I really like Open D (DADF#AD), but I like Dm too (DADFAD)...either with a capo and go to Eb it's SRV (though I often tune that cheapy ibby Ash got me that I put duncans in to Eb)...that line of tunings is really fun for me to riff on, I get why SRV liked it (also it seems Alvin Lee might be a fan of open D as well)...I did the song on the Katrina CD we did in Dm, that was all clean, not OD or fuzz...from my dad's poem...he supplied the emotional influence, I just made a dads day present of it...it was still too heavy for my mom, it had drums :hihi:

odd goalpost for happiness. EG: signature of one flat is F major or D minor, two different keys and one supposes moods.
the latter of which is known to be the saddest key.

anyway apparently I'm too old for this stuff

You might want to look into a poet called Schubart, a contemporary of Beethoven, who wrote up this whole list of keys and their special qualities, and moods and mystical aspects.
I believe the tunings that they used back then were different, so the sounds and qualities of the keys that Schubart wrote about might also be different from what we normally hear today.

that's true, actually, the things that aren't C major oriented tend to be rather more pungent.
But here's a lot of poetic license. Amusing, but quaint.

And what about rhythm? Dm Samba is not like Dm Russian waltz.

the age limit strikes me as funny in context (an inchoate af notion). It's like at age 61 it dawns on one that maybe D minor is NOT the saddest key...
youve seen some shit by the time you are 61, you realise all keys are sad, everything is sad. :cry:
and im not even 50 :cry:
Good God you guys. I feel the same as you and I am 40. Seriously, wtf is going on with this "existence" thing.
