You ever wish you could play like that? 

Blues or flamenco (both of which have a permanent place in my heart), I just so wish I could play like this. Lordy knows that I have lived in the US South and Andalucía and I have studied and practised.

Apparently, I am quite good with computers

I went through my bluesy phase as a teen... more frustrated with my singing than anything at the time. But recently got into singing again and this guy:



How bout this?

Heavily influenced by Jimi Hendrix, what Eddie Hazel is doing here in the album Maggot Brain from 1971 tops everything Hendrix did. Experts all agree that. A mindblowing 10 minute guitar solo track. I have to repeat this was recorded in 1971.

I'd have to disagree. Experts? Who? How familiar are you with Hendrix's recordings? Live at the Fillmore? You really think this track beats that performance? Rainbow bridge? Electric Ladyland? I'm aware of the track you linked and listened to it back in the 70's. I liked it then. Doesn't come close to Hendrix' best work. Not even close. IMO. Of course it's all subjective.

Seriously? To me that's a very poor noodle, that is rather annoying, like a Sunday jam after you got a Cry Baby for Christmas. Trust me, even I can do better than that.

Let's hear from the only one that could claim Jimi's crown, at least for a few minutes, and this is just a sound check.



and this is me messing about. I have several bluesy kind of guitars that I pretty much stripped down and rebuilt myself ;-) This is the Strat.

That guy Chris Stapleton has got it! Thought he was a country singer?

I also like his guitar sound with the P90s. It changes it up the classic single coil , strat blues a bit. Listened to sooo much Hendrix and SRV as a teenager, I’m burned out from it. I need something different to be engaged in the blues now.


Damn Escribano! Sounded good!!

I always loved how this tune builds up to that glorious guitar solo at 3:30, killer.

Yes he is crazy good. He was one of those “Nashville song writers” that enjoyed success under the radar with some successful songs, too shy to perform himself. But his wife pushed him to sing his own songs and he blew everybody away with his technique and feeling. It reminds me about flamenco cante...the creators vs the interpreters...especially ones that never recorded yet were revered with people tearing off shirts and jumping off balconies and ever after copied.

Adele

Vs Chris


Or this country pop light stuff:


Vs his cante jondo version



I can’t really tolerate country stuff but this guy just kills it.

SRV in a cheetah fur coat. I hope he didn't perform on stage or walk around with it. PETA activists could have thrown eggs or some nasty stuff at him.

It's not real, I was in Geneva at the time. Though you might stay on the off-topic topic.

I was surprised to read a short while ago (with what accuracy I haven’t yet checked) that the front camera on an iPhone (and thus possible an iPad as well) is intentionally set up on purchase to flip its image left-to-right, because apparently it confuses people to see an image of themselves that doesn’t correspond to that in the mirror.

It's true. It seems all cameras facing the same side as the phone screen show flipped images/video because people like to monitor through the screen (which forces the use of that camera) and it seems unnatural that what looks like a mirror image isn't. One consequence is that all 'selfies' are mirror-flipped as well, and in that way they are different from selfies done with normal cameras. People don't seem to notice; it's more obvious with video.

There is nothing preventing the phone people from showing it mirror-flipped on the screen while recording it the right way, is it? I don't know why they don't do that (or at least have a setting for it as an option) - or do they - I don't have an iphone and can't recall such an option on my LG.

I gather you can modify the default settings to give an anatomically correct image — although I haven’t yet tried (not being of the selfie-taking disposition).

One result of the default settings, of course, is gazillions of videos of left-handed instrumentalists.

He really is. I've been listening to his albums on Spotify for the past few days, and put him on one of my lists. Quite a discovery for me, thanks for this.

If you don't like Bach the solo is at 27 seconds.






I didn't notice that Minor Swing and the first Prelude were effective contrafacts until I played this. I don't think I am trying to play like anyone at all, I try and play what comes.

Merry Christmas Simon.

I am not following this thing...my phone shows the mirror image on screen but the CAPTURE is reversed from that (ie normal)...both for photos and videos. I am thinking there must be a setting that people have on that holds or captures the mirror image unintentionally.

Hey isn’t that guitar Buddha in the video above?

Yes I just found that setting on my phone. I guess it depends if the default is mirror capture (maybe on iphones) or normal capture.

On mine there is an option confusingly called "Save as flipped" - if it is ON (seems the default), it saves a normal image, i.e. the long title of that option is "Save as flipped from the already flipped image/video" or "Save as flipped image of the mirror image". Heh. In any case, turning it OFF saves the mirror image/video, and ON saves the normal (both keeping a mirror image on the screen for monitoring purposes).
