Saw the Master here last Thursday at the convention center. The man is byond words
I envy you. He is absolutely one of my favorite guitarists. In my ears. He's one of the best. Definitely as far as feel goes. He doesn't have the best chops in the world but he ain't no slacker. That man can speak with that guitar. It weeps. It screams. It sounds anxious. I just love the way he plays. Wired, Blow by Blow and the live album Jeff Beck Group with Jan Hamer still three of my all time favorite albums....and truth...and Jeff Beck group..and...
All those are great, Hue. Check out the 'Who Else' collection/CD/album/whateveritiscalledthesedays as well.

Beckology is a must have, everything from Pre-Yardbirds performances with the the Tridents through the 80's. Even has a couple of pretty funny BBC interview clips and Mr. Beck himself Singing Hi Ho SIlver Lining
He's simply the best guitarist the Yardbirds ever had, imho. No offense to the Clapton and Page fans, but Jeff just does it for me.
I've seen him a few times. It's amazing what a lone guitar player with a wah pedal can do, isn't it?

Forget the Wah, what he does with just the whammy bar and his fingers makes my jaw drop. He did an entire peice, the name escapes me at the moment using nothing but hammer on's pulloff's slides and the whammy bar, didn't pluck one string through the whole 6-7 minute song, simply mind blowing!
He was in Orlando about two weeks ago or so, about a 30 minute drive away and I didn't find out about it until AFTER the fact. Considering how rarely he seems to tour and the few cities he goes to, who knows when he'll be back. ARRRGH!
