    Just found that on youtube, didn't know he was one of stevie wanabees. Check out his setup too, completely opposite from his current one! Fender strat through Fender amps as opposed to his Gibson guitars through Marshall amps that he is using now.

    When I first saw him he was in this mode. Cyber Twin, I believe?

    That guy must be able to play any style. I don't follow him but remember few videos from Nashville where he was chicken pickin like the best of them. What a talent!

    He even mimics some of the facial expressions. "Yikes" is right!

    Looks like he went through a mom's jeans phase too.

    All due respect, but I'm still waiting for him to go through his "JD" phase. Same thing with Mr. Bonamassa... ...it's cool to be able to cop pretty much any style/vibe but it's way cooler to have an original and unique voice.

    Hell of a player even then.

    Wise move abandoning the SRV trip IMO.

    JD is a phenomenal player and improviser in my opinion. Great seeing him so strong even when he was a teen.

    He's a freak. I've seen him live and he is just jaw dropping with what he can do.

    Yeah, he was quite the adorable teen Vaughnnabe wunderkind. We have a new one now! :p
    It was good for him to get away from that.

    Plenty of pro players out there still stuck in their SRV phase.
