When I hear it, I long to be able to do it. Not just the music, but the emotion it carries. It must be jealousy, really. I’ve tried to play before, and I can’t. It is one reason I love music so much; it is something I will never be able to do. But if I could play guitar, I would want to play like one of these:
Stevie Ray Vaughn
Eddie Van Halen
What I didn’t include here are three jazz guitarist I got to see once â€“ Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin and Paco De Lucia. Their virtuosity is really beyond comparing to anything I have ever witnessed. And yet, those listed above carry lasting memories for me in their music and in my awesome air-guitar abilities.
I don’t know Mike Campbell, Michael Timmins, Steve Howe or any of the jazz guitarists. Tell me about them; I’d like to find some of their music. Agree with you about the other greats.
