Jim is so wildly individual, it's hard to compare him with any other guitar player. But unless you're speaking only of contemporary players, Hendrix was by-enlarge an instrumentalist. Not that he didn't also write lyrics or interpret lyrics from great song writers, but what made him also wildly individual was his mind, hands and a Strat. Jim C. mixes old classics with his fiercely individual interpretations and quirky techniques. But then, playing with ones teeth is pretty quirky too.Is there any stratocaster player out there along the lines of jim, writing instrumentals?
Of course he did, my badI'm guessing the OP is asking if anyone out there is making instrumental music like Campilongo, using a Strat instead of a Tele.
It's weird, as there is a tradition of instrumental Tele bangers that Campilongo is definately part of...but I can't think of a contemporary Strat example this morning. I mean, back in the heyday of instrumental guitar, there were lots of guys playing Strats.
I dig Buddy Merrill quite a bit.
