    Question Who can help me find the name of this blues guitar player?

    Hi guys,

    I'm looking to find the name of the guitar player I saw in some YouTube clips a while back and can't find anymore.
    All I can do is describe what I remember.

    It was black and white video footage, I think from the 60's. The guitar player was playing another guitarist's guitar, whose name was on the guitar. (on the body, not the neck)
    I can't remember either of their names, or the names of the songs, but if I remember correctly, there was one rather fast instrumental and one where the guy also sang.
    He was a great guitar player, and I think he played without a pick. Does this description ring a bell? Anyone? Thanks for your time!

    Peace

    Magic Sam is slipping through the cracks of peoples' consciousness.
    He was one of the greats.
    Go deep.
    That boogie he plays on Earl's guitar is epic.
    AND....don't forget Earl Hooker!!
    Start with The Hucklebuck.

    Thanks for that prompt, CC. Magic Sam's one of the greatest Bluesmen...among the lesser-appreciated Otis Rush, Earl Hooker, etc.
