Well, at least I'm consistent

Ten years ago I posted this.  In the ten years since I've posted regularly on the Blues, and the great bluesmen.  This may have been the one that started it all.  It's not deep, but it sure is fun.

Saturday Night Guitar

Bob posted a very cool video of Junior Brown, which got me thinking about other amazing guitar players.

Eric Johnson.  The part you'll recognize starts about 2 minutes in.

Chet Atkins and Les Paul.  The first two and a half minutes are them goofing on each other but then it's, well - it's Chet Atkins and Les Paul.

Andres Segovia.

B.B. King and Eric Clapton.

Same instrument, different interpretations.

OK, Junior Brown, too, on his own design guitar:

I'd put in some Stevie Ray Vaughn and Otis Rush, too, but that much awesome compressed into a single blog post might rupture the fabric of Space-Time.

Amazing talent. I hadn't heard of Junior Brown -- he can play about anything!

Love Junior Brown. I recommend a couple of relatively new guys, too: Jontavious Willis and Christone "Kingfish" Ingram.

I saw Jon Willis open for the Taj Mahal Trio recently. He has a new cd out; go get it!

Junior Brown's "My Wife Thinks You're Dead" causes shifty eyes in some older folks in the crowd and glares from their wives.
