    Just wondering about who the people are out there, who don't know the man's legacy. Good to see a starter post showing someone like the guy here...his musicianship is alive!

    I love the idea of doubling on bass and a keyboard, and I think it makes lots of sense in this environment where a bass guitar might not always be the correct voice for the low register.

    We opened a few years ago for a band called Pimps of Joytime. Their guy had a Hofner and a Minimoog, which I though was both cool and also the strangest combination I could imagine. I loved it!

  18. I took a guitar over to the local luthier & was talking about changing pickups in it, he grabbed it & ripped into George Lynch & Alex Lifeson riffs that sounded fan-bloody-tastic.
    I brought it home & immediately posted it for sale, & haven't played guitar since.

    Impressive from a technical skills perspective. I certainly couldn’t do that.

    But I started on jazz. My roots go back to the bebop and progressive styles. And from a purely musical and jazz perspective, I have mixed feelings about the performance.

    But maybe that’s just me.

    Guy certainly has skills. No two ways.
