    I have always wondered how the string quartets of good old classical composer Brahms would sound like if played by a modern electrical guitar combo. They sound like made for that, before the instruments were there. Never heard of any attempt to do that though.

    in any case, you can go may ways from this, to musical crossdressing, which is good, but also to some more look at Korean musical originality:

    (long - but mindblowing) Careful taht isn´t exactly "easy listening". Well I said you can go many ways from there :)

      takes Bach in a few directions on his AfroClassic album, which he made while he was a grad student at University of Michigan... Bob James on Fender Rhodes; Ron Carter on Bass...they do the  3rd movement of Brandenburg Concerto #3 which is great but what they do with Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor is sublime... enjoy...

      Fear doesn't just breed incomprehension. It also breeds a spiteful, resentful hate of anyone and everyone who is in any way different from you.

      Hungarian Dance is actually a favorite of metal guitarists:

      I'd like to see someone do it without so much embellishment, just to hear what some of Brahms stuff would sound like as he intended, but with rock metal.

      There's also the opposite where folks are taking rock songs and synthesizing or playing them out as string quartet pieces.

      Here's U2's With or Without You:

      An Fhirinn an aghaidh an t'Saoghail. (The truth against the world.) Is treasa tuath na tighearna. (The common people are mightier than the lords.)

        This is a better Hungarian Dance, and the one I meant to embed:

        An Fhirinn an aghaidh an t'Saoghail. (The truth against the world.) Is treasa tuath na tighearna. (The common people are mightier than the lords.)

        Here's a really good version of Bach's Tocatta in D Minor:

        An Fhirinn an aghaidh an t'Saoghail. (The truth against the world.) Is treasa tuath na tighearna. (The common people are mightier than the lords.)
