southparkcpa Posted January 12 Share Posted January 12 6 hours ago, THE BARON said: Beck is the more technical player by far. He's a player's player. Gilmore reached a lot more people. From the rock/pop genre, consider Bob Mould. He played a lot of amazingly creative guitar, but few know his name. Gilmore's non innovative, non technical work had the bigger impact. Same broad appeal with another player that I consider to be similar to Gilmore. AC/DC guitarist Angus Young. All taste and feel. Not innovative, but so many ears happily consumed his vibrato flavored blues. It's a fair debate as far as where the bigger value lies. I play bass and I would much rather listen to John Paul Jones, John Deacon or Andy Fraser over Less Claypool. So I majored in Bass in college. Played in orchestra BUT play jazz and rock a Fender Precision . Agreed, never been drawn to the love for Claypool. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
