It sounds and looks like he is doing triplet pull-offs (pick once, pull off of two fretted notes to the open string) in rapid succession.

General Lee is a monster player and he keeps getting better!

I think Clapton fired him from his band because Lee makes Clapton sound like me: a pentatonic noodler :o)

I can't really make out anything in that one.

I'm just going with magic.

He's doing magic.

Peegoo and Achase4U...no worries, I have watched him in a live venue 10 feet away and couldn't follow his fingers.

It’s a bit disconcerting to be sitting 10 feet away from a guitar giant and watching him play and still not only can’t duplicate what they do but can’t even figure out how they do it.........

Part of it's him playing through the changes and part of it is his knowing those red hot country licks.

Country, rockabilly and jazz are closely related when it comes to guitar. You can't play that 5-note scale in one position through out the song. (:oD

I'm always learning and striving just to get at least close to the ballpark with players like Albert Lee. [waives from parking lot.]

ps - I actually believe Brad Paisley is a better player with better tone.

Achase4u - There's a video of Paisley playing VH's "Hot for Teacher" on YouTube that's pretty freakin' amazing. He can play anything.

Yup he can. Im just personally most impressed by the fact that he can country and rock etc and on top of it play through the changes of bop(to a degree).

Andy Wood is probably my favorite out of all country jazz rock crossover guys. A monster.

Brad Paisley is a very good player. Amazing? I personally wouldn't go that far.

I am a big Eddie and VH geek. But playing "Hot for Teacher" or any of the VH stuff does not make anyone an amazing player. There is so much tab and YT videos and whatnot that learning it is no big feat any more. It's merely copying what someone has done. And while it may not seem amazing now, if you were around about 40 years ago, you probably had a much different reaction.

We won't debate whether EVH "invented" the techniques or took them and essentially made them his own.
But he took the various techniques to a new level, and married them with songwriting, presenting them to a mass audience, creating things that will IMO stand the test of time.

There is no comparison between being able to play/copy something, versus coming up with it on your own, and/or writing the songs.

Watching EVH play his stuff is watching an icon playing history that he created. Watching Brad Paisley (or anyone else) playing HFT and Sweet Home and Sweet Child and Back in Black and.....is watching a very good player playing cover songs. Big difference.
