    That was an awesome video man, thanks! Awesome find Duayer.

    I just found out I lost a guitar I was really really trying to trade for and I'm moping around about it haha It stings and there is only one album that could possibly accompany my mood right now.

    I am glad you liked it. it's strange, right now, at this moment, I am at MSN "talking" with a friend and he is talking about doing something like in this video (playing for change).

    Forgive me, but your previous post stands in bold contrast to a statement you made not so long ago (copied below). Am I to assume that you don't listen to all of that fantastic music for entertainment?

    Disregard the title. Then name of the song is The Sound Wave Reversing by Man or Astroman. Someone set the music to their own video.

    Good point Hans. I hope I can explain.
    I still occasionally try to listen just to entertain myself but it's really been futile for a long time. I just can't seem to enjoy listening to music the way I used to; on that more elementary level.

    I began studying the written note in 1965, still study today, and it seems I've lost my 'consumer's ear' as most commercial stuff just doesn't reach me anymore. Maybe it's the college degrees, or 32 years as an educator, but the commercial stuff just seems so primitive and simplistic, and I don't really learn anything from it anymore. I still love the commercial stuff, but rarely listen to it so I will continue to love it.

    When I listen now, I totally concentrate on the music rather than just hearing it in the background. Not really listening for enjoyment, but a more critical listening in hopes to derive some education from it, which I do enjoy. So I guess in that way it's come full circle. I do derive enjoyment but in a much different way and for a much different reason than before. Yes, it has taken some of the fun out of it, but I wouldn't change it back now and wouldn't give up my education for anything. I hope that makes some sense the way I tried to explain, but that's the way it's been for me for some years. I don't always understand it either.

    Music is such a wonderful thing. It can be so many different things to so many people. It is the superior language.

    As I write this I am listening to the first OHMphrey album, which I somehow never knew existed, even though I love Umphrey's McGee. It's a few guys from OHM, and a few from Umphrey's McGee. This is a real guitar showcase. The first song has an alternate picked/tremelo picked line that's about as fast and precise as I've ever heard from a player whose name doesn't rhyme with Shmeola. Great bass playing too.

    I love Rhapsody!

    One of the most incredible street performers I ever had the pleasure of seeing was in the 1980s in Detroit. He was dressed in ratty old tux tails, knee high moccasins, white face and a big red clown nose. To hear his violin singing the Etudes and Caprices of Nicolo Paganini was something I did not expect. Standing there listening for more than 2 hours and totally blown away. In that time I must have put $50 in his violin case. He knew every classical piece I asked him to play and he played it flawlessly from memory. The best on the street I've ever seen.

    Keith Moon died thirty-four years ago yesterday. IMO, he was a genius, and an absolute original. I can only imagine the music he and Ox must be playing together somewhere right now...

    "l Lost my wife and a girlfriend, somewhere along the way". That's just a great line!
