    10 years ago, that statement would have earned you my enduring scorn but I've backed away from that view over the years - I'm not as militantly pro-Clapton as I used to be. I still think he's a great guitar player, but now I really like his work with other great artists like his work with Cream, Blind Faith, and Derek and the Dominos.

    As far as favorite guitarists? I would have to say mine is Hendrix. He was just so innovative and so technically proficient. I don't listen to him nearly as much as I used to, but every time I put on Machine Gun it just blows my mind.

    Derek and the Dominos' Layla is one of my favorite blues rock albums. "Bell Bottom Blues" is probably my all time favorite Clapton song.

    In terms of favorite guitarists, I gotta say Hendrix, Chet Atkins, Danny Gatton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Unfortunately I'll never see any of them play because they are all um... living impaired.

    I think Doyle Dykes is hands-down the best living guitarist. I've seen him play a couple of times and his technical proficiency is unreal, but his music is still incredibly soulful. If you are a fan of fingerstyle guitar (like Chet Atkins, Les Paul, etc), you owe it to yourself to check him out. Here's a little youtube sample.
    Process and dismissal. Shelter and location. Everybody wants somewhere.

    He doesn't have as much name recognition as Beck, Clapton, etc., but I think that Derek Trucks (Allman Bros., Derek Trucks Band, Govt Mule) is right up there too.

    Raputa The Buta

    OK, here's the set-up.....the TV airways are filled with advertisements for movies that are opening this Thanksgiving weekend. Included is the kid's flick called Tangled, apparently loosely based on the Rapunzel story. Every time I see the commercial I am reminded of this classic tune, with the wild intro. Cyburbians near my age should remember it. Classic.

    Watching the late(s) Stevie Ray Vaughn and Albert King In Session on PBS from 1983. Damn, those guys were great! Need to watch all my SRV DVD and VHS again. Bass player is Gus Thornton, he's got great touch and time too.

    Agreed. NOw he's touring with Susan Tedeschi. I would love to see them. Trucks is an amazing guitarist. Another couple guitarists who don't have the name recognition but I think are great are Joe Bonamassa and Walter Trout

    So, on Fridays, I take the liberty of playing music in my office other than low-volume classical or smooth jazz... but I'm not sure the song that just popped up on my ipod shuffle playlist fits the government office environment: Bloodhound Gang's "The Bad Touch"

    All this talk about guitarists reminded me of this clip of Metallica and special guests performing "Train Kept a Rollin'" with 6 guitarists (Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Ronnie Wood, Joe Perry, Kirk Hammett, James Hetfield), 3 bassists (Jason Newsted, Robert Trujillo, and Flea), and 1 drummer (Lars Ulrich): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_JqJY5z0T8

    Ive been getting back into hendrix lately, and I have to say - his playing doesnt even compare to some of the better players of today. BUT -for his time he was so far ahead of anyone. Probably the most influential player of the last 40 years.

    Perhaps you spend too much time watching TV, sofa potato. May I suggest: reading a book, sitting in the hot tub, traveling to exotic places, washing your car, getting drunk on , cleaning your windows, or getting laid?

    I've never seen the commercial. But I live a sheltered life.
    Annoyingly insensitive

    Yes. Very annoying that they think "that's what the kids will like." It makes me miss SUV's winding through a rugged mountain range.

    As a child I used to have a Disney Christmas record. I haven't thought about that record for years. This morning I woke up singing one of the songs from it.

    I think you mean the Hyundai commercials with the somewhat hipster-looking people singing sappy Christmas songs. Yeah. I hate those.

    Remembering the commercial but not the product is always a clue to the effectiveness of the marketing campaign.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    If you haven't seen it already, you should check out the Wilco documentary of the same name.

    I play a mean version of that on the guitar

    I actually dig the song "Electric Feel" more. But they are both pretty rocking
