Flamenco played on electric guitar with a pick

This is an unusual combination–electric guitar with classical guitar machine head,  no sound hole, no visible pickup (transducer?), plectrum technique… then finger technique…–when it comes to flamenco guitar playing. Though perhaps it’s too far afield for Flamenco purists (e.g., Montoya or Sabicas affectionadoes), it’s still pretty interesting. ; the guitarist is Steve Stevens.

Strange case

Suddenly, somebody is trying to silence him…All he 16502125wants to do is play for people, but the child prodigy may be getting too good too soon because he’s already making some mysterious — and possibly dangerous — enemies.”  And now the government Labor Board is after him…And also keep in mind that his agent is getting death threats. Read story here.

YouTube’s Mr Funtwo

The Korean guitarist was featured on Youtube Live, and even the NY Times got into the act, officially welcoming him as a guitar hero. He also has his own Wikipedia entry.

There’s a lot more of these videos at Youtube. We need a Guitar Tube.
