The album isn't in iTunes, but most of the individual songs are. I went through them and really liked these two.

  • James Clarke - Blow Up A Go-Go
  • Mongo Santamaria - Cloud Nine

I've added them to my music shopping list. The next time I go on a spree I'll take a closer look at both the songs and artists.

Thanks.

It's not a genre that I've gotten into much, so other than a little Jimmy Hendrix I don't have anything of the ilk to add to the list.

Guitar Mostly

This is my Guitar Mostly playlist. Stared (*) items are entire albums. While there are occasionally other instruments or vocals, the emphasis is on great an/or original guitar solos and combos. {the real list has one or two banjo pieces, but I've removed them here for simplisity's sake}

* Adrian Legg - Fingers and Thumbs
* Adrian Legg - Guitar Bones
* Adrian Legg - Inheritance
* Adrian Legg - Waiting for a Dancer
* Al di Meola, John McLaughlin & Paco de Lucía - Passion, Grace & Fir
* Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin, Paco De Lucia - Friday Night in San Francisco
l
* Chet Atkins- Chet Atkins - Guitar Legend: The RCA Years
Black Mountain Rag - Chet Atkins - The Master and His Music
Blue Angel - Chet Atkins - The Master and His Music
.......

I am enjoying your list. Adrian Legg has a very similar playing style to John Williams. I am looking at buying AL's Inheritance album.

Then, Al di Meola, John McLaughlin & Paco de Lucía are great. We watched their performance on the Pavarotti and Friends TV show. Here is a Utube clip.

I'm not so sure about Michael Hedges at present. I need to listen to some more of his playing.

I'm so glad you rate Chet Atkins. Snowbird is a great number. Then, what about Bert Weedon?

It's a great playlist

Thanks for the clip. I now have 4 favorites in YouTube. I don't use the site much. ;)

I'll look into John Williams and Bert Weedon. Thanks for the tip.

Michael Hedges does some pretty strange things at times, but the songs I like best are Ritual Dance, Ragamuffin, and Aerial Boundaries. You might want to take a listen to The Funky Avocado too. It almost fits in with your Club Music. Besides, it's fun. Here's the clip that I like best, for the sound quality, not the lack of video.

After some searching, I finally found the John Williams that plays guitar, rather than the one who writes movie scores (which are some of the best). (If they are a different person?) I'm probably going to add him to the playlist eventually.

I like Bert Weedon, and may get a couple albums. But while the guitar is prominent I don't think it stands alone enough in most of his songs to be added to the Guitar Mostly playlist. Though there were a couple of songs that will probably end up there, once I have time and money to spare.
