    Guthrie Trapp: (Known affectionally on the local scene as one of the "guitar assassins") Amazing player that is both musical and with chops that just blow your mind...

    J.D. Simo: (Hybrid flat picker that has amzing versatiity, speed, feel and chops)

    What's cool about all these cats is that they are just damn fine human beings. Humble, down to earth. Just great folks.

    Check 'em out live if you ever get the chance you won't regret or forget the experience...

    Man am I jealous,-love to meet any of those guys in person.

    I've been toying with the idea of skipping mexico this year and going to Nashville
    for a week instead.

    I saw Guthrie a couple of years ago in Jerry Douglas' band. No one should be that accomplished on both acoustic and electric guitar.

    The skill level in that Jerry Douglas band was/is just ridiculous.

    +1 for Greg V and Josh Smith-they are also TGP brothers. Greg V's Tailgate Troubador is a beautiful sounding CD with such amazing composition and gorgeous guitar tone. I wish Greg would do another solo album soon. Josh is a great guy, great player, fellow gear hound and always willing to share gear secrets.

    I'll bump this thread with this comment: I saw JD Simo in Greg V.'s new Reinhardt demo. That guy is amazing!

    And of course, one of the greatest guitarists on the planet IMHO, Brent Mason.

    Whoa-ah. Just watching the Trapp video! Killer bass player there too.

    Is that the studio cat that was recently touring with Vince Gill (the bass player)?

    Not feeling Trapp's Tele tone but his playing is outrageous.

    caught JD last year amazing amazing player. Made me get GAS for a BF Deluxe Reverb.

    Another great player not a session player but he has a band called Just Plain Trouble they play at Layla's Bluegrass Inn a lot.

    The singer/lead guitarist Tom Buller is awesome. Great singer and great picker!

    Hey LavaMan... Thanks for your kind words... I don't really claim to be a "Nashville Session man" .. I do live here and do some sessions ... There's plenty of these guys mentioned here that are just that! badass session cats. I'm just a working guitar man ... And happy with it.. Peace, Lou Toomey
