Lesle West Mountain Youtube

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009 | Electric Guitar, Guitar Legends, Rock Guitar, Youtube | No Comments

Anyone that was alive and really listening to rock guitar in the 1970′s would know of Leslie West from the band Mountain.  Leslie’s sound was second to none, he played a Les Paul junior and an interesting thing was he wasn’t really interested in using his little finger on his fretting hand, regardless of that his tone was sensational and sends chills down the spine.

For another great guitar video, check out Jeff Beck

Jeff Beck Youtube – Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers

Sunday, September 27th, 2009 | Electric Guitar, Guitar Legends, Guitar videos, Youtube | 4 Comments

I’ve been a fan of Jeff Beck’s playing since the days when he played with the Jeff Beck Group, I think it was the song Definitely Maybe which first convinced me of what he had to offer which was different to others.  His tone is fantastic.  This is the classic song ‘Cause we’ve ended as lovers’, one of my favorites.  Note, there is a slight intonation issue later in the song, which is not surprising considering his use of the whammy bar.

Here is my favourite Jeff Beck Song called Nadia

Adrian Belew Youtube Electric Guitar

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009 | Electric Guitar, Guitar Legends, Youtube | No Comments

Adrian Belew is one of the most innovative guitarists.  He played with King Crimson and also did some exceptional work with David Bowie.  He also recorded with Talking Heads on the Remain in Light album and David Byrne’s Catherine Wheel project.  His early work on his solo albums Twang Bar King and Lone Rhino seperated him out from other guitar players because of his ability to create fascinating  sound effects.

Here is the Adrian Belew Website - Adrian Belew

And here is a link to Jeff Beck’s beautiful recording of Nadia

Jeff Beck Youtube – Because We’ve Ended as Lovers

Sunday, July 12th, 2009 | Electric Guitar, Guitar Legends, Youtube | 4 Comments

The guitar in this performance is incredibly beautiful, it also features the young Tal Wilkenfeldon on bass.  Jeff Beck manages to make his guitar cry like no one else. I’ve never realy understood how or why, and frankly I don’t want to know. My other favorites by him are Definitely Maybe and Nadia.

Jazz Guitar Video Youtube Jimmy Raney

Thursday, June 11th, 2009 | Guitar videos, Jazz Guitar, Youtube | No Comments

I’ve been seeing so much good jazz guitar video’s which are available lately, I thought I’d post another one.  This is Jimmy Raney, he’s not a household name like Montgomery, Kessell or Joe Pass but amongst jazz guitar players he’s held in very high regard.  His son is also a great player as well.  Here he is doing the jazz standard Out of Nowhere.

Here’s a great Jazz Guitar Youtube of Joe Diorio and Pat Metheny.  The tune they are doing is a jzz/ blues classic called Blues in the closet.

Jazz Guitar Youtube Chuck Anderson

Thursday, June 4th, 2009 | Jazz Guitar, Youtube | No Comments

Here is some great jazz guitar that has everything in it, and in this case it’s great, chordal solos, fast hot jazz shredding, octaves and some beautiful flowing lines, it’s a great mix of various tequniques strung ( guitar joke) together very nicely.  The guitar player is Chuck Anderson, the tune is the magnificent standard “There Will Never Be Another You”.  Run it through a couple of times to get a good idea of what’s really going on here.

Here is Chuck’s site for more information about this great playing.  Check him out at Chuck Anderson

And really if you are going to listen to jazz guitar, you may as well listen to the great stuff!

Robert Cray Albert Collins Youtube

Sunday, April 19th, 2009 | Blues, Guitar Lessons, Jazz Guitar, Youtube | 1 Comment

Robert Cray and Albert Collins together, both are  exceptional blues players.  Very different in style, Albert plays a Fender Tele, what is unusual about his playing is he often uses a capo.  Albert Collins’s playing seems to have sweetened over the years, he has an extraordinary bite in his playing.  Robert Cray, the silky voiced bluesman achieved great commercial success in the eighties.  Robert would probably be the smoothest blues player getting around.  Robert first started playing because he liked the Beatles music.  He mixes the the brilliant blues of the past with the production quality of the present.

If you want to hear an exception album, have a listen to the Showdown album, it included a third great blues player Johnny Cougar.


Joe Bonamassa with Danny Gatton Youtube

Thanks o Jon from Guitar Noize for the  heads up on this

Jimi Hendrix Live Youtube

Saturday, March 21st, 2009 | Electric Guitar, Guitar Legends, Youtube | No Comments

JIMI HENDRIX on Youtube Video

Keep in mind this is 1969 on the Lulu British Television Show .  Jimi Hendrix does nine minutes of Voodoo Chile and Hey Joe and then they do Sunshine of Your Love

Considering what else was on television at that time.  Lulu was very young at the time, she had top 40 hits at about 17 years old.

This was a missing tape for a number of years, this is music history

Pat Martino and John Schofield Youtube

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009 | Guitar Legends, Jazz Guitar, Youtube | No Comments

I was sitting at home listening to the Pat Martino CD We’ll be Together Again and then I realised that there maybe guitar players thatdon’t know this great jazz guitar legend.  Pat has had a very interesting journey in life and recovered from a very serious illness.  He is probably one of the most fluent players in the history of guitar.  Here is is on Youtube video with another great contemporary jazz guitar player John Schofield.  I saw John Schofield play in the early eighties in a guitar duet,  I still haven’t recovered.  :-)

Truly remarkable guitar playing if you care to look at it closely.

BB King Jimmy Vaughan Buddy Guy Clapton Youtube

Friday, February 13th, 2009 | Blues, Electric Guitar, Guitar Legends, Youtube | 1 Comment

Ooooh, now this is good.  What a mix, four very great players together doing Rock Me Baby.  I love Buddy Guys playing, I first heard him about 1971 and he was in a dream I had at the time at 14 years old, and at that time I didn’t know who he was.  Now every guitar player should know him.  Jimmy V is Stevie Rays brother, the other two don’t need an introduction, only respect. Great to hear another version of a blues.

Charlie Christian Youtube Jazz Guitar

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009 | Guitar Legends, Jazz Guitar, Youtube | 4 Comments

When Charlie Christian first played the electric guitar in the late 30′s anbd early 1940′s, when most people heard it they did not realise that it was an electric guitar, it was a new phenomena.  This youtube video is not Charlie Christian playing live, it is a series of photographs, but the recording of him playing Stomping at the Savoy live in 1941 is of great historical interest to guitar players.  So many of the great jazz plays fashioned their style on Charlie Christian.  He died very young, just like Hendrix did.  His impact is not widely recognised outside of jazz guitar circles.

Charlie Hunter Youtube – If Six Was Nine

Monday, January 19th, 2009 | Electric Guitar, Jazz Rock, Rock Guitar, Youtube | 2 Comments


This guy Charlie Hunter is a really serious guitar player;  there’s guys who just play, guys that shred and others that just copy.  Charlie Hunter is someone that thinks for himself, and he can play.  I’ve been aware of his playing for quite a few years now,  when I first heard him him doing Hendrix’s If six was Nine,  I  thought what is this? What the?  That sound… good heavens… he’s got it.  And I got what he’s doing and it sends chills through me.   Salutations to Charlie Hunter.


John Lee Hooker Youtube

Saturday, January 10th, 2009 | Blues, Electric Guitar, Guitar Legends, Youtube | 1 Comment

Here’s a guitar video of the incredible John Lee Hooker doing the tune Bad Like Jesse James, with his trademark vocals and simple repetitive riffs.  His sound is recognisable after a couple of notes.   The dialogue prior to the tune is Ry Cooder.  Cooder’s has been responsible for supporting and exposing numerous musicians from various cultural backgrounds.

John Lee Hooker’s music is simple, but he plays exactly what is required, a lesson to guitar plares everywhere.
