  • The Jeff Beck fingers

    His style is so defined, non pic. Ive learned so much of how he delivers it all in finger tone

    Yeah, Jeff stopped using a pick a long long time ago.

        Not bad for a guy that's gonna be 74 years old soon.

          I'm glad I've seen him live a couple of times, once with SRV.

            I have never seen Jeff Beck, but I did see SRV. The Fabulous Thunderbird were the warm up act. I think the year was like 1985- 1986. Cause Tuff Enuff was the T birds big hit. Jimmy and Stevie came out at the end to play a few songs together.


            Good show, over 30 years go. Where has the time gone.

                For a while I was not using a pick most of the time. I was a just the finger. Mostly old timey stuff like Deep River Blues. Kinda a messed up my picking.
                Believe me I'm no Tommy Emmanuel.
                I have seen Jason Isbell a tone of times live. He's good.

                This is a good one.

                      Beck's minimalist style never did it for me. He's nowhere in the same league as Tommy.

                              Beck is in his own league, his style is amazing.
                              The tunes he chooses to play are a snooze
