Joe Bonamassa - great guitar player

Joe is a great guitar player and a fairly young one too, but he's certainly no newbie. He's been around for many years already. I've seen an old clip of him on youtube as a kid with Danny Gatton. Awesome.

Joe is in some circles known as the new master of the Les Paul, although he's played Strats and Teles earlier in his career. It seem the Les Paul is his main love nowadays though.

He is also known for his amazing guitar tone, and he certainly is a guy who knows good tone. He's always got several amps running together, and his tone is always fantastic and inspiring. Marshall Jubilee, Van Weelden, Bogner, Carol-Ann are some of the amps he uses.

Oh, I forgot something important - he kicks ass on the guitar too! Great chops and feeling. I guess you could call him a rock player with great blues knowledge and feeling. Or perhaps a blues player with great rock chops? Hardly matters how you label him. I find him very inspiring to listen to, and I like his rock influences, as well as his amazing tone.

One more important thing to mention - he sings really good too. Not many great guitar players can sing well, but Joe is a great vocalist. Oh man, I wish I could sing like him!

If you don't have the latest album, Black Rock - it's time to get it! By the way, you can get a free digital download of Further Up In The Road Here.

Enough small talk - here are some cool clips for ya, including his amps, guitars and effects:
