there's always the option of making a separate "appreciation thread" for every guitarist, potentially.

that said... i'm trying to improve the front page here.

I agree. That is what I am doing with Jack White, The Beatles, Pearl Jam and the next will be Frusciante.

Steve Hackett

The Musical Box (Genesis, 1971) Our first introduction to Steve Hackett's playing after he joined Genesis and he does so in a very restrained manner, adding very simple layers of guitar and faint arpeggios to add depth to the track rather than dominate it. That is until about 7 minutes in where and Banks tears things up with a storm of duelling lead guitar and keyboard.

The Return of Giant Hogweed (Genesis, 1971) This one features Hackett far more prominently, starting off with one of the first examples of two-handed tapping in rock playing a classical-sounding motif in harmony with Banks' keyboard, some solid riffing throughout and a top-notch solo toward the end.

Horizons (Genesis, 1972) An early example of Hackett's classical guitar playing. A development on a theme from a Bach piece, this is relatively simple but nonetheless beautiful for that.

Supper's Ready (Genesis, 1972) This 23 minute epic features a large amount of superb playing, including another tapping lick and some brilliant riffing in 9/8 time. My favourite bit, though, comes during the climax of the song with Hackett playing a flurry of lead licks, bends and volume swells which lead into and embellish a repeated theme.

Dancing With the Moonlit Knight (Genesis, 1973) Very probably my favourite Hackett performance with Genesis. The simple chord riff with the bridging trill he plays at the beginning and end of this song (and reprises on a later one) is beautiful. What originally hit me about this song however, was his barnstorming solo around 3 minutes in after Banks kicks in with a proto-metal keyboard riff. Awesome stuff.

I'll leave it there for the time being, as its getting pretty later where I am. Stay tuned for more.

It's listed first chronologically and then by track order. There are two more tracks from Selling England By the Pound in the remaining five Genesis tracks I have down for him.

i added the Peter Green and Eric Johnson lists.

the following are still pending:

Adrian Smith
Roy Buchanan
The Beatles
Duane Allman
Joe Satriani
Dick Dale (?)
Tipton/Downing
Scottie Moore
Andy Timmons
Ritchie Blackmore (?)
Tony Iommi
Jimmy Page
Jimi Hendrix
Steve Vai


if someone has started working on one of them, i'd like them to complete/revise the list...

i think we've had at least 3 jimmy page lists... either one person does a thorough job and we post that, or we can combine the lists and give credit to three people, though that would be messy.

i hope rusty returns soon and finishes his blackmore list. it was so excellent.

Thats the Duane Allman list, George. I do remember you saying that many of the session songs I have included don't feature Duane in the spotlight, but in the background. I really do enjoy his playing on all of these tracks, but I suppose that for a track to be "essential" it should maybe be relatively guitar-centric. I am thinking about just removing a fair amount of those session songs. And the live portion is obviously very one-sided, a direct result of my not knowing much live Allman Bros aside from Fillmore East. Any recommendations for that would be greatly appreciated.

i think you have most of duane's essential studio stuff with the allmans. maybe nick or rv or someone else could comment on this.

i still think you should add his playing with johnny jenkins to the session list.

im a bit caught up in things, plus I need to do some listening to some more Page stuff, but i should be able to come up with one soon enough.

think gray's done good work on the allman list and it should be fine enough with his last draft.

Ooooh, it's been a while since I was heavily into Shawn's music, but I still love it dearly, so I should be able to come up with a proper list that encompasses most of his career.
