Now that I think of it... My MOST UNDERrated guitarist is in fact...


It's sad, I know...BUT It's getting better and taking a leap of faith and entering the monthly competition has really boosted my confidence... so my value (in my eyes) is going up. slowly.

I'm gonna have to weigh in again here with Brett Garsed Cheesy

Not only is the man capable of some of the most beautiful and heartfelt phrasing:

Brett Garsed - Drowning `2004HD

Playing slide guitar in standard tuning.

But also he can tear it up over the changes like a monster:

Brett Garsed - Burgers In Bed 2004 HD

And no Brett Garsed post is complete without mentioning Undoing, which has not only some of the most beautiful note selection but also the piece alternates between 6/8 and 5/8 every bar and yet it feels and flows completely naturally.

Brett Garsed - Undoing `2004

He is the master of hybrid picking, not only is it effortless for him but also he uses all 3 extra fingers on his right hand and it's very unusual to see someone using their pinky like he does.

And yet when he came down here the attendance for his clinics was abysmal, his Durban clinic even got cancelled because literally nobody showed up Sad

and just to finish off here's a track in which he proves it is possible to play a near endless amount of notes and still be tasteful!

Shawn Lane, Brett Garsed Hey T Bone .m4v

With the equally underrated Shawn Lane (My personal hero) who though being pretty much the apex of guitar playing couldn't afford any medical care and eventually died poor and in serious pain Sad

Just the most unbelievable phrasing, emotion and speed  Cool

Most underrated? YOU! All guitarists think they are worth poop on the instrument and beat themselves up waaay too often. So here's to YOU. Because you work hard and you kick ass.

I think Joan Armatrading is not rated as a guitar player but should be. Though when I saw her live some years ago she generally played down her own instrumental abilities, leaving most of the playing to whoever it was in her band. Right at the end of the show she strapped on an Anderson "Strat" and lit the stage up. Even on her many of her own records she's kept her guitar playing out of the lime light.

Last year I had the immense pleasure of seeing her in concert for the second time in my life (Monte Casino). She stood alone at centre stage for the entire performance and with three guitars behind her, an Ovation 6 string, Ovation 12 string and what looked like a plain white Strat. Picking up one at a time... she rocked my brains out.

The end.
