Ah, the semi-annual 10 favorite guitarists survey. You're late, Frank, this should have been up last week.

I'll post mine later.

I'm afraid to actually make a list, they always seem to die after I start to like them(except for the English dudes who seem to have nine lives), I hope I haven't cursed Warren...

I think I'm just gonna use Kenny's list this time...
..If you can't beat em, join em. Right ODR?

Frank, we need a new top 10 like flute players or something.

He's not in my Top 10. I look at it from a standpoint of influence, being a player myself, and, like Zakk Wylde once told me, it's "F&%@G cheesy to be influenced by your peers"...

I think Derek will definitely be regarded as an influential performer, if he isn't viewed as such yet. And, cheesy to be influenced by one's peers? I would disagree. Why should that matter? And why wait until late in someone's career or until they have passed away to recognize them? Now I'm not old enough to remember Duane, but if someone asked for a top 10 list in 1969 or 1970 would he have been excluded due to his age? I do recall not hearing as much about Stevie Ray until he passed, which I think is a shame.

You aren't following me, Lee... I mean that have influenced ME!

I choose not to be influenced by my peers, since it's my belief that Derek and I, although not on the same statosphere, are "in competition" in taking what has come before and turning it into something new...

Hence, why he's not on the list. If the list were "10 most skilled players" or "10 best players", he'd be there without a doubt...

I will also say that as many guitar afficianados as there are on this site, I'm always amazed that I can't get any "Stefan Grossman" discussion going.

And Lee, that's a shame about SRV - I thought that guy started making waves from the moment Couldn't Stand the Weather was released - Radio Play, MTV Videos, TV Award Shows, blues club acts covering his tunes, he played a bunch of festivals . . . I thought he had plenty of exposure . . .

One of my favorite TV moments to reflect on is him and George Thorogood jamming together on some awards show or other . . . I sure wish I could track down that footage.

Hey Randy, E. Clapton is not in your list, yeah, I know, you forgot. Please go back and make the correction.

E. Clapton? Duane's back-up guitar player on Layla? Is that who you're talking about?

I actually have two Eric Clapton CD's: Unplugged, which I bought for the standards, a few of which my band played at the time (Nobody knows you, Alberta/Corrina, San Francisco Bay, etc.), and From the Cradle, which makes a nice coaster when I'm having company (my drink always sits on Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, Alone and Acoustic).

I'm just kidding, my Honduran friend. I like Clapton just fine, and I like many other guitarists - but if you read my opening remarks, you'll see I said these are the guitarists I'm listening too most right now. The Zep, Clapton, SRV, Luther Allison, Thorogood, and Floyd discs (some of my other favorites) are taking a breather.

No order after Duane

Duane
Dickey
Derek
Gatton
Roy B
Wes
Lowell
Django
Metheny
McGloughlin
Jimi
Jimmy
Chet
Eric Johnson
Scotty Anderson
SRV and Jimmy V.

Texas Flood exploded on the scene (at least the scene I was in) and made a huge impression. We had been totally into Jimmy Vaughn for years at that point, had no clue he had a little brother that played so incredibly. I think that was in 1983, something like that....Stevie brought the blues back into fashion, singlehandedly (well, he used both his hands....LOL)

I see that coaster comment TopDroog....I truly feel for you that you can't get into what could possibly be the greatest acoustic blues album in the last 15 years....

Oh, here's sort of my standard top guitarist list:

Duane
Dickey
Derek
Jerry
Ronnie Baker Brooks
TopDroog
Warren
Buddy Guy

Gotcha Frank.

Still, I wonder if sometimes people aren't appreciated until later in their careers or after their deaths. Randy, I agree about SRV. Seems like it became "cool" to be a fan of his after he died which was too bad. I was lucky enough to catch him shortly before his death.

Does anyone recall if Duane was recognized for his greatness prior to his death?

Goliath, Scotty Anderson, (wake up to this cats folks) finally has a new album coming out.http://www.jcurverecords.com/, I will also be covering the CD release concert here in his home town of Cincy.

Unfortunetely Danny Gatton is gone, but Scotty is there to take up the slack. Great guitarist for sure. He is another one of those guys that if he applied himself in a forward fashion would be blowing a whole lot of guitarists away that folks think are the bomb. Glad you mentioned him dave.

Derek H

Scotty Anderson is monsterish....I am glad he is finally gettin out an album. As far as I know, he only plays in Cincinatti, Macon, and clinics....If you ever get a chance, go see him.

You've foiled your own argument if you think even I can play better than Buddy Guy.

He is an excellent lead guitar play and band leader, and Junior Wells is an excellent harp player and singer. They just didn't "bring it" to those sessions. It's like the producer came in and said, "okay boys, we're ready to start, but I want you to remember: mediocrity is what we're shooting for here. If you feel the soul start to build, switch gears, think of something else. We don't want this music to distinguish itself in any way. Straight, by the book, 1st grade blues."

I'd really like you to point out some spots on that album that you think are exceptional. I'm just not hearing it.

Of course you're not hearing it....you have to lift the drink off the cd and actually place it in the cd player (the cd, not the drink)....hit play, lay down on the couch, close your eyes and listen....heh


I'll tell you what, I'll go home tonight and give it a good listen again and give you an update
