Compositional (is that a word?) genious. Composed the themes to some movies you may have heard of like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Jaws. Any fans?

Compositional is a word. Genious is not.

I quite like what I have heard, I always liked the Jurassic Park theme from back in the day and I just listened to it yesterday and it's equally as good as it used to be.

John Williams the classical guitarist is not the John Williams who composes film scores.

John Williams is good, but he just sounds like everybody. Whenever I listen to any classical music, I think, "This sounds like a John Williams soundtrack".

The classical guitarist is great too.

^^ Agreed 100%

I'm studying Williams at the moment for a film music unit. He's an amazing composer. Hans Zimmer is equally as excellent too.

to be honest john williams the classical guitarists sucks a fair amount of testicles compared to most other famous classical guitarists

and one of my teachers has studied with him and he is a very bad teacher as well

but i guess thats cool if u guys are moved by his performances i just cant see why

and dont get me started on his tone that smallman sounds like my dog farting
