I'll dig through my stuff. He does mostly soundtracks. In fact, If you've ever seen Crossroads (which, by Presidential decree everyone should), he did most of the guitar work in that one with a little help by Steve Vai. Crossroads, just in case you're not familiar, is a take off on the Robert Johnson story.
It's an older movie, and worth watching at least once a week.
Cooder does know how to slide.

Biker13;c Thanks, I'll check into "Crossroads" as well. I once saw Roy Buchanan open up for Johnny Winter in a small bar in NH. The place only held about 300 and we sat right up front. IMHO Buchanan was every bit as good as SRV at times. I've never seen anyone do some of the things he could do with a guitar. Maybe that's why the Stones asked him to join after their old guitarist died? So many of the good ones died young. I'd love to see Johnny Winter one more time. ;c

I've never seen J.W. or Buchanan live, but I truly admire their playing. IMO, Johnny Winter And is one of the top 3 live albums of all time. Johnny is the main reason I've always wanted an old Gibson Firebird.
BTW, believe me, you'll enjoy Crossroads. You'll wanna get out your coricidin bottle and start sliiiiiidin'!

Try his debut CD first, "Ry Cooder". It's heavily rooted in blues and he does a killer version of Blind Willie Johnson's "Dark is the Night, Cold is the Ground"

Don't bother with his soundtrack albums until you taste his studio stuff.

Other non-soundtrack CDs you might listen to are:
"Into the Purple Valley"
"Boomer's Story"
"Chicken Skin Music"
"Get Rythm"
"The Slide Area"
"Bop Till You Drop"
"Jazz" (my least fav, but still good)
"Buena Vista Social Club" (Cubano acoustic music)

He also is on John Hiatt's "Bring the Family" (a very good CD)

My favorite soundtrack of his is from the movie "The Long Riders"

Most of my favorites have been listed but I'd like to add Chet Atkins and Danny Gatton (http://www.dannygatton.com/) .

Chet's duets with Mark Knopfler and Les Paul are really something wonderful.

Danny Gatton was a DC/Maryland guitarist who never got the fame he deserved. I like his stuff because he could play many different styles, and play them damn well.

Yes I play guitar, but I've never looked at one of the Kerry King models you're talking about. From reading the BC Rich forums, if you can afford a bit more get the NJ series. You get better inlays, pickups, bridge, and the headstock is painted as well. I actually ordered an American handmade Kerry King V about a month ago. It will look identical to the one in the Korg tuner ads. The bad thing is it was horribly expensive and I have another 11 months or so wait on it.

ESP has had issues with American guitar makers due to possible copyrights of certain guitars. The most notable is the Gibson Explorer pattern ESP which was popularized by James Hetfield. Gibson felt that ESP was infringing on their market so a suit was threatened. As such you can no longer buy an ESP explorer in the US but they are available elsewhere in the world.

Alexi used to play Jackson Randy Rhodes Vs I believe but when they were bought by Fender they wouldn't make what he wanted so he went to ESP. So ESP makes a Rhodes V shape but it's not available in the US due to reasons outlined above. Thus the only way to get these super rare models is to have a connection in another country such as Japan where they're made and get one sent over to you. I think I have such a connection and the white and black/yellow versions will run $3700 which is a lot but they are built in the ESP custom shop.

Lately I have been visiting amplifier web sites, like THD, Bogner, and Randall and they have a lot of MP3's of demos of their amps. I have discovered several guitar players who just kill, but I have not heard of before.

In no particular order:

Freddie King - all the instrumentals
Jimmy Vaughn - with the T-Birds - 1st album the best
Ronnie Earl - maybe my favorite
Bill Kirchen - "Hot Rod Lincoln" medley is awesome!
Danny Gatton - Harlem Nocturne is unbelievable
Kent Dykes - of Omar and the Howlers
Duke Robillard - with the Pleasure Kings - not the Jazz stuff.
SRV - like the older brother better.
Roy Buchanan
Junior Brown
Johnny Winter - the Alligator recordings
Joe Kubek

The ones I've seen live:

SRV
Jimmy Vaughn
Ronnie Earl
Johnny Winter
Duke Robillard
Kent Dykes
Jimmy Thackery
Buddy Guy - big dissapointment!
Billy Gibbons

To BlindboyJoe: This is a great group, especially Kenny Burrell. I believe he was probably the greatest, left handed guitarest, of his time. papajoe

My favorite Geetar player depends on what mood I'm in. Sometimes it's Zakk, sometimes it's Stevei ray, other times it's these new kid shreaders comin' out.

Okay, my favortie of all time I saw on the tele real late at night when I was a teen. I remember flipping through channels looking for something to watch and I came upon this kids playing an guiatr on the religious chann. I was floored, not cuz he was saved or any of that crap, but becuz he had NO ARMS!!!!!! He was playing with his feet for cryin' out load! Now that, is dedication.

John Mayer (serously, have you heard his live trio album?)
Robert Johnson
Tom Waits (More of a song writer/piano than guitar)
Jimi Hendrix
SRV
Scott Henderson

Saw Tommy Emmanuel last fall in Okc, was just awesome. He can just tear up a gweeter.

Had a few lessons from Nick Wheeler of All-American Rejects, before they went national, and he was pretty good, for a kid.

Tell your friends' 12 year old son.....thanks.

I don't even like most of that kind of playing, but hearing him, I can appreciate the time and talent that took to accomplish, and it was, in a word, excellent.

Right now mine is Andy Mckee(pull him up on youtube to see him play). This guy is so awsome. I had been wanting to learn guitar for a while, when I heard him play it motivated me to pick up a guitar. I don't know if I can ever do what he does, but I am learnin'.
