Spread Joy,
Give Music.
One of my most prized possessions is a 1978 Rogue bass, which is a copy of a Fender Precision bass,
back when that was allowed. As a young bass player and singer, out on the road with my band,
I sometimes had problems with broken strings. As many of you will appreciate, a string never breaks
at the best of times and now and then, you just need to be able to play through until the end of the
set. So, I decided that I needed a backup, just for those emergencies, until I had a chance to replace
the string on my main instrument, a Musicman bass.
I remember getting the Rogue and thinking, this is an okay looking bass for a reasonable price.
It SOD\VRND\$QGLWZLOOGH´QLWHO\GRZKHQ,QHHGDTXLFNVXEVWLWXWHWR´QLVKRXWWKHVHW$QG
then I started using it. And it was way better than I thought. And it quickly became my favourite
bass. So much so, that 41 years later, it’s still one of the basses that I play regularly.
That’s one of the best things about musical instruments as gifts. They keep on giving for a long time.
When you give an instrument, you open up the door to a whole new world – whether it’s just a new
version of your current instrument or something you’ve never tried before, the gift of music endures
and excites both the newest, and the most experienced, musician.
There’s also a wide range of options that you can gift: Lessons for that certain someone to try
something new and exciting; a rental instrument if they’re not ready to take the plunge but want to
dip a toe into new waters; something new and extraordinary that they might not even know they
want until they get it.
And then there are accessories – those things that make great stocking stuffers or gifts for the
musician who has (almost) everything: sheet music, a new strap for the guitar, reeds for wind
instruments. A new percussion instrument like sleigh bells is a lot of fun over the holidays.
Headphones, music stands, speakers, a gig bag or tool; the list goes on and on.
If you don’t know what to get, just drop into your local Long & McQuade or visit us online at
long-mcquade.com 2QH RI RXU H[SHUW VWDII ZLOO EH KDSS\ WR KHOS \RX ´QG

As we like to ask at Long & McQuade, how many guitars does a guitar player need?
One more than they have. That’s as true about all things musical as it is about
guitars. And as true over the holidays as it is the rest of the year. So spread music,
and spread joy, this festive time of year.

WHERE THE MUSIC BEGINS. 21


HAVIAH
MIGHTY
THE NEW NORTH STAR
By Andrew King

22 LONG-McQUADE.COM
You could be forgiven for thinking Haviah Mighty came
out of nowhere to take the 2019 Polaris Music Prize –
awarded to the best Canadian album each year based
solely on artistic merit – for her collection, 13th Floor.
As she acknowledged in her humble and heartfelt
acceptance speech, the gifted Toronto-based MC, singer,
and producer has “put out a lot of music with very
few accolades and very little reward” over the years.
Fortunately for her – and even more so for music fans –
that’s no longer the case.
Leading up to her Polaris win in September, the artist
enjoyed a heap of attention surrounding her JUNO
Week performances in April, dropped 13th Floor in
May to stellar reviews from esteemed media outlets,
and played some prestigious summer festivals across
the country. That’s on top of the acclaim she’s earned
DVRQHWKLUGRIKHUDOGHGKLSKRSRXW´W7KH6RURULW\
And to be totally clear, she’s just getting started.
“My goal is to have my message reach as many
people as possible,” she asserts, “so I want to reach
as much of Canada as I possibly can. But I 100%
want to expand beyond that, so I’ve focused on
strategies that will get my music outside the scope
of what we know and where we are.”
There’s no question that her output is slick and
substantial enough for a worldwide mainstream
audience, as showcased throughout 13th Floor’s
13 tracks. Building atop the foundation of her
previous work – particularly her breakout 2017
LP, Flower City – Mighty says her latest album
RIIHUVDPRUHUH´QHGWDNHRQKHUVLJQDWXUHVRXQGJULWW\UDSLG´UHUDSDQGJUDFHIXOYRFDOPHORGLHV
atop genre-bending, ultra-modern productions.
Songs like “Blame” and “Smoke,” the latter featuring a verse from fellow Canadian MC Clairmont the
6HFRQG VKRZFDVH KHU H[SORVLYH SHQ DQG XQPLVWDNDEOH µRZ ZKHUHDV WKH 5 %URRWHG ª<RX 'RQ­W
/RYH0H«DQGGDQFHKDOOEDQJHUª:LVK\:DVK\«IHDWXULQJYRFDOKHOSIURPVLVWHU2PHJD0LJKW\´QG
KHUµH[LQJKHUVLQJLQJSURZHVVGHYHORSHGRYHU\HDUVRIYRLFHOHVVRQVGXULQJKHU\RXWK
Her output is arguably most potent when combined with some impassioned social commentary,
touching on topics from slavery and its harrowing aftermath, to empathy, empowerment, and
beyond. Such is the case on the hard-hitting “Thirteen,” featuring some impactful bars over a sparse
but sobering beat, and “In Women Colour,” which might offer the album’s best overall sampling of
Mighty’s many strengths as a performer.
“I really think that the climate is more tailored to the way I’ve always been, because I’ve always
been pretty outspoken,” says the artist about how today’s social and political environment affects
and frames her work. “I like the fact that these conversations are happening even more. I hold my
tongue sometimes in life, but music is one place I speak my truth” – and that makes her lyricism
all the more compelling.
'HVSLWHRQO\KDYLQJWKUHHIURQWIDFLQJJXHVWV¨&ODLUPRQW2PHJDDQG6HDQ/HRQ¨OHQGLQJWKHLU
vocal talents, the collection was still a relatively communal effort. Co-executive produced by Tim
“2oolman” Hill of A Tribe Called Red, who Mighty credits as being a mentor through the creative
process, the album boasts some stylistically diverse productions courtesy of her real-life
EURWKHU0LJKW\3U\QFHIUHTXHQWFROODERUDWRU<RXQJ'UHDG]DQGWKHHYHULQQRYDWLYH2%8;80
“I love that process of several people bringing a song together,” she says – even though she’s
very much the mastermind with the ultimate creative vision. “[The album has] a message we all
want to be spreading, and that’s why there’s this conviction to the way we’re doing it.”
Her circle – proudly branded as the Mighty Gang – gets even wider when you include her
SURIHVVLRQDOWHDP'HVSLWHEHLQJDQLQGHSHQGHQWDUWLVW0LJKW\KDVFRPSLOHGDWDOHQWHGJURXS
of industry pros to support her work and help inject her message into the public consciousness.
“It’s a bunch of really knowledgeable people working on this thing that I’m doing – that
understand the different parts of what this is – and collaborating on those ideas,” she says.
It’s impressive enough that Mighty has thrust herself to the upper echelons of Canada’s
talent-stacked but under-supported hip-hop scene, but as mentioned, she and her team
have no shortage of ambition. Their sights are currently set on a strong push into the U.S.
and then there are aspirations of eventually breaking into Europe and Africa.
While the triumphant 13th Floor represents the pinnacle of her creative output to date, that
ZRQ­WEHWKHFDVHIRUORQJ/HVVWKDQDGHFDGHDIWHUZULWLQJKHU´UVWVRQJ+DYLDK0LJKW\
has proven herself as a poster girl for artistic progress, and is hungry to continue on her

WRZLQ3RODULVLQLWV\HDUKLVWRU\WKRXJKWKHUHDUHSOHQW\PRUHª´UVWV«\HWWRFRPH¨DQG
that’s where she and her team are focused for the foreseeable future.
The name might have been new to you when it was shouted aloud at the 2019 Polaris
Prize gala, but now, expect to see – and hear – Haviah Mighty all over the place.

Editor’s note: Fun fact – Haviah Mighty worked at the Long & McQuade location in
Brampton for almost four years.

WHERE THE MUSIC BEGINS. 27
By Stephen Klein

THE
MIDDLE
28
EIGHT LONG-McQUADE.COM
Paul McCartney said, in his Many Years from Now biography:
“We used to call everything a middle eight, even if it had 16 bars. George
Martin used to point out,
“Paul, hasn’t this got 16 bars?”
“Yes George, it has.”
“But you’re calling it a middle eight?”
“Yes George, we are.”
”I see. Super.”
“We called them middle eights. We had heard musicians say “that’s a
QLFHPLGGOHHLJKW«DQGZHGLGQ­WJHWWKHVLJQL´FDQFHRIWKHHLJKW:HMXVW
learned the word for it and that was what we called it: there were verses,
choruses and middle eights.”

The “middle eight” is a contrasting section in the centre of a pop song. That
they did not know the correct technical term doesn’t affect the greatness of
the Beatles music one bit, nor does it mean that they weren’t great natural
musicians. They recognised the use and function of the term and wrote
perfectly calculated contrasting sections.
It does point out, however, one of the real reasons that musicians in general
study theory – to be able to talk to other musicians about music.

without playing it. You could say “the place where it goes dah-dah-da da-da-
da-da-dah” but it is not very effective, and you still don’t know whether you are
WDNLQJDERXWWKHSODFHLWRFFXUUHGDIWHUWKH´UVWYHUVHRUVHFRQGRU¡
If you know the structure (that is theory!), then you can refer to places in it.
If you know the harmony (that is theory!), then you can refer to that place
where we modulated to IV or the subdominant (or other keys). You could say
it rhythmically (that is theory!) – where we go from eighth notes to triplets (or
some other rhythm.)
Working in a band can be really easy if you don’t have to sing or whistle or play to
show where you are.
One also needs the terms and ideas to be able to analyze what others have done.
This is the other side of theory. Once you get past the basics of having the terms
you need to talk about music, you can then start discussing its structure, how it
was put together, how you could put together something like it or what interesting
variations there were compared to a song they did the year before. This is the fun
part of theory: Understanding and talking about how something was composed and
how one might compose something else.

´OOLQWKHEODQNV
Haydn was quite similar to the Beatles in one way. He sat down every day and wrote
music, whether inspired or not. Of course, he had less choice than the Beatles. He had
to produce music on command each week for the Esterhazys – one of the wealthiest
families in the Austro-Hungarian empire. He created music for his patron to play, music
for court entertainments, operas, and symphonies and music for dinner.
Paul McCartney and John Lennon were determined to be great songwriters and would sit
GRZQDOPRVWHYHU\GD\WRJHWKHU LQWKH´UVW\HDUV WRZULWHDVRQJ7KH\PD\RUPD\QRW
have felt inspired but they would force themselves to complete a song.
Haydn once called himself a craftsman who had to work at his music. Some of his most
loved works came from days that he did not feel inspired, but used his knowledge of how
music was put together to make something that worked.
The same thing happened to John and Paul. The daily work with a form that they understood
in their ears if not with their minds let them create masterpieces even on their “off” days.
Some composers do not want to study others’ music because they want to preserve their

MUSICAL
GIFTS
FOR ALL AGES By Tony Bouma

If you have been playing an instrument for a long time, you may have forgotten what a life-changing gift music
can be. The transformative power of art is well-documented, and the deep connection people feel to “their”
music is undeniable.
A musical gift could be an instrument, certainly. But it could also be an experience or an opportunity that the
person wouldn’t have otherwise had.
As we enter into the holiday season, consider sharing your love of music with the non-musicians on your list.
Below are some ideas for instruments and experiences sorted by age category.

WHERE THE MUSIC BEGINS. 37


Younger Children
There are countless articles linking music in early childhood to positive outcomes in
every aspect of human development – including numeracy, physical coordination,
and social skills.

of toy facsimiles of drums, guitars and pianos on the market. This is a great time to
see if a particular instrument excites them.
As for actual instruments, there are quite a few percussion options that can be safe
for toddlers, such as large egg shakers and hand drums. Choose items that are

provide an introduction to both pitch and rhythm.
EXPERIENCES
If your youngster watches television programs that incorporate music, watch
with them and enthusiastically sing along and/or clap your hands with the music.

thing that happens” but something that people create.
Allow some time for your preschooler to safely explore any instruments you have in
the home or that your friends may be willing to share. Show them how they work,
and let them try for themselves, if possible.

School-Aged Kids

by their friends at school.
INSTRUMENTS
If your child is involved in the school band program, they may not have been lucky

try alto sax, consider renting one for them.

make the music they listen to with their friends. If they have expressed an interest in

options available, making those instruments more accessible than you might imagine.
EXPERIENCES
The young person on your shopping list may or may not have musical style

spend time exploring music together. Occasionally select a random genre of music
to listen to while travelling in a car or doing chores, and discuss what each of you
likes – or doesn’t – about that particular style.
Sign your youngster up for lessons on any instrument they express an interest

people often want to do EVERYTHING they see others doing... guitar, piano, drums,

Teenagers
Music is incredibly important to high school students. Often the music a teen chooses
WROLVWHQWRFDQEHDSDUWRIWKHLUVHOILGHQWLW\DQGDZD\WR´WLQWRDSHHUJURXS
Art of any kind is vital for teens, as their need to express themselves becomes
overwhelming. Finding an appropriate outlet for their emotions can make a huge
impact at this point in their lives.
INSTRUMENTS
,I WKH WHHQ RQ \RXU JLIW OLVW OLNHV ªWUDGLWLRQDO« URFN FRXQWU\ SRS RU PHWDO EDQGV
simply ask what instrument they would want to play. There are plenty of packages
available at reasonable prices that will include everything they need to get started.
If they listen to modern production music, such as EDM, hip hop or rap, you
can still support their creative dreams at Long & McQuade. There are plenty of
MIDI controllers (which are keyboard or drum pad devices) that come bundled
with software, and will have them building beats and creating music in no time.
Microphones and computer interfaces are also great gifts, as they can be used for
non-musical self-expression as well, such as podcasting and vlogging.
EXPERIENCES
Support your teen’s interest in seeing live music, even if it is music you personally

having a love for any genre of music can be emotionally positive.
Express your own musical taste as often as possible as well. (Odds are good that
you are nostalgic about the music your parents listened to in your home... your kids
will feel the same way in a few years!)

Adults
The every-day responsibilities of being an adult can often push artistic interests aside. However, self-
expression can be just as necessary and therapeutic to an adult as it is to a teenager.

INSTRUMENTS
If the adult you are buying for played an instrument in their youth, try to rekindle that passion buy getting
them started again. If you cannot afford to replace the instrument itself, buy them a few accessories and

EXPERIENCES
As adults, we instinctively place far greater value on experiences than possessions. Encourage your
non-musical friends to join you when you make music...watching you at a performance or a rehearsal
may be the inspiration that sets them on their own path.
Also invite them out to take in live music of all kinds. From local blues bars to major stadium rock tours,
they will remember the time you shared.

INSTRUMENTS
Try to keep the individual’s living situation in mind. If they live in a senior’s residence or apartment
building, space and volume will be factors to consider when purchasing an instrument. Also be mindful
of their physical condition. Arthritis, shortness of breath, or muscular degeneration may be issues to
consider when selecting an instrument for an older person.
Keyboards and electronic pianos with multiple instrument sounds are great for seniors, as are acoustic
guitars. Ukuleles have recently become popular with older adults as well.
EXPERIENCES
Once they have acquired some basic skill on their instrument, go out of your way to make music with
them. Bring your instrument when you visit, or sing along with them. Time together is often the greatest
gift you can give.
Take them to a park when there is music scheduled. If you live somewhere where there is musical
theatre, invite them to join you for a show.
$VNDERXWWKHPXVLFRIWKHLU\RXWKDQGWU\WR´QGDXGLRRUYLGHRWRVKDUHZLWKWKHP$VNTXHVWLRQVDQG
listen to their stories. Incorporate their memories into your own music.
If your older loved one lives in a seniors’ residence, consider talking to the staff about organizing musical
activities as a volunteer. Drum circles, sing-alongs and karaoke parties are things you can provide with
just a few rental items from Long & McQuade. Volunteering will be as much a gift to you as it is to them.

A Note On Rentals and Used Instruments As Gifts


Some people are hesitant to rent an instrument as a gift. However, renting an instrument may provide
an opportunity for someone to experience playing an instrument that would be otherwise out of reach.
It also gives the recipient a chance to prove their dedication and aspire to someday owning their own
musical gear. It is a safe and inexpensive way to give someone the gift of music. Similarly, higher quality
hand-me-downs and used instruments are often better choices than lower quality new instruments.
8VHGLQVWUXPHQWVRIWHQFRPHZLWKLQVSLUDWLRQDOVWRULHV6D\LQJªWKLVZDV\RXUXQFOH­V´UVWJXLWDU«FRXOG
motivate a young person to be worthy of a slightly battered acoustic.
The idea that an instrument may have had a colourful existence before it
reached your hands can be inspiration for a new song, at the very least.
