That was a SALESMAN telling you it was better. The only way to know for sure is to try it out and see if YOU think it is.
However, I very rarely use the actual song as a backing, I make my own with VSTs and MIDI etc. That will usually slide where as you playing over the actual song sometimes won't.
Sean: How does the Suhr play? I'd like to own one, it's on my "guitars to buy before I die list"...bit of a ways off though.
Attention to detail, compression, a Shur Shiba, Guitar tonewoods, Amps. There's a reason certain amps cost more than others. People pay for that level of tone.
You aren't gonna get your car to drive like a Ferrari, if it's not made to be one.
I happen to have the same combination of pickups that Guthrie has, because I paid a lot of money for the Suhr (which is what he plays) and those pickups, and all the other guitars that I own do not sound like that.
If you want that tone, you're out of luck unless you're willing to pay.
Also, sing it, with out even touching your guitar. If you can sing the 12 bar blues progression (even if your singings awful), you have it enteralised.
And do every thing that mdc said.
but maybe theres still a party of me
I'm not sure exactly if they're "useless", you definitely don't want your solo to sound like cut-and-paste from a textbook of licks, but that's generally how they sound when someone starts soloing. I recall when I started I threw the Chuck Berry Johnny B Good lick into absolutely everything I played.
Times have changed though (perhaps not for Santana who grew err backwards and now sounds like a guitarist imitating Santana) and I like to just crank out whatever sound I think will sound good. There is sometimes some reverting to "licks", just because I like the sound, and I want to stick the sound of that lick into a certain part of music. I guess the result is that licks are still employed to a certain extent, and between them is fleshing out a melody.
So yeah, useless? Maybe. Still crank out that Johnny B Goode lick though sometimes
eric gales is actually pretty good if you listen to more of his stuff. ive heard him get into jazz stuff too and he does a lot of the eric johnson type runs and whatnot. he is a bit sloppy though ill admit that. ive never really got into his music though, but i wouldnt say he isnt a good player. i dont really like his tone either. OP, there is actually a video on youtube of him going through his gear setup. i dont know if its the same as in the vid you posted though.
he also does some nice playing in it imo
Distortion + Wah + Verb + delay
he's not particularly good, most of it pentatonic, he has distortion, tape delay, and wah. (p.s. you really wanna wanna see a black guy rip on guitar look up Jordan Stanley he's one of the best players ever http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3gHtPLXQOI )
Im just going to say this: Xiaoxi knows his shit incredibly well, creatively.
