    Ok, I've been a lazy slug lately.
    I heard Crybaby's (Lasse) take of SRV's Texas Flood and was totally floored.

    So I got a few band aids for my jaw that hit the floor, dusted myself off and plugged in the ol' Warmoth chambered swamp ash "strat" (with maple fingerboard and steel frets, and Dimarzio Virtual Vintage pickups) Closed my eyes and went on auto pilot.

    For anyone interested, I used the Barber Tone Press (set with blend almost off) into a Zen Drive, into a Sans Amp (original) into my '70's Marshall set clean and low volume.

    Holy crow, that was fantastic! I couldn't believe the bends and the phrasing- that was awesome! I loved the ending- that smoked!

    Hey thanks guys :)

    Damn, if you want to truly hear some major sick ass guitarist, Chris Amelar from NJ will cause a mental blowout. from straight ahead bop, to sick country, to Holdsworth. A great friend. Sub, email me directly. I'd like to see if there are enough brain cells left in my numb skull to see if I remember you :)

    Well,Harry you know i´m a sucker for your playing but this is to much...
    Daaaaamn your good!Love your perfect bends and the energy of your playing.At about 3:30 i can see you sweating and grinding your teeth to get out that bad ass vibe you got going.

    If i were a girl standing in front of the stage when your playing like that,
    i would run to the nearest tatooparlor to to get inprinted "Harry" on the left one and "J" on the right...:)

    Thx guys :)

    To anyone interested: I was using a surf pick on this track. This is a pick made from Lignum Vitae wood from http://surfpick.com/

    These have a very unique tone which I really love. Over the years I have used picks made from stone, steel, brass, graphite, and jus' about every plastic. Each has their own tone.

    Hey thanks to all :)
    Was a blast to play 'fer sure. I think a simple slow blues is my favorite thing to play

    Lasse, It would be both a blast and honor to meet you bud

    Wouldn't it be a kick to have some sorta Gear Page hang somewhere...

    Would be fun but... I can't even get my lazy butt over to meet Scott Lerner, just an hour away. We need to do that Scott, I need a series of major musical kicks in the butt... I'm workin' on my best imitation of a mop bro... gotta dirty floor?

    I'm thinking of goin' to NAMM next year, I know some of you meet there
