Where is he plugging that amp in? Haha. That can't run on batteries for too long at that volume. Plus, doesn't anyone have a dollar bill? I didn't know people carried around coins anymore
I have a decent portable amp that will run for an hour on internal batteries ... produces up to 100W output
I have to say, I'm rather disappointed that all you could do was tear it down rather than make good comments on
a musician's awesome abilities !!
Hahaha. This is a science forum, I'm trying to pick things apart. As far as his capabilities, I had a songwriter coach that once said, don't worry so much about form and arrangements, if it sounds good, it IS good. I've always remembered that.
So this guy can play one good song, using the acoustic almost as a pedal steel, but can he play anything else? We don't know. He could be a one-trick pony.
you are far from being funny
It's is also the off-topic general discussion section where there are threads on all sorts of non science things
animal lovers, kittens, corny jokes etc etc
you have a really poor attitude
not to mention your amp and battery comments were totally false !!
so you didn't follow links to see what his background is ..... shame on you
I do, and mostly deal in cash.
Amen! The guy is really good!
The song he's doing, "On the Road Again," was made famous (at least to white folks) by a group named "Canned Heat" about 1965. The guy in the video played a very long intro, so it took me some time before I was able to ID the tune.
Oh, C'mon Dave, lighten up. Yes, I think he can wax the blues and it did move me or else I wouldn't have responded to the post. And yes, I am far from being funny and I do have a poor attitude at times...And thank God for that, because I have something to live for in rectifying that.
And to be perfectly clear, I'm not trying to be a wise-ass in saying this, I really mean it. Perfect is boring. I'm tired of being perfect.
Forgot to mention, I couldn't tell at first what he was using for a slide, but when I opened the video in full-screen mode, I could see he was using a metal hip flask for a slide. @DiracPool's comments to the contrary, I suspect the player can play a lot more than just the song in the video.
Yeah, he's been around for a while...
Here's another guitar virtuoso -- Eric Anderson. This piece is an instrumental titled "Trademark."
