On Tap

Tell me, what would breaks in hectic weeks be, without youtube? In case you have never seen Stanley Jordan, here he is in all his dazzling virtuosity. Playing everything from

Eleanor Rigby (the Beatles) through Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin), and then, just to show he has the range, Now's the Time (Charlie Parker) through The Lady in my Life (Michael Jackson). It's not quite what Miles did with Human Nature, but seriously -- did you ever think a guitar could be played like this?

Seriously? And speaking of prodigies, have you heard of Quinn Sullivan? Playing The Thrill is Gone and While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and even dueting with Buddy Guy? Not your average eight-year old, for sure.

Treat yourself. Click through.

Now if you will excuse me, I am going to strangle myself with my D string.
