It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Great guitarists

I did one of those My Top Five things over on FB, and here's the ones I chose off the top of my head, although Clapton is ALWAYS king:

eric clapton, Tom Scholz, Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix and The Edge.

My friend Tracey added:

Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, Pete Townshend, Mark Knopfler, Joe Perry, Joe Walsh, Keith Richards, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, BB King, Jerry Cantrell, Jeff Healy .... OMG, how can there by just 5 .... there's no way :)

My sister G added:
Django Reinhardt, John McLaughlin, Jeff Beck, Robin Trower, Larry Coryell, Ernie Isley, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Steve Vai, Ry Cooder, Robert Johnson, T-Bone Walker...too many to name.

I then added:

Joe Satriani, Jerry Garcia, Jeff Beck, Johnny Winter, did any of us mention BB King? James Taylor, Steve Earle, Johnny Cash (yes, really), Bruce Springsteen, Danny Kortchmar...

Who else, my little cupcakes? I'm curious to see just how many guitar greats we can all come up with.

Borderline symptom of the day: curious

David Gilmour. Have you ever watched him play? He doesn't just play the guitar, he possesses it as a tool and uses it. There are no extraneous movements, just a focus on using the tool to produce the sounds he requires. In his younger years, he looked really hot doing it too but now that he's older, not so much. *laugh*

Oh God, how could I forget him???

I would have to add Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Frank Zappa, Yngwie Malmsteen, Eric Johnson, John Petrucci, Reb Beach, Zakk Wylde, Randy Rhoads, Tony Iommi, Nuno Bettencourt, Ritchie Kotzen, Tom Morello, Robert Johnson, and Steve Stevens

with honorable mention to Warren DeMartini, Mick Mars (highly underrated), Slash, and Ted Nugent

Now don't get me started on bassists.

Robert Fripp (King Crimson & many more), Alex Lifeson (Rush), Richard Thompson (Fairport Convention & solo), Steve Howe (Yes & others), Allan Holdsworth, John Petrucci (Dream Theater), Vernon Reid (Living Colour), Adrian Belew (solo, recent King Crimson), Adam Jones (Tool).

Ah! I was just about to amend my list to include Robert Fripp and Adrian Belew!

Robbie Robertson
Adam Jones
Tom Morello
Jerry Harrison
Travis Meeks
Matt Bellamy
Brian May
Phil Knight

phil ochs! the dude is horribly underrated
