    Judging by youtube, Paul Gilbert seems to be the hot stuff at the moment.

    Is it because of the tie and glasses?

    Would that be something for one to try out?




    (awesome guy btw)

    I think he has upped his presence on YouTube lately, promo and uk tour for a new album, more demos and interviews etc. He's also been playing more blues orientated stuff with more feeling, slide etc.
    I've always enjoyed his interviews but now enjoy more of his playing in the interviews since the changes.

    There’s money in them there blues.

    The guy with the shiny suits and sunglasses has proven that.

    Pretty soon you’re going to see Blind Melon Bettancourt

    Slim Malmsteen

    George and the Lynch Pins

    Kid Adrian Vandenberg

    Lonesome DeMartini

    And that’s all the guitarists I remember from the genre I never listened to...:lol:

    He's branching out and sounding good doing it. We can't be 24 with long hair forever!!

    I too had noticed Paul Gilbert has appeared in several various YT videos lately.

    It just shows how the music industry is changing and the successful musicians will seek new ways to market themselves and generate revenue streams.

    Paul seems like a super cool guy too.

    I love Paul Gilbert. Got to see him, Billy Sheehan, Mike Portnoy, and Gary Cherone in a small auditorium for the "Amazing Journey" project -- a cover of Tommy in entirety and a large number of other who classics. Just phenomenal. The renage of stuff he does is miraculous, but he brings massive musicality to everything. His enthusiastic approach to playing is infectious, too. Deserving guy.

    No. That's the Youtube/Google recommendation system. You previously clicked on some video linked with him, youtube put one of his videos in your home page stream and you .. clicked on it. Now you are set for two weeks of various Paul Green related videos. Doh! :eek:

    I love this:



    man, I wish I could play like that!

    I used to enjoy reading the smart-alec record reviews he wrote for Guitar World years ago.

    For several years Paul had an excellent column in Guitar Player magazine

    I learned quite a bit from those and believe it or not several were not wham-bam speed metal and all that.

    One was his interpretation of a beautiful song off the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds.
    Another a Mozart piece he interpreted, and another one- a beautiful Beatles song.
    As shown and all his videos, he will play a song he loves no matter the genre.

    That is truly a love of music.

    His extremely long fingers certainly give him an advantage, and I guess he plays a 24.75" scale guitar,

    but he'd still be that way on 30" scale guitar!!
