Red House

A few years back, my Dad had been watching the DVD of the Fender Stratocaster’s 50th anniversary. The concert featured a number of great guitar players, and the performances were mixed in quality. He sat me down and showed me some highlights, then he said to just sit back and enjoy this, which invitation I extend to you:

Yeah, well done Gary Moore, well done. Neither of us had heard of him, but man, that was one of the greatest covers I’ve ever seen. The man can play a mean blues guitar. I love the part around 5-8 minutes where he breaks it down and just works the guitar as it was meant to be used.

That’s all for now, I recommend watching that video on occasion, as it still gives me goosebumps every time I take 10 minutes to view it. I think Jimi would be proud to see his song treated with such respect.

  1. I love how into it he is-his facial expressions show it. This guy knows how to rock and is doing what he was born to do. I’d give one of my arms to play like that. Rock on, Gary. Rock on.

  2. What do you mean, work the guitar as it was meant to be used? You’ve got it all wrong. You’re supposed to learn 2-3 chords, 4 at the most, then go on MTV and call yourself a guitarist. Forget the talent, man. No, but seriously, I remember you sending me this video a couple years back. Good times!
