Post Anyone else play in the "Guitar Center Battle of the Blues"?
Whew! Very humbling trying to pass off 80's Hair-Metal-Guitar as "Blues", but had fun trying!
Maybe if I would have had hair?....hmmm

While we were warming up, I heard a couple other players scorching it up with slides a'la Duane Allman, and I knew I was toast, so I just hammed it up.
My neck pickup wasn't cutting through the mix in sound-check, plus the neck pickup is a Dimarzio Crunch Lab which was designed by John Petrucci for Mesa Boogies, so I just set the firehose on "fullstream' and hosed away! The "liquifire" neck pickup is next on my wish list, it's very David Gilmore-ish.I probably clashed a little kinda like if Ted Nugent was competing at a bluegrass fiddle contest :-) I had to bring the metal though!

Yea I'm sure it was too metal for what they wanted but it sure looked like you had fun anyway.
They were probably pulling their hair out at the sweeps and legato runs. Good stuff hehe.
Score one for the old guys who like to rock.

This is one of my buddies that did it last year...One of the best new blues rock dudes in LA for sure. Actually all of those guys went to MI while I was there and we all hung out quite a bit. This guy is pure american blues
