    i hope this is gonna be fun for all of you :)

    This is the STRAT-TALK - Stratocaster achievement award 2019 Edition - this post is reserved for entries.


    Rules :

    - Make a post, the first entry MUST be the name of the nominee in bold ( will be easier to sort out things later )
    - one artist per post !!
    - you may add a picture or video
    - you can nominee more than one player, but you can nominee one artist once.
    - you can discuss but we like to keep it "light", like commenting why you feel this artist should be nominated, but without exceeding 200 characters or so.
    - in the case that the winning entry is assign posthumously, we'll try to get a hold of the family if possible.


    At the end of the year we will get a Nice Certificate expressing the admiration of this forum which we think is a nice nice way of saying "Thank You" for all the inspiration.

    So let's begin :)

    CHARLY BLISS

    Although this song was technically released in 2018, hopefully it can slip into the 2019 achievement category, as 2019 is only 3 months of achievements.

    I nominate Charly Bliss as this band proves that kids are still rocking on real guitars, and have not forgot the almighty hook.


    Charly Bliss - Percolator


    Come on, baby, get me high
    There's always something new to buy
    I cry all the time, I think that it's cool
    I'm in touch with my feelings

    I have always loved the door
    But I will always love you more
    I love metaphors, swimming in your pool

    I am pregnant with meaning
    Could I be more appealing
    Writing slurs on the ceiling?
    Come on, baby, you're bleeding

    I'm gonna die in a getaway car
    I haven't tried, but it sounds too hard.

    I'm not scared to lick the floor
    'Cause I have sucked on something worse
    Straight from the adored, myself over yours?
    C'mon, baby, keep dreaming

    Don't you know I aim to please?
    I'm everybody's favorite tease
    Put your hand on my knee, that's what friends are for

    Well, I think I'm still breathing
    While my parents are sleeping
    I am sick, but I'm speaking
    My boyfriend is freaking
    My conscious is ducked and my judgment is leaking

    I'm gonna die in a getaway car
    I haven't tried, but it sounds too hard
    All of my friends never understand
    You say that I make you feel like a man

    Eddie Van Halen for not only his playing but his innovations to the Strat style guitar.

    Another vote for BUDDY GUY - last of the Chicago Bluesmen still standing... and a hell of a player.

    Two Feet

    Two Feet hit the ground running in 2018 with their huge hit "I Feel Like I'm Drowning"

    Great Strat tone and delivery.

    dogletnoir.

    Others have accolades and awards up to their noses. dogletnoir is one of the most prolific artists anywhere, and is always worth listening to. No one IMO is more deserving. No one. :D
