It's getting hard to see, with colors painted on
It's getting hard to see, hate colors hate it all
Hate colors hate it all, Hate colors hate you all
It's getting hard to see with the colors painted on

Started with a rhyme from old ancient times
Decedents of warlocks
Witches with I'll glitches
Children of the matrix be hittin' them car switches
Seen some Virgin Virgos hanging out with Venus bitches...

This has to be the best rendition of Bach's masterpiece originally written for the violin after the death of his wife. On the guitar the piece has a new meaning. You can just feel the anguish and sorrow he must've been going through. If you aren't moved to tears, then you have no soul.

I don't know if this version, Segovia's, or John Freely does it the best. Depending on my mood I'll listen to any of them.

Danil Trifonov's Brahms Chaconne in D Minor for left hand is the best piano. Hillary Hanh's is best on violin.

"On one stave, for a small instrument, the man writes a whole world of the deepest thoughts and most powerful feelings. If I imagined that I could have created, even conceived the piece, I am quite certain that the excess of excitement and earth-shattering experience would have driven me out of my mind," Brahms.

Wont be that long before this thread celebrates it's 10 year anniversary.

Back in July I got a job where I am driving about 10hrs a day. I thought I would fill the time with the million podcasts I like, but I find that music and driving just go together too well. Problem is I've become sick of the 200 or so songs on my USB stick.

I've tried all the streaming services and they are all crap IMO. Youtube seems to do the best job and guessing what I like, but then it just plays the same stuff over and over. However, it did lead me to this gem.

Mike Patton project. Very old school thrashy yet manages to also sound fresh. I like this entire album.

My new car came with Sat radio. I have to say I'm not all that impressed with the metal stations. It's just Slayer and Metallica and Pantera over and over. They play a fair amount of new stuff too, but most of it is bland. Anyway, there is one band I noticed in the mix and ended up liking most of their catalog.

Finally, desperate for new stuff, I turned to my personal collection. I have hundreds of albums downloaded that I've never once listened too. I navigated to a random folder and clicked on this song. Again, I ended up liking most of their catalog.

I love the entire D minor Partita, the Chaconne being the 4th movement of the piece. I just played that in recital last year (on violin). It is very different on guitar, and I like your choice of instrumentalists. I started classical guitar a couple of years ago, and my teacher is also one of my favorite guitarists that happens to specialize in Bach. Check out the first Bach movement and let me know your thoughts...



Jason is also a gifted arranger, I love this -

I like it, but the Chaconne portion just sends shivers down your spine. Which classical guitar do you have? Mine is a 1970 made in Sweden Goya GG-17.

Are you sure there's four movements? I thought there were five. My second favorite is the 3rd, Sarabande.

I don't play well at all. But I do read music because of being in choir for over 30 years. For the longest time I was a second tenor to parts of first tenor, but now I can't do it, and my voice changed a few years ago to a lyrical Baritone. I've got I guess close enough pitch and can get within 3 cents of a note without reference note.

This is the only video I could find which best showed all the movements on guitar, but I don't like it as much as Ben's. This guys playing is just too clinical for me.
