Buddy Miller. He plays in an ensemble as well as anyone. There can be a lot of wildly varying instruments on stage, and he will find a space and do something interesting.
Buddy Whittington basically plays everything I want to play, much better than I do.
Funny as my last name is Bettencourt
His unassuming, savant-like demeanor, his lazy, soaring style, and bludgeoning volume made a big impression on me. And he did it at a time when 10 minute guitar solos couldn't have been any less cool. He simply played what he wanted and didn't give a damn. Still does.
I've been a fan for fifty years.
... Or Les Paul !
His playing speaks to me in a way no one else does
Nick Drake, for his precision, sensitivity, and intuition, and for the way he smacked those dead strings like a hammer but still made fragile and ethereal music.
I could easily list a half dozen or more players....
But if I can only list one, it is Mark Knopfler for the emotion and finesse.
Wes or Django.
(and right close behind... Gatton)
It's Derek.The man's musical vocabulary is boundless.I've got my guitar
in my hand right now trying to learn something from the other night.
It's not just the soaring stuff,it's the in between stuff on the low strings and down in the middle of the neck.Somethin' about it.
