Stevie Salas is a great funky bluesy player.
Stevie Salas - The Grooveline:
I always really enjoyed the way Elliott Smith played, particularly in electric guitar. Underrated.
Also want to +1 whoever brought up Nashville session dudes. Nameless but humble and all killer players.
There's also a guy named Mike Mogis. He's played with tons of indie bands like Bright Eyes and Rilo Kiley. He plays everything but is a really great and subtle guitar player.
I apologize if this is a repeat, but I'm gonna say Terry Kath. Skip to 2:58 if you're not a fan:
Just stumbled on this young guy. Had an album out 5 years ago, which Frampton (over) produced, and nothing else since.
Thanks, Mr. Lumberg. I have watched that video many times and it's just as incredible every time. That solo is just off the charts. I loved Terry Kath...CTA was the first album I bought with my own money. It was already about 5 years old by then but worth every penny. The Kath-era Chicago was so good; Cetera was a rocker then, too.
The late great Shawn Lane is one of my favorite guitarists and quite possibly one of the most underrated, least known guitarists of his time.
This guy definitely has some chops, and he likes eerie textures -- I've been looking at some other live vids of him on Youtube. Lots of echo. But I'm surprised he's not better known.
There's a guy in Jackson, TN named Chuck McGill. Incredible talent, electric, acoustic, steel, sax - probably more and excels at each. Mulligan's every Friday night. No relation to him (just friends) or the bar, but if you're in the area check him out. Band is called Bandstand Review.
He is superb.
Agreed man, their old stuff is great. So many good songs. Cetera did actually rock back in the day, but then took Chicago on the path of love ballads, got rid of the horn section for the most part... That isn't Chicago. They'd probably still be real rockers if Kath hadn't killed himself. It's a shame.
Matt Rae. I had the good fortune to be in Connecticut at our relatives' house for Thanksgiving and caught a lesson with Matt. Plays like a madman (as you can see from this video) and is one heckuva nice guy, to boot. He even let me play through his vintage Vibrolux (sweet!)
Lightnin' Alley: Root Boy Slim`s lead guitarist. Listen to Three cool cats. Don`t forget Root Boy`S - INFLATABLE DoLL, MOTEL OF love, 'She wants to move in .....
This is tough on because the really obscure players are hard to track down,,,, even with google! I think most the best obscure players are playing backup for bigger names.
For instance, I saw a G3 show and Mike Keneally put down the keys and played guitar with Vai on a few songs. That guy was at a G3 level. There are a few other shows with headline names that had great backup players.
A lot of them mentioned so far are semi-obscure
