I think everyone will agree that the guitar is an essential rock music instrument. The history of rock and the guitar - its sound, technique, musical harmonic and rhythmic complexity etc. are so closely interconnected that I think it's difficult to think about the one without the other. Name up to 5 (ok, max. 10 if it's not enough) guitar players who in your opinion are the most historically important figures of all time. Let's take into account the rock/blues/jazz-rock world 'cause 'pure-mainstream' jazz or classical guitar playing are IMO another story. I will be tempted (if this thread is succesful enough) to count the votes (1st place - 10 points, 2nd - 9, etc) in a couple of weeks or months time to announce officially who's the most important guitarist of all time according to CA community. And what players' names follow The King. This is what's it all about My candidates: 1. Jimi Hendrix 2. Robert Johnson 3. Jimmy Page 4. Stevie Ray Vaughan 5. Steve Vai A honorable mention - Lightnin' Hopkins - IMO the most underrated bluesman of all time and a fantastic classic blues guitar player.
I think the title of this thread is self-explanatory. Let me start with these three songs: From the fantastic 1970 Royal Albert Hall concert. From the 'Black' Album. [video=youtube;CD-E-LDc384] I once damaged my foot tapping to the thythm while watching this DVD BTW I used to say that for me after Rage Against the Machine (meaning after circa 2000) not much happened in rock. I'd love somebody to prove me wrong.. Let's have fun!!!
Bimal Kalpa Hazarika posted a topic in Music Analysis - Objective & SubjectiveDiscovered Slint a few days ago and downloaded Spiderland (Remastered) in 96kHz/24bit from HDTracks. There is not much of Rock in Hi Res out there. This album is an amazing rock album - It is loopy, psychedelic and you can slowly nod your head along with the music. I feel the SQ is good too - kudos to the remastering engineer? I do not see my boys (2 dogs) nervous - If I plug in Adele - Skyfall from HDTracks I am sure they will leave the room and walk up to mom Anyways I do not have a trained ear - just on the outskirts of audiophilia. After your technical analysis of the files you may feel that they are not up to the mark. I would like to hear your opinion on whether extra monies spent on Hi Res for this album was worth it - I would definitely pay much for the content alone - these guys are awesome. It is not about the money - more about figuring out whether I am hi res enthusiast pretender. So I look forward to hearing your thoughts. For those who have not heard of Slint: If you like Pink Floyd or Led Zep or Tool or Los Natas or Black Sabbath or Nirvana - you will love this particular album - go download it and Enjoy!!!
