What music are you listening to right now?

Talk about things that are not necessarily related to music or the guitar.

I'm going to be an absolute rebel here as I'm currently listening to AC/DC Live at River Plate :twisted:
Absolutely terrible behaviour!

"Syro" by Aphex Twin. It might be my favourite electronic music album from the 2010s.

Rhiannon Giddens: In my opinion, one of best, most talented, and most versatile female voices to come along in some time, and I love her eclectic mix of material -- old timey mountain music, blues, folk, spirituals, country, and even some pop standards. Singin' the blues, she can out-bessie Bessie Smith, and on country tunes she more than gives Patsy Cline a run for her money. On top of that, Rhiannon's a damn fine fiddler and banjo player, accompanying herself in performances steeped in tradition that pulse with authenticity and a deep understanding of roots music. I also enjoyed her former group, the Grammy award winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, who can be heard in many outstanding performances on Youtube. I guess it's clear I really dig this gal!

i am listening to a lot of Andrew York as well, but especially Home, which has been quite gratifying to work on myself.

Dream Theater's Once in a livetime

Track Take the time is almost symphonic to my mind.

I was just watching a Roland Dyens concert on YouTube. It's a real shame that he is no longer with us.

"String Madness," a cd I bought at Merlefest. Bob Applebaum, Mitch Greenhill, and Peter Spellman on mandolin,guitar, and 12-string guitar, playing some excellent acoustic instrumental music. I look forward to hearing them every year at Merlefest!!!

"String Madness," playing, "Wayfaring Stranger." They played it at Doc Watson's funeral.

Well, I tried to listen to this, but I had to turn it off! His Smallman guitar, which in my mind is already problematic, sounds like the world's tinniest banjo! I'm not sure how the engineer achieved such horrible sound. A pity since the playing is good. Now, to be fair, this is a low-resolution MP3 (111 mbps instead of the normal 320 mbps, which is bad enough!), so that might affect the sound, but probably not to such a degree as to render it unlistenable. I suppose I shouldn't complain since it was free, though.

I just tried some of his videos on youtube. Actually, his playing needs variety in articulation and attack... maybe it's the guitar... the tone is powerful and sustaining, but uniformly bland.

Now I understand why so many on the forum either love or hate the Smallman sound. I heard John Williams live in concert in 1989, and he certainly didn't sound like this.

I think he was playing an especially bad Smallman! He has since switched to a Jean-Luc Joie (or at one time had done so), and it sounded infinitely better!

Chopin's Op. 10 etudes. And the two Op. 62 nocturnes. Never get tired of Chopin.
