I always played Strat, (& a Les Paul) right up till mid 70's when super strats with hot pickups & whammy bars & BC Rich came into fashion.
I'm back to LP's & Single coil Strats now.
I'm an old guy, & very content being a boring old guy with a boring old strat.:)

So if you play blues on a strat, you're boring AND a douche..... Got it, even better than at first.

Somehow Rich Robinson looks a bit bored playing a solo on his Strat from 4:15 mins on.

Luther Dickinson's 61 Reissue SG and his playing in the clip is way cooler but I really like the Strat, too...

Strats are the Ford sedan of the electric guitar world.

There are enough boring "accountants" (I loved this) playing every genre and style of guitar to go around.

So many guitar players settling the West: so few pioneers anymore. And technology now allows anyone to channel any sound ever recorded until it becomes ubiquitous and banalized.

I want whatever they used on the soundtrack of Sicario, that sounds like the cosmic beam of doom!

Until that too gets banalized.

The human need for variety is why last month's "Playmate of the month" no longer gets a um, rise out of me.

I saw an early video of Albert Lee the other day ripping it up, and yawned...

The problem is Chuck Berry has been done to death, then they beat Hubert Sumlin to death, Albert King has been defiled, Randy Rhoads and Eddie are tired, Kurt was the last "burst." Electric guitar is limited. You go "weird" it sounds "contrived." I just recorded last month, I worked myself into a lather=MUST CREATE THE NEW--- I cut loose on the solos-scales+patterns be damned-first takes. I listened back---

"there is some Jimmy, some Pete, some Link......Greg Ginn.........

2017 no more can be done. I'm disgusted-I show my disgust-Shiny happy guitarists can eat burnt toast. I'm happy to write Kinks+Nirvana ripoffs. 1955 was a LONG time ago.
