Man this guy is crazy! Great dynamic and tone is unbelievable! Every time I hear him play I get goose bumps!

His way of playing is so unique and sounds that he get out of his guitar are insane!
I know the girl bass player who is currently working with him and here is a fun fact about Jeff Beck: He doesn't practice guitar anymore and after he get's back from the road all he does is working on old cars in his garage!

Yes, Jeff Beck rocks ! I was very influenced by his emotive bends and the way he goes instantly from one bend to another without fully releasing it down to pitch. It has a smooth effect not normally associated with guitar.

Yes, I did also know that about Jeff.. he loves working on old hot rods. That album cover of his with black hands on it.. that's his hands covered in oil. cool.gif

wow, how original and so "his" sound, I love it!

Dynamics is so often overlooked on the electric guitar!

One of my all time favorites! It amazes me every time I watch him perform, He almost looks like its the first time he picked up an electric guitar and is experimenting like wow what is this strange thing with wires that vibrate?

Great great musician , but the information about practicing is really interesting and amazing, the line between insanity and genius is very thin, with due respect of course biggrin.gif !
