Emotional guitar solo by Guus LaPorte (Barrelhouse)


Last night I saw the Dutch blues group Barrelhouse playing at Bitterzoet in Amsterdam. I have seen many great guitarists performing, Like Jimi Hendrix (an unforgettable experience) , Eric Clapton (when he was really good in 1968) and Jeff Beck (With Rod Stewart at the Sunbury on Thames festival in the UK in 1968).  I thought great guitar playing was a bit outdated. How wrong can you be? Yesterday I saw one of the guitar players of Barrelhouse Guus Laporte playing an outstanding emotional  solo. One of best emotional guitar solos I ever heard. The quality of the video is not very good but the sound is incredible and that is what it is all about.
