  • Chet Atkins and Lenny Breau: Note Choice, Note Choice

    Chet Atkins and Lenny Breau: Sweet Geoegia Brown Chet had said that Lenny Breau was one of his favorite guitarist, and in this video which features Chet and Lenny on this jazz classic ” Sweet Georgia Brown,” you are gonna know why Chet would have said such a thing. This particular video is not so good (meaning the quality), as it was probably run off on VCR back when this aired in the late 70′s. You see Ralph Emery introduce […]

  • Mark Kroos: Dueling Himself with Dueling Banjos

    Mark Kroos: Dueling Himself with Dueling Banjos

    Mark Kroos Plays Dueling Banjos From Deliverance by Himself: What happens when your banjo player can’t make it to the gig? Well, you break out the double neck guitar and play both parts of Dueling Banjos by yourself. And that’s exactly what Mark Kroos did in this video… Just when I thought I’d seen it all… hum…. I’m supposing the builders of this instrument didn’t intend it to be used like this but you know, it’s calling out for such […]

    Here’s a video featuring my pal Anthony Hannigan & David Grisman Quintet guitarist Grant Gordy playing the Monroe song “Big Mon.” Anthony Hannigan and I have been playing and recording music for a long time and originally met on a project with Vassar Clements (Anthony if you are reading this..

    Tommy and Phil Emmanuel: Talent Runs In The Family

    Tommy and Phil Emmanuel, rock guitar medley, France, 2001. AMAZING PERFORMANCE! First off, I’ve must have been in a cave or something. I had no idea that Tommy Emmanuel had a brother.. and no less, a brother that plays his you know what off!!!! Man, this is a cool video and proof that Talent Runs In The Family! Seriously, while watching this video, at times I thought that his brother Phil was lighting Tommy up on the electric. Well, no […]

  • Joscho Stephan & Richard Smith: Lots of Pickin’ Goin’ On

    Here’s a song called “Lover Come Back To Me” performed by Joscho Stephan, his band, and figerpicker extraordinaire Richard Smith. Now the changes to this song are considered fairly standard, but what’s not standard is the incredible soloing going on here. It’s really hard for me to determine which guy is tearing it up more, because quite frankly both Joscho and Richard had distinctively different styles… With playing like this, it doesn’t matter whose better… both so great. So let’s just […]

    Rodrigo y Gabriela – Diablo Rojo – Live HD

    Here’s Rodrigo y Gabriela with a song entitled-  Diablo Rojo The performance here by Rodrigo and Gabriela is amazing. So looking at all of the comments at YouTube it seems all they are talking about is how fantastic and incredible Gabriela is with very few mentions about Rodrigo. (see what you get Rodrigo for playing with a girl?) Seriously, Rodrigo is quite the guitarist and obviously the melodic force of this due. Of course, Gabriela can play, talk about excellent […]

  • Mikhail and Jake: Got Rhythms

    Mikhail Asanovic shared this video with us over at facebook.com/acousticguitarvideos I’m not gonna even guess what kind of music this is… And the sound of this is awful, obviously some technical problems. But the playing and the rhythms by Mikhail and Jake is just so unique, I had to put it up. The YouTube description said the following: “Incredible performance at The Old Duke in Bristol by these up and coming geniuses playing acoustic guitar.” Is that Bristol, as in Bristol […]

  • Chet Atkins and Tommy Emmanuel: Fingerpicking Legends

    Here’s guitar legends Chet Atkins and Tommy Emmanuel from a live TNN show back in 97. Now it’s mostly fingerpicking, but when Tommy goes into some soloing here on song #2, he will use his thumbpick similar to a flatpick, and get individual notes this way. Now I don’t know about you but, this video is cool because it features an interview on the back end. Chet talks about meeting Tommy, introducing him to Lenny Breau, and the making of […]

  • Eugenio Polacchini & Matteo Minozzi: Bruskers Guitar Duo

    Blane Ebersold sent this into our facebook site recently and writes: “The Bruskers Duo (Matteo Minozzi and Eugenio Polacchini) are an amazing guitar duo from Italy.” Well well, this is certainly is as Blane describes- This particular song entitled “Fragile” is originally a Sting song (you know, the bass player and lead singer from the group The Police. I think a lot of people here are gonna hit the like button with this one! For more info on the Bruskers Guitar […]

  • Vlatko Stefanovski and Tommy Emmanuel: Mozart’s “Turkish March”

    This was filmed at an event called the King Of Strings at Guitar Art Festival in “Sava Centre”, Belgrade… This particular cut features Vlatko Stefanovski along with Tommy Emmanuel on Mozart’s famous ”Turkish March.” What’s interesting about this duo is, Vlatko is taking most all of the solos while Tommy is playing mostly rhythm (he does get a break towards the end of this piece). But hey, it doesn’t matter, Vlatko is smoking great on this, and the tone he’s getting from the […]

  • Stefan Grossman & Ton Van Bergeyk: Struttin’ Rag- Blake’s Breakdown

    By Jim Weaver “For those who like ragtime and Stefan Grossman, here is a shameless plug. Check out the old photo and tell me what fun it would be for a bunch of us to get together and do some rags. And for those who do not know Ton — listen up.” Although this video is not really a video (more like a slide show) I too thought the photos were very cool. And of course Stefan Grossman’s and Ton’s […]

  • Simon and Simon??? Who Knew Paul Had A Brother?

    Stewart Levett from  http://greatacousticguitarmusic.blogspot.com  (check his site out) found this video and sent it into us over at our sister facebook page. This video that Stewart located in my opinion is priceless! Who would have known that Paul Simon had a brother (and looked just like him!). Seriously, I can’t tell the difference. Maybe I’ve been in my cave too long? I just never knew he had a brother, and one that played! Even the YouTube author missed this… So why […]

  • Dan Grigor: Double Down On The Talent

    Dan Grigor is quite a talented guy, not only with the 12 string  guitar, his voice and the blues, but videography. At first when I saw this video I though “Where’s the third guy in The Green Screen Trio?” and then I noticed that his twin brother next to him (the guy on the right, or… hum the left, looked a little too much and played like Dan Grigor? Well, the Green Screen Trio is an appropriate title for the […]

  • Wim den Herder & Lars de Rijck: Guitarists Pay Special Tribute

    Elly Den Herder Michielsen shared a video with our facebook page and writes: “Afscheid means ‘goodbye’. This music was written after the suicide of a dear friend.” Thanks for the share Elly, and I do know what it feels like to loose someone like this. It is a beautiful composition that I thought was worth sharing again. The video that Elly sent in however, is not this one I featured….  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0x6mcYqyE4 So,  I checked around and found this song “Afscheid” with a […]

  • Chet Atkins & Mark Knopfler: A Great Match

    This from YouTube: “Mark Knopfler and Chet Atkins play “I’ll see you in my dreams” and “Imagine” live at Secret Policeman’s Third Ball 1987.”  link This is an enjoyable video in that Mark Knopfler and Chet Atkins both have that easy going feel to their playing. Yea, hot licks and stuff, but they’re playing music and not trying to blow the other one away. In Mark’s case, a lot of it has to do with the respect he obviously has […]

  • Corky Siegel and Jim Schwall: Never before released

    Remember the Siegel Schwall band? For those of you that don’t know, here’s a write up about them: “Corky Siegel and Jim Schwall met each other when both were music students atRoosevelt University. Siegel, originally a saxophonist, was interested in blues, while Schwall’s background was mostly in country music. They combined these two genres, producing a lighter sounding blues as compared to Butterfield Blues Band or John Mayall. The Siegel–Schwall Band included Shelly Plotkin on drums and Rollo Radford on bass. Radford had previously played with Martha […]

    Australia’s Got Talent… No not the TV show, Tommy Emmanuel and Joe Robinson! Tommy Emmanuel, whose has more guitar videos posted of him on YouTube than just about anyone, seems the popular vote as the world’s undisputed heavyweight champion of the acoustic guitar.

  • Joscho Stephan and Tommy Emmanuel: As Hot as it Gets

    Having trouble waking up this morning? This video at 8 am was the equivalent  of 4 cups of espresso for me! German guitarist Joscho Stephan, who may be the fastest gun on the gypsy jazz guitar, teams up on stage with legendary guitarist Tommy Emmanuel at an event called  Leverkusener jazztage 2012   On the history of the festival “In 1978, joined together members of a popular high school course on the history of jazz and founded the first jazz club in Leverkusen, […]

  • Street Guitar #12: Paco Watch Out

    Here’s two Guitarists playing in Park Güell (Barcelona) Even though it looks like no one’s paying attention, there is applause from the audience at the end of the song. IT’S ABOUT TIME! We’ve been posting a mini series on “Street Guitar” this last week….this is the first video that has applause. Now deservingly so because these guys can really play- in my opinion they are just as good any well known flamenco guitarist that I’ve personally heard. So what are they doing on […]

  • Street Guitar #9: Barcelona Duo Will Play Anywhere

    Here’s Tiberio Eduardo e Adrian Roman- two very talented street guitarists performing  in Barcelona Spain. The garbage cans are a real eye catcher. I hope the people passing by don’t throw their money there instead of the guitar case? The lead guitarist on the right has an interesting style where he is pulling off almost every note during solos. He uses it well along with long arpeggios – a nice unique touch that’s a little different than the usual Spanish […]

  • Street Guitar #4: Buskers In Barcelona

    I looked and couldn’t find the names of these two talented street guitarists….. I suppose the people passing by could have cared less, but we at Acoustic Guitar Videos think that guitarists like this shouldn’t be nameless. Here’s what the description at YouTube says… “How could I not put this one on? Anyway, it turned out okay and it’s better than listening to dry drivel. Apologies to all the dry drivellers! Anyway, notice the busker on the right. He has […]

  • John McLaughlin & Paco DeLucia: Beyond fast

    John McLaughlin & Paco DeLucia performing Spain. Is McLaughlin the fastest guitarist ever? The answer is no… there are faster players but, who cares after hearing him and Paco go at it in this now famous video. Later this duo would add Al Di Meola. Do you think that was necessary?

  • Tommy Emmanuel & Brad Paisley: Cannonball Rag- HOT STUFF

    Here’s guitar extraordinaire Tommy Emmanuel with Country star Brad Paisley performing Merle Travis’s “Cannonball Rag” at the Grand Ole Opry. For those of you that don’t know, this style of guitar fingerpicking is called “The Travis Style,” which is still very popular today. I also bet most people that hear Brad Paisley on top 10 country have no idea what a great guitarist he is (or care.. which is a shame really). Actually, this is the first time I’m hearing […]
