oh but honey!  you have One Ring Zero out there - you gotta check them out!  i just love them... we caught them at a book event and were hooked!

eek - premie post!  meant to say - dunno just were you are on the east coast but there are a whole lotta things going on out there.  NYC - easiest thing is check out the Village Voice of course.  for other stuff... i would check the websites of things you hear something about or whatever - like C2B3 played a few places back east late Sept/early Oct.
Peace.

Oh and the boogy man song too that she did with the guys. hee hee loved the Sitar even though at first they had trouble with the volume. Buckehead did the whole Star Wars medly here too, the crowd went crazy. Did the chicken make an appearence?  Thanks for the glowing report oh and telling about what songs were played. Mystery solved!

My favs... Buckehead. The lyrics are really great! What a way to tell the story. My favorite line goes something like, his posture is fighting with his height, or no it is, in rebellion with his height. Ha ha ha that is interesting to me. Sorry I am weird.
Have to agree on Tyranny of the hunt. That really helped get my heart rate up on the treadmill at the gym. Elephant Ghost no question a fav. I think it\'s Junior that is another one, the guitar starts really fast, I like that. I have enjoyed all of it. Although I do have to say it all sounds much better live.

Not sure about Mason Williams, will have to check that out, but George Winston, I have been following him for years. When he did the soundtrack for The Velveteen Rabbit, the one with Meryl Streep as the narrator, 20 years ago I was hooked! It is my absolute favorite story. He is a wonderful solo pianist. He plays Guitar too but the piano is his thing. Very mellow, meditative piano playing. A couple years ago he did a tribute to the doors. I was all over that. Still listen to that probably once a week. Here check out his site,

http://www.georgewinston.com/index.html

and next time you go to the record Shoppe go to the the new age section or world music, however they have it categorized, and take a listen if they have a station. There are listening capability on his site but Unfortunately you can\'t order from him directly, you have to use Amazon or something, but his stuff is in almost every record store I have been too. His new one that I just picked up is "Montana - a Love story" the title alone was enough for me. I love Montana! If they have The Doors tribute which is called Night divides the day, Get it! The artwork on the cover by itself will draw you in. Wish I had a print of that. I will also recommend Forest. He has a full classical Orchestra, Phenomenal! Anyway, take a look.

Winston is great for piano - and i love Mason Williams, have some old vinyl of his - Dad got me hooked via the Smothers Brothers, one of the few TV shows he liked to watch, once we finally got him to buy a TV.

but...

the person who played guitar more sweetly than most others would have to be "Tom" Jobim, Antonio Carlos Jobim.  trippingly easy, beautifully melodic... sigh...  so pretty.

his style was a world away from Buckethead - who is a master shredder in my eyes.  their styles are quite divergent - and yet, there is something in the grace of BH\'s fingering at times that reminds me of Jobim.
Peace.

No Chris, you not, six degrees of separation is totally fair game, plus I love Classical Gas. Remember the Video that went with it?

gkg

grab away, Sweetie - and try to track the video - well worth it.
Peace.

classical gas is hot
so hard driving and then that spiralling spinout at the end yes !
