    Listen to the Unreleased Stairway To Heaven Re-Mix

After reading this article, I have included a link below to hear The Stairway To Heaven Re- Mix ____________________________________________________________________________ For those of you that learned how to play the guitar back in the 60′s and 70′s as I did, there’s a better than good chance that one of the first songs you learned was “Stairway To Heaven” by […]

    Mike Keneally: Tribute to Frank Zappa

    By Miche Archetto: Here is a great live performance of Mike Keneally, polystrumentist and former “stunt guitarist” of Frank Zappa. He plays a rendition of “Inca Roads” by Zappa, beating hard his acoustic guitar. At the end he also brilliantly faces the problem with a broken string: what a showman! “Michael Joseph Keneally (born December 20, 1961) is an American guitarist, keyboardist, vocalist and composer. Allmusic says: “With his wide-ranging talents and ability to be creative in almost any musical […]

    Tesla: Unplugged Pioneers

    By Miche Archetto:   In July 1990 the hard rock group Tesla, then at the peak of their success, gave a charity concert in Philadelphia. They chose an acoustic setup instead of the usual heavily electric gear. The concert was such a success that it was then released as a new album entitled “Five men acoustical jam”. Here is the acoustical rendition of their success “Before my eyes”, first appeared in their debut album “Mechanical resonance”. According to wikipedia, this […]

  • Richie Kotzen: No Fear To Change

    Richie Kotzen: No Fear To Change

    By Miche Archetto: Here is rock singer and guitarist Richie Kotzen playing his song called “Fear” with an acoustic guitar. Richie is well known for his electric guitar shredding technique, but on youtube you can find many videos where he prefers to go acoustic. Actually it is interesting that, according to this interview, in 2008 he decided to abandon picks completely and to abruptly switch to fingerpicking. At the end of the interview he says that “losing the pick made […]

  • Jimmy Page- Acoustic- Going To California

    Jimmy Page- Acoustic- Going To California

    Here’s Led Zeppelin, or should I say Robert Plant with Jimmy Page and a mandolinist with Going To California. I’ve always loved this song and this version is just as good as the original. Robert Plant of course has got an incredible voice- one that you can recognize in one line. Sorry to say that I can’t do that with a lot of the singers I’m hearing on the radio today. Perhaps there’s a few of them, but I just […]

    Matteo Gobbato: Smoke On The Water

    Smoke on the water (fingerstyle) with the new GSmini – Arr. Matteo Gobbato There’s a good chance that if you are over 40 years or older and play the guitar, “Smoke On The Water” was one of the songs you tried to play when you first started out. So I don’t know if a lot of your friends or guitar players you knew told you that you had to learn how to play a bar chord in order to play […]

    Chit San Maung: Burmese Guitar Hero

    By Miche Archetto: Here is Chit San Maung (also spelled Mung) playing an acoustic guitar. Chit San Mung is a guitar virtuoso from Myanmar (or Burma) and lead guitarist of Iron Cross, the most popular Burmese rock band. Here he flatpicks an intro solo and then he switches to fingerpicking to play the famous Bourrée by J. S. Bach (from the Lute Suite no. 1, BWV 996), and than he concludes with another outro solo. If you like this video, […]

  • Bon Jovi Does Acoustic

    Bon Jovi Does Acoustic

      Bon Jovi Unplugged full concert I wouldn’t exactly call this virtuosic acoustic guitar playing but, in it’s simplicity and because it’s acoustic, I really enjoyed this Bon Jovi “Unplugged” full concert. Technically it is not unplugged but, it is acoustic guitars with pickups. The problems that would be involved with trying to mic the acoustics with this full band would not be worth the trouble – a nightmare for sure for the sound engineer. Basically once you add drums, […]

  • Stefano Barbati fingerpicks Jimi Hendrix

    Stefano Barbati: The Wind Cries Mary By Miche Archetto:   Stefano Barbati is an eclectic solo guitar player. Here is one of his best arrangements available on youtube: The Wind Cries Mary. I’ve found this a very impressive and tasteful blend of fingerpicking, percussive techniques, harmonics, and nice chords.   Here is his bio from his official website: “Stefano Barbati is an eclectic Italian guitar player. His technique is inspired by great acoustic guitar masters like Michael Hedges, Tuck Andress […]

  • Craig Chaquico: “Plugged In” Acoustic

    Craig Chaquico Acoustic Highway John Hill over at our facebook site recommended I watch a few videos on Craig Chaquico. I did- I was impressed. This particular video was shot live at Dosey Doe-The Woodlands, TX 6-5-10 Craig really reminds me more of an electric guitarist at times, but does have a nice touch on the acoustic. And with his primarily plugged in sound and a Thinline guitar, he’s able to add some nice effects to the guitar that mesh and […]

  • Tommy Emmanuel Plays Hendrix- Purple Haze

    It’s downright amazing to me how many people love Jimi Hendrix. Amazing in that his popularity still seem so huge despite the fact that he’s been gone for some 40 odd years. Well, here’s guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel with his version of the Jimi Hendrix song “Purple Haze.” If you are not familiar with Tommy Emmanuel, I might first ask where have you been, and then suggest looking at some more videos of Tommy that are even more amazing than […]

    Gareth Pearson – Jan The Man (live session) 2013 Rob Poland over at CandyRat Records was kind enough to share this vid with us here at Acoustic Guitar Videos. Rob says this  song entitled “Jan The Man” was written for Dutch Guitarist Jan Akkerman. What, you don’t know who Jan Akkerman is? Here’s a brief bio: “Jan was a member of Johnny and his Cellar Rockers, The Hunters (with whom he scored the 1966 Dutch pop hit “Russian Spy and I”) […]

  • Jimmy Page: Rock Royalty On Acoustic

    Jimmy Page: Black Mountain Side Miche Archetto over at our facebook sister site found these Jimmy Page videos and shared it with us. This first video only has 773 views…. does that mean we’re some of the first to see it? Well, probably not. Most of these type of videos came from a television show, series or from a VCR. With the laws as such, sure seems like you could make up a video about anyone or anybody and not have […]

  • Joe Bonamassa – The Drama of Guitar

    Joe Bonamassa Acoustic Guitar I kept seeing a lot of videos pop up while looking around at other videos of this guy named Joe Bonamassa. Well, never heard him before so I thought I’d give it a try. Well, Joe can fill a concert hall. Joe can rock out on the acoustic.. Joe can sing… And Joe has all the drama that this packed theater really reacts to. I guess if you are into that sort of thing… I’m used […]

  • Dickey Betts/The Allman Brothers: Jamming In The Hotel Room

    Life on the road is not always so easy. Most of the time all you are doing is traveling from one gig to the next- either in a bus or perhaps something a little bit more comfortable. But there are a lot of fun times… Here’s one of those moments caught on video- it’s with Dickey Betts, Chuck Leavell, Dan Toler on guitar who was with the Brothers for a time. The song is called Danny Blue

    Monte Montgomery “Moonlight Tango” / Winter ASGN 2010 “Monte Montgomery takes to the stage with a tune named “Moonlight Tango” during Muriel Anderson’s “All Star Guitar Night” charity event at the OC Pavilion Theater in Santa Ana, CA.” When we think of the acoustic guitar, we think of sweet subtle nuances of sounds, light and airy melodies… all the things that an electric guitar is not. Well, Monte Montgomery has effectively taken the acoustic guitar, and turned it into an […]

    Slash & Myles Kennedy – Sweet Child O’ Mine – Rare Acoustic Here’s one for all you Slash fans, a rare acoustic performance of  Sweet Child O’ Mine which also features Myles Kennedy – Live Max Session Now I got to admit, I’m not so up on this form of music anymore and it has nothing to do with my age.. It’s my love for the acoustic guitar… and even though the acoustic is certainly a part of rock/pop music, […]

  • PETE TOWNSHEND: “Behind Blue Eyes”

    Seems like a lot of these classic rock stars eventually pull out an acoustic and do one of those “unplugged tours.” This of course is Pete Townshend from The Who performing “Behind Blue Eyes,” a song he wrote for his “Lifehouse” Project.   Here’s some more info on the song itself: “The song starts off with a solo voice singing over an arpeggiated acoustic guitar. A bass guitar and ethereal harmonies are added in later. Eventually, the song breaks out into a […]

  • Bruce Springsteen Turns Street Musician

    Here’s Bruce Springsteen Live out in the streets in Copenhagen 23-07-1988 This is obviously from some time ago… you’ might wonder if Bruce would do such a thing today? I’ll have some conjecture here in a moment… The songs he’s doing here are as follows: I’m on Fire, the River and Dancing in the Dark in the Streets of Copenhagen. Okay, here’s some personal info about Bruce that may be of interest to you. Musician buds of mine who played […]

  • Little Brother Eli – Distinctive Sound From This New UK Band

    This is the second video that I’m posting by the band Little Brother Eli, a UK band that is now probably my favorite folk/rock band. In this second video, they’ve added some additional musicians which includes Linus Taylor – slide guitar and Benji Page – shoe box (percussion) Both of these guys are excellent additions! One of the things that I’m so impressed with Little Brother Eli is their SOUND… no not the audio (although I like that too) , the sound […]

  • Ben Woods: Heavy Metal Flamenco

    Heavy Metal Flamenco? Is there such a thing? According to Ben Woods, there is. Blane Ebersold over at our sister site facebook.com/acousticguitarvideos located this video and sent this in. At first I though… no … can’t be… But it’s true… In this video, guitarist Ben Woods has arranged a Flamenco interpretation of the heavy metal classic ”I am a Viking” by Yngwie Malmsteen. But it doesn’t stop there… Ben is also working on notation and tablature for many Metal Classics on solo spanish guitar […]

  • David Gilmour: Wish You Were Here Acoustic

    David Gilmour: Wish You Were Here Acoustic

    Here’s David Gilmore with “Wish You Were Here- Acoustic… The video describes this as being live and unplugged. But if you have seen some of the videos here at Acoustic Guitar Videos, you probably have read that I have a little bit of an issue with the term “unplugged,” if the acoustics are indeed plugged in. Unplugged would be playing without plugging in (obvious) or through a microphone. Nonetheless, this is an enjoyable video for you Pink Floyd fans that […]

  • Little Brother Eli – Awkward Positions [LIVE]

    Little Brother Eli – Awkward Positions [LIVE]

    When I first heard this I though  hum.. these guys remind me of a famous classic rock band from the past. Well, I’m guessing you will know the group I’m talking about. The guitarist is not playing the most complex stuff here, neither is the bass player. But you know, it sure sounds good and it’s LIVE. So when these guys go out to do a gig, you can expect them to sound pretty close to this (minus the nice condenser […]
