Oh, nevermind

This is the central scrutinizer...joe has just worked himself into an imaginary frenzy during the fade- out of his imaginary song...he begins to feel depressed now. he knows the end is near. he realized at last that imaginary guitar notes and imaginary vocals exist only in the imagination of the imaginer...

"He was a very nice boy. He used to cut my grass." It was Zappa humor like this that first caught my ear as a young teenager listening to Freak Out and the like. Then we really listened and discovered the wonderful, talented world of Frank Zappa. How fitting that while listening to Joe's Garage the other night the "cut the grass" segment caught the ear of my fourteen year old son who thought it hilarious. A few minutes later I noticed him intently listening to the classic "Watermelon In Easter Hay." Like Father, like Son.

That is truly one the most beautiful songs ever written. I'm kinda embarrassed.....I remember the first time I heard it was during the film version of Friday Night Lights and for some reason I just missed it during my FZ days. It absolutely blew me away and I just couldn't believe it when I found out it was a Zappa tune. What incredible range that guy had.

Watermelon in Easter Hay is a great track, no doubt.

My personal favorite guitar track of Frank's is Treacherous Cretins, from the first volume of Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar.

Fans of Frank's composition and guitar playing should check out Frank Zappa Plays the Music of Frank Zappa, a posthumous "tribute" put together by Dweezil that features two versions each of what his dad thought to be his signature tunes.

Watermelon in Easter Hay is as good as it gets, my favorite FZ instrumental.

Amazing piece of work.
