This music makes me feel good

I came across a great guitarist/bassist from the Cary, NC area. Don't know much about him other than his name is Robby. Take a listen to his song "Carlos' Tribute."  Why hasn't he been discovered?

Bet you never heard of Orianthi, but you will

She is one of the newest sensations of the six string. She performed with Carrie Underwood at the Grammy's on February 9, 2009 and has jammed onstage with Carlos Santana.  I own her Violet Journey CD, in which she plays all the instruments. Amazing talent.

Great radio music site

Must reading

I am almost finished reading an astonishing insightful look into Arab/Eqyptian Islamic culture, "Now They Call Me Infidel" by Nonie Darwish. She explains the mind of the Muslim which we westerners simply don't understand and can't fathom. Please read this book; get it from your local library, amazon or your favorite book seller. This book cover image was taken from I am so thankful to be an American, but I wonder how long our ideals of human rights, democracy and freedom will survive.
