    Hmmm. Definately an appreciator of music, but no expert on it. If we were sitting in the same room, and I played for you all of my favorite music, perhaps you could detect a theme. But I cannot. I just like music that enhances my mood, whether it's happy, sad, outrageous, or horny...

    Bass, all the way. That and STRONG percussion. I'm not talking some random crappy drum solo thrown in to make the drummer feel better, I mean PERCUSSION that carries it's own. Nothing puts a smile on my face faster than listening to Bonzo's Montreaux. Ahhh yes, where are those headphones...

    Oh, yeah, Micro, BASS! I love it. Treble seems to grate on my ears and head, doncha know? Sounds kind of like an out of tune piano!
    Sometimes, some folks sing so low, you've got to give'em a little dose of treble, so you can make out their words.
    Any time I am driving a vehicle, that is one of the first things I do-set the radio to what sounds good to me, because I have the radio on almost all of the time I am driving. I got hooked on radio when I got a little white transistor for my 13th birthday. Can hardly go anywhere without it!

    This woman likes an equal balance of bass/treble/harmony. I have perfect pitch and a good ear for music, so I need to be able to hear it all!

    We have a baritone bass that sings in our choir. I could just listen to him talk all day. I think his voice is deeper than Barry White's, if that is possible. Something about men with super deep voices just makes your panties fly off. OOPS! I meant, their voices are really sexy... ahem! :imbar

    Well, now, that depends on the music and what we are trying to say with it. The proper balance will differ for different types of music. Different music for different moods.

    I love all aspects of music. However. . .

    When I'm listening to jazz or a well composed pop tune, my ears go towards the bass. I had two different roomates, during my Berklee College of Music days, who were electric bass players. I'd listen to them practice and practice and practice . . . and I'd listen to the music that my roomies listened to. . . lots of great bassists playing lots of cool stuff. . . .

    Just grew a real strong appreciation towards good bass playing. (Note: I'm a keyboardist).

    Cool thread, Micro!

    Wow...I'd hate to be sitting in the front row of that concert!!LOL!!! But seriously, I love listening to a great bass player; it takes a lot of talent, and security to do that...most people want to be lead/in front.

    I must agree. With most modern music, I prefer to have the bass turned up a bit, but if you listen to Baroque (which happens to be my favorite) with the bass turned up, it sounds weird.

    Micro...just saw your new signature, and in keeping with all these musical themes on the boards, may I suggest you listen to Ministry's cover of "Lay Lady Lay". It may just knock your micro socks off, and if it doesn't, you always have me to blame.

    Indeed.
