    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.

    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.

    Great stuff.

    Is that a T.K. Smith Tele?

    Ever notice that he essentially never utilizes alternate picking? Just downstrokes. I wonder why.

    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.

    I loved the part @4:1 where he lights the guitar on fire and plays with his teeth.

    How does he play with the guitar behind his head like that? Incredible.
