all i can say is, i would happily see jeff beck in a setting like that.

i have been to thousands of live shows in my life. i have had my fill of sweaty smoke-filled coliseums, and being treated like cattle or a terrorist, just for a night's entertainment.

that was fun when i was a kid, but no more for me. i don't have the energy or the physical capacity or the patience for that anymore. i'm a gittarasaurus, ya know... Cool


I get your point. And, especially with the likes of Jeff Beck, I fully understand you don't want some drunk making a fuss, or a crowd of teenage girls screaming the guy's name. Anybody would want some peace and quiet to enjoy the subtlety of the Beck. However, just for the beauty of the show, I do appreciate it when people are standing and cheering. It's rock'n'roll after all.

Again, guess it depends on the venue. Went to see Bob Dylan in an arena a few years back. I was sitting down and it was just as good. :cat:

Regarding these trems, they are a mystery to me. My MIJ strat replica has one of those old-fashioned 6-screw trems and it holds the tune just as well, if not better, than a bendmaster... Go figure (maybe because I use it more for pull-ups than dives, dunno).

Was just looking at tremsetter.

I installed a Göldo Backbox which works better than fine. I posted about in here somewhere....

The bassist in that clip, Tal Wilkenfeld, has developed a fairly large following. I think it is because of her technicque and tone.

I went to see Jeff Healey about 15/20 years ago and even he was sitting down!! I saw Jeff Beck at the Royal Albert Hall a year or so ago and the couple sitting net to me were talking all the way through the 1st and 2nd songs..I had to ask them to please stop...it didn't go down well but at last they stopped talking. A fantastic gig all the same.
