What are your top two moments that you were most impressed by Derek? I know that twice this Beacon run I heard something that I will never ever hear again.

1. I forget which night, I think it was 3/23, but during one song, in the middle of this intense solo, Derek COMPLETELY de-tuned his guitar, and I mean completely. He turned all the knobs in different directions like a madman and guess what? HE WAS STILL IN TUNE. I just had no idea what the hell he had done or how he did it. I don't know if anyone else remembers this but I will never ever forget it.

2. Again, I forget the night, but Derek broke 2 strings at the end of his solo (I think the 1st string and teh 3rd string) and seemed to somehow still be hitting notes on the first string - the incredibly high ones. Again, I have no idea how it was even close to possible but I distinctly remember it happening.

Anyone else have any moments where all they could do was stare in amazement?

Lucca, Italy with Clapton. Derek has talked frequently about mimicing the human voice. The coda on Layla has a section where I swore the backup singers were harmonizing but it was his guitar. Amazing. There's a radio broadcast of that show in circulation. Give it a listen.

I remember a Liz Reed solo at the Rosemont outside Chicago. Took it to heights I couldn't imagine. Good stuff.

1. Elizabeth Reed, 3/17/2000. It took me a while to warm up to Derek, but I'd done it by this point- but nothing prepared me for the solo he took here. It was the first time his non-slide playing impressed me, and then everything changed with the first note of his slide solo. He grabbed the slide, hit a low note on his sixth string, and held it. For a long. Long. Time. He worked the low E pretty hard, and started playing these clear, energetic, melodic lines. I can still sing most of this solo, and it was just gorgeous.

2. Whipping Post, 3/31/2007. Best guitar solo I've ever heard. I've seen Derek play almost 50 times, and I'm not sure I've seen him cut loose like this. This one grabs you by the collar from note one and doesn't let up. Not only was this the best solo I've heard, it was the best solo I've heard a good two minutes before it ended.

I'm guessing the time, but I believe it was around the ...early to mid 90's.. I caught Derek's act for the first time. A Gregg Allman and friends Show at the now defunct "Coach House in San Diego". During the Encore, this "kid" comes out, Guitar almost as big as he was (and if I remember correctly he was wearing a Braves hat as well) and proceeds to rip it up on "Statesboro Blues". I remember the Guitar player in Greggs' band, taking off his cowboy hat and fanning Derek's guitar while he was playing slide...
Cool memory.

I saw him doing this on 4/5. Couldn't believe what I was seeing and hearing......

5/28/97 - Gainesville, FL: Frogwings - first time I saw him. To me, that day he defined himself as the kid who could do more than hold his own with members of ARU. I didn't know a lot about him other than reputation at the time, but walked out knowing I was in the presence of a really great guitar player.

10/14/06 - Atlanta, GA: Eric Clapton - Seeing Derek play the coda on Layla....enough said.

He did the detuning thing 3/23 AND 3/24...it was pretty unreal.

The first time I saw Derek, in Burlington VT ('99), he blew me away. Since then, I've been one of the biggest Derek fans out there. I loved his tease of Volunteered Slavery during Rocking Horse on 4/3 - that was a great solo. First time I'd heard that.

Biggest moment for me (so far) might have to be Whipping Post 8-26-06 Tweeter Center in Mansfield. He did a little detuning there too.

The scary thing is that there are many more to come!

For me it was when he was 12 or something, me and a friend walked into this very small BBQ joint in Jacksonville, there he was wailing away on Little Wing, yes guitar seemed bigger than him. Our jaws dropped in amazement....

After that song, it was break time, Derek jumps offstage, goes over to the table next to us where his family was sitting and starts wrassling with his kid brother over animal crackers......very surreal, blew me away.

I am feeling 4/5/07. During The Other One Jam Derek was tearing it up. Not Only that he threw in a few Dead motifs playing a little bit of feedback and a little bit of space within the jam. This just blew me away.

There was a moment at the Ridgefield playhouseover a year ago when Derek
pulled some notes out the guitar that made Todd Smallie and Mike Mattison Literally freeze stare at each our shale their heads and smile. This year at the Beacon on the saturday show 3/24 on the Liz Reed solo was another that left my jaw open.

There is way too many to post. Every note is a defining moment for me that Derek plays.
