    If you close your eyes and listen to him you'll see that he's playing a bunch of crap. How you play a note or what technique you use makes no difference, it's the music you create. I didn't hear anything in his playing that I haven't heard from a million other guys as I walk through a music store on a Saturday afternoon. Understand, I'm judging him solely from the clip and my opinion could change if I were able to hear him in a group context.

    Geez...
    I was only rapping with him a couple Saturdays ago in one of our local music stores.
    He's bad, though, I need to hear him in a setting where he can actually PLAY & stretch out with musicians of equal or higher caliber(I've only seen him in a couple of cover bands in local bars...as "Spidey" sez, it's all been seen/done before).

    Heres a quote from his web site ( http://members.bellatlantic.net/~qqbear1/ )http://members.bellatlantic.net/~qqbear1/ )
    "I don't know really. I started playing this way when I was fifteen. It just felt comfortable to me. I don't think there are absolutely right ways to do things or absolutely wrong. Everybody needs to do what works for them. Experiment with whatever comes to mind. This is just what works best for me."
