G.E Smith and Steve Cropper. They ain't stars, just solid players that make the music IMHO.
I have a great appreciation for guitarists that play/record unforgettable, simple parts.
Reggie Young, Steve Cropper, James Burton, Cornell Dupree, and Louie Shelton.
Their contributions to the songs they played on are absolutely essential, IMO.
Nice! You like who you like. And I see nothing to dislike in your post. Solid choices.
This will sound self contradictory but you have to be a great player to play simple.
I always worried about that guy in the song, "...I won't quit 'til I'm a star, 'cause I can play this here guitar..."- the world in general really isn't looking for guitar heroes. Cropper is really pretty famous, though.
How could I leave out James Burton Not familiar with the others. Would love it if you have the time to educate me.
Not at all. I believe what you leave out is more musical than adding notes just because they are on the fret board.
You are without a doubt a great player.
2 great iconic ones!!
Wanting to be a star is OK I guess, but still value the ones that have nothing to prove. They just make music.
I just listen to the music but don’t pay much attention to who’s playing.
He’s got his own signature Hot Rod Deluxe. I think he did alright for himself.
GE Smith had a huge impact on me when I started out. During high school Comedy Central would play snl and Conan reruns pretty much at the exact time I’d get home from school and it was always great to see the GE smith and Jimmy Vivino play great stuff on cool guitars
Two excellent musicians with 100 year music careers between them. What’s not to like?
who's toured as hired guns for decades with big time acts? That's right , these reliable wax on, wax off, pros
I have purchased so many items to teach me how to play better. My guitar buddy just said its 3 frets then 2 then three and whatever else comes without thinking. Very good player. He plays a lot faster than me, but told me the other day he loved my phrasing. Nice of him. A work buddy in the hospital that we worked in said I could hang. We were playing Maggie may with him on the mandolin. They are both better players than myself, so I consider what they said as high praise. Up the street from me lives a guy that it was between him and Ronnie Wood to join the Stones. Keith Richards called him Mr. Guitar. But he ain't skinny and doesn't look like a Stone. His name is Wayne Perkins if you have time to Utube him. Best player I ever heard and had the privledge to hear him at a club Ii went to every Thursday night to drink and chase girls. Do not regret it but on wife #4 and she is the one that will give me a shot to see God. Bet he hands me a Telecaster. I had every Friday off from Clinicals. After coffee I hit the round neck Dobro. My life is a gift.
I'm not bored with your selection at all. Those guys are both what I aspire to be as a player. I have seen both of them live and they are both the real deal.
Who, Barry Mann? You mean he's not still wandering Broadway with his guitar?
Danny Gatton, Roy Buchanan, Bill Kirchen, Clarence White and Redd Volkaert to name a few more.
I assure you that a hack can play simple parts.
