Heh, I was going to mention that about the only song of his I'm really familiar with is "Drowning," but you beat me to it.

Gorgeous performance. I also have a fusion album called "Uncle Moe's Space Ranch" that he plays on which is pretty damned good, but in a very different way. :lol:

Great minds think alike. :rofl: I got that CD actually but I haven't had a chance to sit down with it yet.

Yeah, his album Big Sky is also really diverse. Kinda what I would expect from a fusion album for the most part but there's a few ballads (such as "Drifting" but also "Brothers") that kinda mix it up a bit. Another standout tune on that album is "Got The Horn":


...which is more in the vein of the rest of that CD, but it's got maybe a more 'rock' vibe to it.

Yeah, 'Uncle Moe's...' is awesome, but not really representative of his usual playing. Pretty different tonally as well, as at the time he was playing an ESP tele with a lot less gain.

Here's him with TJ Helmerich (another unique player)...

Yeah, my only familiarity with TJ is from that concert video right there but he's got a RIDICULOUSLY unique style.

Oh, also... Google has that entire concert hosted on their site, for anybody interested. Not sure of the legalities involved but if you have DownloadHelper for Firefox, you can save the whole thing to watch on your iPod or whatever:
