Music: Echo the Sky

I'm at a loss as to how to tie this into a larger subject of interest. So I'll just admit that I'm shamelessly promoting a friend's music. Honestly though, I really am at a loss in trying to identify, let alone describe, any distinguishing talent a master like Joe Satriani possesses that Caleb (guitar, keyboard) does not.

His duo's myspace page.

wow. what differentiates them? i'd say one having been in the right place at the right time; the other not, yet anyway.

This was incredible!
Having grown up listening to Alvin Lee and Eric Clapton, I always thought that I had a good understanding of how cool an electric guitar was, but after watching this guy play, I must admit that I have NO CLUE as to how the keyboard and guitar are used. Any help here?

Nothing wrong with plugging a friend's band. They sound pretty good too.

That sounds about right to me.


I'm not exactly sure, but he's picking with his left hand, which at that speed is astonishing to me. The keyboard amplifies the electric guitar at different frequencies. Anyway, I'll get clarification.


He's done a little touring across the middle of the country, but the time is coming when a pivotal decision will have to be made. For now, he's looking at heading out to California. Any additional recognition he might receive ahead of time will be helpful.

Not bad, but can he play the guitar with his teeth? And if he could play the guitar and keyboard with his teeth I would be really impressed. ;-)

Heh, so you'll only be impressed if he can match Hendrix?! Talk about high standards. I know music is saturated and it takes an extraordinary talent to rise above the huge swath of good musicians, but that's really setting the bar high!
