Hear hear! That's exactly the point I'm making, & what I like so much about your performances. As for being careful dynamically, I'll go out on a limb here, & say I think it's up to the other band members to raise their game & go with you. I know that's against convention, but I don't think convention suits your band. Of course, that power edge needs the juxtaposition of mellow passages, & also needs to feature the other band instruments, but Glenn has an edge of his own, & derseves a band with a similar dynamic range.
