Funny how threads like this morphed topics but I have really enjoyed reading all the posts.

I guess I need to clarify what I said early. The last version of the ABB was my favorite from my personal live experiences. I didn't start seeing them until the mid 90's. It really is amazing how good the different versions of the band were. Any version from the 90's on blow the doors off of 99% of other touring bands IMHO.

I was speaking with another music lover the other day he (like me) really digs tastefully played guitar. I'm not into the Vai/Satriani play a thousand notes styles. The ABB always played tastefully and had great tone. This is where Duane was the KING. He would hit notes and have that tone that just made the hairs on your arm stand up. This almost was more apparent in his session work than on ABB recording because EVERYONE in the ABB was so darn good.




I agree. I didnít see them until later as I was born the year they were. The standards for later players was indeed very high and it shows. Iím certainly thankful for that. I would respectfully disagree on Vai and Satch. Both are high standard and committed players as well. My opine of course.

I agree 100%! Another guitarist that does this same thing for me is Michael Bloomfield either with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, The Electric Flag, solo or even his work with Bob Dylan.
