"I am indeed at heart much more of a blues player. I understand harmony, I understand the fundamentals of harmony altered chords and how to use them, so it's not a mystery to me fundamentally what's going on. However, people can certainly play things beyond my ability to understand them and if you're not aware of a guitarist by the name of Kurt Rosenwinkel, this guy is an astonishing guitar player and my favorite that I have heard in years. This guys harmonic sense is so developed, that I listen to him play...it's jaw dropping to me how sophisticated and at the same time very soulful this guy plays, beautiful sound, everything. I admire that tremendously and it makes me just a little sad that I'll never be able to play like that, but again I've made my choices, I'm a blues player."
Nice quote by Robben Ford explaining his blues journey and interjecting his thoughts on Kurt
