Hello my darling dreamlets!!! Tonight's show is Joy's Neverending (see I told you so) Celebration of the Electric Guitar, edition 2...I know you will enjoy these incredible guitarists with their awesome guitars. I'm so thankful that all these greats could participate as everyone is so busy with the holidays right now. Please excuse the bits of choppiness...I had to heavily edit because, as usual, I had a problem getting everything I wanted into the 10-minute limit :) I had to cut back the dream sequence about 50 guitars! lol And, you will notice, tonight's show is quite international, with guitarists from the US, France, Germany, and Japan. This is one of the most fun parts of being on YouTube for me; I get to 'meet' people from all over the world. And I love that the Lounge has become so 'international' lately. And I keep finding that special vein that seems to run through all musicians...the love of music. I think if more people would just be still for a minute and listen to some good music, or even better, learn an instrument...maybe there wouldn't be so much fighting and other crap going on? It's a dream I have anyway :) ...along with having one of each of the guitars you'll see here! Keep the music alive, a'ight? Do whatever you can to keep music class/lessons in the schools, too. I really fear for the future of music if the ARTS continuously are given short shrift as far as inclusion in the curriculum these days :*( Okay, end of rant, and on with the show!!!

If you know someone is struggling in our YouTube Music Community, or in your own community at home, please lend them a hand or give them a shoulder to lean on. When someone is kind to you, please Pay It Forward :) It is amazing what happens in your life when you do for others! Please make a donation to your local Food Bank this holiday season...so many people are going without the basic necessities of life right now. If you're working and can spare a few dollars, you can help a family put Christmas dinner on the table.
