Bert Jansch Youtube – Pentangle Guitar Player

Bert Jansch was part of the folk boom in the late sixties in Britain.  He was a member of the band Pentangle, the band that also had the guitar  great John Renbourn.  His style is a little unique, he plays with a slight ‘snap’ to his playing.  When you listen closely, you’ll also hear some of the musical elements that Jimmie Page used in his acoustic playing.  I got to see both Bert and the great late John Martyn in the 1980’s, absolutely awesome experience.  The tune Bert is playing is Black Waterslide.

Dan Crary Youtube Sally Goodin

Many guitar players like myself are familiar with Dan Crary from when he used to write his column in Guitar Player magazine in the seventies. At that time Guitar Player mag was one of the best educational resources for players, there was not a lot of material easily available like there is these days.  Today we have an abundance of info for guitar players ranging from brilliany and inspiring to ‘what the?’

Dan Crary has a flawless flatpicking technique and he has inspired millions of players across the globe.  This tune is called Sally Goodin (Gooden, Good’n)

Antoine Dufour Acoustic Guitar Youtube Video

Over the last few years a number of acoustic guitar players who play open tuned guitar, one of my favourites who are continuing the michael Hedges tradition, is Antoine Dufour.  He seems to be one of the most musical players who do this style.  He manages to place the sound and music first and does not get lost in guitar acrobatics.  The tune is called Mother
