    I've started a blog where I try to analyse Kurt's playing and hopefully reveal some of the magic he uses. I would love for you guy to take a look, post feedback and suggestion. The site has only been up for a few days so the amount of content is still very limited - there's more coming soon!

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Best regards

    Looks great, I'll be watching that one!!

  3. JorgeRubiales

    Nice!!! I'll be watching close too, nice work!

    Nice work, look forward to seeing more! By the way, as a side note, the Kurt pattern thing reminded me of Joe Diorio's work. I don't know how many of you guys have worked with the Diorio instructional material, but there's very little I've heard from modern guitar players that Diorio didn't touch upon in some way-if you want to play some hip sounding shhtuff, check out his books and playing.

    fakejake, JorgeRubiales -> Great!!!

    jazznan -> Thank you. I did actually check some of Joe Diorio's material out and you're right - there's some cool stuff in there, although his playing sounds kind of stiff and calculated. I really like his untraditional vocings and intervallic patterns.

    Your headline reminds me of this old guy bandleader who would say:

    "How does he do it? Why does he do it??"

    whenever his guitar player soloed really well.
    Great site btw, ill check back often

    JPMike -> :-D

    konstantine -> I've uploaded it to the site

    I dig the site and thank you! If I could make one suggestion, it is kind of hard to read some of the text because of the lightness of the font and the huge picture of Kurt. Not sure if anyone else is having that problem but it was kind of a struggle on my iphone and my laptop.

  22. callum

    Hey I have about 10 transcriptions of Kurt's solos if you wanna chuck em up there.


  23. madsrh

    Smoke -> I've changed the font color to black - hope this helps

    callum -> Cool! Please send me an e-mail

  24. smoke

    Madsrh, the font changes really help.

    One other thing I noticed is that in the Gear section Kurt's Twin is listed as being modified by 'Harry Colby'. I have seen this on other sites as well. I think it is actually Harry Kolbe. I googled around one day on Harry Colby and never found anything, but I did find an amp modder under Harry Kolbe -

    Maybe Kurt can confirm in case other people are interested in having their amps tricked out by this fellow?

    As an additional information, his 335 was made in the mid 70ies (between 71-77). Unlike the 335s before and after those years, its wooden block quite certainly doesn't run through the entire body but stops somewhere around the bridge pickup, so it has a more hollowbodyesque structure.
