Where's the 1
« on: December 15, 2017, 10:10:41 AM »
Here is a fun game. Songs that when you first heard them you were sure you know where the 1 was, and then realized it's not.

I'll start.









A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

When I still had classical guitar lessons I was into instrumental shredder albums.  :o
I found this tune by Tony Macalpine quite enigmatic. Couldn't figure out where the one was.
Skip to 1:42 to hear the part.

Not heard of this...? Could someone explain...?
Staring at the event horizon is a dirty job, but someone has to do it...

Hard for me to do because I've heard these songs so often that I by now simply know where the "1" is. And when I first heard them, I didn't bother where the "1" was.  :mrgreen:
