  • 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 […]

  • Street Guitar #3: Yevgeny from Russia

    Here’s a full time street guitarist from Russia by the name of Yevgeny playing what his friend that shot the video (on aSony HDR CX550VE camcorder) calls “a beautiful classical spanish tune on guitar with his new AER amplifier.” It takes him a little while to get going as he is selling some CD’s… (business first)… But hang on because his playing is worth the wait, as Yevgeny is a master at classical style guitar. Notice the great tone he […]

  • Street Guitar #2: Lucas Alverez

    #2 in our CONTINUING SERIES: STREET GUITARIST Here’s a street guitarist by the name of Lucas Alverez. The YouTube author says it was taken near Florida Street in Buenos Aires. If technical skills and proficiency (AKA CHOPS) are an indicator of how much money a street musician gets, then Lucas should be raking in the cash, as he is able to cleanly go up and down with his arpeggios in the Gypsy Jazz style of guitar. You’d have to wonder […]

  • Street Guitarist Performs Classical

    This is the first of a handful of videos entitled “Street Guitarist” that we will be running consecutively here at Acoustic Guitar Videos. I have a special place in my heart for these musicians since I at one point way back when in France, we had no money for gas to drive to our next gig -  had to open a case and play in a crowded open air market. The technology for playin’ the streets has become quite sophisticated, as this guys […]

  • OSCAR MENDEZ- DOS CAMINOS

    Here’s Oscar Mendez with a piece entitled “Dos Caminos.” Oscar was kind enough to share his latest video over at our facebook.com/acousticguitarvideos and it got a great response. According to Oscar, in Colombia where he is from… “the fingerstyle music is not common at all.” I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not…good I suppose when you can corner the market, bad if no one understands or likes it (I’ve played bluegrass music my whole life so I […]

  • Doyle Dykes- Best Guitarist Ever?

    What a thing to say, best guitarist ever… That was the title of this video on YouTube.. Why would someone dare title a video with such a claim? Well, the truth is- the title or headline as it’s often called is the “hook” that reels the viewer in. A catchy hook or something that seems outrageous is most certainly going to bring the masses of people to view. In this case, the title brought over 3.5 million viewers, whereas Doyle’s other videos which were […]

  • Smoking Joe Wows Australias Got Talent Show

    Check this kid out. If you’ve never played in a guitar contest before, you could only imagine the nerves of steel this kid has to do what he is doing in front of this audience and judges. For some reason, a contest can make the most comfortable person on stage into a bundle of nerves- (I speak from first hand experience). Here’s a little background on myself with contests: 2 for 3 meaning, won 2 and lost 1 (in other words […]

  • Doyle Dykes Rips Into Fingerpickin’ Country

    Doyle Dykes reminds me of an American version of Tommy Emmanuel. Obviously has that Chet Atkins country sound and flavor to his playing but also has more chops than Chet. Okay, let’s call Doyle “Chet on Steroids.” Doyle is a one man wrecking crew and takes no prisoners when he plays- What I mean by that statement is, he has that firm and aggressive touch- even on slower style songs (which I will feature here soon and you’ll hear). And just when he […]
