Anyone know what mode or scale she is using?
I'm a big fan of the singletone scale.
She's playing the F mode.
im almost certain those cheers are dubbed in from a very different event. the crowd that is visible seems to have a very different reaction.
I guess that would put her on par with KISS except she is wearing less makeup and does not need to blow things up to get a reaction.
Not sure if you're being serious, but I don't think this is the case. The people in the front are going pretty nuts as this is one of her old and famous songs. That song always gets a big reaction at her shows.
Friggin' love PJ Harvey. She's the very definition of "weird hot".
I liked that.
I used to be a big PJ Harvey fan back in the early 90s (her first two CD's were crazy good IMO, for that time period). This is the kind of music that is only appreciated on a visceral, basic instinct kind of level (this definitely isn't targeted for the crowd that only appreciates musical gymnastics). That said, the video linked in the original post is not the best representation of PJH....the original version of this song built up into a punkish crescendo of distorted guitar with driving drums/bass, and that is sorely missing in the video linked above. I saw PJH at the Whiskey in LA in 1992/93, and she brought the house down! Can't say that I'm a fan of her recent stuff though...
I GET PJ Harvey - at least the earlier stuff.. This isn't a good introduction to her
But the cool stuff IS definitely cool - and kinda sexy - and kinda spooky
"Little fish. big fish. Swimming in the water.
Come back here, man. gimme my daughter." - PJ Harvey
She can definitely stroke with the best of them.
Let's see... Typical A minor to F major progression...
I guess if she were Jimi singing "All Along The Watchtower" over the same chords it would be more acceptable to guitar nerds.
That whole album is great. I dug the stripped back performance in the OP too.
