I began playing guitar in August of 1980.
So here is a chronological series of clips dating back to Feb 1986. (that's about as far back as I can go and stomach it--though I have clips all the way back to 1982).
These are mostly in the fusion/jam band/modal jam genre...
The first one is from a jam I did back in Feb 1986 with some guys I used to jam with...kind of my early Holdsworth days. Barry Kinder: drums; Larry Dennison: bass (went on to play with MacAlpine).
The second one is from a jam I did back in June 1990....different players....Terry Melton: drums; Mike Baker: bass
The third from a jam in Feb 1991, again different players (I still play with this bass player from time to time). Don Drewitt: drums; Phil Burton: bass.
Sjones 2-91 All Blues
I'm playing my guitar-synth on this (still have it-Roland GM-70 MIDI Converter, 303 Guitar, D-50...though now I use it with my Korg Karma)
From Aug 1995, another jam.....different guys. Doug Macintosh: drums; Jim Gerra: bass.
And finally from a couple of years ago, I got together and jammed with some old high school buddies of mine and came up with this:
All of these represent the differences, the growth, the similarities that have been the arc of my pursuit of competence on my instrument.
Anyway, enjoy.....(or not)
