I think what makes Adrian and Davey special as a tandem is their childhood bond. Adrian bought his first guitar from Dave and they played in a band together as teenagers. I love how each of them has such a distinct voice on guitar, but when they play harmony lines, it's seamless and they sound like one instrument.
IMO, no other guitar tandem in the history of rock comes close.
I agree 100%. They are so unique IMO. To this day, I still love to play along with Maiden songs. (I 90% play Adrian's parts, always liked his solos a little more, but love both of them).
So many of their songs are so amazing because of the 2 of them together.
Stephen Stills and Chris Hillman from Manassas. Hillmans not a well known name but those two together sounded great!
Fripp and Summers did a couple albums. Some of the cuts were very good even if this video is really bad.
Great call on Wishbone Ash.
DeGarmo and Wilton
Livgren and Williams
Paco and Tomatito
It's not rock music and I suspect that here they aren't very well known, but at least for their abilities as composers I seriously think that Garoto (Aníbal Augusto Sardinha) and Valzinho (Norival Carlos Teixeira) who played together in the same band for some year are the best I've ever heard.
Django Reinhardt and Pierre "Baro" Ferret
Joe Diorio and Mick Goodrick (but I'm not sure if I can count them, after all they just made an album together)
Duane Allman and Dickey Betts
Jeff Cotton and Bill Harkleroad
Bert Jansch and John Renbourn
James Hetfield and Dave Mustaine
Joe Perry and Brad Whitford
Keith Richards and Mick Taylor
Keith Richards and Ron Wood
Don Felder and Joe Walsh
Brian May and Brian May (and Brian May and Brian May)...
Jimmy Raney and Doug Raney
John McLaughlin and Carlos Santana
John Abercrombie and Ralph Towner
Pat Metheny and John Scofield
Herb Ellis and Joe Pass
Jim Hall and Pat Metheny
Duane Allman and Dicky Betts
Gossard & Mcready
Jim James & Carl Broemel
Ed O'Brien & Johnny Greenwood
Tom Petty & Mike Campbell
Not mentioned yet as far as I can see:
Glen Mercer and Bill Million (The Feelies)
Dean Wareham and Sean Eaton (Luna)
and from this century:
Andrew Savage and Austin Brown (Parquet Courts)
Paul and Bruce, Tommy and James. Neon guitars and jumpsuits.
Hunter and Wagner
Cipollina and Duncan
I was just about to post these two! (but it's Sean Eden)
2+ years and no A7X?
not the TGP kind of music but outrageous talents regardless
Neil Young /Frank "Poncho" Sampedro
thanks. i had the feeling i wasn't getting it right but was too lazy to look it up
My favorites in no particular order:
Chuck and Al - moe.
Marc Ford and Rich Robinson - TBC
Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir - GD
Michael Bruce and Glen Buxton - Alice Cooper
Angus and Malcolm Young - AC/DC
Stone Gossard and Mike McCready - PJ
Noel Gallagher and Gem Archer - Oasis
Jake Cinninger and Brendan Bayliss - Umphrey's McGee
Mick Taylor and Keith Richards - Stones
I based it on either both guitarist having serious chops or when the rhythm player adds something extremely unique to the band that is hard to replace (such as Malcolm and Bob).
