I don't know if you get that tingly/odd/transcedent feeling from hearing certain sounds (and more specifically for the purposes of this thread: from music). I do, somewhat rarely, though increasingly more and more. If you're wondering what the heck I am talking about, I imagine some musicians who contort their face feel the same thing, not being merely "into it," but feeling something much rarer and more enjoyable.
Anyway, so I've noticed over the last few months, as I've watched Youtube guitar covers of songs, that maybe one particular player will hit a note that sets me off (great feels) that doesn't happen with anyone else, including the original artist. For example the two bends at about 2:45-2:48 in this video
, which gets a response out of me that the other dozen versions I've heard doesn't. So my questions--especially for those who know what I'm speaking of from personal experience--are along the lines of:
- Do you find that other people don't get triggered by the same thing? For example, maybe no one else you know ever has the same response to the sound, or perhaps they do but when it is a very slightly different sound?
- A quick look on the internetz seemed to bring up a lot of new-agey sites on this. Anyone know of scientific experiments involving this, or human pleasuable response to sound generally? (I guess the 'sound therapy' psychology people have pursued this...?)
- How often do you experience this?
- Do you get similar responses from other things, or just music?
- Do you respond in this way to individual notes, chords, licks/riffs, general meshing of sounds, vocals, rhythms, or other?
