From the same city as me.

Does anyone watch the cartoon? It's freakin' hilarious! Kind of raw and a little rude but very funny. Uh.....stupid funny. Yeah Sons of Butcher!

Don't think anybody has mentioned

PETER BUCK

or

BECK

or

RIVERS CUOMO

One chord is fine.
Two you're pushing it.
Three and you're into jazz.

Have to admit, I did not read the entire thread, so I hope I'm not repeating.

Two players that I think are WAAAAYYYYY under-rated are "Chad Kinchla" (Blues Traveler) and the guy from an old band called Blind Melon. Don't know his name and I'm too lazy to look it up.

IMO, both of these are very good guitarists.

Teamwork- A few harmless flakes working together can unleash an avalanche of destruction.

Either Christopher Thorn or Roger Stevens. I'm inquisitive and lazy. :)

I agree with Joey Santiago of the Pixies. Totally original in style, nobody but nobody plays like Joey.

Joey does not play regular scales or notes ever. He has the amazing ability to make the most dissonant and sour notes sound great. Very underrated.

If you know something better than Rock and Roll, I'd like to hear it - Jerry Lee Lewis

Rich Gilbert (saw him in Nashville at Robert's playing w/Travis Mann Band...an excellent guitarist and entertaining showman)

Johnny Hiland (saw him by chance at a music store promoting his new PRS sig model...legally blind and very down to earth, his versatility is amazing)

BTW...I also love Junior Brown, smokindog!

Love and Peace or Else,

+1 for Terry Kath of Chicago, Jimi Hendrix was reported to say that Terry was better than him.

James Taylor is pretty good too for being self-taught.

Also, the man who played with Jim Croche, Maury Mauritson, always amazed me!

David Lindley, both with Jackson Browne and James Taylor is one of the greatest multi-instrumentalists in the world.

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming......
like the passengers in his car.

Rickie Lee Jones
She writes some complex stuff. And she's an awesome guitarist

I don't know if anyone has mentioned him, but I'd add Dave Edmunds to the list.

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.
Did you know that the word "gullible" is not in any dictionary?
