Yeah wow! That guy has got the chops! Unreal! And the thing kept up without issue. The drums and the bass/organ were particularly impressive.
I agree that Burr has the chops.
But with no disrespect to Burr intended (when he was demoing for Terratec I helped him troubleshoot some Logic Pro issues, he was very nice), I wish he would venture into more experimental territory. Sure, it's great that you can play drums and bass on guitar, you're a real one-man band. But show me something new
. Something that doesn't sound like the guitarist filling in for other band members.
Play a sound I've never heard before! Something cutting edge, something synthy and unique, something that doesn't sound like a semi-accurate version of another instrument. I want to use guitar synth to be something different
! Use it to sound like weird space synths! Or controlling hip-hop samples like a DJ! Sound like you could be playing in Korn! Or some wild Lady Gaga video! Please, take this puppy out for a spin and floor it, don't just keep spinning around the same closed track I've seen a million times...
(I figure after that, I'll have to share a song or something in another forum
I remember when I caught a demo of the GR-55 at NAMM, at least the guitarist threw in an odd techno song or two, trying to do something "outside the box" of the guitarist trying to fill in for the bassist.
Anyway, none of this is to attack the product, or Burr's performance ability. I just think that if you're trying to sell some "cutting edge" technology, you might want to have a cutting edge sound to go with it.
