re: Who do you prefer, Haynes or Trucks?Posted by Melvin on 5/10/14 at 12:36 am to CaptainPanic
Yup. I was hanging out behind chimes when the power went out and WH came out and shook me and my friends' hands and my buddy asked him if they were staying and he said "we're staying if you guys are staying". And I ended up finding his guitar pick on the ground after he tossed it into the crowd after the encore. Will definitely be a show I'll never forget.
Trucks has more potential, but kinda mails it in. His shows are fun and he is great to watch but I dunno- something just seems off. Tedeschi-Trucks Band resembles a circus sometimes. I think Derek would thrive best in a jam trio or quartet setting. Strip it down and focus on shredding.
One thing I like about Gov't Mule is their frequent guests and choices of covers. Lots of nods to great guitarists. Also am a big fan of Haynes' wah wah use.
