An excellent performance of two of their best songs live from the MTV WMA awards from The Warning, they were the only band to perform live that were not receiving an award and the only band that did the performance in one take!

And

Enjoy @TheMadman_tobyjenner :metal:t2:

Popped up on my YT feed last night, I was mesmerised! 5 minute Slash blues solo :boom:

Over the past 10-15 years, I’ve built my personal collection of Slash’s live improvisations and this one is definitely one of the greatest ones from the Guns N’ Roses reunion tour.

Here’s another recent one (not the best solo from the 2022 tour, but currently not at my home computer to find the bookmar):

A fun fact (that I always share with anyone who mentions Slash and his improvisations):
Duff McKagan said in an interview that Slash goes into “a different plane” during his solos and that he watches his foot to see when “he is back”. Supposedly there’s a minor movement change or something.

I can’t watch his hands and foot at the same time!! :wink:

Wow, that was indeed mesmerizing!

Okay. I apologize in advance for replying to an almost 2-year old comment. But I’ve been enjoying listening to some resonator guitar lately, and then this comes up on the first page of this thread!

Come Together is one of my favorite Beatles songs. It’s the second Beatles song I learned the bass line to.

This video does not help the joke I asked a friend today. Which was, “Do I need to quit learning acoustic guitar and start on resonator instead?” :sweat_smile:

Lately, I’ve been coming back to a lot of Roy Clark on guitar. Like this piece. He was some kind of amazing.

Apparently, one of the last electric Hot Tuna shows:

This was just served up to me by the YT algorithm. I am sufficiently impressed.

Anyone listened to the new Stones album Hackney Diamonds? I would highly recommend doing so, it’s a great album without any fillers and the proof their signature sound is still relevant in 2023. The album features some interesting appearances, with Elton John, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and Bill Wyman being the most prominent ones.
