Schecter4lyfe...why don't you wander over to the shred forum and tell them how "tecnicly skilled" A7X are. When the flaming is done, just stop and think for a second...you don't need to be a flashy guitar player to be good. You don't even need to be a good guitar player to be a good artist. If the rest of the world was as narrow minded as you, legends like Bob Dylan would be unheard of today.

So **** off.

Threadstarter, someone earlier mentioned the Beautiful Girls and I've gotta back them up on this one, they are an incredible band and you should definitely check them out. Their myspace has some of their better songs on it, hope you enjoy!

You realise this isnt the pit don't you???
you can't come here and talk crap like that and FYI he is a pretty good Guitar Player and he would get more of a crowd going than A7X ever will.


TS Listen to some Josh Ritter you might like him.
#19
SChecter is a moron... jack is the greatest!!! that guy only likes music where the artist is mad at their father and wines and cries in their songs. any way Ben Harper, Donovan F., Justin King, Jack's buddy G-Love and Special Sauce, and anybody with any real songwiting ability not like Schecter's crap.
#20
anything on his record label you would probably like. Matt Costa, G. Love and Special Sauce, Ben Harper, Mason Jennings, some acoustic John Frusciante might tickle your fancy, John Mayer would work aswell.
#21
It's not exactly the same but I like the John Butler trio and John mayer is good too.

Make sure to get "sunday jen" that ones their best.

People have already covered most of the main ones, but I'd again second John Mayer. Not exactly the same, but Jack Johnson's my favorite recording artist and I really like a lot of Mayer's stuff as well. He plays a lot of his electric stuff just as good acoustic, too.
#30
Yeah check out John Butler Trio, John Butler is an incredible musician, new album out soon, cant wait

Wow, logic..on the internets. I approve of thee, good sir.

Thats the same argument I use when I venemously defend Kurt Cobain...right before I punch the person who doesn't like him ! :P

Technical ability does not equal brilliant guitar playing. It's in the soul, dammit.
#32
yeah well no matter how much soul you have if you play guitar like blink182 you still sound like shit.
#34
Check out Amos Lee, Ben Harper, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, there are a lot, can't think of them atm though.

PS listening to the beautiful girls myspace atm, I like it.
Edit: I REALLY like it.
Fender Highway One Stratocaster
Seagull S6+Cedar

You check out the cover of High Tide Low Tide that Jack Johnson and Ben Harper did together. Other than that, they do some other stuff together, and Ben Harpers also really good.

Who cares...

So what if Jack Johnson isn't the best acoustic player out there, he plays with feeling, and he is extremely creative with his lyrics. I think the lyrics are most important to him, acoustic guitar must be just the instrument he chose and the style he wanted to ornament the lyrics. Just because this is in the acoustic forum doesn't mean that he has to be amazing at the guitar. He's great, not the greatest, so what.

This might be kind of a far stretch, but Sublime does have that laid-back vibe
