever experienced something so inspiring that it makes you feel like… Ok now I know what I have to do in my life, that’s what I WANT TO BE. Its like the cells and molecules in my body have been magnetized and polarized so that they all aligned in the same direction by the power of the inspiration.
I wrote the tune “magnetized” to describe these fascinating experiences happened to me. It then became the debut song for my band, Tri-Accident. It’s not only a great rocker to start a gig , but also a meaningful song to pay tribute to those inspirations that hit us at the beginning of our musical journey….without them we wouldn’t have started playing guitars and drums etc and joined a band! The chorus goes like this “Something in you magnetized me, calling my name inside me, a little electron stream of your love will charge me up and spin me round”.
I believe our musical journey all began in that way , and I hope someday we can magnetize others too!
What is your experience of getting magnetized by something or someone?
The photo shows some of my cassettes which I have kept since early 90s. It reminds me of my “magnetized experiences” in that period. I will share more about them next time.
