Jeff Beck has that rare ability to pioneer sounds and make you feel as if you found the Holy Grail in guitar music. Then he changes into something completely unexpected and pure dedicating his craft to creating chord leads and changes that are so fine he can be imitated but not copied. Jeff never sold out on creating. He could easily taken the more commercial route of putting out tunes that record executives want, but he remained an unfettered musician. He directs sound at us and allows one to experience what he feels about the riff rather than expect us to take it as it is.
