Adrian Belew on State of Electric Guitar

Chicago Humanities Festival 2011



Just over a year ago, Adrian Belew performed and spoke at the Chicago Humanities Fest about the history and future of electric guitar. The clip above is actually #3 of 3 where he wraps up with a tune.

Clip #1 is another tune, while #2 is a one hour talk that delves into the ever evolving technology around electric guitar. And really, who better than Belew for this subject? Although mostly tailored for general public, I found it interesting enough to blog about. He demos some cool gear-- and since he's not doing it for a bunch of gear geeks, it's actually much more understandable. Belew also touches on his experiences with King Crimson and Frank Zappa.
