I want to save the Earth,
but this is written on a piece of paper.
Blue ink between blue lines, that's all I need
To think freely
I love climbing trees,
and I don't want to cut them down
But the axe is all that keeps money in this town now
I don't want to carve stone 'cause that stays forever
Don't want to draw in sand 'cause that's kicked away
Don't want to burn wood 'cause I'll burn my finger
A feather and inkwell are all I need to say what I have to say...
I'll bike instead of drive and eat local vegetables
All in the name of keeping Antarctica cold... for the penguins
But I'll never succumb to saving our planet
If that means giving up papyrus and parchment and pen
Here's me performing it with banjo, guitar and vox.

Hey all. it's been a while. If you like, check these two solo guitar pieces of mine out. Nothing fancy on the site, just the mp3s available for streaming and enjoyment. Recorded at the push of a button and some unnecessary fiddling at the radio station I work at.
Please let me know what you think.

Did she play any of her acoustic stuff?
One of my favorites.
This album is a fantastic surprise. I really thought Plant was done. I heard Gone Gone Gone on MUCHMUSIC of all things (Canada's MTV). I was blown away. Their voices compliment each other perfectly. They trade between melody and harmony effortlessly. You still get those famous Robert Plant wails, and a TIGHT band. Great album!

Lately I have seen
Pat Metheny & Brad Mehldau
All incredivble concerts, but Pat Metheny has to be the greatest musical genius ever to walk the earth

In the court of the crimson KIIIINGGGGGG
I think the album is fantastic, everything about it is great. Robert Fripp is a genius.
His shoulder is damp with blood
His feet soaked from the snow
There's a fire to warm him up just 2 miles away
But the fire in his heart is down to coals already
And he's a peacekeeper with the safety off.
He's a little mouse in a cobra's cage.
He's a small light in a sea of white.
Forced to be a martyr but he'll put up a fight
He's got a .22 in his pocket holster
A Swiss Army shoved down his boot
His best friend is hangin from his shoulder
He's got his M16 locked and ready to shoot
He's a small light in a sea of white
There's a riot of color in my mind
You catalysed it with your eyes
I used to see in black and white
But now I see the red lipstick from our last 'goodnight'
I've got a tattoo on the back of my hand
That says "You've got to do more than the best you can"
That's a paradox, and it's just for you
They make me feel as if I have a clue
Then a flame's triggered inside me
And then you flicker beside me
I need someone to guide me
Because I just don't know the way
You've started exuding everything that I hate
It's all just superficial what you contemplate today
I bet you wish your life was an utter mess
Then you'd bottle it up, just so you could impress
Then you flicker beside me
Don't really want you to guide me
But I need somebody's love.

I thought the entire Eagles tribute was awful. The Rascal Flatts singer is horrible! Underwood wasn't too bad, but the guy from the Rascal Flatts simply was not up to par.
James Blunt was pretty crappy as well.
I thought the best performance was the medley of Corrinne Bailey Rae, John Legend and John Mayer.

Tommy Emmanuel!! That's what I'm talking about, the man can do more with one acoustic than 3 other of the "top" guitarists can together

Violent Femmes, Muse, Killers, Vines, TOOL, should be a really good time!!!

The essence of rock, jazz, blues, and many other genres of music is the JAM! My favorite part of music, is just getting a groove going and playing what fits. At school we have coffee houses where people and their bands can play. Me and a couple other guys just get up and play whatever songs we know, and jam them out. Problem is, we're burning ou the song quickly, so we need ideas.
For those of you who don't know, a jamming on a song (I know the word is clichÃ©d, but it really is correct) is just taking it and improvising over the chord progression, really a lot of fun, spontaneous soloing.
Classic jam examples:
- Everything by the Grateful Dead and Allman Bros pretty much.
- Down by the river, Cowgirl in the sand etc. By Neil Young
- Anything live from Led Zeppelin
- Herbie Hancock
MTV Mighta been good back in the day, I couldn't tell you, but they now have shows that seriously have NOTHING to do with music. First they went from all music, then to shows that feature some musicians, and now none. Date MY Mom, Room Raiders . . . What is that. but Pimp My Ride and Cribs I am down with, those shows are sweet
