the great Shawn Lane

Rarely do I write about electric guitar on this blog, but Shawn was such a channel of beauty and encompassed many of the things I think about - clarity of vision, creativity, and efforless motion.

Most guitarists are impressed with his speed (obviously) but I find inspiration in watching his natural movement. Notice in this video how the energy flows to and from his fingers. He's simply moving them effortlessly - there's no ego involved, no trying, and no doubt.
