Jan Akkerman Youtube Semi Acoustic

Jan Akkerman was a member of Focus, think Hocus Pocus in the seventies and seeing him live back then was by far one of the highlights of my musical life.  His tone on electric guitar back then was sweeter than most, the only others I could compare to would be Leslie West or Santana for sweetness. 

On this Youtube video, Jan Akkerman is playing a semi-acoustic with f holes, it’s close enough for me to be acoustic guitar and if you are a guitar aficionado you’ll appreciate this.  It’s very jazz ballady in parts.
