Coal....yep the G3 line-up has always been awesome. Yngwie is amazing. i loved watching him with the Orchestra...i think it was in Japan...subject to correction. if you don't already follow it...the lespaulforum is a great place to visit. there are many of the artists that are members there that we grew up with...elliot easton of the cras is a member as well as bonamassa and ed king. it is a great site ran by some seemingly good people.

And I could listen to any instrument. Some songs I listen to the bass line and some the drums etc. Especially Rush. You can listen to one song 3 times and pick out an instrument and get a different feel of that song. Same with AC/DC. Their drum lines are so pure. Not much in crash symbols or hi hat.

Abby. I fully agree with you about Vai.. A little weird at first with Zappa but awesome sounding. Have you listened to any of the G3 series with Satriani, Eric Johnson, Malmsteen, Petrucci ?? I have 3 dvd of this. Awesome. And I saw Vai live when he was with David Lee Roth after the split up. I am not much of a Santana fan after he ran his louie about immigration at the opening of one of the ball games.

OWO...Santana pretty much sealed his sound when he found Paul Reed Smith guitars.

While speed is a talent of sorts , great guitar players dont rely on finger tapping or other such things

Absolem many mistake speed for talent, just aint so

Yeah I muddle through like you . But the good news is now you can get on youtube and there are instrctional videos for just about any song you'd desire to learn . Oh and I'll add a couple more to the list of greats . Dan Fogelberg wasnt only a great lyricist but could flat out play, and of course Carlos Santana .

good morning OWO...i agree. real talent to me is exhibited by the command of the ability to play whatever one seems to desire at will. i doubt i will ever attain the fluidity that professional grade players have, i tend to play well enough to be able to please myself...my standards ain't that high. :-)

Abby , players like eddie Van Halen amaze me , he seems to play without concious thought .

Don't let them church folk listen to much Zappa, his lyrics can be a little inappropriate at times

Shop...as much of a "getar" freak as i am, i am amazed by quality pianists and violinists. they can produce some of the most stunning and beautiful music i have ever heard. you know in discussions with "church folk" and music, it is explained that music is simply vibrations that either produce a please or unpleasurable sound. without words, it is up to the sound to create the lyrics you "hear".

Zappa was a genius but like most was not mainstream nor fully understood

Glad you care Absolem ;)

fellas...i was never into Zappa. my only realization of him was that Steve Vai "appenticed" with him. Vai is no slouch. through interviews withVai, it was revealed what a musical genius Frank Zappa was.
