  1. This is the John butler trio, and the bassist is quite incredible, I need to look into more of their stuff!

    Thanks Icarus for posting that. Yeah I agree, less is more in this kind of setting playing arco with drums and a fingerpicking guitarist (Ok, technically hybrid picking, but JB often uses right hand fingers even when using a pick). This group often gets filed with "blues rock", maybe because of JB's slide work and the "high gain" acoustic ala Monte Montgomery, just goes to show it's hard to get funky eclectic music like this into a box...

    Like banjo? a little modal clawhammer for you...

    How about some more open tuning 12-string + slide...

    and again, listening to the bass on these tracks very tasteful rhythmic and harmonic support. I like it !:cool:
