you think that's funny? I had to play that in my high school band at the Christmas faire thingy....I was third clarinet, which gave me lots of time for other functions....I should have been second but, you know...Mary-Beth was cute and well.....high school.....anyway...we got to the part with the penguins and the third trombone started to gag. Seems one of the penguins crapped on his shoes, something like that....At one point the director indicated it was time for me to "remove all cattle from stage", which, being a good farm boy, I thought I could handle. Sadly, the cattle were mock ups...small children dressed as cows, all from a nearby private school and they were having a good time frolicking amongst the strings, (mostly the cellos), I had to use the "prod" to get them off the stage, and sadly, there was a somewhat vocal outcry from a few mums....So glad I'm not in high school any more......
 

Sir please write a book I will buy 5 copies
frigging awesome! Love it!  solid 9!

If a computer could play guitar this is probably how it would sound.

Do not give a second thought as to whether you and some friends should go to see them in concert. Buy the tickets and go. Just do it.
Awesome.  More please.

Yes exactly!

So true!  They are insanely AWESOME to see live.  In my all time Top 5 for sure.  I saw them in an outdoor venue (Chateau Ste. Michelle winery) in the summertime.
Seen them live - he is great but she is sublime.
Nice segue playing them after U2. If you ever get the chance to hear R&G play in their adopted home town if Dublin, take it -- absolutely amazing. 
That reminds me, how's her wrist doing?

Reminds me of a restaurant.. they had a song of Gypsy Kings playing on repeat. Constantly. Every day, all day long

When I saw them at Red Rocks she had a hand masseuse. Al Dimeola came out and played with them  it was awesome from the third row.
great stuff

Saw Rodrigo and Gabriela at Edgefield outside Portland this weekend.  A great, great show!!!

"Amazing playing" does not automatically equate to an enjoyable listening experience for everyone, however, I like this tune, in small doses.

I would not rate it a 1, but the music really grates on my nerves.  I don't know what it is about their material that I hear on RP, but maybe it's just too frantic for me.
Dancing banana is perfectly on tempo.{#Dancingbanana}
Must be a hint.
This song is 50% better live.

Well, to be fair, she's not playing a drum kit...she uses the guitar for the percussion.

You're in for a treat. I saw them in London a while back and if you think it's fun on the record, just wait :) 
Impossible not to tap foot, nod head, or chair dance. Love them. Virtuoso guitar. So much soul. Thank you RP!

New CD recently released. It's supposed to be very different than previous ones - more world music. Hope some of it gets uploaded here.

I don't like them. Brilliant technicians - but that's all.

Wow! The syncronicity of seeing 11:11 everywhere is unbelievable! And here it comes soon enough!{#Drummer}


OMG — I love this everytime RP plays it!

We saw these guys at the Ryman in Nashville a few months back.  Totally awesome act.  Ran into them the next night around midnight on Printer's Alley ...  Sweet couple!

That woould mean the second period is almost  halfway through. I dedicate this to those inebriated souls watching the hockey series - it's June, you know, watch a summer sport!

This ones been an obsession since I first heard it on rp. YouTube the video; those be some FAST fingers. Look for their Stairway To Heaven live performance as well. Pure magic
Rollin out the 8's! Nicely done.

Seconded!  Love their other albums

Okay, I love this music, usually.  Tonight, though, it's grating on my nerves. Bad timing - not bad music.  SO much talent!  I'm just not in the right frame of mind for it tonight, but I do love them. I have a horrible headache, so probably even Dan Fogelberg would elicit white-jagged-shards-of-pain.

Rodrigo Y Gabriela  are definitely a force to be reckoned with! Far too much talent for only two people - they'd need an army to contain them. I hope this made sense...

Great song...   Thanks RP.
First heard this today on my commute to work.  Fantastic!  Watched the video on YouTube.  Definitely getting the CD!
Excellent!
OMG!  What have I been doing! Cheated myself from this absolute jewel, thats what!

It was the first time I heard this awesome duo today. I bought the album 10 min later, and I'm so grateful :) 



This piece has the energy of a boulder rolling downhill - or maybe a Katamari Damacy!

doubt it.  it's what makes this station different from computer generated playlists, and how you know there's a human on the other end.

This song gets better every time I listen to it.  11:11 is an excellent album.  Check out the cover of Stairway to Heaven they did.

I love Satriani's "Summer Song."  Definitely gets me in trouble!  And yep, that's a great stretch of highway - not a lot of traffic, long, straight lanes...  Actually, it's even great on a hot summer day. {#Motor}  Sorry - this was the best I could do...
