    Favorite guitarist....feedback

    O.K. guys, just wanna get some insight and maybe get turned on to some new music. What are your favorite guitar players and why? Favorite styles of music? Mine range from Clapton to Knopfler, Atkins, Parkening (excellent classical musician), to Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, and Larry Carlton. Vince Gill has been rising to the top of my list recently, since I saw him perform. Astounding guitar player.

    I'm pretty hot on Nick Drake right now. Good songwriter and deceptively simple guitar player. Mississippi John Hurt has long been a favorite. Sounds easy till you try to play it. If you are into Chet it should be pretty easy, though.
    Adrian Belew
    Danny Gatton
    the guy from Bebop Deluxe
    Bob Mould from Husker Du (I don't know how to put those little umlauts in )
    George Benson- the pressure cooker album has some of the most ripping jazz/bop guitar you have ever heard.
    Plus a hundred million others.

    Listen to Rick Whitehead. Live in Captivity Again. He will blow your mind. He is sort of local, he teaches at Shenandoah University in my town, but you can still buy his album on Amazon.

    I have a few guitar heroes that are unlikely bedfellows. They seem to fall into 2 categories, Blues based and progressive.

    Roy Buchanan is an absolutely killer blues player!! If you like Buddy Guy (like I do) check out Roy.

    I also dig Albert Collins and his twangy high pitched lead work.

    Then there is one of my absolute biggest influences, Alex Lifeson of Rush. He lives in the shadow of Geddy and Neil, but his body of work is incredible. Listen to Rush and focus on the guitar tracks. He does some great stuff!!

    Joe Satriani is always fun to listen to.

    And then theres Carlos Santana. Not the stuff you hear on the radio, but whats deeper into his catalog of work is really cool!!

    Big Sugar is a great modern blues group, headed by Gordie Johnson. Check'em out if you haven't had the pleasure yet. Great song writing.

    And if you can fing it, you need John Mayal "Jazz Blues fusion". Freddy Robinson is the guitar player...really amazing.
