Good point here Gabe - I see Kotzen's evolution towards fingerstyle as a very interesting one. Honestly, his youth albums - the shreddy ones have no appeal to me whatsoever, but after he began his evolution into a bluesier shredder, his music became incredibly attractive to me. Especially because he also sings so damn well!

You can hear the big influences that soul/ funk and rnb had on him smile.gif There is an interview in which he speaks about how he found vinyls with James Brown and such and how they changed his world - it's on one of his DVDs, tho I can't remember which one laugh.gif

I love your playing Darius!

I've had to switch to playing with a pick the last couple of days cause of injury, and I've discovered I don't miss it that much, plus it sounds much more expressive and natural. Plus you can go from a gentle brush to a full out snap/pop so the tonal range is great!

Thanks for that Winery Dogs link Gabriel, what a power trio! I've never heard of them and they're playing over here next month so perfect timing!

Thanx Stacey! I'm glad You enjoy it smile.gif I usually use hybrid picking but in the more pop/blues/funk playing very often start my solos with fingers only smile.gif I also like this very "slide'ish" feel while doing bends smile.gif
