Calvin,

Modify the above post so you can see how to post embedded Youtube videos.  There is a Youtube BBC code button (6th from the left) that you can use and all you need is put video ID in between the codes.

The code looks like this:
Code: [Select]
[yt=425,350]video id goes here[/yt]
Thanks,
Slack

When you say "video ID" do you mean the embed or the url.... ?

Yes, great find Calvin.  1966 - both Estes and Rachell in fine form, but Estes looks pretty frail at age 62. Rachell's playing is spectacular (age 56!)

Take a look at this video, its a video of a black banjo player filmed in 1928:

A good smattering of country blues videos in the 93 this guy has uploaded.  The kind of player that makes you think you should take up stamp collecting instead.  All videos aimed at both hands.  Great voice too.  Sample "Hesitation Blues" and "The Girl from Ipanema" ..at least...  ;)

He prohibits embedding his videos - so here is a listing of all.

Tasty player, great timing of the basic Am / E lick on Hes Blues, will have to revisit mine which is in a deep rut (I call it a 'groove') worn by 30 plus years of playing it, one of the first tunes I learned to fingerpick. Fretkillr's is more Jorma than Gary but it has a lot going for it. Re the other thread, he's a natural rulebreaker and a mixer, I can dig that.

Slack if you want to learn those fun up the neck things he's doing Jorma breaks them down pretty clearly on one of his DVDs. They're not too difficult.

Great camera angle for teaching, I agree.

Aren't those just a bunch of diminished chords?  Which Jorma video is that? (as if I need yet another video)

That's what I thought -- you can learn a ton.  Very generous of Mr. Fretkillr, whoever he may be...

My reaction to the Leadbelly video:

Obviously Leadbelly is patronizing Lomax in a very submissive manner, making this video heavily racist. However, what's more interesting here is to see Leadbelly singing to his wife in video form; we've all seen the photo of the two of them together at the same moment in time. The ending, mentioning how a poor, black, ex-convict born in the 1800s who sang pre-Blues folk music had his records stored along with the Declaration of Independence has to be one of the most unintentionally awkward, gripping, amazing moments in the history of film.

This video of Lightnin' Wells doing Louie Lasky's "How You Want Your Rollin' Done?" is one of my favorite things on YouTube:

In part two of the same clip
(here:http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=DIKedqvfwyc&feature=related)
there's a tantalisingly short clip of Brownie playing in B, which he regularly did. Has anyone come up with any other clips of Brownie in B?
