Genes and environment do have meaning but you gotta make it on your own. How's that for a platitude? Yet William Tyler brings that to life. Beastly good, inventive guitar. His Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Tyler_(musician) His Site: http://www.williamtyler.net/ His pre-solo groups are worth a look q.v.
Some tunes.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqSxhK2Bsys <<Intense. Guitaristic. Natural/organic.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KL0TtnRaOY << Charming bit of narrative beforehand << Sure has fingerpicker's nails...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zdg5DIsvlOw << The comparison to guitarist Sandy Bull is wholly apt << Mr. Tyler is sly in getting in some phrasing from other tunes--there's a place near the end where you can sing"...I see a red door/ And I want to paint it black..." and it fits perfectly.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UH4G6YWYJjU << Tough to see him in a band situation--who could follow his reasoning?
NOTE: You have to listen to every second of his playing; you don't know where he's going next. I was sorry to see this Post end.
