Thanks!!!

Embedding a vid must be a dark art with the secrets of such held dear upon bodily harm.
Actually it's very easy.

Cut and paste the You Tube video URL that is in the address bar of your browser and insert it the message post here. You don't have to do anything special like adding commands. If you hit the preview button before submitting the post you won't see your video. Once you Submit the post the video should be embedded.

If you click the Share option on the you Tube site you get a URL that when pasted will not imbed the video but rather pastes as a link. I suspect it is the . in the word 'tube" in the link.

http://youtu.be/vYcYA8d0qls

Pasting the link copied from the address bar - (http://www.you tube.com/watch?v=vYcYA8d0qls) without the brackets, will embed the video:

If you have the time grab a few beers (or whatever) and enjoy. If not skip to 1:09:00 for a few minutes.

Tony is a true virtuoso. There's lots of technically gifted guitar players nowadays but few that have the strong melodic sense that Tony has.

YouTube makes it a lot easier to pick up chops than back in my day of lifting the needle on a record over and over and...

Phil Keagy is a favorite of mine and he only has 9 fingers!

Sanghu Jung from Korea is also great on the guitar. At his age now he'll likely go down as one of the best.

Tommy Emmanuel is VERY good, however, he draws a lot from what Chet and Merle did 40 years ago with some learned jazzy arpeggios to quicken the pace. Not knocking him at all but his forte is in the presentation. He is an entertainer and has mastered that craft as well.

To simply listen to his work without seeing the presentation I would be like ..... nice, but combine it all together and it is an amazing performance.

Sure every guitar player learns from others but you shouldn't dismiss Tommy so quickly he's extraordinary. Even Chet Atkins thinks so.

My bro-in-law was one of the founding members of the old group The Journeymen and seems to concentrate on the banjo. He recently got a handwritten letter from comedian/banjo player Steve Martin telling him how good his latest CD release was. I thought that was pretty cool.

Yeah, I loves me some Joe B. He was in San Diego not too long ago and I kick myself for not seeing him.

Do yourselves a favor and check out Monte Montgomery. Six String Wooden Friend and All on Me are what acoustic guitar is all about.
