    I'd love to learn more of this style of playing.

    Though, this is really another reason I'm annoyed that Joey Eppard/3 aren't more famous. He's right in this style at times, just with a different sort of voice, and isn't quite a pretty boy like Mayer

    He's kind of annoying, isn't he? I remember the first time (only time, really) I saw him live, at the Iron Horse (I think) in Northhampton, probably a year or two before his first album was released but after he'd written the material, demo'd it, and had developed a bit of a Napster following on the college scene.

    I'd always written him off as kind of a DMB ripoff, but he blew me away - great performer, but he showed up with a fanned fret Novax and absolutely floored me. In particular, there was a spectacular cover of SRV's "Lenny" between his own tunes...

    I don't know why everyone thinks he's such a douche - he does make funny faces - but even if he is, I think people forget that it often takes a special kind of person, usually one with a large ego, to perform like that in front of crowds like that, and manage a successful solo musical career.
