Steve Howe is simply amazing on this tune. What a rare find. A music video before music videos. Yes was truly ahead of their time.

Steve Howe is amazing on pretty much anything he plays! If you can isolate his licks from the rest of the band, you hear a lot of Charlie Christian-We Montgomery sounding stuff.

That's pretty damn amazing. Used to have a lot of fun with this.....with a good sound system, you could crank up that final moog launch, folks that weren't familiar, and a little "not themselves" would think a spaceship landed in the living room.

I have problems hearing from my right ear. Used to drive a Gremlin, with an 8-track run through an equalizer. This and Starship Trooper are primary causes for saying "huh?" so much.

I have been trying to learn steve's parts on this song.

some incredbily hard fretboard hand stretching at breakneck speed.

No wonder he won the Guitar Player's best guitarist poll for like 10 years running.

There's a local guy, Danny Amos, used to go with me to Yes concerts. He's been playing our more degenerate bars since the 70's. He's pretty much had it down pat for close to 30 years now, often uses it as a break song.

When yes was on top of their game(1971-1977) They were amazing. Howe's proficiency is amazing. For sheer chops its tough to keep up with him or Steve Morse. RE: Guys who are monster players who are Howe influenced check out a gospel player named Nori Kelley and his band Wind. (www.windmusic.us) BTW, Randy he's a Gadsden product, who left about 5 years ago for Japan and then Colorado.

Wow....checked out the site, Linus....gotta' say I'm not familiar. Didn't recognize any of the venues either. Probably the pictures made after he left. I'll ask around.


In a similar vein....Lefty has put together a 3-piece band here. His bass player, Jon Player, is something else. He's a devout Christian, and through his chuch he recently had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with Otiel, one-on-one at his house. Pretty awesome!

Being a huge Yes fan and a huge Steve Howe fan, this has always been one of my favoirte songs. "Heart of the Sunrise", "Close to the Edge" & "Yours is No Disgrace" are just such pleasurable music to me.

"Yours is no disgrace" is the track that turned me on to Yes when their third album "The Yes Album" was released. That and the following two albums "Fragile" and "Close To The Edge" remain three of my favourite albums to this day

Yes are still one of my favorite bands. Steve Howe is absolutely amazing. I saw Howe,Squire and White last night. Mr Howe was on fire. He has to be included in the top ten guitarists in the Rock era. He is also an extremely versatile. He can play so many different styles with precision and soul. Close to the Edge last night was musical heaven. It was perfectly executed.
I love Yes and Howe is as good as it gets.

Check out the version on Yessongs. It picks up with some jamming, and I swear that between Howe and Squire I hear three guitars.

I love the solo, Steve really gets to stretch and throw in all his influences. I especially like the
Albert Lee country licks he uses. Albert Lee is one of his heroes.

I have the guitar tab for Guitar Player Pro, if anyone is interested in a good workout.

And the most amazing thing is that YES is not in the Rock and Roll Hll of Fame, but Madonna is...

Yeah, I love the funky jam at the beginning of the Yessongs version.

Count me in as another huge fan of Steve Howe! I know we tend to throw superlatives around when talking about guitar players, but Steve Howe REALLY is deserving! As John pointed out, he's won GP magazine "Guitar Player of the Year" multiple times and that is truly an honor unto itself. THere is something very cool about a guy in a Prog Rock band that plays Wes-style licks on a big hollowbody. Howe does it so cleanly its almost ridiculous. When you can play like that without a ton of overdrive to hide behind, you know the guy is talented. Those long finger---stretches he does are quite amazing. He looks like a mad scientist when he plays. He's the real deal though.

Some of favorite concert experiences was seeing YES In the Round at MSG in the late 1970's. One if the loudest crowds I have ever heard. I think one of my favorite songs has got to be "Awaken" from the underrated "Going For The One". I Haven't listened to much Yes lately, but this thread just might make me dive into their catalog again...memories await me.

Howe fan here as well. Seen Steve with Yes and Asia a few times. Another influence you can hear in Steve's playing, in addition to the aforementioned Wes Montgomery, Albert Lee and Charlie Christian, is CHET ATKINS.
