Way over my head but very interesting. Thanks for the post, Doug.
Got to be careful with a pythagoras!
It truely is an interesting video. And funny, too. I like how Hanes is talking about scales and Martin wants to chime in talking about keys. Well, you don't need to know the theory to be a musician and knowing the theory doesn't make you a musician...

I thought it was funny. Sometime laughter is a good remedy for problems. I did not consider the video political. It just reflected how ridiculous political activities can become. In an election in Brazil, voters became so disenchanted with the political situation, their write-in votes elected an animal in the zoo to public office.
BTW, the moderator in the video was better than average.
I liked the part about and octave being ten notes.
A lot of old timers dislike the ongoing evolution of Bluegrass music. I think I lament the loss of characters like Martin and Haney more than I do the changes in music.

A bit of local lore* in a central Alberta town we worked in several decades back, had it that between the printing of the ballots and the municipal election one of the candidates died...... but still got elected.
* = I say "lore" in that I don't know what the election laws would have stipulated.... maybe a by-election was a a requirement, so the first vote would have been immaterial, and therein people saw an opportunity to be "funny." I never checked into the details.... and have no idea how prevalent such stories might be.

During the 60's Vancouver had a controversial mayor named Thomas J. Campbell. He was continually at loggerheads with anyone or anything to do with the hippy movement. The hippies along 4th Avenue got together and nominated one their own . His name was Thomas A. Campbell. His name consequently appeared on the ballot alphabetically ahead of the actual mayor. On election night the hippy guy came within about 200 votes of winning.
Sorry folks, that video is definitely political and breaks rules, so it's hidden.
