  1. TIM REYNOLDS - Arguably the greatest acoustic guitarist I've ever heard. Pretty much just listen to the Live at Luther College album with Dave Matthews and him, especially "Tripping Billies"; "Ants Marching"; "Seek Up" There is of course also all of his solo work. "Stream" is basically a guitar solo with no rhythm guitarist and therefore rhythm guitar mixed into it. Stream is on Live at Luther College. Also listen to "Turn It Into Love" and "Kundalini Bonfire"
  2. Great male voices - Dave Matthews (Dave Matthews Band) Travis Morrison (The Dismemberment Plan) Tom Yorke (Radiohead)
  3. I've said this before and I'll say it again. The way to judge a guitarist: ingenuity, sound (how good and how unique), speed, and delivery. I therefore nominate Trey Anastasio (Phish). Does anyone else in the world sound like Trey? No. No one can imitate the sound that comes out of his guitar--the only other person who I can really think of who is similar on that level is Jimi--and listen to "Weekapauge Groove" (preferrably live) to hear what I am talking about. Trey's innovativeness in writing is quite well exemplified in many songs but one to take a look at are "Guyute" and "You Enjoy Myself". As for speed and delivery, "RUN LIKE AN ANTELOPE" (in my opinion, the jam in that song is the epitome of jamming). Also, for a little bit of all the great elements, especially sound and delivery, a wonderful song to listen to is a live version of "Divided Sky". In addition, keep in mind that virtually none of Trey's solos are in one key, that he can somehow hear the seemingly random notes his bassist and pianist (Mike and Page, respectively) are playing while simultaneously playing perfect correlating notes. It's quite impressive. Finally, I'm not saying Trey is THE greatest, just one of them. Also take a look at Tim Reynolds(acoustic masterman)--not just for what he does with Dave Matthews but on his own "Turn it Into Love," "Kundalini Bonfire," "You are My Sanity," and "Stream." Al Schnier and Chuck Garvey (Moe.) also have amazing talent. Try listening to Meat (a great version is from their L live album). to see their talent (as well as their bassist's). Jake Cinninger and Brendan Bayliss (Umphrey's Mcgee) are constantly improving wonderments of the guitar. Listen to "Nothin Too Fancy" by Umphrey's McGee to see.
  4. CARTER BEUFORD of The Dave Matthews Band! Listen to #36 (Live at Red Rocks version); Tripping Billies; Two Step (Listener Supported version); Lie in Our Graves; or better yet, go to a DMB concert to see where I'm coming from.
  5. Great singing voices (males): Tom Yorke: Radiohead Dave Matthews: The Dave Matthews Band Travis Morrison: The Dismemberment Plan
  6. My favorite guitarists (are all ridiculously good): Trey Anastastio (in my opinion one of the greatest guitarists ever) of Phish; Al Schnier of Moe.; Jake Cinninger of Umphrey's McGee; and Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead.
  7. I am just interested to see what other people think of Trey Anastasio (the guitarist of Phish). I'll re-post my opinion of him and my justification for why I think he is so astoundingly good: The way to judge a guitarist: ingenuity, sound (how good and how unique), speed, and delivery. Does anyone else in the world sound like Trey? No. No one can imitate the sound that comes out of his guitar-- the only other person who I can really think of who is similar on that level is Jimi--and listen to "Weekapauge Groove" (preferrably live) to hear what I am talking about. Trey's innovativeness in writing is quite well exemplified in many songs but one to take a look at is Guyute. As for speed and delivery, "RUN LIKE AN ANTELOPE" (in my opinion, the jam in that song is the epitome of jamming). Also, for a little bit of all the great elements, especially sound and delivery, a wonderful song to listen to is a live version of Divided Sky. In addition, keep in mind that virtually none of Trey's solos are in one key, that he can somehow hear the seemingly random notes his bassist and pianist (Mike and Page, respectively) are playing while simultaneously playing perfect correlating notes. It's quite impressive. Finally, I'm not saying Trey is THE greatest, just one of them. So, if you haven't heard him, give him a try. Otherwise I'd just like to here what people think since I never seem to get responses about the musical aspect of my posts that are within another person's subject (it was unnecessary of me to refer to the use of a word that didn't exist when obviously everyone knew what was intended to be communicated).
  8. I'm not quite so sure on how exactly popular they are at this point, but Umphrey's McGee is amazing. They are a Jam Band originally from South Bend, IN, who now live in Chicago and tour around various small venues in the United States. I, of course, have seen them in South Bend (they went to high school and college only several blocks away from me, and even lived next to my piano teacher. They continue to return once or twice a year for a show). They have astounding talent and writing ability. Take a peek at "Uncle Wally" ; "Miss Tinkles Overture" ; "Nothin Too Fancy" and "Fussy Dutchman" ("Front Porch" also--its their 'pop' song, but catchy and I like it). Go to Umphrey's McGee's Website.
