I disagree...I think the KJV is very accurate...maybe not dead center, but close enough that in it I (and many others) have found and continue to see the Orthodox Church within its pages.  It is easy to get caught in tenses and senses creating unnecessary agitation within our minds over matters which are far above most of our reasoning skills.. 

In my opinion, it is more critical that we be attending and assimilating the services of the Orthodox Church wherein we receive the correct meaning in her poetic prophetic utterances then be concerned with the school of scribes.  NO TRANSLATION can be authoritative simply because it has been decreed such...certainly a Bishop or synod might instruct which translation to use in services and which to read for own edification...but TIME is the Incubator for these kind of matters and the Consent of the Church in her Churches is the catalyst for this authority. 

John

Courteous is my name,
and I have always aimed to live up to it.
Grace is also my name,
but when things go wrong
its Courteous whom I blame;
but its Grace who sees me through it.

St Ignatius Brianchaninov - On The Prayer of Jesus: Chapter 4, Power to expel Demons


http://www.philokalia.org/on_the_prayer_of_jesus.htm


He's absolutely right. Best believe.

I know for a fact that the demons inhabit our bodies, they have inhabited my own vessel.

Its not unreasonable to say that they are in some of you too.

I have the most powerful ones though.

The passions are demons, St Ignatius says.

They flee at the invocation of the name of Jesus.

It burns them, it burns them good, if you practice the prayer good.

100. Like a bee one should extract from each of the virtues what is most profitable. In this way, by taking a small amount from all of them, one builds up from the practice of the virtues a great honeycomb overflowing with the soul-delighting honey of wisdom.

Power chords are wonderful, and you can actually do a lot with them... sliding the bass not up a fret (a string) can give you a bit of a depressive feel, while sliding down the higher note (the D string) can give a sense of motion.

Great article, but I have only one gripe.  The genius of "Smoke on the Water" isn't the riff itself, but how it's played.  Blackmore uses the 4th instead the 5th in what is a fairly basic blues interval (I-IV-V); the jazz number he supposedly stole it from is using 7ths.  He also doesn't play it with a pick but with his fingers, a choice which really dirties up that sound and makes it memorable.

They also kind of hint that Jon Lord had something to do with it, when, by all accounts, it was just something Blackmore was fiddling around with at the end of their recording @ Montreaux.  They needed another song and BAM! there it was. 

Anyone who is into music (or more concrete art, for that matter) knows that Picasso's dictum of "Good artists borrow, great artists steal!" has always been in full effect.  :)

I believe any guitar teacher who has a student obviously wanting to play rock songs and does not teach the power chord as the first lesson is horribly negligent and responsible with said student getting fed up with lessons after a few months.  Knowing all those open chords is well and good, but the power chord frees creative students to start writing songs now.  

To this day I can't believe how many instructional books I had to read to find that one little magic positioning which allowed me to put music to all those lyrics I had written down.


They're not the only ones my friend...

You ask me, 4 chords is one chord too many :P

But, on that note- I-V-VI-IV is every pop song from the 90s.  There's something wrong with a progression that managed to find it's way through Green Day, Bush, AND Matchbox 20

True, and that reality is proof positive of the fallacies of any argument defending 'intellectual property'.  The chance to take something and improve upon it is taken away, though admittedly, things like a whole slew of cheap pop-music rip-offs or a painfully awful metalcore cover hack job of a classic metal song bring with them the temptation to crack down on some things very hard.  Instead of unjust I.P. laws to deal with the latter case, I suggest we revive blasphemy laws.

Rimsky-Korsakov's Russian Easter Festival Overture


For someone like myself with an orchestral background it's amazing how a piece of music I loved for years before becoming Orthodox has taken on such a new meaning. If you're not familiar with it I highly recommend you check it out.

Indeed!  One of my favorite orchestral works.  The fact that it has a bad-**** trombone part gives the work an added touch, in the opinion of this trombonist. ;D
