Happy 4th of Advent and Merry Christmas 🙂

Hollywood Hills

my latest addiction:

No I don’t wanna leave
but I must keep moving ahead
’cause my life belongs to the other side
behind the great ocean’s waves

Viva la Mainstream !

I was lucky to hear these guys live the other day 🙂
…but I am too lazy to write a review 😛

Bananafishbones – Easy Day feat. Franka Potente

“It’s like dancing in the sun
Having trouble having fun
Having anything you wish to come
then it finally smiles your way
And you have an easy day
It’s time to have an easy day”


Chris Merritt – Virginia is for Hoverers (part 1)

I have never been that much of a Chris Merritt fan, but i do like his latest album “Virginia is for Hoverers” and I think 6US$ for the full album (12 tracks) is a fair deal 🙂    Buy it here.

My favourite track is “Another World”. Make sure you check it out, because there is a nice surprise waiting for you. I am so glad he didn’t re-record it 😉

Pachelbel’s “Canon in D Major” on E-Guitar (video)

 Johann Pachelbel’s “Canon in D Major”  is one of the most recognized classical compositions. I’m sure everyone knows the original arrangement by Pachelbel. It is a piece of chamber music written for 3 violins and basso continuo. 

In the following video you can see another quite astonishing arrangement by JerryC. (C ?? He must be a relative of mine….) It slightly reminds me of the times when I was a school kid and played Bach on my acoustic guitar  (nah…I did not get anywhere near this proficiency LOL !)

The guitarist is Jeong-Hyun Lim from South Korea and his online alias is funtwo.

I really enjoy this arrangement and I hope so do you 😀
