You might already be aware of this guy...
Here's another one of his...
And here he is with Buddy Guy a little more than ten years ago... Fun stuff!!!
Thanks orionsbrother. Smooth. Like his tone, too. I will be looking through Youtube for some performance footage.
I wish he was opening on NYE. :)
Lots of good stuff out there of him playing with Santana, Bonomassa, Gary Clark Jr, BB King, Johnny Lang etc.
Yep. And here's some fun acoustic guitar for ya.
Fun stuff Slade. Here's another tangent. One of my kids took up the standing bass. Then another joined in. If I get to enjoy solos like this someday, I will definitely show more enthusiasm than the dog.
Another one for you.
Yeah, bowbender. I wasn't offering anyone up as the greatest guitarist ever. Just some enjoyable musicians that may not have been on your radar.
I get that and thanks. Hey, if you like guitars just for the sake of guitars then check out a program on youtube that comes up 5 times each week called GUITAR OF THE DAY. Way kool.....enjoy!
Schofield is another good 'un.
Got to love the blues. My funeral march is going to be in I,IV, V.
Their are some great artist on this label
Just got tickets for Bonamassa for April in Rhode island.
Going to see Anthony Gomes in March, Gary Hoey, and Quinn Sullivan at Chan's restaurant in Rhode Island. Blues and eggrolls! Twenty dollar tickets and it seat 100 people.
Might squeeze Samantha Fish in too, she's playing the Bull Run in Shirley Mass.
Then Ana Popavic in Derry New Hampshire.
Anthony Gomes, Ana Popavic and Samantha Fish are worth checking out if you're into the blues.
Kenny Vaughn and Marty Stewart are two of my favorite guitar players. They can play any kind of country or Rock and Roll. My son is friends with Kenny and has hired him to play on recordings. My son has played mandolin for Marty's step daughter when she performs at the Station Inn. After the first song wait for the next one which ain't country.
You boys are alright.
muzzy, JoeB puts on an awesome blues show. Funny guy, too.
Sorry, but I am not a MS Delta blues fan, although there are a bunch of talented individuals .
La Grange is one of the greatest guitar riffs ever done. ZZ top's Bill Gibbons did it way back in the 70's and it is still popular today. I have been seeing motorcycle advertisements on TV and La Grange is the background music. A huge percentage of guitar players learn the La Grange riff. I love it.
'Hey Joe' has to be the most covered song in all of musical history. Well, except for 'Happy Birthday.' :) Roy has licks.
"'Hey Joe' has to be the most covered song in all of musical history."
Word is, Yesterday.
I don't believe in "yesterday..." lol
Don't care much for Prince's original stuff but give the man his due; he can flat play a guitar.
Not just the guitar.....that boy could play any instrument on stage. Well!
I got to see ZZ in 1975 when they wore bell botton cowboy suits decked out with sequence...
ZZ Top was my first concert as a kid. Also the first time I had to ask myself, "What's that awful skunky smell??" "Blue Jean Blues" is still one of my all-time favorites.
Most all guitar players can play anything on stage. They have that gift. I know musicians that have done entire albums playing every instrument. On tour, bands often switch instrument during the show.
I used to go see Curtis at a local pub regularly in the 90's.
