Dweezil Zappa Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Dweezil Zappa from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Just because something has tubes doesn't mean it's the best.
I mean, tubes are obviously good, but the circuit of
this thing is designed well and it sounds good.
- Dweezil Zappa

I really want younger audience members to see kids
in their early 20's playing Frank's music and to be

There are so many things that are misunderstood or
not recognized about my father's music because they've
been filtered by people who work for magazines like Rolling Stone.
- Dweezil Zappa

There's no difference in a lot of people's minds between
good musicians and popular musicians.
- Dweezil Zappa

 

The music that is played on the radio all the time
or written about in magazines has nothing to do with musicianship.
- Dweezil Zappa

I would love to expose multiple younger generations to Frank's music.
It's not an easy task because It's not ever going to

Frank's bands could play the hardest stuff and make
it seem like no big deal.
- Dweezil Zappa

For me, the most difficult thing is that I am learning
melodies on guitar from some songs whose melodies were
not meant to be played on guitar.
Ever.
They were intended mostly for keyboards or melodic percussion.
- Dweezil Zappa

We will have close to 3 months of rehearsals to learn about 30 songs.
Frank usually rehearsed a band for at least 3 months.
If it took him that long to be comfortable we probably
would need double the amount,
but It's just not financially possible to do so.
- Dweezil Zappa

Yes, but I view Frank's music as fully composed.
In other words, the arrangements can work for any idiom
such as a rock band or an orchestra.
Frank was a brilliant arranger and could make his music work in any context.
He proved that tour after tour and album after album.
- Dweezil Zappa

I mean, no offense, but I don't really see why,
like guitar players from Creed, or something like that,
are on the cover of guitar magazines.
Almost anybody can sit down and learn to play those songs.
- Dweezil Zappa

But the reality is when you write a song,
you should be able to strip away all the instruments
and just have a song right there with an acoustic guitar and a voice,
and the song should be good.
- Dweezil Zappa

Music can be so disturbing and frustrating.
I mean the business side of it.
The actual making music part is fun,
but the business side of it is just so out of control,
has nothing to do with anything.
- Dweezil Zappa

It was spontaneously composed as I was playing it.
And then I added a couple of other overdub textures
on top of it after the fact.
But it's one of those things where I wouldn't be able
to sit down and specifically write that.
That's just what came out.
- Dweezil Zappa

Well, Steve Vai joined my dad's band right around the
time when I actually started playing guitar.
So he gave me a couple of lessons on fundamentals,
and gave me some scales and practice things to work on.
But I pretty much learned everything by ear.
- Dweezil Zappa

About the only thing that I'll probably end up doing
is I made this amplifier with Peavey.
It's in the manufacturing stages right now,
and there are a lot of orders that we just got for it.
- Dweezil Zappa

And, you know, my dad would show me some things sometimes,
but the best things that I got to do were to actually
see really good players play up close.
That gives you an idea of fingering and technique and what not.
- Dweezil Zappa

I know my name gets used illegally all the time all over the internet.
You know, it is a trademarked name, so it will be something
that we always have to deal with.
I never needed to change it.
It was always fine with me.
It is a strange name; that's for sure.
- Dweezil Zappa

While it is true that Frank had a great sense of humor,
he was also very serious about composing music.
In reality there are only a handful of skilled players
who can play his most complex pieces.
It takes a lot of patience to learn and requires a fantastic memory.
- Dweezil Zappa

the world was over, it became a butterfly.

not just the beautiful and lovely things.

The River of Life has no meaning,
no good, no bad, no better, no worse,
no love, no hate, no fear, no anger, no joy.
The River of Life has no judgment, no expectation.
The River of Life just IS.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie PHOTO

I love you just the way you are.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie PHOTO

Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair."
Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be.
Demanding that life meet our expectations
is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence.
Life is a game with no rules.
Life just happens to us regardless of our best intentions.
Our only path to happiness lies in being open
to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble.
It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.

Is today a day to gather strength from the storm -
a day to to learn life lessons for the next battle?
Or is today a day to sit by the fire
and watch the storm rage outside?
Either way, the storm is just life.
Give thanks for all of Life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Know the power and the peace of saying,
"I love you just the way you are."

of just going along,
listening to all the things you can't hear,
and not bothering.
- A. A. Milne (Winnie-The-Pooh)

If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
- Mother Teresa

Hold on... Joyfully.
Holding-on does not have to be
a desperate teeth-gritting kind of holding-on.
Holding-on can be a joyful
"this is just the nature of Life,
so I may as well enjoy it"
kind of holding-on.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Just stop it. Seriously.
Whatever it is. Just stop it.
If only for an hour, a day, a week.
Stop doing it long enough to get a glimpse
of what the change would actually look like.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

just keeps getting pushed away again and again.

Most people give up just when
they're about to achieve success.
They quit on the one yard line.
They give up at the last minute of the game,
one foot from a winning touch down.
- Ross Perot

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed
is always to try just one more time.
- Thomas A. Edison

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

I have just tried to do my very best each and every day.

Improve what you can
and accept all the rest of life
just as it comes.
Know that fear is your worst enemy -
perhaps your only enemy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Leaders aren't born they are made.
And they are made just like anything else, through hard work.
And that's the price we'll have to pay
to achieve that goal, or any goal.
- Vince Lombardi

I wrap the potential for bitterness,
resentment, martyrdom in the blanket of forgiveness
and just set it down.
Then it just melts in the warmth. And goes away.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Just smiling goes a long way toward
making you feel better about life.
And when you feel better about life, your life is better.
- Art Linkletter

Just Do it!
- Nike ad

Could you risk believing that everything
will unfold just fine if you completely let go
of all concern about everything else,
and simply are here, now - if only for a moment?

just help enough other people get what they want.

just a choice.
