    Pops Staples


    I've been listening to a lot of Pops recently, and trying to get a sound and feel close to his, but I overplay it. Simple sounding, but powerful, electrifying playing.

    I'm glad I read all the posts before posting my favourite(s) because they're already all here.

    The one that isn't posted is... me. Jaw-dropping in the sense of "what the heck is he doing with that guitar?" rather than "Wow! Can he play!". There's more than one reason a person's jaw might drop! :confused:

    I just wonder is this list better than Rolling Stone magazine's or any other rag's "list of 500 greatest guitarists of all time" with the same guys at the top? Or was this just an exercise to learn how many folks could not follow directions to list "one at a time"?

    While I admire the superior talent of many of the guys mentioned I am not always a fan of their music, especially those whose "music" seems to be merely a vehicle to showcase their skills. I am more of a song guy myself. As for the skills guys, the ones I admire the most are the ones who can sit and play a piece all by themselves and it sounds like a coherent song and not just a bunch of hot rod noodling.

    Since I have not added anything, and since there are very few ladies mentioned, I'll go with Molly Tuttle. Besides, she sings very nicely too.
