    For the guitar players here

    I used to listen to Leo Kottke back in the day. Was searching Youtube for some of his playing and came across Josh Turner. Talk about a young Leo.
    If you know Kottke's older stuff (6 and 12 String) you need to see this kid play.

    Sorry, no bike content other than the title of this Kottke tune:

    Wow, kid's really good, thanks for posting. I wonder how many people notice his mom starting to come into the room in that first video.

    There's a lot of talented guitar players out there. I could listen to flat picking all day, so with some more Youtube searching I found this: Jake Workman on his way to becoming the 2010 Texas Flatpicking champion:

    I came across a jazz guitar forum and the players there were discussing practicing flat picking to improve their jazz soloing. Who to listen to, the OP asked. Tony Rice's name came up more than anyone else and one member posted up this vid. An example of someone flawlessly playing something really difficult and making it look easy.

    Since I posted up that vid above of Tony Rice I've found out this: while everyone else on this thread is still in their prime, Tony, bless his flat picking heart, considered the best bluegrass guitarist in his day, well, the arthritis and tendonitis took away his hands and a throat condition took away his ability to sing, as well as talk like you and me. It's been years since he's been able to perform.

    The vid above comes from an instructional video he made to teach other aspiring guitarists, which is why it's filmed the way it is (the way I love to watch his playing). It brings a tear to my eye to see him in his prime playing this Norman Blake tune.

    The second coming of Jimi Hendrix.

    I saw Hendrix twice, back in the day, once at Red Rocks. Then I saw Randy Hansen live after Hendrix died. Me and my friends, who had all seen Hendrix together, looked at each other and said "Holy Sh!T". Hendrix's father went backstage at a Hansen concert and called him Jimi.

    Tera Melos you're gonna love this or maybe hate it but...

    Just thought I'd throw this out to you. This is 12 minutes of scripted playing, it's not just made up on the spot. Check out the interplay between all three musicians especially the drummer. Nick Reinhart, the guitar wizard, is a master of pedals. Here we go:

    This is about as far from Josh Turner as you can get but what the heck

    Helmet Primitive, at The Ogden Theater in Denver, 1994. The guy who video'd this concert was plugged directly into the band's soundboard.

    Again, something different

    This is described as "math rock drumming" (I hope I got that description right). Zach Hill on drums. See if you can figure out the time signatures on this one

    Prong these days

    Tommy Victor has been going strong since the beginning. Still going strong. "One Outnumbered" above? 1994. This track? 2014.

    On the off chance some of you out there have not heard this...or even if you have

    I like to revisit Alvin Lee shredding it at Woodstock. Take the 11 minutes to listen to all of it

    That was awesome, thanks. I played piano for 5 years as a kid, I got a little into that type of playing, it was what I liked, but as you said, it didn't take. But it did give me a great background in music. My daughter can slay on the piano but she is purely a classical player.

    Yup. Fully wound out in top gear down some of those straights. Evenly matched bikes, Martin just couldn't pass him. I bet the guys they were passing thought they were going fast.

    The only race where the power of those super bikes is fully used. It's a wonder why that race has the largest number of deaths in all of motor sports.

    Never been to IOM but have done crazy shit like this on dozens of public roads for well over 25yrs. Never have hit the 2-ton mark(200mph) though. Since i've stopped riding i rekon it's not to be, but i sure lived for the rush time and again to my measly 175mph verified.

    For the motorheads here---better than a cup of coffee

    Here's a POV vid with Michael Bader driving his V8 powered BMW Z4 around Zurburbring. He gets out-horsepowered by some in front of him but he keeps up with everyone on the corners.

    Road and Track called listening to this V8 "better than a cup of coffee".

    Sometimes I just want a beat in the background while working at my desk

    After a photo shoot I'll come back to my desk and be there for hours and hours, processing my shots. It's fun but tedious. I just want to dial in some beat in the background to keep me going. To wit:



    This kind of music always seems to be accompanied by images like this (actually the next one) but that's not what the music is about, for me, it's about the beat. This vid is over an hour long. Click on it if you have some long tedious task to do, it'll keep you going.

    40 minutes of Old School Deep House

    I worked up in Summit County all summer doing my photography. This Deep House Mix (and others) got me through the days and days of photo editing I had to do in the Breck/Frisco libraries.

    Never caught this thread in the past. Great memory. I saw Randy Hansen's 'Hendrix Experience' 3 times back in the early 80's, the first 2 at a couple different small clubs in SoCal. The dude was absolutely mind-blowing and with me growing up immersed in Hendrix' music in the 60's & '70's thanks to my much older brothers, this guy really "nailed it" well. The 3rd time I saw him he played at CalPoly Pomona. He started his usual routine and did maybe 3 or 4 Hendrix songs in usual fashion and had the house rockin' and then suddenly between songs, stripped himself of all of the Hendrix-style clothing, wig, etc and rebirthed himself right there on stage and started doing nothing but his own original works. Not that he sucked as a musician but he sucked in comparison to what we were all there for that night. His stuff just didn't resonate and after a few songs, we realized he wasn't going back into his Hendrix routine so we up and bailed...as did a whole bunch of the huge theatre full of people following suit. I never heard what became of him after that as I wasn't about to pay coin to go through disappointment again. He could probably make some big bucks if he brought 'Experience' back in this day and age.

    Randy is still doing Hendrix, maybe he learned his lesson at that third show you saw. There's plenty of vids of him "being Hendrix" up till the present. He's getting old but he still has it.

    The first show me and my crew saw him was up in Boulder at the Glenn Miller Ballroom (if it's still called that). The band was on stage, where is Hansen? There was dry ice or maybe a smoke machine filling the lower level of the stage. The music started (Purple Haze) and it turned out he was down in that layer of smoke. He slowly rose up from the smoke, as if from the dead, to a stunned audience, me included.

    As you remember, the first time seeing Randy Hansen doing the Hendrix Experience is truly a mind-blowing experience. He seems to play faster putting more songs together
    quicker these days, like he knows his time is running out. That's what I like about the video I posted above, he just slowly recreates the whole Hendrix vibe. Notice how at the end of the song he just lets the final cords play out, not going nuts with an extended solo. I never get tired of watching this vid.

    End of the day, working to this

    This kind of music, to me, is just a state of mind, I just sort of sub-consciously fall into the beat and work on

    Pre-Superbowl Melodic Progressive House mix

    Solid all the way through. The last track might be my favorite of all the tracks of all the mixes I've put up here. Enjoy.

    Since You've Been Gone

    n/t

    Sorry, couldn't embed the video, just the link. I'll try something else later.

    edit: let's try this again. A Rainbow tune I couldn't get out of my head while trying to go to sleep last night. Guess I've always wanted to sing like Graham Bonnet

    How did xcguy get into EDM (Electronic Dance Music) in the first place?

    So I'm in the gym doing ab work in an empty workout classroom, just me and my situps. The usual gym music was going on in the background but I found myself looking up at the speaker overhead asking "what is this, sounds familiar yet..."

    I went up to the front desk afterwards and asked the guy "what was that tune a few minutes ago?" He says "a Rick Astley remix". First time I'd heard the word "remix" referring to music. Went home, Youtubed Rick Astley Remix and found this:



    After researching "remixes" I found out how the remixers will reduce the track to just the beat at the end to allow compilers of these tracks to blend in one track to another.

    Which led, it's true, to this video



    Then I learned about Shane Collins and Soundcloud and the world-wide network of remixers and compilers of remixes like you've seen here.

    OK, lesson over, back to work.

    Another two hour mix, from Shingo Nakamura. Japanese EDM mix? Why not

    Well, he's Japanese but the music is world wide. Just what I needed for today's editing (and two more like it)

    Shane Collins videomix

    Something different. Adding videos to his music mix is something few people do on Youtube. And...bonus...they're office approved!

    It's 5 am and I'm working to this

    Another Shane Collins videomix. I've listened/watched most of these from the beginning, it's great to revisit some of them now (if your internet is a bit sluggish you might want to pause this to let it buffer for awhile before letting it play)



    I have to say that when Hannah, the Estonian singer with the magical voice, starts singing around 1:19 I drop all work and just stare at the ending video.

    I'm in the middle of a long tedious edit, listening to this

    Well, the video I had here went missing so I looked for another one. The one I'm linking to this time went missing for a long time as well, but just came back last week. All the Youtube comments rave about how it's perfect to work to so we'll see

    I've been watching this guy's channel for "Drummer Reactions" videos. Yeah, he has quite a few Matt Garstka vids but you've seen him. This one, well, you can tell Joshua Crawford likes what he's seein'



    I don't work to these vids, I watch 'em

    And last, backcountryskiing and snowboarding near Berthoud Pass Current Creek etc

    I do a lot of summer hiking up there. As far as I know, each of these runs required hiking through the powder up to the top, the very definition of "earning your turns"

    Another Hum track from their next album "Downward is Heavenward"

    A lot of water under the bridge since Hum CDs were in my constant rotation. I first heard them at the water tank below Porcupine off Salt Flats Rd. I hooked up with some riders who had one of their CDs playing as they got ready to ride. A memorable ride, for sure, but that's another thread.

    OK, last Hum for awhile

    I can't believe Youtube still has this up but this is even before "You'd Prefer An Astronaut". Hum, the very early years

    I'm in the middle of The Mother of All Edits

    A week of working in Utah, shooting like a sumbiatch morning noon and night...and now the processing at my computer. Yikes!

    This calls for two hours of Blood Groove & Kikis

    I'm finishing up my latest computer build

    With building a PC, even if you do it all the time which I don't, it's always something. Tearing my hair out for a few hours now, time to back off and listen to some more Hum

    Pure Balearic House

    Specifically from Ibiza, an island off the coast of Spain known for its nightlife. I keep remembering snippets of mixes I've listened to in the past but lost track of. In a recent Youtube search I stumbled across a whole new area of House music. When I played this one all I could say was "holy crap"
