    Default Technique: abstraction from the Blues-Rock base

    We, most guitarists, appreciate Jeff Beck's unique technique. We struggle for the right words...we might refer to his "Blues-Rock-Jazz technique".

    Relistening to early Jeff Beck, his Blues-Rock not yet grown tangent to the jazz sphere, I realize now how hard it was in 1970 to "hear" what he was doing...his little surprises, abstractions from the best Blues-Rock technique. Fully appreciating the sterling techniques of Clapton, Green and Mick Taylor...Beck's abstractions sounded like mistakes! Like when ya first listen to Thelonious Monk.

    Treat yourself to Jeff' Beck's early, more accessible brilliance:

    Thank you, Doug. I get what you're saying about finding the right words to describe his technique. Whatever we call it, he is a master of it. I'm enjoying listening to it in the background now.

    Remember the music is not in the guitar
