Phil Manzanera - Diamond Head

I mentioned Phil M. recently in connection with another guitarist. I said that Phil was a guy who tried to make the guitar sound like other things. Well, here is Phil working his magic.

I love the guys who concentrate on tone and texture. There's a real musical idea here, sure, and good content, but the real benefits accrue from the tone colors.

It's all in the hands, and the ears. You can't fake this stuff, either you've got it or you don't.

The whole LP is great, by the way, and it's all up here on the 'Tube.
