This is a great video of Jerry Donahue showing up close some of his string bending techniques.

Thanks for the link David.
I'm not a guitar player (some say.not even a bass player) but just a joy to watch.....and so modest at the same time.

Watching this, I'm tempted to agree with George: "I'm not a guitar player"!

Jerry Donahue has played with Fotheringay, Sandy Denny, Fairport Convention, and most recently, where I noticed him, the Hellecasters. I love his song "King Arthur's Dream" off their first album. I don't have a copy, or a link; but I do hear it on internet radio (Pandora).

Bill; by that definition, most guitarists aren't guitar players.

Haiwaian and banjo licks all on the same guitar, along with Albert Lee Jerry is a master at that style
