    Doing some reading and found this: https://www.guitarplayer.com/players/youthquake-2017-ten-mindblowing-young-guitarists

    From which I will quote something that will shiver your timbers and shrivel your timbre:


    "It’s the dream of thousands of inspired young guitarists across the globe: Write some cool instrumentals, produce and mix a spectacular album entirely “in the box” on a home computer, get millions of plays on YouTube and Instagram, and become a world-renowned solo artist overnight. It’s a dream only a handful of players actually achieve"

    Now the horrible heretical part that is guaranteed to bring out the torch bearers:

    "As for Plini’s stage sound, well, if you’re guessing that he’s too lazy to carry around guitar amplifiers, you’d be correct. He plugs his Axe-FX or Atomic Amplifire straight into the house P.A. system.

    “I’ve barely ever used a real amp,” he confesses. “Recently, while we were on tour in California, we stopped by Mesa/Boogie headquarters, and I tried a Mesa Mark V—which sounded incredible. But that’s probably only the third amp I’ve ever played in my life.” "

    I love this guys tunes and his tone damn near makes me cry. Ampless digital wonder boy playing a headless guitar. :D

    YOYO's interview....

    Do you have a practice regimen?

    I only practice one hour each day, because I go to class from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and then I have homework. I spend 20 minutes practicing my technique. Then I take 20 minutes to review what I’ve learned in the past. After that, it’s 20 minutes of studying new tunes or new licks. My father and my teacher also use online resources, such as Lick Library, Jam Track Central, guitarplayer.com, and guitarworld.com. When they see some cool videos, they ask me to watch them.

    :eek: :eek: :eek:
    I see no mention of fun here? Poor kid!

    It's possible that she IS HAVING FUN. I had no one pushing me to play and always practiced because I wanted to.

    Really? Plini is very impressive to me. The songs, the chops and the tone.

    Are any similar things your thing? :D Particular dislike for dear Plini or just for the prog/math/fusion stuff? I spent my twenties seeing all the fusion guys and guitar heroes that I could. Possibly I am warped. :D

    No particular dislike for dear Plini. Just the entire Prog/math/fusion thing is not my thing. I can appreciate the chops and all, but the music does not move me.

    I have bought fusion albums in the past, I tend to listen to them a couple of times, and then put them in the box with all of the other albums that I don't listen to.

    Life is too short to listen to music that does not inspire me.

    Absolutely.

    Want to hear something odd? It might be in the genes. I never played or listened to fusion/prog/math in front of the kid and he gravitated toward it like crazy. He is more prog than I am. Plini is the one I like best out of the bands/players that he has introduced me to.
