    Coincidentally, I'm watching John Fogerty live at Glastonbury in 2007 at the moment.

    That's right -- a taped lived performance. The things I have to explain to people...

    Every part Fogerty plays is integral to the song

    +1 on mike campbell, is so very tasteful, never overplays and is always right for the song.

    Listening to John Fogerty (Centerfield) right now. My absolute fave singer / songwriter / guitarist.
    Must also agree on Mike Campbell and Robbie Robertson. Taste and feel trumps technique every time for me.

    Lots of love here

    Probably not just my favorite JF licks, but maybe some of my all time favorite … ok, it’s a video (staged), but it’s still cool … at 1:16 you can see he’s got it going on



    This is my # 2 CCR tune



    please forgive the slightly off topic digression

    Although I was just a cartage guy in LA in the 80’s, I have some friends that literally saw it all

    One of these guys, told me … and I forget if he described it as peak life or ???

    He just dug CCR big time as kid

    Anyway, he’s out (on tour/roadie) with Mr. Fogerty, … I think 90’s .. . they rented a car somewhere in Texas, because JF wanted to check out some guitar shops … so they pull up to a light, and my friend looks in the rear view mirror and there's JF just sitting there smiling …

    Also, I believe I read that when JF got to be 50, he wanted to become a really good guitar player

    I'd go with Lindsay Buckingham, really don't hear his name mentioned amongst the better guitar players. I'd also put Terry Clements on that list, Gordon's late guitarist.

    My wife ran into him at a mall in the San Fernando Valley about 15 years back.

    For someone who's been listening to soul/r&b for more than 45 years (like myself), these names ought to be carved in stone!

    A couple of underrated pickers from favorite bands of mine are Gene Cornish (The Rascals) and Zal Yanovsky (The Lovin' Spoonful).

    A lot of the players mentioned within this thread are definitely rated, surely!

    Good to see Bobby Womack mentioned - definitely overlooked as a guitar player.

    Billy Bremner (played with Dave Edmunds / Rockpile) is an often overlooked British guitar player.

    I always liked Bram Tchaikovsky too.

    I'm not sure if he's underated or not. The guy can actually play the guitar really well. Even now as old as he is he get's up there and is doing the rythm and the leads and singing at the sametime that's tough to do.

    John Fogerty has always been one of my musical heroes. Very tasteful guitar player. His singing voice however has gone downhill faster as he has gotten older than any one else I can remember. McCartney and Seger for the most part still sound the same, Fogerty's voice went up about an octave and he lost his distinctive growl. Bob Dylan's voice got real bad, but singing was never a strong part of his performance anyway.

    Fogerty's distinctive growl came from smoking like a chimney back in his prime. Somewhere after CCR, he quit and his voice has gotten thinner and reedier since. Of course, being in his 60s now probably has something to do with it too.
