Like many other fans of Sir Richard, I am amazed at how good of a guitar player he is. His skill can best be seen by watching one of his live performances. Luckily there are plenty of people who have posted video recordings of Sir Richards live performances on YouTube. Today we’re going to have a look at once of these performances.
Sir Richard Bishop – Space Prophet Dogon live performance
Song that we’re going to listen is called Space Prophet Dogon from the 1990 “Torch of the Mystics” album. It was actually a song that was made during the Sun City Girls days. Some people say that “Torch of the Mystics” is the best album in the rich opus that Sun City Girls have.
Song itself is very hypnotic and has an out of space kind a vibe to it. Notice also the Middle East influence in the mix. However, what we’re looking here today is the guitar mastery of Sir Richard. Looking at him play is almost as memorizing has the song itself. I only recently started to learn how to play the guitar. Work always kept me from starting to learn sooner. Now that I’m close to retiring, hopefully I’ll be able to devote more time to the guitar. I know I’m pretty late, but hey, better late than never.
