    Even if a lot of people can copycat nowadays I still think Paul Gilbert was one of the guitarists that displayed real ease when playing technically challenging stuff.

    And even if the whole shredding style lost meaning to a long time ago the intro to his latest album can still make me smile in a boyish look-guys-I-enjoyed-playing-fast-guitar-stuff-once kind of way.





    It's not like Cacophony, Yngwie etc. etc. didn't do impressive stuff of course.
    (I still have 4 Yngwie albums from when i was a teen...traded the only cacophony album I ever had for "5150" and "WACF" vinyls :P )

    This is prolly a repost/thing you guys talked about in some thread but still.


    I was given that Paul Gilbert album by a friend I taught for a bit this year, and though I dont listen to it really, I just had to include these kind sentiments PG wrote to EVH as pre-words to a tune on it (PG was always a EVH fan though most prolly wouldn't bet on it if they didn't know)



    "Three E's for Edward.
    My biggest guitar hero is named Edward. In his music, I've seen visions of freedom, virtuosity, and unspeakable joy that remain unmatched. I hope he can find his way to a place free of all pollution and once again show us the beauty of his music and soul.
    With this hope in mind, I put three strings on my acoustic guitar, tune them all to E (in octaves) and play these notes for him" (PG 2006)



    Three E's for Edward (live) :

    Paul Gilbert signed an autograph for me at a guitar seminar back in the late 80's He wrote ' To Scott, George Lynch RULES the UNIVERSE! ' I agree with him 110% We were discussing Lynchisms after his class. I love Warren DeMartini and Jake E Lee to.

    awww, how touching is that? Ya made me get all teary, Dol! And now I have to thank you because I was ignorant of this man's playing--hadn't heard of him before---so I went and checked out the album this is on. Wow! Just from the samples I'm impressed, and now I also have something cool to ask Santa Claus for! haha! So, thanks!
