    He seems more proficient at some nice tonal tricks than actual content, but it's good overall. The actual notes seem a bit choppy and not fluid to my ears and phrased a bit poorly. To each his own though! Who is that?

    It's like if Little Steven and Neil Young had a baby.

    Let's see him do those moves without a wireless cable.

    I think some of you are selling Nils short. He's a very well respected guitarist and has quite a resume. He's been with Springsteen a long time now. But to each his own.
    He is a showman though. He used to use a trampoline and do flips until his knees gave out. Lol. Still, even considering just his studio work he is very talented.

    Would rather watch a soloist that plays with personality and wit moreso than blind ability/fluidity. Musical ideas abound in the guy.

    Nils is great, but in that clip I saw a lot of band members looking at him with that "So, you wanna steal the show from Bruce?" look. In later years, he became much more laid back. However, in that clip, he was beatin' that guitar like it owed him money.

    Nils kicks ass, criminally underused in the E Street Band, but it's a good gig.

    His work with Grin and his solo stuff is great power pop, he just had the poor timing to be doing it during the heyday of Styx and Kansas.

    His fingerpick/false harmonic stuff is nuts - never seen anyone else do it as well, and he was about the first to do it.

    It's cold outside.
    There is some good stuff there and a host of stuff that is supposed to be ear candy but comes up as atonal meandering.

    Quite the showman though. You have to respect that at the very least.

    I'm not really familiar with this guy, but that was pretty unique, and in rock guitar that's a rare thing. Good on him. He's giving it some stink, which is um, pretty human.

    That is the right way to sing through a second verse you can't recall the lyrics to - don't let the audience know that you forgot.

    Liked the first short solo, but only the intro to the main solo before he got carried away. Some good stuff all the way through, but, oh well; I've been guilty of that too....
