OK – the master of the dobro, Senor Jerry Douglas (or as I call him -MISTAH Dudleth). Hope you enjoy it.

And the best of acoustic – Richard Thompson with the 1952 Vincent Black Lightening.

I just saw Sympathy for the Devil in your post. I love that song. We saw them at PacBell Park a few years ago. It was possibly the best concert I have ever been to. I have gone to a lot of concerts but they are spectular. before I went to the concert I was not a big fan. I am now. They were so high energy and we had perfect seats. It rained all day but the clouds cleared right above the park for the whole concert.

Excellent choice! Most people don’t think of Steely Dan as a guitar band but this song has some really sweet guitar work.

LFer, absolutely. Most of SD’s guitar work is on the jazzy side, but the guitar work on Reelin is some great R&R guitar.

I always liked this version of Layla much better than his remake on Unplugged.

Hi KT, just popped by before I start on the lunch. Love the Spanish classical and gypsy flamenco guitar pieces. They make me want to hold a rose between my teeth, and stomp around the house. 😉

Have a good evening.
