For every Justin Bieber (shudder) “discovered” on Youtube, there are others who are so good at their music, it would be impossible to ignore them unless you’re tone-deaf. Lindsey Stirling is one such and deserves recognition and all of accolades you can name. Dubstep violin? You go girl!
1. Lindsey Stirling – “Crystallize”
Well, Jean-Luc Ponty. That’s almost an explanation unto itself. Airy, mystical, just…Ponty.
2. Jean-Luc Ponty – “Cosmic Messenger”
And so now we know where Steppenwolf got the inspiration for “Corrina Corrina…”
3. Cliff Bruner – “Corrine Corrina”
Grapelli is, of course, best known for his many years associated with Django Reinhardt.
4. Stephane Grapelli – “Blue Moon”
Damn, right out of da ‘hood. These guys are good. It’s not all Hip-Hop and Rap.
5. Black Violin – “A Flat”
Of course, we all remember him from his long association with the Jefferson Airplane.
6. Papa John Creach – “String Jet Rock”
Guess the Devil should find another hobby–he got owned.
7. Charlie Daniels – “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”
We remember him also as the Violinist for The Mahavishnu Orchestra.
