That guy is good. Did you check out his version of "Breaking the Law"? :)
It amazes me that many people simply walk by street performers without taking a few moments to stop and listen. There are some talent folks out there.
My pal Duayer sent this one to me a few years ago and I've loved it ever since.
That's killer Shawn!
I used to work out alongside this guy in Anaheim 1980-82. He played alongside Hollywood Fats in James Harmans Band. Those were swingin' times!
Here's David more recently...still swingin'...
That was an awesome video man, thanks! Awesome find Duayer.

I'm back to Long Road Out of Eden. This album is absolutely on my top 25 desert island albums.
That reminds me... I suppose I should get that list posted in the "top 25 albums" thread.
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).

I know it's a pretty weird mix of artists, but only a small fraction. I have more than 4100 live performances archived from 1937-2012. Never at a loss for what to listen to or watch. I like it all.
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.
Joe Bonamassa & Beth Hart - 'I'll take care of you':
Good point Hans. I hope I can explain.

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.
Funny this played on the shuffle today.

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!
You, my friend, have great taste in music! :)

May you all have a great weekend. :cool:
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.
