Captain Beefheart's 10 Commandments for Guitarists

at AC we ride for Turzi. if you're not clued in to these Parisians' blistering hawkwind/gates of dawn psych jams, we can recommend you do so. Their guitarist has a blog and on this blog he posted Captain Beefheart's 10 commandments for guitarists. For example:

"1. LISTEN TO THE BIRDS...That's where all the music comes from. Birds know everything about how it should sound and where that sound should come from. And watch hummingbirds. They fly really fast, but a lot of times they aren't going anywhere."

the rest are viewable on Clemens' blog, !!!Korrect!!!

UND of course props to dj slow for the find.

Captain Beefheart did not write or say this.

If it were real there would be a source listed for this travesty

Don't believe anything you link to on the internet

It doesn't matter if he really said it or not, because he should have said it. Good apocrypha makes up for detriments in reality.
