    I would get the second video. He playes much cleaner on that one. The first video comes off as a bit sloppy.
    He still has some amazing skills.

    I've only seen the first one...I've watched it a lot and I'm still amazed by the guy. Great...no, remarkable tone with the Kubicki!
  4. thats why i bought one, jsut an added bonus it was his, and what surprised me he was using the first active mode which is rather standard, the other active mode with a bass/low mid boost is incredible

    Heres why Im not a ery big fan of stu hamm. Iwatched the joe satriani solo he hads and thought it was absolutely great.so i decided to try out some of his other stuff. I downloaded hot licks (not sure which one) on limewire, and in the begining he plays the EXACT same solo, with very few differences. And it was 20 years before the joe satriani concert. I mean, you'd think after 20 years of playing the exact same thing he might get bored of it or something. Doesnt that guy know how to play anything else? And those ar5ent the only two places Ive heard it either. He has about 5 very similar solos on his website, and they all sound very similar. They all have linus and lucy to be precise.

    .....But hes still really good.

  7. most of his live solo's are medely's of his solo songs, for instance the satch dvd solo is:

    love thang - satch
    moonlight sonata
    sexually active
    country music

    if you visit stu's site theres another solo from the same tour which is longer and different, but still simular

    ive found another solo where he plas the origional star trek theme...but man, you'd think metallica would get bored of playing the same thing 20 years on, not to mention the eagles, black sabbath or james brown after 50 years....dude, he's playing stuff the audience wants to hear.....man..BUY dont be a cheapskate, BUY stu's album kings of sleep and i think you'; eat your words
