Wow! GB.

I now know where to go with all questions concerning music.I think that's really cool to be able to appreciate all kinds of music.I do like Alison Krauss she has a great voice.I dont have any Allman bros, that was a great suggestion and Ill have to check them out on i tunes.You should really check these i pod shuffels out. They would probably hold your music library ten times over!!Just kidding.One terabyte of memory would be like 1000 shuffels would'nt it?Thats pretty cool.

I think you will really be impressed with The Allman Bros. Everyone knows their popular songs, but those do not do justice to their other less mainstream stuff. No to mention that live they are so much different than in studio. Both are good, but live is much better. That double album I recommended is an amazing collection of songs. The second disc is my favorite of the two, but both are great.

Another artist to check out is Bon Iver (pronounced Bon EE-ver). He is a singer/songwriter who has a very unique sound. He crafts his songs very carefully and with purpose and you can really tell that as you listed. His Album For Emma Forever Age is a masterpiece that I will be listening to until the day I die.

GB...

I won't quote your earlier post, because it take up too much space....

But I share your passion for music. Note my avatar.

Naming a favorite song is impossible.

My tastes are all over the map, but particularly leaning toward jazz, jazz fusion and vocal standards, lot of esoteric guitar stuff as well (think Jeff Back, Joe Satriani).

Not much country in the mix, rap/hip hop isn't on my radar at all, nor contemporary pop, although if I took the time to listen, I might find a few nuggets here and there.

Over the years I have owned a bunch of keyboards/synthesizers, currently have 4 guitars.

OK here are a few...

The Allman Brothers Band - Soulshine


The Tallest Man On Earth - The Gardener


Phish - Harry Hood. This is just the second half of the song. Youtube has a 10 minute limit and Harry Hood is often longer than that so it is broken up into two parts on the site, but I am only posting part 2.


Bon Iver - Stacks


Iron and Wine - Naked As We Came
http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...&search=Search

Grateful Dead - Peggy-O
http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...snum=0&spell=1

Medeski Martin & Wood - Bubblehouse - This is a long one, but try to listen to the whole thing if you can.


John Scofield (with Medeski Martin & Wood) - A Go Go

Here is another Medeski Martin & Wood tune. This one is a million % different from the other tune by them I posted above. this is from their kids album. They decided that they wanted to create a kids album that appealed not just to kids, but to adults to. Their idea was that "kids" music was dumbed down for the kids when it didn't need to be. Kids are perfectly capable of enjoying "adult" music. With that in mind they set out to create a kids album that adults would not cringe at every time the kids requested it. I can say without a doubt that they succeeded. My kids LOVE this album and so do I.

This first song is called Lets Go Everywhere and is just a very fun catchy song.


And this song is just a great story that my daughter absolutely can not get enough of. This song is called The Squalb. The video is not an official video. It was created by a fan, but the music is straight from the album.

This band is called Yonder Mountain String Band. They are considered NewGrass music (bluegrass, but more modern). They have an incredible energy. The quality of this recording is not the best, but it will give you a taste. It takes a little while for the song to start. If you can't wait then skip ahead to 1:30ish. That is where it really starts.

This next one is from Amadou & Mariam. They are a blind couple from Mali who met at Mali's Institute for the Young Blind. They fell in love when they saw each others love for music then got married and formed this band.

Amadou & Mariam - Sebeke
