    I think if my memory serves me right, they all (Clapton, Beck & Page) played with the John Mayall's Bluesband. Although not at the same time. Peter.

    Well it was sure nice to see Monte Mongomery's name mentioned on several posts....he is definately an influence, and has to be seen live to be really appreciated, I'd also mention Michael Hedges and Lyndsy Buckingham. Peter..

    Can anyone help with how the chords are picked in this CSN song, I found the Tab but it was just the chords, not how they were picked. Calling Anthony Holden or Rick Payman, it would make a nice lesson....or has anyone on Wholenote got the finge...(more)

    I also caught Eric Johnson on ACL,and while I agree with you Gary about his playing, he is technically perfect, my opinion he can't communicate with an audience, I bet he plays the same with or without an audience. He is like a mach...(more)

    They do indeed get better with age, and you can't buy a new Alvarez Yairi DY62C for under $1600.00, this is not a $200.00 Alvarez guitar, but hand made by, and signed by Yuzo Yairi in Japan, and imported to the USA by St. Luis Music.
