    The guitar is Taiwanese Yamaha Stern Tele, the amp is a mid 70s JMP.

    In case you don't know who Kelly Slater is, before you google him, I'll just tell you that he is arguably one of the best surfers to ever live. I once saw Kelly Slater take a door (yes, like a door in your house) and paddle it out and surf waves with it, just to see if he could do it. He surfed that door better than most people surf their state of the art equipment... he even got barreled.

    Sounds great, dude. Boutique stuff is all really cool but, to me, there's only a handful of boutique doodads that are actually worth the money. The rest all start to run together and sound the same. Most guys who emerse themselves in ALL boutique, ONLY boutique, 1000 dollar overdrive pedals with one knob, 900 delay pedals with two knobs, and some whacky thing that makes the guitar sound like a freight train...well, they're usually not very good players. You've proven that it's all in the fingers! It's about working with what you've got! Keep up the great work, man!

    I play so bad I need boutique gear to sound better (or to distract people from listening to what I play) but .. obviously not true for you Ed, sounds like you for sure, cool stuff!

    My only complaint is you make it look all too easy.

    Nice.

    Heh. I hear you on that one! :)

    The extensions to play WMV on my Macbook Pro just were released (obviously, meaning OS X Intel; when you run Windows XP on a Macbook, it could always view WMV), so I finally got to watch this video. Good sound--but moreover, really good playing. Very tasteful and cool. More than just being able to rip around the fretboard, I envy the ability to simply "think" in phrases that sound so good together. Excellent job!
