Very Good - However

I like the presentation however I would have like to have seen one more rendition of the lick in a slower fashion or motion then I would be good to go! So basically there would have been 3 renditions (1 original 2 slow 3 slower still) - that's all I'm saying.

An unsung guitar hero from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he grew up just a few miles from the Waukesha birthplace of the late, great guitarist-inventor Les Paul, Greg Koch has established himself within six-string circles as a masterful technician, accomplished clinician (for Fender) and general bad-ass guit-picker. No less than guitar virtuoso Steve Vai noted Koch’s six-string prowess and promptly signed him to his Favored Nations label in 2001. Tom Wheeler from Guitar Player magazine hailed him as “fiendishly talented” while other critics have called him everything from “a twisted guitar genius” to “the best kept secret in the guitar firmament.” A multiple award-winning string manipulator, he divides his time between international clinic tours, writing, recording and performing in Greg Koch and the Tone Controls (featured in this series). To sum it all up, “Imagine Chet and Hendrix meeting the Kings (Albert, Freddie, BB) at the first annual 'Zeppelin/Holdsworth Coffee Guzzler's Hoedown” - Guitar Player Magazine
