Call me Crazy! but I liked it. Who da thunk the guy could play guitar and sing.

Wow. I was actually amazed that it wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be.

I hate to say it....but I actually kind of liked the song.

It's hard to watch him, but his voice is better than many people selling hit records these days.

I liked it too. :)

It kind of reminded me of Clapton's My Father's Eyes.

Well, I don't like it, but...

...it's no worse than any of the other dreck on the radio these days.

Color me disappointed in popular music.

Steven Seagal is just adding to the noise.

Downloading as we speak to my ipod (Not) he seems to be going for the elvis las vegas look. Hmm......
Does anyone know any aikido guitar taking techniques....

His singing wasn't bad. Much better than the after seminar, drunken aikidoka, Karaoke nights I've been to! Oy Vey!

Come on! Those Mt. Dew commercials were hilarious! At least he was poking fun at himself.

I only know, fret e nage, well executed it should be really slick and has the added bonus of making a good sound :cool:

I'd bet Eb gaeshi would work well. But you either have to tune the guitar specially or perform the technique in a higher octave. For that reason I favor Am nikkyo. :uch:

You do have to watch for the (C)ounter with the last one, though. :sorry:

(Off to find a dorian joke, now. But I will not resort to mixolydian!) :D

Actually, although I'm not particularly a fan of the blues, it wasn't half bad. His singing is definitely better than his more recent movies.

Here's an interview with Steven Seagal in The Seattle Times discussing his blues guitar playing:

Seagal's always had some kinda "sweet girl" in his video/show. think it was a young n "sweet" sharon stone in "above the law".

Re: Steven Seagal...
 
That interview was horrible. He came across as inarticulate and does wonders for the image of aikidoka. Such wonderful statements: "Gatemouth never said anything nice about nobody, but what a great player. I'm the only one he was nice to. He would show me techniques, which he didn't do for anybody." and another gem: ". . .but I don't think I've ever played in Seattle. I don't have any memory of it, at least, but I might have been drunk."

I noticed in some of his later movies he has taken on a street style of talk. Is this an effort at trying to be hip?

Hey people have gone into music in worse ways; think about Shatner's "spoken word" phase.

mriehle 06-05-2006 10:30 AM

Re: Steven Seagal...
 
If it's all the same to you, I'd rather not contemplate William Shatner or Leonard Nimoy doing anything remotely intended to resemble music.

But, saying the Seagal's efforts are good in comparison is damning with faint praise.

I had a really interesting experience in France. My Mom-in-law and fiance and I were sitting around watching tv, and there was Steven Seagal on some game show or other. It was pretty bad. But hey, the man was getting paid!

Best,
Ron
