Two Sundays in a row, we've spun up sets of songs in 6/8 time. 6/8 is a time signature, kind of like a waltz, but better. Some of your favorite songs are in 6/8, and you don't even know it. Does a song make you feel a little wistful but also a bit like a badass? That might be 6/8. Does a song make you want to nod your head while weighing life's heavier decisions? That's 6/8. Some artists just thrive in 6/8. Etta James. Neko Case. Most of the Soundgarden catalog.
So if you missed your music lessons two weeks in a row, now's a good time to catch up.
Missionary Ridge. A piece of geography near Chattanooga, Tennessee. Site of the Battle of Missionary Ridge. Covered in switchback roads, kudzu, and shadows.
