elliott smith

it seems i relate a lot of things to music. IF's topic is tango but i kept thinking of waltz #2 - one of my favourite songs. i can't really think of many songs that actually employ a waltz tempo these days. either way he seemed to dance a fine line between many elements over his life time but his talent was pretty undeniable. i'm not the best of guitar players but his ability was pretty crazy - try playing angeles. elliott's music could probably be described as sombre in general but i suppose that depends on how you're looking at it. if you haven't heard of him, you probably heard his stuff if you checked out good will hunting. anyway, i say his stuff is worth the listen. while you're at it, go listen to between the bars and pitseleh. go. elliott smith in moleskine, 8x10"

  1. Nice tribute. There is something very enjoyable about doing fan art about musicians...just another dimension of understanding their work, perhaps.
