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.

    I was going thru my vinal a couple of weeks back and came across “Stepping Stones” (Bert Jansch / John Renbourne) which is still in flawless condition (AR Turntable) and, next thing I know – Neil Young is comming to Knoxville, and Bert will be the opening performance – amazing!
    What was even better was the performance (last evening). Bert was astonishing.
    Neil badly needed a sound engineer. Was the distortion part of the act?
    BTW – the Bert Jansch opening hour had perfect acoustics. The landscapes he painted with his fingerboard gave me chills. Transported me to an other time altogether – a delightful departure from the acoustic trends extant. And a nostalgic rush to be sure.
