One of my all time favorite pieces of music (the song, not this particular performance (too much unnecessary percussion in the intro))....



This was one of the first pieces with which I really connected emotionally and intellectually (circa 10th grade). I had lots of music that made me want to dance, but fewer songs that made me emote or think.

Another one from the Grateful Dead:


I first heard this one at a party-- a really wild party-- in 1974...

Had a great time, loved the song... still love it. Reminds me of better times.

Beethoven Moonlight sonata.....

Its really the saddest piece ever....

But a lot of music moves me....I couldn't even list it....

as far as popular stuff goes...."Finding my way home" by Steve Winwood struck a deep chord with me right after my mom passed...so deep I learned it and played over and over....

I want music to move me, not decorate the background.

I said this here, about 8-10 years ago, I want memorable music that I remember like the time I laid down my bike.

The first time I heard this, it changed my playing forever.


@TheX, can't remember if I've already mentioned this.... In college (early 70's) a buddy of mine from a filthy rich famous family, had a Segovia guitar. Don't remember the name, but it was a Hernandez, or something like that. From what he told me it took chests of money and a Papal blessing to get one. He hopped out of the top bunk in his dorm room and put both feet into the body of the guitar. Can't remember if it was ever repaired.

Marillion’s “Misplaced Childhood”. The entire album, but particularly “Bitter Suite”. Still gives me chills when I hear it.

Like many of you, it’s not just the music, it’s a person and a point in time that ties this music to my soul.

My mom was a flamenco dancer and took me to see Segovia (I was 5 or 6) and didn't appreciate then....But My sister is a professional flamenco dancer and teaches it out of her home....

Amazing musicians in her group....put my playing to absolute shame...

but there is a lot of passion in that music.....and when you see it live it really does lift your soul...
