Lindsay B, one of the most underrated guitarists of the classic rock era. He still can bring it, too.
Matt Knopfler of Dire Straits, another one of the best lead guitarists to come out of the of that 70's classic rock era. Note that he's also grippin' and rippin' with no pick.

^^ Lindsey Buckingham is such an enjoyable around package of talent. Fleetwood Mac Rumours - Now that's my idea of a Big Mac!

^ As for the Sultan of Swing himself, Mr. Mark Knopfler, definitely and underrated guitarist. He truly is a guitar virtuoso.

This video of Mark Knopfler and Chet Atkins may not be a good fit in such a rock-n-roll biased thread (and there are so many great rock videos with Mark Knopfler) but I love Chet Atkins too Heart so here it is anyways Tongue

That was really beautiful, thnx. The first song makes me think of lying in a hammock on a hot, lazy summer afternoon sipping on some lemonade, and what a beautiful rendition of Lennon's "Imagine" ... it got the "hairs standing up on my arms" seal of approval. Big Grin

My knowledge of music in America is limited to late '70s on because that's when my family arrived from the UK. I know even less of Country music beyond, Crystal Gayle, the Allman Brothers, and maybe the Eagles, so Chet Atkins is really not in my wheelhouse, but he blended so easily with Knopfler ....very nice Big Grin

Knopfler is underrated for someone who has such an instantly recognisable style, it is so easy to listen to, almost like a ballerina on strings the graceful way he delivers his songs.

His style, to me, is reminiscent of the '60's 'surfer music' guitar bands like The Shadows


Loved Knopfler's work on "Sultan's of Swing"


Another band which hit it big for one album with that same sound I loved was Fastball

Not sure if "Surfer Music" guitar is the proper way to describe that style, but I love it.

RE: Guitar Solos
George Thorogood, another blues/rock legend who emerged in the 70's, gripping and ripping the slide guitar without a pick or a slide ring. Fucking unreal!

RE: Guitar Solos
I love so many of the above and heard many of them live (although I heard Dicky betts with the Allaman brothers and he deserves a link of his own)

Here is one slightly different but really one of my favorites... more about how he grows a solo and the note play with the rythym and kinds surpises in syncopation. Believe it or not (or ala Walkin on heave ~ "they call me crazy, but.... " ) I hear some of these sorts of turns from haley ...

(I'm giving a eric clapton cover as an example to make it a bit more approachable - some people got strong biases thinking hippy not a blue-grass fusion)

don't give up on it right away.. his solo's grow upon what he sets up in the bars ahead.. doesn't reach till near its conclusion at 6:30..about 3 minutes from its beginning.

RE: Guitar Solos
^^ Love the post T-Man Big Grin I kind of thought that posting Chester here might be considered to be a little out of order (I was ½ expecting the gavel). And I totally agree... it really is a nice clip. I can't watch it much though because it makes me sad (I was born12/8/80, the day John Lennon Died, and I'm a total sap when listening to any of his tender compositions). But I do have a "makes me happy" album by Chet Atkins and Les Paul titled "Chester & Lester". It's in the top 10 of my all-time personal favorite records, so of course I'd highly recommend it to any guitar enthusiast.

And wow! "The Shadows", thanks for that one, I thought I had heard everything from the 60s thru the 80s (I inherited about three thousand vinyl records of classic rock from my dad). I had always thought of Dire Straits as a new and original sound, but apparently "The Shadows" could also be called "The Foreshadows".


FM: If you want to experience some "ripping and gripping the slide guitar" just slam down a 6er, crank your box a notch above max, and then click play:

RE: Guitar Solos
YES things to reply on I love Guitar shit LOL one thing Mr Flaskman I have to disagree with , and thAT Is Billy GIbson OF ZZ Top sniffs Drainpipes this is just my opinion I think ZZ TOP as a whole is number 10. I'll explain later as far as all the other guys Mark Koffler and Chet Atkins, Mark said in an interview that he gets a lot of this picking styles from Mr. Chet. I got some things on YouTube about the Allman Brothers and Dickey Betts all post them later. But for now the Mr. Dickey Betts a very schooled and skilled slide guitar player who demonstrates the long version of the pentatonic scale in Jessica, whipping post, and no way Chow for now .
PS I will try to get info on Betts and yes He needs his own page so does Duane Almond YES?
