WHAT THE HELL

Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

The fabulous flying fingers of Senhor Bonfa

I’m so glad someone thought to preserve these old clips from shows like Perry Como and Mike Douglas. We get to see the great performers and artists who might have otherwise faded from view. Their modern equivalents are almost never seen on television, sad to say.

But, oh, this Bonfa! He’s one of those players who has such beautiful technique that he can make the guitar sound like the ocean, or a breeze, or a bird. His hands are part of the instrument.

Guitarists: Watch and weep. And learn.
