. . . aaaaahh!!! now from where did this one creep up after so long?! up until now i've only seen stills from the clip. remains one question: where are the first few minutes of it? anyway - thanks so much for pointing out!

An amazing find, dansven! The only video of the band playing "Oh Well" Part 2 - or miming to it anyway. In the clip, Danny mimed playing the acoustic since Peter mimed playing the recorder. As most of us know, on the actual studio recording, Peter played all the instruments for "Oh Well" Part 2 other than the recorder (played by his girlfriend Sandra Elsdon) and piano (played by Jeremy Spencer).

It would indeed be nice to find the beginning of this performance, and also to see how it ended - I have to assume they didn't go all the way through Part 2 on TV. It does give us some hope that more "new" clips may still show up!

Maybe someone know more about D.Kirwan's acoustic guitar?

i'm not too sure if this was danny's acoustic or peter's . . . ?!
:shrug:
if it was peter's, it might have been a spanish ramirez flamenco model (see martin celmins in his bio on greeny).

Thanks for the information about Peter's guitar :)

But for the one Danny plays, the iscription inside the guitar looks like "Ibanez" Script Logo. This one:



No?

again, i'm not too sure about this one, too - but you might well be right. i don't know if there's a somewhat complete listing of the guitars danny played floating around somewhere. i only know about the most obvious electric axes, which certainly doesn't help at all here.

Thanks Lazy :)

I am, as everybody can understand, a fan of P.G. music, and also a fan of Ibanez Vintage Era. I grew up with this music.

So, if there is any Ibanez involved in "Oh Well", it's a discovery for me ...

there's NO ibanez involved in the RECORDING of "oh well", that's for sure! peter played a wooden-bodied michigan resonator for the acoustic parts in the first half and he played the classical guitar parts in the second half on his ramirez flamenco model. and - as already mentioned - danny hadn't played at all on part 2 of the song (see above).
by the way - there's an older thread here on the ledge on danny's guitars (http://ledge.fleetwoodmac.net/showthread.php?t=45963) . . . but no word about any acoustic ones.

So no Ibanez in the recording ... Thanks for the link for Danny guitars :)

Anyway, i know P.G. likes at least one of Ibanez vintage guitars.

He has in his possession Ibanez Artist 2663SL, which is similar to 2663TC (the one Steve Miller used for "Fly like an Eagle") The guitar has a triple single coil pickup. Peter's guitar has the same kind of pickup but a "slider" one ... Rare birds these guitars.

Interesting clip! I've tried to break down all the instruments and parts on Oh Well; it's a challenge because it isn't available in a true stereo mix (although I think I remember some sort of stereo reverb on the 2 mix). In the first part I think the rid is played on the resonator, Kirwan's electric, and possibly Green's Fender 6 (which features in Part 2 as well). There are some buried overdriven power chords in Part 2 that could be Kirwan on electric.

Yeah I forgot I've read that before. It reminded me of Kirwan's crunchy guitar during the outro of Future Games.

Yes, nice find (thanks dansven).
When I watched the clip, I got the idea that Danny plays the correct chords or notes. Any thoughts on that or anyone that has tried to play this part?
