Twanging Tuesday # 99

Ry Cooder is one of the only guitar players that is able to play most of the styles of the last decades. Most of his songs are based on traditional Rhythm and Blues but I like his versions of classics long gone by. Sadly I've never seen him live on stage but I love to hear his songs from time to time. Get Rhythm is a song played by a lot of musicians during the last 40 years and I think this version is one of the best ever made. So enjoy this kind of chicken skin music.

Good but not as good as Johnny Cash!

I've only seen Ry Cooder once in 1992, when he was playing in Little Village with John Hiatt and Nick Lowe, but I clearly remember seeing him perform 'a stunning 'Vigliante Man' on the Old Grey Whistle Test many years earlier.
