    More Chris Poland appreciation

    By now, everyone has probably seen this one:

    I just found this one, where he talks about bending:

    How the hell does he squeeze so many little bends into a fast progression like that?

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    I play bass in a band called Weaponlord.

    I also play bass in a band called Northern Crown.

    I used to play bass in a band called Faethom.

    Killer! The Jan Hammer mention is a great one. He's one of the more "guitar like" keyboard players out there, and an awesome fusion composer to boot.

    Jesus that guy's got a friggin' ear to hear all those bend pitches perfectly while playing that fast. I have a new appreciation for him, that's for sure.

    I was wondering what's up with the index finger on his fretting hand and found this on Wikipedia:

    Chris Poland also has a severed tendon on his first finger of the left hand, which allows him to stretch unusually far with his finger, which allows him greater flexibility while playing the guitar.
    Is that true?
