Paul Gilbert at The IGF 2005

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I once spent months learning a set of tunes which included Scarified and Jack hammer for Paul Gilbert.I tried to explain to the festival organiser that this was [font=inherit]beyond my pay grade but he seemed to think that I'd be able to cope with the musical onslaught.[/font]

[font=inherit]After the initial learning process and a change of several pairs of under pants, the dreaded day arrived, When PG got to the gig he pulled out a set list that looked a bit Saturday night pub band.( I can only assume he thought that he would be working with a local UK rhythm section myself and Pete Riley,and that it might be best to dumb down the gig.[/font]
[font=inherit]I was a little dissapointed having spent 4 months learning his tunes and we ( as a rhythm section) kind of coerced him into playing the more difficult pieces) I'm glad we did !! [/font]not sure if he felt the same though ,but one can dream right ?[font=inherit] [/font]


[font=inherit](The bass is quite low in the mix but the drums and guitar are quite frankly staggering)[/font]

I'll be checking this out later! - Strangely your link comes up with an empty playlist, but I went to your profile first and clicked on the playlist with the songs listed instead here:

Riley is a killer drummer, I'm looking forward to hearing your performance!

Just looking at Paul's hands makes my ears melt. I can't imagine how scary learning parts for his tunes were.
