Yeah he is good, I give him props but I don't think I am blown away. In my ever so humble opinion Youtube is full of players that can pull an SRV lick a million times better than this guy...

The vibrato technique I picked up by teaching myself is really fast, I take all my fingers except the one I'm vibrato-ing, twist my hand forwards towards the headstock, and shake really fast. Angus Young does it that way too. You should try it, I'm trying to learn how to do the clapton/SRV technique now.

I dont like it either. to me it sounds like hes got an octave or something going on.

His technique is good though. ive seen better on youtube though.

I prefer the sound of slow, wide vibrato, which is why I do it that way. Gotta get better with my index, though (though my pinky is hard as hell to vibrato with because it doesn't even reach the last joint of my ring finger [which is longer on my left hand than my right, I don't know if this happened because I played guitar lol]). I used to do Clapton-style vibrato, but then I learned the wide vibrato and I got addicted. I just love the wide, slow, controlled range YEAH! </rant>
#14
haha. i do a Slash-ish index finger, first joint only vibrato on lower three strings. it works okay on the wound ones. but the high 3 strings, i use the clapton style...

I vibrato by taking off all my fingers except the fretted note and my thumb, and shake my hand parallel to the neck. It works good, but I'm trying to develop a wider style, kind of like how Zakk Wylde does. I don't like Zakks playing, but he has good vibrato.

This guy is amazing though.

I agree with your statement on Zakk. Sometimes his excessive wide-ass vibrato'd pinch harmonics get annoying (I don't wanna stop, anyone?), but nevertheless I do like his vibrato.

I think it was dave_mc that linked to a video of Shred Durst and that's when it really clicked. I was playing around with the technique before and with some Petrucci, but it was the speed and intensity he did it at and explained that really struck a nerve.
#17
that was ok, not amazing. I dont like that signiture guitar with the SRV on it.. looks like a sticker.

i dont think it is, its painted on the scratch plate, and its deffo a sog guitar because of the gold hardware and the tremelo upside down, with the whammy bar north of the trem.

When I played a SRV sig strat at GC, the SRV was actually carved in. Engraved in the plastic.

He's a good guitarist... has a ton of technique but will never be anything but 'Good'. Why you ask? He has NO originality at all. He developed himself as a straight up clone; no personality.
#23
eXperiment63, nice dude your basing his originality simply on one video where he shows his abilities in one aspect.

Will move the puickup switch that fast do anything to the electronics? I don't want to break somethin'.

Actually no, I watched a bunch of videos... And the guy is a straight SRV rip-off. Everything he does is the same style as SRV. There are like 10 videos on youtube of him. Hell, he even does a live performance of SRV's Little Wing...

Now the rest of you folks, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

And to answer your question, as long as the switch isn't a piece of crap it will be fine.
#25
if the vibrato is what is making all the hubub then i dont get it... its the classical guitar style vibrato, which is very common.

He ain't as good as SRV or Jimi (tho he is definetly playing nice there), but his tone is probably the most accurate SRV tone next to SRV self that I've ever heard.

All I can say is kudos on nailing the uber-thick wah tone...that's something I've been trying to get since I got a wah over a decade ago. I've been through nearly 20 wahs and I still can't get that sound.
#31
Very impressive. Not incredible, but I could never play that well. Very nice, thick wah sound.

Theres a difference between taking influences from someone you like to completely copying them. He's like the ****ing Joe Stump of blues.

But, dude, its the blues. People have been copying it since Robert Johnson recorded "Sweet Home Chicago" in 1936. You've got a fat chance of finding someone out there in our day who's completely original and plays the blues.

I don't see how you could get mad at a blues guitarist by saying he's "Not original" =/

yea but the thing is, even with blues you can have originality. SRV, clapton, hendrix, rory gallagher, robert cray, BB king, albert king, etc... all have their own styles. sure you can hear everyones influences but they all have their own style. personally im kinda getting tired of seeing people play almost exactly how SRV played and who have pretty much the same tone.

but i guess its all part of the learning process really. hopefully people like this will find their own style and sound.
