Now thats a tough one Rick. Critiquing guitar styles etc is difficult for me. Personally I just play acoustic guitar and am a simple chord chunker at best.

That being said I think Edge is amazing for the notes (and sometimes chords) that he doesn't play. He has a spare style that works perfectly with Bono’s vocals and the rest of U2. That combined with the amazing tone he achieves through his electric wizardry is simply something to behold. He is not a shredder as say Eddie Van Halen was but rather more of a melody maker. Miles Davis has a quote that I think sums it up best:

“Don't play what's there; play what's not there.”


Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

I thought that song was a requirement for one of 5h3 Mexico’s citizenship. I believe that song came out while I was living in Little Texas; hell! I think I still know the words…

But I didn’t know it was Garth Brooks..

Here is one of my guilty pleasures. Don’t fall over Jeff!

I don’t know how many of you out there are aware but Karen Carpenter started out as a drummer and she loved to play her drums. But the producers/managers wanted her out front as a pretty vocalist, so they nixed the drums.

Karen is the 3rd one from the end, with a plume in her hat.

Omg! Awesome!
I can't really tell which one she is but what a performance.
I loved to watch her drum.

You can hear the drumming influence in her singing - the hard rat-a-tat-tat rhythm and elocution. Stunning!

The one with the plume in her hat? V. Funny.

Impressive video.
