Absolute Trivia

Post by Grandad » Sat May 04, 2019 12:31 pm

I needed to do a bit of 'tweaking' of the TV settings this morning. During that process a morning cooking program included an ancient clip of Keith Floyd cooking in Andalucia. During the clip he was accompanied by John Williams playing classical guitar.
Watching Johns fingers on the strings was mesmerising and the music quite beautiful. I searched Youtube and found that program and as nothing more than a bit of trivia, I have posted the link here.



Ignore the first 12 minutes and pull the slider to '12' to the point where the music starts.

I do remember when John Williams and also Julian Bream were popular on TV for their virtuosity with classical guitar. I marvel at how the brain can control all fingers and thumbs on those 6 strings. :up

The new look forum is great for adding stuff as a quick 'Drag & Drop' usually works for most stuff. :up

Grandad, I'm afraid that my fingers are no longer flexible enough, in addition to being too big. :(
