@OGIONIK,
Classic Rock: If you haven't already, turn on to The Beatles, Van Morrison, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young.

As for pure guitarists, I enjoy a Brazilian guitarist named Bola Sete http://www.bolasete.com/ and a German named Ottmar Liebert.

Sitar music by Ravi Shankar and the more contemporary Ranjan Maharaj is excellent.

As for classical, name your mood, for me: Beethoven is the dark god, Mozart makes me feel studious, Debussey is devine, Bach supplies respite and religion, and Rachmaninoff ambition and courage.

Be sure to experience Jazz: Coltrane, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Louis Armstrong, Dizzie Gillespie, Charlie Parker.

Singers/songwriters: Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, James Taylor, Otis Redding, Eric Clapton, Jonie Mitchell

The Blues cannot be overlooked: BB King, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Albert King, Buddy Guy, and Albert Collins

A good place to start with opera is Luciano Pavarotti

Enjoy and let us know what you think

@OGIONIK,
There's a website I like that plays Gregorian chants continuously. I listen to it while working sometimes.

I'll post the link tomorrow.

BTW, you've seen the movie Bad Santa?

Some really great music in that, seriously.

Check out the websit that Robert turned us on to. They have a classical genre that you can explore while trying to discover your favorites before buying.

http://www.mixwit.com/

And, if you check out this topic that Robert started about it, you'll learn how to embed your mix tape here to share with others.

Here we go....

just click on Tune In. A voice will say "Radio Set"....then you'll have to click on Tune In again.

thank you. gregorian chants? is that what they are called?

i love epic peices, violins, chants, stuff that reminds you of gothic translyvania, or huge waves of orcs attacking a doomed stronghold, of the beauty of life, they mysteries of the dark..

@OGIONIK,
Oggy,

Did you see that video that Robert posted here?

http://able2know.org/topic/125724-1

That's something I think you would like too. You have to let it get past the first minute to know what it is about. So don't dump it after the first few notes.

@OGIONIK,
I haven't really played much poker this year (and I'm in Costa Rica now). Been busy with other work.

@OGIONIK,
Click the word MENU in the lower right corner of the cassette image and it displays a list of the tracks.

#7 was Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven


Great choices Robert.

It's what they are called now, though it's a bit of a misnomer. We could more accurately call it simply "chant," but because of common usage we're probably stuck with "Gregorian chant."
