It would be nice if we could have a chat about some serious guitar players without everybody jumping in screaming about Satch, Vai, & that knuckle-head from Metalicca.
I've been trying to find some new stuff to listen to, but nobodys really grabbed my attention over the years, so I end up listening to the same players over & over, I need some suggestions. Here's the guys I've been listening to a lot over the years, any suggestions:
Robben Ford....Phish....Indigenous...SRV...Larry Carlton
Pat Metheny...Hendrix...Jimmy Bruno...Pat Martino
Frank Gamble is mister sweep picker! that should be,
his last name!I got into frank back in 77 from reading,
plus takeing Guitar Magazine since the early 70s or,
late 60s .Without guys like him kirk ect would have never heard,of sweep picking,and a lot of so called sweepers.
Last i heard of him he had a web page up here,
He was also doing his recordings thro steve vai's studio.
That was this year.Frank gamble is a Fusion Wizard.
And yes i'm talking about the (crossroads=steve vai)
Frank gamble is a master of speed plus has some books,
out on speed picking this year.
He still tours every year mainly out of the country,
I would say mister vai learnt alot from Frank G.
Frank still lives in (Australia) Frank gamble can do,
alot of wammy bar licks with just his fingers.
Really Chris i could,nt name all the guitarists i've,
studied the list would be to long.I will say one thing,
you've been listening to some great guitarists.
I can name a few besides Frank just a few!
Kenny burrell,wes montgomry,in the jazz field.
plus countless others in all fields including (Metal)
My son got me into metal when he took up guitar,
plus i have alot of students now that want everything,
from New country,blues,jazz,rockabilly,southern rock,
Hard rock,Metal, and the list goes on.
By the way Frank started playing guitar the same,
year i started 1961.
On suggestions who to listen to i try to listen to,
all of them if i can.(which is hard to do anymore)
Luckly i have my son to keep me up on the metal stuff.
We do have a little cutting heads get to gather ,
every now then thats fun to do in blues.
