An acoustic slide guitar being played blues-style with harmonica and an acoustic stomp box for the beat. This appears to be an advertisement for Ellis Guitars, an Australian custom guitar maker. No idea who the players are, Googling the names on the video does *not* turn up any Aussies... but this is some nice jazzy-bluesy riffing anyhow.

Updated: Have now located the players. They're a couple of teenagers from New South Wales (Australia), "Lightning Jack" Ceriani and Michael "Mic" Burley (*NOT* "Mick"). Good job, guys!

  1. Hi B/T, I know you are a Lady Gaga fan, so I thought this article might make you laugh a bit -

    Evidently, Lady Gaga works for the Illuminati - Some comspiracy theories are so weird that you just gotta luv 'em!

  2. Mind control. Really.

    Uhm, I think of a lot of things when I think of Lady Gaga, but "mind" isn't one of them. Sex, mostly. Sex, now, sex is definitely one of the things I think about when I think of Lady Gaga. She makes videos where she humps every object that has any sort of protrusion, for cryin' out loud! But mind control?! Somebody needs to adjust their tin foil beanie, sheesh!
