    Who do you prefer, Marc Ford or Nels Kline? I'm well aware that they are different players; just trying to settle a debate. What do you think?

    There's more basement bloozers on this site than indie hipsters, so expect more people to say Marc Ford.

    Its pretty "apples and oranges" with those two guys. Its kind of like asking, "what do you like more, fish or candybars?"

    Yep. They are very different players. This is just a preference question. For what it's worth, I think Cline would be the fish.

    That's like asking "do you prefer sex with the wife, or sex with one of the wife's girlfriends?" They're both great in different ways.

    Cline. good blues based rock players are a dime a dozen. Not to say Ford is bad, he's extremely good, it's just very idiomatic. Cline take it someplace else and I like that

    True, good blues players are a dime a dozen. But dissonant indy noodlers are about 12 cents a dozen these days; very soon they'll be a dime too.

    So, we're going with the premise that MF is a "blues player," now? The solo on "Sometimes Salvation" alone is enough to secure his legend.

    Nels Cline is fantastic, too...Never realized Wilco was an "indie" group til now, either.

    What, exactly, are you "debating?" Both make great music, enjoy it.

    There are bootlegs around of members of the Crowes and Wilco jamming...they did some shows together years ago. That was before Cline joined (and when Ford was in the Crowes the first time), granted, but to hear some folks around here tell it, you'd think Wilco is some flavor of the week hipster band.

    That's OK, they've just recently discovered what some of us have known for 15+ years now.

    Love both players and both bands. There's no hating going on here. Just a discussion.

    Both are fine musicians. About half if what Nelson does is too out for my taste, the other half is quite enjoyable.

    I agree completely with this statement. I disagree that Nels Cline is one of said dissonant indie noodlers.
