Renato @ Florida; I bought and started learning to play guitar about two years ago, a bit late in life (I am 39). Still a beginner, but motivated and inspired by Fil and other 'bedroom rockers'. I've been posting a few videos here and sound bites on soundcloud, as sort of a logbook with snippets of how my playing (hopefully) evolves, and it may help inspire others who love music to take an instrument, practice, play, and have fun. To contact me by email, my gmail.com username is the same as my username here.

    Ok, this is not me (I wish..) but in the spirit of posting performances we like here. EJ Phillips is a musician I first saw live in New Orleans 10 years ago, and he blew my mind – picture you walk on the street and hear this amazing guitar player in a tiny bar off Bourbon Street – this guy plays Hendrix like Fil plays Angus. 10 years later I am now in town again. I was not expecting to, but tonight once again heard him play walking down Bourbon St, went in and had a great time – what an awesome surprise, he’s still playing here. Will come back tomorrow for one more. If you are as lucky as I am and get a chance to visit New Orleans, he’s playing at the Sing Sing now. Thought I’d share this with all.

      Very nice vid, great bar ambience. This reminds me so much of the “Louisiana Blues pub” here in vienna. Very tiny pub, as big like like a bigger living room.
      Every wednesday or so they have a “Blues session” where random musicians show up and do jam sessions. Very great ambience there. Sometimes even in the middle of a jam session, other musicians come in and join the jam session. Right in front of you, while youre sitting at the bar.
      If one you you come ever to vienna, we have to go there 🙂
      Hmm, lets see if I’ll find something on youtube.

        Yeah; well, this is not recorded in the bar I was in but it’s the same vibe. This guy was 3 meters away from me, and stopped by for a shake of hand and a few words after the set. I hope to visit Vienna one day, thanks for the pointer!
