<In my relatives house in England, them's fightn' words!!!!
And a good songwriter?>
In my relatives houses in Northern Ireland, being English is more than enough reason for a fight. He wrote much of the Who's works. Today however, I think the hearing damage has made him inept.
<With regard to Steve Howe, there was once a little band out of the UK called
Perhaps you remember Starship Trooper?>
I bet you like Styx too. I am little bit more into stuff that has an edge to it. LAAAAAH AHHHHHH LA LA LA Just kidding....
<Btw....a guy who plays 200 notes a minute isn't necessarily good.
(Ref: "the edge") >
The edge is just sliding his hand up and down the neck instead of playing traditional chords. His name never enters my mind when I think of guitar players. I would not consider him a guitar player with dexterity by any means.
I agree, reference Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Gary Hoey from my original post. All blow the doors off anyone except maybe Satriani in terms of the sounds they can produce from a guitar, the speed and clarity of each note, yet most of their stuff is crap. Kind of like lipstick on a pig.
<With regard to jazz musicians, Doc Sevrenson and Woody Herman played a lot
Not always the right ones, tho...!>
My mom didn't let me stay up too late to listen to Doc. He had some cool jackets though. I know my Music Appreciation teacher in High School used to boast of Doc's ability to hit the high notes on the trumpet. I thought we were talking about great guitar players. The guitar players I have said are overrated or lousy still have sold lots of albums, toured the world, and made people happy with their limited talent.... I cannot say the same for myself . . . although I can reproduce there sounds when I play along. Unfortunately, engineering and my kids has made my time with my Les Paul almost non-existent for the past 4 years. Hopefully, I'll be back in the garage soon and having the neighbors call the police.
