SRV has such great dynamics in his playing. He took the best of all the great blues men and melded it into his own special mix. There is no "greatest guitarist in the world" but there are legends, and he is definately one of those bright stars.

A fav tune? There are just too many and leaving one out would be a crying shame.

SRVVVVVV!!! Love the guy, probably the biggest influence in my soloing. Gotta love all the classics, I was happy to hear Pride and Joy in a Ford commercial, or whatever car it was. My favorite's probably his cover of Little Wing. I came in my pants the first time I heard it. But maybe that was from my gf jackin me off at the same time... :idea:

Lenny is probably my favorite song of his because of all the emotion he puts in to it. If you go to the other SRV thread you can read a funny story that i posted.

I like him.


SRV thread is in the blues forum, on the first page, and is epically long.

In my opinion, hes the best electric blues player. His feel and technique can not be beat. My playing style is basically based around him, but lately i have been listening to a bit more jazz

Not really. I find his style/tone a bit insipid. meh, he's alright.

I am unswayed, he was a good guitar player and an alright singer but there are loads of people who are better. I can see why people like him so much, he was pretty unique and had a good personality and stuff but I don't think he's as godly a guitar player or blues guy in general, as everyone makes him out to be. I think it's just another case of someone dying young/tragically/whatever and then people automatically put them up on a pedestal. (Kurt Cobain anyone?)

So yeah, he's okay, I like him, but I don't worship him like alot of people.

My favourite song of his is either Tinpan Alley or Dirty Pool. Good slow blues.

I love all his tunes. But if I had to pick a favorite it would be life without you.
