1987 video of Mark and Chet playing together. Two generations of mutual respect and love of the guitar. Note the two different styles of finger picking. Chet with his ever present thumb pick and long nails and Mark with bare flesh. No doubt that Mr. Atkins was a huge influence on Mark Knopfler………Imagine that.
Cool video with long time family friends Steve Miller and Les Paul performing the T Bone Shuffle at the Iridium Jazz Club in NYC. Watch it through, to a touching tribute from Steve to his Godfather Les…
Fantastic video of three of my musical hero’s. Frank Vignola (archtop guitar), Tommy Emmanuel (acoustic guitar) and Matt Flinner (mandolin). Hang on to your hat and away we go…………………
How many will admit they are old enough to remember the very cool musical showcase… The Midnight Special.
A very young Bonnie Raitt does what she does so well on an old Gibson ES175 (how cool is that!), while the rest of the band cooks on Del Shannon’s hit …Runaway. Check out Norton Buffalo’s harmonica magic show!
Inspired by the animated music video Pipe Dream by Animusic:
Intel Embedded Computing engineers teamed up with Austin-based Sisu to turn that animation into a real computerized paint ball orchestra. The Intel Industrial Control in Concert piece was unveiled at the Intel Developer Forum in September 2011. Built with seven Intel Atom processors, running three different operating systems, security camera system, sensors, touchscreen and other technologies, the project was completed in just 90 days at a cost of about $160,000.
