There are many that fit the bill. Some are vey simple, some are complex and floor ya, either can be great. On the level of flooring you, there’s tommy Emanuel’s version of somewhere over the rainbow. The intro is different, and beyond my grasp, unless all i did for the next 4o0 years was figure it out and try to play it. It’s probably worth listening and watching the whole video.
One of the first guitar parts i tried to learn note for note. It’s simple, but i liked it.
California Dreaming - Mamas & The Papas (Wrecking Crew)
It was in there. Only one he didn't play, and he said only one he'd met the Artist. Used concert footage of Nancy Wilson playing it.
Thanks for the summary.
Nice, included AIC.
Jim, I think it was required of you to include this one, just because blue was in the band's name.
Having played that card, though, I could listen to that song for hours. So many good songs came out of that band.
That's the one I thought of too.
My favorite acoustic intro would be "I Don't Want to Spoil the Party" by The Beatles. But probably doesn't belong on the list, being a not-particularly-iconic album cut, and there's a simultaneous electric part. But it's one of the things I always have to play when I pick up an acoustic for noodling.
Lots of great Dead tunes work!
One of the best versions of "Rainbow" is by the late Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwo'ole. Of course, it's done on a uke. You'd have to include Jake Shimabukuro as well. His take on "My Guitar Gently Weeps" is amazing.
Young's got a lot of tunes that fit.
Earle's a mando player, and has some great tunes---"Galway Girl" is a good one.
I viewed this vid a couple of days ago and thought the very same thing. At least an honorable mention would have been good. For the most part it is a really good list and Rick did an excellent job playing all the intros.
I thought the very same thing.
You are right of course!
Going to see Justin Heyward next month.
Rush is the ultimate music machine.
Why not? I would agree.
Beato's a cool dude. I watch a lot of his vids.
I loved this addition to the beginning of the song.
From the Stones, I prefer the Love in Vain intro (and it's very different from Robert Johnson, then you can actually credit it to the Stones) to Angie.
But for sure, Angie is more iconic.
