"I come to praise Dylan, not to bury him..."

Join guitarist Jay Stapley for a fascinating session as he discusses and shows examples of both Dylan's acoustic and electric guitar playing.

"While I acknowledge his significant contribution to the vocabulary of the acoustic guitar as an accompanying instrument, as soon as he picks up an electric guitar, we part company. And no; I don't think his 'going electric' was any kind of betrayal: my problems with his electric playing lie elsewhere.

The electric guitar is a completely different instrument to its acoustic cousin and requires different physical techniques and musical approaches."
