Can you guess who is playing guitar?

Recommended Posts

Give a listen to the solo that starts at 2:10. Second solo at 4:20. To me the style is unmistakeable. Don't google it. If you know don't tell. If you want to take a guess lets hear it…

Very few guys use a whammy that much. My first thought was Vai, but I don't hear his trade mark up pulls. Listening a few more times it reminds me of Beck?

My first thought was Vai as well - but didn't quite seem slippery enough. I did not guess Beck, however. The tone seems a little harsh for him - but there ya go.

 

Sidenote - I used to listen to that Moodswings album all the time at work. Great background music. Never really noticed the guitars though.

I'm guessing without looking anything up or reading the answers here. Jeff Beck is my first guess. Could also be old style Joe Satriani but I'm leaning way more toward Beck.

My guess has been Jeff Beck, too. It is clearly fingerpicking, and I don't know any fingerpicker incorporating these styles of vibrato, phrasing and tapping. So my ignorance has been of help! [biggrin]

I used to listen to that album several times a day for years… Every cut is great. All top notch players and singers. Must have bee a one off project… Wish they had done more...
