My guitar journey is unexpectedly taking me into the realm of folk and classical songs, so I was wondering if anyone else either played or listened to any folk or classical music. After reading on this one website, can't remember which one though...a-hard-days-night-george-10, that Sir Paul based Blackbird off J.S. Bach's Bouree in E minor, I immediately proceeded to learn it myself and was struck with that familiar feeling of 'oh yeah, that song.'

That's a good one, check it out, you'll remember it, but Greensleeves is my favorite to play, check it out, you'll know. Also I love Irish/Scottish folk songs, I'm trying to learn this one called Jock O'Hazeldean that has a really beautiful melody.

Vivaldi, Guitar Concerto in D, 2nd Mvt

 a-hard-days-night-ringo-8This has always been and will always be one of my favorite pieces of classical music. To me, it is perfect for the guitar.

I don't know much about names of classical music, but I love …

 

Bach Brandenburg Concerts

 

Tchaikovsky – Violin concerto

 

Bach – Prelude (Unacompannied cello suite no. 1 suite)

 

Mozart – The Magic Flute

 

Tchaikovsky – 1812

 

I can say I enjoy Mozart and Tchaikovsky a lot, also I love ballet and opera.

 

Edit : Folk music. I love trova. It's the equivalent of folk in Latinoamerica. My favorite singers are :

 

Mercedes Sosa.

Joan Manuel Serrat

Pablo Milanes

the young Amaury Gutierrez

the late Facundo Cabral

the diva Tania Libertad (listen to this song, it gives goosebumps, it's about the poet Alfonsina Storni who commited suicide drowning herself in the sea)

And the great Silvio Rodriguez. I disagree with his politic views about Cuba, but his music is just amazing. I was going to see him live in the Plaza de la Revolucion but I had to come back to Mexico.

Toccata and Fugue in D Minor -Bach 

I always thought a doorbell with that music would be cool at Halloween.

Von, you're probably the one to ask about this, but, have you beard of City And Colour? Probably my favourite folk artist. That is, other then Nick Drake. God, it like my brother is posting today. I'm seriously just naming his type of music. And, Von, I ask you: What's the opening day of the NHL?
