Celebrating Guitar Virtuosity!

Posted on by Joshua Dysart Posted in Journal, Music | Leave a comment

I’ve been learning to play the guitar for about a year now (with little headway – it’s just something to do when I’m not writing). My quest to understand the instrument has opened my eyes to the beauty of more technically obsessive musicians. Lately I’ve been taking great pleasure in listening intently to the music of the people below. Watching them play is like having an anatomy lesson in the instrument. They dissect every potential that lies hidden in the fret board. If you’re into it, click on some of these videos and see what I mean.

Fantastic response by Bill Clinton to Chris Wallace’s question about Clinton’s anti-terrorist strategy while in office. I tried to post the video here, but FOX news has made YOU TUBE take it down. I found it at this link.

Check it out soon, I don’t know how long it’s going to remain up.

Here’s fox news’ response: link.

Here’s video of Keith Olbermann’s Special Comment to Bush: “Are YOURS the actions of a true American?”

“A life-size replica of a Guantanamo Bay detainee has been placed in Disneyland by “guerrilla artist” Banksy. The hooded figure was placed inside the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride at the California theme park last weekend. It is understood to have remained in place for 90 minutes before the ride was closed down and the figure removed.” – full article here


Banksy is due to hold what is billed as a “three day vandalised warehouse extravaganza” in Los Angeles this weekend.
