Love George, and seeing him with Joe Sample was interesting ... but this is not the best example of GB's great playing. I enjoyed watching, though. Thanks for the link, PJM!

Ha! Isn't that the Puss-n-boots character from Shrek? Perfect!

Sorry, I don't mean to be difficult -- just commenting on the thread.

As much as I love George's playing I always felt that whole concert video must have caught him on somewhat of an off night, off for George that is. I've heard him play way better live. I think that's why when artists record live albums or DVD's they usually record more than one show and pick the best performances just in case. That one appears to be recorded all in one night. Most players would be ecstatic to play that well but for George I think it was a bit of an off night. IMO

I like the clip . . . I love GB . . . he IS music . . .

I also like the translucent tape over the f-holes of his guitar . . .

His guitars look like they're stuffed with foam too, or at least by the f-holes.
