Keith Purdue : Applause to this genius who is so good he can inject comedy and make it work with the music. I play the guitar also. And It is also comedy. Not intentionally.

Mumblix Grumph : He's the Victor Borge of guitar.

TheScunion : I had no Idea Jim Stafford was that talented I just knew him from spiders and snakes So cool to see somebody with that much talent who doesn't have their head up their own pompous ass

boyd jobe : If you were country and truly grew up on country, Jim Stafford was a household name. This is called talent, take a good look, because it doesn’t exist anymore. Great musician, clever and flat out funny comedian. Today, a comedians ability is judged on how many times they can say the f-word. These idiots today need a row of cotton to hoe.

Rex McComb : This guy is very good I wish they had more variety shows like the Smothers Brothers Donny and Marie Captain and Tennille those were good shows and I really enjoyed them most of TV shows they got now are crap

ZinaD : That was hilarious when he gave the light guy the finger. lol

Paul Ruff : did I catch a bit of the the flight of the bumble bee in that !? lol this is Awsome

steven hewitt : I decided to check this out for the hell of it, glad I did!

Anthony Skellern : Brilliant and very funny! Like the great Victor Borge proved, you have to be a very good musician before you can take liberties like this !

Raymond Baglari : That was hilarious and awesome at the same time, who digs it ? Give me a high five, Spanish guitar players are like God of all music genre.

Necromancer : How come no one on TV is funny like that anymore?

John Doe : Jim Stafford - Yes Classical Gas - Sort of Branson, MO - NOT EVEN CLOSE.

whitelx50 : He always put on a great show

Marilyn Stevenson : Bloody hell...what an incredible technique Jim Stafford has...and a most gentle touch at the start...!! I particularly liked it when he gave the lighting guy ""The "finger""..Wonderful talent~~

Tina V. : Hilarious and brilliantly thought out, as well as played. WELL DONE, Jim!

Sam Farnsworth : Stafford certainly is an enigma. He could play and sing better than most, but he never became a big touring and recording artist. Damn, he could play and he could really entertain people. His 1971 album is a classic. Such diversity.

6828Lu : This is a blast, and I giggled myself silly and watched it three times. However, I agree the title should be changed. How about: "Jim Stafford on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour"?

Patricia F. : Had no idea Jim Stafford could play classical, Spanish, etc. - so accomplished! This is the same guy who put out 'odd' music like "Spiders and Snakes" and "Virginia"...? What gives? Seems classical players unfortunately not as successful.

David Boyer : At 3:29 he "flips the bird" and gets away with it on live network TV. That was really a big deal back in 1989.

SCLARK2112 : This man is an excellent guitarist!

Clarence Wooten : That was fantastic... I hadn't seen this one, If you're a guitarist.. (I am) you will appreciate this even more. Thanks for the laughs.

IamUncledeuce : Nelson Riddle was the musical director for the Smothers Brothers Show.  FYI.

Regina Shrewsbury : I saw Jim Stafford in concert many years ago. He opened for Charlie Rich. He was so funny and really put on a great show. There are probably many entertainers out there that can play better than you think. It is kind of like Jerry Reed, he had some of the funniest songs, but he was also a fantastic guitar player. I saw him when he opened for one of my all time favorites, Glen Campbell. They played together that night too. Such a shame that Glen Campbell is gone, so much talent and Jerry Reed too. Jim Stafford is still performing.

Vishal Yadav : Talent with a lot of humor

leeoni24 : This guy is awesome

Alex Fh : Playing the guitar one handed is very difficult. I know few people who can manage it. Props for managing to flip the bird in such a way that he could get away with it too!

James Bracken : Some of you people are too critical, its labeled Classical Gas, there isn't enough room to add Flight of the Bumble Bee and whatever else he plays, its a medley and very well done and funny to.

Graham Exton : That poor guitar! Incredible stuff.

mark swyayo : Now that was entertainment.

Muamin Al-Bazaz : This guy cracked me up "kick this guitar 60 yard" lost it XD

MPNNag : Was Great, really enjoyed it,

Gary Brice : I never knew he was a comedian as well. Good suff!

Harold Mackie : who caught the middle finger flip?

Leah Shannon : I LOVE Jim Stafford.........I have for years!!!!! He is SO talented!

Dani Skylark : Cat got your tounge

texascommtech : AMAZING song writer, guitarist, performer and comedian. My favorite song: NONE OF US ARE HERE. Find it, LISTEN to it!

Joey Figueroa : holy sh** I'm speachless

Dani Skylark : Damm that’s a Devil s twang

ROGER2095 : "Guitar" is the Spanish word for "Guitar."

Ray Sagastiano : He really didn't play Classical Gas on the gitbox. He played everything but.

hungfao : This is the type of stuff that helped CBS cancel their show --- when he flips off the lighting guy but they cut it close.

Hubert Vale : It’s a damn shame someone this talented has to clown for the audience to get them to appreciate it! 😟

Miracle Baba : Awesome!!!!

kal Desjarlais : quite the joker

Susan Bidmead : priceless!!amazing player and entertainer...pure magic Mr. Stafford!!!

usmcbrat2 : That was awesome!!!

Raine Carosin : aWESOME!

Jerry Brownell : Jim was once married to Bobbie Gentry ( Ode To Billy Joe ).

phxxr650r : Theres a good reason why he was on everyones show in the 60s and 70s. He was that good.

sisounthone thongthep : guitarist and comedian
