One of his most beautiful songs, and since I am currently working on a version for 2 guitars (and enjoying every second of it), I wanted to also share this with you. The Saker Original French language version: Alternative Italian language version: Thanks to this website: http://guitarejazzmanouche.com/grilles/perso/view/3019/ I found the chords: though I personally prefer to harmonize it as so: Bm7, %, Bbm6(#5), %, Am6, B7, E/Ab, %, Em/G, C#dim7,
I regularly get questions about the so-called “Fatima apparitions” which have recently become popular again in Latin circles. While the first time around the intention of this hoax was clearly to use the 1917 chaos in Russia to the benefit of the Papacy’s influence (you can read about this disgraceful episode here), the current re-activation of the hoax appears to aim to somehow piggyback the Latin Church unto the current
This fantastic cartoon was sent to me by a friend who saw it on Moon of Alabama. I did some looking around and the original might well be from here, I am not sure.

This is the composition which single handedly made me abandon Rock music for Jazz. It still is one of my favorites. Enjoy! The Saker Electric version: Acoustic version: and if you want to learn how to play it, listen to this:
One of the most original compositions of my favorite Jazz guitarist. Enjoy! The Saker
By Patrick for the Saker blog It’s amazing to see so many normally sane people foaming at the mouth about Russian interference in American politics. According to their reasoning, the Russians have hacked the Democratic Party and subverted social media to assure a victory for the present occupant of the White House (when he’s not in his NYC tower or at his fancy estate in Southeast Florida). And horror of
by Ramin Mazaheri I must admit that I have only ever read just one article on transgender bathrooms – it seemed like such a minor issue that I didn’t see the need to follow it. There are only so many hours in the day, and I prefer to report on anti-imperialist and pro-socialist issues. It certainly seems like a fair assumption that many other journalists and activists in the West
