    Phil is one of the most original guitar pickers I've heard in a long time. And those harmonics .... holy cow!




    Also ....duet with Peter Sprague (playing a double neck)

    Yep -- incredible player! The second video is a Novax fanned fret "harp" guitar; he's played that for years!

    I've never heard of Phil Degruy before today.

    He is one incredible guitar player - very creative!

    Thank you for posting that video for us!

    I think he must buy his pants where David Lindley shops.

    Lindley Pants would be a great name for a band!! You could sell Godawful pants as merch.

    Started as a very good classical player; he's now a fine composer with a great sense of humor, and an eclectic guitarist.

    For anyone who's interested, Shane Theriot just post a great episode of his Riff Raff podcast where he interviews Phil Degruy. Really amazing playing and conversation. Shane is a really good player. He toured with the Neville Brothers for ages and now plays with Hall and Oates. Some phenomenal solo records as well.
