    Taggart! I'm glad you're tagging it! I already used this video in a "Classical Music" thread I started,
    saying these are the notes Beethoven used, but is this classical music.
    You are correct in adding it here, even if this girl is shown to be a solo artist.
    After watching the video a couple of times, I noticed there is a second guitar in the mix,
    and I see her as looking up and over as a way to co-ordinate or make sure they are still together,
    whether she's playing along with another live guitarist or a pre-recorded soundtrack.

    I logged out, and got thinking about my "BABYMETAL", why I'm here so fast after your reply.
    When I talk about Gordon Lightfoot, one of the biggest Canadian musical stars, and local for me,
    talking about John Belushi and Robin Williams might look more like sensational name-dropping than a personal narrative.
    Dan Ackroyd, the other half of The Blues Brothers with John Belushi, grew up a half hour away from here.
    It was the local bands King Biscuit Boy and Crowbar who wrote the r'n'b songs they used in their movies.
    That's why my talking about them in my life here had more impact than global readers in this forum.

    Taggart! If you are ex-Glascow, a Glaswegian, I'm tagging you as being Scottish somehow, if not Gaelic speaking.
    I know that gives you a, uh, highlander, above Hadrians' Wall perspective on the rest of the human race.
    My mothers' father served a seven year sign-painting apprenticeship in Glascow and Edinburough. (eden-burra)
    So I really know.
    What do you think about this young girl playing a Beethoven piece without using sheet music?
    I'm saying it's an evolution of the human brain, how musicians have heard so much classical music in their lives,
    it's coming as easy to them as three-chord rock and roll came to the first electric rock and country musicians.

    I thought this evolutionary concept, and a request for a new thread, might attract some interest. It has.
    At first, I thought that my best laid thread of music and men, was aft a gang a-gley.

    When effects pedals allowed electric guitarists to promote demonic tones, satanic sounds,
    taking them past hard rock into heavy metal, I was calling it heavy mental.
    It still weighs heavy on my mind.

    This event demonstrates the basic approach to heavy mental guitar, and that's speed.
    I know it takes more than one musician to make a rhythm, or music, as a form of communication.
    The fact there can be such a large outdoor event with a guitar playing, sorry, shredding contest,
    without even drums and bass to play off of, really says it all, but I'll keep commenting.

    The production, with a name in the bottom left hand corner, says it's a music experience.
    As a Jimi Hendrix freak, that also helps to bring down more heaviness on my brain,
    if I went there expecting to hear musicians playing with contestants jamming with them.
    I won't comment on the fashion sense of the emcee, other than to say he is very heavy himself,
    in every way he can display.
    I really don't want to describe how heavy mental artists are looking like new demonic beings, more than punk and goth.
    The fact that local governments insist on a heavy law enforcement presence at heavy mental events,
    has made the bigger bands stage their own concerts on private land, what further separates them from ordinary mankind.

    I'm seeing this as rigged, just how he talks about the entrants, being more excited about the twelve year old,
    and calling him a homey, a big code word for all those locals.
    At the end, instead of just calling out his name as he does for the first two contestants,
    he's shouting at the audience to vote for him.
    I wouldn't be surprised if this was a side-show for a motorcycle or monster truck event.

    What I'm saying about the evolution of the human musical mind is only obvious here,
    a twelve year old boy playing rock star lead guitar in a way nobody was doing in the early sixties,
    unless you saw Michael Fox in "Back the to Future" and it's playing with your mind right now.
    Just over five minutes.

    Symphonic-Electric and the electronics that can be used also include laser-light holograms.
    This video and the comments of the people who were there are more than enough.

    The previous video that is no longer available was "The Beatles in Budokan",
    a 28 minute live performance from 1966. I see comments saying only the audio is on now.

    I'm referencing this video more for the fact that the Beatles start with a Chuck Berry style song.
    "Rock and Roll Music"... yeah... if you want to dance with me... even if I want some of that modern jazz.

    It was bound to happen when rock stars and symphony orchestras collide.
    That's because the conductor doesn't have any control over the lead guitarists' volume.

    It doesn't even look as if Mr Magle or Krummhorn come here very often.

    I am also puzzled as to why you've put a thread with the same title in the Classical Music Forum on MIMF and seemed to be copying your posts over. a couple of days ago.

    Surely if you want a new forum for a specific topic, it's best to show that you respect the existing Forum Titles?
    Noticed that, too. So I merged the two threads into one thread and deleted the (then) duplicate postings.

    I get here when I can - being an administrator on TC takes an enormous amount of time as I also reply to emails from members or prospective members about the forum.

    I am also a webmaster for a busy professional organization of organists, as well as publicity chair for the organization. These things along with my church position as an organist/pianist for a very large ELCA Lutheran church here keeps me busy most days of the week.

    Of course I have a wife, a house, and two cats that also need my attention.

    We would like to oblige with additional sub-fora when appropriate - right now with dwindling membership and/or site inactivity, it doesn't make any sense. Hopefully after things pick up we can look further into adding specific sub-fora for various subject matter.

    Oh! I've been wondering if I'd get an admin response to creating a new forum.
    Thank you Krummhorn! I see what you're saying about duplicate postings,
    and won't do that again.
    Thanks for not blabbing about me using a new member name so I could be two people here,
    duplicating myself, trying to pump up the membership and my own threads.
    "sub-fora", nice, a new term for me!
