    Yes, a good video..

    I was brought up on Peter Green, and his playing technique is one I've always tried to encompass in my own playing. The man was a genius in my opinion. So soulful. You could listen to a hundred guitars and know instantly when Peter was playing.. A tragedy when he succumbed to an LSD hit in Germany that more or less destroyed him..

    I've never really heard this guy except around here. I need to look into him more. What Fleetwood albums did he play on?

    When a producer from DECCA records visited John Mayall in the studio, he was alarmed, "Wait, where is Eric Claption????"

    John replied, "Don't worry we got someone better."

    So true.

    Fleet wood Mac
    Mr. Wonderfull
    English Rose

    Dave Simpson on YouTube does some great videos on Peter Green.

    Albatross and Green’s playing had a big influence on David Gilmour. You can find videos of him covering it. A lot of the popular guitar heroes will point to him but he’s not someone who’s very well known to the general public. Partly due to his mental health cutting his career short in his prime. But the echoes of his playing can be heard in the likes of Jimmy Page, Carlos Santana and many more. :thumb:

    I believe the original name of the band was “Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac”

    He influenced Gary Moore also. Moore put out an album called Blues for Greeny
