I feel like Dave Edmunds watching him. Those crazy Brits and their love for American roots music.
Eric Johnson, Tuck Andress, Lenny Breau, Django Reinhardt, and Ted Greene all make me feel more like a guitar owner than a guitar player.
Rick McCrae...every time
none. instead, they inspire me.
i'd like to ask how many people actually give up guitar after seeing a great player? you may know that you won't be that good, but to give up. i'd answer none.
Nice guy, too!
Richard Henshall, Wes Thrailkill and Guthrie Govan. They are from another planet.
Robbin Ford, Steve Morse, yep Guthrie Govan. Yeesh.
Really is. Some years back I was fortunate to have shared the stage with him (and Floyd Domino, Mark Lowe, Ricky Boen) for an evening. I stood 3 ft away, watching, and to this day have no idea how he did what he did.
YEAH ! Makes me want to play .
The only guys who have made me put my guitar down are the drama queens in about half the bands I've been in.
What gets me is seeing little kids tear it up. I'm happy for them, but it can make you want to sale your wares.
I'll chime in....
Off the top of my head:
Tommy Emmanuel...Frank Vignola...Vinny Raniolo...Ian Bairnson (Alan Parsons Project)...klasaine....Dale (Tonedr)
My typical personal levity response.....they make me want to relegate my guitars to 'kindling'.
I've held off thus far with that thought and I just keep plugging along at 72.
I put down my guitar when I was 13....then I took it up again the year after. Why should other people make me want to quit something that gives me so much?
Roy Buchanan, Jeff Beck, Ray Flacke, Django, Charlie Christian, Jim Campilongo... I could go on...
seeing negative approach made me want to practice more. they were transcendent the last time i saw them and were somehow channeling the stooges and gauze at the same time.
Different people at different ends of the playing spectrum, although they don't truly make me want to give it up.
Danny Gatton. There's just no way I can make my brain and hands do that stuff.
Freddie King. I think "Well, even I could do that!" I can't.
Jimmie Vaughn. Groove, feel, timing, without an extraneous note. I can't replicate it.
I saw Jeff Beck up close and after the show, I never touched a guitar for a week. Tommy Emmanuel has the same effect, I have seen him 3 times, jaw dropping talent.
I’m convinced Tommy Emmanuel is from another planet.
