...any one guitar player.
What guitar player do you choose?
I would choose Hendrix.
But, then again, I think I have a nice mental jukebox so I wouldn't worry about it.
Ask me again tomorrow and it'll be someone different.
Blackmore probably no. 2 for me...
Jake E Lee
Gilmour, probably. Skunk Baxter a close second.
Well yea, I agree. But I can't really tell which of his lines are ad-lib "solos", and which are actual melody lines. If I meant 'solo guitar' instead of ad-lib solos (which I didn't make clear, sorry), I'd take Metheny I think.
That man is a genius. His writing and his playing. They are too closely intertwined to separate, I think.
Some really interesting answers. Wow.
I wouldn't choose music for the guitar solos period. I would need something intellectually stimulating, complete music that is well written and arranged and cleverly produced.
I suppose I could spend an eternity just listening to the Moody Blues classic 7 albums for that reason.
Joe Bonnamassa...his hard driving style would keep my energy flowing, while I sang the blues in my head.
Randy Rhoads.....for a back up I would pick Angus, he may not be the technical lead but he sure can entertain.
.....followed closely by Leslie West and The Rev Billy G
Well, if I could only pick one if would have to be
how we gettin electricity out there ? I'd hate to bring my ipod out there for nothin . . .
yep .... you never know what he's going to come up with!
Hmm, I would have to choose whoever plays the longest solos. I believe that would be Jerry Garcia. I would probably choose the cd Grey Folded, as it is different versions of Dark Star one after the next, and it comes off like one really long guitar solo jam.
