Pfffff, listening to this album and I love the awesome laid back western vibe!



Do you guys like John's rock/ metal works or are you of the same opinion as me, considering him a far more expressive and talented country player?

It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.

I'm a huge John 5 fan - another reason I am obsessing over a Telecaster.

Trip on the opening lick of this, compared to the opening lick of the video posted above...




Here he is jammin some Chicken Pickn...




I like his version of Beat-It better than the original...





There's a video of him floating around somewhere that I saw. I believe it was either Les Paul or Jim Marshall, at a quaint blues club playing one evening, John 5 had just played a Marilyn Manson show and came to the place wearing his bizarre stage clothes and hops on stage to jam some blues with him.

I just appreciate that J5 enjoys all kinds of music and dabbles (very good) with whatever is floating his boat at the time. He's one of those players that make even music I don't enjoy much sound fun.

Definitely an awesome musician and yes, I can see the similarities between the piece I posted and the one you did biggrin.gif

I also know how to play the licks in the second video, because they are actually the only things I've learned from him

I like John 5, he plays very good and he has a unique style. I find his country playing outstanding, and this song that Cosmin posted is great!

I think he's a great all round musician. His Country stuff is better than some 'named' Nashville artists I've heard!! wink.gif

He is an awesome guitar player and his new album is great...I listen to it a lot and really enjoy the combination of heavy songs and accoustic songs.
His mix of style is unique - I bought his instructional video but there are only very short lesson and many videos on it...

He's not the first person I'd run to, to listen to Country playing. For the flashy country stuff I'd go to J D Simo or Andy Wood.

I'll look into John 5 a little more, I didn't like his 1st album that much, so gave up after that.

So many great C&W Telecaster shredders.

Danny Gatton is the reason my Tele pickup selector switch is bent up!
