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
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
I'll shut up now.
Thanks Sid. I'd never heard of her, but she is amazing.
