this is an amazing show. its from 1996. these guys get after it for 90 minutes.

Shawn is the one who shines for me but Jeff and Jonas kill it too. Jonas knows his way around that bass.

Shawn Lane is not my favorite guitarist but i feel like there he him and then everyone else. his mastery of the instrument is second to none.

i hope you all enjoy this.

hmmmmmm. it wont imed but here is the link

www.youtube.com...





here is bucket(using real voice on a podcast) saying Shawn Lane is the best musician he has ever seen or heard and that he does not even have the capacity to understand the things he did



paul gilbert saying Shawn Lane is the most terrifying guitarist of all time



Guthrie Govan saying how amazing he was. Guthrie has his break into the industry when he decided to try and transcribe a piece of music for the magazine and he decided to go for the hardest thing he could think of and it was Shawn Lane



2 of Shawn Lanes biggest influences were Conlon Nancarrow who had these amazing studies for player piano. composing music far beyond a humans ability to play.

another was Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan who was a Pakistani Vocalist.

you can hear these influences in his playing.

anyway i am rambling because i am excited.

please enjoy. starts playing around 2 minutes

Powers of Ten is one of my favorite albums. Erotic Cakes by Govan is a close second.

Shawn Lane is certainly a virtuoso, although not my type of listening.

All the respect in the world to guys who can play like that though.

A lot of people feel that way about Shawn.

Start at 48 minutes and watch for a few minutes to see what I am saying.

Zappa is my favorite but I think Shawn lane was the best of all time.
Control. Technique. Musicianship.
A true virtuoso. He was like paganini or Beethoven

True story. But the great guitar players like Shawn use a part of their brain that even the greatest composers rarely did and that's the improvisational aspect. Aggregating all musical knowledge and spitting out music so highly complex and original, in the moment. That's what gets me the most. Respect.

Zappa is great.

I like a lot of the jazzers. Julian Lage has been my new favorite for a while.
