Ben Lacy: Beatles Medley

 

By Miche Archetto:

Ben Lacy is an electric guitar virtuoso, but in this video he is endorsing Breedlove acoustic guitars (here he is playing a CM Classic), showing his arrangements of Beatles songs “St. Peppers lonely hearts club band” and “With a little help from my friends”. You will agree that his fingerstyle technique works perfectly also an acoustic guitars.

If you want to check him also playing electric, I strongly suggest to watch his rendition of Queen’s song “Crazy little thing called love”.

 

Here is something more about Ben:

“Ben first started to play guitar around age 7.  He had one “lesson” with a classical instructor. This instructor got mad when Ben told him that he was out of tune.  That was the end of Ben’s formal education, he has been self-taught ever since.

     Ben has played locally in his hometown of Lexington, Kentucky with many bands, ranging in styles from jazz/funk to dance to metal.  Around 2000, Ben became a solo act, but still ejoys a duet with Bob Bryant, bass extraordinaire.  The duo has had the honor of opening for Tower of Power twice in Kentucky.  Outside of Kentucky Ben has performed around North America and in Europe.

     Ben has performed with musician greats such as Al Di Meola, Larry Coryell, George Duke, Joey DeFrancesco and Phil Keaggy.  He has shared the bill with Frank Gambale and Tommy Emmanuel.” More
