Superlatives fail me.

Wow, what touch... incredible.  I'm not a big fan of classical guitar in an orchestral setting - the guitar cannot match the dynamics f an orchestra, even though they try to play quietly... the guitar always sounds flat and unemotional.  But as a solo instrument, in the hands of someone like Ana, just fabulous.

Hi all,
I expect some of you have been familiar with Jesse Winchester, a Mississippi native.  I was so sorry to hear of his death a couple of weeks ago.  I just happened to find this video.  What a thing to open your mouth and have such a sound come out.
All best,
Johnm

Thanks for the post, John. I was a long time fan--ever since his first album came out. Living in Vermont at  the time, I was exposed to his music early on. I was going to post the NY Times obituary, but didn't think it really related to our focus here, but following your lead, here it is:

Here's a hour's worth of Merle Travis and Doc Watson playing live together sometime in 1976. I don't know where or how this was recorded, but the music and the interaction with the two gentlemen in question sounds absolutely great.



Cheers

Came by this in way of the Bert Jansch version. Karen Dalton's haunting version of Katie Cruel. Did any of you folks get to see her live back in the 60's?

Here's one guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Talk about being all over your instrument. This is for you quill players: glass quills?

  Hey guys while i was surfing youtube i came across a great clip from the 60s of Tapio Rautavaara playing this  beautiful finnish piece. Ive been trying to figure out the guitar part he plays but it is so different sounding than most western music and blues stuff i try to figure out. I have tuned my guitar down a half step to match his pitch playing out of a minor. its seems like hes just doing little base lines mostly but i was wondering if maybe he is using a different tuning all together? Beautiful though i thought i might as well share video with you guys because it is really awesome. cheers!

Hi crustypicker,
He is playing out of A minor position in standard tuning, though he may be low.  He's doing boom-chang back-up with moving bass lines, as you said.
All best,
Johnm

And now for something completely different. Another Rautavaara :

So glad good looks don't take you through this world."
