It’s almost like Albert King was Slowhand’s personal manager...
Absolutely no question on my part ... George Harrison.
I just repurchased the All Thing Must Pass box set on vinyl. What an amazing collection of music!
I would also nominate Jon Herington - the current featured guitarist of Steely Dan (and has been with them since the turn of the century). To tour with this band and have to recreate those memorable guitar riffs.. from the likes of Denny Dias, Skunk Baxter, Larry Carlton, Rick Derringer, Walter Becker and so many others... I've seen him a few times now and delight in watching him effortlessly work his way through their catalog.
I've seen Neil a few times over the years now and really enjoyed him last time I saw him at Farm Aid with Willie Nelson's son's band (Promise of the Real) backing him. I had heard they were going to tour this year to support a new album they dropped earlier this year but haven't seen anything come of it yet. Neil coaxes some interesting stuff out of his old LP... fun to watch him play too.
I like Neil Young. But then again, many of my favorite guitar players aren't technicians, they simply play with a lot of heart.
I feel that Pat Travers should have had a bigger level of notoriety.
Mike Campbell and George Harrison rarely make those lists of “best guitarists”...I don’t understand why. If you think the guitar part is there to be add a unique, memorable, integral part to the song...these two are hard to beat.
john mcgeoch, maurice deebank, dean ween
I don't play their style but Tony Rice and Bryan Sutton
We've had the Bolin conversation before, so you know what I think of him. I do wonder if the "he replaced ......" gives him a bum rap though. Between the James Gang, Deep Purple, Zephyr, Cobham and the 2 solo albums, they gave us some wonderful glimpses of the guitarist he was truly capable of being.
I was watching a clip of 25 or 6 to 4 live from 1970...Kath was a freaking monster. I know he was working toward a solo record when he passed, now we're left to forever wonder what might have been and IMO Chicago never really regained what was lost with his death. If you've not seen the Terry Kath Experience, yet, you really should. It's an awesome look at his life and his daughter's quest to know her dad better and her hunt in finding Terry's Tele.
I just read about the Kath docu in an issue of Vintage Guitar from last year. I will have to check that out.
Kath doc is great
If you have ever tried to really play songs like Old Man correctly, you would have to agree. His ability to embellish chords & to use his right hand to add to the vibe while strumming - top shelf
Dean Parks - He can play just about anything (electric or acoustic) & James Taylor recently hired him to play acoustic guitar on his tour because James had an injury and could not play guitar (but thankfully could sing)
