Oh absolutely, I agree 100%!!! I was just sayin that Vai & Satch haven't tapped into the chicken pickin' thing..that's all. Guthrie Govan has that going for him. Oh and could you imagine Vai doing a burnin' chicken picken' tune?? I mean with the way his brain works that would be insane LOL

Re: "newer" guitar virtuosos appreciation thread

Satriani actually plays banjo. He plays banjo on two songs on the Flying In A Blue Dream album.
He could probably do a bit of chicken picking on guitar aswell, although I doubt he'd be as good as Zakk Wylde at it.

There are other shredders who do the chicken picking thing. Steve Morse obviously, but also Buckethead, Andy Timmons and ofcourse John 5, to name a few. It's pretty cool, when done right
Sadly I'm not a redneck, not even a US citizen at all, so I was never exposed to that kind of music until recently. I wish I was, because I think it's a great style to play, but probably too late for me to pick up now.

And no, if I would try to imagine Vai doing a chicken picking song, my brain would blow up :P

Are we out of new talent already?

Come on people, educate me. There have to be more awesome young players out there.

It's not a real banjo. I forgot who makes them/what they are called, but it's a guitar that sounds like a banjo, meaning, it's six strings tuned to standard guitar tuning.

I think he had a "ganjo" which is a banjo with a regular guitar neck but banjo strings, not 100% sure but for some reason this sticks in my head about his "banjo playing". I know Dean made one for awhile and still might.

So Fretrunnr, what do you listen to if all this is so boring?? I do agree with you that it will be VERY hard for someone to have the same effect on guitar playing as Eddie did, but I don't think everyone should just say "Heard it, it's been done before...boring...next" Guitar playing has peeked, it's what we have now.
Here's the Farm Fiddlin'

I have that CD somewhere around here. It sounds like he is using some serious PENTATONICS in those riffs. I'd need to sit and try a few of those licks out but they sound like pentatonics with maybe a note or two thrown in for flavor but basically still pentatonic.
