There are various views on what should be considered psychedelic…some narrow, some broad, and everything in between. At any rate, here is a long video of the sound of a few fascinating years in musical culture. It is obviously a personal selection of the video uploader.
You know The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service…but do you know Beauregard Ajax, Complex, Lahgonia, Rock Island, Fallen Angels, Hunger??
[Where the heck are the 13th Floor Elevators? :-)]

Renaud Louis Servais. Teaching is a big part of Renaud’s musical life. One aspect is teaching fusion guitar at GuitareLive. Here is a part of his lesson…an improvisation on Scott Henderson’s (Tribal Tech) “Peru”. Renaud’s improvisations are always worth posting, in my opinion. (By the way, fans are eagerly awaiting the new Renaud Louis-Servais Group‘s “Epic Circus” album. Pretty soon, I think…)
Is Daniel Harding a fellow Schumann-phile? I have thought from early in life that Schumann and I resonated on the soul level. When Daniel Harding mentions Schumann’s intimacy, he is speaking of what I have always felt. In fact, it is so personal that I can not adequately put it into words. I have known many folks who admired Schumann, thought he was a great composer, etc., but they always seemed to me to be not quite resonating with his music as I do; and maybe it is as it will always be. Schumann may be the most personal composer in my own musical life. Symphony No. 2 is one of my favorite and most personal pieces of music. It also carries the life of many years of listening to it. It always stops me in my tracks.
