I have a new guitar hero-Andy Timmons

I dont know why but lately he's all I want to listen to. His back and forth lead to rhythm playing has inspired me to work on my chordal chops and maybe learn some new phrasing techniques.

The guy can play, if you have not seen the Resolution DVD, he is awesome in it!!!!!!!! Technically better than Satch and that is a big statement for me to say.

Pick up the CD "That was Then, This is Now" and become a true believer.

Yeah, Timmons is one of my favorites. Everything he plays just sounds damn good.

Re: I have a new guitar hero-Andy Timmons

It's pretty criminal how little he is know even by guitar players and how humble is he?
That just make him a top guy in my book. I have a copy of ear x tacy that I got someone to buy in the states for me upon it's release back in the day, it has no bar code on it., that's how early it is. Import was around 40 pounds! He has played here in Birmingham at least 3 times for free at PMT he seems to do a free show ever time he passes this way.
My friend owns one of his old Ibanez's back from the DD days.

Hi the RG was a maple topped body kinda pink/purple it's be some time since I have seen and played it, My friend did ask Andy at PMT and he asked for pics so my friend sent some and Andy confirmed it was his old RG from The screw it era, which is way cool IMO. cheers.

Re: I have a new guitar hero-Andy Timmons

Timmons is great because his songs are incredibly melodic and most of them sound good even without a backing track/live band.

He needs to do more of his jazzy sounding stuff though - when he improvises over rock progressions he occasionally does this and it sounds incredible.

Andy is one hell of a guitarplayer/musician...a true Virotuso.

Andy is a great talent - I picked up this CD and I enjoyed it very much but his musical style seemed all over the place - some metal shred, some blues, some rock and even a country song (yuck) - it was all good and I'm not knocking it cuz again I really like his playing and it shows how he can play different styles - and play them all well - but it just seemed like the styles were all over the place, which made it hard for me to get through the whole CD...but Electric Gypsy is an epic song. I am thinking about buying Reslution and maybe that will be more focused - I didn't realize there was a DVD out for that album...
