Anyway, I went to the bookstore next door and was floored.

The Kurt Rosenwinkel composition book?
Unreal. I'll be woodshedding big time when I get home to my guitar.
I am going to email Ben (who appeared at CSUB in 2005) when I learn one song - maybe Sleep - which seems to be able to be played by mere mortals.
This guy is crazy good and there isn't a more original sounding guitarist alive in my opinion. His concert at CSUB is up on YouTube. The sound isn't great, but it's some of the only Monder available and it is amazing.
Here was the spread of Fake Books. Too cool:
Yeah, we all need to move here. Now.
