Have any of you ever listened to Mr. Taylor's music? I think he's a really good guitarist and composer, I've been listening to him since I was really young and my dad would put me to sleep as a little boy with acoustic songs of his. So some of those songs are ingrained in me very strongly.

I know he's not as good a guitarist or composer as Steve, but I think he's better than most guitar-fans give him credit for. You guys have any comments?

I was just listening to JT's song "Someone," and he played SO FAST on it. Fast for him, I mean, wow. Does anyone know, does he have a guest guitarist?

If he's that fast, why doesn't he do it a lot?

James Taylor is great..

Playing very fast might not sound good in most of his songs I guess.. its just not a big part of his style -shrugs- Ask him! :)
