No, but I searched for Amy in Dingle and it came up with several videos. She was so talented. Had a lot of passion.September 17, 2019 at 11:31 pm #28404

Still no luck, Reg.September 18, 2019 at 7:10 pm #28408September 18, 2019 at 8:52 pm #28409
Check this out. Singing and strumming the bass is my friend of 15 years. Her band just released their first single and video.September 18, 2019 at 8:54 pm #28410
Also, @Reg, what is this Tor you speak of?September 18, 2019 at 10:37 pm #28412
Tor is basically a network of linked servers on the Internet that do not retain your data. It gets moved randomly to different servers so it is not easy to trace. Sometimes this means that you can access (say) YouTube videos that are blocked because of regional restrictions. Not always though. You can also change your modem\router DNS entries to those of another country and this often works. Example if you live in Europe you can use USA DNS for Netflix locally and this allows you to browse Netflix USA content not yet available in Europe.
I have helped set it up for atheists in parts of the Middle East where they would be in danger of being tracked. No history is left on their pc.
Tor is also used for access to the “Dark Web” which is a bad place to be unless you are talking about a revolution.September 18, 2019 at 10:51 pm #28413
I like that track by Cavern. 832 views when I opened it.September 18, 2019 at 10:51 pm #28414
Geez, this was 22 years ago…September 18, 2019 at 11:05 pm #28415
Yeah, Jody_Lee your friend’s song is killer, cool vocal effect and the guitars and drums are top notch ! Like the whole vibe of that. Keep us posted on them, please. Funny cuz I was working on a piano balled with my GF’s daughter. I wrote the music, but she wrote the words to this ending part. I did get one line in there, see if you can figure out which one, LOL.September 18, 2019 at 11:15 pm #28416
That’s awesome! My son plays piano. It’s one of my favorite instruments.

That’s great Jody. Hope he enjoys it. It can be trying at times. I supplement retirement by gigging around town, lots of demand for keyboardists. Other benefits too. For instance there was an old beautiful black piano off to the side in my hotel’s lobby in Venice. I had enough house wine in my system and started playing this tune from “Amelie” and when I looked up I had a dozen smiling female admirers.September 19, 2019 at 3:05 am #28418
My taste in music is very broad. Broad enough to include classical music. This piece is kind of jaw-dropping. Bach transcribed a Vivaldi concerto for four violins and orchestra, making a concerto for four harpsichords and orchestra. Now, I don’t know where you live, but consider the difficulty of just finding four harpsichords to bring together at the same time and place. If I owned one, it’d never leave my home. I’m pretty sure that here in Portland, gathering four instruments would be a practical impossibility. More likely cities like New York, London, Paris, Amsterdam, or Berlin. It’s not like most of us have gone into someone’s home and seen a harpsichord the way we might see a piano or guitar. And any symphony orchestra is going to have at least one (and probably two or more) pianos on hand, but not a harpsichord unless they perform a lot of baroque music.
Unlike the piano forte, whose name translates as “soft loud,” and responds proportionally to the energy applied by the player, the harpsichord has no dynamic range at all. Despite that disadvantage, the harpsichord has a certain kind of brittle, fragile beauty that the piano can’t approach.

I’ll never forget the day my teenage daughter told me “I don’t like jazz.” I laughed and said, “You haven’t heard enough jazz to even begin to say that.” I don’t think she’s changed her mind, but that’s because her taste in music doesn’t go far beyond pop and country. I’m a failure as a parent.
But to anyone wanting to know if there’s any jazz they might like, I would direct them to this 1966 recording by Chico Hamilton’s group.
Perhaps requiring a bit more sensitivity is Dexter Gordon’s rendition of You’ve Changed…
I’m sure one of the first exercises a young saxophonist has to do is run through some arpeggios, notes in a scale. Well, Dexter opens this piece with some arpeggios, but when played by a master…well, there’s a big difference.
