    uhhhh ...wow

    Sure, I know some of his music, but his day and age were before my time. In a word ... wow. Specifically 1:30 to 1:50 and 3:05 to 3:25

    Somehow seeing it on video makes it stand out so much more.

    my buddy recently engaged a bunch of his music critic friends in a discussion about guitarists.

    he went so far as to state that Prince may be the greatest guitarist since Hendrix, based on this solo (and the fact that Prince is a pretty sick guitarist but most folks forget that since he rarely lets go on his recordings, but if you've ever seen him live...WOW!)

    Prince's solo kicks in around 3:30

    wow is right. Was all ready to toss some Roy Buchanon up, but that clip sorta blew away that idea...
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    Prince is def. an under-appreciated guitarist, but so is Mato Nanji and his shit speaks to me much more than Prince.

    That "While my Guitar Gently Weeps" solo sounds like Purple Rain.

    As has been discussed before - the greatest guitar player you've possibly never heard of was Danny Gatton. This guy was retarded.

    Prince

    Jimmy Hendrix truly has changed the landscape for guitarists of his day, and for many others long after he died. After Eric Clapton saw him for the first time in a New York Club, he didn't want to even pick up his guitar.

    Without trying to highjack this thread and take away some reverence from "uhhh.......wow", and his props to Jim, prince definitely brings some serious skills to the table.

    For any of you doubters out there, go rent "Purple Rain", watch it, try not to get too excited about the lake scene, and take in some of the best licks the 80's have ever produced. The guys a genius.

    Prince is actually very secretive about his guitar effects and modulations. Apparently he does not let anyone know what his effects set up actually is.

    Props to Dookey for bringing out Prince for the second time in a week on TGR. See "THIS IS IT !" 11-01-09. Thought I was on this one.
    What if "Alternative" energy wasn't so alternative ?

    Actually Buchanon's version of hey joe was always a fave. If you have that go ahead and toss it up. I for one would appreciate it.

    Come on now, that's just showing off. Jimi was definitely the man. Never has someone made that instrument as much as part of themselves as he could.


    That prince solo was sick!! Never heard that before. Who else was playing on stage? I think I recognized tom petty, but that's it.


    My favorite modern guitar player has gotta be John Mayer. Despite the pop star status, the guy can fucking play, doing sit-ins with the likes of BB King and Clapton. He's just so damn smooth!! And the two guys that back him up to make the Trio are fucking solid.

    I suppose I am..... or it just always amazes me the vast amount of stuff can be found on youtube. Thanks, it's been years since I heard that. Hey Joe (hendrix) has been my ringtone for a couple of years. It was Roy's version I first heard in my misspent youth I think.

    Speaking of youtube and guitars, I saw Richard last week, amazing show, dazzled by his guitar. Here he is warming up with a favorite

    If he plays your area, get a good seat and enjoy!

    I've always been amazed by Don Ross and how he gets so much more out of a guitar than many artists.



    I also like Tommy Emmanuel for his tone and precision. There's a ton of him on youtube
