This song has been stuck in my head lately with our recent addition. I found this epic live version the other day.
Oh, I just love that. Must be something Scottish in my ancestry. It really taps into something deep and primeval.
Hope you enjoy these

Very talented guy indeed, with amazing levels of dexterity.
"Shake the Devil by the late great Tommy Bolin, a somewhat unheralded guitarist whose main claim to fame was replacing Richie Blackmore in Deep Purple. Tommy's excesses led to his untimely demise in '76 but he also released a couple of solo albums Teaser, and Private Eyes which includes the track below .
At around the time I was grooving to Tommy Bolin (see my previous post in the Music thread ) and Led Zeppelin were strutting, I also had Fleetwood Mac's 'Mystery to Me' on regular rotation (in more ways than one) on my turntable. This was recorded in the intervening years between Peter Green and Buckingham/Nicks.
Other than the founding members John McVie and Mick Fleetwood, it featured Christine McVie and former members Bob Welch (yes, of 'Ebony Eyes' fame) and Bob Weston, a brilliant guitarist whose work you can hear throughout this pretty track.
Just stumbled across this from Nick Cave and Blixa, pretty dark, not sure about the video, love the song.
I'm a bit of a Cave fan.
love nick cave...most of his stuff is fairly dark
If you enjoy well played string instruments have a look at this guy.

Memories indeed. I saw them not to long after that was recorded from about 6m off the stage at an outdoor concert where they co-headlined with The Doobie Brothers. Homeowners a km away were calling in noise complaints. One of the best concerts ever!!!

Is Juan Diego Florez the world's greatest living (opera) tenor? I think probably yes.
Here is Florez giving his all to "Granada"
