Great guitar playing..................I've been playing guitar for around 10 yrs and will never get anywhere near that level (it's the barre chords that get me !!). That said I find it very relaxing.

Like the way he changes between using a pick and fingerpicking !!

Played the guitar for about 20 years. Eventually sold my last guitar a few years ago and would like to get another but the dog is terrified of them.

Nice, thanks. I don't often use a plec. and wondered where to keep it when not in use - now I knowWink Interesting that a couple of times he retuned the G-string - either he was changing the tuning or the machine-head couldn't stand up to the work-out he was giving the poor thing.

Having been a guitar-nerd I wonder what make the guitar is - looks to have a great action, but of course that could just be great playing! I've recently gone back to the guitar after quite a few years (various problems etc.) so that was really great to watch. Don't be put off by the guy's playing, folks, think of the possibilitiesSmile (and impossibilitiesSad)

I believe that the guitars he plays are Maton Guitars made in Australia. My husband has one. We have seen him playing at Sheffield a few years ago. It's worth scrolling down from the first link to the video of him playing with John Jorgen son and Pedro Javier, a brilliant version of" Sultans of Swing"

Was going to tum mine into a table and then realised that no matter how bad I am it's still better than watching soap operas.

He's one of those guitarists who is almost like a trickster, he does things that seem impossible. We gave our son, now 43, a Fender Stratocaster, Stevie Ray Vaughan Custom, first one in Canada, for his 15th birthday. He was doing great in his teens, but hasn't touched it since; he's like me, he's going to get back to it, but there always seems to be something in the way.

Here is one of my favorite series of music videos on youtube; Jo Pass and Roy Clark, with Joe's rhythm section, playing tributes to country music legend Hank Williams. Joe was doped to the hilt with pain killers for this session because he was dying of cancer. He died shortly after this session was made. These guys, every one of them, is a master. You don't have to be a country fan to appreciate the skills of these guys. Joe was one of the best ever jazz guitarists, and Roy is a country guitar wizard. To hear them together is a real treat. I sometimes try to play along, give it a try, the music is not complicated: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9tt8Mt9Sbo&index=2&list=PL66AFF5CF1FA5AF44 Take the links to the right and listen to all of them, enjoy.

Be sure and watch this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlTZrxWN7gA&index=7&list=PL66AFF5CF1FA5AF44

He was indeed. He seemed to have great technical ability along with a great melodic feel.
I play electric guitar - a semi-acoustic and a solid - and just play in my own style. I'm not very good at chords but do try to throw a few in because they really do help to support single note lines (which are what I'm best at).
