    Wonder if he could have sounded that good without all the facial expressions?

    No. It's the "secret sauce" of his tone.

    When Gary first started playing blues I thought to myself, "we need another blues player like I need another hole in the head". Yet when I listen I can't seem to stop. There are many blues guitarist but there is only one "Gary Moore".
    Very gifted. Unique phrasing.

    Nothing against the song/instrumental because its good but it takes me back to his (better) Thin Lizzy days way back in 1974.

    That guitar used to belong to Peter Green, and then Peter green had some problems and sold it to Gary.
    It's a very definitive tone not just because of the guitar/wood/vintage, but the way the pickups are wired.
    There are better examples of the similarities in tone between Moore and Green, but this is a track that pleximaster referenced the other day and I thought I'd use it here.

    Not a fan of the exact style of guitar as much as the style of playing but I can see Green as a precurser.
