I'm pleased you enjoyed the songs but your review is confusing. I think what you were trying to say is "King's (electric) guitar playing was too often average." You used words like "impressive" regarding the acoustic guitar playing. Words like "interesting" and "hypnotic" to describe the acoustic guitar work in new original songs.
If you were expecting me to elevate on electric guitar, you are right, I didn't cut loose and crank it up. But if you think my guitar playing average then I wonder what you would say about Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan or Hubert Sumlin's guitar playing. The star of the performance was the songs and stories. The music was supporting. I don't know if you noticed but big fast electric guitar solos are so 80's. Are the Black Key's and White Strips guitar playing average too?
I almost never respond to reviews but I don't really know how to react to someone saying my guitar playing is average. Its a first to my knowledge. Average compared to who? The blues is about feeling and emotion not flash and technic.
The audience were wonderful and we had a great time with them. We're looking forward to seeing them again. Maybe next time you and I can find a little bar someplace after hours that will let us turn up our amps and take turns playing 30 minute solos until the sun comes up. But again, thats so 80's.
