I feel that I have disappointed you in the past. Perhaps you were so hurt, you buried the moment in your emotional vault.
Just to be clear...LZ, Who, Hendrix and Stones were never on my love list.
Although, of late, I have made strides, in that I can appreciate Gonzo and JPJ...I'm trying to find something to like about the other two.
And Molly Hatchet covers...straight out.
But I *did* see a death-metal-grunge type trio cover "Freebird". They were clearly prepared for it being tossed out from the crowd between songs. They *killed it* by just owning the basics of the song and HAMMERING their own attitude onto that tune. I still smile whenever I think of it.
In fairness, he basically stopped practicing circa 1974, so...
wow...he looks different when he's out from behind his kit...
You are correct, sir...I am only now learning to like bits of them.
I think of 3 things when I see Gonzo.
1. The Muppet.
2. Hunter S. Thompson.
3. Terd Nugget.
I was a *huge* Jimmy Page fan during college. I was excited to get to see him live in 1985 (or was it 1986?) with The Firm. That was the worst "big name" guitar performance I've ever seen. He was a B+ rhythm guitarist at that point...and then *every* solo was 15-30 seconds of non-sensical garbage that went nowhere, accomplished nothing, killing time borderline non-musical crap. Hell, Tony Franklin got a bigger pop when he briefly played "Purple Haze" during his bass solo. Once I saw that I put all my LZ stuff away. With the advent of the internet, I found enough live footage to convince me that he'd been "phoning it in" since Zeppelin peaked. There should have never been "The Firm" or anything else involving Page if he couldn't bother to get clean long enough to relearn his craft. Any of the remaining Jimmy Page devotees should rewatch "Live Aid" and ask themselves why a "guitar legend" couldn't bother to show up for such a huge event.
I was the only guitar in a jazzy blues trio + singer, and learned a lot about overcoming my solo act instincts. I think the most important thing is to get used to hearing the music in spaces, and to realize how much music the bass and drums are playing without you. You don’t have to fill all that space. Lean on it and let it hold you up.
Ah, I remember this, I've heard it before. Great playing.
Yeah, two amps I could do if I had to. Good idea!
Thank you all! There are some real nuggets in here and I think I have a plan.
If you are a player who naturally moves back and forth between rhythm and lead it should be no sweat. I hope they decide you have to sing too.
I don't. For everyone's sake. That's not false modesty, I really can't sing.
I don't see how that makes any difference. It's traditional to make the guitar player sing.
I'll play trumpet then.
