  1. What time does show start at Anaheim HOB??

    With doors at 7 I would guess the show is scheduled to start at 8 but will have first dance about 8:20....just my estimates...nothing for sure.
  2. Dead and co has lost their mind

    maybe it can provide a magic carpet ride...
  3. Emotional support animals

    I agree that "emotional support " is not a legitimate reason. An important part of correctly taking care of a dog is taking them to an appropriate location as well as cleaning up after them. And having a dog in the crowd in front of the stage is totally wrong. The dogs should remain at their campground. And Rude, wasn't your name "RudeDOG" before you changed it a couple months ago. Maybe your girlfriend, bless her heart, might have to leave you back at home. Peace and Love, Doc
  4. Emotional support animals

    I disagree. Nothing wrong with dogs at Jubilee as long as they are taken care of correctly and the dog is a friendly one. Peace and Love, Doc

  6. Oteill and friends free stream now

  7. jubilee tickets

    That corner of the paths is Chicago Mike's area...always good times around that good man. Peace and Love, Doc
  8. Oteill and friends free stream now

    Thanks for the reminder, Rude. That was a good show tonight. I suspect that those that missed it live can find it on youtube latter. Peace and Love, Doc
  9. jubilee tickets

    I drive up from the Southlands the day before and spend the night in the car..get up early and get in line for the mid day opening of the gates.
  10. jubilee tickets

    Yes, I do like the late night bluegrass. The crowd has thinned out...more room to dance...still many good friends that you know from the after midnight crew...
  11. jubilee tickets

    I think I'll try VIP this year. I'm getting too old to climb that hill back to the car camp at three am.
  12. 12/29/2017, Electric Factory

    Wow! Forty years ago last night. Could that be a hint of another Winterland tomorrow night? ...."The Music Never Stopped ;Tennessee Jed ;Funiculi Funicula ....." Peace, and Love to All on the Road for New Years, Doc
  13. "Hi" from a new member

    Good to have you here, Oak and Darkstar12. Oak, You being out in the middle of Maine must have you starved for live DSO music...and with two little ones it's probably difficult to hit the road for a couple days. Maybe conversation with friends here in the forum can carry you through the cold days. Peace and Love, Doc
  14. Diminished Chords

    Diminished chords are chords that you never use as anything other than a passing chord. On the guitar they sound very dissonant and unstable by themselves, almost unusable. But when placed between the right chords, they make great transitions. Generally speaking, diminished chords have a jazzy flavor to them, and they appear in styles that emphasize voice leading and dominant functions. There are three types of diminished chords: Diminished triads, half diminished, and diminished 7th, which is also called a fully diminished chord. The diminished triad is what naturally occurs on the 7th degree of the major scale. It’s 1-f3-f5. That’s a root, minor 3rd, and flat (or diminished) 5th, three minor 3rds in a row. You can also call this minorf5. In the key of G, the 7th triad is Fs-A-C. That’s Fsdim (Fs”) or Fsmf5 ….I’m back to being totally confused
  15. Diminished Chords

    For those of us like me who have no knowledge of music theory and don’t even know which side of the string to pluck……quoted from Wiki…. “…a diminished triad also known as the minor flatted fifth (m♭5), is a triad consisting of two minor thirds above the root— if built on C, a diminished triad would have a C, an E♭ and a G♭. It resembles a minor triad with a lowered (flattened) fifth. It can be represented by the integer notation {0, 3, 6}. Diminished triad on C iio6 in C minor first inversion Do chord. Comparison, in cents, of diminished triad tunings In the common practice period, the diminished triad is considered dissonant, or unstable, because the dissonant diminished fifth symmetricallydivides the octave. The lack of tonal centre or stability, possession of a leading-tone, and the dominant function give the chord drive. And now I’m even more in the dark. I confess that in the second grade of elementary school we had a rhythm band using sticks and such. The teacher took the triangle away from me and I’ve been hurt ever since. Peace and Love, Doc
