    The other night, I saw Derek Trucks live with the Tedeschi /Trucks Band. Imo, he is a fantastic guitarist.

    He reminded me of a bunch of different southern rock guitarists I have appreciated over the years. From Toy Caldwell to Duane Allman. A vein of guitar playing - to me - defined by playing clean softly yet gritty when digging in and a killer slide style.

    The only other current guitarist I know who fits in that realm is Joey Landreth.

    But I am sure there are more than a few guitarists I am unfamiliar with that fit the bill!


    What other guitar players are currently out there playing this style?

    Warren Haynes. Of course Warren, Trucks and the Allman brothers kinda knew each other.;)

    Sonny Landreth?
    I like Derek Trucks. Don't much care for the better half of the marriage, though....

    This is the 2nd time in a week that I've heard the name "Joey Landreth" mentioned. I'll have to check him out. Related to Sonny?

    2nd nomination for Warren Haynes. He and Trucks are both just fabulous players.

    I don't believe they are related, Sonny was born in Mississippi and I think has always lived in Louisiana, while Joey is pure Canadian through and through.

    Joey Landreth’s co guitarist Ariel Posen. Similar feel but different. Compliment each other very nicely while being close enough to play each other’s lines.

    EDIT: stop what you are doing right now and check out Joey Landreth if you haven’t already! His music as well his stuff with That Pedal Show is beyond enjoyable. My favourite is his video on harmonic tremolo with the TPS guys. Tone and playing is out of this world.

    +1 for Marcus.

    When I see these "discoveries" of Derek, I'm puzzled. To me this is kinda like "have you heard of this guy Abraham Lincoln? Amazing!"

    I think she's a wonderful vocalist. Her playing is not horrible but it doesn't contrast favorably with Derek's.

    I took your advice. Wow! Really nice and very impressive fingering technique behind the slide. Thanks!

    Joey Landreth, sample of his stuff I like - unfortunately, low quality audio.)

    Susan is an entertaining singer, IMO. Derek, is the guitarist of the band.
