Thought this was cool, this instrument sounds cool as hell. I love the lap style with the slide/bar. Kind of like what is used in Hawaiian music.
Isn’t that the guy that was in Roadhouse? The bar band in the movie?
Here’s another guy doing the lap slide style
I saw KJP about 20 years ago. It was just him solo and a couple different guitars. Was a really good/cool show.
Yeah thats him, was blinded at as kid, died young as well, in his 40s.
Very good, nice style.
I have never heard this man before, that I know of anyway, familiar voice though.
Making me want to listen to Gallagher now, its not slide and it not on the lap but man I love this gig.
I know hes not under rated either, should really post it in the other thread.
The solo around 45 sec mark is pretty slick
Same dude as above with Tommy E
love this thread
These two don't normally play together, but they are both outstanding younger guitarists on the rise...
Here's Billy dicking around on a D-28
This one is just Billy at a party. He didn't have a banjo with him, so he just played those parts on guitar.
Try to ignore the doof in the background. I dare you.
great stuff with Billy Strings. I’ve been following him for the past couple years. He is an incredible talent. The traditional bluegrass picking he does is something I really enjoy, and is some of what I try to learn on guitar. He’s young, but talent wise he is up there with the greats (Doc, Tony, Norman, Clarence, etc). He’s starting to branch out more now and spread his wings, I’ve been seeing him pop up all over the place now and showing up with all kinds of bands as a guest at their shows.
back in October I was lucky and a friend gave me a ticket to go see him here in Austin. It was crowded as fuck, but it was a great show!
Molly Tuttle is another young one that is a fantastic flatpicker. Her and Billy have done some stuff together, check the YouTubes!
