Captain Beefheart’s 10 commandments of guitar playing


I wasn’t a huge fan of Captain Beefheart back in those days, but I listen to his music lately and am often reminded of the Power Cave. Anyway, I like his 10 commandments: http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2009/03/captain-beefhearts-10-commandments-of-guitar-playing.html

    THANKS man! that was wonderful, I even read the comments. He was also wonderfully raw and powerful on the blues harp. Zappa also wouldn’t play with people unless the music was written down and played correctly. Kind-of blows the stack.
