Thread Name: Really Good, Unknown Guitarists
Subject: RE: Really Good, Unknown Guitarists
Hi, Gurney. I'm still in Coventry, and still playing, after having had a meteoric rise to obscurity. I was delighted to find my name mentioned alongside the other guitarists in this thread- they are all famous! There is still a lively music scene here with a session at 3pm at The Old Ball ( a pub, not a description of me!), and I'm hosting an open mic thingy at the Foleshill Ex-Servicemen's Club tonight (Sunday).
I can mention two guitarists , Mick Stuart- brilliant blues and contemporary fingerstyle player, And Ron Priest, Jazz/Whatever, who seems to be able to do brilliant accompaniments to anyone, using chords nobody else knows, that I don't think are well enough appreciated.
It is almost invidious to select just two, but I thought that would do from me. I have met so many brilliant guitarists over the years(and other instrumental players) But that is what is so great about this hobby/passion. And they are (usually) such nice people, too.
