Pit,

You know those people, they aren't content with just one instrument or two, they have played every instrument imaginable. So who is your favorite multi instrumentalist/s?

Many song writers are kinda multi instrumentalists too and so I will also ask who is your favorite song writer? Doesn't have to be a multi instrumentalist though

I'll start, I think Steven Wilson is my favorite multi- instrumentalist/songwriter

multi- instrumentalist: definetely John Paul Jones who also happens to write some songs
I'm one of a kind

I've always wondered why Richie Kotzen isn't more well-known. His guitar tone is very warm and intimate, and his singing makes my panties wet. Bi-Polar Blues is such a good album.

I'll break trends and say Matt Bellamy.
Also, Billie Joe Armstrong (whether you like the music or not), Serj Tankian and Glenn Danzig.
#29
Jonny Greenwood plays everything, Dave Grohl is pretty awesome aswell
#30
James Hetfield.

He writes killer riffs and leads, he plays guitar, drums and he sings, I doubt playing bass would be that much of a hassle to him really.

Flame shield up for Megadeth fans.
In my opinion Dave Mustaine is a brilliant guitarist/songwriter, but I don't like his singing that much.
#31
I think it's a toss up between Frank Zappa and Tom Waits.

My cousin plays nearly every instrument under the sun. Well, at least he did til he went to college at IU. Now my aunt says he doesn't play anything anymore.

I am a fan of J. Loren from Hurt though. The 2 times I've seen him live, he broke out some pretty sweet violin solos and he does a lot of other stringed instruments as well.

Even though I'm not really a big fan of his music, I respect Prince's musical ability in that he can write the parts for and play all of the instruments in it.

Played.



OT: Tosin Abasi is probably one of my favourite songwriters for technicality and arrangement, and Dallas Green for simplicity and melody. A C&C/AAL collaboration project with soulful acoustics, post-hardcore structures and insane shredability from Tosin would not work well at all, but would be mindblowing none-the-less.

+1 for elliott.

stevie wonder and prince, obviously. jimi hendrix played a little bass. dylan's an alright piano player. paul mccartney's a damn fine guitar player.
