Ok, I know it's kinda off the subject line we was talking about but:



http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=dPgqfHYeI0Q


I don't want to hear any comments about my masculinity with this next song. It has calmed me down on many a bad day.





I have to tell the story behind me and classical violin. I used to hate classical music. Didn't understand it at all. About 5 or 6 yrs ago, I was having a lot of trouble sleeping. Didn't want to get started on any medication, so I was looking into breathing exercises and meditation. Nothing really worked. When I sleep, I have to have absolute quite, no tv or radio, nothing, since my military days. So, I was surfing the net one evening, came across a forum about classical music, searching for relaxing music. Someone had recommended to another person the Joshua Bell-Romance of the Violin, in which he played relaxing music on an original 1713 "Gibson" Stradivarius. I got the CD, didn't listen to it right away. Come home from work one day wore out, sit on the bed with my laptop, put the CD and headphones on and started surfing. Later that night when my wife come to bed, she woke me up. Fell asleep fast, and have been listening to it ever since. Has helped me go to sleep many a nite.

Just some more useless info, but if any of you fall into that category, I highly recommend that CD.

Hey brother, who am I to sit in the seat of judgement on you. However, I am going to have to have a confab with scelli about this.

That vid was great! Never seen anything like that, was that an electric bagpipe of some type??

When you have that confab, don't use that Air Force thing against me, that might be two strikes!

That was Davey Spillane playing a full set of Irish Illeann(elbow) Pipes. Nothing electric about them except the sound. Notice...he is pumping a bellows under his left arm. There is an air line the runs from the bellows around his gut and to the bag under his right arm. The bag is attached to the top of the chanter which supplies the sound.

That really is an amazing instrument.

Changing lines again, here is some more good music:







One of my favorite:

These are what I listen too, when I'm partaking in a little "spirits".

This is good stuff odie, really! I was raised on country music from the 50's and 60's. Dad and mom always had Patsy Cline, Acuff, Tubbs and many others playing. Hank Snow was a distant cousin. I think 49 times removed.

Hello scelli, there are songs like Carry On that never seem to wear out or get old. No kidding, at one time I had all the albums and for the life of me I can't remember what I did with them. Maybe my brother or sister took them??

The music is kind a like a time machine isn't it?

From their first Elektra album, which has sold 5 million copies since the initial release in 1967. Again, my LP copy sits in a walk-in closet gathering dust. One thing about this particular record always sticks with me: it was a heavy record, and by "heavy" I don't mean cool, groovy, far-out or all those other annoying 1960's adjectives. I'm referring to the actual weight of the record itself in comparison to the cheaper vinyl that most LP's were normally made of at the time.

I found myself humming this song so I posted it. How heavy is this album? Is it because its thicker?

Yes, it's thicker...almost twice the thickness of most of my other LP's.

How does it play on your turntable? Does it sound like the music has slowed down some what? To much weight for the torgue drive of the platter?

Haven't played the LP in well over 30 years, but spun it numerous times while in high school and never had a problem on my turntable. Actually, I very specifically recall how different the weight of their first album was in comparison to Waiting for the Sun (the third Doors LP record) which felt much lighter.

Do you still have a turntable these days. I used to have a realistic with a heavy platter and a strobe.
