my fav section From the linked NY Times article: "A Guitar Hero Won’t Play the Game " by Larry Rother

"....The most illuminating moment of the visit may have been supplied by Stephen Colbert in the monologue that opened the Grammy show. “Honey, do you know who Jeff Beck is?” he asked his daughter, sitting in the audience. When she shook her head no and looked baffled, Mr. Colbert explained: “Well, you know the game ‘Guitar Hero?’ He has the all-time high score — and he’s never played it.”

That, in a nutshell, defines Mr. Beck’s peculiar situation. At 65, with a distinguished career that dates back to the earliest days of the British Invasion, he remains the greatest guitarist that millions of people have never heard of. But the master instrumentalist in him has resisted making the concessions that would allow him to be heard more widely in an era in which his craft has been reduced to a video game with colored buttons.

The creators of “Guitar Hero” invited Mr. Beck to be an avatar in the game, but he declined. “Who wants to be in a kid’s game, like a toy shop?” he asked dismissively during an interview the day before the Grammys. “There’s just this mad avalanche of material that’s available, so it’s so hard for aspiring young players to find where they should go” and “not be enslaved to yet another tool or device .....

Beck has the ability to bring tears of elation to my eyes, he always has ... i've seen the man play a zillion times (first in 1982) and he seems to get better and better and better each time--he usually plays the "Historic Tennessee Theater" here at least once a year it seems, and though the mid-back seats obviously sound 'better' i've been 'up front' enough times to see the sweat and get that feeling of wonder and awe and horrid-self-actualization that watching some one make "IT" look soooo effortless.
sure; he uses only his fingers
and no; that aint a vol-peddle its his picky on the vol-pot next to the finger over the whammy bar that connects to the ???
then he rips a line you think "gotta be a pick!" only to realize it was just Jeff, an Amp a level boot and a Stratocaster. thats it.

anyways the tunes mentioned in NYTimes = his renditions of 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' and 'A Day In The Life'

both are Godlike and so, in need of sharing (if not but for contextual flow)

I love Jeff beck, in fact, his electronic rock albums are the ones that inspired me to take that direction, also I play a lot with the classic whammy Beck style.

He's a true guitar hero

i hadn't thought of that , but it makes perfect sense to me! ...now that you've said it, i can hear a lot of his "Guitar Shop" type stuff in yer compositions, cool, very cool.
you may wanna check out (try: 'Practically Wired ...or How i Became Guitar Boy from 95, its instrumental) some Bill Nelson (stuff like yers and the Jeff Elec lps ) from the mid-ninties onwards, he plays "all" of it and ... and ...
you'd love it (betting)

OH HELL YEAH ! (watching his right hand is humbling as hell!)
i have the Live at Ronnie Scotts, Japan 06, and a boot of a Live 2009 show on DVD .. its a lesson every-damn-time-time. a great lesson.

he does SOOO much with sooo little FX/etc aide .. just goes to show, tone and soul are in the fingers , NOT inna stomp box (though my lovely wife just bought me a killah pedal (lol) fer an early BDay thang)

His playing on these vids reminds me of an ancient Ace Freely (yes, the git player in KISS)interview that "got great" when he was asked about asked about his rig (early 70's) and how Frampton, Perry +-etc were using Talk Boxes and such: "if you 'need' more than an amp and a guitar..you may want to consider taking more lessons!" ... always loved that!
and NO i aint some big KISS fan (though i bought the first three as they came out! LOL)

RAWK!
