Hi!

I just want your impressions of a musician called Shawn Lane; he is very obscure outside the guitar community. Aside from being a guitar-player, he also played and composed on the piano, so I figured it would be interesting to see how the piano community would perceive him.

Here are some of my personal favorites:

His only piano-based compositions:

The rest is pretty much noodling and improvising, which he is good at (IMO) anyway.

In my mind with no significant musical depth or understanding, I find his stuff very interesting.

Don't worry, I'm not one of those silly people resorting to name calling or personal attacks if someone doesn't happen to agree with me smile As I said, I'm just curious whether you like it or not considering his obscurity outside his fanbase(that is guitar-based).
