    Steve Morse: Acoustic Solo

    By Miche Archetto: Even though the the guitar in this video is very much processed, I would still regard this as an acoustic performance, mainly because of the fingerpicking technique mastered here by Steve Morse. In this live performance in New York in 1992, he played three pieces   “Northern Lights”, from Dixie Dregs’ Album “Free Fall” (1977) “Picture This”, a piece compised by Steve in 1991 for a guitar compilation “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring”, a transcription for guitar […]

So now you have this unlikely combination of Steve Morse and David Grisman… two icons… one very electric and the other very acoustic. Does it mix? Well, I’ll […]

  • Steve Morse- The Bash with the Dixie Dregs

    Okay, I promise NOT to post any more ELECTRIC GUITAR VIDEOS on ACOUSTIC GUITAR VIDEOS after this one. Here’s Steve Morse with three versions of the “Bash” I’m including three for the following reason: Listen how different the Steve’s solos are – I saw the Dregs live three days in a row and couldn’t believe the variations in the solos and even the arrangements. I wish there was a video out there that had Mark OConnor on the fiddle- that’s […]
