RIP Dan Peek

Recommended Posts

Founder member of "America" Dan Peek passed away on the 24th. He was 60.

 

I have grown to appreciate America's music as I have grown older. Their vocal harmonies and acoustic sound are very good to me. The music is still a little to neutered for me, but I like Sister Golden Hair and Ventura Highway. I actually learned the chords for "Horse with No Name" and play it when I am messing around with my acoustic guitar

 

Apparently Dan left the band and became a Christian in the late '70s.

 

RIP

As did I. It was one of the first songs I learned. My absolute favorite America song was Sandman.

Very sad and an absolute bummer to hear this news. RIP Dan!

Lydian mode? The only mode I know has the words "pie ala" in front of it.

Sad news.

 

Damn if those boys don't have the 70's California look down, though,

Guitar solos last 30 seconds, the bass line lasts for the whole song.

lol yeah I know it isn't a big challenge, but I thought it was cool at the time. It's one of the first things I learned
