  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    I'm guessing MG is not far from the standard above?

    That was great. Maybe you'll appreciate this too. It's Bach's Chaconne, which is very hard to play right, and this lady plays it magnificently.

    Its haunting isn't it. I know very little about Bach but recently started taking an interest. When he died, people missed his organ playing more than his compositions.

    There's a story that he wrote it after his first wife died. I don't know if that's true, but when I listen to Chaconne fully concentrated, it gives me complete human destiny on God's Earth.

    Precisely, magnificient.... For myself, the 6 minute mark is a highlight given the mechanics of the bow and what her fret hand must be doing to make that lovely sound. I remember when i first heard this years ago, i was pretty emo at the time (lol) portions of this piece were reminiscient of something hanging on to its last breathes of life. Thanks for reminding me of this, im definitely gonna download.

    I like it and I think I would have a chance of being able to play it too, not as well of course. But Claire de Lune just looks beyond my abilities altogether. :)

    Awesome, you must be pretty good :) i havent went in depth with classical training. But yeah, the fret hand doesnt look too bad on la catedral, but on claire de lune she definitely has more stretches and abstract finger placements from what i can gather. The phrasing in claire is just gorgeous tho!

    There are a million editions of Misirlou going back to about 1450. But the 1941 jazz arrangement is the one everybody knows.

    Dick Dale and the Del-Tones is my personal favorite.
