Favorite Blues Guitarists

#1 Post by Fretboard Wizard » Tue Aug 24, 2004 2:40 pm

Hey fellows I was thinking about all my favorite blues guitarists, and I thought it would be interesting to see all of yours (please don't lock this Mikey...I'm sure this is not in a forum search). Mine are (in no particular order): SRV, Gary Moore, Albert King, Freddie King, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and Hubert Sumlin to name a few of my best.

SRV by miles. By taking a little bit from just about all of the other guitarists before him, he used his influences to develop a style that is essentially the pinnacle of the genre. How great is it to hear an Albert King-esque lick followed by some Wes Montgomery style octaves? :D

Fellows I saw one of Muddy Water's album covers, and he was tapping! The photo was of him with his picking hand not resting on the fretboard, but actually fretting a chord. It reminded me a lot of Stanley Jordan, but I had no idea that Muddy Waters tapped!

Hmmm....I wouldn't be so sure that he can't tap well, if he does, that is. Because back in his time Stanley Jordan was tapping (insanely, probably more insane than steve). I mean, Stanley Jordan was all about two hand tapping. His main axe I believe had a bass neck and a guitar neck, where he could tap on both necks simultaneously. He had all kinda cool guitars. I was just excited, because I had no idea that Muddy Waters tapped...he is strictly a blues man. I hope he does...! The picture is way too perfect, and it is him alright. His hand definitely wasn't just resting on the fretboard, he had to be tapping. Anyways, I hope he does. :shock:

I like Stevie Ray, Hubert Sumlin, JEFF BECK (his version of "Amazing Grace" actually does justice to the title), Albert King, Elmore James, Jimi Hendrix, and Slim Harpo. And Mick Taylor and Keith Richards. And Jimmy Page.
