If I can inherit the survival genes too
This is it right here. Mike Campbell is the man.
Gary Richrath - his ability to effortlessly move up and down the neck and play such killer riffs and look so damn confident doing it. Plus he wrote some terrific songs.
I want people to STARE at me. So, Derek Bailey.
Bang I'm dead, couldn't choose just one.
Electric guitar playing 1. Jeff Beck 2. Chet Atkins 3. well there's a lot that of folks that could fill the third slot, but I'm guessing I would choose Eric Clapton (there yeah go; I said it: Eric Clapton, I love those British Blues.)
Voice, lyrics tie between Vince Gill, Keith Urban, George Jones and Brad Paisley.
Probably Junior Brown.
Nels Cline or Brian Setzer if I were cooler.
Been on a Los Lobos kick as I’m seeing them this weekend, so I’m going with David Hidalgo.
++ thank you, yes please
I think Lenny Breau.
But there are so many greats, especially the ones I've never heard of yet!
Do I get credit for their songs? John Lennon. Or George Harrison.
Pure guitar talent? Satriani or Eric Johnson
Quirky perfection? Robert Smith or Jonny Greenwood or Johnny Marr.
Frisco Darling is a master of the jug... but since we’re talking guitar (I gues). Lotta awesome and inspirational players listed. Cray, Haynes, Cooder, Buchanan, Buddy Miller (tone, phrasing, playing to the song).... but if I had to pick *one*.... no reflection on any others listed, but it’s easy for me...
I am blessed in that I don't need to inherit his genes, since we already share them.
My younger brother Stacey is the guitarist and musician whose genes I most appreciate having.
Stacey is a musician and multi-instrumental band-mate without peer. He's a born bass player, drummer, guitar player, keyboard player and singer with a natural gift of ear, and that knack for always falling right in with the right note, the right vocal harmonies, and the right hook.
We were in a garage band together in the mid-1970's, we have made music together on and off over many decades, and we've been steady band-mates for nine years now, and still going strong.
In our band he mostly plays bass, but on a variety of songs he'll switch over to guitar or get behind the drum kit, and it's always tight and spot-on.
I am indeed blessed in that I have just a fraction of his natural talent for playing guitar and other instruments, and a good deal of his genetic ability to sing with other performers and find that just-right vocal harmony that fits.
Anyway, I'm gonna shut up now.
Don't want to jinx a lifetime of making great music with the brother I love.
Well played, Sir!
He always and truly terrifies me, for some reason.
Yeah Ild be a mutt
