I’ve been on a bit of guitar binge last week or two in terms of listening, managing to dig out some gems from the dark corners of spotify’s catalogue.
I’m aware there are plenty of accomplished guitarists on here, many doing interesting things combining their playing with technology in what could be considered a non-traditional way. So the point of this thread is introduce the music of a guitarist you listen to & admire. Old, new, experimental, traditional, famous, obscure - anything goes…
Hoping this will at least throw up some interesting listening recommendations focussed on noteworthy players, their art & technique. Probably getting ahead of myself here, but I’d also love to see a study group for transposing these players if the interest is there!
Check out trace Bundy. Amazing guitarist, and seems to genuinely love playing (even little tiny café’s in Glasgow!!).
Duelling ninjas - great song. I’m yet to learn the fast bit! But it feels awesome to get as far as that when I practice! https://youtu.be/XyY4LNkxOW0
I saw a set recently where he switched back and forth, and it was revelatory. if you are more into his acoustic stuff he did put out this all-nylon album recently, which i’d highly recommend. probably the album of his i listen to the most.
totally new to me, but digging ‘Mediation of Ecstatic Energy’! Much inspiration for what can be done with with live looping - guessing that’s the main technique or does this music exist mainly in a DAW?
Interesting picks - passing familiarity with some of these guys, or at least heard of almost all. Any particular albums/songs that would constitute essential listening or a good intro?
