He's a solo guitar performance of Clair de Lune that will blow your mind.

I don't what's more impressive, her right hand or her left.

ps - One of the most beautiful songs ever written,

Wow! She has serious skill.

Equally refreshing is hearing and seeing a woman play guitar who's not showing cleavage, thighs, or bimbo makeup.

She is going 100% on guitar skill.

Bravo!

Is this where you end up if you start playing Rockabilly ?

:)

BTW She has a similisr way of holding the guitar as Bill Wyman used to hold his bass.

Thanks for posting it.

Exactly!

She is a monster on guitar. I am going to have nightmares about this. That's an interesting arrangement with how the voicings have been treated. Very nice, but good God. This is a piece that was certainly never meant to see a guitar in it's full unaccompanied form. A huge undertaking.

Another great Debussy piece played on guitar is "La fille aux cheveux de lin" by the late great Johnny Smith.

Some of those chord shapes with the super long hand/finger stretches would require practice just to not injure yourself, never mind playing the song itself.

I found this video while watching Django clips (he has a song called Clair de Lune, but it's a different song).

Django was a nut. And he did all that stuff with only two fingers on his fretting hand.

Peegoo - Django is still the best guitar soloist, at least in jazz, that I've ever heard. How he did this with only two fully function fingers on his fretting had is mind boggling.

And he was the epitome of ‘cool’ too.

For those that don’t know, Django’s ring and little fingers on his left hand were permanently fused in a curled position as a result of injuries he incurred in a fire when he was a boy. You can be a world-class guitar player with only two fingers, and you can play for the Seattle Seahawks with only one hand.

Anything is possible if you want it badly enough!

Django and Albert

I saw a YouTube sound clip of Django playing electric with Duke Ellington's band. Wow, I'd not heard him on electric guitar before!
