The video above is more than worth the two minutes of your life to turn off the TV and listen and watch. Lindsey Buckingham is phenomenal in his performance of "Big Love". I've heard some people sing that should honestly just sing louder, pouring out their heart and soul, but they are nervous or afraid and so they restrain the beauty and energy that lies within. Sometimes you need to just open your mouth and let your gut force out the incredible sounds you are capable of making. Lindsey's energy here is palpable; he sings and picks that guitar with a gusto to which few people pay much attention.
As I fill these posts I am quickly understanding the challenges in writing about bourbon. Reading about alcohol, or any sort of food or beverage for that matter, is boring to most and there are definitely a finite number of brands and distilleries. That won't stop me from figuring out the interesting conversations, the things that pique your interest about bourbon and your after-work joys and vices, but when I hear different styles of music my eyes are opened to a literally infinite supply of guitarists. And that's not to mean that good guitarists and musicians are a dime a dozen; on the contrary, they are hard to find, but each one is unique and talented. I'm not really a fan or follower of Fleetwood Mac, but here I am, enthralled in watching Lindsey's fingers and hearing the music they make. Let this open your eyes and ears to the magic of music. So sit back, and if you have some fancy TV where you can make your internets appear on a big screen and the sound come through loud expensive speakers, do that. If not, hit the mute button and watch your computer for a few minutes.
