Because the question of his relationship to music "theory" has never been satisfactorily answered. "I play by ear". "I don't even know the names of notes or chords". Those seem like a diversion or a way of not wanting to explain it, for whatever reason. Correct me if I'm wrong. I want to know. Taken at face value , playing by ear, being able to compose, arrange, improvise at such a high level says "savant" to me. Not that savants are better or magical or something like that, just that they can operate in ways that regular people don't. "It's just hard work" is another one. Well, yeah, but that doesn't fully cover it, so I'm still left wondering. Someone told me that maybe there's some secret system from the Rosicrucians, and if that really is what's going on, it would explain a lot, but if that was the case, it would remain secret, so I'm left wondering. Someone else told me "Bill knows a lot about music" after I'd told them that Bill said that Bill doesn't know any music theory (and eschews it!). I said yeah, he obviously does know a lot (and I continued to wonder). So there it is ,the wonder of the moment😆

Just out of idle curiosity, because Albert's Intestines wanted to know if I'd like to chat with Bing's Chat GTP 4 about David Bowie, I decided to chat with Bing's Chat GTP 4 about David Bowie. I asked "What did David Bowie say about Bill Nelson or Be Bop Deluxe ?". The Great Assimilator replied: "According to my web search results, here are some things that David Bowie said or implied about them: • He admired Bill Nelson’s guitar playing and songwriting skills, and invited him to collaborate on his 1977 album Low. However, Nelson declined the offer, saying he wanted to pursue his own musical vision1.(https://www.loudersound.com/features/why-i-ziggy-stardust-by-be-bop-deluxes-bill-nelson) • He was aware of Be Bop Deluxe’s glam rock image and music, but he did not consider them as rivals or copycats. He once said, "I don’t mind Be Bop Deluxe. They’ve got their own thing going, and it’s nothing to do with me."2(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Be-Bop_Deluxe) • He was also influenced by Be Bop Deluxe’s experimental sound and production, especially on their albums Futurama and Sunburst Finish. He praised John Leckie, who produced both Be Bop Deluxe and some of Bowie’s albums, as "a genius"3.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axe_Victim) "

Coolest guitar ever, if you ask me. It would be nice to have the talent to play a fretless guitar. I rotted that circuitry out at age 8 when I quit violin and sniffed gasoline fumes .

It's my beater, the Norman B-20 Folk acoustic. NYXL (for good EBow response) mediums, tuned down to CGCFFC. For convenience and familiarity with music theory, I'm treating that tuning like DADGGD , and the two G strings are twinned , wound, because otherwise the intonation is skewed. I've made up masses of chords with this odd tuning, and some tracks will have lots of nice movement, though most will be meandering sonic excursions. The guitar has a soundhole pickup (Baggs) and an undersaddle piezo pickup, both routed to the input on the Pod 2.0. From there I have left and right pedal fx chains ...until the right one goes into the Mooer Ocean machine. Sub octavers, flangers, boosters, and delays, mostly, and an EHX synth. Nothing extravagant or high-end except the Mooer. It's going to be noisy. I have lots in the can, but may not have anything edited out for a while. Be afraid... 😁ps - it's a mess because it's me, and because I'm always moving pedals around and I don't have time to make it pretty.
