One of the coolest guitar pieces I've seen in a while is by Erik Mongraine:

That's really good. I'm finding a lot of music I never knew about, this is great.

The best 80's band...well they're only the best because I've never seen an all female hair metal band like this before.

Ok, that's some scary trailer trash hair. They sound like Heart.

I fell in love with this brilliant David Bowie song (and his voice) when I was about 11. It's just about the best song he has ever made:

That made me think of two of my all time favorites

Major Tom by Peter Schilling http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvHJ8OCfO9c&feature=fvw
and Space Oddity by David Bowie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kxoxqvg3lB0

I don't know what's scarier in that video, his hair or those platform shoes.

Sorry. Direct linking to content is not allowed. Just highlight the link, choose "copy link location" and paste that into your browser's address bar. You won't be disappointed! The guy is incredible. I do a lot of boogie guitar and blues, and this guy's got some great tricks up his sleeve.

I have a student coming over this weekend (a young guy about 35 years old) who wants to learn some more blues licks, runs, and bending techniques. Since I can't play out anymore (asthma, migraines, and joint pain if I get around fragrances), I figure I've got to pass on some of this stuff. I'm not going to charge him, and if he is a quick study, I'll keep helping him. Other people helped me - pass it on.

I will do that.

I am loving all the links people are providing. I haven't been able to comment on every one of them, but this has really exposed me to some talent I was unaware of. Keep posting!

Hey big man, thanks for that. That is definitely some fine guitar playing. I sent it on to a friend who plays guitar and who is a fellow Joe Satriani afficionado. Satriani has done something similar while playing his electric guitar standing up.

Satiani's concert at The Grove in LA is on DVD. I strongly recommend it!


Erik Mongrain sounds a lot like Michael Hedges. For example,

boogie.wmv is 7.3 Mb - so use 'save target as' and save to one's HD.

This has always been one of my favorite McCartney/Beatles songs, but never given the exposure it deserved. The lyrics are so good.

This is funny as he mimics the instruments (french horn) that are to be played.

David Bowie has gone through so many personalities.

I wondered what was so weird about this time frame (same time as he did Space Oddity), and my freind pointed out that his eyebrows are shaved off.

Rebel, rebel

They don't have good performances of my favorite Bowie songs, so instead, here's a very tired "Five Years":

For some electric guitar histrionics, Steve Vai is a kick. This song is called "The Audience is Listening" and it is featured on his "Passion and Warfare" CD with a humorous intro in which "Little Stevie Vai's" elementary-school teacher introduces him by saying that he's going to play some "nice music for us" before going apoplectic. For those who may recognize him from this clip, yes, he is the one who played for the Devil in the head-cutting contest in the movie Crossroads. Ralph Macchio's guitar parts were dubbed by Ry Cooder.

Now, for something completely different. Adrian Legg is simply amazing. He is a guitar repairman with incredible talent, and he puts on workshops for Ovation. Here are two clips of him playing a custom Ovation Adamas fitted with what appear to be Scruggs banjo tuners. Also several nice Kottke clips below.

Traveling Soldier, by the Dixie Chicks. Natalie Maines has a fantastic voice! These low-res clips don't do the Chicks justice. If you like this song, buy "Home" - a wonderful CD.
