Ry Cooder has been a favourite guitarist of mine for many years – since I was a teenager, actually. He rarely comes to Australia – the last time he did, I was in Paris. Damn,
But he can play just about anything with strings. and he likes to do exotic collaborations like this one
and there are other older ones with Mohan Bhatt – A Meeting by the River with the fabulous Ganges Delta Blues
and Gabby Pahinui – sadly now deceased Hawaiian slack key guitar master.
And Flaco Jiminez Mariachi Band (a really old clip)
And the Amazing Delta Bluesman Taj Mahal ( I’ve heard him twice down in the old Basement)
And the Rolling Stones from the cult movie “Performance” (in the 1960s for Pete’s sake) – Ry wrote the song and played slide here.
That’ll be enough for now 🙂
Take your time and enjoy a guitar virtuoso.
