B List: Just The Guitarists And Only The Guitarists

For this week’s B List we found ten videos on YouTube featuring just the guitar players from some of our favorite bands without any accompaniment. When we sat down to put this together, we thought it would be easier to find clips of just the axe-slingers in action without anyone else but it didn’t work out that way. Thankfully, after a few hours of digging, we did find ten gems worth sharing.

1. Al Schnier and Chuck Garvey of moe. – Summer Camp Guitar Clinic

The dual lead guitar players for moe., Chuck Garvey and Al Schnier, jammed out by their lonesomes on May 27, 2011 at the Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, Illinois as part of a Guitar Clinic. Over the past 20 years these guys know each other’s style like the back of their hands and you can see that connection in this clip.

2. Jim James and Carl Broemel of My Morning Jacket – Sec Walkin’

Jim James and Carl Broemel of My Morning Jacket teamed up for an incredibly rare duo performance in Amsterdam back in 2008, where their set was captured for local television. The pair included this gorgeous rendition of Sec Walkin’ from Evil Urges in their set.

3. Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes of the Allman Brothers Band – Old Friend

It’s hard to believe Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes are entering their 11th year together as the two Allman Brothers Band guitarists after a few years of instability following Warren’s initial departure from the legendary band in 1997. Warren and Derek recorded this version of Old Friend from the ABB’s 2003 release Hittin’ The Note backstage at the Beacon Theatre in the mid ’00s.

4. Jake Cinninger and Brendan Bayliss of Umphrey’s McGee – Great American > Susannah > Great American

Every December the dual lead guitarists in Umphrey’s McGee join us for a holiday-themed benefit concert. Recordings of these special shows are never made public and taping is prohibited, but that hasn’t stopped a few clips from appearing on YouTube such as this one featuring the 30db staple Susannah smack dab in the middle of the UM instrumental Great American.

Trey is by far the best of our generation whether you like phish or not you cant be blind to his Jedi skills but hey whenever there is money to be made Phish is on everyones wish list. Cracker???
