    I’d expect to see that in a Poison video. That’s hauntingly cool.

    Here's one I picked up a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately I have not been able to see it/play it as yet, as it was delivered to my home in the US and I am still in the UK presently.

    That one above is seriously incredible.

    It is in our current ice conditions.
    I’ll probably go in conjunction with the next Chicago gathering.

    And if someone was filming that process, that would literally be guitar porn.

    I just saw the master himself (Paul Jackson Jr) playing last weekend locally. He was awesome and was playing (you guessed it) a JA 15! Sorry for the poor picture quality.

    His playing is equal parts inspiring and frustrating for me. Dude is a master.

    AMEN! He did a lot of octave riffs that maybe I could do at a slower tempo and there were runs that he did that I know I cannot do. Also his comping is "off the charts" good! He can sight read while he does awesome comping as well. We were very fortunate to sit only a few feet way from him and Eric Marienthal, so I could pretty much see everything he was doing. My wife who was with me told me to "get back in the shed" :)

    Yeah! It’s his rhythm work, comping, and chord fragments that get to me. Dude can take the most boring chord progression and weave it into the most interesting part!
