JB has played from the age of 4 and never put the guitar down, his parents had to force him to go play outside with the other kids. With that in mind we ain't never going to catch up!!!! lol
He says it never came natural to him, he just practiced a lot, now that inspires me to practice more cos look at the end result in his case!  :)

Y'all listen to Scratch, Bonamassa has had one hell of a support group around him. Man, his parents owned and RAN a guitar shop! He heard ALL the right stuff. He was in all the right places. Got a guitar at the age of 4! Dudes, at that age I didn't know what a guitar was. Up until my son started playing, I was the only guitar player (I started playing seriously at 13!) in my situation. We all have our own influences that have a bearing on how we play ourselves. Look at it this way, you're got your OWN style of playing. I've got mine. Sure, I like to listen to other folks play! I got a few breaks over the years, 'cause I happened to be in the right place at the right time. That's 'cause of my love for the instrument. Give yourselves credit and a round of applause.

A few people I know have said that DH, but changed their minds on seeing him live. His music is really meant to be seen and heard in a live situation. I really only listen to a few albums of his on the ipod.

Joe is incredible.  I watched a video of him playing when he was 10 or 12.  He already surpassed 90% of every blues guitarist out there.
