Less is more! lol
Anyway, kakapanood ko kay Mateus Asato napadpad ako sa videos ni Guthrie Trapp, Josh Smith and Robben Ford. I learned a new scale, "diminished scale" pero di ko pa alam pano incorporate sa blues try ko sa backing tracks.
at least di na ko puro pentatonic scale hehe

That's funny, Tinnie. To be honest, kayo ni psychic_sushi a.ka. Anton ang blues idols ko.

My first brush with the blues was Jeff Beck's 'Wired' album..

I admit that I'm not really too fond of the Hendrix, Clapton, or BB King styles, but there's something about Beck's playing that sets him apart from his peers ..

His solo on 'Goodbye Pork Pie Hat' is my textbook case of a classic blues solo - in terms of tone and phrasing. It's amazing how he builds up from whisper-soft levels and cranks it up to that searing, distorted tone .. To this day, that song still sends chills up my spine

I haven't seen any of his videos before, so you can just imagine how ecstatic I was upon finding all those rare, historic clips at
Beck is best heard AND seen! It's amazing to see him playing with just his fingers - thumbing his notes, 'heeling' the bridge to get that trademark flutter ..

Unfortunately, I don't quite dig his newer albums' 'techno' touch. I still prefer to hear him in the traditional four or five piece band setting.
