    I don't know how you can actually hear much of the guitar tone with all that stuccato picking though. Great technician...but if he's actually trying to demo, some different stuff might be a better idea.

    True, Mike, but maybe the point of the clip is to convince people that they'll be able to play like Gambale if they got that Yamaha... ;)

    Yeah, Frank is a great player... but yes, I would have to say that pup system sounds pretty piezo "quacky".

    True ... but for some reason it also sounds a bit (that kind of attack)
    like those Gypsy Jazz guitars (Maca- fa -whatever's ...)
    I actually sort of dig it ... :rotflmao
    It's truly not an offensive sound ... probably sound very good in the mix ...

    BEAUTIFUL player!
    Let's remember that the pickup system is for live PA use - bet that would sound decent in a louder room and/or band context. Solo/quiet in a guitar shop ain't the best barometer (could be plugged in a standard guitar amp for all we know).
    Yamaha mos def gets things right, frequently.

    I agree. FG has always struck me as one of the most lyrical "shred-based" fusion guitarists. His technique is utterly astounding, yet he plays a lot of (to my ear) really beautiful lines.

    This is one of my favorites by him. I prefer the solo on the studio recording, but he still goes to some amazing places on this take.

    WOW ... I've totally forgotten about that song ..
    that's one of those major play over & over again, try to assimulate pieces
    that repeatedly passed through my consciousness at one time in me life ...
    It's really a beautful composition ...

    And ya know what else... I luv that tone he got from that Ibanez ...

    There is a line in the original studio recording that absolutely knocked me out the first time I heard it. I believe it is the first phrase of the solo after they do the "bridge" section. It's an ascending line with some interesting rhythmic movement that I thought was just incredibly poignant when played over those changes. He does something different at that same point in this video that didn't really do that much for me.

    I think that one particular line was what really got me hooked on Gambale the lyrical player as opposed to Gambale the jawdropping sweep-picking superhuman shredder. :p
