    Re: This Is A Great Q&A If You're Into One Of The Greatest Guitar Players Of All Time

    Jeez I would have worded my post 1000 times better if I knew Don Felder was going to actually read it. I feel like a jerk for saying anything disparaging at all. As soon as I stop feeling ashamed of myself, I'll feel excited like I should. I did order his book and disc though... my interest has been piqued, to say the least.

    I wonder why not, because he can't or doesn't want to?

      Wow! Don Felder named me! Holy Crap! Holy CRAP!

      Jolly, you're the best! I think it's great that MJ passed on your post to Mr. Felder. And it was very generous of him to respond as he did.

      I'm about an inch taller today!

        Man! I feel bad.. I should have said how much I loved his playing..

        I really did. Just wish I was 70 rows closer..

        Only thing I didn't like about it was that all he had was a small curtain like thing behind him with the huge foreigner sign sticking out behind on both ends..

        I feel so happy he actually wrote my username!!!

          With many guitarists, the fire burns brightest with the passion and energy of youth.

              Always thought the Eagles were akin to a great meal. Frey, Meisner and Henley were the protein, starch and the veg. Felder and Walsh the salt, pepper and awesome sauce that elevated the dish to out of this world levels of yummy.

                Ugh, this thread got certified as spectacular a million times over when FREAKIN DON FELDER gave his insight personally. Wish i had posted earlier. Maybe I still have chance...? Haha, congrats jolly.

                Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time ... For me, the cloth once more to spin
                At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom ... Is this to end or just begin?

                  Got to give Felder props for tone. I suppose I have liked more of what he has done, that I know of, than disliked.

                      Great thread and a great read Jolly! Thanks for sharing!! Don gets alot of acclaim, but is VERY under appreciated in the grand scheme. Meaning, player ratings and polls and such.. Its the flashy guys that get the props. Kinda the old saying, the squeaky wheel gets the most grease.. But yeah, tasty tasty playing and epic writing! Reading the response you got, AND the interview makes me an even bigger fan cuz he seems to be quite nice as well.. WOW.

                      Believe me when I say that some of the most amazing music in history was made on equipment that's not as good as what you own right now.

                        I'm so glad you mentioned Joe Walsh. He is one of my favorite guitar players of all time and a really great guy to boot. Been through tough times, but came out a real genuine friend to music and musicians.

                          This is one of the coolest things I've ever read. Jolly, MJ, Don, you guys all rule. Yeah, I've loved and appreciated The Eagles tones and Felder's playing since the 70s. He doesn't play solos, he composes them. I remember when Heavy Metal came out, that song and guitar tones blew me away. Actually pretty heavy for the time. The delay was hellacious, and that sound...so perfect.
                          My songs....enjoy! (hopefully )

                                No. If he wants to learn let him (PhD in Cognitive Psychology, human learning & skill acquisition focus).
