Re: Akira Jimbo
back in the 80's I picked up a vinyl album by a Japanese band named Casiopea without knowing anything about them but the cover looked interesting and it was instrumental music. They became one of my favorite bands and that's when I first got hip to Akira Jimbo. He's quite the talent and I think he's tasty. His technique's not too shabby either. :)
Those that haven't checked him out should.He's got some stuff on youtube worth looking at.
I saw Tony Verderosa many years ago at a clinic and he was really good. A virtual one man band. Haven't really kept up with him but I was very impressed by what he did.
