Emily and the Woods – Never Play Youtube

There are many acoustic guitar players who just want to play and sing and not necessarily play like virtuosos Vicente Amigo,  Pierre Bensusan, or Michael Hedges.  So I thought I’d do a number of short acoustic guitar articles / posts on some of the new singer guitarists who play material which sound  musical and is based around simple chord patterns.  The following tune is by Emily and the Woods called Never Play

John Butler Youtube Zebra

With the great success of the new John Butler Trio Album (Review) , I thought it would be a good idea to poat about his old tune called Zebra,  the tune that first put him on the musical map commercially.  One thing about John Butler’s music that sets him apart from many other players his his ability to appeal to the alternative rock audiebces as well as the commercial market and the roots and blues audience.  His concerts are currently selling out pretty fast in Europe.
