For some reason, I feel as if the jangle pop guitarists of the 80's such as Peter Buck, Johnny Marr, and Mike Campbell aren't talked about enough at least on this forum. Each are influential and have contributed to to alternative rock.

its because all they played ever was beginner music, so no one learning guitar really cares to discuss them, as six months to a year in they could play their entire libraries

Not entirely true, Marr especially a is very talented guitarist. I've been playing for close to year and I find Jimi Hendrix's work far easier than his personally. All I'm saying is despite their influence they aren't really talked about.

That's because this is mainly a website of metal fans, as evidenced by the weekly polls, but they are fantastic players, Mike Campbell might be the most underrated rock lead guitarist in rock history. Johnny Marr's got a totally unique style too same with Peter Buck.
I absolutely adore this solo.

Peter Buck, Johnny Marr, and Mike Campbell .


These guys are SO underrated. Mike Campbell is probably one of the most underrated guitarists ever. Not only his Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers work, but just listen to his playing on Don Henley's "Boys of Summer". Classic. Johnny Marr is also one of the most underrated guitarist ever. His influence is huge.

All you have to do is listen to the catalogs of REM and The Smiths. Their sounds, playing and style defined the music of the 2 biggest and most influential "indie" bands of the 80s.

Shit, R.E.M was even one of the biggest rock groups in the world in the early 90's.

Oh, please dude. That's the lamest shit I've heard. Beginner music?? :roll eyes:

No one discusses them because the same people you talk about don't REALLY hear and understand substance in guitar playing and music. They just focus on technique and how many notes a second a guitarist can play. Technique is not everything. It's not the only measure of what makes a guitarist great. The same people you talk about think The Edge is overrated.
