Blew my mind when he broke into Eruption a few minutes into this -
and some Yngwie on a tele -
Wonderful - a unique performer with a horizon-wide blend of styles - and a lovely tone on this Strat!
So refreshing and moving to hear an artist playing so intimately..
My favourite player and it's one of my favourite albums his Lennon album. And this is lovely. Bill's the best I know at solo electric.
Thanks for posting.
Bill makes some beautiful sounds with that thin sounding strat and a few pedals. Ehx Freeze and looper I think
I didn’t hear eruption tho. Just Bills modal impro.
Thx for posting.
Given that the majority her is over 30 some have a very juvenile humour.
But anyway - great music!
You're right with the pedals.
But thin strat sound? No. Not this one.
Maybe compared to a jazz box.
Is that a T.K. Smith Tele?
Ever notice that he essentially never utilizes alternate picking? Just downstrokes. I wonder why.
For info, Bill's playing on Thursday evening 2nd April. I'll be there in my pyjamas and dressing gown...
Playing clean with no compressor too (?)
For most that use lots of down/up strokes, those up strokes won't have the same attack/volume a lot of the time. Players like Eric Johnson make those 16th note runs sound like a machine gun -- all the notes (up/down) are exactly the same volume, same attack all the way through the flurry of hundreds of notes -- being heavily compressed most of the time. Some people really like that, I don't actually. Too much electronic manipulation takes away from the basic playing.
Thanks for this such a wonderful player!
I enjoyed him more when he wasn't this timid:
I loved the part @4:1 where he lights the guitar on fire and plays with his teeth.
Seriously, best part of the video!
Thanks for that info and link!
Just a reminder Bill Frisell playing live tonight. 8pm (prob EST??) 1am in the UK. My alarm is set.
How does he play with the guitar behind his head like that? Incredible.
