Iron Maiden - The Trooper (well, trying it. The galloping verse part is actually the hardest for me to pull of consistently than the quick hammer-on/pull-offs!)

UFO - Only you can rock me

Monster Magnet - Crop Circle

Manic Street Preachers - Your love alone is not enough

and

A Passage to Bangkok by some little known Canadian band

Led Zeppelin - In The Light

Led Zeppelin - Ten Years Gone

 

I was very excited when the Dec 1993 Guitar World issue with Ten Years Gone showed up in the mail. Back in the day where pretty much the only thing I could play was if a tune showed up in Guitar World or Guitar for the Practicing Musician. It was close to the excitement as when La Villa Strangiato was included in a Guitar For The Practicing Musician issue.

Been toying around with the Breathe intro on my lap steel.

Haven't ever tried any Billy Strings stuff but a lot of my hippie friends are big on him.

There is an amp profile that was included on my Kemper called Gilmourish, and it is set up with effects to sound amazingly like the rhythm guitar on Breathe. Actually, it is even more swirly and atmospheric than just Gilmour's guitar. I think it captures that, plus the ambient keyboard sounds as well. It's totally fun to play around with. But no matter what I do, I have to play those chords at some point, or it just doesn't feel right.

I think he is arguably the best flatpicker alive. Just incredible. And everybody else in his band is first-rate, too- banjo, mandolin, and bass.

Those chords themselves, just the atmosphere of the studio recording, the way the sound comes across, have always been just mesmerizing to me.

Was looking at trying a version of Tennessee Stud as done by Doc Watson. Then I saw the Billy Strings version. He's the flash, younger, faster version of Doc it seems. But I haven't heard anything else by him but his version of Tennessee was impressive.

The song of his that I’ve been playing, On the Line- check that one out. I certainly can’t do all the picking on it, but the pace of that song, and the chord progression- just really fun to play.
