Yeah, I've heard that before; quite frankly his ability to play anything scares and amazes me. I'm none too fond of the fuzz tone on the Hendrix part, I wish he'd gone with a cleaner strat kind of tone rather than the fuzz. I don't like extreme fuzz much at all really...

Every time I see him my jaw drops for some reason, whether it's his technique, phrasing, vibrato or the sheer variety in his playing.

He is really good. I watched the tapping lesson of his and he is a really good teacher too.

Got the CD with that on somewhere, he is an absolutely blinding player. Can't say I ever managed to complete many of his columns.

this scares me

I love in the first lick when he says "I thought it would be funny to tap that a minor 6th higher,"...funny?

And quite frankly lick number 5 scares the bejeezus out of me.

Is that a blue hairtie I can see on the end of the nut? Does that mean he... doesn't dampen with his right/left hand?

(Would've liked to have heard some gain on those licks. They looked – and sounded – very cool.)

Nah, he does mute a lot; he's possibly the biggest advocate of muting unplayed strings I've ever heard give a lesson. As far as I can see he doesn't actually use it at any point in the lesson. Maybe he had his hair tied back before the lesson and just needed somewhere to put it where he wouldn't loose it?

I also would have loved some gain on those licks, especially some of that sweet Cornford grit; that man has some of the greatest tone I've ever heard.

He's just so fast... When he plays the first lick slow and then is like, ok we'll speed that up a little bit

and then rockets through it, you're just left jaw hanging down :|

Every time dude, every time.

Lick 5 is the one that really gets me though, I'm not sure I could play that slowly just yet; it's just mind blowing stuff.

Edit: It's a bitch to tab as well...

He is indeed, one of the few people who currently register as God in my eyes and one of the very few people I would kill to see live.

For all those who are interested I've tabbed the licks he goes through and attached them. Happy practicing, especially on that 5th one

Man, it's a wired situation for guthrie, he never seems to get the credit he deserves, you never really hear his name mentioned with the "greats", but everyone that hears him thinks he's amazing. So diverse, and seemingly a master of all styles.

Give it time; he's only got one album out, no one makes it big with the first album. I have no doubt in my mind that he will make it into the pantheon in good time.

He did a tapping lesson in the new Guitar Techniques and at first I rolled my eyes thinking it would maybe just be Eruption rehashes(pl?) but when I listened to it, the speed, tone, versatility and originality of the feature just floored me.

I'll have to pick that up then; Guthrie lessons are well worth getting, even if you're already familiar with the technique, he always comes up with something I wouldn't have thought of.

I just found this on YooToob:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEaxB1Rq-mo

The intro and outro licks are sick! I have been trying to figure out what the effects are, best I can guess are Phaser & Delay, with a harmonizer (either that or its double tracked)

Is there a tab for this? I was thinking about picking up his books, are they good?

I've heard nothing but good things about his creative guitar books and I'm assuming that whichever one that track is from would have a transcription of that solo in it, or at least information on his kind of thought process to write/play something like it.

I will warn you though: it's probably a lot harder than it sounds

Or, as with most Govan stuff, it is as hard as it sounds - ****ing hard!

I'm hopefully going to pick these books up - am I right in thinking there are two? I can only seem to find 2 on Amazon UK.

As far as I know, yes there are only 2. I would say though the ideas he presents probably assume a high level of technique already so if you're planning on using them as chop-building exercise books I doubt you'll have much to really work with.
