Hey there, does anyone else listen to Jethro Tull?

Aren't they so awsome?

Agreed. I love that flutter tonguing he does. Wish I could do it, but as soon as I try, my embouchure gets messed up and I lose the note completely. Should give it more practice sometime.

As a flutist who plays mostly non-classical (although I do love classical, and do play it on occasion) I tend to be interested in those applying the flute to other kinds of music than classical. And Ian Anderson does it very well, in my opinion.

A good inspiration for us "non-traditional" flutists.

My parents were huge Jethro Tull fans, and it was at their urging that I picked the flute to learn. You can imagine their disappointment when I came home with Mozart and Doppler rather than Ian Anderson inspired numbers.

I first went to see JT in London (my home town) in 1977 I think. I have been playing the guitar for about that amount of time too, and write and record my own material. About three weeks ago I bought a flute! Never picked one up before. I will use it to add bits and bobs to my songs. I am definitely at the informal end of th escale, so to speak - I can write music but I will never read it. My contribution to this thread is the following link:

some of you may find it of interest!

Hey everyone. I just wanted to comment on Jethro Tull. I love that band! Ian plays the Flute so amazing. One of my friends does the growls and the trills and stuff. Its pretty awesome. If you get the hold on it, try to listen to this song called My God I so cool the way the flute sounds on that one. But yeah, I just wanted to comment on this forum just cause I like the band lol.

I love Jethro Tull. We used to have the albums but something happened to them. I have a couple of their cds though. I really like the solor in "Locomotive Breath" but I like the beginning to "Crossed Eyed Mary" too. I almost went to see them when they came to the jazz fest a couple of years ago but we had a band concert that day. Does anyone else here listen to the Moody Blues??? Ray Thomas does some pretty cool flute stuff especially on "Days of Future Passed."

My husband owns some of his CD's and I think the man is brilliant on the flute, even if it isn't my style of music.

Ahhh, yes, Tull, the group that made the flute a cool Rock instrument overnight. My favorite Tull CD is "Benefit". There's also one where they play with the London Symphony Orchestra- it's called "A Classic Case" on the RCA label. Then there's "20 Years of Jethro Tull" which has a song called Stormy Monday Blues...first time I ever heard a flute playing Blues and I must say it works!

I love it when flute is used for Rock, Jazz and Blues- there's so much more emotion in those music forms compared to Classical.

Anybody here a fan of Hubert Laws or Dave Valentin?

Jethro Tull???
Who is that man?
Seriously, it makes me feel good to know that some of the old 60's>70's groups that I listened to are still somewhat popular. Some of these guys were phemnominal musicians. Andersen on flute was unusual. you didn't have many recordings where flute was used. Almost down to him, Moody Blues, I seem to remember something like the Satie piece from BS&T and the Phillips solo on Calif. Dreamin'.
But then you had so many skilled on guitar, Clapton, Paige, Beck, Santana, Hendrix ...
