Jimi Hendrix “Machine Gun”

Happy birthday to the late, great Jimi Hendrix for yesterday (27/11/1942). I’m always late with birthdays. Anyway – its a great excuse to sit back and be blown away by this great performance of Machine Gun again. We miss you Jimi.

What about Beck?

Pete asks: “Where does Mr Jeff Beck rate on your list of tasty choppers?”

He’s right up there. I’ve already posted a few Beck related things and I expect he’ll be a regular around these parts. Beck has unequaled touch and control. A little waggle of the tremolo, working the volume control, left hand vibrato, hovering on the edge of feedback, harmonics … he does it all and makes his Strat sing like no other.

For recent examples of what Beck is capable of the Live at Ronnie Scott’s DVD is required viewing. Phenomenal playing by Beck and not to mention young Aussie, Tal Wilkenfold, who almost steals the show on Bass.

Be sure to send me any great Beck clips you find.

Eric Johnson and Oz Noy “Schizophrenic”

The Oz Noy Trio with special guest Eric Johnson playing Schizophrenic live at Saxon Pub Austin, Texas. Great groove and flying by the seat of the pants type stuff. Oz Noy is one cat that is pushing things out there.

Eric Clapton “Edge of Darkness”

To commemorate the arrival of my EC strat here is Eric Clapton playing Edge of Darkness.  I’m not sure exactly when this was but judging by the hairstyle I guess its around 1990. EC + Strat + Soldano + Orchestra + Spooky Tune = Wow!

Photo: Eric Clapton Stratocaster

I’ve wanted an Eric Clapton Stratocaster ever since I was learning guitar.  I agree that EC was definitely at his best in the late 60’s when toting a Gibson – but I have a special affection for his Strat / Soldano period (eg Journeyman / 24 Nights) too.

So here I was working very late at night last week when I spotted an EC signature strat in 7 Up Green on Ebay.  Its an ‘88 (which was the first year these went into production) in what looks like very fresh condition. I put in a little speculator bid and managed to nab it. TNT should have it here for me tomorrow. Excited!
