This kind of music requires good musicianship. Chet Atkins is one of the top guitarists of all time.
I agree. In fact it's not a breakdown the way it's played here. A breakdown starts with a chord progression which is then "broken down" into a series of individual solo improvisations based on that chord progression. While one band member solos, the others continue to provide back up. Having said that, the solo wasn't bad imo.So with this sub-thread of acoustical guitarists, a few more:
As for Foggy Mountain Breakdown, not the best version, but unexpected from the Stray Cats:
Kent? Miskovsky? Maggio? I wouldn't know any of them were Swedish. Where are the Johanssons and Svenssons?Even though I mostly like UK/foreign music, we have/have had some good artists here in Sweden (not only Abba! ). Here are some of my favorites:
Kent - Music Non Stop
Lisa Miskovsky - Lady Stardust
Robyn - Be Mine (Live)
The Knife - Heartbeats (Live) -
Instant Repeater '99
The Hives - Walk Idiot Walk
Veronica Maggio - Välkommen in (Lyrics + English Translation)
Selfish - Lonesome Road
Kent=Swedish/Finnish, Miskovsky=Swedish/Finnish/Czech, Maggio=Swedish/Italian. I don't remember any good Johanssons and Svenssons in music at the moment, haha.Kent? Miskovsky? Maggio? I wouldn't know any of them were Swedish. Where are the Johanssons and Svenssons?
Well, to date some 3150 posts suggests about the same number of various opinions of "best songs" assuming duplicates roughly cancel out multiple song posts. Obviously it's a matter of opinion and taste. Some, like the last video, are counter-examples. I've posted some counter-examples of over rated (IMO) artists. It's just a fun thread. I've found some good stuff that I've never heard before, so I have no problem if the idea of "best songs" may be stretched a bit.We seemed to have strayed from "Best Songs Ever". Do the posters really believe all these are songs worthy of that level of praise? Beginning to feel a lot like "Music I like Today". Just sayin'.
