And I KNOW how I wrote about him being the ultimate?!

Especially considering most of our modern music theory is based almost exclusivly around his music!!!

I mentioned it on another thread but I have his cello Suits and it is one of my most cherished books. In one suite: scales, modes, timing,rythmic study and fingering, as well as many other basic technique issues we all have to deal with are explored within the same piece.

One of the few classical composers who's work I never tire of hearing (Beethovan is my other favorite).

My eyes were opened to the awesomeness of Bach by Victor Wooten's interpretation of one of the cello suites on A Show of Hands. The way he played the piece as written, then doubled the notes, trippled the notes, quadrupled the notes. I remember staring at the cd player with my jaw dropped in utter amazement!!!

In college theory, we explored MANY Bach pieces and I found the relevance of his writing/chord progressions themes and movements in much of the pop music I listen to!

Bach, he's the man!!!

Yeah...
I went to look this one up and post a link to it in the "theory" thread regarding Bach but it was gone.
Hmmm

Well, it's back.

I have to admit I rip off this cat more than any other. I learned a few Bach tunes on the mando a couple of years ago and the lines just creep into your playing.

His chord changes have so much logic in how they move.
