  1. The Most Underrated Guitarists Ever

    Regarding your list of underrated guitarists, I couldn't agree with you more. Texture, melody, and harmony are so often ignored in dicussions of great guitar playing - not to mention rhythm, with which even fewer guitarists are inventive. Instead, guitarists typically derive their critical paradigm from classical music, classic rock, blues, and metal/hard rock, in which intonation, mechanical proficiency, and speed are prized above all else. I wouldn't subtract anything from your list, but I might personally add Graham Coxon of Blur (formerly, and unfortunately), Jim Moginie/Martin Rotsey of Midnight Oil, Francis Dunnery, Andy Partridge of XTC (at least for the way he composes for the guitar), Ani DiFranco, and Curt Kirkwood of the Meat Puppets... not to mention the giants Charlie Christian, Staney Jordan, and Django Reinhardt, as well as other scores of overlooked jazz and experimental musicians. A good guitarist should be more than a sound performer and soloist. Those are important. However, a good guitarist should also be a composer, rhythm player, and aural experimenter. I also read that you are unhappy with the Washington, DC music scene. Honestly, I don't know much about the state of music here, having recently moved to the area. Are you interested in helping to change the scene here for the better? I ask because it seems like we have some musical common ground, and I am looking to assemble a unique kind of band (see my post at http://www.dcpages.com/forums/index.php?sh...showtopic=2915). Let me know if you are interested. My e-mail is sfonzo@aaahawk.com.
  2. Looking For Band Members

    Singer/guitarist seeking additional guitarist, bass player, and drummer for rock/alternative band. Influences include (but are not limited to) Screaming Trees, Smashing Pumpkins, Midnight Oil, Tom Waits, The Doors, Radiohead, Nirvana, Danzig, They Might Be Giants, The Stone Roses, Blur, Mudhoney, The Replacements, Soul Asylum, Buddy Holly, The Church, Meat Puppets, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and the Heartbrakers... Should be interested in multiple genres, including 80s/early 90s underground rock, alternative rock, jazz, folk, singer/songwriter, punk, indie, 50s/60s rock'n'roll/rockabilly, psychedelic, heavy rock (not metal), but above all: An interest in being creative with melody, harmony, and rhythm and a desire to play and compose ORIGINAL SONGS. We will seldom play covers, if at all. Looking for intelligent, energetic, witty, and cooperative individuals who want success in the music business, and are willing to work at it, but who will not compromise their integrity and ideas just for commercial gain. This all sounds serious and heavy, but I assure anyone interested that I am a patient, open-minded person who is looking forward to meeting and working with like-minded artists... and eventually achieving great artistic success. I have plenty of rehearsal space and song material, and have already received one solicitation for a record deal. Please e-mail me at sfonzo@aaahawk.com if you would like to meet or if you just want to discuss/ask questions over the computer or the phone.
