FNM Unplugged - professional or amateur

By maxwell edison ·
Solo acoustical guitar, unplugged, any genre, professional musician or amateur, poplar or unknown. Could include a second, or possibly a third instrument, as long as it's unplugged and has that unplugged sound. A second guitar and a stand-up bass, for example, might work. And to make it even more interesting, there's actually no limit as to the number of people playing, as long as they're all unplugged and have that unplugged sound.

But if it doesn't have that unplugged sound, it will be a potential target for BOOS. If the music really sucks - someone posts a terrible amateur, for example - BOOS might be appropriate. If you post an artist who's already been listed - BOO.

Each sub-thread will have to be a comment on the original post and/or another unplugged song from the same artist. Someone might post their favorite Eric Clapton unplugged, for example, and someone else posts another Clapton unplugged as a reply. Any and all comments are appropriate.

For my starting selections, I've chosen a truly international field of very talented players, both professionals and amateurs. American, British, Australian, and German players are included in my initial selections.

John Prine - That's the Way the world Goes 'Round

by maxwell edison In reply to FNM Unplugged - professio ...

John Prine unplugged at the kitchen table. His music with a bit of humor. This is a classic clip.

John Prine will be at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado (just west of Denver) - the greatest outdoor venue in the world - on June 13th. It's sure to be a great show. Come by where I'm parked, and I'll grill you a steak and offer you adult beverages. (Advanced notice required, of course, and you're on your own for the ticket.)

Eva Cassidy - Autumn Leaves

Eva Cassidy - Autumn Leaves

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7-haKkFnT8

I ran across this clip of Eva Cassidy quite some time ago, and it was the first time I ever heard her (or heard of her). After listening to other related clips of her singing, I thought, wow! I'd love to see her perform live. I wonder if she ever tours and will be coming to Colorado? Upon doing my research, I was actually saddened to learn that she died at the young age of 33. I can't help but think she was on the threshold of something very special.

(There are a couple of other unplugged clips of her on YouTube.)
