Admin Post If you're a blues/rock guitarist, and you could receive a compliment on your playing from any other guitar player in the world... who would be? You'd have to consider that receiving a compliment from BB King might be as good as it gets. But what if BB complimented you after your solo with these words, "That's about as good as I've ever heard." It would be difficult to know how to receive such a compliment. But that's exactly what he told Derek Trucks after this solo. And John Mayer wisely declines to take another turn. I would have declined too. Hopefully we can all have a bright moment in the sun at some point, and when you're sitting next to someone else who is in the spotlight, the best thing you can do is to direct all of the attention in the room away from yourself, and to that person.
