    SO much this. I've always thought this is what separates great players from merely competent ones.

    Don't worry about people talking behind your back, it just means you're one step ahead and they're in perfect position to kiss your ass!

    Inflection and timing. What made Jimi and Eddie so great wasn't blinding speed, but the rhythm the injected into their solos.

    Listen to some Hendrix; I’ll be the first to say I’m not the biggest fan, but FUCK, the dude could make the guitar weeeeeep. Probably the first guy that really made the change in guitar playing happen. Check it out… again.
    I don't get the people that don't get this. So true.

    It was refreshing to read that article. Reminds me of seeing Buddy Guy playing live. He had his signature licks he would play, but then he would just play so strongly and emotionally while improvising. He is a fury with his guitar when he's shredding. Jimmy Page is like that too, in White Summer or the solo in Heartbreaker. Angus Young, at times, too

    Tony is a sick player, I toured with him back in 2009 when he was sessioning for Despised Icon. Looking forward to seeing him play in the UK next week.

    This article is absolutely true, and reflects one thing I keep hammering my students with, namely expressiveness and melodic content superceding whatever uncalled for technical tricks one can shove in there when you are being over-analytical with your lead (i.e. lead guitarist analysis: "need more wank. No, more wank even.").
