I'm a guitar player for most of my life. But only now decades after I started I'm waking up and realizing the importance of guys like Chet and Les Paul. They were masters of the instrument. I am a rock and roll music die-hard but I'm starting to see it as being responsible for the devolution of guitar playing. Rock dumbed down the vocabulary of the guitar, and I think post-Hendrix it became a lot about tone, feeling, and impressionism. Let's face it, rock music is primarily about vocal expression, I think. Most people talk about guitar gods, it's Hendrix and Jimmy Page. But their music is as much if not more about the verse-chorus song form, and vocal and lyrical ideas. A lot of what guitar provides in that music is style and ornamentation. When it comes to the craft of guitar playing, it's basically all gone downhill since the days of Chet Atkins.

If makes you feel any better I am largely in the dark here as well. What can you do, the Furrman's part of the indie rock hipster cognoscenti.

Beef's right I am listening to a lot of hipster indie stuff (which is supposed to be 'unknown' I guess -- except that I'm just now finding out about a lot of it way late, and I'm probably too old to be lingering around the scene of this kind of music, but F it).

But not all of it is - Culture were a influential mid 70's UK reggae band. Buffalo Springfield was Neil Young's early group ....

An old friend I knew for a short while in the mid 90's has just released her first solo record. I'm going to see her and her regular band next week in Austin.

This is one of my all-time favorite tracks, from one of the greatest guitar players of all time. When I'm listening to music on my ipod or phone on shuffle and this track comes on, I usually have to stop what I'm doing and dig the whole thing. (Usually replay it at least once too) It blows my mind--on a regular basis. Everyone knows that Robert Johnson was a maestro of the highest order, and "Preachin Blues" in my mind is the finest example of his supernatural abilities. This is a goddamned pinnacle of guitar playing. It was recorded in the 30s, and yet is light years ahead of everything that came after it, musicologically speaking. (Eric Clapton, for all his supposed devotion to Robert Johnson, is probably closer to Miley Cyrus on the spectrum of musical coolness than he is to Johnson sadly.) It's not just the mastery of the instrument, it's also the songwriting, arrangement, use of dynamics, not to mention the spine-chilling vocal performance.



I must've missed this. My college buddies and I had the complete Robert Johnson recordings. I particularly loved...

Good to see some of my contemporaries enjoying seminal 20th century blues.

All y'all gonna hate this I bet. Some kind of remix/alt version of a long time favorite deep album track.

Like it a lot. Added the album to my playlist.

Also loved the Make the Road by Walking track.

I also really enjoyed the Chet Atkins/Les Paul.

That album is amazing, and frightening. There are some disturbing scary sounds and bizarre lyrics going on. Like murder ballad style, but creepier and shadowed. Fantastic. Puts me in a Blue Velvet mood.
