After watching the clips (I've seen him play before) I decided to nab his instructional books. I'm hoping he can get me out of this rutt I've been in.

Wicked, wicked player.

I don't remember what he uses on those clips (those are the Tone Merchants NAMM weekend clips?), but I have seen him using a hairband before.

actually, hang on-this guys playing is pretty awesome!-this may extend in to a general question, but how do you get from modal and pentatonic noodling, which i can do with some proficiency and speed, to awesome fluid phrasing and amazing licks like his playing!? what the heck should i be learning?

Saw these clips on the EJ forums a while ago and was blown away by his playing. I also heard him doing EJ's "Manhattan" -he totally nailed it. :)

Check him out at music live at the NEC this weekend, he's releasing his solo album!
I really want to go, it will cost me a small fortune to get there though. I went there 2 years ago and I seem to recall that I got a return ticket via National Express coaches for just over a tenner. Not it looks as if it will be around thirty quid!

Not to mention NEC's ticket prices which seem to have increased over the years.
