Jeff Beck “Drown in My Own Tears”

Although his counterparts Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page received greater fame, Jeff Beck is arguably just as innovative. Rock guitarists everywhere (include modern-day viruosi like Steve Vai) credit Beck as a massive inspiration. Listen to his fluid technique and you’ll see why.

    I finally had the opportunity to see Jeff in concert a few years ago and I wasn’t disppointed. While Page and Clapton stayed rooted in the blues, Jeff took his own direction and really took the guitar to a new level. Listen to “Wired” for some great fusion. Incredibly, he never uses a pick – just his fingers to pull those notes out of his axe!
