One of my favorites and I love his work on Billy Cobham's tune Stratus.
I saw him 2 weeks ago live for the first time in NY. He was great, very impressed hearing him live. Band was not too shabby either.
Got to chat with him too. Nice guy, funny as all heck too.
Saw him at the Iridium with Mike Clark and Jeff Berlin. What a show!
And saw him a decade earlier with Kirk Convington in Costa Rica. That gig was basically a blueprint for me: how to play blues in a melodic manner instead of just playing licks
I don't see any shows online. I would've gone up to NYC to see him. Sorry I missed it.
Same here- I had no idea he was playing gigs on the east coast.
Where's @Boston617 when we needed him?
Here's a cool rig rundown I just found- I wish there was more high quality footage like this of Scott playing live!
Crazy- I was just listening to this a few hours ago. Some of his stuff is mind blowing. Some doesn’t resonate with me at all
I'm a big fan, especially of his days in TT. Face First has such killer playing!
Scott is a great improviser! He knows how to build a solo and use all the rhythmic and harmonic nuances to make it a work of art. One of a kind.
They didn't cover the quirkiest part of his rig. His cable from guitar to pedalboard is only 4.5 feet long.
Would say the quirkiest part of his rig is his use of a volume pot over a volume pedal in his pedal chain.
I agree with his use. I use a volume pedal for swells and that's it. Using one for overall volume is pretty jumpy, hard to make minute adjustments
Baked potatoe series......scott's on a nother planet...actual proof live is pretty incredible...awesome players...You know one thing about his left hand technique that I have always wondered about and tried to do...I rarely see him use a 4th digit when he plays?
No doubt about it, Scott is God. It was really great to see him get some measure of recognition in that Jazz Times poll.
I love Scott, both as a player and a person. He is so hilarious, vulnerable and informative on the GuitarWank podcast. I've learned two very important lessons about music from him:
1. You need to understand and much music theory and you can, but when you are writing music, you don't have to think about theory at all. Instead, you can just follow your ear and figure out later what you did.
2. In music (and many other things in life), it's not about what you know. It's about what you can do with what you know.
Have you ever heard Scott talk about playing with Chick Corea? He really did not enjoy it.
Yeah. Scott hates any organized religion. He came from a very religious family. So Chick was into Scientology and I guess he didn’t approve of Scott’s sleeping habits. And It caused friction.
