Open almost any textbook of music and it will tell you that Paganini was thought to have been an agent of the devil. Well, I am starting to think that the true agents of the devil are the writers of such stupid textbooks!
To slur someone, no matter how subtly or indirectly, is still slurring - in my view.

Paganini changed modern music dramatically! He drew us out of the dim durges and drew us towards cheerfullness, fun, and vigour - at a time when almost everyone else was peddling gloom.

I have no doubt that many a REAL student of music will differ from my opinion, but I felt compelled to serve this opinion up before the urge waned.

Comments and alerts to other "uplifting" composers are really welcome.

Cheers,
Mike

Other "real" Paganini can be easily found on Youtube - though not really very much.

AND here is some Freddie King! Never heard of him? He taught Eric Clapton more than what he knows!

Cheerssesssesss Seems to me that Eric Clapton (whos one of Fred's students) got kinda lost on some acid trip between lectures and got kinda caught in time and space.
