    Ok folks,
    I'd like the esteemed opinions of this roundtable concerning a guitarist I had the privilage of seeing last night in Dayton.

    Michael Harris

    Check out the sound bites at his label's site
    IMF Records

    and let me know what you think, especially the stuff off of "Sketches from the Thought Chamber".
    Michael used to live in Dayton, but moved to Dallas. He opened up for the G3 tour in Dallas a few years ago. He's got a great touch, fast as anybody, and can write some complex stuff.

    Just want to know what others think about a former local guy doing what I think is pretty cool music.

    Peace

    Some good timings there. Reminds me a great deal of Yngvie.
    The sound clips were short, but it didn't sound like he was just playing at at top speed. His writing style's pretty complex. I liked the bass pattern in Two Worlds Beyond.
    Didn't Roth play with a guy named Michael Harris at one time, and get into some heated arguments with him?
    If it's the same guy, I heard roth did a couple of tunes with him, but never used them on CD for one reason or another, and that caused Harris to be pretty pissed.
    I don't know if it's the same guy, but I remember reading something about it.

    Don't think it's the same guy Tribb.
    The only guitarist I know that Roth got into it with was I believe Joe Holmes. I think Holmes was the guy that right before a tour, decided to up his pay requirements. I don't remember ever hearing that they recorded though.

    I can't say I like this stuff one bit.

    Maybe I'm dense or something but it doesn't really seem to have a point. It's all blah blah blah with no body to it.

    I really like Via, Satch, Johnson and those guys. They build a song around a strong melody, then throw in the shred. Once it starts heading down phygian lane I lose intrest. I guess I ODed on that stuff in the late 80's, early 90's.

    I would like to see something like that "live", but I need a little more of a "pop tune" structure to get into something.....but thanks for the "heads up" [img]smile.gif[/img]
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Cool,

    Thanks for your views and responses.
    It's good to see a former local guy with great chops keep pushing to play guitar for a living. I emailed the record company the link so they can hopefully pass on the feedback.
    Though I focused on the solo stuff in the opinion request, he did/does have band activitiy too. They're some of ( all?) the other bands listed on the record label.

    Peace
