If you like that can I suggest Jon Gomm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cj7yFt8rhrI
- he's also done a lot of lessons on youtube if you're interested in learning to play in that style

Can't let this thread pass by without giving Antonio Forcione a mention - he was spellbinding live:

A huge thank you to everyone for all those links. I've just spent the last 30 minutes with my mouth hanging wide open in utter shock and disbelief.

I taught myself classical guitar when I was 18, taught myself to read music but never got beyond about grade 5 standard.

Half the things in these videos, I never knew were possible.

Absolutely unbelievable!!!

Those clips are fabulous - so talented.

This one is quite good fun - not quite as advanced as the others, but still nice to watch once he really gets going after a couple of minutes.

That's going back to the dawn of youtube!

Going back even further and, while it's still guitar, entirely different

Only found out about Lenny Breau in the last year or so (despite having worked professionally in the music industry since 1982...)
Stunning player...https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... enny+breau

Guthrie Govan should get a mention too really, a particular favourite here (1st take apparently, which is just ridiculous...).

Another one that particularly impressed me recently...
Rolf Lislevand plays A.Stradivari Sabionari, 1679 guitar - Santiago de Murcia - Tarantela

Yes, utterly ridiculous!...check out the stuff he does with Hans Zimmer live too, very impressive.

Guthrie is one of those child prodigy types, never practises between gigs apparently...

I love that his control of English is on a par with his guitar playing

Watching it on TV it didn't make sense; and some other channel was being videoed so I couldn't go back and watch it again
- I had to wait for the internet and youtube

There is something glorious about how bored he looks and how un-flashy it is
-the only other player I've seen manage it that well is Guthrie Govan and I'm not sure he's human
