Discovered this woman on Facebook, I've never heard of her, some of you may have. She is incredible.

Well I wasn't keen but I thought my wife might like to go and see the new Mary Poppins film so I asked her last night if she'd like to go. She said she had wanted to for a while but didn't think I'd want to go so hadn't mentioned it.
It was brilliant, took me back to being a kid again and gave some tears, maybe recent life events had an influence.

If you fancy a film that isn't heavy, just good fun it's well worth it. It may seem a strange thing to say as Julie Andrews created the persona of the original but, Emily Blunt not only nailed it but she took it to the next level.

Go and enjoy wink.gif

Hello folks,

Okay, this is one of my all-time favourite pieces of music.

There are three notes in it, followed by another three contrasting notes that are performed in such a way that even to this day, 30+ years later, they still make me catch my breath. What is Mr Satriani doing here in a theoretical musical context? He builds the piece up and then BOOM, pulls it right back into sentimentality, poignancy etc with those six notes.

The first three notes of the six are the ones that actually make me hold my breath and the second three make me release it.

The six notes in question happen at the 10 second mark in this clip:

And if you watch the whole thing, so as to get the full impact, they happen at 2:27 in this YT video:

This man has a very special skill for creating melody and this piece is one that, along with Surfin With The Alien and Summer Song, I always use to introduce people to him.
