    One should always listen to music with one’s eyes wide open.

    How else to appreciate the rat at 1:20?

    Play on sweet minstrel.

      Ahh,,,, shoot! Full screen shows it to be a can. Thats not exciting at all. Think I’ll close my eyes now and not even check if that woman took money rather than donate.

      Thieving vs charity. Can vs rat. Life can be so complicated.

      • Tim says:

        the rat was in the can making a stealthy getaway but he succumed after contacting the bicycle.

    Maybe he’ll make enough money to get the hole in his fiddle fixed.

    Maybe because watching anything American now days is seeing something human and beautiful jack booted for total power and American control as zeitgeist; I was expecting, some cop to come up from behind, sucker punch & knee groin this guy in the name of National Security & American protection!

    Perlman, Hahn, Kreisler, Grapelli, O’Conner, MacMaster….the violin is just the best. I never grow tired of it.

    I like fiddle players though Charlie Daniels is more my style. This guy is good. It’s amazing what you can do with horse hair, sheep gut, an amp and an electronic orchestra.

    Nice. This could be Obama’s son.

  15. Uncle Patso says:

    Bears a certain structural similarity to Pachelbel’s Canon in D — variations over a repeated motif. Nice. And well played.
