    ...what a character. I've been drinking Jack all night playing along to the stuff that made me pick up the guitar almost 20 years ago. I absolutely love everything about this guy and he's about the only living guitar player I'd like to have a beer with. OK, and Allan Holdsworth too...

    ps Impossible to switch from neck to bridge in A gypsy's kiss (2:14-2:34) but OK, he overdubbed it and they never played it live. I finally gave up after 1 hour of trying. The licks are not difficult but the position switch was driving me crazy. And then, in the spirit of George Constanza I gave up...Because I'm a quitter...I come from a line of quitters...



    pps My apologies if I come across a bit crazy, it's the booze Cheers everyone!

    I love Blackmore's playing too - very soulful.



    I actually studied his style by recording Deep Purple albums on an open reel machine and playing them back at half speed.

        The cat rules.

        To this day I still get a kick out of listening to DP and Rainbow albums because the guy was so damn amazing.
