He can't fingerpick. Not that it matters.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

if you want to learn flamenco don't listen to paul... it's cool he does a thing like that but it isn't flamenco


Well, he does say it's not, that's why he calls it flamingo...
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

oh alright I didn't notice that...

I'm still afraid a lot of players are gonna learn his "fingerpicking" style and call it flamenco/classical (not that I think it's the same) guitar...

it's still cool he does a thing like that but if a flamenco/classical player would do a vibrato like that and pick like that a real player would laugh at him

(I still think he has some cool idea's)

imo it doesn't sound like it... of course he does some cliché things like playing Emaj in open position and switching those fingers up and down a few frets...

but overall it is nothing like flamenco

I agree with you. A real flamenco player would school him anyday.

oh..... I'm not being negative I'm just saying it isn't true flamenco paul plays

I'm a massive fan of Paul Gilbert (my biggest inspiration on electric guitar) I would never be negative on him :p

I know I'm grave-digging, but it beats getting flamed for creating a new thread on PG.

I want to start listening to Paul Gilbert, but I don't know where to start, he's got like two-million albums. What should I get first?

Well, any of his solo albums are good for fun, and usually pretty awesome, from what i've heard.

For songs, try down to mexico, s.v.t., i am satan, and others like em im sure others will name.

For his metal/shred side, check out mr big and especially racer x. Any of their albums are good, from what i've heard.

To get into his solo stuff, maybe King of Clubs or Flying Dog..

For Mr. Big, Lean Into It or the Best of..

For Racer X, Technical Difficulties or Superheroes..

And Doubleday *slap* there's no such thing as too many Gilbert threads!

Ok, since this is a PG thread for now, theres something I gotta ask...

Is it true he spent the his first two years of playing guitar only playing upstrokes on the low E string and only fretted using his third finger? I've been told that by a reliable source, but yet it just seems like one of the dumbest things in the world... can anyone shed any light on this matter?
