"original" guitar hero? lol wut?
 
2012-08-17 10:55:27 PM
I'll vote in favor of the hero tag for that performance. Maybe not original hero, but that was great. Thanks, subby

El Maestro dela guitarra. No es el heroe original, pero es un heroe dela guitarra.

Mil gracias.

Yeah. Original doesn't work in that sentence.

I do believe the boy child dressed in blue is quite capable of doing what he so intended. Obscure? Yes. Stolen many times? Yes.

I hated how easy he made his incredible talent look

/because I had no talent at all
//well maybe not no talent, but not much
///and he had to act to make it look challenging
////freakin amazing

You guys realize he's not dead, right? He's not even that old, really. In fact, you can still go see him.

2012-08-19 12:09:05 PM
I like how no one in the audience yelled out "Whoooo!" during his performance or some other annoying thing that audiences do today.
 
2012-08-19 12:16:37 PM
that is so farking awesome.

I love Roy Clark but I'm pretty sure the title of "original" guitar hero belongs to either Django Reinhart or Robert Johnson.

Showing off on Hee-Haw, he would always toss in a bad last note as if "It's OK, even I make a mistake once in a while"
Except he'd toss it in at the end, last note, so well rehearsed and masterfully executed a bad note as if to say, "Yeah, that's no 'accidental' I played there"

Glad it hit green.

A case can be made for Les Paul as well. I have tons of respect for Mr. Clark also.

I couldn't understand Oscar. WHat song did he request at the start? It sounded like Mountain Dew.

He was always the best part of Hee Haw for me.

Dude could rock, too.

boring.it is fast, technically correct and so on. so is grandma's knitting. i don't excited over mittens either. guitars are the hemorrhoids of musical instruments. the faster you finger it the better you feel but i'm left smelling stink from your fingers.

If serious, let me know when you get the stick out of your ass, so I can plant a boot in it.

With some practice, that guy could probably get to be pretty good.
 
2012-08-19 02:49:28 PM
I remember Roy Clark when he was in his prime. Quite a player. And a really genuine and generous guy, at that.

He also plays Mozar, until he turns it into Memphis.

THanks to all who identified this as the Lecuona "Malaguena"--I wish the YouTube video would have identified it, too.

Here's Roy Clark doing it a couple years earlier (1969) on an amplified, arch top, jazz-box kind of instrument (with bonus psychedelic video goodness):

/Roy Clark = very talented musician who could change right over from flat picking guitar to fingerpicking 5-string banjo--and an engaging personality as well.

Ah yes, yesterday when he was young.

If you're going to play Malaguena on a guitar, play it right.

Just going to leave this here: Sabicas

I always liked Roy Clark, but my knowledge of him is from watching shiatloads of "Hee Haw" when I was a kid.

I had no idea he could play guitar like this.

Agree with a couple of others. Technically correct but way too fast.

Little known factoid. Two Tulsa, Oklahoma talents in that clip. Tony Randall was born and graduated from High School in Tulsa and Roy Clark has made his home in Tulsa since the late 70's.

HOW HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF HIM UNTIL NOW?

THAT WAS AWESOME!!!

./harmonics and slappin in 71??

As a semi-competent hack guitarist I say hot damn! I am humbled.
