Woodstock Guitar Creation Gods Psychedelic Sanctuary
In August 1969, the Woodstock Music and Art Fair was at Max Yasgur's Farm in White Lake, NY. The event was entitled "Aquarium Exhibition – Peace and Music Three Days".
The first day of the festival was devoted to peoples. Richie Havens opened with the invitation of "Freedom", showing the propulsive sound. Ravi Shankar brought the audience into a meditative, trance-like state with the emergence of Sitar virtuosity.
The second day was filled by the Superstars of the Psychedelic Rock. Santana's offer, "Soul Sacrifice", was sponsored by Mike Shrieve's tribal drummer. The mountain "South Train Train", linked by Leslie West, with a fat, fat guitar sound.
Creedence Clearwater Revival released an Artificial Rock Classic born in Bayou, John Fogerty, a tasteful player who wrote memorable riffs and made melodic guitars, who hardly knew. Pete Townshend and The Who started playing the "Tommy" Rock Opera House and finally destroyed under the "My Generation" anthem.
The third day was stalled. The show continued with the flash of British lighting, Alvin Lee, who declared in ten years that he was "going home" with a helicopter. Johnny Winter filmed JB Lenoir "Mama, talk to her daughter" in a Texas tornado.
Crosby, Stills & Nash coordinated by Judy Collins's "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" as Stephen Stills painted an eastern back for a modal tuning. Paul Butterfield led the ship on the sea with "Drifting Blues", his first companion, Michael Bloomfield, who had a blistering six-string.
The closing of the festival with the Revolutionary Instrumental version of the "Starfired Banner", Jimi Hendrix transformed the national anthem from a war celebration to celebrate peace.
Woodstock was the exclusion point that indicated the end of the sixties. Despite the Vietnam War, the world's greatest guitarists fled to half a million hippies who sought shelter from the storm.
