    Getting fired up, then mellow with Scofield and Metheny

    Pat and Sco (and Frisell) are identifiable after 1 note, which as all the greats will tell you is the highest achievement possible as a jazz musician, something the clones (If I just hold my pick like George...) just don't get. They would rather be a lick library than ADD licks to the library.

    David Sanborn

    I saw that tour! Charlie Haden was behind a plexiglass shield. (I think Al Foster was on drums but don't think Frisell was there)

    Never owned a Les Paul

    This year I have owned 2 Eastman LP types, 1 p90 1 HB and currently own a 2020 LP Standard. However, I recently picked up a 2019 ES335 which gives me everything I would want from an LP except maybe super-heavy sounds, but that is of little importance to me, so I will probably be moving the LP...

    Don McLean, American Pie.

    I think you are misinterpreting that part! (Though Mick is undoubtedly one of the great Douchebags of all time.)

    Guitar Unpopular Opinions Megathread

    The 80s was the absolute low point for rock guitar and it only recovered for a short time when EVH-type playing became obsolete before the whole era ended with the death of Kurt Cobain.

    YouTube Guitar, Pedal & Amp Demos - They really aren't that useful

    I guess you are talking about reviews of heads because every combo demo I see there is a mic clearly visible.

    I don't get Grateful Dead. Really.

    I always considered The Dead Jerry's side project when he wasn't playing banjo with "Old And In The Way".

    So how do you string your Les Paul (to keep those strings locked in place and in tune)?

    I am a firm believer that anything other than sticking it through the hole and 3-4 clean wraps under is a waste of time.

    Fender FSR with nitro finish feels "grabby"

    Fender is notorious for this. I have experienced it on several Teles and Strats over the years. Somehow, other companies are able to cure it properly.

    Strings on my Les Paul

    I went the other way. I always say I am going to 10s on my Gibsons, but after a couple of sets, I put some 11s back on and it just feels and sounds right.

    Your favorite strat or S style guitar?

    The K-Line Springfield. I have owned 2 and there is an extra woodiness to the sound that I have not experienced in the several other S-styles (Fender to Grosh) that I have had.
