What's up? I'm new around here. I agree with you 100% and i couldn't have said it better.tcsned wrote:I sense some sarcasm in the remarks . . . I hope.
JK is an awesome player and though I don't know him personally, seems like a total class act. He's got one of the toughest jobs in rock-n-roll, filling unfillable shoes that even the talents of Warren, Jimmy Herring, and others couldn't really do and he has done remarkably well. It's a tough spot to be in between the expectations of playing a certain way and needing to not be a clone (which he could do if he wanted). He has a good blend of familiar and new that, at least to me, keeps it sounding like GD music without being clone-ish. He succeeds at what I try to do only a buhzillion times better. JK gets my vote!
I do also agree with the original poster, but i wouldn't say it's very heavy on a phish tone, it has some qualities i guess you could say and i feel that's because JK uses a Tube screamer or he used to, and when some one is using a Tube Screamer it is very noticeable or at least to me it is. i noticed it all the way up 2011 summer tour, 2012 it doesn't seem to have that hard nasally tone a Tube screamer is known for. Either way i love JK's tone it's different but retains those great qualities we all know and love. Peace my friends
