WE'VE BEEN FANS OF CARL VERHEYEN'S PLAYING (and his bold stances—ask
him about his thoughts on humbuckers and single-coils sometime) for
years here at GP.
The guy can not only cover a ton of different styles with panache, élan, and savoir faire, but he’s got a unique approach to soloing (remember his Soloing Without Scales lesson?). Well, on his latest release, Trading 8s, Verheyen gets to put his soloing philosophy on display as he throws down with such badasses as Joe Bonamassa, Albert Lee, Scott Henderson, Steve Morse, Robben Ford, and others. No big shock, but the guitar playing on this record is mind-boggling. Some super-cool moments occur in the ska version of Harrison’s “Taxman” with Henderson. You get gorgeous clean tones in “On Our Way” courtesy of Verheyen and Morse (dig the killer Lenny Breau-ism at 1:45). So many of these guest-star affairs can seem forced or scattered and this one is nothing like that. It’s an amazing blend of chops and taste and an enjoyable, engaging listen. Look for an in-depth chat with Verheyen in an upcoming issue of GP.
