guitar guy

Guitar Guy, 17 x 14, watercolor and ink on paper
I used to play keys in a band. Sometimes I shared the lead with the guitar man. Eight bars to him. Eight bars to me. Eight bars back to him, more if he was really into the groove and it was right. I knew. He knew.

Speaking of guitar, one of my all time favorite guitar men, Carlos Santana. You're never wrong when you pick him as your favorite guy.

Love the intensity of your guitar guy. Also. the intensity of the video. Carlos in his element. He did always love his wimmins.

You know, I got the idea to include videos with my posts from your blog! Love your comments!

Thanks, Sam! Intense is the right word for the guitar guys in this post. Sometimes, when things were really right, the guitarist I knew would close his eyes and instantly the sound became everything. Truly great days.
