This is a video of Jeff Beck playing the piece, Nadia at the North Sea Jazz Festival last year. I have always thought that Jeff Beck was in a class by himself since I was a 15 year old in Detroit. To me he is the direct link between Les Paul and the future.
He is still paving the way, 40 years later, doing things with a guitar that will inspire another generation of guitarists to hear something else.....
This version is great, all finger picking and whammy bar. I was going to post another live version of this piece which he plays with a slide. The slide version had more overtones but this is more like a real voice!
