There is a fantastic series of videos up on YouTube with recording sessions of famous songs dissected – I’ll pick some of my favorite artists, starting with the Beach Boys:
- “Wouldn’t it be nice” with Brian giving hell to everyone in the first few quirky measures
- “Sloop John B.” (can someone explains why this song sounds so sad to me?)
- “Good Vibrations”
(I know, not much to do with guitars, but…)
Guess who would turn seventy today.
It would have been too easy to post one of the (not too many) clips of Jimi playing, so instead I opted for this, I love the self-deprecating “…what about one of the best guitar players in this chair?”
Miss you, man.
Long time since I posted on this channel – great song and beautiful exec. Chapeau, Antoine!
I mean, as one of the commenter says, you know you can play if Clapton plays rhythm, or if Knopfler plays backing guitar for you.
“Sultans of Swing”
…but instead of the version that we all know and love from Woodstock, I chose this, played…. Ten Years After. (Sorry, cheap pun!)
Very possibly the most underrated guitarist ever.
(“Who do you love” – Chip & Gravenites)
(“All I ever wanted to do” – with the QMS at Monterey)
I realized I haven’t posted anything on my Guitar Masters channel for a while, so I hope you enjoy this treat: this is french-born manouche guitarist Biréli Lagrène who plays with his trio “Donna Lee” by Charlie Parker. A true beauty.
