Two different techniques, both equally dazzling.

Steve can use his vibrato bar in quick, precise changes of pitch- for example 'Attitude Song', whereas Beck seems to use it for slower bends of the notes in more sedate passages (to the best of my knowledge).

Oh yes, its one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard, (a category including 'I'm Becoming' in my opinion), but my point was that Steve can use the vibrato bar for slow and faster note twisting, whereas JB...

Isn't it wrong to categorize players into certain categories.

Well Beck was entertaining last night. He pretty much played the same set as the Ronnie Scott sessions/DVD/Blu-Ray with a few additions such as 'The Pump' that people may know from the film 'Risky Business' and was my first intro to El Becko. The band were tight, his whammy bar technique flawless and despite saying very little he did have a a pleasant, friendly stage presence. My only criticism was his tone: it was thin and had little sustain, almost choking on the frets, compared to his DVD tone which is very fluid and similar to Eric Johnston's. So the lyrical-style he has didn't really come across. He needs a high output humbucker in an Ibanez in my opinion :wink:

I think he needs to go back to the DSLs. But I'm a metal head.
