Jimmy page, jeff beck and Keith Richards
If i do include esquier players so has the tele players well Luther Perkins, Muddy Water, Albert Collins, Jeff Beck, Roy Buchanon, Waylon Jennings, Merle Hagard there so many influence
Brad Paisely. I came to the party late but this thread has been educational, every 3 post and I'm over to youtube.
Don Rich! Waylon! Dale Watson! LUTHER!!!!
Jeff Buckley, Kelly Jones from Stereophonics, and actually seeing Chris Cornell playing one on SNL back in the 90's might've been the first time I really wanted a Tele. I thought he looked so cool with it! (though I don't listen to a lot of Soundgarden) There are tons of bands I listen to now that use them, most notably Aereogramme/The Unwinding Hours from Scotland.
Frisell, his lyricism and sense of space changed my playing for the better and softened my taste in music a little so that I can listen to and really appreciate a tender melody without feeling like a sissy. I like other tele players, pretty much all the ones listed in this thread, but Frisell carved out this peculiar little island for himself that my ears really dig on.
when he was using those schecter telecasters. saw the who in 1979 (and a bunch of times after). unfortunately, post-keith moon.
Change my "life"? a guitar player?.... I doubt it..... whatever they played....
I've always just listened to/enjoyed music... mostly not caring two hoots who they were or what they played..... or wanting their gear...
if I'd have sat around trying to be one of the hundreds of guitar players I've heard... I wouldn't have got out and about world wide and did the things in life that I did....
now I'm happy to sit back and play my guitars... like Me...... how dull is that?...
Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys _thick freakness era
and John 5
Keef - he's the one who made me want to pick up a guitar.
In order best I recall.
James Burton, behind Ricky Nelson on TV and records.
Hello Mary Lou kaplunk a plunk... yea.
Waylon.. behind nobody, saw him live first time in '64 at JD's.
Nobody ever did it like Waylon
This and a 1/2 pint of Jack and you're good to go.
Buck and Don... same way about the same time.
Spent several years ignoring rock and enjoying twang
Steven Stills and the evolution to CSN&Y by 1970.
and then the dawn breaks
Clarence White and all that entails, followed until I realized.. same GREAt player in several bands... duh? IR a slow learner.
Late bloomer for me and briefly, Danny Gatton and then back one step earlier to Roy
Roy kinda' ends it... I mean where is there better? before or after. Nowhere.
James Burton, And Clarence White are the top two who made me really listen when I was starting out.
Not that I can think of ...
But first it was The King's Lead Man - Mr. Burton - and his paisley Teles....then the Boss. Liking the Tele has opened my ears to others - like Brad Paisley and Keith Urban - both of those guys have chops (IMHO).
+1 same here
