I'm in the mood for finding some great local talents on youtube or where ever, to inspire me.

I thought it could be a cool idea if we share local "gems"with each other.
Especially when you're from a remote place, I am interested to hear who is ruling the local circuit with their axe-wielding qualities.

I'll kick off: my personal favorite and (in my humble opinion) Hollands best blues player, Julian Sas.

Let's hear it!!

edit: this is about people who have NOT yet made it. So no use calling out names like dimebag or gary moore. We're looking for unknown talent that roams the local circuits.

I got my sister pregnant once. Yeah, that was awkward, but mostly because she's 6 years younger than me.

The closest to my town that I can think of is Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys.

EDIT: Oh, you mean local, unheard of talent... Yeah, we don't have any of those. My town sucks.

There are two bands from around me that are pretty certain to make it. One played Glasto last year and the other is this year.
The Fayre
Where's Strutter?

For a town of 10000 people we've got a pretty good local music scene.

I don't think they're still together, but the guitarist from Base Defiler was giving me lessons for a while. He was pretty good. I actually shot a couple videos of them practicing and posted them on YouTube but I can't link atm as I'm at work and it's blocked I'll edit later with links unless someone else wants to look them up?

Tony Iommi, The guys from Judas Priest.
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

In my country you should listen to Carlos Paredes, he plays a Portuguese Guitar... it's a tradicional guitar only played and made in Portugal. It has 12 strings and it sounds great.
Carlos Paredes was great at it.
He is dead now.... but look it up on Youtube... you should find something.

Well I don't know any, but everyone keeps talking about how much a guitar god this guy is from my area :

Everyone keeps saying he's The Shit. Well technically maybe he is pretty darn good but when I listened to his solo's I tought wtf is this shit. Just guitar wankery. I don't know mby its just me.

Found another video where I actually like the beggining, but then it again turns into guitar wankery

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB5RFA8t7DM&feature=related

My teacher on the other hand is pretty darn good and when he solo's, well he also wanks the guitar but atleast its ussualy wanking with a meaning, a melody.

I'm from Stockholm so that would be Yngwie Malmsteen. But I don't know if that counts because most people I know don't know him and I don't think he even plays in Sweden at all.

Trigger The Bloodshed. Other that that my town is strangely full of grown up adult people who listen to Justin Bieber

My guitar teacher at my school is probably the best person I know in person, also my school had this professional flamenco player Ben Abrahamson in for a semester to do a play with us, he was spectacular and also in close vicinity.
