@Measurement Blues: "Four chords (Dm, G, C, Am) with three notes in between. Of course,he's doing all kinds of things like bending a bit and then there's the "percussion" on the chord strumming."

Yes, when you put it in full screen and they do a close-up you can see how he forms his bar chords.  A very will done performance and video.

I wonder if playing barefoot helps?  Probably wouldn't help me, but it might keep the the critics away.  ;- )

I got hooked on the part that starts about 0:38 into the video. Four chords (Dm, G, C, Am) with three notes in between. Of course,he's doing all kinds of things like bending a bit and then there's the "percussion" on the chord strumming.

@MeasurementBlues: "I'll never come close to how it's played here, but I can make something of it that's my own using a few pieces of it."

Oooh! Spanish/Flemenco!  All guitar music strikes a responsive chord in me.  ;- )

I have a CD by Rita Honti ("Virtuoso Guitar" 1994) from many years ago, a mix of various Classical / Baroque / Spanish numbers. 

I know how to play a guitar.  Doesn't mean I play it well ...  :- (

@stargzer, here's my next project. I'll never come close to how it's played here, but I can make something of it that's my own using a few pieces of it.

There's not much on them that you can't hear on classic rock radio

Aah, but thre's plenty struff you don't want to hear and certainly it is subject to the whims of the station. See my comment (the first comment) on Max's The Principal Edwards Magic Theatre Meets Led Zeppelin

@MeasurementBlues,

I wish you hadn't started me on YouTube!  I found "Mass in F Minor" by the Electric Prunes, so I'm getting my Psychadelic Rock and Ecclesiastical Latin fix.  My cubemates will never be the same ...

@MeasurementBlues: "There's not much on them that you can't hear on classic rock radio or YouTube."

Ah, but to get the entire album "The Peaceful Side" by Billy Strayhorn I'll have to record it myself.  YouTube only has one cut from that album, "Chelsea Bridge," and a cut of "Take The A Train" from a different album.  "The Peaceful Side" is a good album to listen to by a roaring fire on cold night with a bottle of Tawny Port. 

On the other hand, YouTube does have most all of Quicksilver Messenger Service and Iron Butterfly, but only one cut, "Cod'ine," from Charles Browning's 'Choirboy's Lament.'  I have some other vinyl that doesn't seem to be on YouTube, or at least, incomplete (e. g., Pozo Seco - 'Shades of Time').

@stargzer, That's one way to go, I just don't feel the need to digitize my vinyl records. There's not much on them that you can't hear on classic rock radio or YouTube.

@MeasurementBLues:  "I thought about buying one of those turntables to digitize my vinyl recordings, then realized that the unit would outlive its usefulness ..."

If you still have an analog turntable and a sound card with line level inputs you can get a preamp to boost the turntable to line level.  The inputs on a laptop are usually microphone inputs and the signal will be too low without a pream and (I think) too high with one.  You can get a preamp with a USB output (see below).

My wife went out and bought one of those turntables with a USB output but it didn't record very well, and the analog outputs were too low (or maybe too high--can't remember what the problem was other than terrible distortion) when I used an RCA-to-1/8" stereo adapter cord, so I ran the turntable through the preamp I bought and adjusted the input and output gain to get a decent signal.  I paid $80 for the ART USB Phono Plus at Guitar Center.  I'm holding on to my original turntable, a Tecnics Direc Drive with a magnetic cartridge.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
