In my opinion, the most exciting guitar playing ever to feature on a
record released as a single. Still stunning 50 years later.

Agreed that it's still stunning and it's a very strong contender.

What really reaches into us and moves us is very personal, but I would
like also to submit for consideration two more singles which I think
rival VC in that category:
Layla - Clapton playing with Derek and the Dominoes
and
Need Your Love So Bad - Peter Green playing with Fleetwood Mac[1]


[1]Maybe "exciting" isn't quite the word, but there's something about
PG's touch on that record which touches my heart every time. How I wish
he'd never gone to Munich.

Clapton's playing on Layla was great, and there's a live version on
YouTube where he's accompanied by Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck. I totally
agree about Peter Green. Have you ever heard Ollie Halsall? The drummer
in his band, John Halsey, also drummer with The Rutles once said of him
"Ollie might not be the best guitarist in the world, but he's certainly
one of the best two." Personally, I rate him higher than that.

Another exhibition of guitar virtuosity by Hendrix was his version of
Jonny B Goode, I don't think it was ever released as a single, but it
makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up to this day.

Gosh yes - I remember that and must listen to it again. Far too long
since I did.

What gets me going most often these days is brilliant acoustic playing -
probably because I'm a rubbish acoustic player myself. Any number of
the old bluesmen, like Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Blake, Robert
Johnson and others, plus more recent virtuosi like Bert Jansch, John
Renbourn, Leo Kottke, Doc watson, Stefan Grossman, Chris Smither...loads
of 'em.

In the High And Far Off Times (i.e. a few months ago) when going to
concerts was occasionally possible, I heard and saw Molly Tuttle play
White Freightliner Blues from a few feet away. Just the memory of it
does the hairs on the back of the neck thing for me. Here she is playing
it at Kilkenny:


I'll shut up now.

I was at a most interesting talk session at Sidmouth Folk
Festival a few years ago with Heather Wood, who seemed to have
had a very varied and interesting life. She said that she didn't
take up the guitar, since she was living in the same house as
John Renbourn and Bert Jansch.

I go with a group of friends to Transatlantic Sessions each year; she
was a guest a couple of years ago which is where I found out about her.
I was very impressed, but seeing her from close range at Bush Hall was
extraordinary.

She was the first woman to win the "Bluegrass Guitarist Of The Year"
award. Sierra Hull was at TS in February this year, was also brilliant
and is the first woman to win the "Bluegrass Mandolin Player of the
Year" award. They are two members of The First Ladies of Bluegrass, all
five of whom were the first woman to be named Instrumentalist of the
year on their respective instrument. They really are jolly good:

luncheon meat and onions I suppose.

Don't know yet, don't know yet and no, respectively. I think the Proms
and Three Choirs Festival are unlikely to take place in their usual form
if at all - but that's an uninformed view and your guess is as good as mine.

Can ‘Zoom’ cope with the contributions of a few thousand prommers I wonder?
A ‘virtual orchestra’ plus prommers - that would be quite a technical feat!

A broadcast will be... um... er... broadcasted?

Now don't tell anyone I said this, but I won't miss the Edinburgh
Festival. It could be a bit overwhelming.

I agree. I think it started off being rather parochial but now major
international stars are featured. But the locals still keep their end up!

I have been present when two of your daughters sang Spem in alium with
The Tallis Scholars and it was one of the most memorable concerts I have
ever been to. Am I right that all three sang this time?

I thought you might enjoy it. Yes, all three (or all nine) were there.
