    Default Call me crazy...

    I could never seem to "get" Jeff Beck. As a guitar player I understand he's a great player but I don't get all the manlove for him? Someone help me here with what I am missing?

    Beck, Townshend, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page, changed the vocabulary of the electric guitar. Things like useing distortion, trem work, feedback, use of fx, lead work... and on and on..... Players, including Ed, pretty much all trace their roots to the groundwork these guys laid out in the 60s. Jeff took more chances soncially, than perhaps any musician, outside of Miles Davis. Helped to define modern blues, fusion, funk, and hard rock.... He is ground zero for all the stuff we completely take for granted as players. His mind was, and is still wide open. Never had two albums that sounded alike. Marshall and Hiwatt, would not have the legacy they do ( or even the amps) had it not been for these players. They changed the sound of music forever.

    Imagine Beck, Page, and Clapton in the Yarbirds. Might not ever had been a Zepp w/o em gunning for each other....

    Jeff Back has an unbelieveable sense of vibrato... it's full and very round. His song "The Pump" might be the original brown sound.

    Above said, he is an artist and like all artists can have very "on" days and
    very very "off" days.

    He also uses harmonics in a way unlike any other. He is an innovator and a legendary guitarist.

    As a big fan of Warren Haynes, I'm very interested in hearing Warren's take on "The Pump." I know Warren is a big Beck fan. In fact, his band "Gov't Mule" frequently performs "Freeway Jam." Warren is a coniseur of tone as well. He incorporates many different "tones" between the many bands he plays in (Allman Brothers, Phil Lesh and Friends, and Gov't Mule)I wonder if that's Beck influence coming out?

    Incidentally, I'll be seeing Warren and Mule at the annual "Mountain Jam" in upstate, NY next weekend. The third night will be headlined by Phil Lesh and Friends. For this particular gig, John Scofield and Warren will be handling guitar duties. I wouldn't be surprised if they pull out a Jeff Beck tune during the show.

    I've often heard that Jeff Beck usually plays a stock Strat (albeit a "Jeff Beck" signature model) right off the rack, incorporating very few effects, and is able to get his tone and sound mostly from his gigantic skills alone. Anyone else heard this?

    This is true.
