Almost makes me feel ashamed to say I play guitar. I stick to the first three frets. What a talent, has to be God given. Looks like he memorized every note. I wonder does he play country>LOL

Not desiring to one up you John, but that guy is "the JV team" compared to Tina.
And she's a pretty little thing...

When Jethro Tull saw Jimmy Hendricks play guitar he decided he himself would never be that good. So he stopped playing guitar and switched to flute.

That's fantastic too Martin. But Beethoven's 5th is more appealing melodically, than the 3rd movement of Moonlight Sonata. Yeah, she's a great guitarist for sure.

Best, John smile

I would never bad mouth Jimmy Hendricks with so many fans on this site Perry. Oh, what the hay... I wasn't all that impressed with him. Kind of a natural, raw talent, rather than one with discipline and finesse. Doesn't stand up to the guitarists in the videos above. Maybe I'm missing something, but this was horrible: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?...EF241064C7C0EE5DA17&&FORM=VRDGAR

I'm too much the serf to be able to comprehend the music. I'm just fascinated by the speed and accuracy of the French teenager's hands. In that regard, I'm kind of like a cat watching a bug crawl across a TV screen.

Rare people are born with aptitudes and anatomical configurations that are the equivalent of winning Powerball. I wasn't one. Not even anywhere close. Seems like she was. I'm glad that Youtube exists so that I can see what that level of aptitude and genetics looks like up close.

Hey Martin! Yes speed, endurance, perfection, etc... is coming out of todays music schools. I just hope the youngin's don't forget about the "heart". The "heart" in music can't be taught. But it's the most important element.

You don't have to stand in any secondary line Ricki! You put the "heart" into your music.

ITS MELODY THAT COUNTS IN THE LONG RUN

Classics are something else composed in an age when the Piano was the

instrument , The Study of Classical music can be enormous benefit to Song Writers

incidentally I met a Spaniard many moons ago he played a beaten up acoustic

guitar in a class that I had never heard before

I have seen many more pro musicians since, and yet never one better than him

this spaniard was a Cook on The Aga Khans Yacht that was moored of shore

in Portsmouth U K Enjoyed your post thank you John

One of the most important principles of songwriting is to remember that a good song is a partnership of many different components, all working together to produce a satisfying musical experience.

In that respect, song components are either enhancing or compromising their combined effects.

Years ago, as a freshman I was privileged to see and hear Andres Segovia play his acoustic guitar on stage. No props, no backing musicians, no visible amplifiers. Just one middle-aged, semi-rotund little man... sitting in a chair imposing his will on an audience of thousands with his unparalled skill and playing technique. He was amazing.

Speaking of beaten up acoustics... was it held together with spit, chewing gum, bailing wire and an old belt, like Willie Nelson's guitar, "Trigger", Cheyenne? That must have been an impressive event in Portsmouth. Funny how performances can change our perspectives... especially in music.

What I would give to have the capabilities of our resident Composer, JLS... the "owner" of the shout box.

Hey Cheyenne,

Yes, I agree, melody rules. The difficult job for songwriters is finding a new melody within those 12 half-tones (and octaves). Not quite as difficult in my genre, where more liberty is tolerated. And yes, studying the Masters is of great benefits. A good exercise (and fun) is composing in the style of the Masters.

I'm doing my best to retain my composure, John. We both know that the Queen of the Lowlands only shows up when Wy is around! What is it about that old Missouri Mule that causes women to appear out of nowhere? Must be the many intellectual facets he brings to the table. I'm going to be paying more attention to him from now on! ...then there's that shifty guy from "Down Unda!" I just can't figure out what he's really up to? Something mysterious about his demeanor!

On a side note... we need to have a serious discussion with Brian about this JPF spell-checker. It constantly underlines words I've used in Red, causing me to doubt my impressive vocabulary and refer to Mr. Webster... who always seems to uphold my method of spelling! What is going on here? Do you think the Russians are up to something?

Well, Beethoven was a fantastic composer for sure. I never tried to play the 5Th on Guitar but can play a wee bit of Ode To Joy from the 9Th. But to be sure I will have to stick to 3 Chords and occasional "Truth".

Thanks John,

I really enjoyed the mini concert--but just baffled, amazed, and impressed; but now when I pick my guitar, I'm a bit depressed...........
