    Hi guys! I recently got this custom mandolin from Ken. I figured I would share it since it is quite unique. I call it the thornbush.

    -And yes, it sounds even better than it looks. Blew my...

    Congratulations on your upcoming retirement, Jim. I hope it affords you all the time to do the stuff you haven't been able to get to, musically and everything else.
    Also, good luck on your move back...

    Pretty fun to watch videos of the older guys, masters, et al communicating (verbally) about their music. I like the clip of Charlie Rouse asking Monk, "Well is it C or C#? To which Monk replies,...

    Re: bVII—IV—I (NMC)

    Google "plagal cascade". It's all over the place, and predates the Beatles. This 3-chord version is just the end of it. When I think of the three chord version I first think of The Beatles...

    Re: bVII—IV—I (NMC)

    V/V to V to I would be a "double authentic" cadence, not a "double perfect". I've never heard it called that, though.

    IV/IV to IV to I would only be a double plagal cadence if it is at the end of...

    Re: bVII—IV—I (NMC)

    Correct. And the "bVII - IV - I" is a double plagal cadence.

    Somewhere on the web is an analysis of the Beatles' music and it uses this term.

    Re: bVII—IV—I (NMC)

    "Hey Joe" (copyrighted 1962) takes this progression to an almost absurd extent, two steps further : F - C - G - D - A is how I play it.

    Also in 1962, the original recorded version of "Morning Dew"...

    bVII- IV- I has been around for a long time in folk songs and classical music.. The Beatles didn't invent it. "Love Please Come Home" used it in a 1957 recording.

    Theory-wise, the bVII is a...

    I - bVII- IV in Gloria (Them)- 1964. The I - bVII riff in tunes like My Generation (Who). And probably many others.

    The chart is perfectly sensible and readable. I would notate it exactly as you did.

    Ab minor to G major is a cool move and not illegal.
