I forgot he used to write for GP. Rik is such a good singer it’s easy to forget what a great guitar player he is. There’s a point in the Us Festival show where he gives the other two guys a break. Just him and his guitar and I’d have to say it’s the best performance of the festival.
Emmett knew his theory, chord voicings and that came through in his GP column. He generously gave me a lots of playing tips unlike that Lifeson guy who never suggested to me me even a single technique to try out. That’s still stuck in my craw!!
