Aint no pro but I know what I like....
Guitar to sound output:
Hamer, Dean, or Various, Levy's straps, Dunlop straplock/picks, Daddarrio strings 10-46, Duncan, Dimarzio, Mogami, Monster, MojoDrive pedal on occasion, Marshall, Crate, Vox, Mesa Boogie, Black Shadow Celestions, Eminence,..
. Yeah Kaki's great, though I don't get how she can play with such griffin talons.
Should've gone to see Gomm when he was down here recently . I think it's impressive that he's able to sing while playing complicated stuff as he does.
Preston Reed and Eric Roche also do the percussive stuff really well.
For him who struck thy foreign string,
I ween this heart hath ceased to care;
Then why dost thou such feelings bring
To my sad spirit - old Guitar?
Even so, Guitar, thy magic tone
Hath moved the tear and waked the sigh;
Hath bid the ancient torrent moan
Although its very source is dry.
Master? Thats a pretty bizzare style. He's master of that I guess.
I didn't actually like it in the least. Count me as a dissenting voice.
I couldnt buy into the -psycho-Acoustic representations of hand percussion he was trying ot simulate by thumping/scratching on the guitar.
Not only that, but that amplifiede guitar sound was abyssmal compared tio the gorgeous Martins/Gibsons of Nashville recorded and played by old skool master crafstmen I know and love.
Just my personal opinion. You are free to disagree as you see fit.
Personally, i couldnt listen to 5 seconds of this overly processed, sloppily executed lead run chickenscratch.

I'm Rich, I'm Beuatiful! <p>
...okay, I'm not rich.
Skill wise though... I liken what he did with something that takes a lot of practice but ultimately can be done by anyone who dedicates enough time to getting the movements crisp... like competitive cup-stacking.
Keep up to date on our ReverbNation
Neither does heIt is pretty amazing though. I like how he uses the tuning keys to "bend" up notes. I'll never have the pitch to do that.
I love this sort of music so much. It's the antithesis to the bullshiz stuff that gets pumped out of any store's radio, all of the singer contest shows, and just about any major music outlet. Great stuff.
