Prelude, Bach Cello Suite 1 on bass by Martin Motnik

Ah, Mr JSB...

the original headbanger.

Love how Bach translates to modern instruments (though Martin didn't exactly make it look easy).

The only thing I cannot be doing with in modern interpretations is that ghastly babadabadabada group which is what I am afraid I will hear in my head nonstop one day when old person's disease sets in.

Yes it's those little black dots, scrawled on the manuscript which count; I could hear this on a steel drum or a ukelele and it would still make me smile.

Jesu, Joy of man's headbanging; it's a good thought.

My advice to the world would be, if you'e married to someone who likes that babadabadaba music, leave them.
