Two of my favorites ever!
I'm getting a bit of a 10cc fix at the moment and realising that Eric Stewart was way ahead many of his more lauded contemporaries, as well as being from my tiny area of Manchester and sharing a fantastic luthier...
the perfect 8 bar guitar solo, and he doesn't play in bars 1 or 8! Starts about 1:35
Country rock? check:
Canadian blues-Rock guitarist Colin James has long been a favorite of mine...
Hayden Nicholas from Clint Black's band. I got his first record for my 7th birthday so those were the first guitar parts I remember hearing.
Rick McRae from George Strait's band.
John Sykes from Blue Murder and Whitesnake. He has a killer vibrato.
Good question. I'd hazard a guess that guitar players like other guitar players who improvise. Page seems to work out his solos ahead of time. He also will comp a solo together after several improvised takes. This is very much my own personal take on things, so maybe most people don't feel the same way that I do about improvising. There are other majorly good guitarists who don't improvise much, as far as I have heard. Chet Atkins being the best of this type.
Back to Page. His solos on record are really, really good. They contribute to a song in much the same way that Harrison's solos do.
Ditto. My band plays Hoochie Coo Chickie, which is a blast.
I'm not sure that's the reason (if indeed, Page doesn't get discussed much at all). David Gilmour is well-known for doing both these things too, but he is frequently talked about by guitarists (rightly!).
Bit of a paradox, Jimmy Page - it is often said that his playing is "sloppy", yet, as a former in-demand session guitarist with all the musical discipline that role demands, you would think his playing would be absolutely textbook.
I'm thinking the "sloppiness" comes from certain substances though.
But Page is certainly discussed on a weekly basis around here ... ? At least his "Dragon" Tele ...
Yes, I'm sure all that excess will have taken its toll!
Also, I agree, I don't think I've noticed a lack of discussion about Page anywhere.
Jamie West-Oram of The Fixx.
Jake E Lee. The guitar work on the Badlands albums is great. I love his twist on Fogerty's Green River in this song. The slide solo at the end of Whiskey Dust is one of my favorites.
Pretty sure the original "no one talks about Jimmy Page" comment was a joke (rather obviously).
havejust been watching some Linda Ronstadt videos, and I came up with one-[ Waddy Wachtel
This! Badlands was a really nice record.
