Jeff Beck: center stage

“…I’ve no regrets,” insists Beck. “Let’s face it, I’m centre-stage, the ticket’s got my name on it, I go out and play and there’s no singing. Who wants to swap that for being part of someone else’s band?” Interview here.

Old site…

Geeez…I inadvertently came across my old classic guitar site during a classical guitar search on Google. I had completely forgot about it. The last entry was in June 2007. now if I could only remember the password or even the email address I used I could freshen it up a bit (yeah, alas, my mind is going…)

Erkan Ogur

Here’s a little item on Turkish guitar innovator Erkan Ogur, who’s making a rare U.S. appearance. Back in 1976 Ogur developed the “fretless guitar.”

Boogie woogie

Though there’s no guitar in it this is one of my favorite music videos. You might call it  boogie woogie with feet. Yeah, piano, feet, bass, and drums. Very addictive. Called “Dancin’ The Boogie” by Swiss composer and performer Silvan Zingg, it’s danced to by world class dance  champions William and Maéva.
