Jeeze, I thought I was having an Alzheimer's moment until I saw the date on the article. JW died 3 years ago yesterday....

Well, he was still a great guitar player, and he's still dead so ... :P

The lead breaks starts at 2m 30s

What's interesting is that he plucks all the notes with his thumb pick.

Compare this with the more modern technique which is to shred the left hand around the fretboard at the speed of light, with the "occasional" right hand pluck.

JW just plucks all the notes, with minimal left hand shredding - like Clapton and Stevie Ray did.

Antique guitar technique still has its place :D

Yeah, I thought he'd passed a while back.

I was never truly a fan, but I certainly acknowledge his talent. To me, the Blues is like Bob Dylan: a half hour or so every once in a while, and I'm good. I know he was a monster player, and I'll never come close to what he could do. On a good day, I wouldn't have embarrassed myself on stage with him. A very, very, good day. But I am just not a huge fan of A) Blues guitar slingers (Hendrix excepted, but he's the blues on acid, out near Neptune, somewhere); and B) single singer bands (the Stones up to 1974 excepted).
