    Imagine for a moment that there are other living beings out there. Imagine there are millions of them on millions of different planets.

    Now imagine that none of them have invented music. Imagine one day we reach space and meet the rest of the universe. One day, all the different species decide to get together via intersteller communciation and present to the other species their one unique gift to the universe. Now imagine the Universe hearing music for the first time. Imagine humans giving the gift of music to the Universe. Imagine music was what humans were known for across the entire Universe. Our place, our mark among the stars.....for eternity.

    What would we play?

    That sounded horribly like ejaculating. Not proud of humans just now.

    We did that with Voyager. The response was, "Send more Chuck Berry."

    You could do worse. Showing a lute virtuoso or guitar virtuoso would be nice too.
    Julian Bream and John Williams or Ida Presti and Alexander LaGoya guitar duo would impress I imagine.
