    An interview with Anastasio back in the mid-90s was the first time I'd seen seen George Van Eps's 3-volume Harmonic Mechanisms for Guitar mentioned. I can't think of another rock guitarist who'd cite it; you have to be able to read music. That alone speaks volumes.


    I agree, but I'm skeptical. I remembering him talking about Ornette Coleman a lot too, and then it all just sound like Phish.

      Not really. I maintain that modern technology has made tabs a superior form of written music when pertaining to stringed instruments. It is also easy to understand, and I'd feel safe in claiming that more guitarists know how to read music today than in the past, just not that format of written music.


      It's not true, simply because tab does not pertain to music at all, just finger positions on a specific instrument. It's only advantage is if you want to play something exactly like someone else. The main disadvantage is that it limits your access to music literature and ability to communicate your ideas with other musicians.

      (nevermind, didn't notice it's been discussed already...)

        Since there's a lot of jazz talk, could someone post something jazzy that trey has done?

          Phish certainly isn't for everyone (although I love them ), but Anastasio is a FAR superior guitar player. Dude is amazing.

            define "jazzy".
            There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)

                "jazzy" means approximately 9 billion different things.

                    I have to agree with that. I played piano for twenty years before guitar, so I am very used to reading music, bur I find it to be of limited use for guitar and can easily imagine a guitarist going without it without any issues.

                      Never thought Kirk Hammett was that good of a lead guitarist but he's the one that's famous not I so what do I know?...

                        I'm far from a Phish fan, but you'd have to be tone deaf to think that Hammett's even in the same class of musician as Trey Anastasio. He's an idiot who got lucky by playing bad leads for a far superior guitarist. Anastasio has done his homework and obviously loves playing guitar.

                          I guess, I mean, I like Metallica more, but I don't really like either of them...I guess that's the point of this thread?

                            Standard notation is about music. Tab is about a specific instrument. Therefore it can't be superior as tab does not contain all the information standard notation has UNLESS STANDARD NOTATION IS INCLUDED.
