Below is a video of acoustic guitarist Monte Montgomery playing Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Tightrope”. The performance is from the 1999 Oyster Bake Festival. This is an interesting cover of one of my favorite SRV tunes:
UPDATE: Monte’s cover of “Tightrope” has been removed. Instead, check out Monte playing Henrix’s “Little Wing”:
Monte is great. I wish he would tour outside of Texas more thought. He is one of those little known great performers.
Monte tours outside of Texas a lot. You can find his tour schedule at http://www.montemontgomery.net.
Monte actually toured through Nashville last year. Stupidly, I didn’t go, but will definitely catch him next time through town.
I guess by “outside Texas” I meant “inside Florida” lol. I had a friend who lived in Austin who got to see him quite a few times and turned me on to him. If you haven’t yet checked out his little wing cover, give it a go.

This video is no longer working.
Thanks for letting me know, Zac. I’ve replaced the “Tightrope” video with a cover of “Little Wing”.
