This is not only a thread unto itself, but I'd like to divert all these comments from the technical proficiency thread, which Jimi Hendrix is popping up in for some reason. Hence, a thread for musicianship rather than chops. Got somebody whose music gives you the feeling with one note what others take one hundred to say? Bring it here.
This is songwriting, expressive technique or anything, but not lyrics. We're talking guitar music.
I'll kick off with Muddy Waters - just brilliant. Although this thread isn't limited to the blues by any means.

Opinions?

Gary Moore - he really makes the guitar cry with his nice bends and heavy vibrato
#3
David Gilmour

Just wait for Hendrix to pop up in this.

Paul Kossoff put tons of feel in his guitar work; listen to Free Live and you'll see why.

EDIT: How could I forget Gary Moore! I'm listening to Back On The Streets (the album, cause it rocks) right now!!

Off topic, but don't ya think that Slash is just a ripoff of Michael Schenker? I mean, listen to the Sweet Child O Mine solo, and tell me that that isn't a Schenker solo.

Oh well. I recommend the MSG or UFO to all.

HENDRIX all day.

Oops. Did I ruin this thread too??

Jimi was way more expressive than he was technical.

You haven't made it anywhere until they make an action figure of you.

All the people already mentioned, plus Zakk Wylde and the Young Brothers.

Although they aren't the typical "feel" guitarists, it's hard not to notice that Zakk plays every note with a lot of attitude, and Angus and Malcolm convey more raw energy in a simple riff and solo than most of today's metal bands do in a whole album.
#28
Edit: ^this is a pretty good point - feel is more than having the blues.

I agree with the Gary Moore - and his stuff is interesting as much as it is expressive, because while he knows that he CAN say more with one note than ten, he keeps it interesting by playing said ten notes at a pretty impressive speed anyway.

Also, Joe Walsh, although I think Don Felder did the Hotel California solo, which was the most impressive, although the album it was on, while great, felt a bit commercial.

Edit: The poster below nailed it pretty good too

Buckethead, by far. I have never felt so much emotion from any music. Listen to I Love My Parents, Wishing Well, and Whitewash (Live). Honestly, the man is the god of guitar.

Hendrix, Clapton, Slash, Hammett, Santana


Hammett? Like...Kirk Hammett? Hmm... If "Wah" was an emotion, he'd have it down.

On Topic:
Geez, I don't know. There are so many.

I'd have to say Santana. I get cold chills listening to some of his stuff. Slash, Clapton, SRV, and BB King all put a lot of feeling behind their music, as well.
#32
Feel isn't about bending one note and making orgasm faces. Feel can be agression, passion, ecstacy, nostalgia, misery, hope and all other emotions. Anyone whose guitar playing provokes any emotional response, be it a tear in your eye, or a rush of adrenaline, plays with "feel".

Well, as long is their playing doesn't make you hate them.

Actually, Kerry King makes it pretty damn clear that he is ANGRY. That's an emotion.

It could be a cheap Schenker imitation.


I hear some influence but Slash has his own thing going on.


Schenker's thing is just better is all.

Woot. Now I know what it's like to be sigged.

And yes, Kerry King is quite the angry guitarist.

well im stuck somewhere between gary moore and his awesome licks and eric clapton with his pure feeling, depends on what you mean by 'feel' i suppose, claptoon pours out his soul into his songs whenever he plays live, but at the same time gary moore combines his emotions with his songs as he writes them

I mean both. There's soul in the way you play and in the way you write.

But I stress again, expressiveness is more than just soul - listen to some Barratt era Pink Floyd and it's amazing how much of a look into Syd's mind you get, even if it's not guitar music, really.
