FutureStarrRick Beato: Top 20 Acoustic Guitar Intros of All Time
Rick Beato has compiled a listing of his Top 20 guitar Introductions of all-time. Beato also counts guitar introductions from everywhere the globe.
Besides of these great songs, the thing that impressed me the foremost was this guy’s ability to play of these songs off the highest off his head. I don’t know much about playing the guitar (I tried to show myself some years ago, and failed miserably), but this looks as if quite the feat.
So just who is Rick Beato? Here’s some info from his web site:
Rick Beato may be a musician, teacher, and father of three. Rick has worked as a writer/producer with various bands within the rock and country genres. Two albums that he produced for NeedtoBreathe – “The Outsiders” (2009) and “The Reckoning” (2012) – won Dove Awards within the Best Rock/Contemporary category. He co-wrote “Carolina” with Parmalee in 2013, which climbed to number one on the Billboard’s folk Chart. he's certified to show grades K-12 and holds a bachelor’s in music from Ithaca College and a master’s in jazz studies from the geographical region Conservatory of Music.
In other words, he’s got some credibility. Rik has near 1 million subscribers to his YouTube channel, and this video has over 2 million views.
Now on to the songs themselves.
First, I’m not really sure what he's trying to urge at when he talks about having a hook/signature and why Landslide wouldn't be considered a melodic hook. Anyway…
Here are some general comments on the video and therefore the musical selections:
I guess of the songs Rick has chosen, I probably would put Here Comes the Sun as my top choice, with Roundabout, and Over the Hills and much Away rounding out the highest three.
As to songs i'd have included on the list that aren’t on Rick’s list (many of those were triggered by reading through many of the 11,000 comments that the video has generated):
I’m amazed what percentage of those songs seem to be from the 70s, which is that the musical era I most closely come with. undecided if that was the heyday of great music normally, or simply for acoustic guitars specifically.
Anyway, it had been a fun video to observe, and united person commented, “Anybody else out there that would have sat through Rick’s, “TOP 1,000 guitar INTROS OF ALL TIME” Ha! What a treat this was!!”
