Go out and buy a Paul DeLay album, he, in my opinion, is one of the best players around. He plays mostly diatonic, but also rips on the chromatic. There is a double album w/ Paulzilla and some other album (I cant remember the name) and there is some great chromatic playing in there.
: I'd like to put out an ABP for any reports of hot chromatic blues players. I'm way out of the loop, but figure they must exist. I'm not talkin' about hacks who hang out in the 2nd position & treat the button as though it were the trigger to a MIRVed warhead trained on an orphanage. Sure as hell, Toots kicks ass on (I think it's called) C-Jam Blues, I but I'd like to add some other stuff to my library. I play & love diatonic, but please save any posts re guys who play chromatic like a diatonic except that they wind up playing dissonant notes as chords tones 'cause they're just to GD lazy to relearn the thing. Lookin' for honest responses / leads & no offense...
