Elegy No. 1 in D Major

Elegy No. 1 in D Major

by Miyung Sung

This is not a cello...It's a double bass...The lowest bowed instrument in modern orchestra...Remember how I talked about passion and natural ability being what I admire most in a player?...This gal knows this instrument...And she loves this instrument...She would make any composer proud...Elegy is one of Bottesini's most renown pieces....Have a listen :)

Hello Darlin'

Hello Darlin'

by Conway Twitty

Happy Birthday Conway Twitty...He is one of the older Country Music Artist that I can still listen to...Seems like Country/Western artist back in the day wrote in a more simple manner..And straight from the heart...Country music today isn't Country...It's usually more like Pop..Rock ..Or some kind of Mainstream B.S...There are a few that still pull from the older stylings of Country...But not a lot..Conway would have been 82..R.I.P....

Mirror in Your Eyes

I really like this song...Hard driving riffs..With lighter passages during the verses....The vocals remind me of early Evergrey...A lot of emotion in the way he approaches the lyrics...The key change @ the end is subtle and genius (You may not even notice it)...Another great song by a band that never really made it :/ ....Have a listen :)
