Ed Driscoll

Learning From The Masters

Many people come to me, and they ask, “Ed, how can you, such a reserved, conservative looking guy, actually know how to play guitar”.

And I tell them.

It is because of the many years I’ve spent practicing with that ancient mystic from the far east…Mr. Fastfinger!

Incidentally, can’t you just hear Don Black and John Barry writing his theme song?

Fastfinger, he’s the man, the man with Steve’s Vai’s touch
A shredder’s touch!
Such a fast finger beckons you to enter his web of sin
But don’t go in

Blazing notes he will pour in your ear
But his riffs can’t disguise what you fear
For a Fender Strat knows when he’s touched her
It’s the kiss of death from Mister…

Fastfinger!

Or something like that…
