<quoted text>Stupidity is what stupidity does (or says)and you say much. I'm not talking about house slaves that may have had access to pianos or white European musical tastes,I'm talking about the everyday common field slaves who were in the VAST majority and knew next to nothing about life or culture outside the plantation.What,do you think they heard piano music floating upon the air from the big house and decided to imitate it? The influence of Blues music comes directly from West Africa. It was a form of mourning the death of loved ones and in fact a blue dye was used to dye clothing for funerals and to be worn by mourners hence the term for the musical genre. In turn,these melodies were incorporated into slave music on the plantations BEFORE blacks had widespread access to pianos and/or brass instruments.
You know,it's one thing if you want to tell people to jump off of other cultures but when you try to correct them about their own you come of looking simple,narrow minded, and just plain incorrect. You are no scholar of black American history.
Step off.
Don't smartass me, boy. In person that's a guarantee of a world of pain. You are attempting to tell me that the same chords as in Europe existed in W Africa? LOL!!! Because the chords of all USA music are European. Along with European scales and even notation. Nothing is African about any of that.

I don't deny the African influence, but you deny the European ones. That indicates that you are a racist. You know what I do to racists, boy? Come see me.

You don't tell me to step off, boy. You are maligning Celtic and other European people with this culture-vulture nonsense, so you back the fuck off, you got that, boy?

Also I know music far better than you do, I'm sure, blues or otherwise.

You think slaves were all out picking cotton, you moron? And they heard no whites playing music? I'm not talking about the piano so much as guitars, fiddles, etc.

You have a very shallow grasp of history based on your own inferiority-complex-rooted desire to pretend everything was black. Just another Afronazi racist...

You do know the ''Banjo''(African origin) is commonly associated with ''Irish folk/traditional music'' so clearly Africans & ''African Americans'' influenced Irish folk/traditional music.

The Banjo is very significant in this piece of art:


What next the Banjo came from Europe?

LOL!

What about ''call and response'' chords huh? Clearly African origin in ''African American'' music. What about polyrhtyms? Clearly African origin in ''African American'' music. Spare us the BS please, mr. Eurocentric.

The fife was one of the most important musical instruments in America's Colonial period, even more widespread than the violin or piano. The fife can still be heard in some Appalachian folk music, playing lively dance tunes. American slaves adopted fifes in their musical traditions, which derived from African music. The tradition developed into fife and drum blues, a genre, that continued throughout the 20th century, but is dying out. One of the most famous artists in the tradition was Othar Turner, a musician from Mississippi, who played Blues on homemade cane fifes. Turner died on February 27, 2003.

Indeed you're right,
The foundation of modern African American music is at the root of African music and instruments. Modern African American music styles in cases became modern Western Music. In fact the rhythmic chords are African oriented. Classic European music doesn't use certain typical intervals in key chords.
The reason why Africans used "European" type of instruments is because it was prohibited to use African instruments. "A major" influence is the Kora players and Griot tradition.

It's absolutely crazy to go and claim Blues, Jazz as European in origin. While the Kora tradition is clearly at her root. lol
LOL!!! im through arguing with crazy barros about the origins of my peoples music.

thats for providing the additional information. i wasn't familiar with the kora tradition.

You smartassed bastard... I know where the banjo came from because I'm more knowledgeable about this---and apparently any---topic than you.

The banjo is associated with Appalachian music, not so much Irish.

You're ignoring the European influence, you insecure bitch. What about call & response? LOL...

What about CHORDS and chord structure, etc.

You morons think the blues and jazz appeared among slaves? Wrong again, morons. Slavery had been over for some time.

Robt Johnson was not a slave, morons. Nor Sun House.

There are no “call and response chords”, you idiot. Call and response refers to vocal arrangements, not chords. What a moron.

What about this? What about that?

Shut your fucking mouth you smartassed racist know-nothing. How you must hate yourself to be so fearful of whites and European influence.

Get me an example of the blues or jazz from AFRICA, as traditional music, or shut up.

Went down to the crossroads... good image... the crossroads where European and African influences met.

I'm not Eurocentric, asshole, and if you call me that in person I'll kill you. Got that?

You Afronazi culture-vulture self-hating insecure bastards claim it is Eurocentric to assert that the Olmecs were Native Americans! LOL!!! Fucking morons.

Negroes have created all musical genres. The following three links prove this beyond all doubt so this conversation is therefore over. Anyone who denies that Negroes have created all music is completely insane in the membrane.

Oh so now you're a tough guy? Fail to make your point intellectually so you resort to threats and name calling? YAWN!

Theres nothing you can tell me about your perceived knowledge on the subject that will have me agape with wonder. No Barros,no. You are neither that intelligent,influential,or remarkable in your efforts to come across as knowledgeable. The very fact that I frustrate you is strong indication that you are trying more to be believed than you yourself believe. A sure way to make people stop paying attention to you and consider you foolish is to TRY and insult them in a discussion. You neither understand human psychology NOR cultural history.

The list of your short comings is growing.

And it's very sad indeed how that much loved African instrument has in our age been associated with the worst kind of white trash. To the point of not even being remembered by most as having African origin. They could have at least changed the name of the instrument smh.

Led Zeppelin is a bad example of the point you're making.

Led Zeppelin is NOTORIOUS for ripping off blues songs, changing a word or a riff here and there, then claiming they wrote it. They did this repeatedly. Jimmy Page is a colossal THIEF of music, for which he collects royalties when the songs were in fact written by USA black blues artists.

I can't even stand to listen to Zep because of this. Other British blues-based bands creditted their sources, and even helped them make money by playing as backup musicians with them...(as in “Howling Wolf---London sessions”, on which several Rolling Stones, Steve Winwood and others played). I have respect for those people for being honest... and including The Who, the Beatles, the Yardbirds and others who were not ripoff artists.

Led Zeppelin can eat my shorts.
