the greatest guitar player you never heard is roy buchannon
Signed Sealed Delivered, I'm Yours by Stuff

some of the best guitar work i've ever heard.
playing blues licks along any fusion is fun.

try playing over some of those long free form miles davis tunes. they usually stay in one key and are like 30 minutes of vamps so you can solo till your hearts content.
i feel ya dawg. i like a combination of speed and soul. its fun to play fast licks and long phrases but the soul and pitch bends are amazing as well. it all comes from the heart if you truly are feeling the music. it doesnt matter if you play a hundred notes in a solo or just 3
cream era for sure. his tone was beyond magnificent.

best clapton track. crossroads, hands down...flawless victory.
im gonna say Stanley Clarke because i've been in a clarke phaze as of late.

But, Romantic Warrior>No Mystery.

you like romantic warrior more than the funk of no mystery? i mean its a great album but no mystery just takes the cake for me. Majestic Dance is extremely digable tho
The Rite of Spring - Igor Stravinsky
Epiphone double neck (white)

Thanks for the reply dude..
But from his solo records you only recommend two albums ?!
Does he suck that much alone ??

haa no i just only have 3 of his solo albums. I've heard a little bit of 'Electric Rendevous' and i also have 'Land of the Midnight Sun' . Thats really good as well, im listening to it now as a matter of fact

but man Return to Forever is superb is you don't already know that. Chick, Lenny, Stanley, and Al just tear up every song! Celebration Suite Parts I and II is my favorite recording ever!! NO MYSTERY is a total WIN!!!!
maybe Sabrosa, or try some of the other songs on Ill Communication. there's some heavy funk numbers on that one
John McLaughlin - Birds of Fire, Dream (duet with Billy Cobham INSANE!)
Al Di Meola - Flight of the Newborn, Celebration Suite Part II, Ghost Machine

Neither are better. They're both different and it's all about personal taste.

i like where you're goin with this one
Tago Mago by Can, someone on this site brought that album up, so i decided to take another listen to it...definitely interesting!
Quote by romencer17
get Acquiring The Taste. Now.


also, the self titled and Octopus are great too

damn, i came so close to getting Acquiring the Taste one time at a local record store...i regret it too cause i went back later and it wasnt there. ill have to get it somehow

Well, to my surprise, there isn't a Zappa thread aside from the recommendations threads that come up everyonce and a while, but he deserves a thread BIG TIME.

Zappa rules


What do you guys think is his best album?

I have been listening to Joe's Garage a lot lately, but I think Apostrophe or Roxy and Elsewhere takes it though...

you called it man, those are my absolute favorites. the band lineup he had during that time was sooooo gooooood! but i like weasels ripped my flesh and lumpy gravy as well.
i love ZPZ! i've seen em twice and both times they were phenomenal, note for note on some of the most intense Zappa compositions...seriously they're hot!!

o and i saw ray white with them the first time as well, awesome surprise
haa i didn't think there was a gentle giant thread! im listening to "School Days" as I find this thread. i only have the album "3 Friends". any suggestions on another album i should get of theirs?
haha i can't believe im saying this but...check out "Sleep Dirt" by Frank Zappa. its got some strange jazz numbers on there.

John Bonham

And Jeff Beck. How could you possibly leave those out?

why was he so far down the list
