Guess I'm the only one posting clips. OK, here go three:
First up, Big Bill Broonzy, one of the earliest great fingerstyle blues players. Rare video footage of this great player.
Next, a more modern guitar wizard. I love this clip, David Bromberg on WFUV public radio in New York City earlier this year. This is just simple, elegant, magnificent performing by a master, covering a lesser known but wonderful Bob Dylan tune, "It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry"....
And last, since I just returned from Chicago and visited his club and met him, have to have some Buddy Guy covering a John Hiatt song with John Mayer. Just beautiful.
