Just looked at the clock, and it’s just after 5 Eastern time! Sorry, I got lost listening to some great guitar players on YouTube. I’ll be featuring guitar players that impress me on the next few months because, yeah! there are some absolutely fantastic players out there!
Alip Ba Ta is a young Indonesian guitarist who does ssome incredible playing. There’s not a lot more that he’s shared about himself, but he does have Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok, and you can hear him on Spotify, Apple Music, and Audius (which is a new one on me). There’s a lot of him on YouTube; here are ten songs.
- Ngopi Pagi (Morning Coffee)
- Bintang Kecil (Little Star)
- Ibu Pertiwi (Motherland)
- Instya Allah (God Willing)
- Cinta Tak Terpisahkan (Inseparable Love)
- Gerimis Mengundang (Drizzle Invites)
- Kangen (Miss)
- Sempurna (Perfect)
- Saat Terakhir (The Last Moment)
Several of these are covers by unfamiliar artists. He also has done a few covers of Queen, Celine Dion, and others.
Check out Alip Ba Ta when you get a chance!
