Great quote from movie "A Star is Born" - 12 notes..
We saw the movie "A Star is Born" (with Bradley Cooper and Lady GaGa). It was a much better movie than I expected. Outstanding soundtrack, and while I'm not a big fan of Lady GaGa, I must say she did a superb job in this movie, as did Bradley Cooper (lead character (Jackson Maine) and director).

There was one scene towards the end where Bobby Maine (Jackson Maine's brother, played by Sam Elliott), sums up music and musicianship pretty simply, but rather poetically:

"There are only 12 notes between any octave, and then the octave repeats. All any artist can offer this world is how they see those 12 notes. That's it.".

Anyway, that quote struck a chord with me (pun intended)! ;)

We saw the movie last weekend really enjoyed it.

Twelve notes.......and infinite possibilities.

Well... that's true in Western music.

I enjoyed the movie and chuckled at that line.

Lady Gaga was terrific. Every single note that came out of her mouth was EXACTLY on pitch. Even her speaking voice is deep and rich. And she's got a look about her, even when she's not fixed up in the movie. She stole every scene she is in.

We like to scoff at pop music here on the AGF but we shouldn't forget that some of those folks are insanely talented.
