...then check this out.

Martin Tallstrom - Foggy Mountain Breakdown

So far, I have LOVED everything I've played by him. Reminds me of Leo Kotke, back in the day.

Check out his version of A Whiter Shade of Pale or Shuffle Rag.

Holy heck! That's unbelievable.

It seems to me that discovering new music is a lot like making new friends, which is one of the best parts of life.

Jack, I was just thinking of you this morning as I pondered how much I continue to enjoy Lake Street Dive thanks to your introduction. Now, here you are, again.

Thanks, Jack. You brightened my day.

Thanks Jack, that's awesome!

I agree with you Tom, I've "discovered" some incredible musicians thanks to some of the members here. Jonn Gomm is another amazing act someone posted here a while back, amazing.

WOW! Very cool, Adrian. As a former guitar player, I find myself wondering how often he breaks a string doing all the detuning and retuning. That can really be tough on strings. It's also not easy to do and he really does it well, hitting the right pitches very quickly.

Thanks Jack, Adrian. Great stuff.

Those two guys make it looks so easy, I'm pretty sure I hate them.

"I just took all my guitars outside and burned them after watching this! lol Fine job sir :)"
