The most beautiful piece of music I've heard in a while!

David Qualey playing "Let it Be" on classical guitar.....this is absolutely an incredible interpretation and I wish I was HALF the musician this guy is

I dunno... He's a talented guitarist with an incredible familiarity of the fret board, but IMO the timing was way too choppy instead of flowing smoothly. But that's just me.

Very nice, it's kind of folksy.. btw, I despise pretty much anyone who can play chord melodies on the guitar, playing chord + melodies (+ base lines!) at the same time is just sick man. . it's kind of like being able to solve a rubik's cube in under a minute the first time you pick it up, -it's just not 'natural' to possess such abilities. non. :P

Speaking of chord melodie soloist savants, has anybody else have ''Chord Chemistry'' - by this guy? As far as I know, he is like the Bobby Fischer of chord melodie fretboard magicians.








*correction, 'was' .. I just read on youtube that he has past on.

Different strokes for different folks.

This has been my all time favourite song ever since it was released. (It's shortened a bit for the video)

Hey, I love that song, either the Metallica version or the original Irish folk version!

That's just sick.. That kid is sick in the soft gelatonous areas inside the membranous cavity of his cranium.. For real.

Heh, I really liked it when Thin Lizzy did it years ago. Metallica does it very well

Yngwie Malmsteens' live version of Icarus' Dream Suite is a pretty amazing little piece.....

I was always a bit partial to The Verve's intro to "Bittersweet Symphony" too, with the violin and cello (I like the extended version).

And lastly....Rodrigo's "Concerto de Aranjuez"....

Yeah, I really love their version as well. Far better than the Thin Lizzy version, IMHO.

But doesn't it kinda sound like he's singing "whiskey in the gyro"?

Well, enough whiskey and your head feels like Gyro, true?
