This blues is the best blues played on acoustic guitar I have ever heard.
And Laurence Juber is one of the most sensible guitarists on the planet. And he was the lead guitarist for Paul McCartney’s Wings! And he is two-times Grammy Award winner! And Martin Guitars produces a signature OM28LJ guitar (if I remember correctly, two generations of guitars) named after him.
His Blues de Luxe is a very syrupy major blues. On video, it looks simple but it sounds very powerful and complex. Every time when I hear it I am looking around trying to pickup my guitar and play with him – it’s so engaging. The combination of acoustic guitar with upright bass … it’s amazing!!!!!
And … how about this:
Juber’s Pink Panther is the best ever Pink Panter on a guitar
I didn’t know that guitar can sound like that until I listened to this performance:
