GMC Forum _ Bands and Guitarists _ Help Me List Some Of The Most Beautiful Music In The World

Posted by: Tuubsu Jul 14 2008, 09:51 PM

Day after day I just keep falling more for the Beautiful side of music, rather than just cool distortion riffs.

So, now I'm on a quest for composing. And I won't rest until I manage write a song SO beautiful, that even the hardest and cruelest of men will break into tears as they hear the sweet melodies of Tuubsu's masterpiece! mad.gif ......... laugh.gif

So, Let's gather up some gorgeus music to study and for the sheer pleasure of listening too, beautiful music, Any music style, Any instruments(no need for guitar), no matter how old or new, a possible link to youtube or some other video site would be great ofcourse, if possible.

Now it's hard to define Gorgeus music, it's a lot about opinion but I'll put couple of links for starters:

Paganini's sonata opus 3 number 6 in Em, by Oh Seung Kook
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn983PBvs88

"Secret Garden", by Oh Seung Kook
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfP9xBuys0o&feature=related

Connie Francis singing "I'll wait for you"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bgcrg1q7iqA

"Una Limosna por amor de dios", by Loana Gandrabur
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvL9xaUqZGA

I wish, I wish I could remember the name of the song which I heard in a classical guitar consert some time ago, it had a very long tremolo part in it, but I don't remember composer all I do is it was something about roses, but in spanish... unsure.gif

http://youtube.com/watch?v=O6txOvK-mAk - Moonlight Sonata without a doubt... Movement 1 here.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=p-sr175CMLg&feature=related - George Winston - Moon

I could list a few (or more) George Winston songs, but do the search yourself smile.gif

Posted by: Tuubsu Jul 14 2008, 10:56 PM

uuuhh... That Moonlight sonata is something special! smile.gif

George Winston was very nice! I looked at couple of others from him and this I really liked
"Rain"
http://youtube.com/watch?v=Uj6VLLa29zs&feature=related

All this piano reminded me of this:
Chopin "Nocturne in C# minor"
http://youtube.com/watch?v=YUIPN9_UOAs

Edit. Oh and
Johan Sebastian Bach "Air on a G-string" (Piano and Violin)
http://youtube.com/watch?v=qOVwokQnV4M

Gorgeus!

I'd say this is something of the most beautiful I've ever heard:

Here are a few I think are very beautiful:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hitAHKGqJZI&feature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtE0Y6CTQMQ&feature=related - I'm not much of a church goer but this song always makes me choke up.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL80hLMgL4k&feature=related - This was my Grandfathers favourite song and he use to sing this to me as a wee lass smile.gif This is just an instrumental of the song but it is a beautiful version with some great shots of Scotland.

There are a couple from Andrea Boccelli I wanted to add but for some reason youtube is acting screwy for me now. I'll add them later.

Maybe you mean "Recuerdos de la Alhambra"? Here´s the link: http://youtube.com/watch?v=AIzKsNIRrV4
A song that puts tears in my eyes is Lotus Feet. I love it. Steve Vai´s performance is so incredible! http://youtube.com/watch?v=6CfEaSmdtGU I just watched it... Has anybody got a handkerchief?

Anothe song I love is "In Sorrow´s Wake" by Andrew York. It´s really easy to play and it sounds awesome. http://youtube.com/watch?v=UPpsgHQ6P68

That´s my 2 cents. smile.gif

Cheers

No, it wasn't that... But I got it! I don't have any idea where the roses came from but, it was this here:

Augustin Barrios, "Un sueno en la floresta", played by John Williams:

This is actually one of the most beautiful performances I've heard. I like Jeff Buckley's version aswell.

Two songs come into mind...

http://youtube.com/watch?v=-3mfO5ubiIM, a man wo took the awesome theme of the Elderscrolls games Morrowind and Oblivion, and made a long piano medley. Just dim the lights, lean backwards, close your eyes and listen... It's so beautiful ^^

Also, it's not a "classical masterpiece", but I really wanna recommend http://youtube.com/watch?v=-3mfO5ubiIM. Perfection within music... My favorite song of all time!

Posted by: Tolek Jul 24 2008, 11:36 PM

Some other beautiful songs:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=0OMLoAtC9RY performed by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
http://youtube.com/watch?v=Gn5L5U92_54 performed by Connie Talbot. Very sweet! smile.gif
http://youtube.com/watch?v=OgGvml0cOKA performed by Jeff Beck. smile.gif

Andy Mckee - Rylynn

WELL IF YOU WANT SOMETHING TO LISTEN TO FOR A CHANGE MAY I SUGGEST SOME KEITH URBAN, YEAH THATS RIGHT A COUNTRY/POP ROCK ARTIST. THE MAN CAN WRITE, PLAY JUST ABOUT ANY INSTRUMENT AND HIS VOCALS ARE EXCELLENT. I HAD THE CHANCE TO SEE HIM IN CONCERT LAST SUMMER AND TO BE HONEST HE IS ONE HECK OF A GUITAR PLAYER.

ENJOY
