I’ve already featured The Corrs, Clapton, and Hendrix. I was looking for another version for this week';s Tasty Licks Tuesday feature; however, I found an even better version – better than Hendrix – no way. Way.
I stumbled upon Carlos Vamos’ instrumental treatment. Vamos lives in Amsterdam, but you are likely to see him busking around Europe with his partner in crime – dulcimer player Lindsey Buckland as part of The Famous Unknowns. From looking at his MySpace site, it is obvious that guitar is not his only talent as his portfolio of the mixed media creations.
As far as recordings, Carlos has 17 CDs to his credit. His talent in using both hands to tap the guitar into a world of marvelous sounds makes me want to give away all of my instruments and shave my head as I will never in a million years have the talent he has in one finger within my two hands. I am now definitely a fan.
