Ronnie Be Good

Ronnie is a street musician from Botswana and trust me, you want to watch this little video. Four strings, open tunings and completely unorthodox fingering: if that's not rock 'n roll, what is?

Note to self: next time the urge to buy more guitar gear pops in your head, remember it's *not* the instrument.

Shades of Jordan, Jeff Healey, delta blues, so many things....(the dude behind Ronnie looks like your typical rock band manager...totally unmoved by the music :))

re: the dude in the back, when i saw the video, the topmost comment was that this was probably the 25th time he was hearing this tune that day :-D
