Jose Gonzalez - Teardrop
An example of very powerful music generated with very little. I believe that Teardrop was first performed by Massive Attack and that this is a cover.
Headphones or decent speakers as usual.
Jeff Monkman (unknown) performing an acoustic version of Southern Pacific originally by Neil Young. You can hear the train if you listen closely.
Whilst others watch TV I spend hours with my headphones on seeking out videos of ordinary people playing their guitars. There is some wonderful work out there. He is playing a Martin OOO15 SM. A fine instrument and almost the same as the Sigma that I have just bought. The detail in the guitar playing is fantastic and it records really well. He plays a Martin dreadnought in other videos which does not sound as good.
Both players are using dropped tunings.
(Gonzalez is playing an Alhambra)
