    There are no guys that make me want to put my guitar(s) down... never have been, never will be. Always the opposite.

    I can't watch Clapton. Makes it look too easy.

    Basically every guitarist working at a bar in downtown Nashville on a weekday.

    There was one guy in particular at Robert’s western world (I think) A couple of years ago who did some of the coolest polyrhythmic stuff. Seemed to crack the space time continuum. Didn’t catch his name. Couldn’t pick him out of a lineup. Shook his hand and heaped praises on him as I was walking out though.

    Nobody. I play for my own enjoyment, and don't concern myself with how much better than me everyone else is. I'm too busy trying to be better than I was, as my own playing often frustrates me.

    I will say that Bill Frisell is underappreciated for his sheer musicality. Saw him live once, and he played a large number of jazz standards that night. It was on either Someday My Prince Will Come or Somewhere Over The Rainbow that he did something I seldom hear anyone do. He played chorus after chorus and he NEVER lost the melody. Yeah, he re-worked it 10,000 different ways, turned it upside down and inside out, but he never, ever lost the melody. It was astonishing.

    I was just watching that vid of Dave Edmunds watching Albert Lee go nuts on "Sweet Little Lisa" last week. The whole "Born Fighters" doc about Rockpile from 1979 is great. One of my fave in-studio docs. Not many have made better music than Edmunds and Lowe (not to mention Billy Bremner) were making back then.
