I have been listening to a lot of Eric gales lately. His fast runs sound sorta pentatonic but unique and I cannot figure what he is doing. He also has the coolest chord voicings I have ever heard. I love how he does the chord...run to the next chord, chords...runs to the next chord. Can anyone offer me any advice regarding his style and how I could incorporate some of it in to my playing?

I guess this makes for unconventional chord voicings....?

"Although Gales plays a right-handed guitar "upside-down" (with the E-bass string on the bottom), he is not naturally left-handed; he was taught by his brother who is left-handed and never second-guessed the untraditional technique"

Are talking about this kind thing? At about 2:10 in, how cool is that!

Maybe you should ask to get this reposted on the "Musician Talk" forum.

Thanks for bringing this fine muician to my attention, I agree, Eric Gales chord voicings and lead playing has a unique quality,

Listening to the opening of hey joe, the first time he plays the C chord, I think he arpeggiates it with a flattened 5th and adds the 9th...? about 1:35 in

btw you should search "Eric Gales" here on UG

Cheers
