    What soulful playing! Another understatement is that Peter Green "went through some things".

    A true legend. His life was at times so fraught, and he never got the recognition he deserved to the general public, but the PLAYERS... they always knew he was one of the absolute greatest.

    Rest in Peace.

    That is as close to 'perfect' tone as I've ever heard.

    RIP, sir.

    I’ve always enjoyed Bernie Marsden’s stories about Peter at Experience.

    A nice tribute article to Peter Green in Premier Guitar:

    "Green’s catalog of ’66 to ’70 remains a necessary touchstone for any guitarist seriously interested in exploring foundational British blues—or, simply, blues. Examined chronologically, it illustrates his evolution from hard-core traditionalist to a composer capable of both deep introspection (“Man of the World”) and psychedelic experimentalism (“The Green Manalishi”)."

    I'm sorry. I should have given more than 30 minutes notice. I got the email about this earlier but didn't think to share until now.

    Jeff McErlain's weekly "Brooklyn Lockdown" YouTube lesson today is titled "Peter Green - Playing the Changes Pt 1". The Part 1 perhaps indicates there will be another part next week which you can catch live. For now you should be able to catch Part 1 on the replay.

    Beyond a nice tribute I suspect it will be educational.
