How did Jeff Beck get so many weird sounds out of his guitar?
He doesn´t use a pick. Just his thumb and index (sometimes middle) fingers. He applies excessive use of the whammy by lifting and pushing down on it while tapping on the strings with his bare fingers and plucking the strings not in the body of the guitar, but on the neck and simultaneously finger muting after a half a second the string was plucked.
Not to mention all this is done in odd timing, high improv skills and amazing visionary point of view of the technicality of guitar playing.
How much is the Jeff Beck LP Record "Then And Now" worth today?
You've actually got a little something there.
In mint condition, it retails for around $25-$50.
This site has two for sale at $50 each.
No scratches, I hope.
If you sell it at a record store, they'll only give you $10-$15 for it. But you might fetch more if you sell it yourself. Or just keep it a while longer.
I think Beck brought a jazz-like sense to rock and roll, which was unusual at the time.
And, honestly, who's good is always a matter of personal taste. I'd rather have a tooth extracted than listen to Jimi Hendrix, but to some people he's the greatest guitarist ever.
