Post Paul Gilbert - Mike Szuter "duel"
Hallo,

the day before yesterday I saw Paul in Bochum. It was really awesome. In one song (Addicted 2That Rush) they did a little guitar-bass "duel". Paul played some licks and Mike repeated them pretty exactly. On Youtube I saw some videos from other concerts and they didn't play the same. So my question is: Did Mike know what Paul played or did he repeated it just by ear?

Thanks for your answers.

Best regards

Johnny Jam

They don't play the same thing for every gig. In Paris, Paul didn't use the drill, and the "duel" was shorter than in Spain a few days later, for example. Mike and Paul know well each other, they've been playing together for a long time... so maybe Mike has a "bank of licks" that Paul may play... or maybe not, he's so good... ;-)

regardless of how they do it, duels are kick ass.

I also think they do it by ear, only that they've played through a million licks in rehearsals, so the bassplayer memorizes them and plays them live. Besides, I think they stay in the pentatonic-scale for Addicted, so picking it up by ears shouldn't be THAT hard. Still awesome. :D

keep in mind that Mike only plays bass in Paul's band... He's a great guitar player, he plays guitar in his band...

Paul always says he has been repeating the same licks forever, so if Mike has been playing with him for a long time, he should know what PG plays xD
