Re: Mike Mangini
I've seen him in clinic twice, the man has a virtuoistic command of what he's playing, he's also really personable and has a fantastic sense of humor. My favorite clinician thus far.... I don't like the style that he plays, no denying the guy is incredible though. I got to sit down and play his set too... pretty interesting. Things aren't where they are supposed to be.
Also, I saw El Negro at the clinic, it was a double bill. That was terrific as well. Great clinic.
