  • Best psychedelic blues guitarist/solo

    Who is the best psychedelic blues guitar player or what is the best psychedelic blues ? Besides Hendrix.

    Frank Marino (Mahogany Rush) or Randy California (Spirit/Kaptain Kopter and the Twirly Birds)...Robin Trower...

          James Gurley, Big Brother and the Holding Company, wasn't maybe the best, but he and his Big Bro mates were certainly pioneers in psychedelic music. As you may know, Big Brotherhttp://www.harmonycentral.com/ was together before Janis and had a different sound after she joined - they had to support her, whereas before the were much more "free."

          took a while to find one that was a 'blues'...but if not pschedelic, then just mind-blowing...Allan Holdsworth, live...if you have never seen him...you should, just to be made to feel totaly musically inadequate

        Lots of great players in this thread.  But, how about some more modern guys?



        Check out more of his stuff if you like Trower, Hendrix, Marino, etc.  EG is one of the best modern players.

            I am thinking Jefferson Airplane and Craig Chaqicso and Whitwe Rabbit.
