Read and think before replying.
I mean I'm playing guitar since the 80's = I'm older than you so I've been listening to Beck much more time than you, it's about age and not about playing guitar

I Love Bieber

I don't have top players, any player with great melody and music that sounds interesting to my ears................. I like.
Plus my tastes are not frozen, they keep changing depending on what players are recording, so far I don't like any Beck song I heard, who knows about next year, he could release my fav album ever.
I liked only 1 song from Vai new album, I throwed in the trash can the last 2 Satch albums.
Maybe next year they'll release something I like.
What I don't like is shredding without melody, one of my fav players is Steve Rothery(Marillion), his playing is all about melody and no shredding.Sometimes I like shredding but not in every bar, the 80's were gone.
One of the best things in the world is differences, they give us choices.
We can make fun and laugh about our tastes like friends talking in a pub BUT always respecting others tastes even if they're completely different than ours.

1. Agreed
2. Same here
3. I don't like any songs from the new Vai CD and I havn't bought or downloaded illegally any Satch in ten years.
4. I agree but I checked out that dude and his vibrato is too busy. Otherwise he is ok.
5. As long as your choice is the same as mine and you think what I think your ok.

Agree, he is awesome and Guitar Shop was his best work. Might be too challenging for some but not me.

It seems like everything you post is an attempt at trolling. It's hilarious.

Re: Do you think Jeff Beck is overrated?

Jeff beck is not overrated.... He's popular among most blues guitar shredders... I heard his playing alot from my friends who into blues playing.... Im not amazed of his playing....he's good but not as good as jason becker,friedman and some others who can shred fast with feel and good melody

I think JB can play with the best of them, but I'm not a fan of his music. However, I'm a huge fan of his bassist.

Re: Do you think Jeff Beck is overrated?

He is definitely not overrated because most people have absolutely no idea who Jeff Beck is.

His music however does nothing for me as it seems he intentionally underplays every phrase and I really don't like that.
Not sure if I'm making any sense here but to me it seems his music is not stating things, just sort of implying them.
