I don’t know one thing about a guitar other than it has strings and pegs but I want to hear Taylor play this. I dare to call this little number “masterful” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=On5372UztI0.
YOU LIE! No one can be ignorant of guitar AND love Roy Buchanan! It's impossible :0 )
Roy's "Sweet Dreams" makes me cry.
WOW. That was sublime.
Funny, the name Roy Buchanan has been bouncing around in my head for many many years because the first (and probably only) time I heard him was about 20 plus years ago and I was transfixed, just as I was by “Messiah”, and I said to myself “that is the GREATEST guitar playing I’ve ever heard”
Whenever the subject of guitarists came up in conversation
I’d inevitably say “Have you ever heard this guy Roy Buchanan?
And I say this as someone who grew up with Michael Bloomfield’s cousin, and Bloomfield, who hailed from nearby Glencoe, Ill.,about five,six years older than us, would sometimes pop in at our highschool dances and treat us to an impromptu jam. He was amazing, and would usually show up with jeans torn from crotch to below the knee on the inseam, and make a point of prominently displaying that as he played.
I’m going to make listening to RB a regular thing now.
Still nothing that gets me more than blues-grounded music, whether its bigger category is rock, or jazz, or country or whatever. Great music is all alike, it’s simply great.
Too bad Buchanan didn’t do an encore: he was finished a good two minutes before that 9:36 clip ran out, and never came back to the stage.
