Here's a French-Canadian guitarist I really love.
He only plays his own compositions, which are all played out of drop-G tuning, and always uses his trademark 'brush-stroke'.
Even his slow pieces have a great swing feel.
His playing looks easy but it isn't (I tried...)


A slower piece

Beautiful.  That brush stroke really puts it in a different realm - bass, rhythm, melody - all from the right hand.

Here's another one of my favorite guitarists : John James
In 1972 he recorded with Pete Berryman an instrumental guitar duet album called "Sky In My Pie"; it became a cult-album among fingerpickers.
After 42 years they reunited and recorded one of the selections of that album.
Fine, inventive and relaxed picking.

Mellow tones and a tip of the hat to Blind Willie Johnson from Mr. Dave. I find a lot to like about this duo performance. I would have posted on the 'country blues' version of the youtube thread but the bouzouki (it is a bouzouki, right? Or some kind of hybrid saz?) kind of takes it somewhere else.

David Lindley is remarkable to me for the total mastery of the groove and the sound he gets from his instruments.

If you can watch this and not laugh then you DON'T have a sense of humour!

my we do have some dry old sticks on here :)

But it might be as a yorkshireman you're waggling my stick!

Bear in mind that Rayna Gellert on the fiddle IS one of the foremest old time fiddlers in the States at the moment!

That's one of the reasons it's depressing rather than funny.

A new genre for John Paul Jones's keyboard skills...he seems to have lost his way without Bonham controlling the beat...probably had fun with it though because he hopefully doesn't need to do it for the money.  Would have preferred to see him on upright bass though...
