OldFogey;283333 said:I think we all know what BehindBlueEyes is going to say... (sorry couldn't help myself. BAD BOY!)Alex is a good choice. For me -- Mick Taylor. Like Alex -- not a flash guy. He just made every song he played on better. Example: compare Country Honk from Let it Bleed to the single version of Honky Tonk Woman. The difference -- all that classic guitar stuff was Mick. He didn't have to even play a solo to make the song memorable. His solos were tasteful. They built as if they were pre-composed (they weren't, they were improvised.) Mick was pretty unique in his slide playing in that he played everything in standard tuning, which makes it much harder.BTW, one reason Mick left the Stones was because he didn't get writing credit for a lot of the stuff he did.The flash guys may get all the hype, but the great ones put the music first.
