Richard Albert Henderson

It's interesting how he can play the bluesy stuff effortlessly but XTC's music has no relevance to any of that at all.

There's a great clip in the 'This Is Pop' documentary where Dave Gregory plays a typical Chuck Berry lead line as an example of something that would make Partridge howl in pain. IF applied to an XTC song ;)

Masauko

OK so its not just me...all the songwriters like to put the third in the bass. The F# under D is a magic chord...

Austin Lucas

@Brett Tennyson Andy talks in Flats, instead of Sharps. Aren't the both correct, though, just depending either on preference or how you were taught? I prefer calling them Sharp, though.

Brett Tennyson

Masauko him incorrectly saying it is a G flat made me laugh.

Pretty wild to see Andy shred like that. The man can PLAY!

Winston Guitar

he is the most fun and down-to-earth, interesting and sharing person. imagine, a personal guitar lesson from Andy Partridge . . . and here we go:

Shoegaze forever

@the hydronator XTC were considered quirky and unfashionable. Quirky because their music was full of clever musical surprises, and unfashionable because they were pioneers not followers.

the hydronator

xtc were truly ingenius as a band no two albums are the same, they were and will always be some of the best pop musicians who ever lived and its criminal how little recognition they get cos they didn't just do mainstream 80s pop.

Winston Guitar

Dave is like that too . . . very personable, sharing his knowledge with us, etc.
