    VERY cool tune:









    My greatest guitar teacher (William Tortora aka. Billy Peppa) presented this to me.

    Billy was my best teacher.

    As a super massive Van Gogh fan I find that tune extremely poignant. I always think that if Vincent was a guitar player he'd play like Jimi - massive slabs of colour just slathered on as thickly and expressively as possible.

    Agreed
    I remember my 2nd or 3rd grade music teacher forced us to listen to this.

    Ive liked it ever since

    Great song. My 16 year old stepdaughter loves it now too.
