I've never really g0tten or "past participle of get" Jeff Beck. Too unique for my tastes. Does this make me ignorant and a kretin, please?
Me neither, I've tried to get into him in the past too, he's one of those guys like Eric Johnson, very polarising player...

My dad was a big Jeff Beck fan. He bought an instrumental album Beck released in the late 80's and it was just an album of a guy making strange whale mating noises with a guitar.

I wouldn't say ignorant or a kretin.

fascinating....Have you ever watched Live at Ronnie Scotts? I can't think of anyone who has a greater mastery of their own vision for guitar than Jeff Beck. I get the Johnson might be seen as a speed freak, but Beck doesn't play fast just beautifully. His pitching on slide is extraordinary..and he achieves the one thing we should all be reaching for: Uniqueness. You can tell Beck within a couple of notes...and Ive never heard anyone copy him successfully. For me he epitomises the concept of a guitarist as an artist. Not a pop star, not "alternative (for talent) " just supreme skill and unique artistic expression.

I think that is the problem, if his vision of uniqueness sounds like the pinnacle of self-indulgent nonsense with an electric guitar to you (does to me), then no amount of technique or skill will overcome that.

I've been exposed to far too much Jeff Beck, along with a lot of other music where I never quite figured out if my dad actually liked it, or was just using it to show off.

I will have a look at this:

https://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/s ... t-40-years

Not sure they are the most influential band of the last40 years but certainly remember them hitting like a hammer in the late 1980’s.

Was lucky enough to see them live a few times

I never managed to. Closest I came was when I was in London with my parents when I was 15 and they said "There's no way you're going to a gig in Brixton". :lol:

I walked through Brixton at 2am by myself once, there were plenty of very shady looking characters hanging around together, as I headed to the tube station. A mate later told me I was very, very lucky to have got home, but I was full smelly bogan back then and we decided that the dodgy guys I walked past probably thought I was too crazy to start something with.

I can't quite figure out if "Good grief" or "OMFG TEARS!" were positive or negative reactions.

I had to check I didn't have other tabs open all playing different songs.

Turns out I didn't, it's just that that song is fucking terrible.
