David Crosby, Steven Stills, Graham Nash ... and CSN

From the first time I heard "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," I fell in love with the sweet harmonies and rich, warming music made by Crosby, Stills and Nash.  Since that time, they celebrated the Summer of…Continue

John Mayer, wow!  He's really good and thanks for turning me on to him.  I’m already pasting some of his other performances from you tube.  Thanx ag’n!

His name makes me think of John Mayall.  I finally got to see Mayall at the Chance in Poughkeepsie back in '85 or thereabouts.  Skinny, silver haired, senior citizen, he did "Rocket in My Pocket," variation of a theme and brought the house down.  There’s been so many great guitarists, from Montgomery, to Hendrix, to Mayer.  When you get to that level, there’s no such thing as, “better,” just different styles. 

I was a devout Deadhead for thirty years but I've seen a lot of other shows as well.  I saw Hendrix in the Hollywood Bowl and the Doors at the Sea Witch, (a small club on Sunset Strip) to name just a few...  

The most memorable guitarist I ever saw was Joe Satriani.  I've seen guitarists with a more conventional style, but when it comes to raw talent, he's simply unbelievable!  I saw him in a small club in Denver a few years back.  He had about six guitars on the stage and was constantly changing them.  I would have thought it impossible to play ascending/descending quarter notes that fast. 

This clip is a live performance with his whole band.  When I saw him he was on stage with just a snare drummer.  Each set was like experiencing an amazing forty minute guitar solo.

Though one of my fave guitarists at the moment is John Mayer, who plays a lot like Hendrix in some of his songs.

I'm a heavy metal maniac, a wannabe Jimmy Hendrix and do redneck mods on my guitar, which I blast the neighbours out with regularly, to test my mods. 

Had a couple of bands in my 20s, but never got past pub gigs and the occasional dance hall.

Had a Blues Bros moment when the audience hired us to do a country music gig, and we didn't know any country music, so we played our heavy metal slowly.  

We never got invited back, but it was the fault of our manager, who named our band Dalles, after a toilet air freshener, and thus we got mistaken for a band named Dallas, who threatened to sue us for taking their gig, at $150 a night where they would have had to pay $800 for the real Dallas.

Carl, well, it's not jazz, but it has a good beat, as they said on Bandstand! Reminds me of the days I listened to America's "Horse With No Name".

I was so into this song when it came out.  I still have the album on vinyl.

Art Tatum has always been a favorite of mine.  I grew up listening to his music on 45 rpm records that an uncle had purchased in the 1950's.

Mercy, mercy, mercy! Art Tatum was the king! And I bet not 3 people in 100 have ever heard of him. Fun listening. Thanks, Carl.

How did copy-wright work for these songs?
