Favorite guitarist - Page 4

^^^ Weird. I know Brion's multi-talented but I still think of his piano work before guitar. I'm also not surprised to see Greenwood and Marr together in the same breath. They share a lot in common.

He's more known as a guitarist than piano as far as studio hire goes. Listen to those early Aimee Mann records. He's also done a ton of studio work as a guitarist on everything from Fiona Apple to Macy Grey. Also made a record with a band called the Greys that has some great guitar from Jason Falkner as well.
He has a great sense of country bends and melody but not so traditional.

That's weird because of the times I've seen him live he's usually on keys or playing with a bunch of pedals.

I'm assuming you're talking about his performances at Largo. I'm not saying he's better at one or the other, he's also a really good drummer. The piano stuff I've seen him do is mostly that ragtime style which is fine but I really fine him more exciting as a guitarists. I've met him a few times as we have some mutual friends. I'm told he's a little bored with guitar. Oh well.

Don't know about "better," but it's sublime, thank you.

Well, he's not on my personal top ten or anything, but Eddie's no slouch, and he raised the bar in some ways for a generation of rock guitarists (and fans.) So, I don't begrudge anyone loving him.

It's just personal taste in music. It seems that you like latin/flamenco/classical guitar while others prefer classic rock and whodini likes modern rock/alternative music. So I wouldn't say that anyone who likes Van Halen is to be shunned.

Anyways just over the weekend I found out that Slash does a song called obsession confession. This song I have been hearing on the local jazz station is not something I thought slash would be playing. Anyways great song.

John Mayer. I'm dead serious too. I would recommend his Try! album which is just a live compilation as a blues trio. I could listen to SRV forever, and Robin Trower for a while as well. Mayer's tone is particularly pleasing to my ears, however.
