Unorthodox, yes, but he sure makes me look sick.

Kind of reminds me of Jeff Healy

He died of the cancer that caused his blindness as an infant.

I spent countless hours as a kid trying to learn the Albert Lee solo's from Dave Edmund's Repeat when Necessary.

Sweet Little Lisa was a killer...it only youtube had been around back then...

That was awesome. Dave Edmunds is a fantastic guitar player as well. I am a huge fan of Dave's 1960's band Love Sculpture.

Dave Edmunds? Did he play with anyone else? The name is familiar.

And let's not forget the greatest blind picker of them all, ol' Doc Watson!

Albert's hot! Here he is pickin' up a storm on some R&B, grinnin' from ear to ear with Chet Atkins and James Burton, then, his amp comes unplugged! Classic!

Doc is a musician's musician: he can fingerpick, flatpick, pick a banjo, sing with a beautiful voice, and all with a combination of technical perfection AND musicality that is spectacularly rare. He also basically invented the concept of flatpicking fiddle tunes on the guitar--though he did it on an electric--so you can also call him a pioneer...right up there with Chet.

He's also the kind of player who when you slow down his recording to hear what he's doing, every note is still clean.

Here's a clip of Chet and Doc together:

Totally untouchable!

Doc has ALWAYS had my highest admiration. If I, seeing, could do half of what he does blind, I would not be here at his key board right now.

I just ran across this vintage footage of Chet from 1956 doing Alabama Jubilee. Classic! And you get a great shot of the right hand technique.

Man, I was only one year old!

Great clip!

See, that's what I mean by pioneer: what Chet was doing in 1956 was not only cutting edge; it served as a benchmark for everyone who followed.

Chet was one of those people who literally invented guitar playing as we know it today. Andre (Segovia), Django, Chet, Scotty (Moore), Doc...they are all still worth listening to.

And Daffy, you were only one year old? Heck, I wasn't even a twinkle in my papa's eye. My oldest sister was born in 1957, so that twinkle is named "Sheryl".

Yup! I was all of one year. Now I'm holding my precious granddaughter on my lap as we watch that vintage clip, and I think "She's now where I was then."

And time marches relentlessly on....

He was in a band called Rockpile with Nick Lowe.
