International Trade (in musical virtuosity)

by Russ Roberts on August 30, 2006

in Music

Here’s a fascinating New York Times story about how the web let’s people around the world communicate musical ideas and share arrangements. It also illustrates how the power of the creative urge can overcome a lack of intellectual property rights.

The story is about a rock guitar version of Pachelbel’s Canon and the mysterious virtuoso who played it and put it up on YouTube.

I don’t know about you, but a rock guitar solo of Pachelbel’s Canon sounds pretty horrifying. But  I got goose bumps anyway. The guy can play. The video is here.

It’s pretty popular. It’s been seen around 8 MILLION times. What an interesting world we live in.

I hate to be a self-promoting douche, but this applies to the topic. Because of a little video I made a couple years ago that I posted on the Internet, I got to be on one of my favorite TV shows earlier this summer.

But even before that dream-come-true situation, I had met many interesting musicians from all around the world. Using cheap equipment, I collaborated with some of them, and shared my own strange, original music as well. A great deal of the music theory I've learned came from discussions on guitar forums. Until I started college a year ago, this all happened from my mom's basement. I hope to finish a CD by the end of the year, which I'm recording on my laptop, with the intention of selling it on CDBaby.com.

In other words, independent musicians have never been in a better position than they are now. How is it that those who benefit so profoundly from capitalism tend to be some of the most vehement opposers of it?

You need to make sure your credit history is ok if you want to apply for a rewards credit card. If you credit history is not that great you will lose more money than you'll make with those rebates. Of course, there are offers for all types of credit history on the net, especially at

It is hard to find a good credit card deal. There are always hidden pitfalls. I have a college friend who's been paying off her credit card debt for 6 years now. That's because she wasn't aware of the terms and conditions of her card. The only way to avoid trouble is to read all the details. This is what I did when I applied for my most favorite visa card at
