Anyway, in stealing the idea, I'm going to post videos of guitar players I admire, and for the first I'm going back to the beginning of rock, when it was still rock n roll or rockabilly. Hope you like it, and, for any younger readers, learn how good what came before was...
|Elvis Scotty and Bill and on the right at Sun with Sam Phillips|
Unfortunately there was no such thing as a video, at least the way we know it now in the fifties or sixties or seventies and eighties for that matter. But I did find a couple videos of early TV appearences that show Scotty performing with Elvis and Bill Black slapping the heck out of his bass.
This one is Elvis, Scotty and Bill doing Heartbreak Hotel
Here Elvis, Scotty and Bill do Tutti Frutti
Moving to now, Scotty is older but still playing, playing up a storm, and there are videos of him with other artists.
Scotty Moore with Eric Clapton doing Mystery Train
Scotty Moore and Eric Clapton doing That's Alright Mama
I hope you enjoy listening to one of the first Rock n Roll lead guitar players.
