Re: OT: Who do I remind you of?



That's a good one too.  Big name, similarity.  Another good one MIGHT BE David Lindley.

>> Dear list friends, I have a question I wanted to put out to any of you who have heard me play, The reason I'm asking is I'm about to put out my first solo music in ages and the first in a way that anyone anywhere can access it. and I've been asked this question by CD baby who is handling my distribution,  initially,   List 3 musicians you sound the most like? And honestly I can't  really say. I actually don't particularly care to compare in this way, but for the sake of marketing i'm giving it a go. I would gravitate toward naming influences, particularly those who's audience I would love to cultivate. But it would be presumptuous of me to name an influence like Jeff Beck, or David Torn, or Terje Rypdal, Bill Frisell, etc..   or any of a number of guitarists, simply because I don't think I sound like any of those guys. However, there have been enough gigs over the years where some complete stranger comes up and says they remind me of such and such: Adrian Belew, was the cultural reference point in a club in Osaka for two young dudes in 1992, who were watching me play. So I'm interested to know what you my Cyber pals have to say and I ask any of you who care to comment, does my playing remind you of anyone?
