Extremely interesting. Simple, easy to understand and as precious as can be.
And now, for those of you who have always wondered why Powerage sounded different even in terms of notes played by Angus, reason is the Angus used the diminished scale a lot there.
Here’s Carlton about diminished scale:

Carlton is a god and good blues player..terrific player.
But In my opinion Carlton and Ford and other big players have exployed the “fashion” of the blues/revival of the 80s with their immense technical.
They Are a scholar of blues ,Not bluesman.
It is Not a criticism.

These videos doesn´t work for me, maybe because I´m using Opera. Anyway, these must be the youtube links (TrueFireTV):

My favourite Angus solo right now must be “Up to my neck in you”. Just endless rockn roll licks it seems, but it´s so melodic and none of them sounds like the typical “run of the mill”. Even sounds original compared to Angus himself.
Also, you clearly hear his rhythm guitar stop in the right channel, as he switches to lead. It sounds like his rhythm and lead playing is one continuous take, but that may not be the case.

Larry Carlton is a great guitar player, listen to “Josie”, such a simple yet highly effective tune!

Yeah, I’ve always admired the Powerage solos, especially “Sin City”.
Carlton’s a great player, when i first saw this, it blew me away: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqie9Q1qAuE
Sounds a bit ‘dated’, but I think it’s awesome.

I always thought Angus was just mixing minor and major penta not other scales

True in general, in fact; but no so on Powerage, much more dramatic sounding in solos
