One of the all time great guitarist/singer/songwriters is gone. Lung cancer claimed Bert Jansch yesterday. I wish I could say he was an early influence of mine - in many ways he was - but I could never, and still can't, play guitar like Bert. I'm happy to say I met him years and years ago. He was a lovely, generous man.
If you don't have at least some Bert in your collection, get his first album simply titled Bert Jansch, from which this tune, Angie, is taken. It was written by another great player named Davy Graham. We all twisted our fingers for months trying to play this. Thanks Bert.
