This Acoustic Blues Guitar Video is of Lightning Hopkins. It's a simple blues but it shows how it does not matter whether music is complex or not; what IS important is that the personality of the musician is expressed. If many other players were to play the same notes and chords and would not necessarily be of the same quality because you can't buy or practice the hidden elements of music, it is the inbuilt nature of the musician which really counts.

Both my other guitar blogs now have a whole lot of guitar videos of acoustic guitar players of all styles, players that you may know, like Keith Richards on Acoustic Guitar, or Jimmy Page doing acoustic tunes off the Led Zeppelin 3 album. Plus some of the greats like John McLaughlin, and numerous players that are newer on the scene such as Andy mcKee, Phil Keaggy.
The guitar sites are educational with TAB and notation of Blues Scales, as well as lots of ideas to get your playing going. I've written a few hundred articles and they are designed to help players reach a greater level of musicality.

I've been working lately developing good resources for guitar players wtiting tabs and notation on how to play country blues scales, some alternative blues chords and scales in the key of E and A.
I've also uploaded a few guitar recordings at www.acousticguitarist.wordpress.com and also www.the-guitarplayer.com
If you are interested in improving your playing you will find numerous documents in both open and normal tuning.
The tunings used are standard with a dropped D, DADGAD, CGCGCF
