I assume that most of the posters here are familiar with Greg Koch. I found this while killing time on you tube.
He just burns up a early 50's tele.

There was a thread about the Gristleman just a short time ago. He used to post here from time to time, but as usual we managed to scare him away - as we do with most great players! :oops:
Greg is most likely from another planet, and this is one of my favorite clips. :cool:

I love the guy - he makes the best, most informative teaching videos I've ever owned.
he also is funny as hell and sometimes I watch them just because he makes me laugh.
He's a real character of the cartoon variety and can just kill on the guitar, no matter what kind it is.

He is so talented, it freaks me out! to be at a level where you literally think something and your fingers make it happen...

He's great as player and teacher.

My favorite line of his in one of his blues teaching videos when discussing the importance of having a good vibrato and it being a mirror into the soul is hilarious and accurate all at the same time. It wasn't until watching that that I noticed my own weakness of vibrato with the first index finger note of a blues run. I've worked on that ever since and have improved it and all my vibratos.
In this particular blues video he does Albert King, Albert Collins, Clapton, Hubert Sumlin, SRV, Otis Rush and a few others with amazing accuracy. He's even figured out how to sound like Albert Collins in standard tuning and no capo - no easy feat! Then in his Lynyrd Skynyrd video he just tears up Steve Gaines and ED king parts as if there his own.
I love his devotion to accuracy to respect the importance of the masters legacy's.
While at the same time telling you the importance of finding your own voice.
His videos are the best guitar teaching videos ever made in my opinion, in every category.
