Duh, this guy . . . AND he's hard to kill.
I recall back in the ‘70s being surprised by TV entertainers like Jim Stafford who had chops to burn in the Jerry Reed/Glen Campbell/Roy Clark/Charo vein.
And Martin Mull
It put a lot of my then heroes into perspective.
Kidding aside, Don Dokken was actually a really good guitarist back in the day:
He’s astonishingly great at everything he does.... and he’s the only guitarist I’ve seen who plays a Yamaha Mike Stern (other than Mike himself).
Just about everybody that never gets mentioned on this forum on a regular basis.
Todd Park Mohr.
Prince. Obviously guitar players know, but If I had a dollar for every time I explained what a great player he was to more casual music fans, I'd buy one of those new Schecter Clouds.
As much as it pains me to say this - Adam Levine of Maroon 5
Hunter Hayes. Kid’s a monster.
I got them fat old white guy yuppie bllllueees......yessah!
That is true.
I was surprised by Adam Levine.
On a frikin' nylon string with a super wide neck......THAT kind of playing on THAT style guitar! Wow!
Mr Farris is a Bad mo-fo. Interesting story you might not have heard: Steve was playing for Rod Steward's Band and had a lay-over in L.A. He got a call from Rod saying, "Jeff's in town, want's to do some recording, but he doesn't have a guitar". Steve hauls down to the studio(he's a BIG Jeff fan like us as well!) and it is Steve Farris' Valley Arts guitar that Jeff Beck used to record "People get ready". That was from a podcast with Friedman, and some other guy maybe somebody can link....
Beck's first time playing a Floyd Rose....
Jeff Carlisi gets all of the accolades, but Don Barnes' playing on .38 Special's records was equally as important.
Mostly known for his singing, songwriting and his rhythm guitar playing but, Glenn Frey could play very well.
on a side note... Barry Gibb's percussive acoustic strumming was the basis for every single one of the Bee Gee song's rhythms.
I was going to add him. I got to see Maroon 5 a few years back and was impressed with how good the whole band was.
