For guitar lovers only.
I not a huge fan of Flamico guitar, it sounds cool, but I tire of hearing it quickly.
Anyway, I can appreciate this duo simply because they have some talent... and this piece is a classic.
Great stuff! Hearing Panama Red brings back memories of New Riders of the Purple Sage. I love this stuff.
How bout The Flying Buritto Bros!
I love space cowboy music!
Oh, yes! Brian Setzer rocks! Maybe he is single-handedly keeping big-band accompaniment alive...
Rockabilly/swing is so much fun -- and pretty easy to play. Its got all the fundamentals of 20th century popular dance music... blues, jazz, country twang, swagger. What is not to like?
Help! I like Texas Swing, but do not know the names of any of the bands... anyone?
My problem is deciding which direction to go lol. I love gypsy jazz but I'm leaning in the direction of traditional fat archtop with flatwounds ala Herb Ellis, Wes Montgomery, etc. style.
Of course as you know, the standards translate to any guitar pretty well anyway.
The gyspy jazz thing is very particular and the guitars have a very unique sound... I am pretty sure you can do Django on an archtop more easily than you can do Wes on a Selmer. LOL
However, I think Robert Johnson would translate exceptionally well to a Selmer... as would the much of ragtime and into the 40s jazz. Old-school, but cool!
Ill probably buy an archtop someday... before a selmer. I have a Martin for unplugged Clapton style... it sounds awesome and plays great with new strings, but 2 days later... blah. My Tele is an old war-horse but can cover a lot of ground. My Schecter is really best for noise/distortion/dive-bombs and squeals. It will do blues, but jazz is not its forte.
I am more of a blues/rock player moving towards jazzy, but I get a lot of inspiration from the gypsy jazz stuff -- amazing arpeggios, a lot of diminished chords, minors, 6/7/9... its really a very jazzy blues with harmonic minors, some latin feeling... and ripping riffs. Django Lives!
Wow! That kid is good! He has got some talent. He seems to use a lot of the "2 finger" techniques that Django used. I love those Selmer type guitars. Someday I'll have to get one. I was reading about them awhile back. Small hole versus D hole.
btw..... I'm currently working on "Misty". So many ways to play it. I love how Joe Pass did it. I'm not a finger style player. He was a monster at fingerstyle and pick style....the guy was a genius. I'm just making it through a version my old teacher taught me.
ya... I have been looking at used jazz boxes at used.guitarcenter.com... thinking about buying a joe pass epiphone emperor. I also like the Ibanez pat metheny model... but i really want something with a bigsby: Aria and Gretsch make nice ones... but a selmer-type would be soooo cool (Gitane is an affordable brand/model).
So many guitars, so little talent!
ThAT kid is good.
Used to play a little myself but not very good at all.
Then an injury that left my left hand somewhat buggered made me even worse ...as if that was possible.
Bar cords just about impossible now.
Stevie Ray Vaughan is a name that comes to mind as being very good with the Blues.
Also liked Joe Walsh in slightly different version of an Eagles classic.
some sweet sounding lead guitar rifts in there at times IMO.
Carlos Santana also comes to mind....Samba Pa Ti-- maybe didn't take so much talent for that one but still very nice.
