Nice age gap
Your two first choices were mine, but I couldn't think of a young popular innovator... I was tempted to say Dave Grohl or Frusciante because they are intriguing and different, but on second thought, they are too old to be kids
Then I thought Slash meets all the conditions except I'm not so sure he is an innovator though...
Can we change the thread title to "who are your 3 favorite guitar players?"
Make it 3 generations from Strat-Talk:
Eddie Van Halen
Howe certainly wasn't overlooked in the late 70's to early 80's though. He used to win the Guitar Player Mag's Guitarist of the Year on a regular basis.
Good list, those three.
We already got the letters.
And my self.
sorry to ruin the surprise
One of these three just doesn't belong...
Google works as an amazing spell checker.
at least your video would have guitar playing in it, the one i would be in would be nothing but a bunch of hens sitting around a table clucking away with guitars in the corner of the room. kinda like "between two ferns" but the ferns will be guitars
LOL. I'm thinking Sevy will have a paper with -> printed on it that he holds up before he speaks
I picture mine being me asking those guys how they came up with all their great original music. What are they going to ask me?
TSims: Say, how did you play that cover of Day Tripper?
Mouse: Easy, let me show you. Daaa, da dum da doo...crap, hold on...Daaa, da doo da ddaadaa...damn it, one sec...Daaa, da da da da...son of a...I swear I know this one.
Nope! Three current S-T dudes, three generations - Tony has rock 'n roll guitar nailed, David is The MAN for prog guitar and has been gigging for decades and YOU can really motor, and think outside your comfort zone, which anyone can see in your challenge vids.
OOOHHH yes, Thats a good trio there. Im really starting to like Mayer, always loved Nancy, And the work Mike Campbell did on the "MOJO" Album was unreal.
Wasnt worried about the spelling , Im sure everybody on this forum knows these names, however there spelled. Ile work on that.. LOL
Jeff Beck– the grizzled wizard of guitar who has been at it for 40+ years, explored an incredible variety of genres, never stops refining his approach, and to this day hasn't lost his edge.
Slash– revered as a God of the Les Paul by the masses, he's been to the top of the mountain and keeps on jammin'. The milieu may benefit from an injection of the ethos of rock n' roll excess.
Derek Trucks– grew up as a guitar prodigy and breaths music as life itself. Seems to be very humble and spiritual in a "oneness" sort of way. Obviously a phenomenal musician, I would love to hear him mix it up with Beck.
I think these guys could share some very interesting anecdotal as well as musical exchanges.
Honestly, the last It Might Get Loud was 33% good, that was Jimmy Page, the other two are in no way "great" so I don't see them making another one that would be better. Although the concept was good, they botched it.
"I view the strat like an acoustic instrument. It's up to you to get the sounds" Y.J.M.
I agree that Jimmy Page was great in this movie, but Jack White and The Edge were at least interesting, and I am in no way a big fan of either one of those guys.
If you look at it from a subjective point of view: Jack White has a huge following, he's interesting (some call it "weird"), he has an incredibly unique style, and he's very passionate about what he does and blues music. The Edge has an interesting story because he plays in one of the biggest rock bands of all time - even if he's not the greatest guitar player of all time. The stories behind each of these guys are very interesting whether you like them or not. I loved the movie and wish there would be more music/guitar related documentaries out there.
All the reason to make another, better one.
Each player should have a different style and sound, and must have one quality that defines their music.
These guys are well suited for it. They still play live, have a large following and a separate style. Gilmour uses effects like crazy. Lifeson uses them very sparingly, and Johnson uses a full setup of different amps and totally different effects for all his sounds.
Gilmour uses a Strat
Lifeson uses everything, including Hentor Sportscasters (HSS Strats).
Johnson plays Strats live but records with many different instruments.
Amps... Gilmour uses Hiwatts, Lifeson uses H&Ks (Switchblade is his preference now I think), and EJ uses Marshalls and Fenders.
I remember, he won 5 times in a row and was retired to the "Gallery of Greats"
None of the young players even know who he is any more.
David Gilmour, EVH and Dave Grohl.
