Got to see him a few days ago here on Guam! We don't get many world class players through here, but he was on a USO tour with Pieces of a Dream. Despite the rainy weather, and the subpar sound company taking forever to set up, it was an incredible show! What a groove he locks into, amazing chops on both slap and fingerstyle. Did one of his songs too, and he can really solo. He also did a lot of palm muting and playing with his thumb, almost like he was using the edge of his thumbnail to get a muted pick like sound. I wasn't familiar with any of Geralds songs or Pieces of a Dream (except the Grover Washington and EWF covers), but was really in awe of the show. He's definately a world class player. (anyone have his instructional video and want to trade? pm me if interested, I have lots of vids myself that I just put onto dvd and am going to sell the vhs as soon as I'm done transferring all of them).
