Throughout time, certain people come along that have mastered their craft. There was Vincent Van Gogh, he mastered the craft of Impressionism art. Then we had Leonardo da Vinci who mastered the brush like few before or few since. Then comes along a true master of the arts, Michelangelo a Renaissance sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer. These gentlemen will be remembered for how they touched those that saw their art (craft).
Then along came Stevie, he mastered not only the guitar, but he mastered how to provoke emotions through his playing. His brushstroke, the guitar's strings and chords, talked to many like few players have done before. He will be remembered as a true artist's that touched so many in such a short amount of time.
All those that follow will bow to your mastery of your craft..
I feel all guitarist who will come after you will bow to your mastery and perfection. Thank you.
Looking at his work, you know that the legacy of the great musicians was transferred into the right hands. His expression in its purest form pleases because most musicians still trying to mix different styles.
