Guitarist The Commander-in-Chief, who stars in one of Guitar World's top 10 viral videos of 2014, recently sent over a new clip of her performing "Dee," a Randy Rhoads composition from Ozzy Osbourne's Blizzard of Ozz album.
I admit it. I just love Bonnie Raitt. Is there a more bad-ass female musician out there? I would argue she’s the queen of blues guitar. Raitt, now 65-years-old, is still as hot (and cool) as ever. She released her first album, Bonnie Raitt in 1971 and has been dishing it out ever since.
We recently posted a live video of fingerstyle master Andy McKee performing his track “Mythmaker.” Today we’re excited to share another video; McKee’s “Art of Motion,” a composition from his 2009 release, Dreamcatcher. The clip was filmed backstage in Nashville, TN, before his show at the Belcourt Theatre. “Art of Motion” kicks off with some intense rhythmic playing, before descending into dynamic and brilliant melodic passages.
We are very excited to share a pair of superb acoustic performances from Deleasa. So nice to these stripped down to the soul of the song arrangements. And Michael Deleasa agrees. "I was taught the key to a great songs is if it can stand alone with a acoustic guitar and vocal,” he shares.
Here’s a rare clip of two denim-clad musical legends performing together with acoustic guitars. It’s George Harrison and Bob Dylan rehearsing “If Not For You” before The Concert for Bangladesh in 1971. “If Not For You” was originally penned by Bob Dylan and appears on his 1970 album, New Morning. Soon after George Harrison released a version of the song on his post-Beatles masterwork, All Things Must Pass.
Today we bring you another totally not-new video. However, it wound up in our inbox over the holidays, and we thought we'd share it. It's a clip of a guitarist named Jan Laurenz performing a piece he identifies merely as an "old folk song." The catch, I suppose, is that he's playing it on a BearTrax tap guitar.
