  • August Rex- Latin Folk from Sweden

    August Rex- Latin Folk from Sweden

    Here’s Swedish guitarist August Rex whose been featured here before at Acoustic Guitar Videos. (“Flaming Tune” ).   In this new video, August superimposes himself into three guys playing instruments around a kitchen table.  How did he do that??? Guy from Sweden playing Latin music? August told me that the main idea with this melody is to come as close to the Latin folklore sound as possible, though he admits that he has  never been in any of the South […]

  • Diknu Schneeberger Trio- Hot Gypsy Jazz

    Diknu Schneeberger Trio- Hot Gypsy Jazz

    Diknu Schneeberger Trio-Moonflower Here’s an example of a video that has a lot of views (50,000+) but was still difficult to locate (in other words, it didn’t just jump out as I was digging for vids). The playing here by the trio of guitarist Diknu Schneeberger, guitarist Martin Spitzer, and bassist Joschi Schneeberger is no less than fantastic… I’m sure the folks hearing this live at the club (somewhere in Germany?) were beyond thrilled. But who are these guys? Once again, the YouTube […]

  • Guitar Republic: Unconventional Trio

    Guitar Republic: Unconventional Trio

    Pino Forastiere, Stefano Barone and Sergio Altamura are for sure among the best Italian acoustic guitarists. Sergio is more into experimenting both with electronics and with unconventional tools like the bow is using in this performance. Stefano is focused on percussive techniques, and Pino is an accomplished all-round musician. “Guitar Republic” is the name of this trio as well as of the album they published in 2010. This performance was recorded in 2011 at the Canadian Guitar Festival, where they had […]

  • Montreal Guitar Trio – Garam Masala

    Montreal Guitar Trio – Garam Masala

    I think you will like this clip from the 2011 Edition of the Canadian Guitar Festival featuring the Montreal Guitar Trio. “When it comes to bridging diverse genres of music, the MG3, which CBC described as “the hottest guitar ensemble in Canada,” has quickly established itself as a force to be reckoned with. For more than 13 years, the trio’s virtuosity, rigor, creativity, and dynamic stage presence — they are noted for the wit and warmth of their interactions with audiences — […]

    Larry Coryell, Badi Assad & John Abercrombie

    Larry Coryell, Badi Assad & John Abercrombie – Three Guitars – Live New Morning Paris (Official) The Duo of Ralph Towner and John Abercrombie was one of my favorites years ago. The musicality was intense. So I run across this trio featuring Larry Coryell, Badi Assad & John Abercrombie and I figure… this has got to be good… right? Well yes, even though Badi Assad is not so much the soloist as Larry and John in this video, I love that […]

    Roberto Dalla Vecchia, Jim Hurst & Martino Coppo “F Joke” – vicenzA

    Chiara Sbicego from our facebook site sent this in and wrote to me the following: “Hi Bob! There’s Jim Hurst here in Italy in these days. He’ teaching at the Roberto Dalla Vecchia’s Acoustic Guitar Workshop. They have a small tour together after that. This is a video in which they’re playing one of Roberto’s song called “F Joke”. There’s also the italian mandolin player Martino Coppo.” Well Chiara, got to say this is very nice playing, and I bet […]

  • Tommy Emmanuel, Buster B. Jones, Duck Baker: Just Jammin’

    Tommy Emmanuel Duck Baker and Buster B. Jones 2000 Nine Pound Hammer Grab a beer, kick back, and let’s pick a few tunes. Here’s Tommy Emmanuel with the late Buster B. Jones and Duck Baker back in 2000 jammin’ back stage at CAAS (Chet Atkins Appreciation Society). This for me is what music is all about- having some fun and getting a chance to informally play with other musicians.  Some of the most memorable times of my life come from jam […]

  • Tommy Emmanuel Loren Barrigar & Mark Mazengarb:46 views

    Tommy Emmanuel is here with Loren Barrigar & Mark Mazengarb at a gig in France – Bordeaux 30/03/13 Can you believe only 46 views? Well it’s true. Probably because Tommy has saturated the market and anyone with a camera can go ahead and do a video of a Tommy show. Despite that, what do you think of Loren Barrigar & Mark Mazengarb? Some excellent playing here for sure.   Here’s another video by this trio that I am unable to share because the embed has been […]

    The boys jamming at CAAS 2010 Perhaps the best part of being at a guitar gathering, in this case the  Chet Atkins Appreciation Society, is getting to play or listen to the impromptu jamming that goes on. Here’s a jam session that happened at 2 am with three outstanding guitarists- From left to right, Adam Rafferty, Joe Robinson and Adam Palma. All of these guitarists have been separately featured here at Acoustic Guitar Videos. A fiddle player which nobody seems to know […]

Well here’s a vid clip from  ”Daylight Again” DVD that was uploaded 2011 on YouTube Crosby Stills and Nash were/are primarily known for their great songs and soulful harmonies, but they were very capable of doing really nice acoustic guitar backup and rhythm.

  • Mclaughlin / Delucia / Coryell – Meeting Of The Spirit

    Here’s the YouTube Description of this video: “In 1979 and 1980 three world renowned guitarists, recognised as the finest exponents of their individual styles, John McLaughlin, Larry Coryell and Paco De Lucia formed a guitar super-trio and toured Europe. The spell-binding quality of the music that the collaboration created as an ensemble and the dazzling audience reaction to the performances has never been surpassed and has rightfully passed into Jazz folklore. At long last an original, authenticated master of the […]

    Betsy Rome, Dan Carlucci, Korey Brodsky: Whiskey Before Breakfast Here’s a famous bluegrass song written by Norman Blake and performed at a show called “Fabulous Guitar Night” that happened a couple of years ago up in Connecticut featuring the above players. I hope Dan and Korey don’t mind but I’m gonna focus on guitarist Betsy Rome here. Betsy currently plays in a band called “Too Blue” that has really made some waves in this last year or two. Besides playing a […]

  • Marcin Dylla, Kupinski Perform Manuel M. Ponce

    Marcin Dylla, Kupinski Perform Manuel M. Ponce

    MARCIN DYLLA & KUPINSKI GUITAR DUO MANUEL M. PONCE – CONCIERTO DEL SUR: III ALLEGRO MODERATO E FESTIVO: In classical music, the credit usually goes to the composer, in this case Manuel M. Ponce who was a Mexican composer that lived from 1882 to 1948. The YouTube description says this is performed by The Marcin Dylla and Kupinski duo… however there are 3 guitarists here. Fat chance at the odd one out getting any credit (see what I mean). The […]

  • Crosby, Stills & Nash – Marrakesh Express Acoustic and Live

    Here’s a live acoustic concert by Crosby, Stills & Nash featuring their hit “Marrakesh Express .” What’s interesting here is the lack of views (only 13 as of my viewing). Perhaps this is due to the fact that this song and performance was only uploaded to YouTube on September 19, 2012 but, you would think that an act as big as Crosby, Stills & Nash would pull much bigger numbers. What I’ve always liked about this group was the songs […]

  • Mark O’Connor and Chet Atkins – “Nashville Now”

    Here’s Mark O’Connor along with Chet Atkins back in 1983 on Ralph Emery’s “Nashville Now” TV show. If you think back to how long ago that was, Mark couldn’t have been more than 20.. and how bout  Chet  (looks so young). Back then, the acoustic guitar plug in choice was an Ovation, as most of the acoustic guitars out there didn’t come with a built in pickup.  Ovations were not only good for amplification but, the action on those guitars […]

  • Street Guitar #6: Street Trio Performs “In The Mood”

    Here’s a trio of street guitarists performing Glen Miller’s  ”In The Mood.” The video creator says it was shot in La Rambla, Barcelona. The guy in the middle and on right are trading off here with solos, and the guy on the left is doing walking bass lines primarily. The video is not of the whole song but gives you an idea of what a Spanish trio sounds like on an American classic not set for the guitar. Apparently Barcelona […]

  • Dicky Betts, Greg Allman Play Acoustics

    If you were into guitars back in the 70′s and 80′s, you couldn’t help but be aware of the Allman Brothers band that also featured guitarist Dicky Betts. The harmony guitar melodies they played were a trademark sound that influenced many southern rock bands. Not only influential but, major hit instrumental songs that you still hear on the radio and the media today. But how does that stuff (slow southern rock harmony guitar leads) sound on acoustic? I was able […]

  • Wyatt Rice-David Grier-Kenny Smith

    Wyatt Rice-David Grier-Kenny Smith

    This is a very cool video of Tony Rice’s younger brother Wyatt, David Grier (son of banjoist Lamar Grier) and Kenny Smith. All players are well known in the bluegrass and flatpicking world, and each player has something a little different to say on the guitar. I say a little different because they are all still basically playing out of the Clarence White, Rony Rice school of flatpicking. You would have to look far and wide these days to find […]

  • Earl, Doc and Ricky: “Who Will Sing For Me”

    For those of you that are not so familiar with bluegrass music, gospel music has played a major role in the formation of its form. This song, “Who Will Sing For Me” is as old as the hills, and represents a style that dates back before bluegrass, the stuff that Doc and Earl were listening to when they grew up.  Ricky? Well he’s younger but grew up hillbilly as well where music was perhaps the second most important thing in […]

  • Doc Chet and Leo Kottke- Just Having Fun

    Here’s Doc, Chet and a young Leo Kottke pickin the Last Steam Engine Train, obviously backstage somewhere unspecified. Doc’s guitar could make a funeral into a happy occasion, his warmth and banter with his fellow musicians is always something you could look forward to at any of his shows. Kind of what’s cool about this video is watching Chet Atkins, who seems to go out of his element by playing Les Paul style licks instead of what we would normally […]

  • Week in Tribute: Paco de Lucia, with John McLaughlin and Al Di Meola (Video V)

    Here’s Paco with John McLaughlin and Al Di Meola performing Mediterranean Sundance. For those of you that don’t know, these three guitarist have done more to popularize the virtuosity of the acoustic guitar than perhaps anyone else on the planet. Oh yea, you might find videos of acoustic guitarist that have 8 billion views but, the combination of Paco, McLaughlin and Di Meola was and still is considered the ultimate meeting of the best of the best in the world […]
