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

Ian Anderson Jethro Tull Youtube

In the early seventies Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull was voted in a survey the man that mothers would least like their daughters to hgo out with.  Obviously at that time they were not aware of the beautiful antique parlor guitar collection that he would one day have.  Although many people know Ian Anderson as a flute player and Martin Barre as the guitarist of Tull, Ian’s acoustic guitar playing has had an impact on a lot of players. Although simple in style it is always very musical.  In this youtube video clip Ian does the classic song Wondering Aloud which was originally on the Aqualung album. In this case the line up is a small ensemble. I all those mums saw it today, they’d  probably say “How nice!”

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.
