    Songs in open G that aren't Stones songs

    No, just woefully ignorant. Exhibit A: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/1287206

    Songs in open G that aren't Stones songs

    Sounds like someone hasn't listened to much country...

    Nope, it's in standard tuning, key of E, played with a capo on the 2d fret.

    Just guitar and drums?

    Before the Black Keys and the White Stripes (mid 80s until their breakup around 2000) there was the original guitar + drums rock'n'roll duo: The Flat Duo Jets.

    Chicago Blues Fans - Guitarist Trivia

    I remember seeing Otis on two consecutive nights in the early 90s and it was unbelievable how different the two shows were. He seemed pretty indifferent the first night, but the second night he just looked miserable and depressed. Played like his pants were on fire both nights, but it almost...

    Wayne Bennett was a monster player...too bad he recorded very little under his own name, which is probably why he doesn't get the recognition he deserves. That's one guy I wish I could have seen on stage.

    He was an influence to some players...but I was going by the OP's description: It is almost obligatory to cite this guitar player as an "influence" - I just don't hear him mentioned as an influence that often. No denying he was a great player, I would put him in the "underrated" category...

    Hahaha good point...although I think Otis could be REALLY smooth sometimes... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_ecjwJpcRk ...same goes for Hubert... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0MIQHymToA ...but I guess "smooth" is a pretty subjective term. EVERYONE sounds "smooth" to me compared...

    Hey, don't get me wrong - I dig his playing and I am glad I got to see him live before he passed...but it's a name I really don't hear mentioned very often, let alone named as an influence. I don't think he gets nearly the credit he deserves. Then again, neither does Little Milton, or Lowell...

    Hmmm....I am no expert on British stuff, but Eddie Taylor was "The Jimmy Reed Sound" and quite a few 60s British bands covered Jimmy Reed's tunes.

    It's "almost obligatory" to cite Fenton as an influence? Great player, but I hear him name-dropped even less than Sammy Lawhorn!

    Agree 100%. He's pretty smokin' on that Eddie Taylor Live At Antone's record, too.

    The guy who really needs more credit than he ever got, in my personal opinion, would be Eddie Taylor. My favorite, along with Lockwood and Louis Myers. Going to amend my list once again: 1 Eddie Taylor 2 Hubert Sumlin or Otis Rush? 3 Robert Lockwood Jr 4 Hound Dog Taylor 5 Jimmy Johnson
