Underated? Reeves Gabrels. Played with Bowie's side band in the late 80s early 90s, Tin Machine. I heard them on Saturday Night Live and went out and bought the CD. He's a great player and Bowie allowed him alot of latitude. Interesting story how Bowie discovered him. I forget but it was like Gabrels wife worked for Bowie or knew his wife or something, and slipped a demo of Reeves to Bowie, because Reeves wouldn't do it himself. HE thought it would be tacky. So she did it against his will. Anyway, last I heard Reeves was still playing in Bowie's current band. Not a big Bowie fan, but let's not forget he gave us SRV.

Now, let me say that these picks of mine are not guitar gods, but they are underrated players:

1) Willie Nelson - don't laugh!
2) Bruce Springsteen - I mean it!
3) Donald 'Buck Dharma' Roeser - from Blue Oyster Cult (for those that don't know).

06.08.00, 08:51 PM
Very interesting House. I remember watching that SNL episode, and thinking, he is kind a cool. I don't know if SRV is an underated is most parts of the world, but he is still played, and love down here. He has a special place in my heart, that is for sure. Great loss, no doubt. Out.

houseofpain
06.08.00, 09:30 PM
gosh no track. No chance SRV is underated! I mean a white boy from Texas that plays the blues like that? I am just saying dont' crack on Bowie, cause he had SRV for awhile. I don't particularly care for Bowie, but respect his work with SRV and Reeves, because they are real guitar players.

Good point Ian. Eric Clapton himself once said that in his opinion, the 2 best guitarists both came from Ohio. Joe Walsh was one of them. The other was Phil Keaggy. Seriously under-rated guitarist, for the main reason that most people outside of Christian music have never heard of him.

I'll also agree with the choices of Springsteen and Reeves Gabrels as underrated. But Willie Nelson???? Yeah, he's a good songwriter, but his guitar playing is pretty basic from what I've heard.

I've always thought that Willie Nelson, while never a guitar god, has never been credited as the great guitarist I believe he is. He plays like a rythym guitarist, nothing over-the-top, but definitely underrated. He can pick really well and you should see the guitar he plays. It looks like someone put a hand grenade inside of it. http://www.vhlinks.com/vhlforum/smilies/biggrin.gif

Jake E. Lee - Not his stuff with Ozzy. But rather his stuff with Badlands, specifically the Voodoo Highway album.

Jimmy Herring - Used to play with Aquarium Rescue Unit and Jazz is Dead. Just replaced Dickey Betts in the Allman Bros. He's phenominal.

Rod Dangle
06.15.00, 11:42 PM
I haven't seen Jimmy Herring live but I've heard good things about him, some friends of mine have seen him before. I have heard some of the Aquariam Rescue Unit stuff, your right, he is pretty good......How about Marc Ford?? Black Crowes went downhill when they fired him.

Since you guys put me in creative mode today,
I'll go on record to say:
Jimmy Herring - incredible guitarist. I agree totally
Trey Anastasio - that guy from Phish is really good and can play everything
Scott Henderson - he showed the whole world how to play a mean fusion guitar with Jeff Berlin, then with Tribal Tech and then with fusion
Shawn Lane - his great technique is immense. His music is a sure run of notes, but he's still unknown compared to Malmsteen. Why?
Joe Walsh and Tommy Bolin - the two guys are/were awesome. Actually I believe Tommy Bolin did the best work in James Gang, and was more gifted. His first Billy Cobham record (Spectrum) and his Teaser are awesome.
Springsteen? Why not Danny Kortchmar instead! Danny "Kootch" Kortchmar is indeed a great guitarist himself. You can remember he was gonna produce the never-heard Cherone record. But his work with Jackson Browne and Don Henley was very good.
Andy Timmons - that guy from Danger Danger now's gone solo and with Simon Phillips band. He's a helluva player friends. Perfect in every note.
Rik Emmett - this guy is a sure hit. He's got everything, he can play everything, every genre, and he can sing everything.

Steely
06.16.00, 08:12 AM
Definitly agree with Trey, Scott Henderson and Shawn Lane!

Here's another one, Alex Skolnick (ex-Testament, ex-Savatage, Skol-Patrol, Attention Deficit) Attention Deficit is with Tim (Herb Alexander from Primus and Micheal Manring...check it out if you haven't.

ddregs
06.16.00, 04:21 PM
Steely,
actually I LOVE Alex Skolnick's playing on Michael Manring's Thonk. He and Steve Morse tear the house down there! Great call http://www.vhlinks.com/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif
Another guitarist that really I didn't think was so good is Andy Summers from The Police.
He has such a distinctive sound, he plays very well classic guitar (listen to Jon Lord's Sarabande, the keyboardman for Deep Purple), and then soon after Police disbanded, he went on to play New Age and then Fusion stuff beautifully. Really underrated.

Rod Dangle
06.16.00, 06:35 PM
Scott Henderson released 2 blues cd's 'Dog Party' & 'Tore Down House', both excellent cd's. I perfer 'Dog Party' but I think that one is a little hard to find. If you ever come across it....Buy it, it's worth it.

Thanks for the suggestion, Rob.
You know what, when I first read they were BLUES records, I thought about standard blues, and I really don't love that thing. Now I'll put them in my shopping cart.
I own all the Tribal Tech stuff, and some of it is really killer. Vital Tech Tones and Vital Tech Tones 2 (due to this month) are well worth buying, if you don't have them already. http://www.vhlinks.com/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

By the way Guitar Player 1980 poll he came in # 2 Also Rocky George from Suicidal Tendecies comes to mind. Now that guy can TEAR IT UP! My top 3 r Vai,George, VH. Lata

Hmm...I don't know much about famous guitar players, but I think that ALL OF YOU should be listing Nuno Bettencourt. If you haven't heard ALL of the Extreme albums, you wouldn't know how great he actually is. Sure, their first album was repetitive, but check out the other ones. He really is a great guitar player. One of the best I've ever heard.

Joe

Chadillac
06.23.00, 02:22 PM
I think Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi is really underrated. He is an awesome blues player and he has style, his solos may not be of EVH caliber but they always show finesse and fit the song very well. Before you rip on him, take a listen to "Stranger In This Town" and you'll see what I mean.

Wow! Never thought there would be so many John Denver fans here! You guys hear his new single yet?? It goes like this......


Took a flight from Monterey and I never came back.
Bought a plane from a kit that was built by a quack.
Jumped in the cockpit and downed a six pack.

And now I'm an ocean buoy.

Well, it's hard when you're flyin' and your sluggin' on a bottle.
Flying in a plane that's an experimental model.
Reached for Jim Beam, but instead I grabbed the throttle.

Oh God, I'm an ocean buoy.

Well, I grabbed the controls and I started to fiddle.
Got flames coming up on my face like a griddle.
Air flight's nothing but a funny funny riddle.

Oh God, I'm an ocean buoy.

Well, my head's chopped to pieces
And my body's full of dents.
They identified me by my guitar's finger prints
I tried to dry out but instead got a rinse.

And now I'm an ocean buoy.

Well I'm feeling kinda down and
I'm sinking kinda low.
In the undersea world of Jacque Cousteau
Bobbing up and down when the trade winds blow.

'Cause now I'm an ocean buoy.

Well, I grabbed the controls and I started to fiddle.
Got flames coming up on my face like a griddle.
Air flights nothing but a funny funny riddle.

Oh God, I'm an ocean buoy. Woohoo!

When the plane dove down it was nothing but a riddle.
My pants got wet when I started to piddle.
George Burns appeared beside me and we prayed just a little.....

Woo! Oh God, I'm an ocean buoy.

Definitely. You really need to check out Ebbet's Field '74, this was the kind of stuff that made Purple hire him. There's a version of 'Stratus' originally from Spectrum that will blow your head clean off - email me if you want an MP3. They also just released the MK4 rehearsal tapes - some awesome jams there, too bad things had already soured by the time they came to record 'Come Taste The Band'.

I guess you probably like Steve Morse with a username like ddregs? I was at his wedding a couple of years ago - or more precisely at a gig where he got married on stage. We met him afterwards and gave him a wedding present, and got to chat for a while http://64.176.3.141/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

I'm with you Top Jimmy. Frank was awesome. It just blows me away that he would just improvise his solos every night. He didn't always pull out the greatest solos, but when he did, they were incredible.

I'd also like to throw in Mike Keneally. He played with Zappa on the 88 tour and has been the 2nd guitarist/keyboard player for Steve Vai the last couple of tours. However it's his solo stuff that I love. This guy can play guitar, keyboards and sing like a MF. On top of that, he's an incredible songwriter. I highly recommend checking him out. http://www.keneally.com

Agreed 110%. Mike Kenneally is a monster, not human. With Vai I saw him playing a note-per-note solo with one hand on his guitar and one hand on his keyboard. Truly gifted (maybe overgifted...) http://64.176.3.141/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

Hmmm...I like the Zappa pick as underrated. A lot of people don't look at him as a guitar player...or can't get past Dweezil.

I've always been partial to Jason Becker. I think the guy could play shit across the board, and would have really made a statement with the instrument had he stayed healthy. Who knows what may happen down the line. Hopefully we'll find a cure...and get him back to playing. When he did play...he wailed.

I'll say it again , ROBIN TROWER is a bad ass guitar player yet his name never comes up that much . He simply blows Jimmy Page away IMO , Page was a good producer and songwriter but like Eddie Van Halen says , he plays like a 2 year old http://www.vhforums.com/vhlforum/smilies/biggrin.gif
