here one of the best guitarists ever.. and you've probably never heard of him

he used to be in brainbox and focus
now he still plays with jazz bands now and then

a few links:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGsTb__854w
http://www.op.tv/index.php?p=Het+uur+van+d...tret+met+gitaar ( a dutch documentary)

especially the stuff in the documentary totally convinced me, i'm a believer now laugh.gif
he's an exeptional guitar player, once named the greatest guitar player ever by some british magazine in the 70s

if you get into him you'll see he's different from anything else

i'm trying to go to one of his shows as soon as possible

I completely agree!

you'r from holland as well?, I was zapping around today on tv and i also saw a documentry on akkerman. The song "Silvia" from focus was one of the first songs i learned on the guitar. He is indeed an incredible player. He's not only able to play pretty fast but he also has a great feeling for timing and phrasing. One of the best players ever!

Yes - Jan Akkerman rocks, however sometimes I find his playing a bit weird, especially with focus.
But I have to see more videos of him.
My dad also wants to check him out in a concert (with me). and I cant wait wink.gif

Akkerman was ahead of his time. Hocus Pocus showcased his monster chops and cool style. Great player!
