    I just heard about Kutiman and his music so i decided to share it with other Zoners. Some might have already heard of him. He is best known for mixing unrelated Youtube music clips to create some cool stuff.

    I have embedded one of the mixes below but you can click on any of the 8 listed on the right side of the video.

    Enjoy!!

    I found one of his own music on Youtube. Not too bad, IMO, make it funky.

    Thanks for reminding me. I remember when you 1st posted them and i had meant to check them out but got distracted with school work.

    I just looked at them, i don't know what you're talking about, i personally liked them. I play a little myself, well actually i used to, i haven't picked up my guitars in a couple of years, shame really. But i have one classical and one steel string acoustic guitar. I really enjoyed my classical when i started playing, i loved that sound. Took a class to get started and played on my own for a couple of years before i started grad school and that essentially put an end to any spare time or social life i had.

    Did you get formal training? If so, was it traditional classical or flamenco? I couldn't really tell from your clips.

    Yes...on an Alto sax in jr. high. Played rythem and blues stuff.

    Went to war...bought a guitar that we all could make music with.

    After I touched the guitar...I could not put it down. That's why I wonder, "what the hell"?

    :eek::

    No training on guitar though, huh? Well you play it very well, especially for someone without any formal training.

    Not formal training like a guitar teacher, but I have bought books and training videos and such stuff like that. And I always practice with a metronome for timing.

    Of course jamming with friends helps also. I also play acoustic and some electric guitar.

    Is there a particular one you recommend specifically for classical guitar? I've been meaning to get back to it and i would appreciate a recommendation.

    It depends on what kind of Classical music you want to learn. There are many kinds, ranging from Spanish classical to Mozart Classical. Choose the one you want to learn.

    The thing that you really need to learn (if you don't already) is reading tablature, practice some scales from what Classical music you want to play, use a metronome while doing it, and practice at least 1 hour a day, wheather you want to or not. :eek::

    What are you? Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced will help you decide for yourself.

    Google what you think you would like to play in Classical, listen to some samples of the music to see if that is what you want to do...buy a book, know tablature, and have a comittment...and it's all yours!


    :)


    And, DON'T forget to buy a metronome...unless you already have one!
