I have always listened to Duane, Page, Santana, and Garcia. I love guitarists with good tone. There is enough music to buy of these guys and I guess I just gave up on modern guitarists. I didn't like one 80's gutarits, well SRV was OK but overrated. I just stumbled on the 12-02-05 recording of Derek on archive.org. I am absolutely amazed at Derek. I had read about him, but words can't describe how good it is to have a modern guitarist with abilities comparable to the great ones mentioned earlier. And how refreshing that he doesn't make the mistake of singing like Clapton, Vaughn, Buchannon, and Winter . If you are a great guitarists and can't sing, don't.

Derek is brilliant. I am absolutely amazed at this performance, the best guitarist I have heard in 30 years. I am so glad that te guitar virtuosity torch is being carried into a new generation.
