Is there anything better than J.S. Bach's Orchestral Suite #2 (in B minor)? Heard it all the way through yesterday and it made my day! The finale, by the way, is my cell phone "ring tone". Sometimes, I just let the phone ring.

Oops!  I meant to write, descending/ascending eighth notes, not quarter notes.

John Mayer, wow!  He's really good and thanks for turning me on to him.  I’m already pasting some of his other performances from you tube.  Thanx ag’n!

His name makes me think of John Mayall.  I finally got to see Mayall at the Chance in Poughkeepsie back in '85 or thereabouts.  Skinny, silver haired, senior citizen, he did "Rocket in My Pocket," variation of a theme and brought the house down.  There’s been so many great guitarists, from Montgomery, to Hendrix, to Mayer.  When you get to that level, there’s no such thing as, “better,” just different styles. 

I was a devout Deadhead for thirty years but I've seen a lot of other shows as well.  I saw Hendrix in the Hollywood Bowl and the Doors at the Sea Witch, (a small club on Sunset Strip) to name just a few...  

The most memorable guitarist I ever saw was Joe Satriani.  I've seen guitarists with a more conventional style, but when it comes to raw talent, he's simply unbelievable!  I saw him in a small club in Denver a few years back.  He had about six guitars on the stage and was constantly changing them.  I would have thought it impossible to play ascending/descending quarter notes that fast. 

This clip is a live performance with his whole band.  When I saw him he was on stage with just a snare drummer.  Each set was like experiencing an amazing forty minute guitar solo.

Though one of my fave guitarists at the moment is John Mayer, who plays a lot like Hendrix in some of his songs.
