I went to see Dick Dale last nghtand was totally blown a way!

At the age of 73 Dick puts most of the young guitarists to shame. He played non stop for 90 minutes and wow can he play!!

I was no more than 2metres away from him and his technique is truely unique and original. He is left handed and plays with the strings upside down!

If you get the chance make sure you go and see him you wont regret it.

Tonight I am off to see something completely different a flamenco guitarist called Manolo Sanlucar.

He's a master in what he does. I think that there's no one like him on his style. An unique musician

He's style is so unique and he is truly a master at it! You are lucky you got the chance to hear him live, I doubt he'll ever come here...
