Gary Moore. ridiculous talent. And Clapton is in the RRHOF 3x? ok, whatever lol
Did Gary overplay some? yep, sure did. So what? if love to hear how Clapton or Knopfler or, omg, Ace Frehley have more soul than Gary
Even with this sucky reverbed to death production, the feeling comes shining through. I heard this for the first time right before I started playing guitar. Gary is just a few years younger than Clapton, but Gary kept pushing his limits
Michael Schenker? forget it. proto shredder, HYPER euro melodic dude. tons of feel and emotion. Hell, this isnt a ballad its more of an apocalyptic thing but Mike shreds with feeling. another masterpiece. I guess Lay Down Sally had more soul??
Jake E Lee? again, forget it. Dude could shred or play weird polyphonic stuff or whatever he wanted to play. Ironically his band Badlands hearkened back to 70s bluesy swagger. No way dude could ever be called soulLESS lol. This even gets a little sloppy in a Billy gibbons on steroids kind of feel…but dripping with soul and vibe
just because you have “soul” doesnt mean you need to stop practicing and growing as a musician.
there is nothing more putrid than the thousands of guys on youtube who play all of the cliched little “soulful” blues licks with that certain tone where they do all of the cliched 'loud and soft" dynamics. totally soulLESS in my book
