I am guilty of overplaying some bands, then get tired of it and don't touch it for quite awhile.

Sometimes when I buy a new CD, I'll spin through it, then put it in the rack and leave it alone for months and months before I listen again...just so I won't overdo it and get tired of it.

Sometimes I put certain bands on personal restriction.

As much as I like Mule, I've had to go months without listening to one song so I don't burnout.

Years ago I was a Zappa album collecting freak...I have most of them and if you've ever seen the Zappa discography, that's no small feat...but I burned myself out on the music, it's hard to put some of that on anymore...I don't want to get to that point with Mule or ABB, hence the restrictions.

Anyone else have this problem?

I know the feeling. Your tase is obviously guitar oriented. break away for a bit. Listen to some horns. Jazz. Classical. Swing, anything else . Go back and listen to the old artist where your guitar idols got their first turnons.

I have a lot of different kinds of music in my collection. I try to make myself listen to different stuff a lot. Been way into Reggae lately, and Mozart, and old Delta bluesman Bukka White, and the new Tom Waits. That all started after a long dance with John Coltrane. And I always listen to a LOT of old Memphis R&B and progressive 70s soul like Curtis Mayfield and Bill Withers.

Oh yeah, and Dylan Dylan Dylan.

I find that the ABB and Mule take everything I like, pulled together in one blender with the guitars set on STUN. And so they kind of sum up and amplify everything I love in music -- they just have that pure musicality, that ears-wide-open quality. But all the streams that feed the mighty river of music are good by me.

My musical tastes are all over the place these days.

Just dont tie yourself down to one style of music.

Expand your mind

I used to do that until I saw my first DTB show.

I was never the same

I've been going through an old school metal faze lately. Heavy doses of Priest, UFO and Rainbow but I did listen to "Seven Turns" last Friday about 7 times while on a road trip out of town.

Oh yeah, thats why you gotta switch it up. Maybe a little Lamb Of God, Ani Difranco, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE IS GETTING BACK TOGETHER FOR A SHOW IN CALIFORNIA, F*CK YEAH! Or Tori Amos, Pantera, Susan Tedeschi, Deftones, Soulive, Soulfly, Los Lonely Boys, Slipknot, Clutch, Stevie Wonder, The Black Crowes, Mudvayne, Thelonious Monk, Rose Hill Drive, Sevendust, The Who, The Mars Volta, James Brown, John Scofield, Kittie, Faith No More, Pearl Jam, Living Colour, Incubus, Sarah McLachlan, TOOL, Down, System Of A Down, Tom Petty, Traffic, Audioslave, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Matisyahu, Otep, Rush, Primus. Ok I'll stop.

Matt Abts said something like "theres good music in every genre, you just gotta find the stuff you like or the better music in each genre." or something to that effect. This was at an acoustic show in Hartford, CT or right by Hartford at Trinity College. I couldn't agree more. Some bands had to grow on me little bit like The Dave Matthews Band. At first I hated them because of the same 2 or 3 songs you couldn't get away from. Then I saw them live on some T.V. special where they played some DIFFERENT tunes, and I wanted to F#ck the WHOLE band. Just kidding. But they really do kick @ss.

I just downloaded the Helsinki concert video.

PM me your address, and I'll send you a copy.

I also have most of Frank's catalogue.

I have had several "vacations" from his music, I understand.

The Zappa Plays Zappa tour was a fantastic shot in the arm for all of us who miss Frank.

Got a lot of that on CD and DVD as well.

I know this will get a few but I'm getting bored with this lineup of the ABB. They've been together now as long as any lineup in the past. It wouldn't hurt my feelings one bit if I never heard Woman Across the River and Instrumental Illness ever again.

My three favorite moments from the last two years have been the two shows (Huntsville,AL and Last year at Wanne) when Jack Pearson replaced Derek and last year at Atlanta when Vaylor played Hot Lanta.

I'll still go them this year though

I haven't listened to Mule in about 3 years. I listen to ABB once in a while. I'm catching myself listening to Dylan's new cd and Clapton/Cale's new cd too.

Besides that I have tons of tunes on my mp3 player that I use at the gym... stuff that gets my blood pumping, but not great music.

Nope - not really. I listen to a wide variety of different musical styles (rock, blues, jazz, folk, classical, opera, show tunes even - just about everything except rap, the Brittany type gals, stuff that's too pop for my ears, some kinds of country music). Keeps me stimulated. I do admit to sometimes keeping the same set of CD's in my car changer for periods of time or listening to a CD over-and-over for a period but I don't find it boring - I'm just concentrating on that music for awhile. Doesn't keep me from wanting new stuff, though - I just head to the CD shop ( love those headphone things that allow you to taste music before you buy).

I've now amassed around 750 commerical CDs so usually i don't have a problem finding something to "change it up"......... that being said sometimes i get bit by the bug, drive down to Amoeba music and wander around to find something new. I love that place, it's like a musician's candy store

I definitely go through phases, and like many here, my "base of taste*" is broad enough so that I never get bored with what I've got . . . I just change lanes every now and then.

For instance, for the past several months, just about all I wanted to hear was wailing electric blues guitar . . . so I sought out, and found, a whole bunch of Hendrix, SRV, Robben Ford, Frank Marino, Johnny Winter, Clapton, Rory Gallagher, dashes of ABB and Mule, etc.

Just recently, I've been listening to more and more Jimmy Herring in a variety of contexts - you can get some of his work with Oteil and the Peacemakers on bt.etree right now - stellar stuff.

At other times I'll get back into my 70's British Prog (Floyd, Yes, Genesis, ELP and Crimson, for the most part).

I'll have my "relive my teenage years" phases when I'm gobbling up Maiden, Judas Priest, Scorpians, Schenker, etc.

I was a huge folkie in college, and amassed a collection of basically everything that was available by Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly at the time (though more has been released since which I do not have) - and a lot of the next-generation stuff, Dylan, Arlo, Ochs, Paxton, Dave Von Ronk, etc.

I'm slowly building a modest jazz collection - centered on Miles and Coltrane, for the most part. I'll sometimes go a few weeks listening mostly to that . . .

I've got a fair collection of non-Delta blues from the 20's - 40's, Mississippi John Hurt, Rev. Gary Davis, Blind Boy Fuller, Blind Blake, etc.

So, to answer the question, yes. I get bored with what I'm listening to now . . . so I listen to something else.

Have fun. There's a lot out there.

*I just made that up. Cool, huh?

i'll admit that by the middle of April, i'm pretty good on the ABB for a few weeks and have to set it aside.

i am very fortuate to have countless amounts of diverse music in my collection, but lately i'm very, VERY drawn to all forms of classical jazz.

...I certainly go thru 'phases'...for a while it was Miles' fusion era...anything Hubert Sumlin played on...Stevie Wonder's masterpieces of the 70's...etc...
...but I never seem to get tired of ABB, dTb or the Grateful Dead...

This has become an extreme problem for me, at my somewhat advanced age (58 ).
I used to listen to quite a variety, all the time. I've become so engrossed with what the ABB has brought to the table in the last few years that I quickly lose interest in so much of what I used to really enjoy. That's the down side of being a Peachhead. Once you've been to the top of the mountain, enjoyed the view for awhile, the stuff you passed on the journey seems somewhat ordinary. An exception is the Peter Frampton special that PBS has been showing. Maybe because it's live music.....

I get bored with my music collection sometimes and I have a LOT of music.....

Thats why I enjoy my Napster so much...always something else to hear.

Then later....I want to hear my stuff again.....

I change in cycles...Metal for a while....Rock...Punk...Goth...I love old Country...but not the stuff they play now...not much of it anyway.

The nicer the weather..the heavier the sounds...July is a good Pantera month.

On a cold ,drab day...maybe some early REM or music in that vein.

I have become such an ABB, Gov't Mule junkie that I have to make myself cool it on their material at times. I'm afraid of wearing it out. I won't listen to either band for about a month leading up to a show I'm attending. After seeing these bands I know the live recordings will be close behind and I'll play them to death for about a month and then totally put them aside. Like many of you I have a varried musical collection to rifle through. I like everything from folk to jam to heavy metal so I don't allow myself to become bored.

I do the exact same thing, but maybe not for a whole month. I'll sort of starve myself of it for a week or so leading up the show, that way, I'm even hungrier for it when I get there.

Kind of like going to a good buffet - you save up that appetite.
