Listen Up! “G” is for Guitar

G

The guitar is part of the stringed instrument family, having anywhere from 4 to 18 strings, but usually with just 6. Those strings may be made of nylon or steel, and the sounds from each are distinctively different. Strummed or picked, acoustic or electric, the guitar is used in just about every musical genre.

Just as you have your favorite drummers, it’s hard to choose a favorite guitarist. Certainly counted among the best are Clapton, Harrison, Raitt, Les Paul, Freddy King, Stevie Ray, BB King, Jimi Hendrix.

And this guy, Lawson Rollins. Sit back and enjoy:

So many great guitarists and everyone has a personal favorite. Mine has to be ex-Genesis lead Steve Hackett, but I’m biased as he’s my best friend. Also like Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, but again that’s personal..

Great post and great video! Listing great guitarist is just as hard as listing great Science Fiction authors. You always find someone else that should be on the list. Carlos Santana, Chuck Berry, etc. ๐Ÿ™‚

The guitar is probably my favorite instrument. I got an acoustic guitar for my birthday last year. I can play a handful of chords…but the coolest thing is that I can play the intro to “Wish You Were Here”, by Pink Floyd. Not to shabby! Much better than my go at the harmonica! LOL

Nice. I can’t wait to see whst you come up with.

My husband’s instrument. He tried to teach me how to play, but it was a lot harder than it looked. Never got beyond the G chord. This is beautiful, Martha.

Thanks for the cool video. Never heard of Lawson Rollins before, but he shouldn’t be insulted. I’m not too savvy on my guitarists! He deserves to have lots of hits on his YouTube and should sell at least a million units of his album!

thank you for the guitar and nice piece… Welcome in the letter “G”… thank you!

There’s no earthly way of knowing.
Which direction we are going!

HOLLYWOOD NUTS!
Come Visit: You know you want to know if me or Hollywood… is Nuts?

What? No Wes Montgomery mention? Absolutely my favorite guitarists. Then again there are several great jazz guitarists I can think of.

I would love to be able to play the guitar they always make it look so easy in films where the characters just pick it up and strum the perfect tune

Thanks, Sue. I wanted to post something less familiar. Glad you enjoyed it!

I enjoyed this. The guitar is a very versatile instrument. There are some talented guitarists in my family. Sue
