Shawn Lane will always be my favorite guitarist and musician. I just finished school at Musicians Institute. I wish I could have been going to school there when he used to come and do clinics. Some of my teachers still would speak of the days when Shawn would walk in and blow the doors off the place with his insane speed. What an amzing person. I am also from Tennessee and I am going back to see his grave in a couple of months. My deepest prayers are with his family. God Bless Shawn Lane.
I think of Shawn and remember a little kid comming into the store with so much talent and I miss talking to him about music and all the other things that interested him. He was always so polite and well spoken. What a great guy. 😎
You were a legend and will always be. Forever rocking.
Shawn Lane was such a great musician, I enjoy his music immensely. If his music isn't playing on my itunes it's only because I'm practicing. Wishing the family the best, we all miss him greatly!
All I can say, in the most realistic sense, to Shawn and those who love his music and playing, is a profound "thanks" Peace - Robb Howell
Listening to Shawn is a big inspiration ! I wrote a song in tribute to him. On my myspace : http://www.myspace.com/fabricelacourt Thanks for listening ! Fabrice 🙂
amazing I have been a musician for 30 years drums guitar and bass...and I had not heard Shawn's music till today.....amazing is the only word for it....
For about a month now I've been on a diet of only listening to Shawn's recordings during my 40 minute commute to work. The more recordings I hear, the more I'm amazed with Shawn's improvisational ability each gig. It just flowed, and it flowed differently each night. I've played guitar for 35 years and have always hesitated to name a 'best' or 'favorite' guitarist, but no longer.
Just wanted to say that even after so many years later, I am very sorry for the loss of Shawn, I love his style of playing, and could tell he put everything into it, heart and soul! I am a guitar player & drummer myself, and my opinion, Shawn Lane is the very best guitar player I have ever watched or heard in this world..No one still out plays him! God Bless
I cant believe that it's been 10 years. I still watch the dvd he sent me.So many fond memories You are missed RIP Flash !!
I recently discovered Shawn's music, and it's been a revelation, to say the least. What an amazingly talented, wonderful man. His music has touched me in a profound way, and I look forward to uncovering more and more of his work. Rest in peace, Shawn.
Very nice guestbook friend... thanks
Listening to Lane is a great inspiration. He had a magical technique and spirit. Thank you!
I just discovered Shawn Lane's music, it's amazing. He's a genius. Long live Shawn.
I love his music it not only has ushered in a new sense of discipline to my own practice time but has brought a sense of what real passion in music sounds like. Im never going to run out of appreciation for his music, or his talent. Thank you for having this available.
BIGGGGG!!! SHAWN LANE...THE KING!
I want to sign again..I will always remember shawn lane and his incredible music.. silence on the set..keep rollin'..3..2..1..leds and gents..mr. shawn lane is here creating music for us..thnx shawn..
I'm listening more and more. I'm also searching youtube and other sites to see more. If anyone has more material from Shawn's impressive catalogue, please make it available for the general public. Coincidence with the last name?
I get goosebums everytime i listen to Shawn`s music!! Especially Epilogue For Lisa! Where can i find backing track for this solo?? Rest in peace!
I love Shawn's music so much I can't describe it, but discovering him was similar to discovering Jimi Hendrix, Alan Holdsworth, Jaco Pastorius and John Coltrane-life changing. I met 2 good guitarists who were both into some very good musicians in the past 2 days. Neither one had heard of Shawn, so I sat them down and had them watch the 11 minute version of "Aga of the Ladies" currently on youtube. Now 2 more lives have been improved, and I feel like I did something worthwhile. Nobody who is sensitive to musical greatness can be the same after hearing Shawn. The inspiration I get from him is huge, and the loving words of his family and friends make me wish I had the honor of knowing him. He was one of a kind, and I will never stop listening and being grateful for his giant gift to the world. Thank you to Shawn for his greatness, and thank you to his family for giving all of us fans a chance to express how much he means to us.
