    This dude is incred. So funny, I was just thinking about him when we were discussing Mayer in the other thread (I'm not a big JM fan, I was gonna actually mention DURATE and say "now there's a great blues guitarist IMO").

    There are so many players out there now all basically doing or trying to do the same thing.
    The only guitarist who really caught my attention was /is Michael Schenker. Not because of how many notes he can squeeze into a bar or whammy bar slams but rather because of his melodic compositions. He possess a musical gift that not many do.
    Not that I am even familiar with his albums /songs/ bands/history however what I have heard he is a " Guitarist that gives me a rush to watch! "

    Would love to see Chris playing with Lance Lopez, Philip Sauce and Eric Gales. How epic would that be?

    And then some can't stop speaking. Are they hiper? Do they talk too much? Or do they go off? Like it or not.

    MS is my fav. So good so tasty.

    However...when I watch a player loose himself to his love? Fux sakes...it doesn't have to be MS.

    This mother fucker can play. Yah...we hear blues phrases that sound familiar...then we here and see other versions. Not a clone. Too many notes? I didn't get bored at all and I heard/saw blues like many share. None perform but a few like this. Sometimes a player needs some room to get going. I dig these players. Perfection or elitist listener's will scratch and dig otherwise.

    Unfortunately I couldn't find Killing Floor, which is the opener, on his first gig in the US, where nobody really knew what The Experience was up to in England. Pretty large moment, idiotically blistering performance.

    Oh, geez... another 'key of Z minus' bluesman. A cobbled together mess of pointless noodling. His intonation is some of the worst I've ever heard. His vocal skills are nonexistent. A celebration of mediocrity.

    I saw Paul Gilbert at the Iridium last night. That damn bartender's 15 dollar gin and tonics gave me a hangover!

    IMG_3558.JPG Talk about being over-gunned- TWO Marshalls at probably the lowest volume show I've ever seen. You could totally talk over the band, not have to yell at the bartender.

    As far as the show, I almost bailed, because I'm never into super shredders that aren't great writers, but his enthusiasm, stoked-ness about the guitar in general, and the fact that he's kind of a living legend (and I already paid 50 clams for the ticket) I had to go.

    Most of his material, there's no way to compare it to seeing Jeff Beck on the There and Back tour when I was 16. But he did some blistering covers (While my Guitar Gently Weeps being a standout) and it really made the show. They turned up the whole band by then too. not a bad night.
