    Holy crap! I've heard Scotty Anderson before, but he continues to amaze me! I should quit. What a lovely tone too. Sigh.

    Scotty's still my favourite player. Don't get me wrong - I love Brad P, Brent and Redd, too - but Scotty's in a league of his own. Awesome. :)

    Thanks,

    I love all those fake books piled on the piano! It makes this whole scene look more comfortable to me for some reason.

    I once saw Herb Ellis play, this must be his replacement. I, too, will be looking to enhance my music collection with some S. Anderson.

    You can see very clearly which amplifier he is using in this video: Peavey? However, when you sound like this guy, it probably doesn't matter what your equipment is.

    man - he´s the real spiderman !
    i´m always amazed how his fingers seem to move all in seperate ways....
    it looks like a spider on a fretboard.
    i´m glad, i realized, that i will never ever reach this, or will understand, what he is playing there....
    that makes me more comfortable with the way i play !
    take care everybody

    DVD info?

    Does anyone know where to order the new DVD ? I checked Scotty's site , didn't see anything there about it there.
    The only thing I've found is an older DVD called Red Hot Guitar, and I have that already.

    Scotty Anderson- Take The A Train

    We are finishing the dvd in the next few weeks. We are also going to Doppler Studios in Atlanta to record a cd project as well. Troy Grady will be there to film Scotty for his documentary " Cracking the Code". This is an effort, by Troy, using ultra slow motion cameras, to determine how these great players are able to do these things. Other guitarists already filmed include Rusty Cooley and Frank Gambale. If you are interested, email me and I'll fill you in on the details.

    Great Clip

    For me the progression was Metal, Blues, Jazz and some classical. I remember the first time I saw Jack Grassel live in Milwaukee WI playing a Les Paul Black Beauty through a solid state Peavy with an 8 inch speaker. He was playing this chord melody stuff that just blew me away. I went in there thinking I was a guitar player and left realizing it was time to begin learning how to play guitar.

    Scotty stands in the tradition of so many unknown great Jazz players. It's a shame that only other guys who play guitar really come out to listen to the best players. Thanks for the clip--great stuff.

    Teles give a pretty good authentic Jazz tone too!
    Scotty would sound like Scotty no matter what he played or played through.
