If you are a true guitarist and you have never seen this clip, you must!  

This is from The Johnny Cash Show from 1970 and features Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton and Carl Perkins performing the song "Matchbox" and it is great! 

The pre-song banter between Cash and Clapton is fantastic, as Johnny pays homage to the English (he had just toured there) and to Eric Clapton. 

Clapton likewise pays homage to Cash and confesses how much he was influenced by American Blues, Country and early Rock and Roll...and Carl Perkins, who then joins them onstage and gets down!  

Awesome stuff!
