have you guys heard Dave Creamer? Back in the late '70s, Bob Roetker and I shared some cassette lessons with Dave.
Dave was one of the most amazing players in history. His mastery of 4ths and 5ths exceeded any other guitarist including Diorio, Holdsworth, etc. He could execute them in an extremely legato fashion with no overdrive and it sounded as clean as most people playing major scales.
I never found a representative recording up until today. I believe this album with John Abercrombie and Dave Creamer was recorded around 1981/1982.
Thanks to Ron Benbasset for turning me onto this recording.
