    There have been several groups called the Skunks; this is the one from Austin, Texas. This "melodic punk" recording from 1982 uses the I--V--vi--III--IV--V progression made famous by "I Want to Hold Your Hand."
    But here, the III chord is a dominant 9th. Even the Beatles never did THAT!

    Making rock or jazz arrangements of classical music has been done many times, but rarely with a hit record resulting. Here's one from 1962 that succeeded; it starts off slow, but then it goes wild. The label shows "Kim Fowley" as the writer, but it's a rock'n'roll version (or, perhaps more precisely, a "boogie" version) of a tune from an 1892 ballet, "The Nutcracker" by Tchaikovsky. Of course, when music is that old it's no longer illegal to "steal" it, and in this case everyone knew where the tune came from anyway.

    Here's a strange one. The guitar is beautiful, but the words are just a lot of disconnected phrases thrown together at random!

    A Guitar Genius?


    Larry Coryell was mainly a jazz musician; but he also made a few albums consisting of famous
    pieces of classical music, which he played perfectly on solo acoustic guitar.

    Here's his recording of a 19th-century tune from Spain.
