That sounds about right to me. The guy is truly awe-inspiring, and may be the most accomplished guitar player I've ever seen.
I'm glad it's not just me who feels this way about JB.
I can appreciate the exceptional skills he has but I just don't 'get' his music. It leaves me cold. While he's clearly not in the mould of the 'all technique, no feel' players who just shred and show off how many different techniques they can fit into any given piece of music, I've never enjoyed listening to any of his albums.
There, I've said it........!!
Actually, she leaves me cold as well!! I first saw her when JB was playing on one of the Crossroads dvds (was it the 2007 or 2010 version?) and that whole band just left me feeling like they were all technique and no substance. It seemed to be all facial contortions and technique from most of them. Maybe it's cos I just don't get that jazzy vibe they seemed to be aiming for.
Having said that, I thought that his appearance on a Crossroads dvd when he played 'Nessum Dorma' was very good. And I do like his rockabilly stuff.
