I've never been much of a fan of Willie's singing, but I was given a couple of tickets to see him perform a short while back, so my wife and I went to the concert. I was impressed. Not so much by his singing, but by his skill as a guitarist. I guess I was expecting him to strum some C, G, and D chords and have someone else do most of the guitar work. That old guy (he must be about 112) can play. That worn out, or well broken in, Martin guitar sounds great. The concert was about an hour and a half and he went through it without a break. I came away with more respect for him as a performer than I might previously had.
