    That's why they call it Rock 'n Roll - If guitar players followed rules we'd all still be playing the lute

    True. But it ain't Deliverance.

    Find his cd UFO TOFU (or DVD Live At The Quick). My favorite "find" since Steve Morse way back in '82.

    UFO TOFU has an amazing harmonica/keyboard player on it. No longer with the band. And bass player extroidinaire Victor Wooten!

    back to the point about lute players...

    lute players actually were fundimentally improvisationalists (sorry. little hung over. bad speller this morning)

    while they had very specific patterns and scales that were nearly universal among their peers, they all actually employed them in different ways, and different orders, making the bulk of their repitoir (god my spelling...) improvised.

    aahhh... FINALLY that hedious music appreciation class was useful for something.

    When I was out in Cali, Keith came to visit and gave me a video of Bela Fleck and amazing is putting it lightly. But, yes, he is a banjo player. Still find inspiration in his style and try to incorporate it in my playing. Awesome stuff, you all should check it out.
