    Then you should listen to some more country players. While he's excellent, he doesn't have that certain something that guys like Vince Gill, Scotty Anderson or Brent Mason do.
    There's a difference between playing country and being a country player.

    I'm sorry I wasn't clear. I meant guys I personally know. I know a few pretty decent guitarists and multi-instrumentalists in my area. None are John 5, Vince Gill, or Brent Mason good.

    When you get into these kind of comments it seems more like people are not looking at skill but whether the player being discussed plays your favored genre and/or dresses like other artists in that genre and talks like them and otherwise follows the "rules". John 5 = too many tattoos, wears makeup, doesn't talk with a Texas drawl, doesn't write songs with the stereotypical country themes... maybe too much for people to get past in looking at whether or not he's a great player?

    I love it when heavily distorted shred meets country and classical music.

    Oh, yeah, that's likely a significant difference. Although we have guys around here that are that good, just not nationally known.
