    Amen. The really great musicians have an economy and spareness in their technique that nevertheless communicates some really complicated musical ideas. We've all heard musicians that fell into the "more notes faster MUST be better, right?" trap.

    I don't what it is about J.J. Cale's music, but I always end up grinning while I listen to him.

    Reminds me of a story I heard about Jeff "Skunk" Baxter when he was at his peak as a studio guitarist, He was hired by a producer to come in and add his "magic" to a song. Jeff listened, said it didn't need anything he could add and left, with full pay for what could have been a two hour session.
