If I can do it, I'm sure you can!

Go to the video on youtube and copy it's address. Come back to your post on DF and right click and paste. When you submit your post the video should appear, but sometimes it's only the link. I don't know why that happens.

A poor quality copy from a classic original by Muddy Waters, Mannish Boy, composed in 1955, even the lyrics tell the same story! You just cannot recreate the magic of Muddy Waters.

Then you should like this too, Eric Clapton and JJ Cale, a magical combination.

Thanks for that Dillon. Clapton is quite the musician and he crosses over with such ease.

Picked this one up. By fay much better instrumentally, IMO, than Lynyrd Skynyard, which was better vocally but very different instrumentally.

Absolutely LOVING all the guitar legends here!

Currently listening to the new Juliana Down CD. Not bad. Not good either, but being a locally based band they have done well.

For the guitar afficianados: Genesis - Inside and Out
Steve Hackett at his awesome best. A must to listen right to the very last fade.

I don't think there was any good music in the 80's was there?

Are you a fan of the Village People by any chance?

I enjoy the electro tracks from the 80's , Not as robust as todays HOUSE

- Duran Duran - Hungry Like a Wolf

- Modern Talking - You're my Heart , youre my soul [EuroDance Version]

- Modern Talking - Cheri Cheri Lady [House Mix] - IMHO one of the best Electro tracks from the 80's

I was prompted to listen to some more old classic guitar greats this weekend and I found myself asking who would be your greatest guitar player? It was impossible to come up with an answer, there are so many greats with so many different playing styles from so many different genres, it would be just plain unfair to single any one guitarist as the greatest of the great.

I remembered in my youth, a café in Huddersfield called the Alassio coffee bar, it was part of a culture at the time, there were around half a dozen coffee bars all in walking distance of each other and all owned by Italians who either emigrated to the UK or simply as POW’s, stayed there after WW2 and started their own businesses, the ground floor of the Allasio serviced St Georges Railway Station but the basement was where it all happened, blacked out walls with psychedelic paintings illuminated by the ultra violet lighting, pinball and table football machines tucked away in an alcove entertained some, while the serious café fraternity chilled out smoking willy woodbines, players No6, drinking coke, with extra sugar and listening to Northern Soul, Barclay James Harvest and Fleetwood Mac, Pete Green was the founder of Fleetwood Mac in 1967, ‘The Green Manalishi’ ‘Oh Well’ and ‘Man of the World’ are a few that came to mind, in the days of FM producing real music and not the fluff they produced after Pete Green’s sudden and tragic departure.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVWcq-PjgpY&feature=related

Pete Green joined John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers as a replacement for Eric Clapton when he left to form Cream in the Mid 60’s Clapton earned the nickname of ‘Slowhand’ and ‘God’ while with John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, as Claptons successor, Pete Green earned the title of ‘The Green God’ he produced ‘The Supernatural’ on their first collaborative album.

Nice of you to share your memories Dillon.

You got me thinking back, I loved Cream, I remember buying The Best of Cream in 1969. I think Badge was my favourite track. Eric Clapton at his finest. Apart from Layla, that is.

Youtube wont let me post Badge!

I am with you Dillon! Peter Green was (is) a genius. He dropped off the mainstream radar completely after The Bluesbreakers and disappeared completely for a while in the late 1970's. He dropped out and suffered a series of mental illnesses but never gave up playing blues.

In recent years he has seen a resurgence in popularity even though it is amongst a select group. He still plays but suffers health problems.

For someone like Eric Clapton to describe him as 'The Best', means he is.

What makes a great guitarist ? While I think Knopfler and Clapton are legends, I don't find anything by hendrix anything special ? Santana to be alright and so on and so forth.

Is it how one has come up with new advanced tehnique at playing the instrument or make it do things no one ever thought about or the quality and longevity of music which these people played which appealed to the masses ? Technique or the final product or both ?

A great guitarist is one who can play the guitar without the advanced techniques. Playing it in it's purest form without the aid of enhancement.

Its overall knowledge of the instrument and ability to create a unique signature from the instrument either acoustically or electrically amplified.

A few examples of some extremely talented and able players, although lesser known, are:

Jan Akkerman
Nuno Bettencourt
Stanley Jordan
Gordon Giltrap

Ultimately, its all about the music.

Nuno, I would agree with you on that one. Haven't heard much of the others.

Personally I think James Hetfeild is one of the best guitarist I've heard. Kirk makes some contributions aswell but james is the man. They maybe be metal but some of their peices are just awe inspring.
