My only problem with homee is that he's a smart guy but that his way of looking at things is 'Smart guy, but without having taken the time to look at the higher thinkers opinions'

As in, he's taken the correct conclusions from analysis of popular opinions, but he's not aware of academic attitudes to things that he's talking about, where the philosophical and sociological aspects of what he's saying are put under intense scrutiny.

Which in the end, leads to him saying some things that I can only agree with on the basis of understanding that sometimes, the value in a statement is only there in context, not in an empirical way. For example, theres no such thing as an 'authentic' artist. But a lot of genres rely on that concept, like folk. The value isn't in the idea that folk fans have found the truth, but the idea that folk fans common attitude is easily picked apart, but still IS the truth in that context.

i just liked the music he made. this is actually only like the 2nd interview i've seen / read with him. my attitude was to draw indirect influence from his style as a way of developing my own rather than repeat my earlier methods with trying to be just like Frusciante and Hendrix by reading an absorbing absolutely everything possible.

as he said - to learn from the idea without getting hooked on the example.

What can I say, I'm a university student, I'm taught to think like this.

In his defense I this was an on the spot interview. I certainly wouldn't be able to formulate a terrific answers and take ALL perspectives into account minutes before playing a sold out show.

ps. Whats your take on Shecter guitars?

Someone bought me a light guitar and I have it stood on the desk next to my computer. It's more of an ornament really I reckon cos it gives off very little light, and it's a pinkish purple color ?

However, I can use it for hours with no back ache unlike my favourite actual guitar, my Godin Solidac which is wonderful but pretty heavy.

Godin guitars are a gift from god. I have never seen a company put so much work into there craftsmanship process.

I was never into ibby's. When I walked into guitar center I was set on buying a jackson. when I finally picked one up and started to play it, it didnt feel right to me. It felt like pieces of wood slapped together with some strings. Maybe because they were the cheaper jacksons. I tried just about every guitar in there, when I finally got to this Ibanez I have, I was like "WOW this feels so good to me" and it was in my price range so it was a no brainer.

Iv learned that one should never be deadest on anything. That just increases your chance of buying what you dont like.

nice specifications, poor execution. I'm sure they make some fantastic axes, and to be honest, most of my gripes with them are usually down to setup or my nitpicky personal preferences. Set up well, and with a less sticky finish on the neck, they're great. If you've never encountered 'sticky neck' syndrome before, you'll probably like them just fine.

I have a Patrick Eggle New York and apart from my nylon string classical, it's by far the lightest guitar I've played. Wow, sounds and plays good too.
Like I mentioned earlier, the guitar I use most by a long way is the Godin Solidac. This guitar is so versatile and can sound like nearly anything, including a great immitation acoustic sound.

It does weigh a ton and yes, I get back ache sometimes. Thing is to move around, try different strap lengths and a good wide strap should help quite a bit. I can put up with some back ache as long as the guitar sounds and plays well. I don't even notice usually to the morning after..

Take care, Gordon.
